 You know what? America is awesome. It's so full of hope, and small towns, and big cities, and real people, and delicious beverages, and hot guys. You just never know when opportunity is gonna strike--you gotta be ready for it!

I posted this a while ago on Twitter, but I thought I'd share it here too! A few months back, Striver's Row, a renowned spoken word/slam poetry group performed on campus. It was my first time experiencing it, and beforehand, I happened to be in a bad mood (you know, one of those times where you stomp around feeling depressed and like you have no friends), so I went alone, and man did fate push me into the right audience that night! Even though I was just one of hundreds of people in the audience, the feel of the words and the weaving of language pulsed through me like a huge emotional wave, bringing me up and pulling me down. At the end of the performances, it felt as if these pulses of feeling had massaged out all the knots of bad moods that had been plaguing me all day, and I left feeling relaxed and refreshed.

That may have just been true for me and my overanalyzing brain though... but regardless, the performances were undeniably gorgeous and dimensioned. They were like dioramas made of language! But enough of my wishy-washy descriptions! To give you a delectable taste, I present "Cab Rides and The Morning After" by Alysia Harris:

Marc Riboud

I recently Google image searched "China 1954" in order to get a better glimpse at what China was like the year that my mom was born (more on this later, hopefully!). Unfortunately, few results returned. Buuuut on the bright side, I was introduced to the fabulous work of French photographer Marc Riboud, who spent many years documenting China and Vietnam in the second half of the 20th century, among his many other projects. Check out some of my favorites below, and here's his site for more!
