Found myself in a candid conversation beside a man on a starched suit and another with pants and boots covered in paint, and nails buried in grease. Two different professions, but both driven by their passions. Keepin’ it diverse, yuppies.
I slurp my soup. it’s like a reflex that I tried but can’t undo. But being raised in an asian household and country, it’s only acceptable, right?
I, in my entire life, have not seen mountain ranges. I’ve seen A mountain before, hiked through hills and gorges, but not mountain ranges. this is a problem.
My friend asked me, “what are you obsessed about?” Highlighting the word obsessed to capture her obsession with Harry Potter. I tried to come up with a list: health care, women’s rights, Milwaukee, cities, riding and fixing my bike, traveling, good beer, small plates, yoga… but i really can’t label them as an “obsession”. it just sounds wrong. this year, i tried to let go of attachments, like the noble truths said, the root of suffering is attachment. i guess i’m well on my way to enlightenment.
i’m going camping this weekend. ooooh, i can already smell and hear the campfire.
aaand, i just picked up my graduation tickets. one more month, and i’m ready.
Such a romantic love story! Back in 2011, Serbian photographer Ana Kraš flew out to Los Angeles to take some photos of folk singer Devendra Banhart for a European magazine. Within five minutes of meeting each other, Devendra asked Ana to marry her, to which she said no (what?!). Still, though, Ana decided to stay in L.A. and the two have been together ever since.
