We work in the night—We do what we can—We give what we have. Our doubt is our...– Henry James
So I've been incredibly active on Tumblr today
Do you ever have those nights, where perhaps there were several events you could have attended and yet you slept through/forgot about/ignored them all, and now it feels as though your day is incomplete, so you just stay up, later and later, doing nothing* and just waiting for some sense of closure—and you fear that the closest approximate is to just pass out from exhaustion, God knows when**, and...
Baby's On Fire: Sedation! →
thisgirlisonfire: This Web comic just made me laugh until I cried. I had my wisdom teeth removed on Christmas Eve-Eve of my senior year of high school. I was 17. I’d never been put under before— … A great “drugged-out post-wisdom teeth removal story” from my roommate. Some people have all the fun.
Today, I saw this: So I made this: What I’m trying to say is, you don’t need to be extremist and disparage one thing in favor of the other, even if that may seem a stronger point (because really, isn’t there an inherent contradiction in doing design telling others that design is pointless?)—as designers, you’re going to design, for fun, to make a point, to save the...
How to be healthy: Sit down and ask yourself, what could be affecting my brain right now? Are you healthy? Sinus, fatique, and general cold symptoms as the weather has turned. Have you had enough sleep? Missed several classes because I slept through them from exhaustion. Have you been eating well? Orange juice and cookies for dinner. Two pizza rolls for lunch. Only lunch stuff in the fridge....
Clapping your hands when you like a band is way better than clicking some Like...– Yes. From a great concert poster series against social media and for social interaction.
Three-pronged mantra that really expanded into a...
1. Live life as honestly as you can, but in the best way; you don’t need to whine about every small ache or pain, real or imagined. So: tell the truth, the whole relevant truth, and nothing but the truth (which is actually what they want in courtrooms as well). I make this distinction because I believe indulging your complaints and sharing them is not only boring and irritating, but a form...
It's really hard to kill a cat.
It’s true. You don’t believe me, but you take that cat, and you look into its eyes, and even though you hate that cat, you hate that pathetic look in its eyes, you hate everything about that cat because you know that cat so well, you’ve known it your entire life and it’s just like that cat to do this but it really is miserable so you suppose it should die, but you have this...
How Hipsters Break Up?
hipsterdate: I could definitely see someone sending this to me.
This is the song for my morning. I don’t...
Why I No Longer Write, Or, Why I Will Be Writing A...
The problem with the internet is this: I worry. I sit, and I deliberate, and I think of things and flag them in my mind for later. Often this happens when I am listening to someone else speak. It isn’t that you aren’t interesting, but if you see my eyes glaze or fix onto a point somewhere nearby but you just know it’s far, far away, it’s just that I am at every point...

masterkate: Meal#1 On The Menu: A large, thin crust pizza with the works (includes anchovies, a favorite of my father’s) from Muncheez Pizza in Appleton, WI Who’s eating: My 60 year old father & me What are we dishing about: We finally have a talk about my parent’s real relationship as a married… This is brilliant and I wish I could write one of my own. Perhaps I will, but...
Three bad poems
I. These are our new mountains, Here are our new hills; The peaked roofs of suburbia. • II. In cars I can feel the emptiness in my knees; Want for my birthday to drive to a beach— Hear waves instead of silence And feel nothing. • III. Life in 2010: I am just a 20-something With nothing to do And nothing to say for myself.
Boring essays about what I want out of life.
Submitted to my study abroad application, with some extra on the second essay. I’m not entirely sure why I’m even posting these but hell. Essay A: What are your academic goals? How will studying on this specific program complement these goals? Please consider both the content and location of the program’s course(s). I want to get all A’s, not for their own sake but as a...
