Michigan native prone to wander
Enjoys birds, insects, and compassionate people

See ya l8r

Hey guys! I’m officially at grad school and will be cutting back my social media time substantially to make room for other things. Thanks for keeping me entertained through my year of unemployment! Ya’ll are great.

I’ll still use Facebook and Flickr if you wanna be internet pals that way. Otherwise, have fun in life and stuff. I’ll maybe be back some day. 

"So many people glorify and romanticize “busy”. I do not. I value purpose. I believe in resting in reason and moving in passion. If you’re always busy/moving, you will miss important details. I like the mountain. Still, but when it moves, lands shift and earth quakes."

"As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives."

—Henry David Thoreau (via fuckyeahthoreau)

"A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely."

—Roald Dahl (via purplebuddhaproject)

I was a little slow getting around to it, but wildterrain tagged me to post six selfies! I had a hard time choosing, so to narrow my options I only used ones that I took in 2014 (which is more than halfway over now, whoa).

This exercise made me realize that I’ve taken a lot of selfies with insects, which is kinda fun so I’ll probably do a photo set of that some other day. 

Y’all should post some selfies, too! Pretend I tagged you.

"It is not that we love to be alone, but that we love to soar, and when we do soar, the company grows thinner and thinner until there is none at all… We are not the less to aim at the summits though the multitude does not ascend them."

—Henry David Thoreau
