batteries recharger

loyal-to-reylo  asked:

Hey Nani, I bet you probably haven't thought about this much but I was wondering, when Sigyn takes the magic from others/stops it, does it go to her or is just kinda locked down until she releases it again?

In the most basic way- and not exactly best explanation I admit- is I think of her powers like a rechargeable battery. She’d have a base pool of her own power of course, and probably a limit of how much external magic she can store. 

In my headcanon her magical abilities are FAR stronger when it comes to acting as an unleashing conduit or straight up fettering, so she focuses more on those aspects rather than just hording seidr lol 

While she has control of a magical source tho, she can definitely use and manipulate it as if it were her own


Meet Marzi. She’s an introvert who often finds herself in awkward situations. Marzi used to feel strange about her introverted tendencies. Not anymore! Now she knows that there are tons of introverts out there just like her–introverts who enjoy peace and quiet, need time alone to recharge their battery, and who prefer staying in with their pet and a good book to awkward social interactions.

Just like Marzi, these introverts can often be found in libraries, at home watching Netflix, brainstorming excuses to miss your next party, or doodling cute cartoons. Being an introvert in an extrovert world isn’t always easy, but it certainly is an adventure. In Introvert Doodles, follow Marzi through all of her most uncomfortable, charming, honest, and hilarious moments that everyone–introvert, extrovert, or somewhere in between–can relate to.

Secrets to Success

1. Move outside your comfort zone and try doing something you’re afraid to do.

2. Don’t overplan your week, year or life. Allow yourself the chance to be taken by surprise.

3. Meet new people and make new friends. It’s an excellent way to grow and learn.

4. Make a note of your thoughts and ideas. They may be creative – and lead to something great.

5. Allow yourself some time for peace and solitude. Being quiet and alone will recharge your batteries – and provides a fertile ground for thinking through your new ideas.

6. Be honest with yourself, and what you want from life …. And what you need to do to make your dreams reality.

7. Show an interest in others, and what’s happening in their life. Reaching out and helping people is part of true success.

8. Have fun. We’re attracted to people who seem to love their life – and since we only get one chance, we might as well enjoy our life!

When you are low on spoons...

And every task you complete takes longer than the last…

And as your pain begins to increase…

You try to cover up any visible signs…

But then fatigue begins to set in… 

And you finally have to give in and recharge to gain back enough spoons to get through the next day!

Empath Hangover:

The exhausted, ran-over-by-a-truck feeling that Sensitives get after a catastrophic event.
(Hurricane Matthew, Pulse Shooting, Tsunami’s, Mass Terror, etc)

Empaths feel the emotions and frequencies of others.  When large groups of people are going through an emotional trauma/catastrophe, it’s that much stronger. 


  • Be gentle with yourself.  You need to recharge your batteries and rest
  • Check in with friends/family to make sure their safe, but don’t relive events just now. 
  • Others may want to talk about the event at length, Don’t.  You need distance from all of those raging emotions. 
  • Get something to eat.  Food is grounding. Root Vegetables especially.
  • Drink Water.  A lot of it. 
  • Find Sacred Space.  A place where you can just Be, and feel safe.  Grab a blanket if you need to. 
  • Do a calming activity (knitting, art, cooking, reading, etc). 

As sensitives, if we don’t take this time to recharge and cope with the onslaught of emotions that we’ve just experienced, we can be exhausted for days or at worst spiral into anxiety. 


World War I Folklore — The Legend of the UB-85 Seamonster

On April 30th, 1918 British patrols in the North Atlantic came upon the German U-Boat UB-85 in the open ocean, manned by a visibly terrified crew.  Rather than dive, the crew of the U-Boat immediately surrendered, offering no resistance.  It was noticed that the submarine had sustained damage which prevented it from submerging, however there were no reports of combat actions by Allied forces in the area.  Immediately, the U-Boat’s commander, Captain Gunther Krech was interrogated.  His explanation was one that the British officers certainly did not expect.

According to Krech the submarine had surfaced the night before in order to recharge its batteries when a large monster crawled out of the dark waters and climbed aboard the deck of the sub.  Krech described the creature as thus,

“This beast had large eyes, set in a sort of skull. It had a small head, but with teeth that could be seen glistening in the moonlight. Every man on watch began firing a sidearm at the beast, but the animal had hold of the forward gun mount and refused to let go.”

Immediately the creature began to shake the sub back and forth, attempting to capsize the boat.  The battle continued as the men fired upon the monster while it continued to rattle the boat.  Eventually the monster gave up and let go, disappearing into the dark abyss.  The U-Boat was saved, but damage to the U-Boat resulting from the battle with the creature made it impossible for the boat to submerge.

