i cried when i was making this

the crows as things i've done at school
  • kaz: sat in class, in full view of the teacher, doing the homework that should have been done when it was assigned a week ago, and somehow not getting any late points taken off
  • inej: spent like 20 minutes in the bathroom playing on my phone and my teacher never said anything?? i was gone for a really long time and nobody noticed
  • nina: exclaimed that i was "full on gay" right as my class quieted down and the teacher walked in behind me
  • matthias: got through an entire semester of health class without talking to anyone or making a single friend
  • jesper: laughed until i cried because i remembered that there was a woman named was "Janet McNutt"
  • wylan: got too enthusiastic about a project and explained the intricate details of a specific volcanic eruption on an icelandic island to my class for over ten minutes
  • kuwei: said that i didn't want to donate blood because "it's my blood. i made it and nobody else can have it but me"

anonymous asked:

I was wondering if all chickens carried salmonella? Cause I kiss and cuddle my chicks all the time(and don't really plan on stopping...) and I fear that even if I keep up my strict handwashing and brooder cleaning regime that I may somehow get sick. I this possible/likely?

I snuggle and kiss my chickies and nuzzle them when they sit under my chin, I have my whole life. Just make sure you don’t get any saliva on your bird, especially if you’ve got one like my bab Parsley who attempts to shove his head in your mouth, it could be dangerous for the bird because of gram negative bacteria. Baby chicks really benefit from snuggles, they need a parent figure that they can bond to and comfort them. Y'know how when a human baby cries you’re not supposed to ignore them? The same applies to baby birds, they cry for a reason and they need someone to tell them that they’re safe.

If birds do have salmonella, or any illness, you’ll want to limit contact with them to avoid passing on germs to your flock or yourself. My Pet Chicken says:

“While you won’t be able to make a firm diagnosis of Salmonella on your own, it will be easy for you to see that your hens are sick. Chickens sick with salmonella will be weak, lethargic, have purplish combs and wattles, a decreased appetite and increased thirst. Plus you will see distinct white, sulfur yellow or green diarrhea. In some cases, joints might be swollen and blindness might occur from swelling in the eyes. If your birds were laying, production will be drastically reduced. But these symptoms can also indicate other illnesses, so you’ll have to consult a vet to get a firm diagnosis.”

It’s obvious when birds have salmonella. I believe it was salmonella that @ramseyringnecks just dealt with, it’s a pretty awful disease for the birds and you should be more concerned about them getting it than yourself so long as you aren’t touching the bird’s poop then touching your mouth. Also you shouldn’t eat an infected bird’s eggs, but that applies to any illness.

28, 37, 41, 43 and 81 for sanyo.. JK obviously lmao. they're for gianni, he's less of a mess but it would be interesting to see his answers to those :p

OMG i love that you asked these for baby g but i was also scrolling through them like :[ lmfao omg if u were really asking these about santi most of these would be like self explanatory

28. Are they happy where they are currently?

YES he’s in love with his life and each day only makes him more and more excited for what’s to come ;-;

37. When was the last time they cried?

oh no :{ noooooooo this was one of the one i frowned at :{{{ honestly gianni is probably one of those guys who struggles with crying but knows it’s good to let it out instead of holding it and preserving that sexyhot toxic masculinity. with that being said thooooo i still feel like he probably doesn’t cry frequently just because the urge doesn’t hit him all that often. tbh most of his tears are probably shed over his writing because he probably gets way too into it like i do

41. Do they struggle with any mental health issues?

he has ADHD and it was veryyyy prominent in his youth. it was kinda the reason he couldn’t make/keep a lot of friends :{ he’s calmed down a lot and learned to handle it better but his personality is still very fervent, passionate and easily excitable, and often he can’t concentrate on one single task, instead dividing his attention to many things simultaneously, leading to lots of unfinished projects. (that’s more behavioral than mental but it still fits)

43. Why might someone dislike them?

UM WHO WOULD EVER DISLIKE GIANNI HE’S PERFECT…this one also made me frown but it was more like >:0 okay no i could actually see someone disliking him because he’s a lil bit of a know-it-all, but then they’d take the time to talk to him and fall in love with him probably

81. Do they try to hide their emotions? Are they good at it?

he spends a lot of time in introspection, almost to the point where he’s too acutely aware of his emotions and they start feeling technical to him. he often has to find a balance between observing himself and his nature and actually feeling…sometimes he has to pause and remind himself to just be in the moment rather than reflect on everything as it’s happening. he’s very concerned with experiencing the full range of emotions rather than just focusing on being happy. constant happiness is desensitizing to him.

