I wander a lot around the city. Mostly on breaks from the office to keep me from getting cubicalitus. Most of my photos are from downtown, but I float around the area alot.
All the photos here were taken with my iPhone’s Hipstamatic app or Instagram app. If you don’t know of this app, it’s a photo manipulator kind of thing. You can change the lenses, flashes, and film to alter the look of your iPhone photos and give them a fun, retro kind of feeling.
There is also reblogged stuff from other people and random thoughts from my boring office life.
I collect postcards from all over the world through an awesome site called www.postcrossing.com. It's free and amazing. I also love www.postsecret.com.
Ask me anything you like. Leave a comment. Say something crazy.

My mom has these hanging on the wall in her kitchen LOL. There is a tag on the back of one that says “Woolworth’s - 1.49/Pair”
My class put on Little Shop when I was in elementary school for the school play. I was Audrey II. I was awesome!
Posted Without Comment of the Day: Xi’an Up Close, an investigative program that airs in China, has become an international laughingstock after airing this report Saturday about a “mystery mushroom” that was discovered by villagers in a rural part of the city. (Subtitles are uploader’s translations.)
News channel Xi’an TV released this statement today:
An open letter to all netizens and viewers: Hi everyone, one of our news reports which aired last night has made everyone laugh. This incident has been widely followed, shared and commented on. As our reporter was still very young and unwise to the ways of the world, this report has brought great inconvenience to everyone. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for your criticism and correction. Please forgive our oversight!
(Not Safe For Work — mushroom is actually sex toy.)
WOAH! They honestly think this thing is real and has healing properties! The dude poking it was killing me tho LOL!
Edgar Allan Poe (right) appears in the oldest-known photograph taken inside an American museum, the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia, itself the oldest natural science museum in the Western Hemisphere.
It doesn’t look like Poe to me, but I guess I never met him so how would I know?
I am proud to be a former employee of the academy of natural sciences. My 3 years there was an incredible experience. Sadly, I did not get to me Edgar Allen Poe lol.
