So my next interview for a possible official part time staff position is tmrw, and I’ve gotten another promotion in my current role. So if I get the one I’m interviewing for tomorrow, it’ll add up to about full time.
Holy cow. Also can I mention how awesome my interview outfit is? And how much I’ll be sweating in it between the heat and my sheer terror
every disaster movie ever
(people, particularly white people, who discuss “americanism” without acknowledging the term itself embodies the very concept they’re discussing)
I’ve been trying to rediscover rock/metal on my iPod, & realized how many songs I forgot i liked.
Yngwie Malmsteen’s “Seventh Sign” came up & further reminded me, but then my iPod went back to The xx.
Anyways can we have a moment to bask in this glorious heat before the thunderstorm starts? I’ve got a sleeveless shirt on & gel in my hair…I declare summer officially begun.
Can’t wait to go camping upstate this weekend, bc I’m (still) over the city. Going back to Philly again soon bc Giovanni’s room is closing mid-May, & I’m not just going bc they’re putting everything on sale (but that’s a bonus); this marks the end of a tradition for me, & I’m super bummed out. That’s where I got my trans flag…
It’s been a while since I’ve had a no-binder day but I’ve run out of shits to give, as I enjoy my ability to breathe normally & not look super weird pulling at it all day long.
I’ve been doing this for far too many years
This is my ruler and notepad tattoo. I believe that tattoos can be used for functionality as well as memory. I’m a designer, so I use the ruler for buttons, zippers, and trim widths. Usually the notepad has an address or to-do list on it. :)
You know what, this is actually fucking genius.
this is a tattoo that i would get
aigh so who tryin get these? hmu
So many feelings in just one day
65 degrees in NY…so excited
Meet the Mona Lisa of the Prado, the earliest known copy of Da Vinci’s best portrait. Similarity in the undersketch of the painting indicates that this was very likely painted concurrently with the original Mona Lisa, by a student of Da Vinci.
There is much controversy in the art world over the question of whether or not to clean the fragile Mona Lisa, but her sister has been restored and some fairly odd later alterations removed to show the original vibrant colors and lighting. Some details, such as the sheerness of her shawl and the pattern on the neckline of her dress, have become utterly obscured in the original, but in the restored copy they’re perfectly clear.
It blows my mind a little bit to look at these two sisters side-by-side and imagine how much vivid detail could be hiding in the Mona Lisa under 500 years of rotten varnish.
THE COPY HAS EYEBROWS
Your response to a beautiful piece of artwork done by Leonardo Da Vinci himself is “SHES GOT EYEBROWS”. Alright. All intelligent life has been lost.
Yo Snooty McSnotwhine, the Mona Lisa’s vanished eyebrows have been the subject of debate and analysis in the art expert community for hundreds of years, long before your parents squirted water at each other from across the clown car and then honked their bicycle horns to indicate they really wanted to make a smug, insufferable little clown baby together.
this continues to be the best reply to a criticizing comment on this site
