It’s funny now that I think about it. It was working in fashion that started the process of destroying my ego: when you realize that every person is a consumer of goods, that behind critiques and intellectual stances is a person whose purchasing patterns and personal aesthetic is a known and exploitable commodity that can be predicted with algorithmic near-certainty, your delusions of individuality tend to be shattered at that point.

98 year old dobri dobrev, a man who lost his hearing in the second world war, walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes and leather shoes to the city of sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.
though a well known fixture around several of the city’s churches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying bulgarian monasteries and churches and the utility bills of orphanages, living instead off his monthly state pension of 80 euros.
This guy is so… awesome. Amazing. Inspiring.
OK crying. restored faith in humanity…

“I’m a naturalized Italian, but I’m from Ghana. I was abandoned by my parents and adopted by two angels. I suffer with racism everyday. I’m the first black to wear the jersey of Italy. I’m not angry, but my life experiences make me act differently from other people. Then, try to learn more before you criticize me.” - Mario Balotelli
