Okay so this top outfit actually happened on the bus the other day it was too cute
And then the second one I dunno, food, I like food presentation
I believe that painting, Studio Ghibli, and chocolate get x8 damage against pesky colds. I’ll be testing this theory shortly.
Figure contorting from its prior form
Underneath the fire of steadfast labor,
Efforts ablaze to brighten with favor
Those who gather ‘round in darkness and storm.
A familiar scent spreads along the warm
Air, a thermal welcome from flame’s waver;
The presence of this signature savor
Diminishes fear of coming deform.
Less than bright but suffering to suffice,
Efforts earnest, unrelenting, but strength
Deteriorates with each waxen drip.
The shadows mounting, prepared to pounce trice,
The sole glow dying to keep them at length,
Bravely burning on despite crumbling wick.
So this turned out okay? I dunno, it started out as 5 minutes of object writing on a candle like weeks ago and was unfinished and I went on trips, so it could be better, I might extra hate it because I’ve been looking at it for so long
Okay so! Swiss trip doodles! The first one’s just kinda a general impression of the village I was in, but I didn’t sit down and draw it exactly. Umbrella because the very first morning it snowed fluffy snow and I was glad for good spring weather the next days BUT an early morning of cute snow is never bad
A lazy doodle of “Pigeon Bread”, which is a cute little bread thing that is traditional for Swiss Easters and it is very cute also
Oh lazy doodle 2, this was the general shape of Swiss fire hydrants and it was funny to me?
Here’s a sketch based on my favorite thing I learned from my historical tour of the village, hopefully I remember this right: There was a king’s head on a pike that people were supposed to bow to as they walked by, but the King was a jerk so people didn’t want to, and a man’s son got in trouble for that, and to get him out he had to try shoot an apple off of his son’s head. He brought three arrows, and used one. When asked why he had three arrows, the man said if he had hit his son with the first, he would have shot the king with the second and then himself with the third.
Ooh hasty three in the morning doodle, I had a carefully rationed supply of mints to help me get through the night with my sore throat and limited water supply.
Okay and the last one, basically my last bus I waited ALL night for didn’t show up bc I think they hecked up scheduling, and I was perturbed but then had a big overpriced cup of coffee, and my last bit of local Swiss Chocolate with breakfast to cope, and then caught the train.
And of course the paper on the wall!
Did I ever say that I made it back? I made it back. I’m a bit sick after long nights of little sleep in less than ideal conditions but it’s good I’ll rest and finally get a poem up and throw my trip doodles onto here
I without fail gain followers any time I’m gone what but welcome
I am 6 hours of bus and 4.5 hours of bus layover away from my home now, Switzerland was amazing, the family I was with bought me a locally-made choco bunny for the Easter hunt and we had family dinners and general cute times
I am running low on battery and my bus should be here soon BUT poem soon trip doodles soon tomorrow tomorrow have a good day everyone!
That’s what most of the people I know who have read the book have said. It’s acknowledged in the book that he is a pretentious douche, but apparently he gets better so we’ll see. The clip is misleading I guess, and that’s what the hullabaloo is for.
Well that’s good. I haven’t read much of John Green but from what else I’ve seen of him he seemed a bit more clever than that, and I have heard that at some schools people have started “not smoking” but when the movie comes out at least that will be sorted out then.
starlightmango said: I guess he’s had the same pack of cigarettes for 3 years now, since he never smokes it, but yeah, I guess the whole point of his character is his pretentiousness? And he works out of it? I don’t know, haven’t read the book.
Well hopefully that’s the case? It’s certainly unfortunate to get the quote out of context in the clip, because it seems presented in a way to seem very deep, but hopefully you’re right about the character development.
Okay okay so there’s a case to be made for this being a bit too negative but
I mean I’ve never read the book and can’t really say if the “metaphor” is indicative of it on the whole? But it certainly had the misfortune of not holding up to critical thought and being now widely distributed and possibly harmful if people are in fact “not smoking” but still supporting tobacco companies
Okay I leave to Switzerland to visit another old friend in roughly….4 hours. I have a 10 hour bus ride, then need to find my way to the airport, then will make it ahh I haven’t seen them since high school.
I will have my laptop and some doodles with me, so I should be able to keep up with y’all, at least with text posts! Have a good Easter weekend everyone if that’s your cuppa and if it’s actually Easter is it Easter
