“At some point, I just began folding the prints, folding way the sky, folding away the sides, until I basically had an image that looked like a supermarket bar code. I somehow had the feeling this was the right way of doing it, this was the gut decision.” -Michael Wolf

But I’ll be honest
Overexaggerated infomercial incompetance
In and of itself
May just be
my favorite invention ever
98 year old dobri dobrev, a man who lost his hearing in the second world war, walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes and leather shoes to the city of sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.
though a well known fixture around several of the city’s chruches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying bulgarian monasteries and churches and the utility bills of orphanages, living instead off his monthly state pension of 80 euros.
there’s still good in this world

Oh my gosh people, be nice to your waiter/waitress, it’s not their fault that your food is cold or if it’s under cooked. Be nice to the cashiers who are still training and can’t ring up your items as quickly as you want. If a stranger smiles and says hello to you, smile and say hello back! It’s just common courtesy, I don’t understand why people have to be so rude.
This really gets to me. I know someone who does this who my family goes out to dinner with a lot and it makes me feel awkward. She makes such a big fuss about getting the slightly wrong order.
I do have a problem with strangers smiling and saying hello, however…mostly because it doesn’t happen all that much here and I am either so taken aback I don’t know how to respond or I just don’t even realise they are speaking to me. Apparently when I went to the US, I gave a really dirty look to this American girl who complimented my outfit but in all honesty I was so surprised I was just like “UH THANKS” really bluntly.
Somebody please give the Ember Island Players an Oscar.
