SO OK TUMBLR YOU HAVE HELPED PEOPLE BEFORE I NEED THIS- AND MAYBE IT’S JUST BLIND OPTIMISM THAT HE’S ON HERE, BUT HERE GOES:

So last Sunday, precisely 4/19, I walked into a GameStop and was looking around. I proceeded to buy a Fennekin plush because that’s my baby. There was this guy who was working the cash register, and we were totally flirting. He pulled out the oldest pickup line in the book but it was adorable. “I haven’t seen you around here before,” yes. That one. We talked about tea and Teavana, and he drew a smiley face on my receipt and asked me to come back again. Eye contact was there. He was wearing a lanyard with a YGO pin and he loves Pokemon. 

IF YOU KNOW ANYONE BY THE NAME OF ALEX(IS) AT THE GAMESTOP IN THE CRYSTAL MALL IN WATERFORD, CT- LET ME KNOW. 

I want to go out with him and I was too chickenshit to give my number because I was in denial that someone was flirting with me.

18.36.54 in rural Connecticut - Studio Libeskind

Designed for a client that wanted a mixture of the avant-garde and the cozy, the house is clad in mirror-finish, bronzed stainless steel. The cladding was specified to accentuate luster and exaggerate the changes of light and season. The interior finishes, cabinetry, and built-in furniture are custom handcrafted from locally harvested oak planks. These elements, along with subtle elevation changes in the concrete floor distinguish the kitchen, living, dining, and sleeping areas without separating them. Circulation throughout the home is seamless and free-flowing, a theme which carries through in the nearly-nonexistent distinction between inside and outside.

Norwich State Hospital was abandoned in stages, like many institutions.  During this process, various buildings were used to warehouse different sorts of objects.  Stedman Hall - pictured - got the bulk of the chairs, housewares such as plates, and for whatever reason, displaced couch cushions such as those seen in the background, stacked up throughout the second floor, with no couch frames to be found.  Demolition is happening in stages too.  Pretty soon, Stedman Hall will be nothing more than another pile of rubble created at taxpayer expense.

Kobe is a tiny package of awesomeness!  He’s a five-year-old Miniature Pinscher/Chihuahua mix at DAWS: Danbury Animal Welfare Society in Connecticut.

He loves to run and play outside, especially when you give him time to stop and smell the roses.  He loves to sniff anything he can get his paws on!  He’s also very smart, and know how to sit for treats - but he may get a little impatient if those treats don’t appear ASAP!

He’s totally adorable and is longing for a home to call his own.  If you can open your heart to Kobe, email daws@daws.org or call 203-744-DAWS (3297)!

Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library

Gordon Bunshaft | Skidmore, Owings & Merrill | 1963

Yale University | New Haven | US

Bunshaft’s design of the Beinecke Library is a kind of a Russian nesting doll where the exterior architecture and spaces first establish a relationship between the building and the context, and then the interior architecture repeats the exterior condition in an abstracted way.

The Vermont marble panels set in the massive Vierendeel truss walls of the facades are a reference to the neo-classicist architecture of the campus. The translucent stone sheets protect the books from harmful direct sunlight while providing a subdued but spectacular lighting effect inside.

Kerstin - CT - 18 - Queer

Hey everybody, I’m Kerstin, a pretty normal, chill queer chick from New England. I love music, art, writing, animals, nerd stuff, nature, social justice, adventuring, food, science, boating, and sleeping. 

I’m super friendly and I’d probably love to talk to you.