UB-85 was scuttled by the British, her crew taken as prisoners of war.

Libra’s can sometimes be big homebody’s. While the sign is super sociable, they can also find it draining to be around other people. Many Libra’s need to spend time alone in order to recharge their batteries. It is important to Libra to do this also because if they spend all their time with other people, they will lose their sense of self. Libra naturally becomes more like the people they are hanging around. So if they spend all their time with other people Libra will just naturally become a combination of those other people with no idea who they are.

The best way to describe ADHD is like this, you know the rechargeable battery operated remote control cars? Ok so you know when the battery is running out and no matter how hard you press the button you just can’t go any faster? And then there’s other cars who are pressing the button half as much as you and they are speeding past you. You have to put in twice as much effort just to barely keep up. 

That’s what ADHD is like. 

Hello there! I survived first week of school without crying or breaking down, almost a new record! I got diagnosed with ptsd and ocd this week and it feels so strange because I’m always pretending that I’m fine and at some point it saves me from doing stupid things but I need to take care of myself! I know I look pretty and bubbly etc but there are thoughts inside my brain, you don’t want to know about!
I will recharge my batteries over the weekend!
I love y'all so much! And I really want to say THANK YOU to all the people who are constantly supporting me, no matter what! I don’t know where I would be without all your love! Thank you so much! @amys-recovery @enarak @recoveringcj @recoverycactus @discovering-kitty @queen-of-carbs @a-flower-child @tatlioca !! @broetzmannleigh @todeath

TGIF workout and smoothie (banana and berry) 🤗 To be honest this week was rough with problems coming up every day and little time to deal with them but being consistent and working out everyday has definitely given me the endorphins I needed to keep going and take one thing at a time // Finals are in less than 2 weeks but taking some time off this weekend to recharge my batteries and breathe a little ✌️️ Happy week-end everyone

This supercapacitor battery can be recharged 30,000 times

Everyone and anyone with a smartphone know it is not long before your phone holds a charge for less and less time as the battery begins to degrade. But new research by scientists at the NanoScience Technology Center at the University of Central Florida (UCF), USA, could change that. The team have developed a new method for producing flexible supercapacitors that can store greater amounts of energy and can be recharged over 30,000 times without degradation. This new method could transform technology such as electric vehicles and mobile phones in the future.

‘If you were to replace the batteries with these supercapacitors, you could charge your mobile phone in a few seconds and you wouldn’t need to charge it again for over a week,’ said University of Central Florida researcher Nitin Choudhary.

The UCF team has attempted to apply newly discovered 2D materials that measure just a few atoms thick to supercapacitors. Other scientists have also tried formulations with other 2D materials including graphene, but had only limited success. The new supercapacitors are composed of millions of nanometre-thick wires coated with shells of 2D materials. The core facilitates the super-fast charging and discharging that makes supercapacitors powerful, and the 2D coating delivers the energy storage ability.

‘We developed a simple chemical synthesis approach so we can very nicely integrate the existing materials with the two-dimensional materials,’ said Yeonwoong Eric Jung, assistant professor of the study. Jung is working with UCF’s Office of Technology Transfer to patent the new process. ‘It’s not ready for commercialisation,’ Jung said. ‘But this is a proof-of-concept demonstration, and our studies show there are very high impacts for many technologies.’

Little self-indulgent illustration sketch I decided to make of a tender little moment between Cyros and Mal in one of the meditation gardens at his house.

Being a god of exceptionally fine tastes, Cyros has a VERY swanky temple/mansion somewhere in Greece that he uses for training, meditation and recharging his batteries. It also is used for hosting massive fetes and parties that, due to there being a portal door to his condo in the Traverse, spans multiple dimensions over multiple nights. Lots of verdant rooms and views, too! He built most of the place by hand over millenia, so it’s uniquely his style haha.

Cyros and Mal are mine, as is art.


I had a restful winter break and I hope you (yes, you!) did as well :) It’s always nice to recharge your batteries at the end of the year, and it allowed me some time to really think about the direction I want to take this business and make some big decisions. More to come on that as I flesh things out a bit more ^_^

In the mean time, I’ve been diving head-first into some of the new projects & products I want to introduce this year. I thought I’d start with this little baby penguin necklace while it’s still cold here in Toronto. I’ve had the idea for about 2 months now, but the holiday rush meant that I couldn’t really focus on any new ideas, so here it is all brand spanking new for 2017. 

I made a little troupe, and they are available in my etsy shop here

Also I post a lot more frequently over on instagram and the content tends to vary (no cross-posting I promise!) so if you’re inclined to see updates more often, please join me there :)
