How long do you guys take to finish a book? I legit take forever. Unless it’s a biography or something of that nature, I tend to be a slow reader…idk why.
Maybe it’s because I savor the words maybe it’s because I get wrapped up in my own aesthetic fantasy lol..who knows
My knees are aching.
Hey Tumblr! Got a question for Eddie Redmayne about his new film The Aeronauts? Then do we have great news for you! We’re doing an Answer Time with him on December 6th at 12pm EST/9am PST. Ask away and he might just answer! Amazon Studios will release The Aeronauts in theaters on December 6th.
I remember this guy when he barely had any recognition in America. Look at him now… Finally getting all the attention he deserves. Like Minds was my favorite movie at the time. I literally knew all the lines. Hah
What I’m doing right now.
I’ve been seeing a lot of them popping up as of late. Which is weird because I didn’t know that was allowed ?…but great because I’m learning things.
Lynette Yoder taught me that they like a lot of rich comfort foods (I sort of thought I picked up on that from all the videos I’ve watched over the years) but she confirmed it. She’s a Mennonite but grew up Amish.
Her channel shows her lifestyle but also sometimes Amish recipes. I’m not super into processed foods (usually just high calorie puddings and treats) but I feel inspired somehow to maybe just amp up my hygge dinners when I’m in my “Amish mode” after studying about the Amish culture.
I did make a rich rice pudding yesterday that was freaking delicious. Not sure if that counts but that’s my way of practicing hygge and I enjoyed it.
So I feel like this isn’t exactly a da topic but we love to study things we’re intrigued by, and I’m super interested in the Amish culture and their whole way of living…it might seem kinda random but I’ve always had this fascination with their background, their history, their lifestyle, crafts, etc etc…so idk maybe I’ll teach you guys some stuff. But I might share things now and then mostly just so I remember and I did recently purchase a book about Amish life so might get into studyblr to keep me inspired ..that’s all for now.
believe me when I say that I will memorize lines from the classics so that I can whip ‘em out at parties and recite like a 19th century Victorian woman who longs to escape from a society that constricts her body so she retaliates by expanding her mind and just straight spitting knowledge and bleeding elegance
Here for this. Low-key same
Dreading being in your one-horse hometown again for 2 weeks; bringing a stack of university library books home; reuniting with your cat who you always swore had magical powers; wool tights and long socks both layered under your skirts; your mom making you hot chocolate, and it tastes like high school; seeing your old friends and feeling bad for them for never getting out of this godforsaken town; reuniting with all your YA on your old room’s bookshelf and getting the urge to reread your former favourites; missing all your scented candles back in your apartment in your university’s town, cedarwood would be perfect right now, but your mom’s got asthma; wondering why your little brother is in trades school if he doesn’t want to go into a trade; the ‘big snow’ that’s only 4 cm, they know nothing about snow here; missing being alone and unaffected by anyone else’s schedule: just you, your hot drink of choice, your books, your classes, and your favourite study spots.

Lust-Inspiring DA Aesthetic
This is how I dress. I get a lot of compliments, but it’s not really traditional DA. Take what you like, leave what you don’t.
- 3/4s sleeves
- Keeping your button ups low
- Satin or rayon are good for button ups with this aesthetic
- Thinner materials for turtlenecks
- Silk slip shirts with any blazer on top
- Cotton camisoles
- Oversized but defining and thinner fabric long-sleeve knits
- Overall: the shirts should make you feel like you’re showing off pretty jewellery: make you shoulders for back and down, more intentional with your wrists and neck.
- Curve-hugging jeans
- Flared/bell-bottom jeans (black)
- Mini skirts (specifically pleated or plaid/checked, avoid buttons or zippers /down the front-middle/)
- Note for mini skirts: wearing opaque nylons and a long blazer is recommended
- Overall: the bottoms should show off your hips and define your waist
- Long blazers
- Long knitted cardigans
- 2 inch-ish block heeled booties in any pattern or style
- Black stilettos
- Thigh-high black boots (with block heel)
- Blundstones (chisel toe, regular is too round)
- Alexandria’ Girly Talk on YouTube has said “jewellery is a way to show the world you think of yourself as important”
- Understated but interesting dangling earrings
- Stoned bracelets
- One or two bangles
- Understated necklaces (small pendant, no more than one focal point)
- Small purses, carry your books in the crook of your elbow
- Smoky “bar” eyes (look at my pics in the personal tag for inspiration)
- 3 options for lips: red, wine stained, or nude (gloss is an option but avoid “bl*w j*b lips”)
- Defined cheekbones
- Colour on cheeks should look like you’ve just come in from the cold in the winter, and just bathed in the sun in the summer
- Focus on fullness rather than length of lashes
- Natural or red nails
- Sultry perfume
- French/Dutch braid(s)
- Pin straight
- If you have naturally curly or wavy hair, enhance and brighten it!
This list is in no way exhaustive. Please feel free to add in reblogs or comments!
Cableknit sweaters, maryjanes, knee high socks, maroon or very dark nails, smelling like macarons and coffee and Jasmine and a hint of tobacco, smelling like new books and old books combined, lobster braids, grey plaid, ribbons, Tweed. That’s all I got
Kent State University
“The Kent State shootings (also known as the May 4 massacre or the Kent State massacre) were the shootings on May 4, 1970 of unarmed college students by members of the Ohio National Guard at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio during a mass protest against the bombing of Cambodia by United States military forces. Twenty-eight guardsmen fired approximately 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis.”
“There was a significant national response to the shootings: hundreds of universities, colleges, and high schools closed throughout the United States due to a student strike of 4 million students, and the event further affected public opinion, at an already socially contentious time, over the role of the United States in the Vietnam War.”
Student strike of 4 million students! Let’s do that again lol
Don’t forget that basically half the country thought the students deserved it…
Another picture from Kent State.
But it was not just Kent State, eleven days later Mississippi Police fired 150 rounds into a dormitory at Jackson State College, killing 2 and wounding 15 black protesters.
Btw half of the students killed at Kent State weren’t even protesting, they were just there
What in the absolute fuck
When the Irish guy has known about this since he was like 8, but it’s suspiciously hard for Americans to learn about…
I literally only know abt this bc my parents are hippies it’s fucked up
I only had a vague idea of what this was and what happened until I did my own research on it.
When I was 21.
