I am addicted to photography, and it is slowly becoming the window for how I see the world.

John Green: What To Do With Your Life (x)

17,000 notes? That’s insane.

(I just imagined a world in which tumblr reblogs could be exchanged for the weird circular baby cheese that Henry eats every day, and then I would have like a lifetime supply of that surprisingly expensive baby cheese. BUT NO.)

babybell. thats what you just described.

Ok but that was John Green

John Green doesn’t know the name of the cheese he buys

I just finished Paper Towns.

I want a road trip.

I want an adventure.

My life is filled with much of the sameness from when I was in school, with much of the routine feeling, but without the guarantees. I go to work most days, but I have no notion of when I will be hired. I don’t know when I will begin to receive a paycheck and can mark that my career has started. I have no idea what I will do if this doesn’t work.

I just want to shake things up a little bit.

I just want to have a good story.



The best super power ever has to be the power to refill things. Think about it, your glass is empty, refill it without getting up. Your bank account empty, power to refill it. Your bed is empty of a person of your preferred gender, refill it and have some fun.

At first I was all:

Well that’s the stupidest thing I ever heard.

But then I was all like:

As honey bee populations decline (from pesticide and fungicide use, parasites, and a mix of other factors), scientists like entomologist Claudio Gratton are exploring the exciting idea of pollinating our plants and crops in an “alternative” way: native bees.

“There’s a lot of other pollinators out there,” explains Gratton. The 500 or 600 wild bee species that live in Wisconsin are only a fraction of the 4,000 native to the United States. But because they tend to be solitary, aren’t easily managed, and don’t produce honey, they’ve mostly flown under the radar.

In this video from KQED’s QUEST, learn about these native bee populations and how we can support them by planting pollinator-friendly gardens and championing farms that pollinate with native bee habitats.

A solution to the honeybee problem I’ve never considered (and I’m willing to bet most of you haven’t considered either): What about all the other wild native bees and other insect pollinators?

There’s a lot of agriculture built around the good ol’ honeybee, and we should certainly work to save them. But even if it’s only as a backup plan, these other pollinators are worth studying. Glad someone’s out there doing so.

LOTR Illustrated Guitar by Vivian Xiao

Exquisitely detailed enough to be crafted in the forest realm of Lothlórien, this beauteous guitar was not forged by elf nor man, but by 16 year Vivian Xiao with sharpie markers! Depicting Nazgul, Minas Tirith, and even the all-seeing Eye of Sauron, this divinely-engraved instrument could surely inspire even more Led Zeppelin songs. Check put Vivian’s website for details on purchasing and commissions.

Food Typography

 made of pepper, curry, honey, biscuit, noodles, cheese, oregano or flour, these artworks are awesome. All have a special character or style. Let them entertain you to be creative with your surrounding. But don’t play with food, instead respect it!

She liked the word ineffable because it meant a feeling so big or vast that it could not be expressed in words.

And yet, because it could not be expressed in words, people had invented a word to express it, and that made Liesl feel hopeful, somehow.

For almost every day last month Malaysian artist/architect Hong Yi (who often goes by the nickname Red) created a fun illustration made with common (and occasionally not so common) food. Her parameters were simple: the image had to be comprised entirely of food and the only backdrop could be a white plate. With that in mind Yi set out to create landscapes, animals, homages to pop culture, and even a multi-frame telling of the three little pigs. The project, which still appears to be ongoing, has been documented heavily around the web.”


Some more cute military lolita things that I’ve come across recently.

Did you know that in 2011 a bizarre underwater “icicle of death” was filmed by a BBC crew? They did it using timelapse cameras, under the ice at Little Razorback Island, near Antarctica’s Ross Archipelago.
The icy phenomenon, called a brinicle, is caused by cold, sinking brine, which is more dense than the rest of the sea water. When salt-rich water leaks out of sea ice, it sinks into the sea and can occasionally create an eerie finger of ice. Brinicles are found in both the Arctic and the Antarctic.
