bearing and distance

Life Update

So Thursday I took my last final needed in order to get my degree. Grades have already been posted and guess who’s getting honors cords! After almost 4 years and 209 credits later I’m finally getting my degree. This has been the biggest relief holy crap. Now all I have to do is start prepping for life after college (also if anybody has advice please send me some I’d forever appreciate it). Wesley and I are also planning on moving to Ohio after graduation in June so there’s a lil couple update. We’ve also got a few concerts in the next couple months: State Champs, Bastille and Rock on the Range so I’m excited for that! Super nervous and scared for the future but baby steps, right? I’m glad I’ve finished with this one step in my life. Scared and a little nervous for what the future holds but I think I’m ready to move forward with my life!

You may never know how important you are to me or how much I care for you, but you are and you will always be. Bear in mind that I couldn’t afford to lose someone I’ve learned to care about so much.
What’s worse than
a long distance
ending in,
‘it could’ve worked
if we’d just been
The homesickness
killed us.
We couldn’t bear
the prolonged
It’s hard not to die
when you only
the bliss of living
on weekends…
or less even.

This giant spiral disk of stars, dust, and gas is 170,000 light-years across or nearly twice the diameter of our galaxy, the Milky Way. M101 is estimated to contain at least one trillion stars. Approximately 100 billion of these stars could be like our Sun in terms of temperature and lifetime.

The galaxy’s spiral arms are sprinkled with large regions of star-forming nebulae. These nebulae are areas of intense star formation within giant molecular hydrogen clouds. Brilliant young clusters of hot, blue, newborn stars trace out the spiral arms. The disk of M101 is so thin that Hubble easily sees many more distant galaxies lying behind the galaxy.

M101 (also nicknamed the Pinwheel Galaxy) lies in the northern circumpolar constellation, Ursa Major (The Great Bear), at a distance of 25 million light-years from Earth. Therefore, we are seeing the galaxy as it looked 25 million years ago — when the light we’re receiving from it now was emitted by its stars — at the beginning of Earth’s Miocene Period, when mammals flourished and the Mastodon first appeared on Earth. The galaxy fills a region in the sky equal to one-fifth the area of the full moon.
