(noun) An untranslatable, German word describing the color the eye sees in the dark, in absence of light; loosely translated to intrinsic gray: dark light or brain gray. Eigengrau is perceived as lighter than a black object under normal lighting conditions because contrast visually surpasses brightness to the human eye. For example, the night sky is darker than eigengrau because the stars intensify its blackness, thus providing a high level of contrast.
- literally: eigen (one’s own) + grau (gray) = own’s gray
Anonymous said: So I have a lot of things to do today and the morning was the only time I wasn't busy so I decided to go out on a date with my boyfriend. Well, he never showed up. I got up early for him. I could've slept in. I'm always exhausted from work and school and I was fucking stood up. I cried. I feel so stupid. His excuse was "I woke up late" I set 2 alarms to wake me up, I was dressed, I even had a bit of breakfast and I was fucking stood up. It was so shameful to go back home. I want to cry again.
break up with him he is not the one for u. continue to eat good breakfasts
