and the road get tough

Solar System: Things to Know This Week

Get the latest on women making history at NASA, our Juno mission, the Curiosity rover and move!

1. Women at NASA Making History, Creating the Future

Throughout Women’s History Month, we’ve been presenting profiles of the women who are leading the way in deep space exploration.

+ Meet some of them

2. Juno and the Giant

Our Juno spacecraft made its fifth close flyby over giant Jupiter’s mysterious cloud tops.

+ See the latest from the King of Planets

3. When the Road Gets Rough, the Tough Keep Rolling

A routine check of the aluminum wheels on our Curiosity Mars rover has found two small breaks on the rover’s left middle wheel tread–the latest sign of wear and tear as the rover continues its journey, now approaching the 10-mile (16 kilometer) mark. But there’s no sign the robotic geologist won’t keep roving right through its ongoing mission.

4. What Do Mars and Dinosaurs Have in Common?

Our research reveals that volcanic activity at the giant Martian volcano Arsia Mons ceased about 50 million years ago, around the time of Earth’s Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction, when large numbers of plant and animal species (including dinosaurs) went extinct. However, there’s no reason to think the two events were more than a cosmic coincidence.

+ Learn how scientists pieced together the past

5. A Comet in Commotion

Images returned from the European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission indicate that during its most recent trip through the inner solar system, the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko was a very active place – full of growing fractures, collapsing cliffs and massive rolling boulders.

+ See the many faces of Comet #67P

6. Next Generation Space Robot is Ingenious, Versatile–and Cute

The next rovers to explore another planet might bring along a scout. The Pop-Up Flat Folding Explorer Robot (PUFFER) in development at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory was inspired by origami. Its lightweight design is capable of flattening itself, tucking in its wheels and crawling into places rovers can’t fit.


7. Shadowy Dawn

According to data from our Dawn mission to Ceres, shadowed craters on the dwarf planet may be linked to the history of how the small world has been tilted over time by the gravity of planets like Jupiter.

+ Find out how understanding “cycles of obliquity” might solve solar system mysteries

8. On Orbit and Online

We’re developing a  long-term technology demonstration project of what could become the high-speed internet of the sky. The Laser Communications Relay Demonstration (LCRD) will help engineers understand the best ways to operate laser communications systems, which could enable much higher data rates for connections between spacecraft and Earth, such as scientific data downlink and astronaut communications.

+ See how it will work

9. A Big Role for Small Sats in Deep Space Exploration

We selected 10 studies to develop mission concepts using CubeSats and other kinds of very small satellites to investigate Venus, Earth’s moon, asteroids, Mars and the outer planets. “These small but mighty satellites have the potential to enable transformational science,” said Jim Green, director of NASA’s Planetary Science Division.

10. Rings Around the Red Planet?

It’s possible that one of our closest neighbors had rings at one point – and may have them again someday. At least, that’s the theory put forth by NASA-funded scientists at Purdue University.

+ See more details about the once and future rings of Mars

“Sometimes love is not enough when the road gets tough… I don’t know why. Come and take a walk on the wild side, let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain… Choose your last words, this is the last time… Cause you and I… we were born to die.”

Lin x reader. " I wanna get better."

Words// 1045
Thanks again to @hardrock-lafayette being amazing and editing.
Oh shit I wrote a thing and no one swears.
Who knows I might start actually writing more.
Also I’m not perfect if you see something that’s wrong please message me. (If it’s serious, if it’s one misplacement of a period I’m not doing anything.)
I walk up to the counter at the pharmacy to get my medicine for the month, a small smile on my face.

“Hello, Kayla.” I smile up at the pharmacist. She’s the only person who knows about where I am mentally, and she gives me my medication every month. I can’t skip getting them unless they’re closed because of ice on the roads, which gets tough. It almost never happens, but I make it work when it does.

“How are you Y/N?” She asks as she goes back to get my prescription. It helps me when she talks to me, it helps keep me from feeling lonely or freaked out and it helps me keep feeling sane.

“I’m okay Kayla. Everything got tougher and they’ve been putting too much stress on me, even though my boss told people to stop making me do their work, and it’s making me angry.” I rant for a few seconds knowing that I don’t want to talk to Lin about this. Everything he’s taken on right now is stressing him beyond what I’m dealing with. Lin’s my best friend, he’s my rock, and I may or may not like him romantically.

“Well talk to your doctor Y/N. It’s important that you get this taken care of and don’t have any more problems with work. The stress will affect the medication.”

  “I understand, thank you.” I say as I grab the prescription and put them into my purse while walking back home. I should be at work, but I needed the day off because of everything. My boss is the other person in the city who knows about my mental state and she said to get some time off, bless her. Getting time off means convincing Lin to take a break, go out, and stop writing for an hour or two. It also means I have to pretend I’m okay, Pretending I’m not hurting inside. I stop when I realize I’m in front of Lin’s apartment building.

