Peach!

There is a lot of things you can mix peach with. I can't help but feel that the flavor sort of disappears sooner than I would like it to. Probably because I am used to double apple.

Smoke on fellas!

The 4/20/2016 Experience http://sett.com/thumpedia/the-4-20-2016-experience I have had better 4/20s definitely but this one wasn't bad at all. Really, the only down side was that i ate some not-as-good-as-I-thought leftovers and vomited them out for an hour or so.

We had made edibles (fruity krispy treats and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies) I had some then slept the sickness off for a few hours.

Later, we rolled up some more, took a few hit from the bong, rolled up again, until the lighters all ran out. But that was ok! Because we just migrated to i-hop to have some high-people foods, then to my house where we smoked. Again.

The nauseousness aside, it was a plentiful 4/20! I hope you all were just as stoned as I ways.

now for the 4/21 after party!

Yours truly,

Thumperkat xD

Free the Titties! http://sett.com/thumpedia/free-the-titties For the past few months, I have been thinking of going bra-less. This came to me just for the sake of comfort, but then I decided to do more research on the matter. To my surprise, I found that studies say that not wearing a bra helps your boobs NOT sag! I originally thought the exact opposite.

Upon hearing all the benefits of not wearing a bra, I was convinced to hop on that boat. However, I was curious about what people thought of seeing ma girl's nipples poking out.

I wanted to hear everyone's opinions, but especially the opinions of those on my campus. To get the opinion of my fellow Chanticleers, I posted a post on yik yak, and it got a decent amount of replies. For the rest of the world, I made an AskReddit post which I will link at the bottom.

An opinion that mattered more, however, was my boyfriend. His opinion is the one who took my by surprise. He said that he finds it gross to see a girl's nipples hanging out. He thinks it is perfectly plausible for a girl to choose not to wear a bra, however he thinks she should wear a nip cover, pasties.

Most responses were positive. Many from other ladies that prefer the bra-less life. Many were from guys assuring me that no one really cares. However, especially on yikyak, I pressured them to answer what would go through their minds upon seeing a girl who obviously does not have a bra on. Many of the responses were sexual, one of them was even, simply, "Boobs." One reply urged me to keep my bra on if I have a boyfriend because he would be too jealous. The replies on reddit were much more mature and supportive.

I was slightly offended at first, but I do understand where he is coming from. In a college campus, it makes sense that boys would stare and perceive the wrong image if I were to go around with my nipples hanging out.

To appease both sides, mine and my boyfriend's, I decided to venture into the world of pasties shopping. There are plenty of shapes to choose from! The reviews are mixed between how well they work and conceal. Some say that it was perfect, some say that it only works with darker colors. Some also said that it did work in hiding the erect nipples, but caused a problem as they crease a small crease in it's shape that is obvious.

At the end of the day, I ordered a set of reusable pasties, flower shaped, to try out. This way, I get to be bra free, and the boyfriend is appeased. I can't really deny that he is right about the college kids staring at any nipples they can see.

One of my research links:

Askreddit post:

https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/4fda74/reddit_how_do_you_feel_about_women_who_go_braless/

So, free your titties damn it!

Yours truly,

Thumperkat ^_^ (.)(.)

There is More to Hookah Than You Think! http://sett.com/thumpedia/there-is-more-to-hookah-than-you-think The variety of flavors is not only astonishing, but it also hav]]> Hookah has been a long lasting "hobby" of mine. hookah played a decent part in my upbringing. Growing up in Cairo, Egypt literally everybody smoked hookah, sheesha as we call it, at least once in their life.

The variety of flavors is not only astonishing, but it also have a decent amount to say about the smoker. However, while the variety of flavors seems to be the obviously distinguishing factor in a person's choice in hookah, it's not! A person can have a usual, but still go out of their norm occasionally. However, a person usually only likes a certain pattern.

By pattern and holes I mean the way in which the holes are punctures through the foil that is under the coal. The pattern and the size of the holes can determine the draw and harshness of a person's hookah, as well as how well the tobacco burns. My personal preferred style is the "Arabic" style. This has one bigger hole in the center and then plenty off holes all around. It burns all of the tobacco in the bowl very well until it blacks.

From my experience in America, there are plenty of hookah lounges that only put a few holes, or even make a pattern. The holes are usually made that way to prevent the pull from getting harsh and the patterns for aesthetic value. There is a very simple way to fix a hookah if it becomes harsh. However, since hookah is not considered a tradition here, a lot of people don;t know what to do and end up calling over the employees at the store. Preventing the hookah from getting harsh by having less holes is a way to minimize the work on the employees as well as expanding the demographic of people who can smoke hookah.

