look at the sheep

Happy Chinese New Year 2016!

It’s the Year of the Monkey!  I used to love reading horoscopes, so I thought I should look at how I fair as a sheep in the year of the monkey.

According to one of the websites, this is a positive year for goats - improvement in all areas of life.  Progress finally!  However, it is said that I should also take care of my health.  Let’s see how much truth is in those words at the end of the year.

CNY’s Eve Dinner.  We have 6 dishes.  According to my mom, the lucky numbers are usually 6, 8, or 9.

CNY dinner

Pig feet

Scallops

Roast pork

After dinner, we said our greetings to our parents in exchange for red envelopes. 

This year, look who else got a “red envelope” too! ;)

Happy Lunar New Year, everyone!

The terms “self-sufficiency” and “off the grid” usually call to mind concrete fallout shelters or underground bunkers, but the efficient interior of this tiny home would not be out of place in a New York penthouse or San Francisco studio.

Austrian firm Wohnwagon has created five of these homes since starting the project in 2013. Using all natural materials, the company creates one-of-a-kind homes on wheels with a focus on sustainability and low environmental impact. Measuring only 269 square feet, each one comes with an expandable portion that gives you an extra 70 square feet when needed.

The exterior is larch wood, known for being durable, waterproof and sustainable. The interior is lined with spruce for a light, airy look. Sheep’s wool is used as insulation to regulate both temperature and humidity. The natural elements are not limited to the construction materials; the design is simple and naturally inspired.

The true beauty of the Wohnwagon comes out when you take it off the grid. Its 31-gallon water tank is refilled using an ingenious graywater system that pumps wastewater through a filtration system located on the roof. The process of cleaning and sanitizing the wastewater takes about 24 hours.

A wood-burning stove and solar panels ensure that hot water is always available, while a bio-toilet disposes of waste separately, turning it into liquid fertilizer for your garden. The rooftop solar panels can provide energy immediately or store small amounts for later use.

An Intro to Yiskah, Tiefling Warlock

Yiskah is played (and drawn) by the wonderful @paperleviathan​!

Yiskah has reddish brown skin and red sclera-less, pupil-less eyes, and her face is overall, rounder and “sweeter” looking then what you would expect from a tiefling. she has long dark hair that she keeps pulled back 9 times out of 10. Her horns look both like those of an argali sheep and split near the base to form a slight curve back (similar to a tahr). She had a long, thick tail that she keeps underneath her cloak. 


Yiskah was cared for by her mother in a secluded community hidden in deep in the forests. She was taught that her heritage was abnormal by society but society was wrong. she was better, no superior to those outside this community and they would soon get their comeuppance. She was taught about how many years ago her ancestors struck a pact with an arch fiend and her birth was considered a sign of the ushering of the rule from below. When she was young it filled her with excitement-but as she grew older she began to truly understand what her final legacy was going to be.

Well FUCK THAT. she had always had a capacity for magic but she knew to get out it wasn’t enough. she needed help and she sure as hell wasn’t going to make a pact with possible family. She had read of “others” in her studies and if she couldn’t obain assistance here, she’d just reach across planes. she pulled and tugged the strings of the universe until they finally broke and she was finally SEEN. promising service for power to shape her own destiny she knew The final cost would be high, no doubt, but she was willing to pay to keep out of the clutches of her ancestors. And with her newfound powers (and conveniently placed quarterstaff) Yiskah escaped into the night.

Yiskah has vowed to do “good” for a loose definition of the word. She observes those in town and tries to emulate what seems to be the morally acceptable thing. She doesn’t do it because it is the RIGHT thing, she does it because it is the GOOD thing. She doesn’t kick people and she doesn’t laugh at dumb ideas (much). She is unsure exactly how 1. She can get her obligations related to her heritage removed and 2. How to get herself out of the second pact pickle to get rid of the first BUT her elder one seems to not ask for much and so far only asks for random mundane things to honor them. Who knows where it will lead (or even if it will lead down the same path) but she will choose this for herself and won’t fall into fiendish clutches without a fight.

Born Jewish I grew up in between the heart of downtown & south philly. 3 to 4 blocks either way and u where in the other neighborhood. the Israeli Jews on chestnut & market street downtown. They owned #CityBlue they owned #jewelrystores ect….they would stand outside there stores all day in jeans & a white t shirt. Just stand there looking cool while women flocked to em like sheep. I never seen em wear anything but….. Maybe a suit jacket here or there. They pulled this look off far better than me I assure you. But still This might be the softest jacket I ever felt. I wana go cuddle with it….. #mood #brandnew #cashgame #casinolife #salesgame #saleslife #clothes #dapper #fashionlife #FashionableKillers #gram #grinding #jewlife #jewliving #jewmoney #lifestyle #mensch #parx #philly #sj #neighborhood #mensch #nogamblenofuture #reppintime #salute #TheRaw #JEWISHANDPROUD #iSREAL 🇺🇸🇮🇱🇺🇸🇮🇱 by parxpoker https://www.instagram.com/p/BBiET9TDEw-/

→ Meet JENSEN SANER who is a JUNIOR studying ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING and looks particularly like MICHAEL TREVINO. He is played by SHEEP.

❝Darling, I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream.❞

Born on a military base in Germany, Jensen Michael Saner was born to a Hispanic stay-at-home mother and the future general of the United States Marines. He had lived in German for three years, learning it’s native language, English from his father, and Spanish from his mother. A little after his third birthday, he and his mother moved back to the United States. He soon learned afterward, that he would be getting a younger sister.

