Woke up this morning to find baby abs. Left is no flex, right if flexing

Whatever women do they must do twice as well as men to be thought of half as good. Luckily this is not difficult.

equality needs to be a goal that everybody actively works towards.

Just sayin’. It’s hard for us to succeed when half of the population is subject to this.

Puzzlewood Magical Forest — The Real Middle Earth

Puzzlewood is a unique and enchanting place, located in the beautiful and historic Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, England. There is more than a mile of meandering pathways through Puzzlewood and over 14 acres of ancient woodland. It has an atmosphere quite unlike any other wood. The magical forest is one of the most stunning in the world and it’s easy to see why it’s been used as a filming location for Merlin and Dr. Who. It is no wonder that JRR Tolkien is reputed to have taken his inspiration for the fabled forests of Middle Earth from Puzzlewood. 

In Puzzlewood you will find strange rock formations, secret caves and ancient trees. The geological features here are known locally as scowles. The scowles originated through the erosion of natural underground cave systems formed in limestone many millions of years ago. Uplift and erosion caused the cave system to become exposed at the surface. This was then exploited by Iron Age settlers through to Roman times for the extraction of iron ore.

Evidence of Roman occupation of the area is supported by the discovery of a hoard of over 3,000 Roman coins from the 3rd Century which were found in the scowles of Puzzlewood. Once the Romans left, nature reclaimed the old workings with moss and trees, to create the unique landscape. The historical use soon became forgotten, and the folklore of “Puzzlewood” began.

In the early 1800s, a local landowner laid down a mile of pathways which meandered through the trees and gulleys to open up this ancient forest originally for the amusement of his friends and children. In the early 1900s, Puzzlewood opened to the public. Since then it is has remained essentially unchanged with the same stunning pathways and bridges as in earlier times, but with the addition of a variety of animals and visitor facilities.

My neighbors just came up and yelled at me. Guess I shouldn’t do burpees in my living room.

Is me.

Is me.

I normally ship Dramione the hardest but I started reading “Astoria” by signedheart and I love. One of the Dramione themes that I love is a strong Hermione just realizing that she can and should move past Ron and the timid girl she could be at school. It really is wonderful to read other POVs to the story though.

Often the people that ship Dramione are those that aspire to great and painful love stories. I am one of those people and sometime I will have that. Unfortunately I’m still with my Ron.

Sometimes I see things that I like and then I think about it. It’s probably not a good thing to like a photo of homeless pre-teens. Like that’s probably a shitty thing to do. But I get the sentiment. The look in these kids eyes has appeared in mine as well. I get how it feels to not have a home and be just like “fuck the world it hasn’t given me shit.” It sucks that we are often asked to bear burdens that we shouldn’t have to but regardless we’re forced to bear them when we aren’t ready. I guess in the end we either fail or fly but it still sucks.
