A pretty, full-faced, youthful, playfull lass. —The family quakers, meek and unsuspicious. —Hamilton, thou shalt not tread on this ground —I mark it for my own. Enter not this circle.

Diary of James McHenry June 20th, 1778

I have been laughing at this entry for a solid five minutes now.

Babyrousa babyrussa

The skull of the Babirussa along with the important teeth of the lower jaw in order to be compare with its relative found by Clement Van Burden, also in the Jungles of Vietnam. The Sus Cofra Satanae or Satanic Boar as Clement decided to named after studied its destructive behavior.

on the topic of lance and sharks

as someone who’s favorite animal is also a shark, here are some things that lance 100% did when he was younger

  • hoarded shark info books
    • he’ll write down one on his christmas list every year, and will always look forward to a new and different book
    • he has a hefty collection of these shark bio books by the time he’s in middle school and can spend hours just looking through all of them, even if he’s read them before
    • any time he has guests over he’ll show them one, all excited like “and this is a thresher shark! they’re one of the least aggressive species, and this long bit on their tail is used like a whip, since their jaws aren’t as strong as other sharks”
  • whenever his family would take trips to the aquarium he’d mope along the walls of fish and stingrays until they got to the real attraction, then would just sit down against the glass of the shark tank and stare
    • then, of course, he’ll go and sneak off into the gift shop when they’re leaving and beg his mom to buy him the shark plushie
    • he has an array of shark-related items (multiple plushies, figurines, even a snapper toy with a shark head) sitting next to his collection of books, all taken from aquarium or ocean park gift shops
  • since he grew up practically living on a beach, he’d constantly hear people whine and complain about the possibility of sharks in the water, and because he has no “this is a stranger maybe i shouldn’t intervene” mentality when it comes to stupid people, he’d go ahead and inform them of all the reasons they have nothing to worry about and are just being dumb
    • um, yeah, he still does this
  • playing pretend (hoooo boy what a nerd)
    • any time he’s in the water it’s always: Lance: “no mom i can’t get out of the water, i’ll die!” Lance: “i really need some new goggles, how am i supposed to be a tiger shark if i can’t even see where i’m swimming?” etc. etc.
  • his favorite shark will change nearly every week, but more often than not it’ll either be a thresher, a blacktip, or a hammerhead

I. I found home in a hotel room and that’s all I can say about falling in love with someone who can’t love you back.
II. This is a poem about the quiet: I don’t want to write about this, but I don’t want to keep it inside my chest.
III. There needs to be a word for when an unrequited lover sets a fire in your chest, because “heartbreak” doesn’t explain the way the smoke signals cry out ‘help.’
IV. You run from your emotions like school children run from prayer, feet synchronous with the church bells, kicking stones into the springtime.
V. When speaking to the dying: fill their lungs with empty promises. You tell me that you love me and your breath comes out like hospital air.

These are the first five Untitled Poems out of my poetry book “4:41″

YGO Fans: Man, I wish we had proof that Marik and Bakura were in a relationship :/

Your fingers find his hair, and start pulling, to try and relieve some of the pressure building up inside of you.

He pulls your underwear off, and positions his face between your legs. You look down at his animalistic eyes, and you see him about to bring his smirking lips to your wetness, when you suddenly hear a beeping.

Oh god please not again.

“Are you going to the party tonight?” I shrugged, writing down the equation on the board. “How do you not know?” I shrugged again, continuing with my notes.

“What do you mean? It’s a yes or no question.” I sighed, turning to my left and looking at Michelle.

“I don’t think I am, Friday’s are kind of my thing, you know?”

“Well, I’m going,” I narrowed my eyes at her. “What?”

“You hate parties – you hate most people! What do you mean you’re going?” She shrugged, about to answer, but someone’s voice sounded over hers.

