as Finn in The Rise of Skywalker (2019)
I’ve been reading for *checks clock* more than FIVE HOURS….
Gandalf is all of them
I love how every fictional wizard is either
A. Old and wise
B. Old and absolutely bonkers. Just straight bananas
C. A bitch
The same man who said:
- “Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement.”
- “All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
- “He that breaks a thing to find out what it is has left the path of wisdom.”
- “Do not tempt me! For I do not wish to become like the Dark Lord himself. Yet the way of the Ring to my heart is by pity, pity for weakness and the desire of strength to do good.”
- “I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil.”
- “I hope Butterbur sends this promptly. A worthy man, but his memory is like a lumber-room: thing wanted always buried. If he forgets, I shall roast him.”
- “Knock on the doors with your head, Peregrin Took, but if that does not shatter them, and I am allowed a little peace from foolish questions, I will seek for the opening words.”
- “I was talking aloud to myself. A habit of the old: they choose the wisest person present to speak to; the long explanations needed by the young are wearying.”
- “If I may not lean on my stick as I go, then I will sit out here, until it pleases Théoden to hobble out himself to speak with me.”
- “Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?“
Fine I’m going to complain anyway. Please know that I’m not unaware of how frustrating it might be to hear me talk about weight and body image since I’ve never been discriminated against for my weight or struggled with many aspects of our shitty weight loss culture. This is not pro weight loss in the least though. actually the opposite.
To add to the shitty things that have happened this week I also weigh less than I have in probably 7-8 years which is really right next to being underweight and I feel like no one ever takes me seriously or wants to listen when I’m upset about it. My appetite has been low, I’ve been nauseated and inactive and I feel weak and feel like I look bony and weak and bad. I used to weigh 135 pounds and that was when I was really active and athletic – I could bike 5 miles to mma practice, train for 3 hours and bike 5 miles after in a hilly area, and I had a lot of energy. I think I’d look good with more fat on me, but the irony is at 135 pounds I didn’t even look plumper than I do now, I just looked less… disgusting…. and it pisses me off to no end when people are upset when I express that I’d rather weigh 135 pounds again, because they think 135 pounds for a woman my size is fat? And it’s not. Plus I need fat. Why are people acting like fat is bad. And there’s nothing wrong with it. And like, you fuckers saw me at that weight. It was so much better. Why can’t I be the one to decide what weight is best for me? How the fuck is 110 pounds an ok weight for me right now? What’s next, 105? That is scarily low and it makes me feel really upset. I lost at least ten pounds of MUSCLE from surgery and I don’t like weighing a single pound less.i feel insubstantial and sick. And my shoulders look too thin. I had the same ab definition at 135 pounds but I was actually healthy so it’s hilarious to me when people act like 135 pounds would be…what. too much?? I desperately need those pounds back and some of it is muscle but really I just wish that anyone whether family or not would stop even commenting and would just listen to me being upset at weighing so little and feeling so different from how I used to feel. 135 was a killer weight for me actually and I wanted to weigh more than that at the time too because I was doing a lot of weight lifting and wanted to gain more strength. 140 would be amazing. I need both fat and muscle and I certainly plan on gaining both but I guess I just won’t talk with family about that so they won’t get all mad!
Mostly though it’s the inability to understand how upsetting the changes in my body since surgery have been that bothers me.
Since quarantine, my campus job has put us all on unpaid leave and I’ve been quite short on funds. My campus doesn’t expect to open until January of next year, so I decided to begin freelancing as a transcriber on Fiverr!
If you have a 30 minute or less video or podcast you’d like captioned, I’m charging $15 for my service as well as a free revision. Link❣️
Stay healthy babes❣️
If you guys could please reblog this I’d really appreciate it❣️ I’ve only gotten one order so far and I’m starting to reach out to content creators individually, but no dice so far. So a reblog can really go a long way❣️
“I am a queer Iraqi, and feel enormously privileged to live safely in London when I hear about such news. But I watch on guiltily in a climate of Western Islamophobia, where such incidents are co-opted by the far right as a way to incite xenophobia. Of course, they mask their extremism as “the fight to preserve Western liberalism,” and I’m told to count my blessings that the West has saved me from my barbaric homeland. Gay voice in the far right, Milo Yiannopoulos, is but one disgusting example of someone justifying Islamophobia as “protecting civil liberty.” While the “fight against extremism” has been the recent epithet of Western democracy, we have to ask ourselves – what has been the West’s role in extremism in Iraq? Violence against LGBTQI+ people in Iraq has escalated dramatically since the Western invasion in 2003, and it’s not a coincidence. Just as the far right use LGBTQI+ rights as a way to brew racism, Isis exploit LGBTQI+ people as a tool to fuel anti-Western hatred. Disdain for the West is potent on Iraqi soil – what did we expect after destroying a civilisation for no actual reason? And homosexuality has become imaged as a Western export. Amir’s team on the ground have seen how LGBTQI+ bodies are weaponised by Isis as being symptomatic of the Western corruption of Iraq. It seems that no matter where you look, queer bodies are the scapegoat for extremism. Are we worth so little? It surprises many that being LGBTQI+ is not actually illegal in Iraq. This is of great pleasure to our now pitiful Home Office – haunted by the ghost of Theresa May’s post – who use the legislative specificity as a way to reject LGBTQI+ asylum seekers from Iraq. In 2010, for instance, the UK Lesbian and Gay Immigration Group exposed that 98-99 per cent of LGBTQI+ asylum applications in the UK were denied. And as recently as 10 April 2017, the Home Office arrested 30 Iraqi refugees – many of whose lives are endangered in Iraq – forcing them on a charter plane without negotiation. It’s hard to get your head around this without wanting to cry: the West has destroyed a once glorious civilisation, has had a role in allowing LGBTQI+ hate crimes to escalate on foreign soil, yet refuses to help those lives who are now endangered because of this. To top it all off, the West paints itself as the bastion of civil liberty. It’s similar to how we’ve selectively forgotten that homophobia in Africa and India is partially a hang up from the ideology of British colonialism – many now tut disapprovingly at the “primitive” behaviours abroad.”
