after a revamp, i really wasn’t expecting so many amazing people to follow me once again but it happened and i’ve managed to reach 400+ followers! this really isn’t much but this is just my way to give a little shout out to some amazing people that i’ve gotten the chance to rp with, chat with, or just lurk at on the dash but i’m lucky enough to call them followers so this is me sending out some love! i know i’ve left some people off and i apologize for that! here’s to 400 followers and all the love to you guys for making this blog what it is!
I’ve fallen deep into bnha and wow… the I Am… series by @aoimikans and @swiftwidget is one of my favourite AUs of all time. If you haven’t read it you really should because the entire thing is absolutely amazing!! I just had to try drawing their AU’s version of Toshinori (who is an absolute sweetheart and deserves a nap. let this poor man rest)
(This is the least exciting looking celebratory drawing ever but 600 came up so fast that I didn’t have something actually good prepared. So… we get Flowey boi and a simple background.)
I have been super useless these past two weeks and still 100 more people found their ways here and wanted to stay.
I find that extremely strange but also very flattering.
I was shocked when I hit 500, and I didn’t expect my follower count to go up ANOTHER 100. But it did… and I’m in even greater shock right now.
I don’t think I’ve done a single useful thing besides post pages and do a silly outfit challenge through these two weeks. Yet you all came.
So… a big thanks to all 600 (602 now actually) of you!! I’m always very happy to see that someone has come to stay in the dumpster and see all the garbage I toss in here every day. Thanks for all the notes, reblogs, funny and sweet comments, asks, and follows!!
I’ll see you all later with the weirdness you came here for!
Here’s to many more!!✨
You didn’t notice anything at first. Initially, you had just thought that he was stressed or tired due to all of his hard work and long days at the studio. You didn’t want to think too much into it. It took you a while, but finally saw how different he had become. He wasn’t the same person you fell for a few short months ago. He was colder, more distant than ever. You’d hoped that it was just a phase he was going through and that he would be back to normal in no time. However as the weeks came and went and those weeks turned into months, you realized that you were wrong, that Harry had become a completely different person.
It was hard to pinpoint the exact moment where everything had changed. It wasn’t that one day he woke up and a switch was flipped, making him turn into someone who was closed off and acted bitter towards you when he was usually so kindhearted and loving. No, it was nothing like that. Rather, it was the build up- the subtle changes that were exactly that, differences that were too small to notice. And when you finally realized he wasn’t the same, all you could do was make excuses for him, for the sake of your relationship.
He slowly stopped writing sweet notes to you before he left for the studio in the early hours of the morning. Which you concluded to be him being excited to get back to work, rushing out of your house as quickly as possible to get back to writing. Then, the usual texts and calls throughout the day became less frequent until they stopped altogether. This you put down as him being busy. You two began to bicker and fight a lot more than you used to, which you put down as you going through the “bumpy stage” of the relationship. Despite this, after a while, you had a hard time coming with reasons as to why your relationship with Harry was going down the drain, and it was even more difficult to try to salvage it.
Man, I haven’t drawn *realistic* looking eyes in forever!! Like, where does the highlight even go?? I mean normally I would just give Nick and Judy plain circles for eyes and maybe shade them in, but with the project I’m working on rn their eyes kinda have to be pretty distinct and IT’S SO HARRRD
DNA is important. We all know that, and it is heavily featured as evidence is modern crime investigation. So we thought we should get around to giving a bit of a primer on basic DNA structure, and the reason why DNA is considered a building block of life.
DNA stands for Deoxyribonucleic acid, it is a molecule that
carries genetic instructions for all known living things. It is made up of a
sugar (deoxyribose), a phosphate group, and one of the four nucleotide bases.
4 nucleotide bases:
Purines: adenine (A), guanine (G)
Pyrimidines: thymine (T), cytosine (C )
It is structured as a double helix (2 strands) running
antiparallel to each other (running from the 5’ end to the 3’ end), with the
bases pairing up with each other as A-T/C-G using hydrogen bonding.
(picture from Wikipedia)
The structures can get a little bit more complex. DNA can be
double-stranded (dsDNA) or denature to single-stranded (ssDNA), and it can be
relaxed or supercoiled. DNA has a lot of mechanism to ensure that it is
replicated correctly, and passed on to the future progeny.
The Central Dogma of Biology
DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) codes RNA (ribonucleic acid) which
codes to proteins, through the process of replication, transcription,
In the nucleus, DNA is replicated from the template strand. Incidentally, the replication process is also important for passing on genetic material to future progeny.
It is then transcribed to RNA strand (technically a messenger RNA/mRNA) which
can leave the nucleus. During this phase, thymine (T) is replaced by uracil
(U). During translation, three RNA bases = one codon. And each codon codes for
a different amino acid. The amino acids are stringed together, and depending on
the folding and interactions with other amino acid chains, can become different
proteins with distinct functions.