“Michelle, (Y/N),” we looked up to see Ms. Warren looking at us from her spot at the front of the classroom, “is there something you have to share with the class? A new discovery?” I looked around at everyone, everyone’s eyes on us. I shrunk in my seat while Michelle maintained her usual slouched posture. “No?” We shook our head. “Good, then maybe you could let me finish what I have to share with the class?” We both nodded. “Good, as I was saying!” I looked up in time to see Peter Parker looking at me, smiling softly as he turned his gaze back to his laptop.

I was sitting quietly, listening to Ms. Warren, when I felt Michelle nudge my arm. I looked at her quickly, seeing her gesture down to the desk. I looked down to see a note. I opened it and placed it on top of my notebook, picking up my pen again to make it look like I was writing notes.

parker will be there.

I looked up at Peter, seeing him give his undivided attention to Ms. Warren. I smiled softly, quickly making it go away when I heard Michelle snicker. I picked up my pen and wrote back ‘i’m thinking about it a little harder’ as a response, shoving it back to Michelle. Rolling my eyes when she nudged me playfully.

In my school library there’s a cart full of used books patrons can take for free, and this morning this book was one of the new additions. It was printed in 1953, and has been checked out a total of 3 times, all in 1966, and, I presume, by the same person.

Just one chance

I had noticed. I noticed how he hoped to find that piece of paper in his compliment bag hanging on the wall next to the rest. Hoping to find that someone had written something that made him feel a little better, he didn’t lose hope that someday that bag would have something inside, he didn’t care how long it took.

I had stopped looking in my bag a long time ago; it wasn’t like I couldn’t use some nice words even though they came from an anonymous source that I would probably never know who it was. I had stopped looking inside because I never got any notes, so I decided to stop wasting my time and to stop feeling bad every time I looked inside.

Nevertheless I was surprised that someone like Zach Dempsey didn’t get a hundred of notes, after all he was the star player in the basketball team, he was friends with the popular people of the school, he was always in all the parties and I knew girls liked him, still he didn’t get any compliments in his bag.

I couldn’t help to feel bad for him, so I gather my things very slowly to be the last one in the class and I wrote a note for him, which I left in his compliment bag so the next day he would have something.

I didn’t write a love letter or something like that, it was something pretty simple, something that would make him feel better for the rest of the day; we all deserve to receive compliments from time to time.

A few days passed since the first note I wrote him and I had to admit that I loved how he reacted so I decided to write him a couple more for the next weeks, but I didn’t make it a daily thing.

One day while I was running to class, considering that I was late to first period. I was looking in my bag for my book and being the clumsy person that I am I ran into someone, luckily for me I didn’t fall backwards, that would had been even more embarrassing.

“Oh god, I’m so sorry, I wasn’t looking” I said as fast as I could while I bend down to get the book that I made that person drop.

I saw it was the biology book, the same one that I was looking for in my bag and when I looked to the owner I saw it was Zach and I thanked that it was him and not one of his stupid friends, because even though he hanged out with them Zach was so much nicer than all of them together.

“Don’t worry, are you ok?” he asked grabbing his book and smiling for some reason.

“Yeah, I’m fine, I’m just really bad at walking without running into people” I joked putting my bag on my shoulder “I was looking for my bio book but it seems that I forgot it at home” I sighed “but it doesn’t matter, see you in class” I added walking to the classroom, I didn’t want to get even more late.

“Wait!” he exclaimed making me turn in his direction with a surprised expression on my face “we can walk together and if you want you can sit with me and I’ll share my book with you” I couldn’t help the frown on my forehead. Zach was definitely kind, but not to this level, he was socializing voluntary with me, someone who wasn’t even close to his little world or the people in that world, it was odd.

“Okay… thank you” I answered trying to sound convinced. He reached me and we started walking to class together “how it is that you’re late to bio? You’re always the first one there” I added realizing he was late to his favourite class.

When I didn’t get any answer I looked in his direction and I saw him smiling again, this time even wider. We got to class so I wasn’t going to get any response to my question.

