HOW CAN WE BE HAPPY ?
Once a group of 50 people was attending a seminar.
Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each one a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.
At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon.
Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it.
Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.
The speaker began— exactly this is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.
Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness.
And this is the purpose of human life.
Tadaaaaaa~ first character !
Ok, so she’s named Ditzah, wich is an hebrew name (meaning “joy”). And she is a Gorgon ! She is 16 and scales have started to take a good part of her body (she has a lot on her legs).
Growing scales doesn’t hurt that much because it’s a very slow process, but god it scratches ! The areas of her skin wich are slowly turning into scales tend to be red due to the scratching but also the fact that it’s growing.
Her little snakes tend to have their own mind at the beginning, it takes a lot of pratice to have control of them (wich is why she goes to a support group for gorgons, with yoga and a lot of relaxation) but in the end they’ll be a complete part of herself ! They to bite off her hair, making it shorter and shorter and slowly making place for her coming snakes. But with no control over them, they tend to also bite things that are near, like her friends and people on the bus. Awkward yea. They also sotimes keep her awake at night, poking her face tehehe
She has that kind of very peppy perosnnality, always up for everything, jogging on saturday mornings, excited about a new chapter in science !
I hope you like her. :3 ♥
(The first time I drew her I had these beautifules ladies in mind and decided to found that photo again while drawing this !)
Set in a 1920’s New York where Prohibition outlaws the brewing of spells, the story follows Vincent Byrde, a hard-boiled PI who struggles with a magic curse. After a long career hunting magic bootleggers, Vincent has become obsessed with the frustrating case of Jimmy Wonder: a young, up-and-coming spellrunner who keeps slipping out of the hands of the law. Their dance takes a complicated turn when Kitty Lovelace — well-known to be Jimmy’s main girl — walks out on Wonder and into Vincent’s life.

It’s a species of jumping spider, Simaetha sp., found in the Sraburi Province of Thailand. Again, not sure of the exact species so not much info on this guy except that these particular fellows were only 4mm in length.

Ellen Page arrives at the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscars Party
Noooo. Pocket scarf is bad idea. She looks like a private school logo from a distance.
It’s a big year for Ellen Page. First she comes out of the closet, then her Hogwarts letter arrives.
I think she looks awesome.
