"I tried not to think about my life. I did not have any good solid plans for it long-term - no bad plans either, no plans at all - and the lostness of that, compared with the clear ambitions of my friends (marriage, children, law school), sometimes shamed me. Other times in my mind I defended such a condition as morally and intellectually superior - my life was open and ready and free - but that did not make it less lonely"

But really I don’t know myself. Or I thought I did. But no longer

"I realize, for the first time, how very lonely I’ve been, and how comforting the presence of another human being can be."

Suzanne Collins (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

And yet I find myself burning bridges. Maybe I should just delete all my account and disappear. See who gives a shit

After one session of Ghost Recon: Phantoms, one episode of my favorite Suits, and countless fat cats on tumblr and YouTube, I thought I’d feel better.

But no, I don’t feel better. Which is strange, because I shouldn’t be giving a fuck anymore. Consciously I don’t give a fuck, or at least I purposefully try not to care. But in my inner conscience… I dunno man. I dunno. I just hate it so much when this shit gets to me. I don’t think it’s fair.

I’ve accidentally went into the deep end again. I’d known that I’d get hurt. But something just keeps me going there. Fuck this shit. Fuck.

after an apparent attack by a fox, a street cat named bob was found injured and curled up in the hallway outside of a support housing flat in tottenham were james bowen, a recovering heroin addict and homeless busker, was staying. james took the cat in, got him to the rspca, and nursed him back to health using what little drug money he had for antibiotics.

but in the process, bob helped to nurse james back to health as well, giving him a reason to get up in the morning and get clean. since his recovery, bob has refused to leave james side, following him everywhere for the last six years.

thanks to a literary agent who passed him on the streets, james has since written an international bestselling book about his hardships and friendship with bob. “we’re two injured souls looking for someone we can trust,” james says. done in collaboration with the writer garry jenkins from an islington café, the book also attempts to dispel some of the social stigma that goes with homelessness.

For stable flight, fruit flies sense every wing beat

In order to stabilize their flight, fruit flies sense the orientation of their bodies every time they beat their wings – one beat about every 4 milliseconds.

Using computational analyses of free flight, Cornell physicists led by Z. Jane Wang, professor of physics and mechanical and aerospace engineering, made these predictions in a study co-authored by Song Chang, Ph.D. ‘13. The study was published online in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences July 21.

"We started by asking at what time scales a model fruit fly needs to sense and act in order to maintain its balance in air," Wang said. "This led to our conjecture about a fruit fly’s sensing rate, and also a prediction about the function of one of its muscles." 

I remember reading so many of Jane Wang’s papers during my high school research projects. So she’s in Cornell! Awesome!

You can't trust your feelings

onlinecounsellingcollege:

Although we would all like to trust our feelings, they are not a good guide for the ways things really are. They are often fickle and irrational – and not an accurate measure of reality. As you’ve probably discovered:

1. Feelings vary depending on our health. If we’re sick we often feel…
