Re: homes, houses, and abodes n plants

Started learning how to keep plants during quarantine. Started with tomatoes. Was a great way to stay occupied. There is something very rewarding with nourishing life, spiritual even. I felt like an overprotective parent worrying for my little babies when the winds were blowing hard. Nevermind the i...

Re: What are you reading today/book club

Recently finished Jonathan Haidt's The Righteous Mind which gives you great perspective of the morality of people you disagree with. Reading it makes it harder to fall into the trap of thinking there is one true way of looking at the world. Right now reading Antonio Damasio's Descartes' Error which ...

Re: homes, houses, and abodes n plants

Not a huge fan of SANAA in general but this space seems really amazing. EDIT: Excuse my laziness. SANAA is an architecture office. EDIT2: I think plants are like good music, you don't need an argument for them. It's just beautiful, it doesn't need any further rationalizations. https://i.pinimg.com/o...

Re: You Ain't Got No Yeezy In Your Threadlist?

I think he wants to break free of being identified within the group identity of being black. I think he is striving for being viewed as an individual first and then a black person, instead of vice versa. Not to play down what he said, but after saying that slavery is a choice he goes on to say 'we'r...

Re: What can you do in the centre of town except spend money

Visit churches/religious buildings. They are usually impressive spaces, and open most of the time. This is a full-on hobby for me at this point. Especially ones built after 1900.

Re: Feelings

I have lived by the principle of not dating classmates/colleagues for somthing like eleven years. In retrospect it seems stupid to hold something experienced as a 14 y/o as a principle for so long.

Re: embroidered with fl

I've started remaking an old sweater with some rose embroidery. It's gonna go all around the sweater like a collar. The red is insanely hard to photograph, but it looks closer to the top photo than the bottom one. http://i.imgur.com/Q40mrN9.jpg http://i.imgur.com/kA8StDM.jpg

Yeah I think I should've worded it more carefully. I guess it's really the edit part that I'm wondering about. Is it self-expression if you're not making the clothes yourself?