The class went by as usually, this was one of the few classes I liked, I liked to consider myself a person of letters, but I was good at everything in general, even though I hated all the subjects related to science or maths, that’s why it was something unusual that I liked this one in particular and that was the reason why I was always dazed in the teacher’s explanations, but not this time. I couldn0t stop looking to Zach and see how he took notes of everything and how he knew all the answers to the teacher’s questions, even though he just answered them in his notebook and not out loud. I guess that being good at something not related to sports wasn’t “cool”.

Unluckily for me Zach caught me staring and I tried to hide my smile, but it was impossible, I just looked in the teacher’s direction and started to take notes.

“You’re better at this than I thought” I whispered while I was writing the things that I saw in the blackboard.

“That means you knew I was already good at this” he answered looking at me all the time.

That answer was as odd as the rest of things that were happening with him this morning.

“Well, we have this class in common, why wouldn’t I know you’re good at it?” I asked looking at him again.

“Just an observation” there it was again, that smile, the third time I got that smile.

The bell was close to rang when Mr. Porter came into the classroom and I knew he was there for me, I just had to wait to hear my name and see how everyone looked at me.

When he did it I looked at Zach, who was looking at me with something like surprise and concern. I just grabbed my things and followed Mr. Porter to his office.

“I know why you have called me here” I said before he could even start “and I just have to say that everything is ok, I’m fine” I added with my usual tone.

“Your parents don’t think the same, they seem really concern”

“well, they are parents, when you have kids you’re life turns into an endless hole of worries, but I’m fine, I don’t know what they’ve told you, but I know exactly how I feel, can I go now?” the bell rang, great I was going to be late for second period too.

“How do you feel? I’d like to know it so that way I can help you”

“Why do you want to talk about it? To make me feel bad? I’ve said I know how I feel, it doesn’t mean I want to talk about it”

“If you don’t talk about it you won’t be able to solve it”

“This is a waste of time” I said standing and taking my bag. I was in a good mood this morning, but not anymore, thanks to this stupid “try to talk about your feelings”.

“(Y/N) wait” Mr. Porter stood like he was going to follow me, but he didn’t, I walked out of his office without looking behind and I let a big sigh leave my chest.

I started walking to communication class when I heard a certain voice calling me; I turned in his direction with surprise in face again.

“Is everything ok?” Zach asked coming to me.

“Yes, what are you doing here?” I needed to know the answer to that question, because we weren’t friends, we just had a few classes together and now all of the sudden he’s worried about me.

“I just wanted to make sure everything was fine” when I heard how sincere he sounded I felt something I had never felt before, it was like something inside me was completed and I just smiled widely.

“That’s really nice of you” I mumble “Thank you”

We remained silence, I didn’t know what else to say and he looked like he wanted to continue talking, like there was something he wanted to tell me and just when I was about to turn in the opposite direction he talked.

“Would you like to go to Monet’s some time?” he sounded almost nervous. Like if he was exposed to a terrible danger.

I looked at him, confusion all over my face, I was trying to make sense to the fact that he wanted to go out with me, I didn’t want to think he was playing with me, like it was some kind of bet with his friends, that would be really painful.

“Zach… I don’t want you to misunderstand this, but… why?” his expression didn’t change.

“I don’t know, you seem interesting and I’d like to get to know you better” now I was totally amazed.

“Is this some kind of bet you want to win? Because if it is-“

“No!” he said stopping me “no, no bets” I think he realized then why I have my doubts “I promise you it’s nothing like that”

“Then why are you interested suddenly? We’ve been in the same classes since freshman year and we have never had a real conversation, we’re from different worlds and I know you’re nothing like your friends, because if you were I wouldn’t even be talking to you, but when you’re with them… I don’t know, you’re not like this, I guess…”

“I get it, I have a reputation, but give me a chance to prove you that I’m not like that, and you won’t regret it”

“I’ll accept if you tell me the real reason behind this interest”

He stopped for a second, maybe thinking if he wanted to talk about it or not.

