a room less ordinary



Man I wish my school had a place like this, somewhere to hide away and stare at animal bones and bugs. I just know the air in there would be cool and rich with just the right combination of things living and dead...methinks a vist to the Natural history Museum may be long overdue.

Oh and while you're at it, check out this sweet video of the house that Effie and Alice share in Massachusetts. Needless to say I am quite jealous!

I love love love this! I wish I could make my office room into this place.

I've been meaning to get up to the Natural History Museum since I haven't been since the science class I took in college. Seems like a nice soothing place to be...and air conditioned as opposed to my top floor boiling apartment!

Thats my school!
If your ever in providence, come check it out! It's open to the public I believe, they'll let you in anyway if its not.
Its wonderful, more like a library than a museum, no exhibitions, just everything at your finger tips.
(PS: most of the human skeletons aren't real, we only pose and get dirty the synthetic ones, but they do all have names <3)

elaina: Oooh I hope I can do that some day! It's so cool that they encourage people to actually touch and explore the things. I wanna hold that lobster claw.

sarah: I've been to Paxton's Gate a couple times and I loved it! Man, a trip back to the Bay Area for me is soooo overdue...

Charlotte: Thank you!

I got to visit this creature library when I was looking at RISD to go to school. The beetle collection is UNSANE. Makes me regret not going there but oh well.
