So this is my blog. I'm not making a diary in some notebook that I keep hidden in my room, because secretly I want people to know what I'm thinking about. This is supposed to be about my daily living habits and recent thoughts and stuff I find that I like. I am going to totally embarrass myself on here, but whatever lol.
Vellum feathers! =)
“She scares the hell out of me and calms my soul at the same time. Maybe that’s what love is—a total contradiction that somehow balances out.
— Tammara Webber, Where You Are (via quotethat)
“At times the world may seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe that there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough. And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may in fact be the first steps of a journey.
— Lemony Snicket (via psych-facts)
Art comparison by character of each Animation Director of Free!
Horiguchi Yukiko’s style is still the most popular among fans in Japan. You can find her stuff in the 5th row, counting from the top.
I personally like the second row one down from the top and the last row. Because the second one down is very graceful. And the last one is extremely expressive in every single panel.
It’s funny that japan likes the fifth row… it seems to me to be the more ‘moe’ row that resembles kyoto animation’s signature style the most xD
However, when I think of the free! art style, the style that I think of, and the style that seems to pull the rest of them together, is the one in the third row from the bottom.
“I miss your smile… but I miss mine more.
— Laurel House
“And you tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake… You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying, and strange, and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love.
— Warsan Shire
“Sometimes people let the same problem make them miserable for years when they could just say, So what. That’s one of my favorite things to say. So what.
— Andy Warhol
“Had I not created my whole world, I would certainly have died in other people’s.
— Anais Nin
Chicago-born Kyle Thompson is a 21-year-old self-trained photographer. Having only practiced photography for two years, his work is technically challenging and aesthetically stunning. His photographs are mostly composed of surreal and bizarre self-portraits, often taking place in empty forests and abandoned homes.
“Life feels like a dream with alternating moments of clarity. It’s hard sometimes to know where I end and the world begins. I think Carl Jung was wrong in there being a true self. It seems there really is no true self. Well, that isn’t true either. We neither have a true self or a nonself. We are a collage of thoughts, experiences, cells, energy, matter, and spirit. Other than the spirit that animates us all, everything is change, everything is in motion, and I can’t say with any certainty that spirit does not change. A body comprised more of bacteria than cells begs the question: Where do we end and the world begins? We are but a thread intimately woven into the fabric of life, draped around the shoulders of mystery itself.