“I know you are the one who has left notes in my compliment bag” I opened my mouth to say something, but words didn’t come to me, I was speechless, I didn’t know if I should deny it or tell the truth “You’re not the only one who notice things, you know? I’ve notice how much you enjoy when we are in literature, how you are in your own world when you are bored, how much you like animals” I was blushing by the second “you like bio even though science is not your favourite area and how you laugh even when the jokes aren’t funny at all”

I couldn’t believe how much he noticed me, I always thought no one looked in my direction and that was why I felt so comfortable doing my things.

“How… how do you know the notes were mine?” I whispered, trying to recover myself form the things he had said to me.

“Because I know you’re the only one who knows how much I like bio” he answered giggling “and in your first note you wrote how cute I look when I’m paying attention in bio and that you think I looked happier there than playing basketball”

“That could be anyone…”

“That’s what I thought at first, but you have confirmed my doubts today” he said laughing at my recently shyness “Thank you for the notes by the way”

“Compliments are necessary” I said trying to change the subject.

“Then what do you say, do you want to go to Monet’s some day?” I wasn’t entirely sure about this, I really wanted to believe him, but I couldn’t stop thinking that maybe this was just a game and I think he knew how insecure I felt “I get you have doubts, I just ask for one chance”

“Ok, I’ll go out with you” I said almost cutting him, if I thought about it more I’ll change my mind and I wouldn’t give him a change to prove he had good intentions.

His expression change suddenly, he smiled brightly and I tried to hide mine but it was impossible, I looked in other direction so he couldn’t see it, but I think my attempt was useless.

“I promise you won’t regret it” he said thrilled “do you want to go to the library? We are already really late to class anyways”

“Sure, and you can help me with something I don’t understand in bio” I said walking by his side to the library.

“Of course”

~THE BASIC TOOLS OF A WITCH~
**tools do not need to be used but make casting easer and this is not a complete list, as different paths have there own lists.

THE CHALICE 
the chalice is often made of silver, tho it can be made of any material. It is associated with water, and feminine energies.

THE CAULDRON
A tool of fire, often used to burn offerings , fire magic, or mixing potions. Many use cast iron cauldrons as cooking vessels.

DOWSING RODS
A divination tool often used to find lost objects or find underground water for well making.

MAGICAL JOURNAL
A magical journal often called a book of shadows due to pop culture , often used to keep a log of magical experiences, practices and recipes. 
Many believe the power of the written word, I personally believe that there’s more power in writing down it all by hand. You can use you book any way you want and name it what you want. It’s supposed to be personal and over the years you may have a series of books written by you.

THE WAND
A can be made with a verity of materials as well, many use certain woods and crystals while others use copper. They have masculine energies and considered tools of fire/ air. They are used to direct magical energies.
WILLOW: lunar magic
OAK: fire magic
APPLE: love magic
To name a few woods and magical uses.
THE ATHAME 
A double sided blade that is never to be used to cut any physical surface. The Athame is usually considered to be a tool of air/fire. Used to direct energy , it is masculine
THE BESOM
A broomstick it combines both masculine and feminine energies, used to “sweep away unwanted energies” never to be used for mundane but only for the magical, or else you risk loosing any magical power stores in it.
THE SMOKE FAN 
Used to move magical energies in a space, a tool of air as it can be used in combination with sage for a cleansing ritual.

~BASIC TOOL CONSECRATION~
Prior to consecration I rub the wand with fresh lavender ,eucalyptus or mint leaves.
When I consecrate my tools I hold the tool (wand) in my hand and visualize it absorbing my energies, then I purify the tool( wand) from its old energies with the elements , I choose to use the smoke method. While I smoke cleanse the wand I usually say aloud a blessing of the elements.
Elemental blessing: 
I HOLD IN MY HANDS THE (tool), WHICH I DEDICATE AS A TOOL OF THE (name of element) ELEMENT. I DEDICATE IT TO POSITIVE USES AS I WALK THE PATH OF THE WISE

