I'm Devon, I'm 19. I was born into wanderlust. I'm crazy, I know. I run a cafe on campus, I've partnered with a domestic violence shelter, and I'm in a 1.5 year old relationship. You might wonder how all these commitments and my wanderlust fit together, and the fact of the matter is, I'm still trying to figure that part out.
Today I am practicing not setting myself on fire. Today I am the match. Tomorrow I might be the smoke.
I KNOW YOU’VE ALREADY BEEN THROUGH THIS PART OF LIFE
BUT SCHOOL HAS GOTTEN HARDER
AND TEACHERS ARE UNFAIR TO ME AND ASSIGN TOO MUCH
AND THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN I AM TIRED
I CANNOT DO WORK
I CANNOT SUCCEED ON A TEST
I CANNOT FUNCTION
a couple weeks ago, my friend told my english teacher that he fell asleep reading and couldn’t finish. my teacher told him to listen to music, walk around, do anything to stay awake. i looked at him like it was a joke, but he wasn’t joking. and that’s when i knew that not even the teachers know the school system’s fucked.
The phantasmagorical and surreal animal sculptures by Canadian artist Ellen Jewett. Between dream and nightmare, some strange creations born of a symbiosis between organic and mechanical elements, a meeting between fantasy, gothic and steampunk. Some very detailed sculptures in clay on a metal frame.
"I don’t want to write about climbing; I don’t want talk about it; I don’t want to photograph it; I don’t want to think about it; all I want to do is do it." — Chuck Pratt
I guess this could be a longer version of ‘Just Do It’ long before Nike came up with it. If you don’t know who Chuck Pratt is, check out the book Camp 4. But don’t read about climbing this weekend….just do it.
