!!! I’m thinking about buying some potting supplies from the local Ace and having a bunch of outdoor plants in pots, so this is actually helpful!

Any idea which of these might grow well in Portland, Oregon? I grew up in Arizona and don’t have a good feel for what grows in wetter climates.

Going by the stuff that will happily grow in our very soggy British garden, most of these should grow just fine, and the anemone, snowdrops and geranium will also definitely cope in shady conditions too (the others might as well but I’m going on what I know we have)

Also! If you can find it, plant Magic Mountain Basil (it’s purple). Our bee friends here in San Diego LOVE it! bonus: you get fresh basil for your home cooked meals P:

Dear Me: Do this thing.
Love, Me

P.S. Taen— you do this thing also. You know, eventually.

I miss my WORLD before it was this. I miss my FRIENDS before they were this. And yes, Tumblr too.

Ok. I’m tired of the typical vampire, werewolf and fairy.I’m also tired of the occidental-centrism in mythology. Hence, this list. 

I tried to included as many cultural variants as I could find and think of. (Unfortunately, I was restricted by language. Some Russian creatures looked very interesting but I don’t speak Russian…) Please, add creatures from your culture when reblogguing (if not already present). It took me a while to gather all those sites but I know it could be more expansive. I intend on periodically editing this list. 

Of note: I did not include specific legendary creatures (Merlin, Pegasus, ect), gods/goddesses/deities and heroes.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS LIST

Reblogging for read-through later~

reblogging this so I can find this post in the future to pad my monsters’ lists. Thanks!

Draw…each…monster. *underlines*

HOLY SHIT THE ADORABLE FUCKING FACES YOU DRAW

If a guy is gay, but is a trans person, making him a woman, does that mean he's straight? I've always been curious how that works but I haven't wanted to ask my trans friends in case I offended them.

If a woman likes men, and only men, she is most likely straight

It is the decent thing to do to call people by their preferred pronouns. :) If you have a guy friend who is trans, you don’t have a guy friend— you have a girl friend. If she likes men, she is a straight (trans) woman. ( Not all trans folks like to add ‘trans’ to themselves. A woman can be a woman OR a transwoman— best thing is to ask!) If they correct you, learn from it, and you’ll both be more comfortable. ^_^

A cup of hot tea really heals ur soul this is true science

Actually, a cup of hot anything in your hands mimics human warmth which is said to have calming properties. So, yes, it’s true. Tea mimics the need for human care, touch, and recognition.

im going to cry im so lonely now and all i have is this fucking cup of leaf water

illucinations:

when i was a child i used to think teens were grown ups and when i was a teen i thought college students were grown ups and now that im a college student im just like what the hell is a grown up anymore

Now that I’m older than college age I’ve concluded that grown ups are a myth.

As a 31 yr old who just bought a house, has a college degree, a full-time job, and a baby on the way, I still don’t quite feel like a grown up. We’re all faking it.

I’m pretty sure you’re faking it too, which is why I’m still confused as hell where that baby is coming from. *readies the tiny Trekkie uniforms just in case*

I came out as a queer during football practice when my coach was like “son, you’re having trouble throwing straight” and I replied “I’m also having trouble being straight”. It got very quiet and then coach just shook his head and said “throw the damn ball, Cooper”

i have been laughing for 3 million years

Goddamnit, Stiles.