Before his sister was born, Jensen had been enrolled in a private school for ages 3-prek. There, his mother put him in a dance class. Since the first day, Jensen had fallen in love with the sport. At the age of five, Jensen’s life had taken a couple of turns. The first, Jensen had been enrolled at his very first dance class in a professional studio. There he thrived and pushed himself as hard as some of the top competitors. Second, his sister had been diagnosed with down syndrome. Because of his sister, his mother had to focus all of her time in on her daughter. Even though for the first five years of his life, Jensen had little dependence on anybody else this forced the young boy to become almost completely self reliant.

As Jensen moved into middle school and even high school, he was quick to discover more and more about himself which includes his morals along with his self awareness. This caused him to stick out from his peers in his teachers and his dance teacher’s eyes.

It wasn’t often that Jensen’s peers would question him about personal life. “I’ve know that boy for 15 years.” Said Dani MacCory, the artist director of MacCory Dance Company. “But I promise you, I couldn’t tell you anything about him.” Somethings were obvious: he was a dancer, and he was smart. But anything and everything else about him was pure rumor based. Jensen did well to cover up some points in his life.

One of the best secrets that Jensen contains is his very first boyfriend, who turns out to be much older than he was. When Jensen was sixteen years old, Michael, Jensen’s father, had been promoted to first star general. At the same time, Michael best friend had suffered a bombing accident in Iraq and dishonorably. Jensen was asked if there was a possibility for him to help the man around the house as he recovered. From this relationship, a friendship had bloomed to more than that. For two years, they had a secret relationship that was threatened to end when Jensen’s mother found out. However at the same time, Jensen had discovered his mother’s hidden affair. After they struck a deal with each other, Jensen thought he was home free until his father had made a surprise visit.

After Jensen’s father found out and confronted his best friend. This resulted in Casey leaving the state. During the same summer, Jensen had paid a visit to his chiropractor, learning that his hip been misaligned due to his extensive hours applied stress. This had sent an end to Jensen’s professional career as a dancer.

Lucky for him, Jensen’s brain and talent had been enough for him to get a full ride at Redcrest. Now, Jensen holds the same personality has always had. Usually he is a pleasure to be around, however his answers could be highly technical or short. He is witty, clever, judgmental, highly determined, aloof, and quiet. I would suggest using caution.

→ Meet HUNTER CLARINGTON who is a JUNIOR studying ENGLISH AND INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS and looks particularly like NOLAN GERARD FUNK. He is played by SHEEP.

❝You will remember me for centuries.❞

Hunter was born as the fourth son to a military dad and a mother with a wealthy family. In total, The Claringtons had six children: four boys and two girls (twins). Just like the boys before him, Hunter was made to walk the harsh thin path laid out by his parents. However it all feel apart when his parents divorced just before Hunter’s freshman year of high school.

From there, Hunter went to live with his mother in the large mansion of the Boose, where Hunter was released from the strict lifestyle that he had with his father. Since Hunter had more responsibility to himself, he took signs up for school into his own hands. Lucky for him, his mother was too busy into social gatherings to pay attention to her children. Hunter decided that he was explore other talents such as the arts.

That was until his father had gotten a hold of him and had demanded that his son be sent to a strict military boarding school. Because his mother didn’t want anything to do with her exhusband, to shut him up, she complied with his request. Just as Hunter was starting to thrive in his school, he was taken away to a military boarding school.

In some fashion, Hunter wanted his father’s approval. However as he got to his new school, he felt as if there was a part of him being taken away. He pressed on and pushed so that he could impress his father. Even though the school had it’s own section of arts, Hunter did his best to stray away from it.

It was clear that Hunter was going to join the military. But he knew his mother would be able to pay for college. So, Hunter decided to apply to any place. As long as he took a major that would imply his entrance, he could satisfy his father. Since the beginning of his time at the university, Hunter has been buying his time to see if he can avoid signing but stay in his father’s good graces.

the secrets that we keep

i almost want to purge every horrible thing that happened. maybe one is all i need. all of the gritty details. racism was one. his silence (which equaled co-signing) was the other.

about 7 months ago, his parents sat him down and basically said “she’s black, your kids are going to look nothing like you.” good stuff. so. him, being the ignorant sheep he was, was thrown off by this. he was too busy dealing with how this affected him to stand up for me. which. ok. i guess if you’ve lived 25 years in the dark because you have the privilege to do so - then ok. 

the thing about this - he never did anything else about this situation. i didn’t ask him to delete his parents or go with me to a black power parade. but i did ask him to make sure that if his parents weren’t going to respect me, that he made sure to counter it. nah.

i sat his mom down at lunch one day - he was sitting right there. i confronted her. i repeated to her what she said to me. (I’m getting goosebumps and 100 degrees of rage writing this - which is good) She looked at me and said “well, i had a dream, and it included blonde hair, blue eyed grandchildren.” 

he sat there. silent. plain silent. 

but i stayed. 

at this point - it’s my fault. 

come christmas, his mom invited me over for dinner. well, i wasn’t up for playing tituba for the holidays, when i have a family that loves me. (at this point, i was already ready to leave. i can clearly say that i didn’t love him anymore at this point. it’d been a while since i loved him.) i told them i wasn’t going. his dad called him and told him that i needed to “grow up” and “learn to be uncomfortable (with their racism.)” so, i told his dad how i felt - and his dad told him that i was “full of bull.” he didn’t say anything. he just sat there.


i almost wonder if he let his parents do what they did because he didn’t really care about me anymore either. but that would mean he didn’t care about me for months on end before that.

but here’s where he and i differ - i didn’t love him anymore, but that didn’t give me permission to disrespect him.
