I like going on adventures and having nonfictional feelings about fictional characters.
-Shit you will See-
Assassin's Creed | Minecraft | Welcome to Night Vale | LOTR | Sherlock | Rooster Teeth | Male on Male | Travelling | Art History | Anthropology | Linguistics
My blog is NSFW and I'm generally too lazy to tag stuff.
Askbox is OPEN.
It was really hard to choose just one but I think some of my favorite souvenirs are the sugar skulls I picked up on two seperate trips to Mexico. The black one is from Mazatlan and the smaller one is from Puerto Vallarta. I really miss the beautiful beaches and the people- i don’t care what the media tries to project, Mexicans are so kind and welcoming. Also, in the back you can see two of my lotteria cards, some fossils from Katchner Caverns in Tucson, and a used prayer candle from the San Xavier mission, also just outside of Tucson.
But I also love the small collection of ema plaques I brought back from Japan? The sleeping cat is supposed to ward off evil spirits. If I remember correctly, the temples were Kinkakuji (Kyoto), Zenzoji (Tokyo), and Toshogu (Nikko) shrines (from top to bottom).
Okay, and finally my dusty glass mushrooms and weird clay quails. These came from my Grandma’s house when it was sold a few years ago. She and her husband literally built the house from the ground up sometime in the 40s so everything was a little crooked or creaky or off center but I loved spending time in that house. Grandma wound up with a lot of antiques and curios and she passed some of my favorites to me to save them from a dealer. (Desperate times called for a house-wide purge).
You would think that teenagers would be the rudest customers when really it’s mostly old, middle-aged people.
The elderly are either adorable or the wrinkly reincarnation of Satan there is no in between
