Signed on at a new apartment. This will be the first time I’ll be out on my own for a lease. I’m looking forward to it.
I saw a seagull
It floated on a strong wind
She ignored the cars
This is the sound Jupiter emits via electromagnetic waves. It’s so incredibly cool (10:00)
it sounds so sad and lonely

Continuing its unrelenting march toward a renewable-powered future, Germany now can produce more than half of its energy from solar. The official word of this milestone comes from the Fraunhofer ISE research institute, which showed that the country produced a record 24.24 GW of solar energy during the first week of June. Thanks to better weather in Germany compared to last year, the production of solar power has increased 34 percent in the first part of 2014.
Germany’s expansion of solar energy hasn’t come from enormous farms of solar panels, but rather citizens installing photovoltaics onto their own homes. More than 90 percent of solar panels installed in Germany are on homeowner’s roofs.
It’s not all sunshine, though. Despite this record, Bloomberg reports that the world’s biggest solar market might install the least new capacity that it has since 2008, partially because of shrinking solar subsidies. So growth continues, but slowly.
Wondering how the U.S. compares? We currently get 0.2 percent of our energy from solar. Italy is in second place behind the Germans.

These black roses grow naturally in the tiny village of Halfeti, Turkey. The particular soil conditions and pH levels of the groundwater from the river Euphrates causes the roses to fade from deep crimson to black during the summer. (source)

and I am in them, and that is eternity
The only clothes I have are black, grey, and black and grey.
