Hey sorry for being lame, but after a series of personal issues with my mother openly deciding she doesn’t want to be a mother anymore, I am in need of a place to live in the SF Bay Area. If you know anyone in the area who has something available please message me, if you have friends that live in the area please share this, and if we’re already friends on Facebook please like that status because it’ll show in more peoples feeds that way, with Facebook’s system of only showing posts that contain trending words or have a lot of likes/comments. Not asking for money or anything like that since I do have a steady part time job I just need a safe place to sleep.

Hyundai Card Travel Library - Wonderwall

This amazing library and cafe interior in South Korea is a celebration of fractured geometry and irregular forms. It has been designed to communicate the diversity of both the information it exhibits and the people who visit it; a point that is partially accentuated by the collection of chairs sourced from around the world that line the table in the cafe area… envisioned by its designers as the spot where people meet and cultures collide. The staircase that jaggedly winds its way up the centre of the space is fantastic too.
