These were too beautiful not to share. Redditor night4awk created a collection of pictures crossing Calvin & Hobbes with real life backgrounds/locations. Awesome, just awesome!
I don’t like it when people romanticise life. Life is not a place where flowers grow in the abyss of your lungs. Your skin crinkles. It’s not luminescent. That’s the moon. It has craters. So do you.
I got really precise results in my thermochemistry lab and even though it’s a small deal it’s a big deal to me because I’m not good at science and I don’t know why I’m doing a science degree and people laugh at my lack of direction and derpness in life so I laugh too and I laugh it all off and it leaves me like a shrug of the shoulders.
