Where did you store your dignity? And does this mean you are getting an Apple watch?

There was ample room on the Databank for my dignity. Sometimes, after getting comments from the cool kids, I’d dial up my dignity on the Databank and remember who I was. 

My first watch was a Casio Databank. And I wore it all through high school. (This very model.)

You know what this summer was? This summer was ISIS, beheadings, missing airplanes, airplanes shot down, religious minorities being persecuted, black Americans being persecuted, militarized police, Iggy Azalea having the “song of the summer,” Robin Williams hanging himself, and finding out Hello Kitty isn’t even a fucking cat.

2014 was the summer of existentialism, and it’s the kind of summer and cultural climate during which we should all discuss the matter of dying sad, scared, confused, and alone more often.

I thought this was a joke. That is one of the least natural looking children I have ever seen. The obvious hand on chin pose, the Madame Tussaud’s skin, the obvious lipstick, the way her glass marble eyes are 10 times sharper than the rest of the image…
Hey, Photography Week, you’re the experts. But this amateur thinks natural photos of little girls should look like natural little girls. This is a beautiful picture, but in no way do I find it natural.

Ha. Most ironic cover line ever.

My Bout of Horrible Luck—and Incredible Postivity, by @mtat95

To see more from Michael’s visual journal of his life before and after recovery, follow @mtat95.

"My name is Michael Tatalovich (@mtat95). I am 18 years old from Las Vegas, Nevada. I lived a relatively regular life up until last year: I played volleyball, was in photo class and just generally liked being a teenager. Then last May, I was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare pediatric bone cancer.

A lot of the images I wanted to share were pretty shocking, and Instagram was a way to directly share these difficult moments with my friends and family. But my photography also shows that life has its hardships and triumphs, its love and its loss, and its pain and its joy. Keeping those things in perspective is what makes us all human.

I went through 11 weeks of chemotherapy last summer, and then had my left femur replaced with a titanium prosthetic. After surgery, I did another 22 weeks, finally finishing in March with an incredibly bright prognosis. Although my hair is growing back and my port-a-cath has been removed, I am still dealing with the consequences of my illness. I still use a cane to walk. I can no longer participate in volleyball. I still have to go in for check up scans, some of which come with high levels of radiation exposure. I will have to get the titanium replacement replaced once it wears down, about every 10 to 15 years.

My Instagram feed is a wonderful chronological archive of my high school life. I can very easily look back to exactly one year ago and see what I was going through. The road I have traveled has been long, daunting and painful. The road ahead comes with its own distinctive set of challenges. But more often than not, I choose to look back for a good, light-hearted laugh at what has changed.

Yes, I am gay. Yes, I am a cancer survivor. Yes, I like science. But I am none of those things individually. I am a human, hurdling through space and time at the same rate as all of the other beings on this planet are.”

It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.
It was a lesson in how a department sets the tone as it polices — either as an occupying force fighting an enemy, as was seen Wednesday night through a haze of tear gas, or as members of a community in crisis.
