  4. Ahhhh I just sent an application to Duolingo for an internship, which is the first time I’ve ever applied to job outside of my school’s interview system. Like real life or something! Bracing myself for disappointment.

     
  5. I took a screen printing class last week and these are the results. Other than the black, I got to mix all the colours myself.

    I drew the two patterns on vellum with markers and ink when I got there, not putting much effort into making them easily repeatable. So you can see I messed up on the staggering on the large sheet of the green pattern and there’s a strong diagonal line where the pattern repeats.

    24-year-old photographer Asher Svidensky recently traveled to west Mongolia with the intention of documenting the lives of traditional Kazakh eagle hunters, people who tame eagles for the purpose of hunting smaller animals.

    With the traditions typically laying in the hands of the boys and the men, the biggest surprise throughout the journey was Svidensky’s discovery of a young eagle huntress, 13-year-old Ashol Pan, the daughter of an experienced eagle hunter. These stunning photographs symbolize the potential future of the eagle hunting tradition as it expands beyond a male-only practice.

  9. Anonymous said: it sounds like you have a missed connection.

    With the person I thought looked like a person I know? It was just me staring at them long enough to determine whether it was who I thought it was.

    You didn’t ask for one, but I’ll share a better missed connection story.

    Last fall, I went to a couple of Just For Laughs shows in Toronto. The night I went to see John Mulaney, I took a bus after work to the subway station where the platform was packed. There was a guy by himself wearing a plain white T and I thought to myself, eh, he’s pretty cute. Throughout the ride, we kept making eye contact, or at least I thought we did. We got off at the same stop. I wandered my way to ground level to catch another bus. When I got there, he was a few people ahead of me in line. My stop was at the end of the line and as more and more people got off the bus at each stop, I realized that there was a good chance we were going to the same show. A large group of us headed toward the theatre and he picked up his pace. From a distance, I saw him take what looked like a donut out of the front of his bag.

    Some time later, I left work to catch Aziz Ansari’s show. I took the bus with someone from work and told him this whole story about this guy and how I didn’t talk to him. We reached the same subway platform and there’s that guy again. If it weren’t for my coworker, I might’ve talked to him that time and asked if he was going to the same show. But I’m pretty sure we got off at different stops.
