nerds in a forest

Yellow :)

if you could have any view from your bedroom window what would you choose? 

Probably a forest. I’m a huge nerd for trees and nature, like one time I took a quiz to see what LOTR race I’d be and I got Ent so…

what’s your favorite thing to do on a sunny day? 

I love going on walks and if it’s not too hot I like going on a run. I also like reading outside. There’s this trail by my house that no one really walks and I LOVE it. It’s surrounded by a bunch of trees, has a little waterfall, and huge moss covered rocks. It’s v aesthetically pleasing imo. Pics cuz I walked it recently:

what do you consider lucky? 

hmm, when you buy used books and find bookmarks/notes/annotations from the previous owner. Or when you think you failed a test and end up getting one of your highest grades in that class.

what made you smile today? 

One of my nephews, Charles, who is 1 & ½ years old is staying at our house for the week and he came up to me and was snuggling with me and gave me kisses (he’s not usually super affectionate so it was kind of a suprise). Also, my professor in my English class is really unintentionally funny.

what makes you happy?

My family, I am the youngest of 14 and have 21 nieces and nephews, so they are a huge part of my life and for the most part make me feel all fuzzy inside :). Also, my friend @flannelblism she’s a good seed. Also, books, music, writing, and Hannibal.


Sorry this was so long, I got a little carried away when I thought about nature XD

JELLYFISH PILLOW

Quote from Welcome To Night Vale Episode 22: “The Whispering Forest”
Pattern based on this piece by Jedishywalker

OH MY GOD I FINISHED IT. MONTHS OF MY LIFE. Look at the jellyfish GAZE UPON THEIR WEIRDNESS AND BEAUTY. GAZE UPON THE COLORS. GAZE AND MOAN INTO THE ENDLESS VOID.

This is one of my very, very favorite quotes from Night Vale. It is now on my couch. This is how you nerd-adult.


Thank yous!
@crinoline-gremlin for talking me off the ledge during the pillowcase portion! <3

@jedishywalker for the pattern base!

My lovely co-worker for lending me all the jellyfish colors!

“A squirrel, Ratatosk, lives in the branches of the world-tree. It takes gossip and messages from Nidhogg, the dread corpse-eater, to the eagle and back again. The squirrel tells lies to both of them, and takes joy in provoking anger.”

I have been ranting with my lovely friend about tree bros and I thought of this and now I’m emotional and need to think out a beginning, middle and end.

so this is loosely based o the chatroom portion of ‘a cinderella story’

