keep your head in the clouds

24, human, artist/writer, chicago. basically i reblog other people's artwork, fan stuff from fandoms i like, and interesting science things. occasionally i'll post my own art or creative writing or photos from my life.










Rape Escape

  • Easy and very effective
  • Requires nothing but your body
  • Includes attack

Very useful to know, pass and share please.

Worth watching

I don’t mean to impose a personal favour on you guys, but I really would like to ask that everyone who follows me reblog this. 

I don’t think I made it very clear but last month I was sexually assaulted by someone who I thought was my friend (I don’t want to talk about it don’t ask), and it’s… really fucked with my head. 

Had I known this a month ago I would have been able to get away

So, essentially, I’m really pleading with you to reblog this so everyone who follows you doesn’t get stuck in the same position I was with no way out. 

I mean again I don’t want the point of this to be my sob story or whatever but if you could reblog this it would seriously mean a lot 

and im asking to all of my followers who see this post in your dashboard to please press play to this video, you never know when this is gonna be useful, PLEASE DON’T IGNORE IT.

This is one of the first moves I was taught in Krav Maga, and it is one of the most effective.

It took me about a half hour to get down with practice, but once you get it, it’s an intuitive movement.

Please pass this along, it will save lives.


Please reblog this.

Listen/purchase: A Little Irony by Tom Milsom

Back when the world around me moved so unpredictably
A moment never lasted long enough for me to see the reason why
Love never came to me, it moves unscientifically
But now you’re trapped and I can find
A reason now to ask you one more time






Look at my stuff,
Isn’t it NEAT?
Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?
Wouldn’t you think I’m the man,
the man who has science things?

Look at my home
All these chemicals
How many perfections can one condo hold?
Looking around here you think
Sure, he’s got science things!

I’ve got <bleep> and <bleep> a-plenty
I’ve got <bleep>s galore
Oh I’m sorry,
I’ve been censored
But who cares
I want you!

I wanna be where the scientists are
I wanna see, wanna see them study 
Looking through microscopes with their - what do you call em?
oh- EYES

Living with tentacles you can’t study science
Hands are required for precise measuring
Using a telescope to look at the - what’s that word again?

Where the lights float, lights we understand
Up all the way above the Arby’s
Flying around
Wish I could be
Half of Cecilos…



I drew a thing.

Hot Chocolate Oatmeal

I just made some really good oatmeal so (of course) I had to blog about it:

-1/2 cup oatmeal
-1 cup water
-microwave 2 minutes
-stir in 2 tbsp Ovaltine (or whatever hot chocolate mix you got)
-maybe a little chai tea latte mix, why not
-sprinkle with chocolate chip granola and wheat germ
-if I had mini marshmallows those would be in there too
-what the hell, drizzle some caramel sauce on it
-add some milk, or soy/almond/fake milk if that floats your boat
-basically just add whatever you have in the pantry that you like that would go with sweet chocolately oatmeal, this isn’t really an exact recipe anymore

consume as breakfast/dessert/snack



Listeners: Are you suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome? Are you enjoying carpal tunnel syndrome? Are you surprised by carpal tunnel syndrome? Are you enraged by carpal tunnel syndrome? Do you feel a throbbing sadness that you almost cannot stand from carpal tunnel syndrome? Do you feel a bounty of love and appreciation for your fellow human beings traveling through this confusing and finite lifetime with you from carpal tunnel syndrome? Do you get sexually aroused by carpal tunnel syndrome? That would be weird.

Here are some of the better pics I took of the 2nd Anniversary live show (I was in the back row of the balcony but it was still so worth it). Didn’t post them until now because I wasn’t sure how spoilery they’d be!





Built between 1712 and 1732, the Long Room at Trinity College’s Old Library holds the collection’s 200,000 oldest books. The enormous collection housed in the long room includes a rare copy of the 1916 Proclamation of the Irish Republic and the 15th-century wooden harp in the library which is the model for the emblem of Ireland. 

The distinctive and beautiful barrel ceiling was added in 1860 to allow space for more works when the existing shelves became full. Marble busts of famous philosophers and writers line the central walkway of the nearly 200-foot-long room, created by sculptor Peter Schemakers beginning in 1743.

I’ve been here before!

I made this thing. I found the pattern here but I only had smaller needles (size 4 double pointed), so it only fits my water bottle. Also I didn’t feel like going out and buying new yarn so just used a couple shades of purple I already had in my stash. Nevertheless I like the way it turned out!



You think “I should get out of the city more”.  You think “Where is he?  What is he doing?”  You think “I am so high.”  You think, “Nature is really big.”  Make a list of your three favorite parts of his body.  You think “I should go swimming— No!  I shouldn’t.”  You think “Maybe I’ll just….”