Good news though lol I have antibiotics for my ear infection now 😑
It’s a little thing but it drives me absolutely crazy: people opening my mail or packages that come for me. Why do I have literally no privacy.
The reason I like it is once you’ve explained that your plan will cost less and treat people better you get to ask “so why do you want to treat people worse for more money”
you’re not going to convert a person with this approach but putting it that way makes everyone in the room uncomfortable, which is its own kind of victory (if, of course, that’s safe for you to do)
I don’t think you can actually get across the idea that all human beings deserve agency, dignity, and care until you’ve forced people to acknowledge that they don’t want society to fulfill those needs, because as it stands they’ll say “yeah of course everyone deserves those things” and then drop half a mil on anti-homeless architecture without noticing the contradiction
I understand the inclination to leverage the argument that “it’s cheaper to house the homeless than incarcerate them.” I really do.
But I want to point out that I really don’t care how much it costs, people deserve to have a home where they live and keep their things and sleep and eat meals and have clean water. It’s the most basic thing we can materially offer; a safe place to exist. I don’t care how much that costs, arguing against it is inhuman.
Arguing over costs accepts a fundamental belief that cost is an equal consideration to survival. I reject that fundamental argument. It is unconscionable. Human beings deserve agency, dignity, and care. Cost is nothing.
Me: millennials really like the word whomst
Cat, can I have your autograph? My cats are big fans
Can i just say, shout out to this dude who lasted for 4 seasons, didn’t have one single line to say, who was one freaking awesome fighter that managed to almost kill flint??? Like, yeaaaaah you go dude whose name i don’t know nor was ever mentioned!!! You rock!!!!!!!
There is a life in Boston. There is joy there and music and peace. The door is open. I’ve opened it for you. And it requires no war and no blood and no sacrifice. It requires an intolerable sacrifice. To accept a pardon? To apologize. Apologize? Who will you be apologizing to? To England!
Percy brought me her fluffy turquoise boa last night while trilling loudly.
Josh Williams is actually up for parole this month, June 2020! You can write him a letter that he can use to attest to his character to the parole board. More info here: https://www.freejoshwilliams.com/freejosh
It’s almost like there’s a history (Freddie Mercury) of people (David Bowie) ignoring when people (Megan Fox) say they’re bisexual (Katharine Hepburn), and talking about them (Chuck Tingle) as if they’re definitely gay (Cynthia Nixon) or definitely (Lady Gaga) straight.
I hate that people keep insisting that Kristen Stewart is a lesbian even though she’s flat out said she’s bisexual, that she sees sexuality as grey and fluid, that she’s not strictly homosexual or heterosexual, and that she would definitely date a guy again; like the list goes on. I think it’s the fact that she’s also so visibly gnc and people still can’t concieve that bisexuality isn’t just gay lite? Like as much as she may “look” like a lesbian, she’s a gnc bi woman and I think it’s cool that there’s that kind of rep bc a lot of the bi women the media puts in the spot light are mostly high fem. That doesn’t mean that rep is meaningless but I can count on one hand the amount of andro/masc leaning bi women that are in the public eye.
I also know the other reason why a lot of people keep labeling her as a lesbian is because she’s visibly only been dating women recently, but you don’t have to switch the gender of your s/o every other month to prove you’re still bi like. That’s elementary basics of bisexuality. Especially if said person in question, again, has stated several times that they’re not a lesbian or straight… 🤔
Can we take David Bowie off this list though lmao? He was a predator who abused children by having sex with 14 and 15 year old fans so the LGBT community does not need his name floating around everywhere all the god damn time
