live fast die young sad girls do their best ok

HELLO INTERNET. My name is Katie (or "Kathryn" if you're my dad, or just some douche who thinks a full name equals feminine professionalism). I am a writer, poet, comedian, and god-shaped (ass)hole from Chicago. Clinically depressed and LOVING IT♥ ♥ ♥!!!! I like all the typical girly stuff including: scathing reality, emptiness, puppy baskets, kitten friends, film, activism, music, stuff, things, Patrick Stump to fill the gaping holes in my heart and make my ovaries glow like the stones in Temple of Doom, and baby egg rolls.

Since adolescence I have struggled to find the meaning in being alive and stake my claim on a purpose. After ten years and countless broken hearts it's clear that the funniest thing about my "purpose" is that I don't have one outside of creating drinking games to Nic Cage movies. This is the self-indulgent art created and/or reblogged to cope with that. It won't always be roses, but it will be OK to laugh. Please enjoy the fruits of my sadness and I hope you enjoy my blog! I have included my resume below this blurb. Please enjoy.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE / ACCOLADES: Book-It pizza party, Brownies patches, 6th grade Honor Roll, 7th grade Honor Roll, 8th grade Honor Roll, those soccer trophies that everybody got even if you sucked at soccer, two 3rd place equestrian ribbons, a couple vagina-pity speech medals, a TV won at my Jr. prom after party, Life (from my mom), and a green stripe in Taekwondo.

Surprisingly, perfectionists are often procrastinators, as they can tend to think “I don’t have the right skills or resources to do this perfectly now, so I won’t do it at all.”

this is an important thing to remember.

Lori Nix (USA) - The City

Lori Nix is a photographer and printer based in Brooklyn, NY who has been building dioramas and then photographing them since the early 1990s, and whose work has been widely collected and exhibited internationally. Nix considers herself a “faux landscape photographer,” and her work is influenced by extreme weather and disaster films. She works without digital manipulation, using miniatures and models to create surreal scenes and landscapes, building dioramas that range from 20 inches to six feet in diameter. They take several months to build, and two to three weeks to photograph, using a large format 8 × 10 film camera. Nix works with her partner Kathleen Gerber, a trained glass artist, at home in Brooklyn, NY, constructing most of the scenery by hand from scratch, using “foam and glue and paint and anything else handy.” After the final photograph is made, Nix harvests the diorama for pieces for future use and then destroys it. Nix and Gerber also design and fabricate sets for video. The series The City is a post-apocalyptic vision wherein Nix explores what it would be like to be one of the last remaining people living in a city, imagining indoor urban scenes. (src. Wikipedia)

Magic Carpets, Casablanca’s Sacre Coeur Church | Morocco (by Miguel Chevalier)

‘Magic Carpets 2014′ by French artist Miguel Chevalier is an interactive light display spread out across the floor of the former Sacré Coeur church in Casablanca, Morocco. Covering it with a huge layer of light, the work references the world of biology, microorganisms, and cellular automata – as cells have the ability to multiply in abundance, divide and merge at different paces. pieces come together, fall apart and transform in shape at rapid speeds. the displayed organic universe mingles with a digital construction of overlapping pixels.
