Villagers are knitting jumpers for elephants to protect them from near-freezing temperatures
Elephants in India are sporting colourful woollen jumpers after villagers knitted the super-size garments to protect the animals from near-freezing temperatures. Women in a village near the Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Centre in the northern city of Mathura reportedly began producing the colourful, pyjama-like garments after staff at the centre warned temperatures were approaching sub-zero at night.

Happy Tim/Kon things if you need to be happy right now:

-Kon leaves out vitamins for Tim every morning by his coffee just in case he hasn’t been eating properly again or isn’t getting enough sun.

-Tim always brings home cookies from lunch meetings he’s saved for Kon because he knows Kon loves the black and white cookies from the deli they always order from.

-On lazy weekend mornings they like to eat breakfast on the balcony with Kon soaking up the early sunshine and Tim propping his feet up in Kon’s lap while he reads the paper.

-Kon says ‘I love you’ out loud every chance he gets just to make sure Tim hears him and knows, plus it always manages to make Tim smile when they’re out in public.

-During the fall in Smallville they run through corn mazes together and eat fried oreos at the county fair and Kon always wins Tim the biggest teddy bear they have. And yes, Tim keeps them all. He has a special closet for them and rotates them out to sit in the corner of their bedroom bi-monthly.

-Tim has yet to get tired of feeling how warm Kon is whenever they kiss or hug each other. He washes away any chill from his body and it reminds him of how alive they both are, how lucky, and it really does feel exactly like coming home.

i’m still growing.

sure, maybe yesterday i had a little too much to drink and i took a look at my life and felt like athena was whispering, “oh, you poor child. what have you done?”

maybe i have some cuts and scrapes that still haven’t healed, maybe my heart is still bruised and so i cringe when i place it into your waiting palms. maybe i’m breathing a little ragged because i swallowed all the mirrors in my house so i wouldn’t stare at my reflection and try to rip my skin from its bones anymore.

i have a crooked grin but smiles aren’t meant for perfection. my knuckles are bloody and raw from attacking the concrete cage i have built around myself, but today, i broke a hole and i saw daylight for the first time. and guess what?

i’m still growing.

—  twenty doesn’t meant twice as sad // (h.q.)

if ur sad please think about cosette inviting eponine and her siblings over for dinner because her and ponine have been dating for a few months and ep talks about gavroche and azelma really fondly. and cosette wants her girlfriend to know how much she cares about her and her life. and ep is super nervous but doesn’t let it show and cosette burns the fancy dinner she made so they just order pizza instead, and the four of them watch trashy movies and cosette and eponine cuddle whilst gavroche and azelma look disgusted but are secretly sooo happy for their big sister. 

Happy Jaime/Bart things if you need to be happy right now:

-Jaime buys Bart a ton of fidget jewelry for holidays to help him focus, even if they break easily with him.

-They stay up late talking a lot, Jaime about being in space and Bart about being in the speed force. How they both love and hate it. They hold on to each other while falling asleep those nights.

-Bart brings Jaime gifts from around the world a lot, and not just souvenir things, but jars of air from mount everest or salt from the dead sea, feathers from penguins in antarctica. Jaime displays them all on a shelf in the living room.

-Jaime will never grow tired of the fact that Bart learned Spanish for him, it’s even better when Bart gets into the trashy soap operas and starts yelling at the tv frantically in Spanish.

-Somehow Bart manages to persuade Jaime into getting a dog together. It’s the biggest, furriest, mop of a dog Jaime’s ever seen and it eats about a bag of food every week. It’s worth it to come home to the dog flopped on top of Bart acting like a lap dog and Bart just being so happy because of it.

-Even if there are momemts of doubt, Bart knows he made all the right choices because everyday he gets to wake up to tell Jaime ‘I love you’ and kiss him while the sun’s still coming up and that can’t be a mistake.