Another humans are weird/space orcs idea that came to me while trying to drink water upside down:

Humans are apex predators. We’re unbreakable and relentless and legion and lethal. Nothing gets to us- except us.

It’s the stupidest little things that can stop up a human.

Many aliens have theorized about this. Perhaps with no natural enemies, the species tried to threaten them with themselves in a desperate search for some kind of challenge. Maybe it’s cosmic karma for being nigh unstoppable. Maybe they had transcended so much that the nuances of life were tiny and incomprehensible to them. Maybe it’s natural selection trying to thin the herd.

Whichever the cause, it’s a strange combination of disturbing and amusing to see a human be defeated by itself. It’s a little alarming to see the most resilient and powerful species in the universe be completely shut down with things that pale in comparison to their normal challenges.

Seeing a human function almost completely fully with several broken bones… but absolutely crippled and reduced to using one arm when faced with a large hangnail.

My dad broke his leg in a snowmobile accident in such a way that the bone was sticking out of his leg. He crawled a half mile in the snow to the nearest house to ask for help. But when he stubs his toe on the coffee table every few weeks, it’ll bring him to his knees.

I recently got a double conch piercing done- two massive needles shoved through the thickest cartilage in my ear, one right after the other. I’ve got 5 other piercings. None, not even the conch, hurt as much as getting a single hair yanked out of my head.

I see people eat some of the world’s hottest foods all laced with capsaicin which can kill things, and drink alcohol that’s literally poisonous, and break pen cases with their teeth. But a too cold slush drink? Unable to talk or move, head between the knees, for about two minutes, because brain freeze. Or, better yet, sometimes we literally choke on spit. Nearly asphyxiate. Because we regularly ‘swallow down the wrong hole’. 

Alien: Why did you say, last month, that your broken ribs and arm and massive blood loss was ‘fine’, but when you got a paper cut today, you cried for ten minutes and now still refuse to unwrap your wound? It is tiny in comparison to some things that you’ve faced without hesitation.

Human: Honestly it’s really stupid and I don’t really know, but I will swear up and down and until the day I die, a broken bone hurts way less than a paper cut.

Alien: But… no. It’s not worse. It… that doesn’t make sense.

Human: I know, right? But it’s true.

A few more thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (yeah, I have a lot of them): while I totally get the rush of “galaxy’s best dad!/Yondu did nothing wrong in his life!” posts and fanart (I do! honestly! Michael Rooker did an amazing job) that’s just… not the story I think the movie is telling, or the story I really want it to be telling. James Gunn is at it too, what with him basically saying “Well, Peter wasn’t a great son either!” in that Q&A he did…

…Yondu was an absolutely abusive parent, yeah? He loved Peter a lot in his own equally-abused way, but he was. Peter even says it, when Yondu demands a prize for basic decency in the first movie “Normal people don’t even think about eating anybody else, let alone that person having to be grateful for it!” He doesn’t know Yondu was never planning to seriously hurt him, he just knows that he pretty much grew up under the constant threat of violence (no matter how ordinary that apparently seems to be for Ravagers.) There were presumably some nice moments every now and again, since Peter does have a clear, maybe rather begrudging affection for him, but yeah, the point: at the beginning of the Guardians films Yondu’s not even deserving of a World’s Okayest Dad mug, let alone a World’s Greatest Dad one.

But that’s why his storyline in GOTG2 is so satisfying, and hits all the tropes I love in a redemption arc, because it’s entirely about Yondu realising just how utterly, utterly he fucked up (with both Peter and the other kids he unwittingly delivered to their deaths) and setting out to try and make up for it, even if that means dying basically unmourned (as Stakar told him) and unloved. When he’s with the others on Ego’s planet, it’s obvious from his words to Rocket that he doesn’t intend to leave it at all, but rather stay and try to regain some remnants of his honour by helping to kill the thing that killed his adopted son’s siblings.

And I love the “[Ego] may have been your father but he wasn’t your daddy” line, I think everyone does, but those would have been terribly disappointing and selfish last words. I don’t think Yondu was talking about himself, it’s just a simple affirmation to make Peter feel better, what matters is the apology he makes afterwards. “I’m sorry I didn’t do none of it right, I was lucky you were my boy.” Not a plea for forgiveness, just a flat-out statement really: Peter deserved better than him. All he can do is die to keep Peter alive and hold his face when he cries and hope that that’s enough.

