    365/365: The End.

    In all of my wildest dreams, thoughts, and ideas, never could I have imagined that I would be typing these words.

    Three hundred and sixty five days ago, as I positioned my tripod and camera on day 1, climbed to the top of this same hill and jumped, never could I have expected the places it would take me, or how it would change me.

    There was something healing about escaping to the woods every day after school. To immerse yourself in a story and take on a new character – it suddenly relieved the stress of the day. To be completely truthful, most of the time this project added stress instead of taking it away. I can’t count the nights I spent hours upon hours behind my camera, swiftly snapping away at the day’s photo, pushing off all other responsibilities in order to upload by midnight. But now that it’s all over, I’m genuinely happy of the effort I put forth to make each picture somehow better than the last, and I’m proud of every one of them, even the ones that made me cringe as I posted them. I can look back on any of these photos and immediately be transported into the emotions of the day; how I was feeling, what had happened, where I was, who I was with. And collectively, when viewed like flipbook, I can watch myself grow up. 

    So this photo is a goodbye to the kid in the red cape and crown. It’s the end of a divide of sorts – how part of me wants to grow up but part of me wants to stay so little. An ode to moving on, to growing old, to bigger and better things, but never taking off the paper crown you made when you were five years old.

    Thanks are due to so many people. To friends and family, for always providing an overflowing amount of love and support. To any and all of my models whom I consistently put through the worst of conditions. To every one of you who have kept up with and supported me throughout this project – you’re the reason I pushed myself to try and put out the best photo I could create every single day. And of course to my mom and dad for always lending a hand in a shoot, giving up an afternoon to help me cover a room in tin foil, dealing with my whining and grumpiness when a photo didn’t turn out, and providing endless assistance and encouragement this past year.

    I can’t believe I’m done. This has been the craziest year of my life, but my favorite at that. To have something to look back on and remember all the times I had and things I did is something that makes the whole thing worth it. With the end of one year comes the start of the next, and I’m so excited for what’s to come. But for now, I’m going to take a break, catch up on sleep, and not give a single thought to what I’m doing tomorrow.

    The end.

    Thanks for all the awesome photos! I’ve really enjoyed seeing all your creative work. :)

    50% of my jokes are self deprecating and 50% are self congratulatory like i’ll say “wow its hot in here…. just like me” and 5 seconds later point at a trash can and say “me”

    Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F

    I never understood why it’s an F if he gets more than half out of 100? Unless it’s more than 100. If you get more than half the answers right how is it an F?

    You must not be from America. Here, grading is fucked up.

    Average American Grading Scale:
    A+- 97-100
    A - 94-96
    A- - 90-93
    B- 80-89
    C- 70-79
    D- 60-69
    F- 59 and under

    And in some places in America it goes by a 7 point scale, so it’d be
    A - 100-93
    B - 92-85
    C - 84-78
    D - 77-70
    F - 69 and below

    Now you understand why American kid’s feel like there’s no point to school. If you have a 100 question text, and get 79 of them correct, that’s a C. That mean’s your Average Intelligence on this particular subject. And it get’s even worse when you have only like… a 10 question quiz. If you get two wrong? that’s a B. 80 fucking %. Now tell me again why American school’s are easier? 

    No wait but whats the grading system in other countries?

    UK Grading Scale

    100-70: A

    69-60: B

    59-50: C

    49-40: D

    Below 40: F

    next time you try to tell americans that we’re stupid

    i’m gonna remind you

    that our “average” is your “A”

    Yep I was shocked when I heard this in a different post but a Google search pulls up a ton of sites backing this up.
    Shit son I woulda passed College Algebra with an A in the UK. And I spent the end of the semester in perpetual fear that I would fail and have to retake the class.

    And basically as an American you’re expected to get 80 or higher. Technically 70s are considered ‘average’ but there is such a level of pressure to get a B or higher, that Cs have become equal to Ds. Basically anything under 60 you might as well gotten a 0, and anything between 60-80 is considered practically failing. So basically schools have to be designed to make sure majority of students are getting 80s or higher on specific topics, which means you’re spending all your time going over a few choice facts a billion times and there is very little room to teach anything else. Which explains why American schools are of such low quality. The insane demand on the students ends up wrecking their education. Not only do you not have time to teach them anything, but they end up hating learning. Even outside of school your life is dedicated to memorizing these few dumb facts because your homework ends up taking hours of your time. A teacher from one subject says they expect you to spend 2 hours every night on their homework. And if you’re studying 5 subjects and they all demand that 2 hours? Good fucking luck, because if you don’t have straight all 80s or higher you’re not getting into a good college and college degrees have somehow become the minimum requirement for getting jobs.

    I spent most of my junior year of high school in a state of constant panic that I was going to get a C in Honors Physics much less fail the class. If I got a C on my report card, I was grounded until the next one. I lost count of the times I’d wake up at five in the morning to take the early bus to go in for zero hour before school actually started for the day

    File this under the exact reason so many Americans detest going to school.

    Sorry for the language but yeah this is basically me rn with math

    Theater Series | Hiroshi Sugimoto | Socks Studio

    Starting in the late 1970s, Hiroshi Sugimoto took pictures of cinemas interiors and drive-ins with the aim of encapsulate the whole lenght of a movie in a single shot. He left the camera shutters open throughout the running of a movie and the glowing screen of the cinemas was left as a trace on each take. A somehow uncanny light resonates in the dark cinema halls. At a further glance, this central light ethereally underlines the rich architectural details of the theater interiors. You might want to confront Sugimoto’s work with Michael Wesely’s, a photographer that uses to take photographs featuringi  3 years long exposures: read “The passing of time“, (on Socks).
