A friend of mine made me this cool necklace for my birthday. She used some braided rope, a keyring, and these interesting things that are apparently used for fishing. They’re sort of like safety pins in that you pop one end out of the clasp and hang something on it like keys or whatever else. It’s very practical and I think it looks pretty cool. It also makes the nicest high, soft tinkling.

Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

But as the episode progressed, he saw something in her that was sort of like a little candlelight at the end of a dark tunnel. And she was saying that there are good people in the world and there are reasons to go on and don’t give up hope. I think she was that little glimmer of hope for him. And I think that’s what he was attracted to.

If he misconstrued those feelings as possibly, like, a crush, then that’s even better! But I don’t think he went in there like “Hey, me and you!” I think he kind-of, like, “There’s something good in you and I haven’t seen anything good in forever.” It’s being, like, lost in the woods for miles and miles and starving and finding an apple tree with an apple on it, you know? It’s like, there’s something good out there and maybe that’s you. And maybe you can show me whatever you know and you can make Daryl have those hopeful feelings, too.

And I think some might have interpreted that as “He thinks you’re cute” or “He wants to be with you” but it was deeper than that, to be honest.” +Norman Reedus

Honestly, there’s no point in even trying to date until I can be reasonably sure that sexual contact will not send me into a panic attack. Cause let’s be real, nobody really wants to date some ugly fat girl with a shitty personality if he doesn’t even have a chance of getting laid. But it still kinda sucks to be almost 22 years old and never have so much as held hands with a dude. This should probably be under a read more but I’m still slightly intoxicated so I don’t really care so much. 

Marry, Fuck, Kiss, Cuddle, Get Drunk With send me FIVE names.

A thing that Green Day and Henry Rollins (and most white punk guys tbh) share is that they never emotionally matured past like age 18 because they were in an environment that rewarded their immature but passionate anger and negativity, so now you’ve got a whole generation of 40 year old white punks who are just embarrassments in everything they do
