come hard

Let me introduce you to three of my friends: hallucigenia, opabinia, and wiwaxia. They’re all from the Cambrian explosion, the period of time around 500 million years ago when life was just starting and was still trying to figure out questions like “how should a mouth work?” and “legs?”

Hallucigenia was about an inch long (most life back then was tiny, they were only a few eras removed from being single celled after all) and it had sixteen clawed legs, hard spines coming out of its back, and a wicked tentacle neckbeard. 

Opabinia was between two to three inches long and it had thirty fins along the side of its body, along with five mushroom shaped eyes on top of its head. By far though, it’s most interesting feature was its strange proboscis. Like a Dr. Moreau style mashup of an elephant and a lobster, the long nose terminated in a large claw that it used to grab prey and bring it to its backward facing mouth.

Finally, this is wiwaxia. This danger-artichoke was a two inch long armored slug-like creature with no head. In fact, its actual body was largely just its one massive foot. 

I find these animals interesting for three main reasons. First, it’s incredibly fascinating to see all of the potential paths that life on earth could have taken. Imagine an ocean filled with elephant lobsters! Second, whenever I feel like my life is going nowhere and all my choices are the wrong ones, I like to think that I’m in in my phase where I’m still developing hallucigenias and wiwaxias, and not yet making awesome things like butterflies or velociraptors. Finally - it serves as a stark reminder that if we ever find alien life, there is a fantastic chance it will look like nothing we’ve ever seen before - it might look more like one of these creatures than a human being.

Coming to Terms [Jason Todd x Reader]

A/N: Okay so I was working on requests and ships and things but this idea just randomly popped in my head and I just had to get it down before I lost it. It’s short and pretty deep. I don’t know where it came from – not angst but deep. (Sorry it’s kinds feels)

_______

It’s hard.

Hard to come to terms.

Come to terms with the feeling of inferiority. Of a mundane life. Of not reaching that story book ending.

In society, those terms are law. But also the shackles that bind you.

Shackle you to a life of seeing a bright spot, almost reaching it, then it gets snuffed out in an instant. Like a wick that just ran out.

That light you chased for days, weeks, months… years.

The light that you almost had in your grasp. But fled into darkness.

A light never to be seen again. Because of life’s unfair terms.

A light cut off from oxygen. Whether that be voluntary, or forced.

Forced

A word to describe the way your light was taken from you.

An instant was all it took. An instant to snuff out your chased light. To sign your terms and lock your shackles.

An unbreakable contract.

A door way to seclusion.

A door you thought would forever be locked. The key thrown away and forgotten.

A single instant, and everything you ever wanted disappeared. Turning into just wanting that light back.

A single instant took everything.

The thing is….

You didn’t think a single instant could bring it back. Bring it all back.

But it did. 

Everything was back when you opened the door to see your snuffed out light burning brighter than the sun.

Your light that despite the impossibility, re-ignited.

And this time it chased you, ending up at your welcome mat.

Ending up at it’s home.

Awestruck your light was before you. Leaving you with a simple collection of letters.

“Jason”

anonymous asked:

can I request some random kevin hcs? take your time and tysm🌸

I’m not sure if you’ve ever seen my trinity of Kevin Day posts [x] [x] [x] but I am always ready to talk about this loser :))

  • Nora once mentioned Kevin learning how to play piano and it felt like my Time Had Come
    • it’s so hard for him???
    • piano music (classical especially) usually has really strong and complex melodies in the right hand with simple stuff going on in the left and imagine how FRUSTRATED Kevin gets with it
    • his left hand always goes on too strong
    • the peddle’s too wet
    • the tempo isn’t even
    • and Perfectionist Kevin Day cannot stand it he’s probably never gone through an entire song without screaming at least once
    • (Thea films it and sends it to Andrew, who surprises Neil by actually letting out a bark of laughter)
  • his first year at Palmetto, Kevin convinces himself that taking bio as an elective was a good idea
    • it’s important to know what’s going on in your body, right?
    • (and at least the math’s minimal)
    • except he absolutely hates it
    • the professor’s snobby with him because he isn’t a sciences student
    • Kevin had thought he was good at memorizing things? but apparently not when trying to name all of the different enzymes in the human body
    • (it didn’t help that Andrew got a kick out of scrawling all over his notes with dumb doodles)
    • ((usually drawings of liver tumors and an arrow pointing to it saying “you”))
    • he barely scrapes by and vows to never touch sciences again, until somehow Neil challenges him to try first-year physics in his senior year
  • you know how Neil doodles little fox paws all over his homework? Kevin can draw 30+ different models with their original paintwork by memory
  • imagine him barely conscious and flipping through channels because the only games on are painful to watch
    • somehow he manages to watch an hour’s worth of Ancient Aliens and can’t sort out facts from pseudo-history the next day in class
    • the entire room gasps as he confusedly explains UFO sightings and religion before breaking off halfway in horror
  • probably tmi but goes to the washroom 10+ times a day because he thinks drinking the full recommended 2 liters is a good idea
  • the one and only time Kevin ever managed to beat Neil in running, they found out the next day it was because Neil had fractured something in his ankle and couldn’t play the next game
    • (goddammit, Neil)
  • Kevin once got banned from ever trying to coach little leagues Exy after nearly making 3 kids cry
    • it wasn’t that he was being mean, it’s just that Kevin has a hard time remembering what children are actually capable of doing
    • (also he kept assigning suicides omg)
  • can he cook? not really. but he keeps trying anyways???
  • his birthday in future years involves dinner with Wymack (and sometimes Abby and sometimes all the other Foxes crash)
    • Kevin asks for carrot cake every year and he’s happy enough that usually he’ll refrain from bugging Andrew and Nicky about the amount of extra frosting they squeeze on
Guys, I’m Sorry