“Heck,” I mumble under my breath.

“Lin let me in I’m freezing.” I shiver. His apartment building has always been frigid, not as cold as some places in winter, but it gets very cold in this building. Something about ‘keeping everyone fresh.’ In the summer okay go for it but it’s the beginning of spring so not a smart move landlord.

“It’s open Y/N.” Lin’s voice is muffled because of the door in between us. I open the door, walking in and sitting right next to Lin while he vigorously types away on his computer. I look at the computer over his shoulder watching him save the document then close his computer.

“I found some things…Y/N you didn’t tell me about the medication…why?” He asks with a soft voice. I stop to look at him with a confused expression. How did he find out how all this happened?

“I didn’t want you to worry about me and get stressed any more than you are.” I say, looking down. Lin stands up, grabbing my purse off the floor and getting out my refill for my prescription.

“I didn’t mean to keep this from you, I was gonna tell you after everything calmed down.”

“How long?”

“What?” I question.

“I asked how long have you been keeping this from me?” He asks. His voice doesn’t sound angry with me, and that’s what scares me the most.

“I found out a little bit after you left Hamilton.”

He looks so angry. No, it’s not anger, it’s disappointment. The man I love is disappointed with me because I didn’t tell him about something serious.

“Really? You thought it would help me? What about you? Huh? Did you think about you?”

“I wanna get better,” I mumble.

“The way you do that is by talking to me.” He sits back down on the couch next to me, grabbing my hand.

“You have to be able to trust me…Y/N please just trust me.” He says, looking me in the eyes. I stand up quickly. I didn’t want this to happen right now, I’m not in the right mind to do this.

“I’m leaving, I can’t do this right now Lin.” I say with my voice shaking. He holds my hand so I can’t walk away from him.

“It doesn’t matter anymore Lin, please let go of me.” I whisper. His face falls, and he looks as if he was gonna cry. I don’t know why, it’s not like he actually cares, no one really does.  

“Please don’t talk about yourself like that. You’re beautiful, smart, you’re everything someone wants.”

“Shut up.” I squeezed my eyes closed and I felt the tears go down my face.

“Stop pretending to like me, stop pretending.” I sob out, not meeting his gaze.

“I love you…please sit back down and talk to me.” He whispers

“Why should I? Give me a reason to sit down and talk to you.” I say, not trusting myself to make choices at this moment. I don’t have anything left to lose but him. This is all my fault.

“Because I love you, because I love every single thing about you, because you’ve always been there when I need you most.” Lin said, his tears finally falling down his cheeks. I laugh because I know he’s lying.

“He’s lying to you” The voice in the back of my head sneers. It’s only there in the darkest of times. Am I ruining what Lin and I could have?

“I love you so much. Not just as your friend, but as a lover. I love you.” I whisper, my hand still in his. He pulls on my hand and I collapse into him.

“I love you so much, I wish I told you sooner.”  

I begin to cry again. This whole conversation could have been avoided, but I let him find out, I didn’t keep it quiet. It’s my fault. Lin strokes his thumb over my hand calming me down.

“I love you, let’s go get some food, then come back here, yeah?”

Maybe things happen for a reason. I had never expected Lin to confess his love for me, but he did. Maybe this is the beginning of something different?

There’s something about Carly’s voice in this song, echoed by the music, that electronic mournfulness. 

The sugary earnestness of it, like a whine, almost sliding to a stop before it leaves her mouth; she always sounds desperate but politely so — remember oh! my baby! — an unstoppable force, a rush, that takes you to the place (by which, I mean the feeling) she describes so often in her songs that neither she nor I have words for but we all know exists, that isn’t love yet but might be considered to be with good lighting or with good hindsight. He always makes me cr-iiy-ahhhh! The way her voice breaks when she has to reach that little more. Sometimes the loneliness is worse than the loss.

Cry is about a guy who can’t open up, in that love is about opening up, that unpeeling of independent self to become an ‘us’. In Gimme Love Carly sings I like the feeling, how you make me shy/ I still think about you, think about you a few lines before she demands fall into me! I would rather have you as you are, this sticky web of despair, then not have you at all. He always makes me cry but you know, I want you to stay tonight. I do, I do. How can I not?

