- Nautilus is a very interesting magazine.
- Street photography in Tokyo is fun. Nighttime film photography in Tokyo is also fun because street lights give off a teal, Fujifilm-like colour. That’s kind of also why I’m excited about all these LED lights in Mississauga; it’ll make nighttime photography look more colour-balanced.
Growing up, I’ve never quite envied anyone.
In our early lives, we are only occasionally a part of life-altering choices, and many of those were oftentimes already decided on our behalf. The playing field was level. My world was small, and everything seemed fair.
We went to school, we had similar classes, and we all had the weekends off. We chose which subjects to enrol and decided which instrument to learn, but these were roughly equal choices and I was picking my favourite. Choices seemed superficial and inconsequential.
But then somewhat suddenly, I realized that the playing field was no longer level. In fact, it hadn’t ever been; I just couldn’t see far enough to see the curvature of the rolling hills. It was only recently that I saw how our small choices shaped our day-to-day routines, dictate the types of freedom we enjoy, and leave us with particular responsibilities to bear. I gradually realized that I wasn’t able to do whatever I wanted to do, unlike how I felt I could when my world was small.
Nowadays, I catch myself feeling envious of others. Envious of people that can start their days with a cup of tea while still in bed, or of people who are in close-distance relationships, or of people who get to work outside. People who are sad and thus are able to create beautiful art. People who are hungry and thus are able to appreciate food so much more than I appreciate my weekly Whopper Wednesday meal.
I’m envious of others, but I think that’s okay. I don’t wish I were someone else, or that I had something else. I merely wish that I could feel what others feel.
I have a choice now, in the present, of whether to have my future self will envy my past self more, or to have my present self envy my future self more.
The shape of the umbrella was also inspired by nature. “The power of solar energy inspired us to design this synthetic cloud,” Widdershoven says. The form is aerodynamic, so the umbrella won’t blow over in strong winds, and the fabric is waterproof, so it can last as long as possible.
Guys I want to introduce you to Dinosaur Comics. It is totally awesome because every single comic has the same art and it’s really just a daily blog post by a rambling nerd but OH MAN IT IS SO FUNNY and its topics are sometimes enlightening.
Today I discovered that Logic Pro X comes with pop music loops galore. Mixed them into a song.
I can’t write on Tumblr because it doesn’t save my posts as I go.
Lost a post that I was writing on the subway this morning.
