my ultimate goal is to be at peace with myself, eliminate toxic feelings and elements and energies from my life, unlearn negative and harmful practices and thought patterns, stop checking for people that don’t check for me, create a space for myself that is nurturing for growth so that i may generate loving energy for myself and for others, nourish my spirit and balance my energies, i have big dreams and i deserve to live a life i love and let that love radiate
I wish I could just put this on facebook so people would stop asking me what i’m doing with all my “free time.”
Vesalius Spot the Differences Game!
Anyone want to play a game? The top image is the title page from the 1543 first edition of Andreas Vesalius’ De humani corporis fabrica. The bottom image is from the 1555 second edition.
There are a few differences between the two. Can you spot them?
OMG I have never seen these two next to each other. The second illustration was completely remade. The second lacks many details of the first, like the scalloped edge of the figure in the front left, is plain in the second. Beards are shorter(especially the face under the banner) Vesalius (I’m assuming we are meant to think is is he, stroking those intestines) his face looks completely different. The figure clutching the column on the left is naked vs clothed… Anyway Thank you so much for posting these!
do u ever put on a shirt and look in the mirror and go
"no. this does not represent the full potential of my boobs"
"MY BOOBS CAN LOOK MORE IMPRESSIVE THAN THIS"
HAHA! Omg this was me EVERY TIME I got dressed to go out back when I lived in Madison. Like, I would get dressed, and then be like no- this top requires more ammunition *pulls out the SUPER BRA* aka the seriously padded pushup to hoist my breasts out of any outfit.

(Sorry they aren’t organized very well.)
Ugh, every time that “witchy aesthetics” post blows up it’s a blessing and curse to use xkit and see all the tags.
A chunk of them are all “but I am a witch” You know what, so am I. You know, the person who actually posted that, ya I’m a witch.
Another chunk are all “I wish I could dress like that but I’m poor” Um, I OP here. I dress out of free boxes and thrift stores and half my clothes have holes in them. Dressing like a creature that crawled out of a fores is pretty cheap, actually.
Then another chunk is all “I am a witch and witchcraft is my religion and it sort of makes me made that people are appropriating my religion” *sigh* Hi, I am a witch too and you and your religion doesn’t own witchcraft. Also, I really need all these jars. Like, before I had all these jars I just had piles of things and my pockets were full of acorns.
knock it off!
Teehee! Omg this is why I have to sew extra pockets into my skirts.
