I’m never sorry and I wish that sometimes I could be sorry but I’m just not. It’s not that I don’t take responsibility for myself, or own up to my mistakes, I’m just not sorry about it. I apologize because its expected of me and that’s the only way people can know that I take responsibility. But remorse? Almost never. I apologize but I can’t look the person in the eye, if I do then I mean it but most of the time I don’t. And I’m actually sorry about that.
Alvaro Sanchez-Montanes - Indoor Desert (2010)
“By the end of World War I, diamond mines in Kolmanskuppe, a site in the Namib Desert, ceased to be exploited. For over two decades it had been one of the wealthiest settlements in Southern Africa. During that time of splendour, German colonists who run the site had built their peculiar residences there evoking the architecture and décor of those in their homeland Bavaria. After it was closed down and its inhabitants left, Kolmanskuppe became a ghost town engulfed by desert sands. With his series Indoor Desert, Sanchez-Montanes enters these houses abandoned to the desert to unveil the serene enchantment that dwells in their chambers.”

this has got to be the best thing i have seen on tumblr so far, i love this way too much.
this girl in my gender studies class literally answers every question, every statement, EVERYTHING with some rant about something usually unrelated and often no one else really gets a chance to speak and it’s really annoying because she’s one of those people you can tell doesn’t spend much time in the real world and learned everything they know about life from the internet. anyway she constantly refers to men as “dudes,” as in i’ve never, or very rarely, heard her actually use the term “man” “boy” or “guy” and it’s in that condescending tone like, she’s not excitedly adding “dude!” to the end of a sentence. but women are women. men are dudes. because i guess they’re dumb? it just annoys me because if you expect to be taken seriously as a woman you have to also take men seriously and constantly referring to them as “dudes” (and i wish i could emulate her tone) shows you don’t take them seriously, in which case, start taking them seriously or get out of gender studies.
