Hello tumblr! I have a new tumblr!
A new stage in my life requires a new blog, so I made a new one. :) Check me out on Working Progress. You can check some of my old posts here, but I highly doubt I’m going to be posting here anymore.
I’ve had this tumblr for almost two years now.
My original concept for this tumblr was to publish at least one post a day, regardless of what it was (reblogged or original) and I have to say I was quite successful for a month or so, but it never really ended up the way I wanted it to. The excuses for why vary: not enough time, too much work, not feeling it, among others.
To think, two years have passed and so much has changed.
I think after a few contemplative moments I’ve come to realize that with change comes new beginnings. Leaving your old life behind for a new one… or rather, leaving behind the bad habits of your old life to make way for better things to come.
Which is what brings me to this conclusion:
Because I am graduating high school and moving on to a new phase in my life, it’s time to shed old habits of the past. I don’t want to put off things that I love doing: I don’t want to do something because I feel I’m obligated to do it, but because I truly and deeply gain fulfillment from doing it (That, or just because I want to.); AND when I do something, I’ll make sure to use all my efforts into making it the best thing I’ve ever done.
And with this new inclination to life, I believe it’s time to shed the old skin of this tumblr for a new one.
So good bye, A Blog A Day; and hello, future tumblr.
1000 reblogs = $10
10000 reblogs = $100 .. and so on
Okay, we know, we know, it’s shameless self promotion. We will be using the increased traffic from our website to fund this donation. We will be sending Red Cross the check for the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami.
UPDATE: We forgot to add what we’d do if someone were to “like” the post. We will combine the reblogs and likes we got from our last post along with the reblogs and likes we get from this post.
We wish we can donate more, but it’s all we can handle. If you would like to donate directly to the cause, please click here.
We will be donating 1 cent per every reblog, 1 cent for every like and 5 cents per every new follower we get. We’ll be sending the check to American Red Cross.
Email us at what@viaSQUARED.com for any questions regarding this.
For EVERY REBLOG I will donate ₤0.05 to the GlobalGiving.org Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund
On the 19th March 2011 I will tally up all the reblogs and calculate a total to be donated.
100 Reblogs = ₤5.00
1000 Reblogs = ₤50.00
10,000 Reblogs = ₤500.00
and so on…

My favorite Disney princess. I love this movie so much because of the intricate gothic style backgrounds and the story, but most especially THIS SCENE.
“Also known as frozen smoke, Aerogel is the world’s lowest density solid, clocking in at 96% air. It’s basically just a gel made from silicon, except all the liquid has been taken out and replaced with gas instead. If you hold a small piece in your hand, it’s practically impossible to either see or feel, but if you poke it, it’s like styrofoam.
Aerogel isn’t just neat, it’s useful. It supports up to 4,000 times its own weight and can apparently withstand a direct blast from two pounds of dynamite. It’s also the best insulator in existence, which is why we don’t have Aerogel jackets: it works so well that people were complaining about overheating on Mt. Everest.”
IT’S LIKE CATCHING SMOKE.
IT’S LIKE CATCHING SMOKE WITH YOUR BARE HANDS.
I just audibly what the fuck’d.
It only works with mirrors.
