if you dont have me on facebook you are probably not missing out on any posts but the comment section is important too lmao
I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior. I had a real sword with me, too. I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion. Some woman walks by, with her little girl. The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight. But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.” You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?” And the girl looked around and saw me. I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood. So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?” And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating. Like she thinks I’m going to say no. So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her. And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.” I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.
This post was good but then it got better
You are gonna have people who are going to see the depth from which you approached a song. The fact that you put real emotions into it, and that that’s valuable, and that’s good, and that’s real. And then you’re gonna have people who are gonna say "Oh, you know, like, she just writes songs about her ex-boyfriends…."
I read this out loud to boyfriend and he just went “ohhhhhhhhh”
CEOs all runnin around terrified of blue shells from the homeless

Taken down before we could even communicate our message.
The first one gets me so much.
I overheard two girls talking saying, “She told me she was depressed and has self harmed, and I’m like well if you were really depressed and wanted to kill yourself you would just do it, such a fucking attention seeker.”
Fuck. Right. Off.
When someone is brave enough and trusts you enough to confide in you their problems it is a cry for help.
So help them. Do not condemn them for needing to talk to someone or seeking help from a friend.
It is the hardest thing in the world to open up to someone and talk about your illness and is one of biggest acts of strength.
Talking to someone about your mental illness is not an attention seeking act, it is a sign of strength.
long exposure game strong
See this and tell me there is no life elsewhere in the universe. I dare you.
I’m going to fucking throw up
This blew my mind.
Oh my god.
Circus Tree: Six individual sycamore trees were shaped, bent, and braided to form this.
how the hell do you bend and braid a tree
Actually pretty easy. Trees don’t reject tissue from other trees in the same family. You bend the tree to another tree when it is a sapling, scrape off the bark on both trees where they touch, add some damp sphagnum moss around them to keep everything slightly moist and bind them together.
Then wait a few years- The trees will have grown together.
You can use a similar technique to graft a lemon branch or a lime branch or even both- onto an orange tree and have one tree that has all three fruits.
As a biologist I can clearly state that plants are fucking weird and you should probably be slightly afraid of them.
On that note! At the university (UBC) located in town, the Agriculture students were told by their teacher that a tree flipped upside down would die. So they took an excavator and flipped the tree upside down. And it’s still growing. But the branches are now the roots, and the roots are now these super gnarly looking branches. Be afraid.
But Vi, how can you mention that and NOT post a picture? D:
I am both amazed and horrified of nature as we all should be
