Bangladeshi photographer Munem Wasif writes for LightBox about the intersection of Bengali culture and Islam in his home country.
"The artist is willing to sacrifice a naive realism in order to achieve realism of a deeper source, like a poet who, though less factual than a journalist in describing an event, may nevertheless reveal truths about it that find no place in the other’s literal grip."

Today was pretty spectacular.
Rudimental has the best music video’s ever! This one is great!

Hold your horses
Horses are big(!) with indie and folk rock bands (see: Mumf & Sons). Horses can symbolize spirituality, and also, more applicable here, freedom, because they used to prance around the plains. “Hold your horses” is a relatively common idiom meaning “slow down” — the party doesn’t start yet!"
Slow down, rushing doesn’t make things better. You may rush so hard that you forget to live or miss great opportunities.
Wait, be patient, be more careful.
“Hold your horses. We’re almost there.”
My inspiration for this post came from this song:
"Believe in your fucking self. Stay up all fucking night. Work outside your fucking habits. Know when to fucking speak up. Fucking collaborate Don’t fucking procrastinate. Get over your fucking self. Keep fucking learning. Form follows fucking function. A computer is a Lite-Brite for bad ideas. Find fucking inspiration everywhere. Fucking network. Educate your fucking client. Trust your fucking gut. Ask for fucking help. Make it fucking sustainable. Question fucking everything. Have a fucking concept. Learn to take some fucking criticism. Make me fucking care. Use fucking spell check. Do your fucking research. Sketch more fucking ideas. The problem contains the fucking solution. Think about all the fucking possibilities."

Two things I love about this:
1) It’s laid out, in black and white, clear as anything, simple and straight to the point, all you need to know to do well in your creative career (not just for designers).
2) I love the word ‘fuck’. A lot.(via danwrites)

Just live you’re dreams, no shit!
As of today, things are falling into place for me.
Everyday we are surrounded by noise, opinions and loose words. We often forget what is truly important. If you believe in your dreams, stop making excuses,