At a party a few weeks ago, in a house by the beach tucked in by the hips of the hills, I drunkenly kissed a boy whose abs I could see through his shirt, as distant and circular as the light on the ceiling. He was very warm and tasted of beer. I felt a murmur of want, like a motorbike starting up in a backstreet. The evening heavy like a shroud, a hot parching anticipation, how his arms were heavy round my neck. My friends and their grins shaking like bracelets on arms, all the girls with their painted toe nails glimmering like jewels on the wet floor. People we love! The things we love! He kept texting me. My ex-boyfriend kissed someone else at a party when we were together. I know because I saw them, their hands holding the rims of glossy wet bottles like presents, entwined like vines, while up by the large drive the boys who tried to look hard fixed their hair in the rear view mirrors of cars just like the Bruce Springsteen song. Skin pressed firm and smooth against skin, in the effervescent dark. I didn’t cry. I want you to, but also, also do you want to? Even with hello, I hear goodbye. I saw a girl so beautiful once I felt I couldn’t breathe going up the stairs, my body stopped but my heart kept going, soaring, I thought it was like a drum clashing in my throat, my ribs, every single piece of me, I just thought oh! and she didn’t even look around at me. What I mean is, we all like indifference. But not to the point of no return — he takes me to the feeling but he never wants to strip down to his.

This is what Cry is saying: we change ourselves and we try to change others, we try to move them, we move ourselves but really we remain the same. Nothing you can do to me will ever be so bad as what I can do to myself. He always makes me cry — so do lots of other things. Sometimes a person is both the future and the present, sometimes a person is none of the things — how did Lana put it? The road gets tough sometimes and I don’t know why. We are both things and none. Just because it was short doesn’t mean it was precious. Just because it was a lie doesn’t mean that when you believed it, it wasn’t good. And sometimes we want and we want and we want but it never happens. The song doesn’t last as long as we want it to. Sometimes he’s a dick. The end, we’re done. It will end, it will end. We all finish. She sings goodbye! but also, also goodbye! Thank God we get to say goodbye, you know. What a relief.

Lana Del Rey Songs For The Signs


The Blackest Day
Carry me home, got my new car and my gun
Wind in my hair, holding your hand, listen to our song
Carry me home, don’t wanna talk about the things to come
Just put your hands up in the air, the radio on

You should’ve known better
Than to have, to let her
Get you under her spell of the weather
I got you where I want you
You’re deader than ever
And falling for forever
I’m playing head games with you

It’s not one of those phases I’m going through
Or just a song, it’s not one of them
I’m on my own
On my own
On my own again


National Anthem
I’m your National Anthem
God, you’re so handsome
Take me to the Hamptons
Bugatti Veyron

He loves to romance them
Reckless abandon
Holdin’ me for ransom
Upper echelon

Money is the reason
We exist
Everybody knows it, it’s a fact
Kiss, kiss

On our drugs and our love
And our dreams and our rage
Blurring the lines between real and the fake
Dark and lonely
I need somebody to hold me


Video Games
I tell you all the time
Heaven is a place on earth with you
Tell me all the things you wanna do

I heard that you like the bad girls
Honey, is that true?
It’s better than I ever even knew

They say that the world was built for two
Only worth living if somebody is loving you
Baby, now you do


Born to Die
Can you make it feel like home, if I tell you you’re mine?

Don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don’t know why

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain


Young & Beautiful
Hot summer nights, mid July
When you and I were forever wild
The crazy days, city lights
The way you’d play with me like a child

Will you still love me
When I’m no longer young and beautiful?

I’ve seen the world, lit it up
As my stage now
Channeling angels in the new age now

Oh that grace, oh that body
Oh that face makes me wanna party
He’s my sun, he makes me shine like diamonds


Shades of Cool
And when he calls
He calls for me and not for you
He lives for love, he loves his drugs
He loves his baby too

But I can’t fix him, can’t make him better
And I can’t do nothing about this strange weather

Baby lives in shades of cool
Cool heart, and hands and aptitude
He lives for love, for women, too


Old Money
Will you still love me when I shine,
From words but not from beauty?

Blue hydrangea, cold cash, divine,
Cashmere, cologne and hot sunshine.
Red racing cars, Sunset and Vine,
And we were young and pretty.

My father’s love was always strong
My mother’s glamour lives on and on
Yet still inside, I felt alone
For reasons unknown to me

But if you send for me, you know I’ll come
And if you call for me, you know I’ll run
I’ll run to you, I’ll run to you
I’ll run, run, run


Off To The Races
Light of my life, fire of my loins
Be a good baby, do what I want
Light of my life, fire of my loins
Give me them gold coins, give me them coins

I’m your little scarlet, starlet, singin’ in the garden
Kiss me on my open mouth
Ready for you

And he shows me, he knows me
Every inch of my tar black soul


I hear the birds on the summer breeze,
I drive fast, I am alone in the night
Been tryin’ hard not to get into trouble,
But I, I’ve got a war in my mind
So, I just ride, just ride

Dying young and playing hard
That’s the way my father made his life an art
Drink all day and we talk ‘til dark
That’s the way the road dogs do it – ride ‘til dark.


Swan Song
Put your white tennis shoes on and follow me
Why work so hard when you could just be free?
You got your money now, you got your legacy

And you’ve been gone so long, you missed everything
The world can change in a day if you go away

Do you like where you’ve been and
Where you’re going to?


