How to feel like a mermaid

- collect seashells

- wear hair pearls

- drink coconut milk

- use seaweed soap

- wash your face with mineral water

- sing to yourself

- apply aloe vera gel on your face

- watch the moon at nights

- apply shimmery pale eyeshadows

- wear silk dresses 

- start your day with a swim

- wear seaweed face masks

- eat spirulina and/or chlorella

- learn to play an instrument 

- listen to soft and relaxing songs

- fill a spray bottle with natural spring water and a teaspoon of sea salt add a few drops of rose oil and voilà! your mermaid hair spray is ready 

i keep trying to memorize every detail of the moments i live in. in the soreness of my legs from standing so long at a concert, the chill of the night, the patterns of a tablecloth, the oily texture in my mouth after eating fried bananas. i keep trying to memorize the feelings, the quiet contentedness, the laughter, the excitement. i keep trying to memorize the people, their smiles, the way they speak, what makes them laugh. i’m constantly on the cusp of the next part of my life and that’s just so.. strange. but it makes it so much easier to find happiness no matter what’s happening to me, in a way? because i’m already kind of looking at life with those rose-colored glasses of nostalgia, simply because i know these are times i’ll never be able to live again, and these are people i might not always have, and that makes it so much easier to appreciate everything i might miss later.

Some things are really hard to watch.

I don’t know what it is with locations in this show (like, why was Eileen geographically located in Alaska on BmoL screen, when she was killed the same day in South Carolina?). But something is seriously wrong.

I’m not sure if this is an actual clue or just shameless disregard for geography, but the place in Washington where Cas’ cottage in 12x23 lies (North Cove) is NOWHERE NEAR THE ACTUAL MOUNTAINS. It’s a beach area by the Pacific Ocean. I checked it three times after I noticed this:

(That’s Brokeback Mountain, if you wondered. The “I don’t know how to quit you”-scene.)

Yeaaaaah, so just one more subtle-but-not-really-that-subtle romantic parallel, isn’t it? Of course the lake looked familiar to so many people. Heh. 

After this much playing with our heads, if they don’t deliver next season, I think I’ll sue.

Edit: Here are all the visual parallels between SPN & Brokeback Mountain I could find. 

Edit 2: Cas is also driving Jack’s truck this season:

Ace attor…nay?? We’re here to save the day!!!

Made some new Ace Attorney buttons (& a special heart shaped Miles/Feenie button!) for Anime North 2017! The ones I used to print were from 2014 and suuuper old and I didn’t like having them in circulation, despite how well they sold. so now it’s time for a redraw! I didn’t have enough time so I chose the characters that were the most liked! See y’all at AN *WINKS
