n. [Brit. wallesia] a condition characterized by scanning faces in a crowd looking for a specific person who would have no reason to be there, which is your brain’s way of checking to see whether they’re still in your life, subconsciously patting its emotional pockets before it leaves for the day.
Today I went out with some good friends to Big Bear Ski resort and I went snowboarding for the first time. It was a really good experience overall, although at first I just couldn’t get the whole turning thing down and I kept wiping out because I didn’t want to hit little kids on the bunny slopes. I finally felt confident to go on a slightly more difficult hill, and I felt inspired (couldn’t turn out of the way fast enough) to try out the ramp, my first air of the day and I landed it. Later in the day, I went up to some of the higher slopes, wiped out a few times, got a rail, some more air, some more snow in my face and a few more bruises on my butt. I’m definitely doing this again soon.
“You know what it’s like getting up every morning feeling hopeless, feeling like the love of your life is waking up with the wrong person? But, at the same time, hoping that she still finds happiness, even if it’s never going to be with you?”—Hitch (2005)
Jellyfish Lake, located on one of the uninhabited Rock islands in Palau. The lake was cut off from the ocean 12,000 years ago, the jellyfish trapped in the lake evolved so that they lost their sting. Now completely harmless, tourists can swim amongst them and come out of the water unscathed.
I would have the biggest panic attack
Imagine if you didn’t know about this and you were like sky diving and when you opened your parachute the wind blew you off course and you had to land in this lake since there’s no clearings around it. You’d probably have a heart attack and die from that before you got out haha.
