It doesn’t make sense to call ourselves ugly, because we don’t really see ourselves. We don’t watch ourselves sleeping in bed, curled up and silent with chests rising and falling with our own rhythm. We don’t see ourselves reading a book, eyes fluttering and glowing. You don’t see yourself looking at someone with love and care inside your heart. There’s no mirror in your way when you’re laughing and smiling and happiness is leaking out of you. You would know exactly how bright and beautiful you are if you saw yourself in the moments where you are truly yourself.

I’m always on the search for new music to add to my collection. From hip-hop to thrash, I love it all! My taste in music is as diverse as my taste in food. The other day I came across one of my new favorite bands - White Lung, and haven’t stopped listening since. It’s an aggressive mix of punk and garage, with cute female vocals to match. Ahh…My favorite. This is the sort of music that puts you in a good mood in the morning. What do you think? -brittany
c’est la vie!
Candy Chang - I Wish This Was (2010)
“I Wish This Was was inspired by vacant storefronts. There are many where Candy lives in New Orleans. There are also many people who need and want things. Who knows a place better than the people who live and work there? We know what businesses and services we need, and we know what would make our neighborhoods more ours. What if we could easily voice what we want, where we want it?
As an experiment, Candy created fill-in-the-blank stickers that say ‘I wish this was ____.’ She placed boxes of free stickers in businesses around the city and posted grids of blank stickers and a permanent marker on vacant storefronts, so anyone walking by could fill one out. Responses ranged from the functional to the poetic, reflecting the hopes, dreams, and colorful imaginations of different neighborhoods.”
