yall ever just stare at a random particular spot in the distance and maybe unfocus your eyes and tune out of surrounding sounds just as a visual/brain break or is that just me
spending 2006-2008 habitually listening to Fall Out Boy's entire catalogue absolutely kick started my proficiency for literary analysis
one of my colleagues told me i was looking 'resplendent' today and that the colour of my dress suited me well why are women so pure
mentally I know it will be good for me to be getting out of the house and seeing people and being occupied at least some of the time
but I still feel a little indignant that three days of my fortnightly working timetable, nothing I need to do actually requires me to be on site, and I could do my entire day's work from home.

But how many calories are in the Mona Lisa, I’m not planning anything but I’m just asking.
like *if* I “ate” the Mona Lisa how many calories would it “be”.
I didn’t consider portion size either which is silly of me. would the portion determine the caloric value? Or the opposite? And no I’m not talking about the Mona Lisa made into food and then eaten, I’m talking about varnish and oil paint and parchment In. My. Belly.
Okay here’s what we know about the Mona Lisa:
it is made of oil paint on a poplar wood panel, it has a resin varnish.
Did some research, here’s what I’ve figured out thanks to the internet
The wood in question is calculated at 4 calories per gram, the ML is 18 pounds as a whole = 8164 grams= 32,656 calories if that’s just the wood
Now onto the paint and varnish, given we have 1,311 square inches of panel to work with, (this link conceptualizes acrylic paint, which is less thick than oil paint but we’ll roll with it since we don’t have much else to go on.) if 1 ounce of paint will cover 25 square inches, we can surmise that there are 56.7 calories in that square inch, and therefore 74,333.7 calories of paint covering the Mona Lisa.
So your total is:
106,989.7 calories in the whole Mona Lisa, most of it toxic to you
the ‘standard’ness of teenagers driving in america made so much more sense when i found out that driving a manual/stick shift car is not the default there the way it is here
i THINK i have found a driving teacher with the kind of availability i want? they haven't confirmed as they said they usually don't book that far ahead but they expect they will have some slots then. and tbf i don't need as many hours at that time as i had thought bc it's unlikely i will be able to get a test at the end of the summer bc of the covid backlog. fingers crossed!
i have officially been offered a place at every university i have interviewed with!!!!!
for the love of god can one of these driving instructors get back to me with an actually helpful availability/pricing bc i NEED to get my lessons booked in for this summer!!!!!!
i have been feeling so restless and bleh today and it literally all went away the second i just started listening to music through my headphones while i did stuff and went into my own little world. i think sometimes i forget how important music can be to my mood and my sense of wellbeing, it makes such a difference

I finally got around to putting my patches on my denim jacket!!! I did a real slack job on the stitching bc I just wanted to get an idea of placement (no pins in this house for some dang reason) but I'm still really happy about them so I might not even actually iron them on :)
in case my jokes aren't landing, i am british and do not support the existence of a royal family
....so.... we’re still going outside to twerk to montero right
all jokes aside imagine losing your husband and cousin in the same day 😔😪💔
i can't think of any better way to describe this but any others of yall with uteruses/people who menstruate feel kinda self conscious and uncomfortable with yourself when you have a period??? i feel so icky and for what. don't want nobody looking at me, being in my presence, acknowledging my existence, nah.persephone
the responses to this have been helpful and thought provoking actually. i think for me it's ultimately bc i have to use pads atm bc i just got an IUD, and i have always hated that with a passion. i don't feel this way when i can use a cup like i normally would?? it definitely isn't a gender thing for me as i am very much a woman and very much comfortable with my body aligning with the social implications of that, as much as i resent the gender binary/roles.
somebody finally gave the old boy a tangfastic huh
