seasons spring

Equinox from space

March 20th was the Equinox, the day when the sun is directly above the equator and where the North and South Pole both receive equal amounts of sunlight. For the next 6 months the South Pole will be in shadow and the North Pole will receive sunlight.

The Japanese Himawari-8 weather satellite captured this gif/video view of the Earth moving into night over the Pacific Ocean yesterday; this is just about as closely balanced as the planet can get, with both poles receiving just about the same amount of light.

Sometimes I look forward to the spring flowers and greenery so much that I start getting upset that it’ll be gone soon, before it even starts. And when spring arrives, I start panicking cause all the flowers will be gone and I’m running out of time to enjoy them and I can’t do anything about it lmfao

Favorite Fruit?: Strawberries (I actually hate most fruit)

Favorite Season?: Spring

Favorite Book?: I don’t have an all time favorite, but I do like The Outsiders and Goth Girl Rising. I come back to those ones regularly.

Favorite Scent?: I’m not really sure…

Favorite Color?: This changes with my mood. 

Favorite Animal?: Sea Turtle, White Bengal Tiger

Coffee, Tea, or Hot Cocoa?: Neither, by itself. I do like peppermint mochas. 

Average Sleep Hours?: Somewhere from 6-12 hours. It depends on what I’m doing the next day, lol. 

Cat or Dog Person?: Cat. I’m afraid of dogs, I don’t like dogs. I have the word “dog” blocked on here so I see less of them, too. They are not cute to me. 

Favorite Fictional Character?: I’ve never thought about this before.

Blog Created: January 2013. My freshman year of college, my friends persuaded me to get one. 

Number of Followers: 779

When Did Your Blog Reach Its Peak?: Maybe a year or two after I made it. Probably 2.

Why Did You Pick Your URL?: I struggled with this so hard…it took me a long time to think of one. I don’t even love it, honestly. It just works. It is a reference to the fact that I never share all of myself with anyone, even on here. I’m split up between multiple side blogs. The secrets are the dark. Halfway into darkness.

Last Movie You Watched?: Eurotrip

Last Song You Listened To?: I’m not sure honestly. It would have been yesterday.

Last Book You Read?: I can’t read. College ruined my ADD. Can’t focus worth shit on any book. I used to really like reading but now I don’t have the attention span for it. I managed to get by in college in the last two years without picking up a single book. 

Last Thing You Ate?: I haven’t eaten today yet. My guess would be the alcohol from last night. 

If You Could Be Anywhere Right Now, Where Would You Be?: Somewhere warm, on a quiet beach. Because then it’s not a beach. It’s a coast. I’m tired of being cold. 

What Time Would You Travel to If You Could?: I’d go way far in the future. 

That’s it. I tag @tiske, @midnightbutterfly13, and YOU.
