pathways in life

Sometimes you have to be your own source of happiness. Cloudy days are only temporary, but that doesn’t mean they don’t occur.
—  Nicole Addison @thepowerwithin

in the astrology story a fireball explodes from the sky in a scarlet pinata the world awakens and the cosmic child named aries prepares to conquer it all, 
as she propels through the world she enters the deep forest, and in the aroma of nature, the cold dew sprinkling against her skin, the trees breathing around here, she stops still for a moment and takes a breath she is taurus 
and know she knows how beautiful this all is 
and after that marvellous exhale with air rushing through her lungs
she felt the wind gust through her mind, suddenly its pathways came to life 
two giggling twins emerged from seemingly the nothingness of thin air, two little matching geminis 
talking a language of their own, mixing mischief with brilliance 
as the night fell the cancer queen appeared from the sky slumbering in her half crescent moon throne, ruling the stars and the ebony sky and guarding her children as they sleep
when she eventually falls into dream, the leo king rises to paint the sky a reverent shade of blue, bedazzling and igniting the royalty inside all of the residents in the kingdom, the king eventually becomes worn and longs for a moment in the shadow 
here the virgo comes out from her hiding place, her hands callused with golden cracks from tugging the ropes of the sun and the moon, secretly orchestrating the whole show, the silent server
and the heart that drives her toward this generosity grows and grows inside her chest, love infusing with air so petals become of her tongue and she becomes libra, the architecture that is another mesmerises her until it becomes her completely, her love dissolves the physical body, the soul is revealed
and so is the scorpio 
she holds out her ghostly hand seducing you into a world beyond senses, hypnotising with swirling and magnetising eyes, luring you to go deeper and deeper and evoke the climax more, go deeper and deeper and provoke the ledges of your sanity more, and as she does and rises into a state where 
there is no boundary, contamination, or ego 
she has risen to the sky where she is flying on the back of an arrow, throwing her hair back gloriously as a sagittarius, now she is half human and 
half angel she can see comfortably from the heights of the higher mind 
her arrow hits the tip of the mountain - target centre 
and she becomes capricorn, the sovereign of land, air, and sea, she who has seen, conquered, and known all, she who resides at the peak edge of vision, guiding pilgrims as they come to extract her wisdom 
as she watches these pilgrims make their way in masses up the mountain, the unity and oneness of all humanity is revealed to her, she burns down her reputation and becomes one with the people, she becomes an aquarius
and she walks amongst them, nourishing them with her enlightened mind 
as she grows worn and tired and her mind begins to lose its perception of what is real and what is not, she begins drifting into the nothing state, the everything state, the pisces state, and the body that held her captive begins to dissolve, she reflects on the story that has been, and the goddess she has become
finally it’s time to go home

Introducing STAR ATLAS: A Yuri!!! on Ice Space Zine!

A star atlas is a map of the night sky. For the length of human history, we have looked to the heavens for navigation. The stars have served as guiding points in both the material and spiritual pathways of human life. In gazing at the vastness of the night sky, we seek to be comforted, and to find our journeys reflected. How long until we reach the far shore? What does the future have in store?

Star Atlas is a space-themed Yuri!! On Ice zine aimed to answer some of these questions. Astronomy and astrology; hard science and mysticism hand-in-hand.

We welcome art and stories that fit within this theme, and feature our beloved Yuri!!! On Ice characters.

Applications will open on October 12th, 2017! Let’s explore this new frontier together! 🌟

True motherly advice from Mrs. Murphy
  • Milo: I'm so confused. It seems like its really important to pick a career, but I just don't know what to pick.
  • Milo's Mom: Well, don't. Do everything. Being an architect is my second career and I had plenty of jobs before that. You shouldn't worry too much about it today. Just being Milo, that's a full time job, wouldn't you say?
  • Milo: Yeah. Sure keeps me busy.
  • Milo's Mom: Besides, I already know what you're going to be.
  • Milo: What?
  • Milo's Mom: You're going to be extraordinary.

