People are currently recommending me YA titles and I love this so much, I can’t bear it. Honestly, you guys are the coolest people ever. I love that y’all read. I really do love it a lot.
(This is the post, in case you want to rec something or find something to read for yourself.)
hey, followers, i love you.
What she said. <3
This is (a really old picture, like ca. 2007, of) Ain.
Not so long ago, I called her a d-bag because she said she did not miss anybody. She advised me to check her Other Journal so that I would miss her less. So, I clicked on it and looked at the slew of awesome posts she writes of all the awesome kids she has been meeting and all the awesome things she is doing. (She’s in India, teaching, see.)
And for real, if you knew (or knew of) Ain in IRL, it would be this whole WHAT THE FRAK moment because it’s Ain, but skimming through the posts (I am actually supposed to be working, sadsadsad) and looking at her photos, it seems like something she really would do, out of the goodness of whatever it is that is supposed to be her heart.
(That’s supposed to be a joke. She keeps on joking about her life being a black abyss — we’ve created a song about it — and how she hates the world. But you can tell that she really, really doesn’t. And I might get hit by saying this, but she can’t right now, because she’s in India. MOO HA HA.)
Anyway, her advice did not work. Because I miss her moar than I already did.
We’re reading The New York Trilogy by Paul Auster in my LIT class. Today this girl raised her hand and asked my teacher if he was married, because he is really weird, and writes about weird things. Meaning, that people who are weird can’t get married. I said under my breath “I think he’s very good looking, I’d marry him.” My teacher heard me and was like “WHAT DID YOU SAY.” So I told him and then the girl was like “EWWW NO HE LOOKS LIKE A CHILD MOLESTER.” and then I was like “He has beautiful bone structure, and he really knows how to smile with his eyes.” That shut her up.
She is what I’d like to call dumb and immature.
I’m in college.
I love this.
You should come with, my treat! :D You seem like an awesome person to have a coffee-and-book-spree day with! :)
knockyoudown: cool beans! I am excited for your book spree. :)
Aww, that sounds great, but I would feel bad because I’d feel like I’d be taking your monies. Buy great books and tell us about them, instead. :)
British artist Stephen Wiltshire is currently attempting to draw the Manhattan skyline from memory. since Monday October 26th. Wiltshire began filling in an 18 foot canvas at the Pratt institute, Brooklyn. The drawing is expected to be complete by Friday. You can follow his progress through the live webcam here.
Wiltshire diagnosed with autism at the age of three displays an unusually powerful photographic memory that he has applied to rendering city scapes. He can look at the subject of his drawing once and reproduce it accurately with photographic detail, down to the exact number of columns or windows on a building. He memorizes their shapes, locations and the architecture.
Amazing-azing! This is insane.
