This is maybe one of the greatest wild life phenomenon on the planet ever captured on lens!
In the sea of Cortez, Baja California, Mexico, a massive congregation of Munkiana Devil Rays, relative of manta rays, was captured by a German photographer Florian Schulz, displaying unusual event which he dubbed as the Flight of the Rays.
But as this wonderful perspective shows, for all the individuals leaping out that are visible at sea level, there are many more below the surface. The jaw-dropping image below shows only a quarter of the whole scene.
No one knows why the rays gather like this, whether to mate, herd prey or migrate or just for the sheer joy of being together.

1) Set a specific text tone for the person you’re crushing on so you know exactly when said person contacts you. Because there is potentially nothing worse than waiting all day to hear that little ding that makes your heart drop to the floor, only to check your phone and see it was your buddy Mr. Landlord asking why rent is late. UHH, I DON’T KNOW, MAYBE BECAUSE I’VE BEEN TOO CONSUMED WITH WHETHER OR NOT THIS ASSHAT IS GOING TO TEXT ME, I HAVE PRIORITIES, MAN!

2) For the extra neurotic, turn your phone on silent because you’ve convinced yourself that a watched pot never boils. You’re so cool and collected, you’re just gonna flip that switch and walk away. “Oh, did you text me an hour ago? I hadn’t even noticed! I was too busy at a gala on a yacht with a bunch of other really cool and collected people.”

3) When in reality, you will continue to watch the damn pot and break your lock button from obsessively checking your home screen.

4) Think about ending it all when you are exhausted and use the wrong “your” or “their.” They’re is just no excuse for that. (LOLOL OMG, I hate myself)

5) If your crush ever mentions you look good, make a mental note of every single thing you did that day to achieve whatever look he/she thinks is good. And if you happen to wear your hair the exact same way every time you see them now, that is pure coincidence.

6) While you aren’t going to resort to full blown stalking (yet), you find it perfectly acceptable to tag yourself on Facebook at a location that is somewhat near where you’ve heard your crush is. Success rate that they will notice and say, “hey! I’m around the corner, let’s get together!” is still currently being tested. Results not looking great.

7) Take an extra long route to class because you know you will see your crush from enough of a distance that it doesn’t seem like you planned your entire path just to see them. But you did. And for that 2.5 seconds you see what you think is them (kinda hard to tell, stupid shrubbery obstructing your view), life is pure bliss.

8) Analyze every emoji, the amount of time in between text messages, the number of exclamation points or “hahas,” etc. until you actually have constructed an entirely new conversation in your head. Bonus points for consulting your best friend via screenshots.

9) When he/she mentions their celebrity crush, store that little nugget of information away because it’s going to be your new holy grail. You will learn everything you can about that celebrity in hopes of waking up and magically being Shakira or Jennifer Lawrence if you just watch enough YouTube interviews and makeup tutorials. Anything is possible, if you just believe.

10) If you are lucky enough to have your crushing be a mutual level of liking, don’t worry, there will be plenty of neurosis to uncover in the dating world. Like, so much you might actually be single again really soon. It’s okay, someone out there will love you for the little mess you are.

This piece from Thought Catalog made me cringe and laugh. Because this list is so me.

Haven’t had a crush in ages; then now I have two. Stupid past that came back to haunt me, and exciting, dangerous new conquest.. yeesh

Dream

You know that feeling when you think you’ve gotten everything under control? When you think you’ve forgiven yourself for mistakes made in the past, or found some inner strength to overcome personal hurdles. When living meant looking to the future.

Then suddenly you have that kind of dream and everything kind of goes back to the way it was. Stupid stupid stupid stupid.

It was just a crush. Why do I need to be so deeply affected by it even now? Just a 4-year long intense crush. (A tattoo should mean something, no? A defining aspect of my life)

-

Condominium lift lobbies, chance meeting around pillars; Lift-talk, catching up, hi!; deep conversings require us to push all lift buttons for more time together; get lost stranger, hello stranger. the lift moves sideways? head resting on my left shoulder, arms wrapped around intimate thoughts; confessions. A cafe, paper lanterns warm a purpling and comfortable dusk; a cul-de-sac, again, at the condominium. A flashback? To now? To then? To the had-been and never-will-be. Then, a kiss. Nothing sexual; no obligations, no high. Simply mutual understanding, softly wrapped around innocence.

-

Will I ever have the contentment to not look back?

Astonishing Cinematography Cloud Atlas (2012)

Belief, like fear or love, is forced to be understood as we understand the Theory of Relativty and Principles of Uncertainty: phenomena that determine the course of our lives.
Yesterday, my life was heading in one direction; today, it is headed in another. Yesterday, I believed I would never have done what I’ve done today. These forces that often remake time and space, that can shape and alter who we imagine ourselves to be, begin long before we are born and continue after we perish. Our lives and our choices, like quantum trajectories, are understood moment to moment. At each point of intersection, each encounter suggests a new potential direction.