Using an athame draw a circle around your working area , and then invoke the elements and chosen deities ( optional) then proceed eith your magical workings. There are may ways of casting a circle, everybody does it there own way.
-Invocation of the Elements 
Via Cunningham’s book of shadows
Air,Fire,Water,Earth
Elements of astral birth;
I charge you now; attend to me!
In the circle, rightly cast,
Safe from psychic curse and blast;
I charge you now; attend to me!
From cave and desert, sea and hill
By wand, blade cup, and pentacle
I charge you now ; attend to me!
This is my will, so mote it be!

-Dismissal of the elements
Earth, Water ,fire and Air
Elements both strong and fair,
Return to your abodes now; Flee!
This is my will, so mote it be!

Centering ritual
To be centered means it balanced physically spiritually and then all the set-top bodies as well this concept is a bit intangible most simply know the feeling when we reach it. to use stones to aid centering like those Used in meditation ,stimulate the mind and is recommended for spirituality clear fluorite is a good choice for this task, and restaurants are that are good for both sending and grounding hold the stone hearthstones while the meditate practice breathing exercises are use this out and like music or bells you can also gaze at the stones and practice centering this way in addition using prayer beads can help one become centered and focused.
Chant: 
Body mind and spirit now align
center focus on this goal of mine 
subtile bodies balance to the core
clear and strong I’m ready to explore
-Chan can help create a sense of connectedness
To the sky spirit , rise
with my voice Lift my eyes,
see the sun, moon, and stars 
touch them all, mine and ours

Popular visualization for grounding it’s imagine yourself as a tree roots digging into the soil, you can also visualize yourself a stone.
Chant:
To The ground I am bound 
see my roots reaching down 
to the weight of the stone 
one with earth, flesh and bone

  • once she becomes captain of aca-deca she spends way more time with peter and ned
  • like WAY more time
  • they all study together after school
  • she doesn’t want to admit it but they’re actually her best friends
  • ned is funny and way smarter than he lets on
  • and well then there’s peter
  • oh but there’s peter
  • she doesn’t like peter parker okay 
  • not even a little bit
  • or that’s at least what she tells herself 
  • however, ned is pretty sure he knows otherwise and it makes him smile
  • so he decides to say something to michelle when peter ditches them for the internship
  • “hey emjay how long have you liked peter”
  • michelle is sHOOK
  • and ned just gets this little smirk on his face
  • busted.
  • “wha-no i don’t like peter. what are you talking about it’s peter. peter’s a loser. you guys are losers.”
  • it’s peter
  • and ned gives her this disappointed dad face and shrugs like “aight whatever”
  • “you don’t have to tell me it’s fine i just wanted you to know that i approve if you do”
  • “ned. i don’t need your approval because i. don’t. like. peter.”
  • knowing that ned approves made her heart soar
  • because other than peter, he’s her best friend and that means the world to her that the one person who knows peter the best in the world would say something like that
  • but she also totally doesn’t like peter parker
  • right?
  • it’s peter parker we’re talking about
  • peter who still builds lego death stars
  • the reason she watched all seven movies in one weekend
  • peter who wears stupid science pun shirts
  • which she loves
  • peter who leaves at the weirdest times with no explanation other than “the internship”
  • who she hopes actually just has an internship and isn’t doing something else like ditching aca-deca for someone else
  • not like she cares if peter likes other people
  • she cares a lot
  • peter who zones out during physics and biology and english
  • who makes her laugh until her entire body burns
  • peter who is a complete idiot but is also the smartest person she’s ever met
  • who never needs to know that
  • peter who is kind and good in every sense of the word
  • peter who walks her home one day because it’s raining and she doesn’t have an umbrella
  • but it’s peter
  • peter who smiles and it feels like there’s flowers growing in her lungs and she can’t breathe around him
  • she gets really flustered and slams her bio book shut
  • “I don’t like peter!”
  • she loves peter.
