Qiu Minye has found a new way of recording time by removing the identity of an image and creating the exquisite shape, life and texture. The object is floating lightly in a soft space like a song. It equals to the existence itself, which makes us sigh for the nature and thus feel the gratitude to the artist for giving us the opportunity to experience the nature.

I’ve learned that once you hit that god awful post-student life real adulthood thing, the best way of getting by is by giving yourself little *rewards* to look forward to. If you’re like me and constantly get down about having to work instead of “being out there” and enjoying the world, this is a pretty decent coping strategy.
My nearest target is:
- Romantic Bruges getaway this weekend.
- Then Manchester for 5 days in the end of November.
- Followed by 4 days of Christmas in Berlin.
- New Year one year anniversary celebrations with the boy.
- Athens in March/early April.
- Then hopefully Paris for my birthday in mid April.
Until end of April when my current work contract ends, I want to have completed a TEFL course and found a teaching job anywhere and everywhere, but Germany or France would be a super sweet starting point. I think this will be an excellent way to be guaranteed a wage but still get to get this whole “I NEED TO TRAVEL EVERYWHERE” bug out of my system. Teach a few months here, teach a few months there. Turkey, Spain, Thailand, Ecuador. Who knows. Experience the world. When I get bored of that, I can always come home and teach here (wherever home will be at that point: the UK or Brussels). My job prospects with a TEFL certification are still way better than for what I actually studied which is kind of sad but whatever.
The thing is: I’m not naive, I know plans always end up changing. The things we want change. Maybe only half of this will actually end up happening. Maybe none of it will. But for now having these things to look forward to is extremely comforting. I’m a “plans girl”, I need things to aim for. I need direction. I hate this aimlessness in my life. This helps. This makes me feel actually excited about my future. This gives me a sense of ambition back. And that can only be a good thing.
Two MSU basketball players raped a woman in the dorms then one admitted to it. Their only consequence was that they had to move out of the dorms. This picture is of me and one other woman holding up this banner during Midnight Madness. Two other brave souls had a banner on the other side for a while before some jerk started playing tug or war with them over it. This was taken before we got booed at by 10,000 people and police escorted from the stadium.
How screwed up are people to boo at this?
Let’s keep reposting this. Rapists should be charged.
how is sport more important than the lives of women?
like honestly baffling

The people in this photo are SOME OF YA’LLS GRANDPARENTS. Not your great great great great grandparents. Your GRANDPARENTS. Your dad’s dad.
these could easily be parents as well.
this is 15 minutes away from where i live
"Avoiding people. I avoid people that I actually like. I suppose that’s a phobia, but it’s also a habit."
this scene really got me. I think it’s a perfect example of people’s views on abortions.
For 75 years 1000+ children have been sent into the arena to fight for survival for the enjoyment of the richest people. Then along with that there are a million+ children across the other districts living in abstract poverty. All of them too, fighting for survival. The chance for them to move up in the world is virtually impossible because they don’t have the tools to do so and the people above them have kept them down as much as possible.
However the idea that a foetus, a blob of cells, is at risk and suddenly they stand up and protest.
Too much value is placed on the unborn, and not enough on those already alive.
