could someone let me know whether or not it looks… very green?? it looks fine on my laptop but the colours are completely different on a different monitor, so i’m kind of worried that the colours are way off on a lot of my art ;;;;
I’ve seen a couple different drinks for cough relief, like turmeric tea or “golden milk”, but this is what my grandma showed my mom and my mom showed me.
I think it started out as JUST ginger and milk (traditional ginger tea), that’s why we call it Jengibre (Ginger), but it’s become a lot more powerful since then! I had a pretty nasty sounding cough last Sunday, and it went away before I even finished the cup! It came back in the morning when I woke up, and then after one more cup it went away for good! k here it is:
- A chunk of ginger (should have included a picture… It’s about a quarter of the palm of my hand?)
- 3 stars of anise
- 3 or 4 cinnamon chips (or 2 sticks)
- 1 ½ tsp Holy Basil
- 1 ½ tsp Nettle leaf
- 1 tsp Hyssop herb
- 1 tsp Honey
- 5 or 7 Cloves (I like it spicy… My sister only adds like 3)
- a pinch of Turmeric
- 1 cup Milk
- ¼ cup water
INSTRUCTIONS: (its not word for word as the picture because I wrote it in my book as I was making it and I had to pay attention to the stove!)
- Crush the cinnamon, anise, and cloves together, then set aside. - Peel the ginger, cut it into small pieces. - Start boiling the ¼ cup of water, then add the ginger as it starts to boil. Press on the ginger to get the juices out! - Combine leaf ingredients together, put them in a tea bag or small tea infuser - After about a minute or two, add the cinnamon, anise, and cloves. Stir. - After a minute or two after that, add the teabag/infuser with the herbs. If you’re using a tea bag, press down on it occasionally for potency. - It should be hella boiling now and it looks pretty cool. Add the milk, and stir. At this point, you can add more cinnamon, cloves, or ginger to taste. - Add the turmeric. - When the milk is hot, take it off the heat. Put a sifter over a cup and pour everything in. Squeeze the tea bag to get all the liquid out. Then discard everything except for the liquid in the cup. - add honey or brown sugar to your liking! Honey will help with the cough, but I like it pretty sweet so I add both!
when under heavy fire, deflecting the bullets into allies isn't always the best idea.
not all your problems can be laughed off or bottled up. the smile is bound to crack, and the jar is bound to overflow. why are you so scared to open up?
don't play games with people. stop sending so many hints and start telling people what you really want.
be more daring. stand up for yourself. try new things. don't be afraid to go after what you really want.
at times you can just be a porcupine looking for a hug. learn to let people go if they don't have enough padding, and find people who are more suited to the job.
not everything is a puzzle. even if it were, figuring yourself out is a better place to start than everything else.
what you're looking for isn't always far away. take a closer look at what's around you and you might be surprised by the chances that are already laying at your feet.
nothing is permanent. when you're caught in a storm with no turning back, adjust your rain boots, zip up your coat, and just push forward.
your problems will not fix themselves. don't complain about how they aren't getting better if you refuse to work on them yourself.
find the balance. don't throw yourself into only one thing at a time and neglect all the other things around you during it. sometimes you need to take breaks.
numbness can't kill, but when you can't feel a severed arm, it can be a problem. start thinking about your feelings, and start thinking about the feelings of others around you. keep the good intentions, ditch the blindfold.
coping mechanisms can kill. stop running away from everything that troubles you. being a hypocrite hurts others more than it does yourself. take a deep breath. some things take time.

Your bedroom door swings open and a schoolbag hits your lower back.
“You could of told me you weren’t coming to school.” Namjoon says frustrated.
“And you could have told me you were coming over?” You respond as you sit up on your bed.
He’s wearing black jeans, a oversized band t shirt and a denim jacket. His hair messy and one of his converse shoelaces untied.
“Why aren’t you wearing pants?” He questions looking at your lack of bottoms under your oversized t-shirt that was actually his.
one of my biggest fears is hearing a song and unconsciously singing the lyrics from a weird german youtube parody (because i dont know the actual english lyrics) in the presence of another german speaker
reading long ass meta and discussion posts about comics is honestly so good like my crops are growing my skin is clear my grades are perfect because i just watched an asshole get schooled about the reality of comics by people who actually read comics.
