A while back I went to the movies and I saw the coolest popcorn bucket ever. There on display was Groot staring at me, calling my name, “I am Groot”…which translated to “Nabila, buy me”. I normally never buy food at movie theaters; we all know how obscenely expensive it is. With the price of what you pay, you can easily buy 2 more movie tickets. BUT…how can I say no to Groot, amirite? So I bought a $11 bucket of popcorn just for Groot.
I immediately knew I wanted to turn popcorn bucket Groot into a potted planter Groot. It’s just so perfect, ya know? How could I not? So, I went to my Abuelita’s garden and looked for a plant that would be perfect for Groot. I wanted it to appear as if Groot had hair coming out of it’s head. Unfortunately, Abuelita didn’t have a plant like the one I envisioned in her garden, so I ran to Home Depot and the plant that I found couldn’t have been more perfect!
I actually don’t remember what this plant is called, I just know that it blooms during the day and becomes a hermit at night. According to my Abuelita, they’re nicknamed “Buenos Dias” or “Sonrisa de Gaitan”. According to my mum, they should be called “Mata Despelucada” (translates to: Messy Hair Plant). You know, it kinda looks like me when I wake up…
If anyone knows the name of this plant, let me know please! 🙂

You’ve met with a terrible fate, haven’t you? ❀
Hi there! Nabila here! You can call me Nabi for short if you’d like. This little slice of the internet is dedicated to all of my geeky & weird antics. From fashion posts to photographs of amiibos & other figurines to videogame talk and geeking out over the new Star Wars films.
A couple of things:
❀My full name is Nabila Verushka Nassar. Verushka is a made up middle name I gave myself back in 2010. When I was born my mum didn’t give me a middle name and for most of my life I longed for one. I honestly can’t remember how I came up with Verushka but I’m sure it was a good story.
❀I was first introduced to Star Wars when I was a kid and I’ve loved it ever since. I have to thank my big brother for that one. My favorite character is probably Darth Vader (my huge collection will tell you that). Second favorite character is that badass R2D2, and BB-8 is just plain adorable. He’s like a little hamster you want to protect from the world.
❀I am currently obsessed with The Legend of Zelda. I’ve been playing Ocarina of Time for the past month (ugh why does real life have to interfere with video game time??) and I’m excited for the release of Hyrule Warriors Legends. My name, Nabi, is like Navi and I frakin’ love that so much. You’ll probably find a lot of “Hey! Look! Listen!” around this blog.
❀I was sorted into Slytherin today on Pottermore. Back in middle school & highschool I fancied myself a Gryffindor. I wish Pottermore existed back then. One of my guilty pleasures is Harry Potter fan fiction. Wait what..?
❀I love stickers and snail mail! I have overflowing drawers full of postcards and stationary. I keep telling myself that I can’t buy anymore but..well..that never happens. It’s those Target trips! They always have cute things!! My most prized stationary is my Lisa Frank pack. It’s almost vintage! If you ever want to exchange postcards/letters, I would be so down for that!
❀I currently attend FIU and I’m in the process of getting a Bachelors in Business Management and Photography. I want to have my own photography business one day so I figured I should study business so I know what I’m doing. I’ve also wanted to work for National Geographic…I mean, to get paid to travel and take pictures all around the world?! That’s a dream come true!
Blah Blah Blah wow I wrote a lot for my first post! I basically just wanted to welcome you to my lil blog and got a little carried away! D’oh! ❤
