live to ride

how did bikers ever get the reputation of being fearsome. Everything I’ve ever heard about them is always rides for charity, helping stray animals, telling kids to stay in school and doing cute shit like this and generally being nicer than 90% of the population.

I.fucking.hate.ants.

With the same amount of passion as their burning sting. Fucking OW.

They need to get the fuck off my porch. Holy shit.

So…..I started a new painting today. So far I’m really happy with it and think it’s going to turn out really well. :D Will definitely sale. Don’t know how much for yet. Also I need to get cling film so I don’t waste paint by letting it dry up.

I am a zombie.

I don’t know what purpose my child had this morning in walking up so much…but I’ll be damned if I’m going to let her nap today. Jk, of course I’ll let her nap…just not for more than an hour at a time like she let me. Jk again.

Hmm, ok, yes.

Ok, well, 5am.

Haha so I thought 4 am was bad, yeah let’s try 2 am! She’ll probably wake up at 4 too. Ugh, she’s done nursing and is falling asleep in my lap. Need to change her diaper and get her back to sleep in the pack n play.

Okay, officially tired. Babycake is asleep on my lap. Let’s see if I can move her without waking her up and settling her into the pack n play. She actually fell asleep in her crib while playing with her activity mat. Didn’t stay asleep long…but it was nice to see that she’ll be able to sleep in it at night when I’m comfortable letting her.

Gnite.

"You may think that your only choices are to swallow your anger or throw it in someone’s face. But there is a third option; you can just let it go. And only when you do that is it really gone, and you can move forward."

Bitch, I do both. How dare you criticize someone just because they don’t prefer or have access to the same physical activities as you. Not to mention that the two activities serve two different purposes. Zumba is more cardio-oriented with mild full-body toning whereas lifting is going to target specific muscle groups more intensely.
If you genuinely think your workout is better than someone else’s, you are a problem. You are one of the reasons our world is so fucked up. Health isn’t about badges, bragging rights, or physical superiority, and your perpetuations of those notions are part of why eating disorders, body dysmorphia, and depression are so rampant in modern society.


And let’s not ignore the misogyny that’s apparent in memes like this:
Zumba is coded as a feminine workout. It’s a workout that’s mainly aimed at women, taught by women, and framed as a feminine weight loss method. This means that zumba is often interpreted as “not a real workout” or somehow easier than other forms of exercise.
Compare that to lifting, which is a male dominated activity. It’s often okay for women to lift simply because men have already put their stamp of approval on this exercise. It’s okay for women to occasionally be tomboys, or to support their boyfriends at the gym, or to get “dat ass” by doing squats. As long as they mimic male activities without actually getting better than the guys, women are allowed to lift.
There’s a reason why we’re taught that one of these exercises is what a “bitch” does, while the other is legitimate.
