being a human is so weird
holding hands is my favorite thing like there’s just something so comforting about having proof of someone’s existence right there in your hand and when you hear them getting sad u can hold it a little tighter to remind them that you’re there and it’s just really sweet
I googled ‘upside down cats’ and I am the farthest thing from disappointed
I hear my mom shrieking downstairs, shouting up to me about “THE CATS! THE CATS!”
I run downstairs, thinking someone has died or something and see THIS:
I FEEL LIKE I NEED TO PUNCH SOMETHING TO GET OVER THE ADORABLENESS
I GET SO EXCITED WHEN ALL FOUR OF MY CATS ARE IN THE SAME ROOM OMG
God I just want sex
SO WE MEET AGAIN
You need to live closer
oH MY GOD
I feel like this should be pretty self-explanatory. I’m drawing these for a zine at my college (and they have a tumblr! lips-appstate.tumblr.com!), but submissions are due today, so they’re a bit more rushed than I would have liked.
I tried to be inclusive and not-shitty. Hopefully I succeeded at that. There are more of these I’d like to draw, but like I said, time limitations :P
"DRIFT PLANKTON": Phaeocystis globosa washed up on the beach
- Often mistaken for pollution, foam found on beaches is the decaying remains of vast colonies of phytoplankton commonly known as foam algae.
- Foam algae is Phaeocystis globosa - a single-celled organism that forms really large colonies as a result of being bound together with a jelly-like substance.
- Decaying phytoplankton emits a gas called dimethyl sulfide, which is responsible for the characteristic “smell of the sea” and plays a role in cloud formation.
