I just learned how to spin dog fur.
This is what I’m getting out of my Oberlin education.
My bike basket is not a trash can.
This has been a public service announcement.
the great bear rainforest in british columbia is one of the largest coastal temperate rain forests in the world, with twenty five thousand square miles of mist shrouded fjords and densely forested islands that are home to black bears with white fur.
neither albino nor polar bear, these rare black bears (there are fewer than five hundred) are known as kermode bears, or what the gitga’at first nation call mooksgm’ol, the spirit bear — a word no first nations person spoke of to european fur traders lest they be discovered and hunted. to this day, it remains taboo to hunt a spirit bear, or to mention them to outsiders.
the white fur in these bears is triggered by a recessive mutation of the same gene associated with red hair and fair skin in humans. though it remains unclear as to how the trait arose (or disappeared), it is especially pronounced on certain islands, and is known to confer a day time fishing advantage over the black furred bears (consider the first photo).

HOW LONG TILL SPRING BREAK
I just did this move today with an acro instructor who is visiting this weekend and it was CRA!!! (AND THEN HE PRESSED ME WITH HIS ARMS)
I thought I was going to pee myself.
But I didn’t because I was squeezing every muscle in my body and not breathing.
