So I went the National Aquarium in Baltimore. And I saw sharks.
Aforementioned shark. In my defense, it was a dark exhibit…
Did you know that cows kill ten times as many people as sharks do? It was written on the aquarium wall, so you know it’s not a lie. I love sharks with their rows of teeth and gill breathing. And then I saw these babies in the gift shop:
Love at first sight. They even have little felt teeth.
Obviously I bought them immediately. I was in the market for slippers anyway, since the floor of my house is a waking nightmare and the Destroyer of Bare Feet (I have stepped on glass before, and I still don’t know where it came from). But the best part is that now I can look like one of my favorite fashion icons:
So, I passed the MPRE. That means I’m ethical enough to practice law in all 50 states! That’s pretty cool. So I thought to myself, what is the best way to celebrate passing the MPRE? Putting all my study materials into a giant bonfire while dancing around it, laughing maniacally is probably a little too dark and a bit of a fire hazard in a residential building. So I did what any reasonable law student would do…I took my outline and made origami with it!
Heart. This one was easier than I thought it would be, actually. I once read on a beverage cap that hearts used to be a symbol for unisex toilets in Sweden. I don’t know how true that is…are beverages known for their veracity?
Pinwheel. This was literally the only straw I had in my apartment. …I really like Dunkin’ Donuts coffee.
I was drinking this excellent fruit tisane (with elderberries! …but seriously, what are elderberries? .….and why does your father smell of them?) and had placed my cup down on my desk. I looked over and noticed something beautiful…
The little glass bottles I put on my windowsill were reflecting into my tea. Who doesn’t want some rainbow in their drink?
I keep having these dreams that I’m living at the bottom of the sea.
Jellyfish drifting around above me….
It’s always so serene and quiet. Sometimes when I’m having a particularly stressful day, I wish that I owned a submarine and could just dive into the Mariana Trench to be alone with my thoughts and the creepy unknown marine life for a while.
Not really. I was studying really hard, and in my despair, I leaned back in my chair and looked at my ceiling upside down. I noticed how much it looks like a desert just stretching on for miles and imagined little camels walking upside down towards my ceiling lamp. And then I accidentally made this.