Okay, that title made this seem like a super serious thing… which it sort of is, but you really shouldn’t worry too much about it.

I’m going through a really hard time now - like, really hard - so I probably won’t be able to post as much as I’d like to. I’ll still try to write, but I just thought I’d inform you that it’s not that easy for me right now, so the stuff that I write might not be posted as regularly as before, and also, I’m having a hard time coming up with any ideas that wouldn’t be so angsty and sad.

Anyway, thanks! You guys mean a lot to me, I love you all, and I’ll see you soon (if I can get out of this emotional storm soon?) with new shorties! <3

1x5 Heart of Darkness Review

Cons: 

*Somebody told me there was going to be a lot of gay scenes but that didn’t really happen? Unless you count subtext I guess then there was. 

*Okay I’m not even going to lie, the way Mr. Cooper described the blood feud was pretty corny. He sounded way too intense about it or something. 

*Please can we not have Mr. Andrews and Mrs. Lodge have a romance? It’s just really fucking weird to me because I ship Archie and Ronnie so much lol 

*Where the fuck is Jughead living

*On that note, where the heck did he get a suit? 

*That’s it really. I had to think pretty hard to come up with those. 

Pros: 

*REGGIE WAS IN THE EPISODE?? For more than two seconds???

*Reggie was actually properly characterized and shown as being a good friend to Archie with a side of competition? I’m living. 

*CHERONICA!!!! 

*Betty, Jughead and Kevin creating a murder board and working to solve Jason’s murder! It reminds me of the Audrey and Noah team up on Scream, and I’m loving it 

*Jughead hiding from an old woman behind Betty literally had me so weak 

*Archie and Valerie are adorable 

*Valerie is amazing 

*Awkward Fred Andrews is adorable and hilarious 

*Veronica and her Mom’s relationship is so sweet. At least there’s one nice Riverdale Mom. 

*The Archie x Ronnie scene was so cute, I was living 

*The Blossom family reminds me of every horror movie family I’ve ever seen. They even have the old woman with the spooky eye. I’m living 

*Great cinematography. I loved it. The Blossom mansion, the spooky cemetery, it was all just so pretty and creepy at the same time. 

*Also great soundtrack 

*I was really digging the whole gothic horror movie vibe in this episode 

Overall thoughts: 

*I fucking called that Polly was probably in a psych ward and not a group home. I knew it

*How will Jughead and Betty contact Polly if 1) they don’t know where she is exactly 2) I’ve been in a psych ward, and outside contact is pretty much a no go so IDK how they will handle that 

*I thought I couldn’t hate a character more than I hate Mrs. Cooper. And then I watched the scenes with Mrs. Blossom :( 

*Does anyone else think Mr. Cooper is too obvious of a suspect? I don’t know. I don’t think they’ll be that obvious. Who knows, though. 

*Is Jennifer Gibson gone for good? I really thought she had more to hide, and that there would be more to her like maybe she was working with the murderer. 

*Give me more Riverdale Gang Murder Investigation Team and I’m hooked 

this is a reminder that you matter. i know most days it feels like you’re nothing, but please don’t ever forget that somebody out there cares about you.

you matter to someone, and maybe it’s in the smallest ways. maybe you gave a homeless man a dollar once three years ago. maybe you told a girl you liked her hair last week. maybe you’ve forgotten, but they haven’t. because you made them feel something that’s hard to come by.