…..And that’s just, such a much more interesting story than “he was secretly good all along.”

✨ 🌸 mildliner inspired study playlists🌸 ✨

blue pack (cool)

  • mostly instrumental music for improved concentration
  • best for “chill” study sessions i.e. re-reading lessons, rewriting notes, making annotations, flashcards etc
  • of cool breeze floating gently into the room, causing the edges of curtains to flutter. you look up from your notebook and notice how quiet the world is, how clean your desk is. books are neatly stacked in a corner; the vase has fresh daisies in it. you can hear your soft breathing in the silence.
  • everything is so calm, and yet you’re crying.

pink pack (neon)

  • for when you have something due at 7am and it’s already 4am but you’re just 50% done RIP
  • no really why did you procrastinate???!
  • YA SO TIRED BUT YA GOTTA GET THAT A
  • gotta have some power POP instead of power NAP
  • “I swear I will never do this again!!!”

yellow (warm)

  • nothing really matters in life anymore; you’re just numb™
  • but you still have to study because people expect so much of you; you expect so much of you
  • this is sitting in a room feeling tired and lonely, pale sunset light surrounding you. this is thinking you’re too old for your body; that everything good has already happened.
  • this is flipping absentmindedly through textbook pages, re-reading every sentence twice because your mind is elsewhere.
  • and maybe this is about remembering something to live for, even if it’s that one friend, that one tv show
I needed to talk about this

so a lot of you might know me from this post here and this post is gonna touch on one of the points I made there

as a lot of you probably know by now, youngjae was hospitalized before the busan fansign and it has been announced that he is not participating in their stage; it was also said that depending on his situation, he might not perform at upcoming schedules as well.

some people believe that youngjae has a herniated disc like jaebum and that he’s been dealing with it for a while and if that doesn’t break your heart I don’t know what will

as a youngjae stan, I am heartbroken right now.

youngjae has always performed, despite being sick or tired; there’s video of him almost passing out from exhaustion during just right, a video of him getting hit by a firework at a fansign in the Philippines, and had reportedly vomited right before performing in China.

and you know what? he did all of these performances with a smile on his face

even after he was hospitalized, he came back to the fansign and reassured the fans that he was fine, and he smiled and played with the fans the entire time

the only time youngjae has ever sat out of a performance was during Fly in Dallas when he was hospitalized in Dallas because he got really sick

but you know what really pained me? he was so apologetic that he didn’t perform; he repeatedly said, “I should’ve performed, I could’ve done it”

this boy, despite being sick and in pain, wanted to perform to make all of us happy, because to him, we are more important than his health

so please, everyone, please give your support and prayers to youngjae right now; he’s probably beating himself up for not being able to promote, especially since he’s the main vocal and this is a very important time for got7

please, as an ahgase, please pray that he’s okay and that he will get better and that got7 will be able to take a break soon so they can all rest; they all need a break, and I think that youngjae’s health right now proves that 

To the woman who loves her next:

She is stubborn, but be patient, she will open up when she’s ready and when she does oh god, please don’t take advantage of that. She’s broken, she’ll need you to sleep with her on the phone, she’ll need you to sit in silence with her while she cries, so I beg you please just do that. Sometimes she won’t talk about it, but you’ll know, you’ll learn the cry, you’ll learn her silence, you will know why. When she tells you to fuck off, hold her tighter, when she hangs up on you, call her back, when she gets angry, don’t fight back, she’s hurting, hold her like so tight, make her feel the kind of safe she says she doesn’t need but she does, I promise you that. She’ll say she’s fine with tears running down her face while trying to comfort you, while she’s wiping your tears, but please wipe hers as well, I beg you. She’ll be strong for you, she’ll bottle up her feelings because she cares more about yours but always assure her it’s okay to cry, that it’s okay to talk. That you will listen to her. She’ll love you with her whole heart, don’t take advantage of her, love her whole heartedly, love her with every ounce of love you have to give, god knows she needs it. Wrap her up in your arms and protect her heart like nothing else because oh god, she’ll protect yours. She’ll stand up for you, she get angry, she’ll fight your battles for you and she’ll get quiet when she’s pissed off but she’ll love you like no one else ever has, so take care of her, she’s the woman you won’t ever want to let go, so please don’t, please don’t do what I did, please hold her hand always. She’s one of a kind and oh god don’t you dare let her go.

—  What I wish I learned. Take care of her.
