Norman Reedus Quotes [2/?]
Life is way too short. Go adopt a kitten or something.
"Our daughter was five months old when I got a scholarship to Johns Hopkins. My wife came with me to Baltimore so that our family could stay together. I will always be thankful for that sacrifice, because I know it was the toughest three years of her life. She didn’t speak a word of English. We lived in a tiny studio— so tiny that many times I did my studying in the bathroom. In Vietnam, she had a job where she was getting phone calls all day long. But in America, the phone never rang. She wasn’t allowed to work because of visa requirements. Vietnamese holidays were regular days in America, so I’d be in class during New Year and we could never be together. Sometimes when I’d come home from school during wintertime, she’d look at me with tears in her eyes and say: ‘Tuan, I want to go home.’ But she still stayed with me. When I finally got my degree, many of my friends asked if I’d look for a job in the US. But I wouldn’t do that to her. She had done enough for me. So I said: ‘We are going home immediately.’ And as soon as we got back to Vietnam, she was like a fish back in the pond."

"If you buy your girlfriend flowers, they will wilt. If you but your girlfriend a phone, it will break. Buy your girlfriend a wrench. Nothing will happen to a wrench."

Sometimes I feel like nothing is good enough for tumblr. Disney portrays a strong female character. It’s not good enough because she’s white. Google does something for Elimination of Violence Against Women day. It’s not good enough because it’s not smacked in your face. You have to cherish the little victories, folks. The cup isn’t always half empty.
A window in a dark room in the Waldo Hotel, once the crown jewel of Clarksburg, WV, and now just a derelict ruin. The red tone out the window is due to the fact that it looked out on another wing of the building.
When people say ‘This is my baby,’ they don’t always mean a baby. Sometimes they mean a dog.

Upcycled Chopsticks Canoe
Japanese artist Shuhei Ogawara, a retired city hall employee in the Fukushima Prefecture, has spent two years gluing 7382 used chopsticks into a 66 pound, 13’-4” canoe, and coated it with a polyester resin coat. Incredible work that needs a lot of patience!