(you made them feel happiness.)

there are people out there who are so happy you exist. i am so happy you exist. if you’re reading this, please know that i care, please know that people do care.

please know that you matter.

don’t ever forget that.

My Favourite Youtubers

So, I had this entry in my head for a while because watching youtube lately has cheered me up so much in the mornings before going to school, specially since I don´t watch TV anymore since a long time ago.. and I spend a lot of time alone.  So watching/listening to nice videos feels so good. And its quite hard to come across good youtubers to follow (in my opinion). So here are some of my favourites! 

In no personal order (I just post as I find them on my list):

julia ling kelleher - She is probably in my top 3 favourite youtubers on earth. she is just an angel, so creative filming either bits of her life or just pieces of her mind.. i think i watched all of her vids in a row when i found her.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9Gppwzcfbc

janna tew - oh my god i love her, i think luna sent me her video and i fell in love. i wish she posted more often because she inspires me so much. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7OPGGn6hTI

Hitomi  Mochizuki - she posts lifestyle videos, fashion and most of all I really enjoy her talking while I do things in the background! She has struggled so much with depression in the past, and she shares her point of view in everything without censoring herself I really respect her on that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xb3u69HlBeE

LaMadelynn - one of my favourite youtubers by far, she is so creative and she is so down to earth person, I just  love her videos! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDOOkJqSrs4

Living big in a tiny house - The title says it all, just videos of people living in tiny little houses, and how they struggle (or not!!) to do things inside, and just the way the live inside their small house. Matsuo linked me to this youtube channel and I loved it immediately. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYVJbupG3Xg

may weaver - another artistic soul https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJZ6eV_OJ4c

iamkareno - She is mostly a fashion/makeup artist that I enjoy watching every now and then! I like her video edits most of all, and the music she picks for her vids.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64FkRNMiSB8

poppy - I really cant explain poppy but i keep watching her videos, so there you go! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QO7tCTQaADY

elena sheidlin - I stumbled across her because of trevor brown, the way she makes photography is quite unique imo. Her videos are in russian though, but it´s still interesting to watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrBxsbDRQZA

Laura ribeiro - I looove laura´s japan diaries, it reminds me a little of myself and the way she thinks about life in general. I love her style and since she is a model  she posts so cute outfits too. (she also has a lgbt channel) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQAWoFX47WE

sherliza moe - makes such cute alternative makeup tutorials, she is just mesmerizing to watch.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBWOo6-tF3Q

savannah brown - i first found her through her “hi, i am a slut -slam poem” video and i liked how she talks about anxiety and introversion as well. https://youtu.be/I4sALgfj6R0

happy d. artist -   i went through an artist/youtuber follow spree and i found her, i love how she talk about her art process and how she has made her way up to where she is now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZH4ray5bl0

jim reno - i love the way she edits her videos and how creative she is, her videos are mostly in spanish but some of her vids have subs! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBaWJZ_0S-o

princess mei - shes a doll!, i love her outfits and makeup tutorials too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABsJBftBg9o

Broadly - I love documentaries, and this channel is GOLD. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7gLC4l5Nmo

michaela hosp -  i have no idea how i came across her i think it was because of julia ling?, but im soooo glad i did, she is so cute and relaxing to watch.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-kxtLCicDI

rachel cobb - i found her through julia as well.. such a cute soul! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ug3jb5KaCl0

taraola - found through julia as well, I LOOOOVE her short videos so much she is so talented, and those aesthetics…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWkvd-3MSgw

attaka maki -love her vids even when she doesnt post that often..  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJDPKsd3k9s&t=115s

paulinexelaine  asked:

If training videos will be hard to come up with can you do first impressions? Like how your birds like different food or toys? That would be fun to watch! 😄

It’s not necessarily difficult to come up with training tutorial ideas per-say, I can think of loads of things the birds could learn it’s just a matter of having the consistent time to help keep them learning over a prolonged period of time and get to the end result efficiently and accurately.  It’s super difficult to teach a concept if you can’t train every single day at least once (preferably twice).

I’m not too sure how well a first impression video would go over, their responses are pretty consistent for most things, Zeeby stares at it for a bit, I encourage her to check it out.  Mia stands on the other side of the room going ‘oh no it’s new it’s terrifying’ then as soon as Zeeby goes “oh dang this is a fun thing” Mia goes “IT MINE”.

If I did do one it’d likely be a one time thing or I’d have to find a better format to do it with, i.e learning how to use new foraging toys would be more variable than just a new toy in general.

So not suuuuuuper sure but I will add it to the list and give it more thought
