Owls are well known for being silent predators and one of the most important reasons for that silence is the hooks and bows on the leading edge of their wings. This edge breaks up the air flow around the wing into smaller streams that make mush less noise. The trailing edge of the wing also has a softer fringe that helps to muffle the little noise that’s left. (Source)

pls do not imagine the reunion after your thinking time and weeks apart from Ben. thank.

Please don’t imagine the way he looks at you, with wide eyes and parted lips as he desperately hopes you’ll come to him instead of telling him you’re leaving.

Please don’t imagine the way he takes you in his big arms when you do go to him, the way he buries his face in your hair and holds you so close because he’s always been afraid of losing you but he never thought he might lose you to himself.

Please don’t imagine Ben’s silent apologies as he covers your face and the top of your head with kisses, stroking your hair.

Please don’t imagine your big tough crime lord Kylo Ren amounting to a puddle of mush in your arms.

One of my favorite colder-weather kennel chores is distributing straw to doghouses. The dogs LOVE the fresh straw and will dig and wallow in it and make nests. Then they typically retreat into their nests and refuse to come out for a while.

After our first two seven-mile runs back-to-back, the team deserves a nice rest and warm straw. We are taking the weekend off training, aside from free-running and I am using the time to work on a few Fall projects.

i hate that warning selfies are still a thing but, still i kinda love how whenever it happens we all collectively lose our shit over how absolutely gorgeous he is and then we just sit here waiting for the thing he was warning us about to happen so we can just roll our eyes , laugh and move on bc he made sure to let us know how scripted all of this is since the first warning selfie bc he knew and probably saw us being lost and scared. love this boy so freaking mush oh my god


I’m all caught up!!

I managed to do a week’s worth of studying in one weekend and I don’t think I’ve ever studied harder or for so long. My brain feels like mush and I’m tired, but since it’s only 3pm it means I can relax for a little bit, which I’m pleased about 😊

Week 3 technically started yesterday, so if I make sure to do a little bit of week 3 today and carry on tomorrow, I should be on track ready for the face to face tutorial on Wednesday.

I’m so relieved! 💕

still not over what happened earlier today ;-;
my head still hurts and I can’t turn my neck to the left much 😭

I’m a paranoid person to begin with so now I just can’t stop worrying over if I’m gonna be okay and if it was just a one time thing… we don’t have health insurance or anything so I won’t be seeing a doctor anytime soon

ahhhG I just keep thinking about the moment when I was looking up at my sister and thinking what’s going on & what is this intense pain in my head…! felt like my brain had turned to mush ;-;

everyone is like oh you probably just slipped out of the chair and hit your head that’s why u can’t remember…but I’m like 99% sure I blacked out while I was sitting and that’s why I fell over onto the floor (& then banged my head) because I was sitting just chilling not leaning back or doing anything unusual…! I took a sip of the soda and I felt a chest pain then next thing I know I’m on the floor confused, crying and shaking 😭

Im not with my sister anymore either so now I’m like worried about going to sleep…my parents won’t check on me cuz they really could care less 😔

If I don’t post tomorrow I’m dead 😭😭😭(okay sorry that’s really dramatic but I’m feeling so uneasy right now like all my energy is drained and my brain is jello)

*sigh* what a shitty day oh and the cherry on top is we lost power today as well!! cuz of the wind outsideee

rotted-milk  asked:

Artist asks 1-5!

1: Take a picture of your workspace.

2: Show your pencilcase and what’s inside.

3: Show a thing you last drew, no matter how small or a “doodle” it is.

Still a wip but yeah.

4: Lineart or coloring?

I don’t know…I hate them both so much.

Unless “coloring” also includes shading (which I don’t mind), I’ll go with lineart.  At least then there’s some variety.  For my comic I had to color the same tree in like 20 times and now my brain is mush.

5: Who/what inspires you?

My older, shittier art.  My friends who totally kick my ass when it comes to art.  And Keith Wormwood is my favorite artist of all time, but his art is on a whole different level that I think it’s unfair for me to say he’s an influence.

Also I’m always inspired by Tom Wait’s music.  Or at least that’s what I jam to when I’m drawing.

      it’s his least favorite thing——      keeping watch.    most of these women are older ( especially considering the broadcast for missing youth,    parents keep an extra close eye on their teens. )    yet,    there was one girl,    a rose petal unplucked.   she is young,     ripe in the eyes of the hungry man—    it saddens him,    really,     seeing her there.    she didn’t belong there.    none of them did,    but,    least of all her,    a star with galaxies left uncrossed. 

he watches her,     but doesn’t speak.   hands come to scoop a bowl of mush for her;     he wishes he could give her something more edible.    it’s slid through a small hole in the cage,    sneaky and quiet,    as to go unnoticed by the other women.    it wasn’t time to eat yet.    // @innocentiia

one saturday, i won’t have anywhere to go.
at 9:07, i’ll find you next to me
kiss your forehead
and go back to sleep

one saturday, i’ll make a slow breakfast.
while you’re in the shower,
i’m making the coffee
and you’re slipping your arms around me

one saturday, we’ll be together.
wandering farmers markets
snapping pictures of each other,
sneaking kisses

one saturday, ill go to sleep.
knowing that life can’t get better
that i’m not dreaming
that i’m finally home.


What’s that saying? 
               The show’s gotta go all over the place… or something? (insp.)

GOODBYE GLEE (2009-2015)
