Beautiful As The Sun Mix
I bought a loofah sponge today. Well, I didn't technically buy it. When I was purchasing my toiletries at the CVS, the girl behind the counter forgot to scan the sponge. My hypothesis is that she was either (A) fatigued from holding a job while in college, or (B) she was simply enamored by my presence. For the sake of my self esteem, I am going to side with the latter. It is human nature to be at least a little self involved. Besides, you are the center of your own universe whether you like it or not. I believe that everyone should own a loofah.
Lev took this picture of me today. For some reason I neglected to put on a tie today. That is so unlike me. Anyway, his camera is totally fantastic and I am probably going to buy a higher end model Kodak once I start working this summer.
Yesterday Lev called customer support to see if he could get his phone to receive pictures again. The operator took this picture of his desk and sent it to Lev as a test run.
In one of my Comparative Literature classes I am reading a book on the Rwandan Genocide of 1994. It is nothing short of depressing. The following is an exert from the text about a woman who is trying to avoid being raped and killed.
"I'm too beautiful to survive. I'm as beautiful as the sun, and like the sun there's nowhere for me to hide. They won't believe their eyes when they see me peacefully walking down the street."
-Murambi: Book of Bones by Boubacar Boris Doip
Generation X had the mix tape.
Generation Y had the burned CD.
Generation Z has the playlist.
P.S - If anyone wants to make a 'Beautiful As The Sun' Mix, post it in the comment section. I would love to hear it.
