I always thought mallards were adorable. Everywhere you’d go in the spring and summer, you’d always see a little duck couple just hanging out being cute. Until I discovered how shitty male ducks are.

Broken heart, a cause of anorexia

The thousand-yard stare, a symptom of heartbreak

“Afghan Girl,” picture a survivor a Soviet bombing

Steve McCurry, photographer of “the most recognized photograph” in the history of National Geographic

The Daily Collegian, the Penn State newspaper McCurry contributed to

And now we’re back to Penn State and Mt. Nittany, etc. etc. Boy, it has just been such a productive day. And I haven’t even touched my work!
