enjoy your fictional characters you nerds
punning should be an olympic sport please hear me ancient greek gods and make it so
trying to rationalize your way out of an ambiguous character death like
- Me: [to my friend] Sam, when we get out of the train, I'm taking you out with me.
- Her: Why?
- Me: Because that sign says to take your rubbish out with you *points to train sign* *laughs at my own joke until I almost cry*
- Her: Oh my goodness are you serious are you kidding me not funny not funny at all.
My life is full of responsibility. I am responsible for the food, clothing, and shelter of another person, as well as myself. I both work full time and go to school full time. If I don’t do the cleaning, the cooking, the laundry, or pay the bills, none of those things would get done. My life is full of adult responsibilities, and good lord I don’t want to read about them as well.
I love reading about people falling in love for the first time. I love reading about young people saving the world, because that is something that may just need to happen someday. I love reading about people whose problems are easily fixed with a kiss. Or whose only concern is homework, or trying to find where the cafeterias are from their dorm rooms.
I don’t only read ya. I do read adult books as well. But sometimes I have so much on my plate already. That if one more heavy thing gets added I might break. I need something light to counteract that. Fantasy books, romance novels, and ya books make that burden a little lighter and easier to bear. It’s why I read. To get away from everything I have to do everyday. So no I don’t want to read books about marriages, mortgages, and work problems. With custody battles, court, or heavy issues. I read for enjoyment, and those are not things I enjoy in life or reading about.
Gravity-Defying Land Art by Cornelia Konrads
German artist creates mind-bending site-specific installations in public spaces, sculpture parks and private gardens around the world. Her work is frequently punctuated by the illusion of weightlessness, where stacked objects like logs, fences, and doorways appear to be suspended in mid-air, reinforcing their temporary nature as if the installation is beginning to dissolve before your very eyes. One of her more recent sculptures, Schleudersitz is an enormous slingshot made from a common park bench, and you can get a great idea of what it might be like to sit inside it with this interactive 360 degree view.
I don’t know why exactly, but this really feels very Raven-boys-esque to me.
Ok, some of you have asked me this question so I’m going to give you a more detailed answer!!
Let’s take a look at my biochemistry notes for example:
I write the titles in blue, and the subtitles in another shade of blue. I use a simple pilot or blue bic byro to write down my notes and a black pen to write titles or important things. As you can see, I color code too, using pens and highlighters of the same color.
I write tables and flow charts in different colored pages and then I glue them to my notebooks, so they stand out when I open my notebooks.
I use lots of keys to talk about the reaction that is beside it: regulation methods, isozymes, etc. I write the name of the enzymes in green and highlight it, and I draw an exclamation mark in red for important things that I mustn’t forget, or in this case, for signaling that this specific enzyme is an important regulation point of the biochemical pathway.
As you can see, I use plenty of colored sticky notes to highlight important information, clinical details and clinical applications. I write in red important things that are keys to remember general information about the chemical pathway or regulation strategies.
Same here: More sticky notes, more highlighting, more color coding.
I also write diagrams of biochemical pathways and color code each enzyme, explaining beside in the same color how that enzyme works.
Sticky notes everywhere!!!!!!!
And more diagrams. As you can see, I also use colors that are commonly used in daily life with some determined significance. For example, in this regulation system, I use a green pen to write which molecules boost the activity of said enzyme, because it means “hey enzyme, you’re ready to work, go ahead” and the red pen for those molecules that block that enzyme, meaning “nope, you can’t work anymore”, as if it was a traffic light!
As for my anatomy notes, let’s take a look too:
I like to draw as much as I can while studying anatomy. This way you’ll have to take a closer look and you’ll realize so many details you weren’t aware of before!!! For example, in this page I used a different colored pen for each cartilage of the larynx! Add sticky notes to remark important details!
More color coding, more draws!
The same as with biochemistry, a plain pen to write down all my notes, color highlighting to relate everything and create a mental image of what you’re studying. Red pen for things you mustn’t forget, like, ever.
More color coding, more sticky notes. I used a different color here for every structure that we can see in the larynx in a patient (also, more sticky notes. Surprised?)
And finally, more color coding for the structures of the larynx: same color for muscles, same color for creases…
So that’s basically it! No gran system to it, to be honest. Just some color coding and, ha, lots of sticky notes.
Hope this was helpful!!!

(Sorry guys, but I've been really sick lately and school's also being a pain. Hopefully I'll be back in month or two!)
I am a massive book nerd and love anything to do with books! I mainly post book quotes and pretty book pictures, as well as the occasional review and other book-related lists.
At the moment, most of the books I read are Young Adult Fiction but I honestly enjoy reading books from basically every genre.
My favourite books and book series (and the fandoms I am active in) are:
• Harry Potter (of course)
• The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater!!
• The Legend Trilogy by Marie Lu!!
• ALL of Melina Marchetta's books (but especially On the Jellicoe Road and the Lumatere Chronicles)
• More. Many, many more books.
I love chatting about books and am always happy when people suggest books for me to read, so please send me a message anytime!! And we can discuss books. Mmmm….
Recently Read and Enjoyed: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, A Corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty, THE DREAM THIEVES by Maggie Stiefvater.
Currently Reading: Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta (re-read. Actually, this is my fourth time re-reading it).
