20. SoCal. Lesbian.
This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!
Seeking Inspiration Midair with @manonwethly
For Dutch designer Manon Wethlij (@manonwethly), the contents of her arresting #flyingstuff photos are less important than the conversations they provoke. “People are free to see or feel whatever they want in the shapes,” Manon says. “I love that they make people talk to me and ask questions.”
“I studied architecture for two years, then graphic design, but the thing that has always made me happy is photography.” When she found Instagram, Manon says, “it was exactly what I needed to keep my photography enthusiasm alive. I was taking lots of photos every day and just storing them in my computer for no one to see.”
These days, it’s the response to her photos on Instagram that keeps Manon evolving creatively. “Everybody’s enthusiasm encourages me to try new things,” she explains, “It’s sort of addictive.”

So then a new video. I’ll start by saying that posting this video is probably the hardest decision i’ve ever made in terms of sharing content publicly. Parts of my life are very public whilst others remain private. My relationship with Ella lives in the private part of my life and has done for a little over two years now. Last christmas Ella went away travelling. She had planned to go for six months. This would be the longest we’ve ever been apart. 3 months in and on the run up to Ella’s birthday we were struggling. Copious amounts of Skype calls, texts and handwritten letters later we were finding the distance hard. During a Skype call Ella jokily challenged me to travel out to Australia and see her. I had a little money saved and some spare time so I decided to do it and arrive in time for her birthday. I filmed my journey as a way of showing her the process and sharing the story with friends and family. I had absolutely no intention of sharing it publicly. My fear of sharing experiences like this is that it would in some way commercialise our relationship. The emotions and actions in this film are deeply personal ones and I would hate to think that by capturing and sharing that it would somehow devalue those feelings. When I cut the film together I showed it to a few close friends and to my surprise more often then not it made them cry. I didn’t imagine it would have this impact however the filmmaker inside of me found it very satisfying. This video is and will remain very personal to me and for that reason it feels strange to share it with such a large amount of people. It took me six months to make the decision and i’m still not sure whether it was a good one or not… Importantly Ella feels very comfortable with it which was my main concern. Beyond that if other people watching the video feel a similar emotion to the one I felt whilst making it and to the one my friends felt whilst watching it then i’m a happy man.
I need someone like this.
