i'm emma. 23. north carolina. this blog is an amalgam of personal stuff, including but not exclusive to secular (ish?) witchcraft.

every few months or so a group of five friends and i put on ridiculous goth outfits and go to a fancy dinner. we rarely see each other anymore because two of them travel for work and the other three are married with kids, but we always fall right back into the rhythm of talking about fashion within minutes. 

i felt severely underdressed tonight, though, ‘cause it’s really humid here and i’m a budget goth. the girl with the disposable income in the group had on the most fabulous corset that made me want to die.

This illustration depicts a three-dimensional (3D) computer-generated image of a group of extended-spectrum ß-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (ESBLs) bacteria. The artistic recreation was based upon scanning electron micrographic imagery. This is an excellent visual example of the long, whip-like peritrichous flagellae sprouting from what appear to be random points on the organism’s exterior, as well as the numerous shorter, and finer fimbriae, imparting a furry look to the bacteria.CDC/ Melissa Brower
