Spirit Airline check in is widely acknowledged to be among the best budget carriers in the United States and is recognized to offer one of the cheapest flight services to scores of travelers every day. Suppose you are making Spirit Airlines reservations for your next trip.
random thought: (pre-death) Wei Wuxian doesn’t believe or know of Lan Wangji’s feelings for him because he subconsciously doesn’t believe anyone can or will love him romantically/actually care for him due to deep-seated insecurity and low self esteem
during and after the sunshot campaign he was measured for what he can do - the same thing that brought him so much praise for its role in bringing down Wen Ruohan was demonised after the campaign ended (if only for the greed of the surviving sects wanting that power for themselves)
but he’s so cocky and confident - confidence in his skills and what he can do does not translate to a greater sense of self worth, especially when you’ve spent your life being told you’re the son of a servant and put down constantly in a society where hierarchy is so important - constantly told to know his place (which is supposed to be behind Jiang Cheng, supporting him, the heir to Lotus Pier, never higher than that) and willingly he constantly clipped his wings, trying his best to be what he’s supposed to be, because if they didn’t bring him back, where would he be? dead probably, or caught up in the unsavoury side of town- as street urchins are wont to end up, so he is grateful
I’m off to bed early bc I’m pretty tired I got like a starter done but not much 🙃 maybe when I go on my lunch break I’ll write some more but HERE’S MY GAMEBOY!! I love it maybe on my day off or when I can I’ll play on it

i donated blood today and it was really hot and sunny outside and people were keeling over left and right while i just sat there, chillin, completely fine, even hours later, after cycling home (not supposed to do that) and standing for a prolonged period (not supposed to do that)
today i learned: my circulatory system seems to be quite stable
i woke up more than an hour early to get ready for flight
i DO NOT WANT TO GOOOOO
No progress pictures today, sorry! I got all the fabric cut out except the gills for the axolotl and the larger part of the eye appliques sewn on, but today’s the first bad smoke day of the year* so I spent some time packing my emergency evacuation bag and making a list in case I have to evacuate** instead of sewing *none of the fires are anywhere near me, it’s just a trick of the wind and the geography that’s trapping the smoke near where I live **not really because of current fires, it’s just a good idea to have an evacuation plan and I have enough emergency meds I absolutely must take with me that I needed to make sure they were packed, in date, etc etc
Here is a mock-up/inspiration I finally made recently (had this idea bouncing around for a while... I think I bought packs of embroidery floss like... sometime... a long time ago....) from bits and pieces I cribbed off goog images (the bg is from etsy) to get an idea of if it would look good/if I like it, and to act as a sort of springing off point for eventually drawing up and actual “pattern” I might attempt to stitch. quote is c/o @kayvsworld from just-last-week-slash-literal-ages-ago time is flux as we know :’)
flora used is (roughly top to bottom?): wormwood (bitter, absinthe, artemisia), borage (directness, bluntness), thistle (warning, endurance), pansy (free thinking, consideration), gladiolus (integrity, strength of character, sword), sage (sage) (wisdom, calming, protection)
I tried to include some related positive meanings too, like the gladiolus and pansy and sage, and not just negative ones to like balance it out.
I could pretend I’m posting this in a vain hope it will encourage me to actually do the thing, but I’m not so naive as to think me will bow to that kind of extortion instead of just laying flat, so I guess I’m posting it to get it out into the world and maybe so I can get some verbal praise :’) (*in the voice of ‘moisturize me’* validate me)
I did start transferring the circle to some fabric before I even drew up the final thing before I realized I should. probably iron it. so I stopped lmao. also not convinced canvas IS the way to go, since it seems a bit thick, actually (the hoop was STRAINING to contain it). But my alternative is muslin, which is probably a bit thin... We’ll see.
