A college-aged nerdfighter who loves writing, watching youtube and creating art. I enjoy the smell of books, beauty of nature and chatting about life (which almost always includes books, art, youtube, quotes and movies). I am a playful introvert who enjoys day dreaming as much as everyday conversation.
Welcome to my world!
Junior year: the year when you question everything about your career.
On struggling with being darker skinned black,
"… And my mother again would say to me, "You can’t eat beauty. It doesn’t feed you." And these words plagued and bothered me; I didn’t really understand them until finally I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume, it was something that I just had to be.
And what my mother meant when she said you can’t eat beauty, was that you can’t rely on how you look to sustain you. What is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and for those around you. That kind of beauty enflames the heart and enchants the soul.”

Cosmovitral: Mexico’s Amazing Stained Glass Botanical Garden
Stained glass is invariably associated with place of worship. Yet the lucky residents of the Mexican city of Toluca have a wonderful botanical garden replete with a host of incredibly stained glass windows. As well as being a superb display of plants and art together, it is a tour de force in what to do with a building once it outlives its original purpose.
No one ever said this couldn’t be a place of worship or contemplation. It’s gorgeous.
Wow! ::adds to bucket list::
