It’s easy to look back to the past, and laugh at those morons who used to think that the sun revolved around the Earth. One of the first things you learn in school is that planets revolve around the sun - not the other way around - because the sun is the real star of our solar system, in every sense of the word. And yet that’s not entirely accurate: Remember those solar system models, with the sun stuck on an immobile pillar, while all the other planets spin around it on wires? You know, every model of the solar system you’ve ever seen?
It’s wrong, and so is that diorama your stupid kid made that won second place at the science fair, losing out to a baking soda volcano. In reality, the sun is just another orbiting object, which also rotates around the true center of the solar system, the barycenter. What’s there? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
Every morning when I wake up, my mother sees my dead looking eyes and asks “what’s wrong?”
And every morning I tell her,
“Nothing at all”
After all, nothing is wrong. The moon is still revolving around earth, and earth is still revolving around the sun. The birds are still chirping, this city is still buzzing.
And this is how life is supposed to be isn’t it? Sometimes soul mates aren’t meant to be together, sometimes one becomes unhealthy for the other. So you move on, find new people to love and you never allow yourself to wonder
“will I ever love anyone else I meet the same way I loved them?”
But I’m an over thinker, and that question is always on the back of mind.
“will I ever really be able to move on?”
“If nothing is wrong, then why do you have that look on your face?” my mother asks again.
And I don’t know what else to do except to shrug at her and walk away.
Because nothing is wrong.
Nothing is wrong, but I still wake up half dazed because I would rather be in dreamland than in a reality that refuses to acknowledge my pain.
Nothing is wrong, yet my chest is always tight and there’s a constant imaginary lump in my throat; just on the verge of crying but not quite there.
Nothing is wrong at all, but I suck at goodbyes; and even more so at talking about it.
Nothing is wrong, but nothing is right either.
Welcome to week five of the Writers Creed Challenges! For this week, we’d like for you guys to take a moment towards the end of your day and capture the beauty of the marvelous thing this earth revolves around: the sun.
The challenge of this week is to take a picture of the sunset and describe to us what you see. Let it inspire you and write whatever comes to mind, whether it is a visual description or anything else you may think of. Please include the picture you took if you can in your post as well so we can see the inspiration.
For our challenges, we accept and encourage all types of writing, you are not restricted in terms of style. We just ask you to please stay on topic and please read our post on topics we do not want glorified and condoned, as they will not be reblogged by us.
Tag your post #writerscreedchallenge and we will reblog your work throughout the week. Thanks, and looking forward to reading all your work. If you are concerned that your work was overlooked (Tumblr can be glitchy with tags), please contact @tinaspoetry. She’s running the prompt this week.
*note: for writing that is not related to the challenge please use the tag #writerscreed*
As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to message any one of the administrators or send us an ask in our inbox.
So the year is coming to an end, the Earth is gonna completely revolve around the Sun and we don't know what will happen after that. My question/S for you is that, will you be partaking in Huevember next year/ tomorrow? Why did you delete some of the asks your followers asked? And what is your new year's resolution? Also happy new year :3
Happy New Years (almost)!
I might be partaking in Inktober and Huevember in 2017 :“3
And asks were deleted for NSFW reasons, those were the only ones I touched, many of which were old anyways! Tumblr has been very oversensitive so I’m just trying to make sure I’m not in the red ^w^)/
And my New Years resolution is just to keep drawing and get better, and keep enjoying life!~
This summer, make it your goal to see beach bonfires burn—and not your skin. We want to make sure no matter where you travel this season, you’re set on sun safety. Below, we rounded up five portable sunscreens in varying formats you’re sure to love. JESSICA VELEZ
There are two types of people in this world: those who lounge by the pool with a book, and those that dive right in. Luckily, inner mermaids with delicate fins don’t have to worry about rays while practicing their backstroke. Shiseido’s Wet Force line now comes with a face and body protector specially formulated for sensitive skin. So just keep swimming—but be sure to reapply the fragrance-free formula every 80 minutes…or whenever you’re sick of playing Marco Polo.
Supergoop created a sunscreen and setting spray in one, thus saving us from melted foundation and crab face—aka, summertime sadness. After your last cat eye flick, mist on this refreshing minty spray to lock everything in place and get a dose of SPF 50. Here’s the real kicker: You can reapply all day, err day without disrupting your strobe in the slightest. Now if only we could say the same for BBQ sauce…
Everything about Fresh Sugar Sport SPF30 screams summer—from it’s neon packaging to its orange ice-pop scent. In true Fresh fashion, the formula is sweetened up with skin-nourishing sugar. It’s also perfect for surfers outfitted in wetsuits since it’s meant to be applied to exposed areas like lips, face, and around the eyes. Plus it’s water resistant. But it’s suitable for anyone with a competitive spirit, since it’s a clear winner in our eyes.
“Thanks, it has SPF” is what you should say when someone compliments your supple lips. Coola LipLux’s creamy (read, not waxy) formula has more than usual, clocking in at SPF 30. Why do your lips need sun protection? It helps prevent photo-aging and burning, which aren’t things you want to kiss hello to anytime soon. Coola’s version comes loaded with nutrients and antioxidants to keep your lips smiling.
A SPF-infused tinted powder that fits in your clutch? Genius. ColorScience’s Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen Brush SPF50 comes in a purse-friendly tube for easy reapplication. Think of it as a way to shine-proof your complexion while also protecting your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. That’s what we like to call a win-win.
what he says:
do you want to know why i ride in circles? it's because the earth is round.
what he means:
you're the sun to my earth. everything revolves around you, including me. you're my everything, my world. so sit there and let me physically ride a bicycle in circles around you to show my love. even better, lets lowkey confess our feelings to each other on a national commercial since fans will still think we're friendship goals no matter how close we get. i mean remember their reactions to our break up video? Haha #brotp #friendshipgoals
Antique Scientific Diagram of an Astronomical Clock, 1773.
The dark center object is the Earth. The Moon to the left and the Sun to the right. The Moon is rotating, revolving around the Earth, rotating around the Sun as it stays in rotation around the Earth. The Earth is not making a circle equidistant from the Sun, but rather one in which it is closer during some parts of the Ellipse. The Earth’s behaviour is thus so regular that time can be kept and seasons can be predicted.
You're an idiot. Zigi is real, there's no need for anyone to fake relationships and there never has been. Ziam is not real, Larry is not real.
Your opinions are yours and my beliefs are mine. If you believe that the sun revolves around the earth, or that the earth is flat then there is no much I can do to convince you otherwise. Have a good oblivious day anon.
