television history

i’ve been trying to explain this sketch to people for years

there is literally no way to explain this sketch it’s just a thing you have to see and even then I’m not sure why it’s so funny

this is art

Now this version my friend made years ago finally makes sense to me. I did not get it AT ALL when he made it at the time. haha had to go the myspace archive to find it, that’s how long ago this is from. wow.

Chasing #realraysfordays with @maurensparrow

For more perfectly captured rays of light, follow @maurensparrow on Instagram and browse the #realraysfordays hashtag.

Little Rock Instagrammer Mauren Sparrow Kennedy (@maurensparrow) is the creative brain behind #realraysfordays. Though sunbeams are commonly enhanced in digital post-processing, Mauren spends her time both photographing and curating photographs that feature “the most beautiful, interesting, unique—and totally real—sunrays that Instagrammers could catch on their phones.” Looking at the ever-growing gallery, Mauren is excited by how the community has picked up #realraysfordays. To help create more light chasing images, she shares her top tips for capturing sunrays:

  1. Always be on the lookout. “The sun behind certain clouds or the way it can shine through the trees gives you completely natural, absolutely real rays that are incredible.”
  2. Be aware of your light source and the objects around it. “Shooting directly into the light with your light source slightly obscured by either a thing or person will give you some awesome sun glare.”
  3. Practice. “Once you figure out how to shoot the rays you like, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot! See what shot works best for showing off the awesome rays you’re trying to capture. Shoot from different angles and with different exposures to make sure you’re getting your rays in the best light possible (pun intended).”

I can’t believe I finished all of Gossip Girl. For years now (literally) I’ve been rewarding myself with only a couple episodes at a time and have now officially finished the entire series. It is seriously one of my all time favorite shows and while I feel like the last season was a little rushed, it was amazing and I will forever recommend this show as one of the greats. Great fashion, engaging drama, interesting characters, and plot twists with every scheme. You can’t hate this show. It’s too good. :P

Despite what you may believe, you can disappoint people and still be good enough. You can make mistakes and still be capable and talented. You can let people down and still be worthwhile and deserving of love. Everyone has disappointed someone they care about. Everyone messes up, lets people down, and makes mistakes. Not because we’re inadequate or fundamentally inept, but because we’re imperfect and fundamentally human. Expecting anything different is setting yourself up for failure.

It is pouring rain outside

Arizona has like 1 type of weather all year long (sunny) expect it’s random little monsoon/haboob (dust storm) season when it occasionally floods for like 15 minutes and it’s done, however, this year has been some of the craziest rain and flooding I’ve ever seen in my (going on) 5 years of living here. My living room even has leaks coming in from the downpour and my internet/cable is down. This is about as extreme as it gets here but it is pretty wild. There are currently like 6 inches of water in my backyard and a river in my neighborhood.

I love rain and rainy days and as they are a rarity around these parts there is nothing more I’d rather do right now than snuggle up in bed, take a nap and/or watch a movie. I’ve already been having a great day making a big breakfast-brunch thing with Alex and even playing in the rain a little bit! I want so badly to stay in my oversized t-shirt and boxers and lay around for the rest of the day but alas I have to go work at a (most likely dead) restaurant from 6 to probably 11:30. Hopefully the time doesn’t got by too slowly but I have a feeling we’ll be pretty slow tonight and I’ll just be sad I’m missing out on a great evening in my bed. Haha whatever.

Have a nice Saturday everyone! :)

Wow thanks for the long and detailed reply! It's hard planning trips when your friends are all planning too and the weekends you're all free dont always match up. I want to book Prague via bus2alps but I don't know how I feel doing a solo trip... Definitely doing Paris and Amsterdam so that's good that you liked them :)

haha no prob! I actually made youtube videos updating throughout my whole study abroad experience if you are curious about any specific places I went, I have specific videos devoted to all my side trip weekends and fall break and what not. As far as deciding whether or not to do a bus2alps trip solo I say absolutely go for it! there are so many other people going and it’s not hard to find a little group to tag along with for the weekend. (the best part about study abroad people is that they’re *almost* always friendly and interested in meeting new people! Just try to strike up a convo on the bus ride there or meet whoever else is in your hostel room when you get there. I went to Interlaken alone and was so nervous but by like day 1 I met several different groups that I became friends with and a trio of people I even ended up skiing/snowboarding with! It was a super fun weekend and totally not awkward so don’t let that hold you back. hope this helps, I’m more than happy to answer any other questions you come up with because I LOVE this stuff. haha