-Connor and Evan met through an online forum for teens suffering from mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. usernames had to be anonymous so they both went for names relating to why they were using the site. Evan lovingly going by ‘anxious-tree-lover’ and Connor going for the angsty early 2000s usernames, xXdarklikemysoulXx. 
-they first start talking because Evan posted something about the kids at school being mean and shoving him against lockers, and Connor popped up in my private inbox, saying how he knew what it was like to be a target, despite the fact that he mostly got verbal abuse for being a freak. 
-they spoke about unrequited crushes, Evan on Zoe (and Connor) murphy, but only referring to them as the girl and the boy. Connor on ‘some adorable quiet kid’ aka Evan.
-once they started to get to know each other more, they started talking about family, Evan telling how it’s just his mum and him, his dad left when he was younger, Connor in return telling about his rocky relationship with his parents. 
-”I love my parents but each day’s another fight. maybe if I stop smoking pot then everything will be alright.” 
-Evan, being the tree nerd he is, obviously says “take deep breaths and go on walks. I’m sending pictures of the most amazing trees.” “wow you nerd”
-bonus if Evan replied “you’ll be obsessed with all my forest expertise ;)” and Connor gets weirdly flustered when receiving that message
-Evan shares with Connor that his therapist has said for him to start writing letters to himself. Connor told him that as weird as that sounds, he thinks it’ll really help him if he keeps at it and doesn’t give up. 
-eventually, they both learn that they go to the same school, but both were terrified that if they found out who the other was, it would ruin what they have. on Evan's side, it’s also to do with the fact he has started getting butterflies with every message he receives and is really scared that if xXdarklikemysoulXx found out who he really was, he wouldn’t like what he sees. despite the fact that he had already seen the worst of him.
-when at school, Evan kept an eye out for his mysterious messenger, not quite trying to figure out who he is, but more to theorise about who it could be, making up cute scenarios in his head. but, one day, at the start of senior year, a couple of months after he started talking to xXdarklikemysoulXx, Evan came into contact with Connor murphy properly for the first time since elementary. after a rather bad encounter with him when Jared made a badly timed joke, he was in the computer lab with him, Connor asked to sign his cast. he then asked how he broke it, and when Evan told him that he had fallen out of a tree, he told him that was possibly the saddest thing he had ever heard, chuckling. 
-as he was about to leave, Connor told him he found something at the printer written ‘dear Evan Hansen’, so being a good soul he decided to give it to him. until Connor saw something about his sister. he flipped out, running out of the room, Evan desperately trying to get his letter back, as later in the letter there was a lot of gushing about xXdarklikemysoulXx which he did not want Connor seeing and making fun of him for. 
-when he got home, he messaged xXdarklikemysoulXx, who normally replied almost immediately, five minutes after at most. it was almost an hour later that he kept sending him messages hoping to get a reply. yet nothing came through. 
-it was like that for three days, and it didn’t help that for those three days, Connor wasn’t at school either. probably plotting how to kill him with that beautiful head of his. 
-on the third day (he didn’t get called into the principal’s office by Connor’s parents because Connor is still alive), when he got home, he opened his computer to a message. from xXdarklikemysoulXx. saying “the park, by the huge oak tree. 4.30pm.” Evan looked at the clock to find it 4, so he practically sprinted out the house, shouting to his mum that he was going to Jared’s. 
-as he got to the park, he saw a figure sitting by the tree, it wasn’t until he got closer that he realised it was Connor murphy. with his letter. did he hack into xXdarklikemysoulXx to get him here? was he xXdarklikemysoulXx? He wasn’t sure which was better at this particular moment. as he approached the tree, Connor didn’t acknowledge him, simply held up the letter in front of him and started to read aloud. “all of my hope is pinned on Zoe. well, to be completely honest, that’s a lie. I thought I had been in love with her for years until I started speaking to xXdarklikemysoulXx. I have no idea who he is, but he is probably the most important part of my life other than my mum.” Connor let out a dry chuckle before folding up the letter and putting it in his pocket. “while I was signing your cast, all I could think is that I would go home, message anxious_tree_lover and tell him all about how I signed the cute, quiet boy’s cast, and maybe I would start an unlikely friendship, get over my weird pining thing and fully dedicate myself to finding anxious_tree_lover’s identity” the air was sucked from his lungs. Connor stood up, taking several steps toward Evan, hands in his pockets. he looked Evan straight in the eye. “I should have guessed it was you, from both the fact that you fell out a tree, and that you wrote a letter to yourself. dear Evan Hansen, today wasn’t a good day, because why would it be?” 
-Evan was frozen still, the only thing he could get out was a stuttered ‘i-i’m s-sorry.” Connor let the edge of his mouth turn up slightly, before his eyes darted between Evan’s eyes and lips, and back up to his eyes to look for a sign of ‘ew no’, and when he found none, he leant down placing his lips upon Evan’s. when he pulled away, he ran a hand through his hair before motioning for Evan to sit next to him at the bottom of the tree. after sitting there a while, Evan tentatively laid his head on Connor’s shoulder, Evan wrapping an arm around his shoulders. 

Saint Louis Travel Guide (inspired by a st. louis hate post lol)

so people were poking fun at st. louis, i didnt take it to hert, but it gave me an opportunity to share what great stuff there is to do in st. louis!! (i just copied and pasted so sorry for typos)

we have this really cool building called the city museum which is basically a huge play house museum, consisting largely of repurposed artsy architectural and industrial objects!! (theres a bus that hangs off the side of the building)
we have the missouri history museum thats nationally recognized as one of the best history museums in the nation, and others museums have looked into how they get so much attraction

which the history museum in a small part of huge forest park, one of the biggest and oldest urban parks in the nation! it hosted the 1904 worlds, one of the few structures that still remains is also our nationally recognized art museum!! also home to the #1 zoo in america (USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards contest)

and for u aesthetic flower nerds out there like me, we have the botanical gardens which every winter has a cool a** lightshow, sadly its not winter, but theres so much to do there too as well!!

not the arch but the riverboats down by the arch!! they take u on cruises up and down the Mississippi river with live music, good food, and cool views.

scottrade center home of the st. louis blues, one of the top teams in the league!! super great armosphere, LIT atmosphere when they play the hawks!!

and last but not least, a close one to millenium park would be the city gardern, where local modern art is displayed in the heart of downtown st. louis, a super cool place for families with small children! they have water geyers and cool waterfalls and lil mini pools for the kids!! its super neat in the summer, in the winter, like the botanical gardens, they display a light show every night!!
