“His fingers touched the strings, and all my thoughts were displaced. The sound was pure and sweet as water, bright as lemons. It was like no music I had ever heard before. It had warmth as a fire does, a texture and weight like polished ivory. It buoyed and soothed at once.”
Plants that aid with sleep and breathing problems.
Aloe Vera emits oxygen at night, this helps you combat insomnia and improves your overall sleep quality. It is a low maintenance plant that doesn’t need much watering or direct sunlight . It also reproduces easily.
Lavender is a plant well known for inducing sleep and to reduce anxiety, the aroma given off by the lavender slows down your heart rate and reduces anxiety levels. Keep the plant in sunlight and water often.

Jasmine needs a good amount of sunlight as well as a little shade, the soil also needs to be damp at all times.

Fun facts with Quinn!
(This is so I don’t have to repeat myself on a regular basis)
Everybody should have learnt this in secondary school/ high-school. As we all know all plants take in the the air we breath, removing the CO2 and releasing Oxygen. DURING THE NIGHT PLANTS STOP THIS PROCESS they only take in the air we breathe, this happens because they don’t have the necessary energy to complete photosynthesis. As you can see in the above post I have listed a few plants that can produce oxygen during the night. Please if you don’t believe me go and look for yourself it takes two seconds to look it up on the internet.
Also there are no links for this information because I am no longer in college I do not see the need to write a bibliography for a tumblr post if you really care that much about where the information is sourced go and look for it yourself.
Sorry for the shittyness but it is starting to grind my gears.
With all my love tumblr ~Quinn!
We experienced throwing the first ceremonial pitch for the first time at #Koshien, so we were so nervous that our hearts wouldn’t stop racing, but thanks to all the ARMYs and various people who cheered for us a lot, we enjoyed ourselves! Thank you so much❤️ Let’s meet again👋 #BangtanBoys #BTS
So I let Misha to signed this first, He asked me ‘is it Cas in a wedding dress?’ I said yes (/ω＼). Then he signed it and drew the mustache on Jensen’s face.
I told Jensen what Misha did, and he wrote something, (its too small I couldn’t see it (;´༎ຶД༎ຶ`), and said no, I can’t write like that, then he crossed it and change it to an arrow, and he wrote ‘I knew it ’( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°).
After that I went to let Misha see It again, he took the photo and stare at it for a long time, then he said ‘damn it!’ Σ(-᷅_-᷄๑)
*this is the first time I post this photo, before this, I don’t know who stolen my photo, please don’t do it again!
once again people of tumblr let’s spread the word.
the brand didn’t give credit for their inspiration and i wouldn’t call it just inspiration since they are identical.
what is worse is the fact that they claim it to be of “african-inspiration”. confusing romanian and african culture is offensive for both cultures because they have different characteristics.
also, when we tried to reach them, they deleted comments on the brand’s facebook page.
THIS IS A PIECE OF ROMANIAN HISTORY, TRADITION AND CULTURE AND YOU CAN’T CALL IT YOURS.
there are romanian designers who have more rights to use traditional inspiration and they struggle with their collections and then here comes the big brands using cultures around the world to make money.
Records of men who camped at Valley Forge, expose the myth of farmers throwing down their plows to fight for land they’d owned for generations.
Enlisted ranks were largely landless men in their teens or early twenties, unmarried and poor. The army offered steady wage, food, whiskey, and clothes, so patriotism was not often the driving factor of their enlistment. A study of 710 New Jersey Continentals showed almost all came from lower economic classes and only a small number had a profession at all.
In addition to being landless, most were not American-born. Before the revolution, over 300,000 Irish had immigrated to North America, and their bitterness of British oppression helped lead the drive for independence. In most New England Continental regiments, 10-20% of the men had Irish surnames, and in middle states that percentage was consistently higher. Units from Maryland, New Jersey, and Delaware were usually around 45% Irish. In The First Pennsylvania, 315 of 660 men were Irish-born and another 215 listed “America” as their place of birth, likely second-generation immigrants.
After the Irish, German-born men held the second-largest percentage, making up somewhere from 10-20% of the rank-and-file soldiers at Valley Forge. They were the largest ethnic group in the United States at the time, mostly settled in New York and Pennsylvania.
Additionally, almost 10% of Washington’s army, camped at Valley Forge, was made up of African or African American soldiers. Many enlisted voluntarily, but it’s true that some were given as bounty for their masters to avoid enlistment. And, many served through to the end of the war, finding better treatment among enlisted ranks as ‘brother soldiers’.
