Imagine quirky description of boring old me over here. C'mon, I know you can do it. The mind is a wondrous place.

100,000 notes and I wonder how many people realise this line was improvised by a 7 year old

For those that don’t know, this is a show called Outnumbered. A British show where the child actors are only given guidelines not actual lines so they say whatever feels natural for them to say in the scene. I think only the oldest brother has actual lines. If I remember correctly this girl was the youngest person in the country to ever win a comedy award.

historical-nonfiction:

Egyptian blue — a bright blue crystalline substance — is believed to be the first unnatural pigment in human history. Ancient Egyptians used a rare mineral, cuprorivaite, as inspiration for the color. Cuprorivaite was so rare searching and mining for it was impossible. Instead, using advanced chemistry for the time, Egyptians manufactured the color. It was made by mixing calcium compound (typically calcium carbonate), a copper-containing compound (metal filings or malachite), silica sand and soda or potash as a flux, then heating to between 850-950 C.

Egyptian blue was widely used in ancient times as a pigment in painting, such as in wall paintings, tombs and mummies’ coffins, and as a ceramic glaze known as Egyptian faience.  Its use spread throughout Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, and the far reaches of the Roman Empire. It was often used as a substitute for lapis lazuli, an extremely expensive and rare mineral sourced in Afghanistan. After the decline of the Roman Empire, though, Egyptian Blue quickly disappeared from use.

We had to create a self portrait for class that didn’t include our physical selves… I chose to really make use of self reflection with this project.
As an ISFJ/Virgo personality I tend to be very organized, analytical and bottle up my emotions.
I wanted to make use of these jars and display my experiences dealing with both depression (the black bottle) and anxiety (the cracked bottle), however keep them slightly out of focus- I may still be dealing with these issues, they may still affect my life daily but they are no longer at the forefront of my life, I am in recovery and I am winning. 
Then there’s the jar with glitter, I had different pictures where all three jars were standing up in order and all bottled up, but it felt wrong. I decided to knock this one over and have the contents spill out, though I still experience the downfalls of depression and anxiety, it no longer inhibits me from being brave and showing my true colours and sharing my love for the world and everyone around me- I am optimistic, I am radiant, I am free.

“When Rainn’s on the exercise ball bouncing up and down, and I come over and I stab it with the scissors. In every other take we did, I stabbed it and it just slowly goes down. And the camera angle was that he just slowly ducked behind the thing and it was incredible. On the last take they were like “do one more.” And I remember going over and I went “boom”! And I must have hit the seam or something. And it exploded. He hit the ground as hard as I’ve ever seen a human hit the ground. If you go back and watch that episode, I just dive out because I am crying laughing.” - John Krasinski
