“Humans cannot reject temptation. When they are plunged into the depths of despair, likened to Hell, they will hold on to anything that may help them escape from the situation they are in, even if it’s merely a spider’s thread, no matter what sort of humans they are. That’s exactly what I did. Life was dull, boring, uninteresting. Heists, murders… everything sounded amusing to me. And tell me, Mingyu: if we are to die one day, wouldn’t it be better to have no regrets? (…)”

 LET’S TALK ABOUT THE COLOR MEANING, GUYS.

Yuri is wearing white suit. Meaning of white in Japanese culture: it represents purity and cleanliness in traditional Japanese society, and is seen as a blessed color. Because of the sacred nature of the color, white is the color of weddings and other joyful life events, and appears on the Japanese flag. (Shall I remind you, that women’s wedding dress is white? What’s more, I’ve read somewhere, that in Japan the groom also may wear white suit).

Victor is in black suit: black is a powerful and foreboding color in Japanese culture. Black has also traditionally been a color of formality, and has increasingly come to represent elegance, with the growing popularity of Western conceptions of black tie events. (Men wear black wedding suits).

FLOWERS:
Yuri bouquet reminds me of typical wedding bouquet. (See the photo above in reference). 
Victor is holding blue rose (I guess). Blue represents purity and cleanliness in traditional Japanese culture, largely because of the vast stretches of blue water that surrounds the Japanese islands. As such, blue also represents calmness and stability. It’s also the color of December (Victor’s birthday is December 25th).

IF IT’S NOT A WEDDING PICTURE THEN I DON’T KNOW WHAT THIS IS.

day 1/100 days of productivity

rewriting notes while sipping tea. public service announcement: get yourself one of these pencils! they are called sprout pencils and when you use one until it’s a nub, you can plant it (seed capsule on end instead of eraser). pencils which you can grow into herbs: best concept ever. this one is rosemary and I purchased a box of them, so one day I will have an assortment of herbs planted as a result of slaving away writing notes ;0 tell your plant loving student friends 🌱

hope you’re having a beautiful day filled with happiness 🤗😚

I was just looking at the Valentine's Day comic from last year and I'm like "wow Christine had the same haircut when she was little that she does now" and then I remembered that she had to have all her hair cut off due to lice and she probably kept the same haircut when it grew back because she had such good memories with it,.

*SOBS LOUDLY*

Yep…yep…you’ll notice she’s been wearing her hair up in the comic recently….

Wearing it up when she’s with other people/Raoul:

Wearing it down with Erik (and in daydreams):

 Part of that is the concept of growing up–putting your hair up was kind of a right of passage for young ladies at the time. She is trying to mature as a person, but she also doesn’t want to let go of the past and of her childhood as she faces a bleak future but…I digress. *sobs more*

What the actual fuck. I hope I misunderstood what I just read but I don't think i did. Do you actually mean to tell me that you KILL ANIMALS LIKE ROOSTERS AND PIGS AND DOGS AND CATS FOR YOUR CRAFT?!? that's sick. I am never one to judge another's craft but damn this is an exception. You are sick and twisted and deserve to be locked up you fucking monster. Shit dude that's so messed up I might sick peta on you or put your ass in a jar.

You act like peta is a government power. And trying to curse me with some generic jar spell is just about as sad as someone calling themselves a witch yet neglecting to acknowledge and accept the place animal sacrifice has had in magic and witchcraft since their conception.

anonymous asked:

okay totally random question but who'd you marry in stardew valley?

✿ Abigail! she eats rocks. 10/10 perfect wife. 

The lack of rival heart events destroyed me though, because I really liked Penny and wanted her to find a way to move out of her terrible living situation. :( like even a friendship route with another character where they help her move out would be great??? just??? plz. plz save penny.

I also became Very Good Friends with the sad chicken man.

As a side note, I played the game as Vega, and I want you all to imagine this shitty hitman taking over a farm as a way to lay low after something goes terribly wrong at work and then getting disgustingly fascinated by the concept of growing things.

(vega would have TOOOONS of pot behind their shed.)

I never got to have that first crush sort of thing,
you know, the one where the twelve year olds
fall in love and run away to the backyard to
elope in front of their little sisters.

I never had that first-grade girlfriend
and I never had that numb feeling you
get when you kiss someone for the first time.
But it’s a good numb. The world stopped for
a little bit and everything is good.

Sure, I lip-locked a girl, but I was never in
love with her, although I convinced myself
I was. But I never got to be sixteen and
madly in love with someone. I never got
that young adult novel plot point.

I’m sort of bitter about it.

But not that bitter, I guess. Some kids get
together and smoke weed or drink Jack
Daniels or fuck on that couch in the basement.
You know the one.
Awkwardly moving between their teenaged bodies,
smiling and laughing because dear God,
both of you look so, so stupid.

I sat on the swings during those nights,
while everyone else was hooking up or
falling in love.
I watched the stars play in the sky while
my friends watched the stars twinkle
in their lovers’ eyes.

I’ve never seen someone naked,
figuratively and/or literally.
I guess I’m okay with that.
I wouldn’t want to fuck you anyway.
I don’t really know how I would.
You like me just fine, but I’m not
really the sort of dude you’d probably be
cool with having inside of you.

The Cubist Garden of Villa Noailles in Hyères, France by Gabriel Guévrékian [1926]. The architect was an ethic Armenian from Constantinople [now Istanbul] who was raised in Tehran and studied in Vienna. This combination of east and west had a profound impact on his architectural style. Here he clashed what he learned in Vienna and Paris, cubism and bauhaus, with the architecture he saw growing up, the paradisiacal concept of the Persian garden. The word paradise itself comes from the Old Persian term for a walled enclosure or garden. 

The villa Noailles features as one of the very first modernist style buildings constructed in France. Designed in December 1923, the original villa was built for Charles and Marie-Laure de Noailles by the architect Rob Mallet-Stevens and exhibits the founding tenets of the rationalist movement: practicality, a purification of decorative features, roofs, terraces, light, hygiene… The extensions, which continued right up until 1933, along with the exceptional development of the surrounding property (courtyard and gardens), turned a modest holiday home into a true 1800m2, immobile ocean liner: fifteen master bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms, a swimming pool, a squash court, a hairdressing salon, a resident gym instructor, etc.

Features such as the clocks, which are all controlled by a central system, the retracting bay-windows and the mirrored windows, all contribute to the modernity of the site. A heliotropic house, overlooking the bay of Hyères, the villa Noailles celebrated a new lifestyle which favoured body and nature. The interior decoration called upon an impressive list of prominent figures: Louis Barillet for the stain glass windows, Pierre Chareau, Eileen Gray, Djo-Bourgeois, and Francis Jourdain for the furniture, Gabriel Guévrékian for the cubist garden, and Mondrian, Henri Laurens, Jacques Lipchitz, Constantin Brancusi, and Alberto Giacometti for the art works.
