Hey guys, I have an important announcement to make.
I am going to put away Tumblr for a little while. It has been unhealthy for me - I want to be productive at home but I’ll spend two hours just scrolling, and I also get on here way too much at work.
I won’t be gone for too long, I just want to see how much better I feel overall without it. Cleaning up your life and whatnot.
I’m sorry I don’t have a queue set up, but I’m sure you have other things to see!
The dark forest is strictly forbidden to all students
Except for detention
Where you will be forced to wander around when it's darkest and scariest
Doesn't that make so much sense
I'm so good at rules
Ten points to Dumbledore
The now 23-year-old teaching assistant from the U.K. suffers from polycystic ovary sydrome, a condition that can cause excessive hair growth. Middle school hallways aren’t the most accepting of places, so when her beard first appeared as a preteen Kaur was understandably distressed.
"The names that people would call me were things like ‘beardo’ instead of weirdo, ‘sheman,’ ‘shemale’," she said in a video for Barcroft TV. She began waxing twice a week in order to better fit in with the other girls at her school, but the constant scrutiny wore her down. At one point in her teen years she even considered suicide.
But when Kaur turned 16, she was baptized as a Sikh. Following the tenets of her religion, she decided to let her hair grow freely. After briefly caving to pressure from her extended family and shaving the hair off one year later, Kaur vowed never to do so again. “When I’d done it, all I could do was cry because I didn’t feel like myself,” she said. “My brother … hugged me and said I had looked so beautiful with my beard, he didn’t understand why I had done it. It was from that point that I thought I’m never going to remove it ever again.”
one time i fell asleep with a half eaten bag of chips on my chest and while i was napping one of my cats jumped up on me and chewed up the bag and sent the chips flying everywhere and a bit later i woke up completely covered in shredded bag and chip pieces and the last thing i remembered i had started eating some tasty chips so for a short while i was convinced i had blacked out and gone into some sort of uncontrollable chip frenzy
The Guillemot is a seabird that lays its eggs on a bare rock ledge on a cliff face. When an egg is accidentally dislodged, its shape causes it to spin in a tight circle, which prevents it from falling off the ledge into the sea. (Springwatch - BBC)
Can we just take a moment to appreciate how fucking awesome this is?
These eggs no doubt started out like all other avian eggs, but they had the problem of rolling off the cliffs. The eggs that were slightly more oblong tended to roll off the cliffs less, and thus the genes contained in those eggs lived to be passed on. Fast forward a few million years, and BAM tight-circle eggs.

Natural selection is a beautiful thing
British artist Bruce Munro is best known for immersive large-scale light-based installations inspired largely by his interest in shared human experience. Recording ideas and images in sketchbooks has been his practice for over 30 years. By this means he has captured his responses to stimuli such as music, literature, science, and the world around him for reference, reflection, and subject matter. This tendency has been combined with a liking for components and an inventive urge for reuse, coupled with career training in manufacture of light. As a result Munro produces both monumental temporary experiential artworks as well as intimate story-pieces.
His work has been shown at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, the Biennale Kijkduin in Den Hague, the Eden Project in Cornwall, Pratt Institute, New York, the Guggenheim Museum, New York and Waddesdon Manor, Buckinghamshire. In the United States he has found that botanical gardens provide the scale his outdoor pieces require and he has had solo exhibitions at Longwood Gardens, Cheekwood Museum and Gardens, and Franklin Park Conservatory.
