When I was younger, I had horrible stage fright. I wanted to be a singer but I thought it could never happen because I was so terrified of performing. I couldn’t sing in front of my family and closest friends, despite the fact that I thought I was phenomenally talented. I dreamed of performing in front of huge audiences, but in reality I knew in front of a crowd I would freeze up and be unable to make a single sound. This shyness was present in every part of my life, preventing me from participating in class and making new friends. Somehow, my mom convinced me to start taking voice lessons because she knew music was one of the only things that made me really happy. My voice teacher made me perform in her recitals and audition for various programs, and each time I was slightly less terrified of having everyone’s attention on me, slowly but surely gaining great confidence in my abilities. This confidence was all shattered when I attended the first summer program for which I had auditioned. I was used to being a big fish in a small pond, and I was suddenly thrown in among 70 other extremely talented singers from all across the country. After this experience of being surrounded by so many people who were so much better than me at every aspect of performing, I was convinced that I could never succeed at anything. I almost gave up on singing. I was in a really, really bad place emotionally. That was when I first heard this song, and another one of Memphis May Fire’s songs, Legacy. Listening to those two songs almost nonstop, I started working harder than ever on my music studies. I worked on developing acting skills so that I could cover up my stage fright.
It’s now almost a year later. I’m currently in the process of applying to the country’s top music schools and I know I’m going to be accepted at most of them, because I’ve now managed to develop performing skill. I’m still shy and awkward and have trouble taking compliments, but that all goes away when I’m performing. Making it in the music business is one of the hardest things to do, but I know I need to at least try. I realized that this is my life, this is what I need to do, and I love every last bit it.
I can’t stop staring at this fucking thing
I’m horrified and yet it’s so intriguing
what the fuck
They’re actually completely harmless. I’ve seen people pick them up and put their clawed side down to their faces. They don’t even pinch hard enough to hurt you! The flappy part under there are their gills, the flappy part is how they swim, upside down and with claws doing the back stroke. But on land they’re pretty much wiggling bait for gulls.
tldr - Horseshoe crabs are one of the most pathetic species on this planet even if they look like a facehugger from the Alien franchise wearing a funny hat.
I love horseshoe crabs ;0; totally harmless neato ancient arthopods babs.
All they wanna do is scuttle along the sand and nibble things and occasionally give the boys the piggyback ride of love. <3
yessss, and their eyes are on top of their bodies so in this gif the poor thing was so confused. He’s just like why cant i fucking swim where the fuck is the water.
I keep moving my things and nothing is happening where the hell am I in limbo?! Fuck I’m gonna be eaten don’t just stand there help a Limulidae out here!
Fun facts about these cute little suckers:
1. Those long pointy spikes on their butts aren’t dangerous. If they are out on dry land to have sex and they get flipped over, they use that tail spike to flip themselves back over. This keeps gulls from eating them.
2. They have 10 separate eyes all over the surface of their shells which help them see everything around them at any given time.
3. They have blue blood. This blood is also extracted by scientists and is used to treat diabetes, stomach ulcers and almost every form of cancer.
These little arthropods of the sea are cute and harmless and help save lives. Good on you, horseshoe crab.They’re like harmless spiders of the sea
i think its dumb if drug dealers get sentenced to longer in prison that rapists?? like people ask for drugs but no one asks for rape???
This is the chemical formula for love:
dopamine, seratonin, oxytocin.
It can be easily manufactured in a lab, but overdosing on any of them can cause schizophrenia, extreme paranoia, and insanity.
Let that sink in.
But the thing is male feminists have more impact than female feminists because NOBODY TAKES WOMEN SERIOUSLY AND THE LACK OF SUPPORT FOR THE FEMINIST MOVEMENT IS WHY WE NEED FEMINISM
"We live in a world where losing your phone is more dramatic than losing your virginity"
Um ok but I don’t recall my virginity having 16 GB of memory with all my contacts, music, photos, calendars, and apps or costing over $200.
my phone is an expensive and important material object and not a useless social construct put in place to shame and commodify women
