Time to actually answer something truthfully. The greatest advice, no, the greatest power I can give any of you is this.
It’s OK to say no, even if you’ve already said yes.
This applies to everything.
Sometimes you’ll get shit you just can’t do and that’s fine. It happens to everyone. Just explain why you can’t, apologise and you’ll be fine. No-one can or should force you to do something you don’t want to. You don’t live in North Korea.*
*Please ignore this post if you actually do live in North Korea.
This is why NerdCubed is a beautiful man.
In the dark of the ocean, some animals have evolved to use bioluminescence as a defense. In the animation above, an ostracod, one of the tiny crustaceans seen flitting near the top of the tank, has just been swallowed by a cardinal fish. When threatened, the ostracod ejects two chemicals, luciferin and luciferase, which, when combined, emit light. Because the glow would draw undesirable attention to the cardinal fish, it spits out the ostracod and the glowing liquid and flees. Check out the full video clip over at BBC News. Other crustaceans, including several species of shrimp, also spit out bioluminescent fluids defensively. (Image credit: BBC, source video; via @amyleerobinson)

I want a story about a gay girl disguising herself as a guy to get into an all boy school. When she meets her roommate, he happens to have a banging personality and a very pleasing face. The girl has a sexuality crisis because she starts to fall for the roommate but in reality, the roommate is actually another girl disguised as a guy so that she can attend the school
Please make this happen.

Those people who constantly reblog your stuff but you never really talk:
I want a movie about a little girl, aged like 11-12, going through the struggles of prepubescent girl life, with her entire inner monologue is narrated by Samuel L. Jackson.
Shot of disgruntled adorable little girl.
SLJ: I knew that Susie was a backstabbin’ motherfucker, and if anyone was going to ruin my chances of being Miss Sugar Drop Queen, it was that asshole.
I didn’t know I needed this in my life until now.
This is never not funny

Imagine finding a dragon egg one day, and it hatches in your house and thinks you’re its mom. Then the next morning you wake up and find this mini dragon has gathered all the lose change and shiny objects in your house in a pile, and is gnawing on a nickel. And then when you take it out for walks, it picks up every coin it sees cause its a hoarder. And your house is eventually full of coins. And you are rich. And have a dragon.
I want this. Now. Please someone make me a book.
Anatomy of Songs [wronghands]
I want to make all of these and just call each one the “generic ___ song” :P
Sigh, one of these things. Well, this’ll be…. fun. Thanks Malice!
NAME: Alex, Lokilotus (Loh-Kee-Loh-Tuhs), Loki (Loh-Kee), “Oi You”… Whatever really. :P Oh, and the pronunciations? OLD NORSE- NOT MARVEL, PEOPLE. NOT A FAN OF MARVEL (well, it’s ok I guess). I swear to god if somone calls me “Low-Key” one more time… :P
GENDER: *Shakes Magic 8 Ball* …Hmm… Ask again later… Interesting.
If you don’t do it, it’s cool, whatevs :P
Enjoy that accidental Three-in-one Selfie.
FOOD: ALL OF IT. Except Fish and some other oddities.
MOVIES: Don’t really watch many these days, but my all-time favourite is BEE MOVIE. <3 You could say that I’m rather Apiphilic.
TV SHOWS: Don’t watch TV at all, so instead: My facourite YouTuber is Direwolf20. :D
BANDS: Oh god we’ll be here for hours. Noemi, Dolcenera, Shy’m, Tal, Florence & The Machine, Coldplay…
PLACE: Anywhere I feel loved. :D
SCHOOL SUBJECT: The Sciences. Music. Maths. Drama. TBH Anything but P.E.
ACTOR: Too many to pick.
ACTRESS: Too many to pick.
SIBLINGS: I have None formally, but Soph (2nd person tagged above) is basically my younger sister.
DREAM JOB: Something sciency and teacher-y.
FEARS: Too many to list. Trypanophobia, Aichmophobia and Belonephobia, I sometimes get bouts of Agoraphobia, Anuptaphobia, Autophobia, to name a few.
RELIGION: Atheist, but quite open to people of religion.
TATTOOS: None, and will never have them, but I like looking at them. I think they’re pretty.

reason behind my url: Well, I’m Loki, and this is my Open Diary. As for Lokilotus, it’s my favourite old Norse god (Loki) combined with one of my favourite flowers (the Lotus). And yes, I came up wiith this before Marvel de-norseified the name “Loki”, or at least before it was largely popular. /sighs
# of blogs: One active.
Hope this was interesting. Yeah :P
I always reblog the loneliest whale. I wish they could hear you lovely girl. Your pitch is just out of their range.
You talk and no one ever hears you. Not a sound.
Maybe someday you will find a deaf whale that can’t hear anything and won’t know the difference. Then you can find some happiness.
Good luck whale. I’m still rooting for you.
look, if you’re gonna talk about autistic representation, don’t just talk about nine year old white boys who memorize train schedules and plane models and can recite like 500 digits of pi. talk about the chubby filipino girl who’s terrified to speak up in class but can talk for…
