@CMemmel: Hey there 33. @coachandymmgym said we should get rid of mats today and dared me to finish off the routine after I caught it. No pressure right? Well it wasn’t that pretty and I hit the low bar but I did it!! Feeling super proud and accomplished for learning a new skill.
We can continue to learn and try new things, there is not a specific “age” that you must learn a skill by. I want to continue to help shift that mentality, especially in gymnastics. Cheers to more adult gymnastics, learning new skills and fun #chellsiesadultgymnasticsjourney
For the first time, ever, Britney Spears is speaking at a hearing regarding her longstanding conservatorship, which drew worldwide attention when the New York Times documentary Framing Britney Spears aired. The superstar has been under a court-ordered conservatorship since 2008, though the public was never given a reason why. According to CNN, her parents, Jamie Spears and Lynne Spears, referred to Britney as “an adult child in the throes of a mental health crisis” back in February 2008. During the trial, which had #FreeBritney supporters gathering outside the Los Angeles County’s Stanley Mosk Courthouse, Spears said the conservatorship extended to her body, stating that she was not allowed to have additional children, get married, or even take out her IUD.
“I have an IUD in my body right now that won’t let me have a baby and my conservators won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out,” Spears said during the hearing. “I wanna be able to get married and have a baby.” She went on to explain that under the current arrangement, she is not allowed to see her friends, have her boyfriend drive her, and to grow her family and get married.
Just saw an 11 year old on Tumblr with her whole name and info in her bio and like-
Listen i know there are lots of kids here under the age of 14 and you want to be on internet and have fun too and it’s all good just be safe?? Don’t tell your full name, where you live, your age (to random strangers) and especially your photos. I know I sound annoying and “old fashioned” but it is important dude, there are lot of people on the internet waiting to take advantage of you, i am not saying everyone is bad most people are amazing but some are not good? Don’t disclose your information, idk if schools and parents have stopped teaching these things but you have to know internet safety, I know how much you wanna ignore and “break the rules” I was just like you but for god sake keep yourself safe please.
“Perhaps you have forgotten. That’s one of the great problems of our modern world, you know. Forgetting. The victim never forgets. Ask an Irishman what the English did to him in 1920 and he’ll tell you the day of the month and the time and the name of every man they killed. Ask an Iranian what the English did to him in 1953 and he’ll tell you. His child will tell you. His grandchild will tell you. And when he has one, his great-grandchild will tell you too. But ask an Englishman—” He flung up his hands in mock ignorance. “If he ever knew, he has forgotten. ‘Move on!’ you tell us. ‘Move on! Forget what we’ve done to you. Tomorrow’s another day!’ But it isn’t, Mr. Brue.” He still had Brue’s hand. “Tomorrow was created yesterday, you see. That is the point I was making to you. And by the day before yesterday, too. To ignore history is to ignore the wolf at the door.”

“You know what I want right now? For us to stop with the drama, stop the average dates and crappy kisses and to just be ourselves tonight. And I promise I won’t let you stay, I’ll take you to the airport myself. I’ll put you on the plane if I have to. And I guess there’ll be some tears, some drama, some bit of ‘Nadia, I’m going to miss you’” “And what then?” “Then we’ll go back to the phone. We’re not bad at it, anyway.”NADIA & GUZMÁN in ÉLITE’S SEASON FOUR