Today, maybe you are in a place where you have to make an important decision which may change the course of your entire future. Maybe, you don’t know what to do.
The Creator of the universe, the source of all wisdom, knowledge and power, the LORD Almighty says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.” Psalm 32:8 Jesus promises not only to guide us but watch over us, which means, He will see to it that we are not ensnared by the enemy, He knows exactly where the enemy has hidden his traps and therefore steers us away from them and leads us in the direction we must take to the destination He has planned for us. Would you trust Him to lead you?

Bucky Barnes was an anomaly, a complete wild card. Bucky Barnes was beyond the reasonable control of the law and fate alike. Bucky Barnes was the single black ink spot that bled into the crisp white pages of the book that you wrote for yourself. And Bucky Barnes was most certainly a bad idea.

The beautiful good girl falls for the rugged bad boy, it’s a classic story, really, but this fable is far from the old cliche. The ‘bad boys’ depicted in such tales were troublemakers, maybe the skateboarder that smoked a just bit too much pot, or the low ranking member of the town’s local gang seeking a pretty girl to bandage his bloodied knuckles. Bucky Barnes was neither one of those characters, he was an entirely different breed of man.

Blowing Something Off

It’s not just blowing off an exercise that you planned, it’s not just bad for you physically but bad for you mentally because then that option is now available. The option to fuck off is available and you did it before and you’ll probably do it again and you’ll get mediocre results not just in that aspect of your life but maybe in all aspects of your life. Because that option to fuck off when you embrace it, that is a pathway that you might choose when it comes to dealing with conflict in your personal life, dealing with business decisions, dealing with career decisions, an uncomfortable decision you might be faced with or maybe you need to make a change as far as what your pathway is in life. But you don’t do it, instead, you fuck off and that inclination to fuck off, I think that gathers momentum as well. The inclination to be disciplined, that comes with momentum too and I think both things you take a path, the path of the healthy person or the path of the fuck off. Like both of them are available and whichever path you embrace dictates your character.

A Week In The Life: Wednesday 9AM-11AM: Biochemistry

I pyru-hate my life.

First in the lecture series on carbohydrate metabolism was gluconeogenesis! Not gonna lie this lecture was a massive struggle; I didn’t manage any sleep again last night so was exhausted, then I got drenched on the way to lecture, and I only managed to get down about half of the content as there were HUGE paragraphs in the notes sections under the slides; the notes I normally take are normally good enough and just require small amounts of extra detail but I’m going to have to re-do the ENTIRE thing. I was a little bit of a grumpy so and so at the end of the 4-hour consecutive stretch!

I’m off to the library tonight after I’ve napped, so that I can get down the rest of it, and because my laptop seems to be undergoing apoptosis I pretty much have no choice but to go to the library! Late start (1PM) tomorrow so I will actually get a decent amount of sleep, yay!!!

(also on the bright side the giant microbes that i ordered after seeing them both on lecture slides and physically after one of my Microbiology lecturers brought them to show us morphologies arrived!!! I got one for myself and one for Tom for Christmas, his favourite biology modules is Development so I got him a C.elegans as they are a popular model organism for studying development)

The Station Just Behind You, #1

Unwilling to fulfill the prophecy if it means leaving the ​horcrux inside him to die, Harry takes another path and finds himself in 1926. But with a possible future Dark Lord as his ward and a bargain for this new life with stipulations Harry is only learning after the fact, the past proves just as unpredictable as the present. 

[Gen or pre-slash for an undetermined pairing, time travel, kidfic, dubious morality with a side of murder, written entirely on my phone with all the autocorrect wackiness that implies.]

FIC TAG


For someone whose nickname is the Boy Who Lived, Harry still manages to be inordinately surprised by the fact that he lives through his second killing curse. He listens as Dumbledore explains the situation, unable to stop looking around the white wisps of something in the air and the washed out, muted colors of King’s Cross Station. Even the train isn’t as bright as it is in life. There’s something missing here, and it’s not the life and color that he’s never seen the station without.

When Dumbledore stops speaking, Harry quietly says, “Is this what it’s going to feel like? To live without the horcrux?”

“Yes,” Dumbledore says. “I know it must be relief.”
