It’s no news that I’m extremely weak against all things kitsch, so when I saw the Rocket x Lunch collection on Zalora featuring reversible bomber jackets and ugly af crying sloths, I knew that I had to put it into my wishlist.
It wasn’t until a week or two later after the jacket arrived when news surfaced over the Cincinnati Zoo – oblivious to the Streisand effect – asking the internet to please stop circulating Harambe memes when I realised that my ugly crying sloths were actually crying gorillas. Honest to god, I never made the connection despite the huge buddhist ‘Nirvana’ on the back of the jacket; I simply thought that the sloths were crying tears of joy at attaining enlightenment. 😂
Anyway, the big news is that Trump is now our new overlord. I refrain from unraveling my opinions on volatile matters in public spaces, so all I’ll say here is how fascinating my Facebook timeline has exploded with highly-charged sentiment. The range of reactions provides such a fresh insight into the cultivated identities of these individuals, that it actually makes me a little envious at the amount of passion I seem to lack in contrast.
We live in interesting times.
