benches outside the Centre for Contemporary Art. some of the phrases i didnt like at all, but some of them really moved me. i was shocked at the things they said once i started reading - i wasn't expecting so many things that resonated with me...usually things like this are so generic, stupid, and awful. just the usual bullshit we're all constantly spoonfed about life, death, love, and humanity. but these benches are actually cool. one of them officially became my favorite bench in the world, but im not telling which one.