Traditionally, fruity flavors are considered more feminine. Different flavors have a higher consistency of nicotine, or even a "harsher" flavor. An example of a harsher flavor would be double apple; which also happens to be my usual order alternating between that and double apple mint. Mixing flavors are also a thing. However, it is also considered a more feminine thing to do. Mint is a very common mixer with any flavor as it doesn't have a flavor as opposed to just a cool feeling.

There is another way to smoke hookah which I have yet to see in the US. In Egypt, we call it "Mu'assel." This tobacco is flavorless and very harsh. there is no foil covering the bowl either. Instead, the burning coal is placed directly on top of the tobacco in the bowl. This is considered the "manly" way of smoking hookah in the Arabic world. Most men, especially military, including my father smoke this at the cafes and lounges.

I will have another post later with information about buying a hookah, tobacco, how to set it up, and what to do.

Disclaimer:

I smoke hookah, a lot. I do not encourage nor recommend this. However, you do you!

Your truly,

Thumperkat <3

Coastal Carolina University http://sett.com/thumpedia/coastal-carolina-university Oh man, It's been a bumpy ride!

The past year harbored so many changes for me it became hard to keep posting blogs or videos, as is obvious by my lack of posts.

From breaking up with my boyfriend to finding another then back to my ex, that merry-go-round has been quite stressful.

Romantic life aside, I have switched schools! Originally, I lived in Northern Virginia with my family while attending NOVA, but I have since moved out on my own to South Carolina to go to Coastal Carolina University.

To be honest, I was excited then quickly let down. The parties were not meeting my expectations, I didn't know many people, had 8 am classes everyday. It was far from ideal. Over the last few months, however, I have grown to really love this place. It is different from what I am used to, but not worse.

Now that I am surrounded with new and different friends, it's hard to want to leave. I can't deny that the warming weather and the very accessible beach played a huge part in the affection I have for my new life.

I am positive it's only going to get more interesting from here and I will keep this blog updated with my not-so-adventurous adventures to the best of my ability!

-ThumperKat over and out :P

My Winter Season Animes http://sett.com/thumpedia/my-winter-season-animes2 So it's a bit late, but I haven't really had the time to post on the blog since the semester started -_- . However, enjoy!!(?)

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso:

Continuing from last season, Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso made it's way up to be potentially one of my top 3 favourite animes of the year! This tear-jerking laugh-invoking BEAUTIFUL piece of art caught my attention first because I knew my boyfriend likes the piano. I thought, "hey it may not be half bad." But boy was I wrong, this anime is so interesting and every episode that comes out has so much more to offer. I am definitely glad Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso is longer than the (expected) 12 episodes.

Your lie in April Trailer 2

Death Parade:

Well, madhouse has done it again, creep the shit out of me that is... While Death Parade will probably not make my top 5 favourite animes of the year, it's certainly up there. I love the idea behind it and the story! It creeps me out, but that makes it all the more enticing to download the next episode and watch it. I'm still not sure what to make it of it, really... I feel I need to watch all of the episodes (once they all come out of course) to have a legit opinion on it.

Tokyo Ghoul RootA:

Yes, I see you all talking shit about the second season of Tokyo Ghoul. and I say, "YOU ARE FULL OF SHIT." Ok, so i'm bias~~ Sue me! The first season of Tokyo Ghouls is EASILY my favourite anime of the season and, potentially, ever. Now, I understand that the plot seems to have been developing mega-slowly and it's a bit hard to tie it all back to the first season at first. That, however, keeps me wanting to watch the next episode,and the next, and the one after that~~ I believe that TG RootA has a huge potential to get on the same level as the first season, and I do expect that much. So far, I am still waiting for the "BANG," but I'm still excited to wait for each upcoming episode to come out. Let's hope I'm not disappointed!

Durarara x2:

Man, season 2 or Durarara, I thought that would never happen. Guess what, though? You won't believe it! There is MORE people for you to get to know!! Now, I am a very big fan of the first season of Durarara, and honestly, I don't know what to expect from this season. I'm not exactly loving it like a did Durarara, but I'm not exactly disliking it either. It's just like watching another Durarara, with MORE people. But, that IS what it is, isn't it?

Tsukimonogatari:

I am also a HUGE fan of the monogatari series! Granted, I haven't watched Nisemonogatari yet.. Don't get on my ass about it, ok?? I will! Someday~ Anyhow, Tsukimonogatari was so much fun to watch. To be honest though, I couldn't finish it in one sitting, even though I tried. The monogatari series has not failed to confuse and/or entertain me, and I am more than looking forward to Kizumonogatari!
