Now Playing Tracks

My first Beavers game ended in a double overtime loss.. But I have to give my new friends and coworkers credit; 4 different people offered me a ticket to the game. And the seat I ended up in was ridiculously close to the field. And the band got creepily close to us. Good job, Corvallis - you just might win my heart.









The best post I have ever seen.

I think I just peed my pants out of happiness.

This is what pranks need to look like


Thats so nice to see the world actully be nice

Wait so did they bring this guy a tree AND presents AND a hot cup of coffee? Because if so (and even if I’m hallucinating the gifted coffee) I’m crying. You guys I’m crying.

I cried, too.

Holiday inspiration.

In Plain Sight: The Sorrow And Pain Of Global Girls

Today is the International Day of the Girl Child. It is a U.N. event with a grand name and a powerful mission. Girls around the world, especially in lower-income countries, often face terrible things, from genital mutilation to child marriage to kidnapping. We asked five photographers, who devote much or all of their time to documenting the lives of global girls, to share photos with special significance and talk about the images.

Top photo: Nine months pregnant, Niruta, who is 14, arrives at her wedding in Kagati Village, Kathmandu Valley, Nepal on Jan. 23, 2007. Niruta moved in with the family of her 17-year-old husband-to-be and became pregnant when they were engaged — considered acceptable in her society. (Courtesy of Stephanie Sinclair)

Bottom photos: Sheldean Human of Pretoria, South Africa, was 7 when she was murdered, then raped, by a stranger in 2007. Furrer photographed her schoolmates: “These two girls represent a situation of incredible pain and loss but they are just so dignified. It breaks my heart.” (Mariella Furrer)
