Young Frankenstein is one of my favorite movies ever! Mel Brooks is a god.
"Some people don’t sleep at night - I am one of those people. These pictures were taken long after everyone had gone to bed - I would begin after midnight and go until 4 or 5 in the morning. I stopped at sunrise - like a vampire… I never really thought anyone would ever see these pictures, they went into shoeboxes, where they remained. I did everything - I was the stylist, the makeup artist, the furniture mover, the lighting director. It was my joy - I was the model…" Stevie Nicks

Tomorrow I will work 630am-7pm again… have, like three, celebratory drinks of a week over with at the hospital with Kathy. THEN: I go to another interview to see if it’d pay me more than the position I basically already accepted. I’d really rather work at a Behavioral Health Clinic than the Occupational Medicine Clinic but, there’s a budget to make. :( I wish you could just get paid for waking up and trying to do something, anything.
EITHER WAY: YESSSS GOD DAMNIT, I AM DONE WITH THE HOSPITAL. Nothing broke my heart and pissed me off more than the way some people treat people (or me). This past year taught me a lot about… myself
photos by paul nicklen for national geogrphic, who explains: "i have been traveling to northern baffin island for more than twelve years to try and get one underwater picture of a male narwhal. narwhals are very shy. they have a sensitive nature and excellent echolocation. you can see hundreds passing by the ice edge, but when you slip into the water, you may never see one.
"late one afternoon, i had been in the -1.7°C water for a couple of hours, and i was freezing so badly that my legs and arms were cramping up. i couldn’t feel my lips around my snorkel, so i just stared into the black 2,000-foot abyss trying not to think about how cold i was.
"then, out of the corner of my eye, i noticed something bright traveling through the murky water. i turned my head, and there they were: several male narwhals, swimming in beautiful formation. i put my frozen finger on the shutter and, as i was about to take the picture, the narwhal closest to me let out a stream of bubbles. i snapped the picture in what was the most incredible moment of the assignment."
I have heart eyes for this beauty of an apartment.
Oh my god
