Instead of enjoying the sun at the park with my friends today, I spent the first day of my two-week spring break speaking with a group of heroin addicts in preparation for a photojournalism essay I will be creating this week. After wandering around lost for a while, I asked some passersby if they knew [...]

Today is this lovely Dutch girl’s birthday. Tillyke, Anne!

So Jas made a salad, I made a minestrone, Rob and Katie (United States) brought varying forms of [...]
Excuse today’s double-posting, but since it’s my friend Trey’s (United States) birthday today, and in lieu of an actual gift (my house will soon be invaded by a mob of beerthirsty DMJX journo-beasts and consequently I’m short on time), I figured I’d do a quick shout-out. This, I believe, is a pretty accurate depiction of [...]