West Coast
Down on the West Coast I get this feeling
Like it all could happen that’s why I’m leaving
You for the moment, you for the moment,
Boy Blue, yeah, you

I can see my baby swingin’
His parliament’s on fire and his hands are up
On the balcony and I’m singing
Ooh, baby, ooh, baby, I’m in love

Down on the West Coast, they love their movies
Their golden gods, and rock and roll groupies
But you’ve got the music, you’ve got the music in you, don’t you?


Brooklyn Baby
I think I’m too cool to know ya
You say I’m like the ice I freeze
I’m churning out novels like
Beat poetry on Amphetamines

I’ve got feathers in my hair
I get down to Beat poetry
And my jazz collection’s rare
I can play most anything

Look I know the entire Internet has come to a general consensus that we need to see Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Tom Hiddleston as Loki singing “It’s Tough to Be A God” from Road to El Dorado but

I need to see Ben Mendelsohn and Mads Mikkelsen doing this too because reasons

Keep making me laugh,

The road is long, we carry on.
Try to have fun in the meantime.

Come take a walk on the wild side.
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain.
You like your girls insane.
Choose your last words, this is the last time.
Cause you and I, we were born to die.’

anonymous asked:

What's that one quote where it goes sometimes love is not enough vs. It's. Enough to be young and in love? Can you tell me how it specifically goes ?

“Sometimes love is not enough” is from Born To Die, a song by Lana in 2011

“It’s enough to be young and in love” is from LOVE in 2017.

I’m kind of confused by this question, but you added vs. so I think you want to know how they’re different? I think? LOL. They’re different because Lana’s stating that love isn’t enough, and the rest of the verse goes “the road gets tough I don’t know why.” She’s saying that no matter what, love and love alone, isn’t enough for life or for her or for anybody. Then six years later, Lana’s done a full turn-around and she’s saying love is enough, and in the final verse (I think) of the song she says “it doesn’t matter if I’m not enough,” because she’s  in love/has love, and love is enough for her. It’s all she needs.

Psych Squad + Road trip Aesthetics

Shawn Spencer has lived a good part of his life by one rule - live, laugh, and when things get tough, hit the road. Now he’s about to make some change to his philosophy.

When Lassie gets to the verge of explosive exhaustion, Juliet takes to spend hours and hours at the shooting range and Gus is risking burnout, Shawn offers a solution - and actually a good one. A road trip across California - one rented car, infinite Eighties cds, just the four of them. Naturally, Lassie will drive - Jules will be their navigator, and Shawn and Gus will think about snacks.

They will either kill each other the first night, or have the time of their lives.

*rubs my filthy little shipper hands all over ur ask box* 2p gerita and felicest


Okay so 2p Gerita is like. My main ship. It’s the mother ship. The ship of all ships for me. I basically got a whole angsty thing going on for them because you know, Luci and his issues with expressing actual positive emotion but like…fuck, they’re so fun to play around with?? It’s by no means a healthy pairing, but it has all the potential to be one, and the road to get it to that mutually-beneficial relationship is honestly so tough because you have Lutz, a guy who’s willing to do anything for the man he loves whom he wronged, and then you’ve got Luci, who has not only been hurt brutally by all the people he’s ever loved, but has also trained himself to be a ruthless, heartless monster because he doesn’t know how to be anything else. It’s just…gaaaahhh. Good shit. Angsty dark shit lightly sprinkled with glitter, if that makes sense. I love them.

Felicest is another pairing that I love that is also pretty much not healthy because of the way I depict Luci (anything with him is unhealthy tbh). It’s basically a beauty-and-the-beast sort of thing, except Beast wholeheartedly thinks that Beauty is the reason why his entire life went to hell. Because Luci’s been taught his entire life that no matter how hard he tries, no matter how much he will fight and hurt and bleed, he will always be inferior. He’s the second choice, the flawed backup; he’s the one with the inhuman eyes and the anger issues and the scars, he’s the guy who wakes up screaming at night from nightmares that he should have gotten over centuries ago, he’s the guy who lashes out at everything and anyone because he doesn’t know how to be anything else and gets called a monster for it. And then you’ve got this sweet little fucker on the other side who cries at practically everything and sings and paints and sings as a hobby, and sure, he can fight if he’s pissed enough, but he’s weak. He’d never survive in the world Luci grew up in- he’d be torn to shreds- but instead of being ridiculed and hated for his weakness, he’s loved for it. And this is supposed to be his better half?! I bet you can imagine the outrage that would cause Luci, the hatred- but at the same time, he’d be morbidly fascinated with Feli. He’d want to know why out of all people, this weakling would be his mirror opposite, why he got to live a happier life when all Luci got was suffering. That sort of dynamic is absolutely fascinating to dissect, which is why I love Felicest and working with it.

Send me a ship and I’ll tell you what I think about it:
