literally one of my favorite pictures

4

Tagged by the always wonderful @amaxing-daes for the “favorite bias, favorite picture(s…)”, thank you <3

So of course I had to pick my ultimate, my all-time fave, the one who brings me both pain and joy and reminds me that beauty still exists in the world. Let’s give an analysis of all of these masterpieces, shall we?

1. Hoooollly fukkkk Yixing. This picture literally tried to kill me the other night. I can’t ??? understand ??? how someone can look like a boss and a king at the same time ??? honestly @ science side of tumblr, help me figure this one out

2. Okay now this one is just straight up adorable, lbr. This episode was a classic and not to mention that this pose is just adorable. (Plus, one of my students in China last summer used to sit like this all the time and I thought it was the cutest thing on the planet.) 

3. Eyyyyyyeeeeessss. He’s literally serving us these puppy dog looks and how can anyone resist this face?? His eyes are the softest shade of brown and they deserve their own fan club.

4. This photoshoot saved my life tbh. His face looks like Aphrodite carved him from only the finest marble from the peak of Mr. Olympus, that’s just how much of a work of art this man really is.

I tag: @melonhimchan, @thekimcouple, @iluvpcy, @kaibility, @xiuminel, @xiumallow@moonjjongie, @angel-in-slow-motion, @vitaminhoshi, @zyxng10, @purplemonkeysareawesome, @chanyeolcide, and anyone else who’d like to do it~!

I saw this picture of one of my favorite humans, Hank Green, floating around and felt like I had to add these basic examples.

Yes, there are extremely harmful chemicals/molecules out there, but you can’t be afraid of all chemicals because literally everything is made of chemicals - from the air to your full body. Your body functions because it makes chemicals and reacts with other chemicals. Your senses are results of chemical reactions. Your emotions are chemicals, your food and nutrition are chemicals, your whole life is chemicals. Whether it’s a solid, liquid, or a gas. Chemicals.

There’s a big reason why you have to take a lot of chemistry when you study biology…

Life IS chemistry.

honestly I think my favorite thing about Jasper is that she’s such a fucking drama hoe

So far she has:

-gotten a cape specially made for the sole purpose of wanting to look dramatic and fabulous in front of her enemies.

- put on eyeliner for a fight.

-literally paused what she was doing just so “Rose” could take a menacing picture of her, before disappearing into the unknown.

- made an exit walking backwards into the ocean, and paused to say a one liner before sinking down completely when it was so totally unnecessary of her to do so.

If/ when Jasper gets redeemed all I’m saying is peridot is gonna have good run for her money in terms of the biggest dork in the group

The fics listed below can be old or fairly new, so this has no timeline. Neither an order of preference. It’s just a bunch of stories I loved and I’d like to share with you.


Steve Rogers

  • Hold on For Me by @poorcap - It broke my heart and then fixed it, but it was so damn good, guys.
  • Shape of You by @gruzovoy-vagon - I literally felt tingles in my lady parts, it’s like Steve was really there. Hot, hot, hot! Please, listen to the song for maximum effect!

  • Satisfied by @rookbcdhi - Discovered it on AO3 and finally found it on Tumblr after four months! Read and you’ll probably understand why I didn’t give up.

So you know how in the comics Cisco can’t be properly photographed because of his powers? I can’t stop thinking about how that would play out on the show. Like one day years from now Cisco and Cindy are married and living together and their place is just filled with out of focus pictures of the two of them. And they have Barry and Iris over and Cisco picks up a frame to show off and he’s like “oh man this is probably my favorite picture of us” and Barry is like “um…its literally the same blurry mess as every other photo” and Cynthia comes in like “nah. this ones from our trip to hawaii” and she and Cisco are both smiling down at it like “good times good times” and Barry looks over at Iris all confused and she just shrugs back at him

Modern Christine forces Erik to let her use the Snapchat filters on him.

Her phone is literally filled with goofy pictures of Erik looking annoyed while a ridiculous filter adds cat ears or glasses to his face.

Christine’s favorite Snapchat filter on him is the dog one, because even when he’s super angry he still looks hilarious with it.

Erik won’t admit it but he’s very fond of the flower crown filter, it smoothes out his more gruesome features a bit.

recently my own mental health has been kicking my ass pretty bad, and I thought I would make a post about the different techniques I use to try and get myself back up off the ground.

1) just start.
the hardest part about studying when your mental health is acting up is just finding the energy to start. get yourself into a place that you feel comfy and safe, whether it’s a library or a special corner or your room and just try to bite the bullet. I know this is easier said than done, but I promise this is probably the biggest hurdle you need to leap. just do what you need to do.

2) find your own safe space for studying
for me, it’s very hard to study in my room/when i’m home because i’m tempted to take naps or paint or play music or do something else. if I know I have lots of work to do, i usually go straight to my local coffee shop right after school so i’m not tempted to slow down when i get home. that way, i’m in a place that doesn’t allow me to get majorly distracted AND i can get myself some food or coffee to keep me motivated. if you need absolute silence or can’t study with lots of movement around, a library is your best option; however, wherever you feel best is a good bet.

3) build yourself (or find) a playlist
certain music can really help me get out of a bad mindset and into one that allows me to study easily. If you have certain songs you listen to to make yourself feel better, throw those in with some relaxing piano. My personal favorite is listening to the OST’s of my childhood video games and Studio Ghibli soundtracks. Spotify also has a few playlists for studying in whatever genre you’re looking for.

4) stay hydrated
i’m sorry i know this is on literally every masterpost for mental health but it’s for a good reason. I’m not expecting you to slam 70 oz of water every day and be a picture perfect studyblr with a water tracker app on their phone. if you notice yourself feeling shitty or sluggish, even a sip of something (even if it’s not water if it isn’t available) will help in the long run. 

5) eat something. anything
the same goes for food: i’m going to be real with you and tell you that a very small percentage of people actually eat avocado toast or fruity granola shit in the morning. I don’t even eat breakfast myself, but i structure my day so that i’m constantly snacking throughout the day. even if all you can manage is some crackers, it’s a good start. 

6) set up structured breaks
i use the app Tide (it’s a pomodoro timer) and i set up studying as 25 minutes of work with a 5 minute break in between. it’s completely free (score) and you can customize both the work length times and break times. it also offers different white noise options like “ocean” and “forest” if a music playlist isn’t for you. if all you can put in is 50 minutes of work with 20 minute breaks in between, at least it’s something you didn’t have done before.

7) prioritize
if you’re running low on energy, find the one or two things you NEED to have done. tomorrow is a new day, and it’s possible you may be felling better. for me, I have both BPD and depression, so my mood and energy swing back and forth day by day. if I feel terrible one night, sometimes the next night I feel like I can fight the world. obviously i’m not sure what situation you’re in, but don’t push yourself to finish things that aren’t immediately due if you really don’t feel good. 

i hope some of these help! if you know of anything that helps you study with your mental illness, shoot me a message and I can add it here!

#ThankYouBones Week

Day 9: 4 Hodgela scenes that made you cry

I think perhaps my favorite thing about this couple is that they were completely unplanned at the start of the series. TJ and Michaela had such chemistry during their scenes together in season 1, that the producers and writers had no choice but to take notice. It wasn’t always smooth sailing for these two. And we even had to endure a broken up Hodgela for a couple years. It could have been painful, but I think they both grew into the people they needed to be in order to finally achieve their happily ever ever. Angela and Hodgins have been a joy to watch evolve and grow more and more in love with each passing season. One of my all-time favorite moments (not pictured) is when Hodgins made it possible for Angela to pursue her dream of living and working in Paris. The plans were set, and they had one foot out the door. But during their last case at the Jeffersonian, Angela witnesses Hodgins’ excitement as he operates a piece of machinery. And he literally tells the machine that he will miss it. The scene cuts to Angela just staring at her husband. And later, she informs him that they have to stay in D.C. Hodgins’ life is at the Jeffersonian. And she cannot take away his dream just to fulfill her own. Even if he would willingly bend the world to make her happy. “And-and I’m okay with it. As long as I’m with you.” Additionally, the paralysis arc was some of TJ and Michaela’s most compelling work to date. Like Booth and Brennan, Hodgins and Angela have proven time and time again that they are solid. Though they nearly crumbled when Hodgins spiraled into a dark and hopeless state after learning that he may never walk again. Angela refused to give up on her husband and the life they share. And she helped him find his way out of the darkness. Now they are thriving once more. And I couldn’t be happier. They deserve the world, and more. Angela is Hodgins’ carburetor for life. 

anonymous asked:

My bf is extremely insecure and we literally (less than an hour ago) got into a fight because I posted a photo of Matty Healy on my if and he got so upset he blocked me there. He says it really hurts his feelings when I post about them (the 1975) or like pictures of them, but they're one of my favorite bands. I don't want to hurt him or upset him an he tells me "do whatever you want, you like them then you like then." But then gets mad whenever i talk, or post about them, or like a picture..

hmm yeah that’s really controlling and weird, don’t let him push you around. Talk to him and tell him that if his insecurities are getting in the way of having a healthy relationship then he’s not ready to be in a relationship because he really isn’t. He needs to figure out his own business and not take that out on you, it’s not fair to you and you shouldn’t put up with that

A Brutal Subtext Behind 2CT

(Disclaimer: I’ve been feeling a bit more bloodthirsty because this arc has felt like a plastic plot line in a tin can. There’s such a lack of character depth/plot movement that I’m going stir crazy. We’ve literally dropped important characters in favor of a two dimensional villain and caricatures of who Ciel and Sebastian used to be. Yana has produced some quality work, complete with subplot tie-ins and *proper* character deconstruction but this arc feels like she isn’t even trying. But, moving on…

One of my favorite explanations of the 2CT theory stems from a post made by @dorkshadows (post here), where instead of having two loving brothers you have a fraternal relationship filled with anger, loathing, and jealousy on our!Ciel’s part. I don’t doubt their childhood had happy moments but I picture their dynamic to be more like Thor and Loki than say, Robb Stark and Jon Snow. Underneath all the affection and time spent together, I have no doubt that our!Ciel secretly despised his brother’s venerated position as the future heir to everything—the family name, company, lands, titles. Think about it, real!Ciel was the firstborn—the heir—and was probably the focus of everyone’s attention. Firstborn males are the most important family members—even more so than the patriarch. (To get an idea of how dismissive the Victorians were of second born sons, Consuelo Vanderbilt, wife to the 9th duke of Marlborough, nicknamed her sons “the heir and the spare.”)

To our!Ciel it must have been ten years of agonized longing—of silently seething and watching his brother get everything he’s ever wanted—that finally bubbled over during their time in captivity. When our!Ciel realized he finally had the chance to steal everything from real!Ciel, our!Ciel willingly sacrificed his brother to the cultists—even though he probably didn’t know a demon would appear as the result. This makes the entire situation all the more menacing—our!Ciel let the cultists take and kill his own brother without knowing a demon might appear. He let them take his twin out of pure, undiluted spite. It’s his way of saying “sure you were the heir to everything, sure you had mother, father, and Aunt Ann’s attention but now you don’t. There’s no one here but me—I’m finally in control and I get to see you perish first.”

It’s almost as if our!Ciel is Richard III—he certainly plays the part well enough. If we substitute real!Ciel for the princes in the tower (Edward V of England and his younger brother, Richard), then we get a dark parallel that’s made even more haunting by the fact that our!Ciel didn’t just end his brother life—he stole it right out from under him. And that relationship is the kind I want to see.

Something dark and sinister, full of vice, retribution, and the desire for revenge on both sides. (Cliched survivor’s guilt? No thanks. I’d take murderer’s guilt any day.*) We know our!Ciel is selfish—heck, he even admits it outright—but I want to see to what extent. How far will he go to protect his ill gotten gains? How many people will he kill/sacrifice/offer up just to achieve his own ends? (And I believe there’s a difference between Ciel burning a mansion full of lobotomized children he didn’t know and a potential confrontation with the twin who once had everything.)

Furthermore, how will real!Ciel react to all this? If he’s been brought back to life by Undertaker, he’s probably filled with betrayal, anger, confusion, and a desperate, unyielding desire to seek revenge—just like our!Ciel.

