after an apparent attack by a fox, a street cat named bob was found injured and curled up in the hallway outside of a support housing flat in tottenham were james bowen, a recovering heroin addict and homeless busker, was staying. james took the cat in, got him to the rspca, and nursed him back to health using what little drug money he had for antibiotics.

but in the process, bob helped to nurse james back to health as well, giving him a reason to get up in the morning and get clean. since his recovery, bob has refused to leave james side, following him everywhere for the last six years.

thanks to a literary agent who passed him on the streets, james has since written an international bestselling book about his hardships and friendship with bob. “we’re two injured souls looking for someone we can trust,” james says. done in collaboration with the writer garry jenkins from an islington café, the book also attempts to dispel some of the social stigma that goes with homelessness.

"The Untold Renaissance": Ikire Jones Spring/Summer 2014 Lookbook.

It’s all dapper hommes, suave strides and bold prints and patterns in Nigerian designer Wale Oyejide’s Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook for his brand Ikire Jones.

“This collection pays homage to 18th century textiles and tapestries while exploring the absence of persons of color in Medieval and Renaissance-era European art.  Borrowing from the sampling method employed in hip hop culture, each reinvented piece tells an original narrative from the perspective of Africans who have been placed in an alien context.  Through this reverse lens to the past, the present circumstances of individuals who feel displaced and alienated may also be considered.”

I watched this interview (I’ve watched every breakfast club interview to date) and this is so profound and so true ^.^

the amount of times i’ve reconnected with old dorm mates (from first year) and they’ve lead with “I have a boyfriend now…”

y’all, I couldn’t make this up. I’m happy for them…I just forgot this was a thing at wellesley college 

and they make a point to say

"he’s from harvard"

"he’s from trinity"

"he works for the government"

Internship + job stuffs

I am listening to a graduating senior who said something super dope and true about getting a dream internship or job: “a lot of wellesley students put on this facade of perfection, when in reality it takes applying to tons and tons of internships and reaching out to people/networking. I’ve applied to hundreds of internships and jobs and most I’ve gotten rejected from. See what’s out there. Get a sense of what is right for you. Make a really good, clear case for why you’re perfect. Diversify your interests. By your senior year and you’re applying to jobs, be more targeted and specific now that you know what kind of experience you want to have and what places you want to work.”

On rejection: “it could be that you’re the right fit. It could also be that you didn’t make the case. Make the case incredibly clear.”
