Every star is a sun as big, as bright, as our own. Just imagine, how far away from us you’d have to move the sun to make it appear as small and faint as a star. The light from the stars travels very fast. Faster than anything. But not infinitely fast. It takes time for their light to reach us. For the nearest ones, it takes years. For others, centuries. Some stars are so far away it takes eons for their light to get to Earth.

By the time the light from some stars gets here they are already dead. For those stars, we see only their ghosts. We see their light, but their bodies perished long, long ago.

Omg not only do I love ur blog but ur a florida gal too?? I'm in gainesville !!!!

Well HEYYYOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! :)

Awwwwww, thanks for the super nice comments - you just made my day, bby!!! uwu

Yep I’m currently living in Orlando but I’m not a Florida native… I’m originally from Ohio, but I’ve also lived in Michigan, Chicago, and Maryland (Washington DC area) - and I’m moving back to Chicago in like 5 days, not even joking…!! Which I’m excited about bc I LOVE the city of Chicago. I really like Florida, esp the beaches (both coasts and the panhandle too!) and it can see myself moving back here one day but I’m really excited about living in Chicago again!!!!

(at least until the snow/ice/wind starts to get bad… then I’ll be crying every day and asking myself why I ever left The Sunshine State, lol)

Anyways, thanks for the lovely msg, cutie Anon!!! xoxoxo

if you dont mind me asking what part of florida r u in?

I’m in Orlando - but I am moving back to Chicago in less than 6 days!! NGL, I have really enjoyed living where there are palm trees for the last two and a half years - but I LOVE Chicago so I’m super stoked about moving back!!

[… I could see myself moving back to Florida one day but if that happens I think I’d wanna live nearer to the beach - not sure exactly where but it just seems like if you’re gonna have to put up with heat and humidity, your reward should be a beach no more than 20 minutes from you ;) ]

I kind of want someone to get a convention together for them. And they’ll all just like, talk over each other about interesting facts. It’d be adorable and strange.
