perfection and it's relative worth
perfection is an ideal, a hope for a better future that you may never find. and if you do, it will last only as long as reality does not come trespassing but it will, inevitably and there is no escaping that. it is a dream half-forgotten, your hands ever grasping, ever missing but the most tender and fragile of it’s trailing ends… and yet, if only for those blessed moments when all...

Kate Heightemeyer: "You think she regretted it, in the end?"
Did she? For all intents and purposes, the alternate Elizabeth had been herself. Would she have done the same?
Elizabeth Weir: "No and I would have done it too."
Saving Atlantis, this glorious city, the one hope of Pegasus to defeat the Wraith. It is a dream worth saving, worth sacrificing one's life for. It doesn't mean that she wants to die, if there's another option. The unhesitating, unbreakable notion that, of course, she would give her life if it means keeping her people and Atlantis safe, is, at once, terrifying and exhilarating both. She never imagined herself capable of that before. There is bravery in that concept; a bravery she never thought she could possess.

I love suburbia not for what it is, but for what it could be. While most other houses on my street have grass lawns, my yard sprouts zucchinis, tomatoes, pomegranates, kale, spinach, apples, figs, guavas, almonds, garlic, onion, strawberries, and more. Over 500 plant species all in all. We grow m…
the future of prosthetics if medicine progresses...
i was just thinking that in the future as our medical and engineering knowledge advances, that one day, losing a limb wouldn’t be that much of a hindrance. (except for the head of course, there aren’t a lot of things you can do without a head.) like, as prosthetics get more and more advanced and are more readily available to the public, i can well imagine a little girl switching out...

the one good thing (though there are many, many good things) about summer? the fact that when you’re trying to sneak out of the house, the door doesn’t creak—it glides right open. and no one hears you tip-toeing out. the winter though? you’re fucked.
