So… While I’ve been on that internship hunting grind, I’ve also been watching a lot of great old school movies to culture myself. :) So here’s some of my favorite movies from the past month and since I don’t know how to talk about movies, I’ll just include my favorite quote from each movie!
1. The Departed (2006) —- Crime / Drama
Cop undercover with the criminals, criminal undercover in the cops.
Colin Sullivan (Damon): Just fucking kill me.
Billy Costigan (DiCaprio): I am killing you.
2. The Breakfast Club (1985) —- Comedy
Five incredibly different kids have an 8-hour detention on Saturday together.
Allison Reynolds: You have problems.
Andrew Clark: Oh, I have problems?
Allison Reynolds: You do everything everyone tells you to do and that is a problem.
Andrew Clark: Okay, fine, but I didn’t dump my purse out on the couch and invite everyone into my problems.
3. Almost Famous (2000) —- Drama / Music
Kid follows his dream to be a rock writer and tours with his favorite band.
Russell Hammond: And you can tell Rolling Stone magazine that my last words were… I’m on drugs!
[crowd cheers wildly]
William Miller: Russell! I think we should work on those last words!
Russell Hammond: I got it, I got it. Last words - I dig music.
[a few claps]
Russell Hammond: …
Russell Hammond: I’m on drugs!
[crowd cheers wildly]
4. The Big Lebowski (1998) —- Comedy
A Lebowski gets mistaken as a millionaire and ends up working for him to get back his kidnapped trophy wife
The Dude: Also, my rug was stolen.
Younger Cop: The rug was in the car?
The Dude: No. It was here.
Younger Cop: [eager] Oh, separate incidents.
Maude Lebowski: [on answering machine] Jeffrey, this is Maude Lebowski. I need to see you. I’m the one who took your rug.
Younger Cop: Well. I guess we can close the file on that one.
5. American Beauty (1999) —- Drama
Probably the weirdest out of all the movies I watched. I don’t know how to describe it. It’s really intense and kind of sad but kind of funny but kind of depressing.
Janie: Sorry I’m late.
Carolyn: No, that’s quite all right, dear. Your father and I were just discussing his day at work. [to Lester] Why don’t you tell our daughter about it, honey?
Lester: Janie, today I quit my job.
Lester: And then I told my boss to go fuck himself, and then I blackmailed him for almost sixty thousand dollars. Pass the asparagus.
Amber Carrington - Skyfall
I am soooo obsessed with this girl… <3
She better win… I really think she could be the next pop diva, her voice is so gorgeous. She has the husk and soul of Adele and the range of power of Kelly Clarkson. *_____*

Our constantly connected world sometimes leaves us glued to various screens. As a sort of commentary, David Ryle’s landscapes shows us the big picture we could be missing while hovered over our cameras.

And then outside of this photographer, there’s another person who has an even bigger picture of what’s going on - and so and soforth.
And guess who has the biggest picture of all? :0
Senior Banquets, 2009 and 2013.
Fastest but greatest 4 years of my life.
Thank you God for Your good works over the past four years. You are undoubtedly good.
Feeling really really unstable! I know this photo is such a joke but I’m not improving much from this the entire week. (Photo taken at 8AM post-all nighter)
Keep me in your prayers!
Sometimes people ask me to put up some architecture stuff I do because I rarely ever do. Here’s a collection from the first legit portfolio I’ve done since entering Cornell.
1. Floating City Grid - Fall 2012, Venice, Italy
2. Seaside Plaza - Fall 2011, Hong Kong, China
3. H Creche - Spring 2011, Johannesburg, South Africa
Nujabes - Flowers
Let me introduce y’all to this chill jazz-hop melody for you to rock to while you indulge in your basest instinct to frolic in the flowers of Ithaca. Perfect soundtrack for a springtime soiree, for study breaks, for spring showers and the sweet, sweet scent of budding flowers.
Now groove with me.
Cardinal Francis George, Archbishop of Chicago (2010)
