Talking about Loki
i’m so upset
I just realized that the reason ghosts say Boo! is because it’s a latin verb
they’re literally saying ‘I alarm/I am alarming/I do alarm!!
if it comes from the latin word, they’re actually saying “I’M YELLING!” which is even cuter
do they speak latin because it’s a dead language
astronomers got tired after watching the moon go around the earth for 24 hours so they decided to call it a day
she’s literally jesus with mascara and I love it

YES YES YES
Well, I have said this in the past, so I hope i don’t bore you by repeating it, but I think that we live or die under the tyranny of perfection. Socially, we are pushed towards being perfect. Physically, beautiful to conform to standards that are cruel and uncommon, to behave and lead our lives in a certain way, to demonstrate to the world that we are happy and healthy and all full of sunshine. We are told to always smile and never sweat, by multiple commercials of shampoo or beer.
And I feel that the most achievable goal of our lives is to have the freedom that imperfection gives us.
And there is no better patron saint of imperfection than a monster.
We will try really hard to be angels, but I think that a balanced, sane life is to accept the monstrosity in ourselves and others as part of what being human is. Imperfection, the acceptance of imperfection, leads to tolerance and liberates us from social models that I find horrible and oppressive.
it infuriates me when people tell me “lifes too short to not forgive people!” like NO lifes too short for me to continually allow abusive and manipulative behavior in my life and live in a constant state of anxiety bc I want to be “nice” or whatever
"The wonderful thing about Egyptian art is its immense dignity and restraint. Only the ancient Egyptians could have produced it. A sense of the sacred was in their everyday lives and in their art. It was made with eternity in mind."
— Stuart Graham as Howard Carter, The Search for Tutankhamun (2005)
Every time I look at a piece of ancient Egyptian art I can’t help wondering about the artists who created it and the people who were surrounded by it. Who were they? What were their lives like? It is this curiosity that often inspires me and influences my work and it is this curiosity that is one of the main reasons to why I wish to study egyptology … :-)
