So I'm aware very few people to none have read the most recent story "Awoken" but should I continue it? And if not can you all help me and give me suggestions.. I'm really struggling with ideas right now.
The #'s will tell you the plots/themes stories can be! And if you think of anything else feel free to Ask!
Atom.... loses track of a lot of things, nowadays. Pencils and nails disappear into forgotten corners of his workshop. Receipts and to-do lists languish in the labyrinth of his file cabinet. Urgent business, if not immediately noted down on the appropriate calendar app, will likely go unattended. New names slip from his grasping hands like some kind of cartoon roadrunner. Faces....
Well, he’s pretty sure he can remember faces. Which is why he’s pretty sure he doesn’t know this guy. He’s even more sure after stringing him along for a good hour, waiting for him to be the first one to start the conversation. But no. This is some kind of stalker. Or, maybe he’s an incredibly underfunded private investigator. The coat matches, but it’s a bit too unwashed to be worn by a well-funded private investigator.
do y' know who y' are?
The mask slips. For half a second, the shadow of a grin always present on Atom’s face vanishes. For that moment, his eyes could be that of an undead corpse, stumbling through the cemetery in search of its soul, which has since moved on without it. It’s an ill-fitting metaphor; Atom is very much in possession of a soul. But for a moment, one might believe otherwise.
Quickly, the facade is reinstated. The corners of his mouth once again flirt with the appearance of a smirk, and his eyes look, for lack of a better word, normal.
“What an odd question,” Atom replies, with a hint of amusement. “From an odd stranger. Surely you’re not in America solely to ask lil’ ol’ me a question of philosophy. Can I ask what business you might have over on this side of the Atlantic?” He doesn’t sound threatening, per se, but no one in their right mind would talk to a presumed stalker with such an easy smile.
i think i kinda want to say screw it to my ever tightening reading schedule and finally watch a musical tonight
#i havent watched a new musical #not counting starkid #in literally THREE. YEARS. #which shows my mental health post-graduation 100% it's awful #but i really want to #i think im gonna watch mean girls #to get into the stride #but i /do/ need to finish up like 7 or 8 more books as quickly as possible AND review them and my backlog #so i definitely have good reason for the schedule #but uggggggh yknow #if i can start this book before 8:30 i might be able to do both who knows #the real question is will i be all media'd out if i did that #personal
#i cant believe this i completely erased the whole interview from my mind bc i felt like it went horrible??? #and they chose me? i rambled about my fav isotope of hydrogen for a whole minute. which wasn't even relevant to the question and they still?
I applied for a job and heard back from them, but I gotta prepare two presentations for the interview next week. The first one, a 15 minute presentation about my experiences with statistical modelling, should not be too hard. Just effort.
But the second presentation is on their project. They literally want me to give them a 15 minute presentation where I present the results of a comparative study of statistical methods best applicable to their project. They literally want me to do a literature search and review and present that.
I'm so fucking tired give me a break.
#I don't even know what their research question is or what their data looks like #so idk what i'm gonna do #15 minutes isn't too long #so I guess I'll just talk about the models that I didn't talk about in my first 15 minute presentation idk man #fuck this tho #idek if I want this job but I haven't heard back from the other one and it's been over 1 month
#her names yess and shes a teacher #shes the girl i was going out with beggining last year #we did end up going out starting this year and i popped the question like 2 weeks ago #shes dorkier than me #and patient and sweet #and shes rlly cute too! #we did it bois
Question; what counts as a T-Rex anyways? At what point in it's thousands of years of existence was the modern known 'T-Rex' at the most... erm, T-Rex-ish existence, and least like it's cousins and ancestors and to-be children species?
#palentology#serious question #I think about this every time people talk about 'accuracy' with dinosaurs #like #we don't actually know for a fact what the animals look like #but also when do these animals become... erm... a speices #and how far from this do they have to go to be a different animal #because like #dogs are fucking crazy varied #at what point are they a different animal
“Heeehhh--- this one was interesting-desu! The quiz was interesting and the results are just as fascinating!”
TENDERNESS You are not afraid of the sufferings and sorrows of other people, even when they are acted out in unappealing ways. Beneath even defensiveness and self-righteous behaviour, you know that deep down people need nurturing and consolation. One danger is being naive about people’s dark sides. But at your best you know you can be mean yourself, which helps you to sympathise. You bring strength and forgiveness where other people might panic.
NEEDINESS Being affirmed and nurtured by others is a central requirement for you to feel safe. This means you can be slow to warm up to other people, which is difficult because what you most need from them is their warmth. Yet you know how to be vulnerable: to let down your defences and accept that you need another person. This lack of pretence is a valuable trait, and ultimately more endearing than the macho efforts others make to deny their childlike sides.
REVERENCE One part of you dreams of giving yourself up – perhaps just for a while – to a hero or mentor. In the right circumstances you can flourish by letting go of your ego. In your inner life, reverence plays out as a willing submission to your own conscience. In the outside world, you might get frustrated searching for something worth believing in – a country, a person, a company – but you will always be open to feeling respect, admiration and wonder.
SENSITIVITY You have delicate, sensitive perceptions; you can be deeply moved by appearances – the right light in a room, or good food, or the texture of a piece of clothing. Expressive, intelligent language has a powerful hold on you; your mind works better when it is inspired and provoked by vivid imagery. It can be sad to live in a world which is often so ugly and not properly looked after. But you know that things can be otherwise, and you have the ability to appreciate the world at its best.
PLAYFULNESS You are good at seeing what’s funny, at relaxing and finding the pleasure of the moment. Play is random, whimsical, fantasy-driven behaviour which releases internal tension. Because it is detached from some pressures it allows you to act on weirder, perhaps neglected, parts of yourself. The downside is that it is no help in sticking with things that are not much fun but which need to be addressed. So it is well complemented by its opposite, Stoicism.
