How I Got to Know Bluecloudcandy

One of the people on DeviantArt I admire…

It was freshman year, and I was looking at images of My Little Ponies mashed up with Disney princesses, and I found this picture:

Then when I clicked to see the page, it was in DeviantArt, and it was published by bluecloudcandy, who loved MLP, Disney, Winx Club, and Monster High, and here are her other mashups:

Then in sophomore and junior years, bluecloudcandy was more interested in drawing portraits, like Benedict Cumberbatch, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, and herself.

That inspired me to do portraits of Indian celebrities, like Dharmendra, Asha Parekh, and Daler Mehndi.


And in my senior year, I faced so much stress that I made this poster

with some inspiration from her elaborate doodle, as well as the Middle School books.


So bluecloudcandy is a very inspiring artist that I like to draw in her styles as well. People, like my family and friends, look at my pictures, and I look at bluecloudcandy’s pictures. That’s how we get inspired, from generation to generation.

In Memory of a Beloved Blogger…

Missing one of my friends from “golden” era

A long time ago, it was my sophomore year, and I used to love Harry Potter and Disney so much. I saw a tumblr blog that sorted Disney characters into Hogwarts houses. Its name was The Mouse’s Sorting Hat, and its founder went by sortingdisney, and here’s how its icon looks like:

That’s right. Mickey Mouse wearing the Sorting Hat, right?

And here are some of its posts:

The Gryffindors:(Red frames)

The Slytherins:(Green frames)

The Ravenclaws:(“Blue” frames; the frames don’t look “blue” at all to me, they look more whitish-grayish…)

And last but not least, the Hufflepuffs:(Yellow frames)

Sortingdisney had been very active and prolific during that golden era, but had gone downhill by the dark days of senior year, that it was not making any more posts that year. It was then on the verge of deletion. I, too, had a lot of schoolwork to do then, even more than sophomore year, and I even had a test to take over the following summer, unlike other summers. After the test, I checked sortingdisney, but it was gone and deactivated. I was saddened, so I decided to print its sortings and put them in my memory box. Plus, I made a video of their posts:

May sortingdisney’s soul dwell in our hearts forever! RIP!

Please Bring Back My Favorite Yogurt!

Bring back, bring back, oh bring back my Muller to me, to me…

Once upon a time, in the good old days of the late summer of 2013, when I was a freshman going to sophomore year in high school, we went shopping at Walmart, but when we got to the dairy aisle, something caught my eyes. It was a new brand of yogurt. It was a rich, smooth, silky, thick, creamy, white, yet lowfat yogurt that came in different flavors and shapes. Its name was Muller, Muller yogurt. It came in Muller FrutUp, which was yogurt topped with bubbly fruit mousse, and Muller Corner came in a divided square container with yogurt on one chamber and the toppings, be it fruit, nuts, cereal, or choco balls, on the other.

I loved this new yogurt so much that I almost ate it for lunch everyday, especially at school. Eating this yogurt not only caught my tongue, but it made me feel like traveling around the world, especially going to Europe, particularly Germany, because it was a German-originated brand, and it had the motto “Muller: The European for Yummy”. It was so irresistible that it became my favorite brand of yogurt, even more than Chobani, Yoplait, or Dannon. The Muller yogurt was produced in the Batavia factory of New York and run by Muller Quaker Dairy, a joint venture of leading oatmeal brand Quaker and leading European(particularly German) brand Muller.

My favorite Muller FrutUp flavors were strawberry, peach and passion fruit, and orange. They were sweet, a bit tart, and bubbly. But the lemon one was my least favorite, because of its overly bitter, not so sweet flavor.

And on to Muller Corner, the choco balls were my favorite, because they looked very playful and entertaining.

And in early 2015, that was my junior year, there came the ice cream variety, which resembled a healthier version of ice cream.

But something evil happened in late 2015, or senior year. Muller and Quaker decided to exit their joint venture Muller Quaker Dairy and close their factory. The Muller yogurt line was fading, because and it was all gone by the gloomy summer of 2016, where I had no time for fun stuff. Those were the dark days.

But as the summer was ending, I saw the Chobani flip, that reminded me of Muller Corner.

It tastes delicious, just like the Muller Corner, but I still miss Muller. I miss Muller yogurt and the good old days of 2013-mid 2015, forever. I wish Muller Quaker Dairy was still running, the factory was still open, and the Muller yogurt would still be sold. Please bring back my favorite yogurt! RIP(Return if possible) Muller yogurt!
