i miss boy.

whenever i think about him i tell myself to just stop it and appreciate the summer for what it was, but i inevitably end up curled up in my bed for fifteen minutes straight contemplating what could have been.

i’m excited to go back to RISD, but there’s this sinking feeling that i already know everyone there.  maybe i’m just not ready to see new people yet, but when will i be?  my heart wasn’t broken and there’s no event to get over.  the thought that he’ll just fade away makes me sad.



American Ballet Theatre corps Kaho Ogawa 10 pirouettes

Friendly reminder that if you ever use the term “ballerina” as a pejorative, you deserved to get kicked in the kneecaps by one. And trust me she’ll do damage.


The Fisher Family - Donal Ogue


     “I got both of them from local shelters. When I got her in 2006, the staff told me she was a shepherd husky. I go to the dog park, I’m meeting people with shepherd husky mixes, and they look nothing like her. I get in my car, I’m driving, I look in the rearview mirror, I see these eyes and I’m like, I’ve got a wolf in my car. Then, when she was 10-months old, there was a shepherd breeder and trainer in the dog park, and at the end of the lesson, the trainer came up to me and asked, ‘What kind of dog is that?’ And I’m thinking, Shepherd husky. You should know, you are a breeder. She said, ‘That’s a wolf.’”

Another piece of college advice


I would like to add to my freshman advice and say LEARN THE NAMES OF THE STAFF especially if you see them on a daily basis!!! A lot of people treat the staff like robots which is not okay. If you are personable with them, they will be with you.

An example is there is this check-out lady who I’ve known the name of for a long time, but she’s always really angry-looking so I’m too scared to say anything more than “Hey.” One day I was in a brave mood so I said in a friendly tone “Hey ____, how are you?” and her expression brightened immediately. The kitchen staff that I speak with more regularly are really sweet and almost always give me discounts. Plus they work long-ass shifts so you might as well try to brighten things up for them. 



New device allows brain to bypass spinal cord, move paralyzed limbs

For the first time ever, a paralyzed man can move his fingers and hand with his own thoughts thanks to a new device. A 23-year-old quadriplegic is the first patient to use Neurobridge, an electronic neural bypass for spinal cord injuries that reconnects the brain directly to muscles, allowing voluntary and functional control of a paralyzed limb.



I spent a lot of time thinking up a description.
