School makes me so dysphoric seeing all these people around me and wanting to look like them. Wanting to have that body and wear those clothes and not be judged. I wore tights under my pants because they feel so soft and nice and female, but all it does is make me realise how much crotch space pants have. It’s like it’s assumes all guys have 10 inch dick that they just can’t keep in their pants. I mean there’s so much space and why do I need it? All I want is to wear my boobs to school and a dress or a skirt AND FALL WEATHER IS COMING and I’m seeing all the boots and they’re just so fucking pretty I want nice things on my feet TOOOOOO
Part of me wants to work really hard in college and change the world.
Part of me wants to not work hard at all and marry some rich guy.
And the other 97% of me just wants to sleep.

Sorry, I just decided to put it all under read more so it’s not taking up a lot of space on your dash… I’ve also added two more and going to be working on more before Halloween comes up so I hope to finish it before then!
I’m glad to inform you if you haven’t followed my art blog, I actually have been drawing more panels and will be doing that until I get it done. Hopefully in time for Halloween!!
Language of Life: Levy Walk
David Sims from the UK’s Marine Biological Association found that many large marine predators use a search strategy called a ‘Levy walk’. The strategy is formally described by a mathematical equation, but in simple terms, it means that an animal makes several short moves in its search for food, interspersed with a few long ones. The longer the ‘step’, the more infrequent they are.
In practice, using a Levy walk means that searching a smaller area thoroughly before making a long journey to a completely new one, rather than gradually combing across the ocean. It’s similar to someone looking for their keys by focusing on specific corners of a room at a time.
Sims believes that the predators use this strategy because it’s tailored to the distribution of their prey, such as krill, which tends to be highly concentrated in specific areas and scarce over long distances. With patterns like these, a Levy walk gives a hunter a greater chance of blindly stumbling across some prey than a purely random search.
