You are beautiful!

What’s new in the world of Jen? Well, this past week has felt like one giant hangover-induced haze, so I thought this colourphilic photo set might best illustrate my happiness and consequent intoxication. No, Denmark hasn’t (yet) turned me into an alcoholic—let me explain. Last Wednesday I got my acceptance letter for the international photojournalism [...]
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!
Today’s source of visual enlightenment and popcorn-eating prowess comes from my friend Rob (Canada [Montreal]). Lectures ended early and, to my thoroughly Canadian excitement, it hit 14 C here in Aarhus on the second day of March. 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.

I use the term “summit” [...]
At ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Aarhus’ art museum, there is a 360-degree rainbow panorama by Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson circling the building’s roof. We (Alison from Sydney, Simone from Toronto, Josefine from Denmark, Paw, Jasmine, and yours truly) thought it might be the best place to start our visit, so we went straight to the museum’s summit [...]
an assortment of honest first impressions, revelations, and sweeping generalizations (some vulgar, potentially offensive, and probably inaccurate)
Meet my fellow Canadian roommate Jasmine and her Danish friend Paw. Jasmine has already been here for a semester, so she’s well-versed in all things Aarhusian. Both of them have been incredibly nice and helpful with absolutely everything, and I imagine I’d have a much more difficult time adjusting to things if it weren’t for [...]
Welcome to the new and improved Pencilprism! This relaunch has been a long time in the making, and I must thank Olas Smith (logo) and especially Tom Ryaboi (migration, design, and all manner of technical hurdles) for their help in making my site what it is today. While there were inevitable sacrifices made in the [...]
