why am i not this beautiful

some part of tumblr is like “ belle fell in love with a beast. “ it’s not realistic and i’m sitting here like and cinderella rode in a pumpkin, had a fairy god mother, talked to rats, snow white practically died because of a poisoned apple, sleeping beauty pricked her finger with a spinning wheel… rapunzel has magical glowing hair, ariel was best friends with a fish and gave up her tail to go find love. jasmine had a pet tiger and rode on a magic carpet…

do you know what that’s called? it’s called fiction and you know how you enjoy it? by having an imagination.

anonymous asked:

I was wondering about physical appearances and first houses. I am a libra rising with venus in 1st but I am not stereotypically beautiful or anything, and my features aren't symmetrical. I also have mercury, jupiter and pluto in the 1st house. Could that be why?

Well, Venus influence doesn’t always point to physically beautiful features… It can, but it doesn’t always. It always gives a vibe of charm and sociability in your case since you’re a Libra Rising.

You also have a 1st House stellium also so in addition to Venus, you have a lot of other planets that also play a role into your appearance.

this is my favorite image on the face of the earth and im going to ruin it by trying to paint this tomorrow cause i have no artistic ability, using water color, which i have no experience with except like painting when i was 5. ill be liveblogging the probable failure. stay tuned.

What he says: I’m fine.

What he means:  
I was the one who had it all
I was the master of my fate
I never needed anybody in my life
I learned the truth too late

I’ll never shake away the pain
I close my eyes but she’s still there
I let her steal into my melancholy heart
It’s more than I can bear

Now I know she’ll never leave me
Even as she runs away
She will still torment me, calm me, hurt me
Move me, come what may

Wasting in my lonely tower
Waiting by an open door
I’ll fool myself she’ll walk right in
And be with me for evermore

I rage against the trials of love
I curse the fading of the light
Though she’s already flown so far beyond my reach
She’s never out of sight

Now I know she’ll never leave me
Even as she fades from view
She will still inpire me, be a part of
Everything I do

Wasting in my lonely tower
Waiting by an open door
I’ll fool myself she’ll walk right in
And as the long, long nights begin
I’ll think of all that might have been
Waiting here for evermore!

What would you say is the biggest problem facing young women today?

We think that we live in a post-feminist society, and we do not. We’re told we don’t need feminism anymore, that we have the vote, that like, we’re all good. And I think, actually, that’s incredibly disconcerting because then, when young women move into the world and they realize, Oh, why am I not being paid the same, why am I being treated differently? And they start to blame themselves because they don’t understand that they’re part of a historic pattern, they’re part of a much larger system which is kind of working a little bit against them. (x)

Tears captured in beautiful microscopic images reveals their unique nature

A Dutch artist created the amazing images in a bid to see if different triggers -such as eating a chilli or chopping onions- created different looking tears.
‘I decided to start an evening of experimenting with my close friends,’ wrote Maurice Mikkers, the photographer. 'I asked them to cut onions, eat hot peppers, look in to a fan or cry because of sadness or happiness. To see if there was a resemblance or difference in the structure of forming tears, I took images of every tear drop under the microscope.’
Scientifically tears are divided into three different types based on their origin. Tears contain oils, antibodies and enzymes and fall into three categories: basal, which are released continuously to keep the eyes lubricated ; reflex, which occur in response to irritants such as when chopping onions or when getting poked in the eye ; and psychic, triggered by emotions. Scientists have identified that different types of tears are made up of distinct molecules. For example those caused by emotions contain hormones which act as a painkiller and are released when we are stressed.
'We are all familiar with these ways of crying, but how do they look microscopically? Is there any difference? Science says that every tear has a different viscosity and composition,’ said Mikkers. 'Nevertheless they are beautiful to look at.’