But this is real!Ciel. The happy, confident, extroverted heir—the one who was always meant to inherit everything. How will those three years—first in death, then in the Undertaker’s workshop, then at the Sphere Music Hall, and now, finally, brought back to life—how did it change him? If real!Ciel had always been the more charming, commanding “natural leader” of the two, then I don’t doubt he’ll use all his gravitas and strength to try and take our!Ciel down. But this lingering question remains—how far will he go? We know our!Ciel always had a survival instinct—something he’s probably honed since childhood (as mentioned by dorkshadows)—but real!Ciel never needed it.

He was the heir—he was going to get everything anyway. He never needed to be sly, duplicitous, cunning, or malicious. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have these traits—there is the very definite possibility that real!Ciel is more Machiavellian than our!Ciel—he just never acted on it. He never needed to. Our!Ciel blindsided real!Ciel by offering him up to the cultists and if real!Ciel’s actually back, then the playing field’s even (with real!Ciel having the dual advantage of surprise and three years of plotting). It’d be a violent, grotesque finale I don’t want to miss.


*To me, our!Ciel is like the thief who’s not the least bit sorry he stole but he’s awfully, awfully sorry he’s going to jail. (And yes, this is a quote from Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With The Wind.)


Note: I know a lot of 2CT theorists are going to hate on this post for being too dark/dramatic/implausible but this is Kuroshitsuji. The manga whose very premise began with a cult torturing and defiling a ten year old boy in order to summon a demon from hell. The story’s bound to get darker as it moves towards the end. And, from what I’ve seen, Yana seems to despise cliches—she does everything in her power to subvert expectations so to put in a cliched “I dost loved my brother, I did!” seems like a pale imitation of shock—the true driving force would be to explore just how dark our!Ciel’s mindset was when he sacrificed his brother and how dark their reunion is going to be. As always, discussion is welcomed but please refrain from using derogatory terms, unsubstantiated arguments, and unnecessary online cruelty. Thank you.

Guys, let me talk to you about my new favorite game.

I recently found out about a free game/app called “Real Whales” and downloading it has been one of the best decisions I ever made.

“I came out of the ocean because you need to download this game.”

In the game, you go out on whale-watching tours and take pictures. That’s it. That’s literally it. You choose the tour you want to go on, and once you’re there, you swipe left or right to look for whales or dolphins to photograph. When you see one, tap once to zoom in on them, tap again to take a picture. 

There’s no music, but if you play the game with the sound on, occasionally you’ll hear the boat captain call out the location of an animal. You’ll also hear whales blowing or slapping the water. 

Or sometimes you’ll hear a colossal crash and realize you just missed a full-body breach.

Only one tour is unlocked at the start, but when you take pictures of cetaceans, you earn points that can be used to unlock the rest. The number of points you get for each shot takes several things into consideration, such as the timing of the shot and the “rarity” of the behavior. The scoring is really generous, too, so you should be able to unlock another tour after only a few outings.

Sometimes the whales are really on the move, so it can be tricky to get the perfect shot lined up before they disappear back into the water, but there’s no need to stress about running out of time. The only limiting factor to your tour is how many pictures you’ve taken; once you snap 12 shots, the tour ends. Which means you can absolutely go on a tour and spend an hour just smiling at the screen and watching whales be whales. 

Yes, that is the voice of experience speaking. I’ve gotten into the habit of going on a whale-watching tour before bed, and it really helps me settle in for the night.

At the end of the tour, you can go through all the photos you took and choose ones to save to your album, which you can then view at any time. (All of the screenshots on this post are some of my best photos.) There’s also a Gallery feature, where you can move around a model of each species you’ve photographed, read some quick facts, and even play a recording of their sounds!

Even on my Galaxy Mini, the graphics are gorgeous and the animations are super-smooth. I can’t even imagine how incredible it would be to play this game on a tablet or a phone with a bigger screen.

In short, this game is amazing. There’s no interrupting ads (just a small bar at the top which is easy enough to ignore), the graphics are awesome, and did I mention that it’s free and has whales? Because it’s free and has whales. 

So what are you waiting for? Give “Real whales” a try! I can’t imagine why you would regret it!
