Planning Brandon and I’s 14 day backpacking trip, starting in Arizona and hopefully neighboring states (but if it doesn’t happen that’s okay). Tickets are also super cheap right now. It’s not that hard packing everything we need to live off of our hiking packs but I’ll need to start doing some vigorous exercising again if we’re doing this in May.
Just finished watching Orange is the new black. Crazy fucking show. The end of episode 13 made me cringe, the suspense is torturing me.
Best party ever. I slept one hour last night and stayed there till 10 this morning but it was worth it. I was surrounded by people I didn’t know but they were all seemingly beautiful souls, a commune of Burning Man/Firefly participants and alike. The large multi-level industrial space was full of transformed ceilings/walls, black lights, installations, art, digital visuals, and nonstop music. Let’s just say there was open bar (I got to try pure yellow absynthe for the first time), plenty of healthy finger food, plenty of dessert, and they even cooked us BREAKFAST (which included scrambled tofu/veggies, hummus, veggies, fruits, muffins, caramelized onions/garlic sautee, bacon, pancakes, and scrambled eggs) HOLY SHIT. I was in heaven. Lots of topless ladies, and free spirited dancing. Plenty of intellectuals/visual artists/musicians to converse with. Everyone was so kind and open that I no longer became shy and had a great time with strangers. I even watched Samsara on silent on a large screen display while sitting on a suspended couch (beams) with a live acoustic/djembe performance, while eating strawberry rhubarb walnut tarts. It was a gathering of kindred souls.
Not to mention, they had chocolate cake, and……kale chips. KALE CHIPS.
Proof that you can be a poor college student and still eat well on very little time if you know how to manage your $. I just wanted to share some of the meals I’ve eaten this past week made by myself or with my boyfriend. I’ve been slowly getting into a healthier diet (and by diet I mean permanently or at least trying to).
7 Grain and seed toasted bread w/mixed beets, dates, and cinnamon spread, garlic peppered egg, bulgar, and honey covered strawberries.
Butternut squash soup with sweet potato, carrots, celery, gorgonzola cheese, garam masala, garlic pepper, thyme, and other spices.
Simple breakfast: beets, cranberry balsamic, banana, avocado, dijou pear, gorgonzola cheese.
Pita bread, spiced chicken, garbanzo beans, avocado/greek yogurt spread, broccoli stalk, brussel sprouts, black beans, black olives, rice, and some good spices.
Vegetable sautee with pollock fillet covered in avocado sauce.
Fusilli with carrots, beets, white button mushrooms, red onion mixed with plain greek yogurt, fresh mint leaves, basil, pepper, turmeric, lots of grated cheddar, and garlic simmer sauce alongside maple syrup/black peppered brussel sprouts (oven baked, so crispy and so good!)
Muesli (I soaked steel cuts oats in almond milk overnight) with cinnamon, lavender buds, hemp powder, cacao/almond granola, and honey.
Ryuichi Sakamoto has saved my life. I have been listening to him for the past 3 days and can’t stop won’t stop.
I see dead people and a lot of white girls who only wear north face fleece, tan knee high boots, jeggings, that weird tote, and clothes with emblems on the left boob.
I thrifted some big ass high waisted leather harem pants. What am I doing with my life.
gape of tortured
rasp and graze of splintered
of planes clamors of
into the awful beauty
the young city
putting off dimension with a blush
the becoming garden of her agony
A layer of human skin made from stem cells by a 3d printer
Guys, this is SO MUCH HUGER than this image. They actually have systems under development that can print directly into a wound.
The bioprinter has a built-in laser scanner that scans the wound and determines its depth and area. The scan is converted into three-dimensional digital images that enable the device to calculate how many layers of skin cells need to be printed on the wound to restore it to its original configuration. The system has successfully printed skin patches 10 cm square on a pig
Ten years. that’s how long they reckon until this is commonplace. Ten years.
And that article is two and a half years old! Check out what they can do now:
They’ve grown a working human bladder and a small kidney, too, this s***’s game-changing
Guys pay attention this is IMMENSE
Enjoying solitude in my studio, it’s my favorite time of the day to paint. A setting sun creates the deepest shadows.
I wonder what life would be like if I was constantly full aware of absolutely everything. Sometimes the world just clarifies visually, emotionally, mentally, and physically (and I am speaking of a sober state). My entire being just feels electric and there is no action to pursue but to understand and let it happen.
