Y'know what, I'm enjoying this so: if you got more prompts, shoot them at me!
Home is where the heart is, they say. Saween never quite got why. Her heart is wherever she currently is, throwing herself into whatever advdnture she wants to do at the time, all or nothing.
But her home? That's where her family is. Out on some tiny Island, hidden by druids, the destination of all her letters and parcels. Beetle wings, manticore hair, pretty stones and letter after letter describing her adventures in Grenzdorf. Because she was far from home but that didn't mean that she wasn't in contact with it.
Skills you learn as an MTA that nobody tells you about:
Judge Hb by opacity of the blood if you stick a little skewer in it
Judge Hb by height if Sedimenten red blood cells after Zentrifugation
Determine UTI based on look and snell of urine sample
Go 'well that's a liver problem' based on plasma color
Strange ability to go 'we need more blood' before you actually need it and order accordingly
im imagining someone lifting their head from paperwork and staring off into the distance ominously before saying "we need more blood.....", or perhaps abruptly stopping and going "need more blood. one moment" in the middle of a conversation. very good mental image
Not quite but like...also not far off?
Imagine an MTA standing in front if the blood fridge, looking in at a perfectly suffucient stock, going 'i don't like that' and breaking out the Fax form
Nice compliments i have gotten recently:
'You look like Humphrey Bogart' from a Hospital staff member who saw me in my long spring coat, which is a vintage grand-ma sourced twenties vibe thing
'In my head you're always wearing black' from @sirsparklepants when i posted a progress shot of my white skirt. Lemme tell you, hearing that my goth vibes are that strong was INTENSELY flattering.
When you wanna bitch about a character....but the only people you could bitch to actually like that Charakter....
Reading other people slowly lose it during the plague is... Kinda baffling to me?
I guess part of it us that my daily life barely changed. I work a lab, all we did us extra cleaning and shutting down Outsider influx in the shape of people coming into the lab with their own samples.
But aside from that, it was a month of Serie quiet and now it's back to business as usual.
Sure i wear a mask to the outside now if i can expect to be around people, but....that's basically it? And now infection numbers are gone down (slightly below 10k active last i checked) it's gotten even weirder because that means that general infection risk is also low
i know for other people it impacted them way worse and that the overall Situation was way more apocalyptic than germany ever got but it's still so weird when people talk about how this will leave an entire generation as germaphobes and unable to touch anyone.
Because like. I'm not gonna come out of this with trauma. I'm gonna come out of this with split skin on my hands.
yeah same. my job is essential and I tend to be a homebody anyway so my life is kind of surreally normal rn.
Yeah it's....dunno. Strange. Funnily enough i actually talk more to people because i took up Destiny and play it with friends on voice chat
Meanwhile I was already in a depressive downswing, so nothing's changed and because I tend to become a shut-in when that happens anyway I'm. Pretty immune to cabin fever. I miss being able to go out, but it's not killing me, and even my meatspace friends have an online presence.
ivy doing bonsai things is VERY infectious
now i am considering if you could like. Attach an air plant to a nicely shaped pumice and float it on a jar/bowl with some pretty sand at the bottom and maybe a small underwater plont? mini mossballs?
My current mossball seems to be doing well enough?
I just. Hm. space is an issue but also...it'd be so pretty....
Ivy i am trapped now
:) planthellplanthellplanthell :)
I will drag my mum to Dehner for a decent mini orchid, pumice pot, and nice decorative bowl
I wish the covid situation here was as chill as it has been in Germany. My country has 500k cases and a policy of only testing people that need hospitalization. Brazil at the moment is a garbage fire, and our health system does not have the money for the load. Being home is not particularly hard for me or my family, but everything else is just terrible.
Yeah I'm super aware that we got off incredibly lightly compared to many other places. Seeing it on the news is pretty terrible already and that's just well, the news. Not next door to where I am. i hope you can stay safe and just. that things finally start getting better.
okay so current idea for the pumice stone is: a flat pretty bowl, something sparkly on the ground, pumice stone with mini orchid affixed to it. maybe some floating plants/a smol underwater one for into the bowl
@artistformerlyknownasdave you're Aquarium Person: if i get a bowl like that with maybe an anubias in there, do i like. Need to do anything to it with fertilizer or some such? or do i just put it in there and place it somewhere it gets enough light?
