There are few people in my life who have been so understanding, patient and respectful of my mental illness as my thesis advisor. In three years she has, at least three times, seen me fall into completely paralyzing depressions that take me out of life for weeks at a time. Each time I have been ready to get back to work, though, she has been there ready to work with me without a hint of anger, annoyance or judgment. She is not interested in excuses or explanations beyond “I’ve been sick,” and that is enough. She cares about good work, and she does not mind waiting for it. I am so fortunate to be able to work with this brilliant and endlessly patient scholar and educator.

today I felt like trying to make a low poly mini terrarium model, so I did! I have a game about terrariums I’d like to make eventually in this sort of style, need to get better at it first tho
Waaaah, this is great! Pixel art has seen such a huge revival in the last few years that it’s probably about time we graduate from NES/SNES to N64-era designs. Now if only I could make this low-poly terrarium physical. Someone loan me a 3D printer. —MN
Let’s play a game.

Today in Mussar, the elderly man kept bringing up Hitler as a reason why he thinks we can’t honor every human being. I, playing Devil’s Advocate, brought up the other side — that of course what he did was a terrible terrible thing and I don’t condone his actions whatsoever, but he could have being doing what he thought was right and/or what was best for Germany after their humiliation from WWI. If looks could kill, I’m dead.
Not without reason.
a pop-up cat cafe is coming to the bowery on the 24th, running through the 27th. is this the moment at which NY reverses its backwards slide into irrelevance, and marches forth proudly into the 21st century? is this a harbinger of cat cafes to come?
