A little Texas hospitality goes a long way, y’all.”

The best signs from last weekend’s immigration rally in Texas.

Proud to be Texan because of these people.

Die Frauenkirche in Dresden, Sachsen, Eastern Germany. Dresden is located in a valley on the River Elbe, near the Czech border. 

One of my personal favorite spots in Dresden. Awesome memories from last summer.

If Neverwhere was about the London underneath, [American Gods] would be about the America between, and on top of, and around. It’s an America with strange mythic depths.

It’s about the soul of America, really. What people brought to America, what found them when they came, and the things that lie sleeping beneath it all.

—   Neil Gaiman, in an early description of American Gods

Degree of homesickness for Rice at the moment: doing the online virtual tour of campus

Visited Peace Corps headquarters here in dc for drop in hours and got a free pin along with helpful advice! I can’t wait to apply next month and see where I could end up serving after graduation!
I really love this movie! Watching it in German war auch sehr sehr toll :)

Botanic Gardens in DC, a cool place to wander around and learn about rare plants for an afternoon.

It’s a Lumineers kind of Saturday evening.

Pine Canyon Waterless Fall: To be fair, sometimes there’s actually a waterfall in Pine Canyon, but that’s becoming a rarer sight because of the prolonged drought. But with or without water in the canyon, it’s still my favorite short hike in Big Bend. It’s neat to watch the vegetation change as you climb higher and higher, although your legs may beg to differ, especially when you hit the last quarter mile.

Texas nature, especially in Big Bend, is just glorious.
