Abstract Not really sure what counts as abstract art, because I could never pay enough attention when it came to art history. It’s been a while since I’ve written here, and I’m really hoping to keep this blog going. Just came back from the Grand Canyon– I’ll be parsing through pictures for the next few…

too confident?

    Lofty I can’t seem to muster up the optimism from the last post since the election. Instead of words from me, I present the works that I would inevitably have referred to. When I finish my newspaper column on my post-election thoughts, I’ll make a new post for it or include it here. Also,…

life’s better in the front row

Waiting through 2 opening acts, standing in the exact same spot (I didn’t lift my feet so I could make sure I wasn’t pushed back), and abstaining from water for 4 hours to prevent bathroom breaks was well worth the performance Flume put on. I could feel each drop in my heart, and it was…

back to school!

I am busier than I ever could have imagined; it might just be senior year. College admissions has everyone in a frenzy, but I’m super pleased with all the classes I’m taking. Every course I have seems pertinent to what I’m interested in, from green taxes to a Jordanian-American upbringing. I joined cross country, though I…

It’s almost as if something’s come alive

The second season of Mr. Robot has lived up to all expectations, even surpassing them. I can’t remember some of the last season, but with twitter and IMDB, I’m catching up. The first episode of the season was filled with very ominous, just-perfectly vague quotes that could be the new tagline. Next episode comes out…

A Kingdom of BS

I just finished the first season of Mr. Robot, and I’m loving how it ended. In the last episode, Christian Slater’s character goes off on a rant about the “realness” of modern-day society, and he did it well. I found it refreshing for two reasons: he’s not complaining about the millennial generation, and he, himself,…

The Possibility of Pets

My aunt is on her way back to Canada, and on her way to the airport, she stopped by my house and handed me a mason jar of water. I didn’t think much of it, as my family often drinks from glass bottles to avoid the chemicals in plastic, but then I saw a burst…

Life’s a Fact

The fondness I have of Audrey Hepburn began innocently, from hearing of her greatness online and wanting to know why her name was so recognized. Even after looking her up, I had trouble distinguishing her with other greats from the time period, none of whom I’d been exposed to. After I realized that none of her…

New Year New What, exactly?

True to my typical nature, I’m waiting until the last minute to get this going. Why have I created this? I’m not sure, other to showcase and catalogue my love of all designs aesthetically pleasing. WordPress is much more organized than tumblr, I must say. It was difficult to make this, mainly because I was…
