I'm an art history student based in the middle of the map. I write about myself most frequently.

A good poem is iridescent and incandescent, catching the light at unexpected angles and illuminating human universals—whose very existence is denied by today’s parochial theorists. Among those looming universals are time and mortality, to which we all are subject. Like philosophy, poetry is a contemplative form, but unlike philosophy, poetry subliminally manipulates the body and triggers its nerve impulses, the muscle tremors of sensation and speech.

We did it! We took a photo with a mattress! And not just any mattress, a symbolic mattress. One for Emma Sulkowicz and every other victim of sexual assault, especially those in college. May our solidarity effect a positive change among higher learning institutions and call attention to the major threat that men and women face everyday. ‪#‎whyineedfeminism

My pal took this photo!

PSA: Wear earplugs to concerts

Last week I had a dream in which I lost my hearing. I was photographing some landscape when a nearby explosion caused my hearing to go. I spent most of the dream communicating in ASL or scribbling on paper at an attempt to communicate with my friends. The dream was silent. When I woke up, my ears were ringing.
I’m sitting in bed with ringing ears from a Spoon* concert tonight. I’m wishing I wore earplugs. When I had my hearing tested last, I learned I am unable to hear a frequency in my right ear. When there is too much ambient noise (like at the restaurant on a busy night), I rely on my lip reading skills. Years of concerts without earplugs and headphones on with music turned all the way up is catching up with me.

*the opening band is what killed my hearing. They were awful. Spoon was fabulous as always. If I could afford to, I would follow them on every tour.

Finally done! One of my last projects for my senior portfolio, I drew the top female emcees (at least from late 90s - today) as tarot queens.

\o/

Hail to the Queens.  There are no lights by which we would rather See.

I would use these tarot cards gladly.
