invigorating!

Water. The floating body in a state of semi-levitation. Lungs expand in deep breaths of salty air. This is where I find you.
   
Water. Parched lips licked by wetted tongue. Coolness lingers in the back of throat. From esophagus to stomach, a wholesome sensation. Invigorating water. This is where I find you.
   
Floral scented shampoo; soap, essence of passion fruit, seeping down feminine pulchritude, taking with it worries of the day. Wet hair. Closed eyes and a smile; face raised up towards gushing streams of water. Rejuvenating water. This is where I find you.
   
Garden sprinkler created rainbows exist only for a moment, but the memories of jumping around them with my first dog will last a lifetime. Bare feet in the soggy grass. Muddy toes. Daddy chases me with a hose; before returning inside there is water. Rinsing water. This is where I find you.
   
Rarely in my life have I seen the whitest of beaches, even rarer have I witnessed the sight of an ocean so blue. My eyes gaze into infinity, and I ponder. Water. Infinite water. This is where I find you.

I believe it was you who uploaded the full audio of the clipping. Rough Trade concert to SoundCloud? (If you didn't, my apologies) but I've literally been listening to it for the past couple hours and having nostalgic flashbacks😂😂 I miss that concert so much, it was literally perfect. Thank you for uploading it! (If it was you😅 if it wasn't sorry for the confusion!)

It was me! And you’re very welcome. I tend to record the shows I go to and I thought perhaps others might like to listen as well. Live audios may not be as good as the professional recordings, but the energy is just so vastly different; I love listening to Wriggle live, it’s so damn invigorating.

Takin’ an L

Stark silence from a legend.

Unnerving as it was, Guzma did not allow it to get to him.

As Pokemon were knocked out, he perceived on.

And as he saw the possibilities of winning fade farther and farther into the distance—

…It did not feel real. But not in the sense of a trainer’s soul facing crushing defeat; rather, it was surreal to even be there in the first place.

Guzma had grown up watching the tournaments held in faraway regions as a child, eyes glued to the television as the giants of Kanto and Johto rumbled. Nothing like that was readily available in Alola. Before the bug type specialist aspired to be a trial captain, his greatest dream was to be good enough to participate in one of those huge tournaments, to step out onto a stadium and hear the crowd cheer his name as he smacked down his opponents.

Here he was.

He made it.

He made it to round two.

It was invigorating. He felt more alive than he had in years.

Even though he was losing, he was in Unova, living his childhood dream

That was better than he had ever thought he would be able to accomplish. Years of growing up being told that his choices in Pokemon were pathetic, stupid, weak—but here he was, standing against greatest trainer to have ever come out of Kanto. A living legend. Someone that Guzma had looked up to and wished to be great as when he was still in a cradle of innocence.

“CHAMPION RED ADVANCES TO THE SEMI-FINALS!”

The buzzer goes off, showing Red move forward on the bracket as Guzma drops out, right next to Ingo, the opponent he had battled in order to advance on and fight Red. And though the people who showed up to support him rush to the Calavera’s side in anticipation of a broken spirit—it was the opposite.

[ ☠ ] — “…That was so fuckin’ awesome…” Guzma grins, fists balling as he exhales sharply in excitement.

“I battled Red.”


‘Boss ! ! ! I saw ya out there ! ! ! What was it like?!?’

‘Ya did great boss man, good shit reppin’ SKULL like that’

‘What’re you gonna do now though?!’

Guzma snickers as he listens to his grunts talk to him; a small group had joined together to share their funds in order to travel to Unova and watch the tournament, to see a glimpse of their boss’s battling. Stretching his arms out, pats the Ultra Ball on his waist, pulling it off of his belt.

Ya did great, buddy… Rest up now— …—Oh shit, righ’!” The gangster looks over.

“Guess I’m stickin’ around as a spectator! Ain’t gonna miss this for the life’a me! Catch y’all later.”

With that, the walks away, still holding Golisopod’s ball close to him.

“…They cheered for us, didn’t they? Twice actually.Yesterday an’ t’day.

                                  Never thought people’d be rootin’ for us.”

Guzma would be sure to treat his entire team to celebration, to congratulate them on participating in their first REAL tournament.

“—Y’know what I learned?” He talks out loud, stuffing his hands in his pockets as he looks up at the skyscrapers stretching upwards into the clouds.

“… I’m gonna get better than I already am…

I can’t wait t’get home an’ tell everyone… ! ! ! !

Hey Malian! What do souls taste Iike?

“An interesting question. The average human soul, with your average amount of human sin and corruption, tastes like slightly charred meat. It’s an invigorating flavor… But the best are the souls that have been touched by magic. They taste like cotton candy… though witches and wizards are just not as easy to get a soul out of, unfortunately.”

The White House has one last request from you: they’re collecting everyone’s “Obama moment” when they felt inspired and invigorated by the President

The moving tribute doesn’t just feature celebrities, but also regular Americans talking about their favorite Obama moments from the eight years he was in office. As you already may have guessed, you’re going to need the tissues for this one.

Indoor plants for the space-conscious witch

Let’s face it, some of us witches just don’t have the time/space for having a fully flourishing witchy garden, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t utilise the full benefits of nature’s plants in our own spaces! Here is a list of house friendly plants that can enhance your personal space in various ways:

Geranium: These plants can provide luck and good fortune in various different ways, depending on the colour of your flower. Choose red geraniums for vitality and invigoration, pink for love, or white for fertility.

Rose: These flowers are notorious for their properties of love and friendship, and it is possible to grow miniature roses inside, or perhaps choose another Venus-ruled plant such as the maidenhair fern for the same benefits.

Impatiens: This plant, ruled by Mercury and often known as ‘busy lizzie’, does exactly what you would think it would; encourages movement and travel in your life.

Aspidistra: Ruled by Saturn, this plant encourages tranquility and homeliness, calming fears and dispelling nightmares. Another plant which achieves the same nightmare-warding effects is the cyclamen, often used throughout history to protect against evil spirits.

Thistle: A vase of thistles is thought to restore strength and vitality to those who are feeling down or depressed and have been used to ward off thieves.

Yellow plants: Arrange two yellow or orange plants, full of the Sun’s vibrant energy in front of two mirrors so they reflect the energy into your room, dispelling evil and encouraging good. This simple flower magic can be performed with any planetary influences depending on your intention.

Ahhhh The Subtle Glow of Crease Lighting

Lighting heals, soothes, invigorates and comforts. The right lighting literally means the difference between well-being and simply being. Crease lighting is a integrated lighting system with which a perfect fusion of subtle illuminiation, architecture and design is achieved. Allowing “lines” of light on walls and ceilings, crease ligting offers a beautiful and minimal visual effect in the architectural space.

I suppose we both have a healthy dose of the competitive spirit… Some people can’t be around that energy. I, in turn, find it invigorating, as I’m sure your exes did as well. Lydia never complained. I thought you knew Lydia for a millisecond before your arranged marriage.

CHENLE’S LAUGH IS THE BRIGHTEST MOST UPLIFTING ENERGISING & INVIGORATING LAUGH IVE EVER HEARD

Pet Health and Protection Spell Bottle

I got the inspiration to do this from @the-tesserae and her post here

My puppy has been sick for the last few days (he is going to the vet) and I wanted to do something myself to help him recover. I’ve been so heartbroken by the whole ordeal and I just wanted to feel a little less helpless in this situation. 

The materials I used are:

  • My pets hair (harvested from his hairbrush) - used to connect the bottle directly to him
  • Pink Himalayan salt - purification, cleanse the aura, deflect negativity, balance emotions, protection, and healing
  • Lavender buds - happiness, healing, love, protection, harmony, virility, calmness
  • Chamomile (dried herb) - cleanses and invigorates the throat, peace, love, tranquility, purification, wards unwanted energy
  • Peridot shards - balances the endocrine system, supports digestive system, removes negative energy
  • Amethyst shards - assists physical ailments, healing, calmness
  • White sage - cleanse negative energy, protection, wards against unwanted energy

My Jared op from Torcon 2016. If I could bottle up the happiness I felt in this moment…

Fifth Harmony's Normani Kordei Praised as 'Superstar' on 'Dancing with the Stars'

Fresh off an 11-hour flight from Japan, Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei swooped onto the Dancing with the Stars dance floor for an invigorating cha-cha routine with partner Val Chmerkovskiy on Monday night’s episode (March 27).

Shimmering in gold, Kordei and Chmerkovskiy scored 32 points out of 40 for the routine set to Sigala’s “Give Me Your Love.”

Even though Chmerkovskiy said that learning new routines while traveling put the pair under “a lot of pressure,” neither showed signs of jet lag as Kordei impressed with a well-placed kick.

Judge Julianne Hough was so impressed, she said she “wants to dance” with Kordei, and added “you’re amazing.”

“I guess the key to looking amazing is flying to Japan,” Hough said.

Carrie Ann Inaba praised the duo, particularly Kordei, who she called a “superstar,” “dazzling,” and “sexy.”  "That was truly dancing with a star,“ she said. "Brilliant.”

Len Goodman complimented the duo for dancing a full routine and not taking the easy way out, awarding them his first “8” score of the season. “I thought it was terrific,” he said.  Bruno Tonioli called it “jet set…I’m going to fly with you, honey.”

Harmonizers need to hit the phones to vote for Kordei, who is heading back to the airport for another show with Fifth Harmony in China. To vote, dial: 1 (800) 868-3410
