Voltron Workout

Thanks @sniperlance for giving me the confidence I needed to post this.

This is a workout I’ve been doing, and even though it hasn’t been long, I can feeI and notice the difference. Also, if you have any questions on any of these workouts/poses, just shoot me an ask and I’ll do a video/have a picture of me doing it/explain it for ya. Warm ups are the same as cool downs, so just repeat them when you’re done working out. (Also, I apologize for the formatting, at the moment I don’t have a computer so I’m doing this from the mobile app. I’ll try to fix it when I have one again.)

AND HEY!! DON’T BE AFRAID TO TAKE A BREAK AND GET A DRINK OF WATER OR SOMETHING IN THE MIDDLE OF IT OKAY? YOU ARE NOT IMMORTAL!! PLEASE, IF YOU FEEL TIRED SIT DOWN AND GET BACK UP WHENEVER YOU ARE READY!!!

Don’t forget that some of the most important parts of being fit, is eating heathly, drinking lots of water, and knowing your limits. You won’t see results right away, keep in mind that it’s okay if you can’t do the until failure things for long. This is a hard workout and it’s meant to push you as far as you can go. Don’t overwork yourself, okay guys?

Dancing with the Linebacker - Epilogue

WARNING: THIS IS 100% FLUFF
Kristoff and Anna welcome their twins! Oh and a wedding or something…

Despite how sore and tired she was, Anna could not stop smiling.  They were finally brining their babies home.  Born on August 1st, at 36 weeks and five days, Wesley came in at 5 pounds 8 ounces and Olivia weighed 5 pounds 3 ounces.   They now occupied the two brand new car seats, as her and Kristoff drove with the excitement of taking their newest additions home for the first time.

pink-roses-are-pretty  asked:

Ok i just thought of this: Shouldn't Gryffindor's symbol be a griffin because it is GRIFFINdor Or is it like ravenclaws eagle? I wanna know what you think

I get what you’re saying. The reason it’s a lion is because lions are a symbol of bravery.

As for Ravenclaw, ravens are considered one of the smartest animals in the world (which is probably how Rowling came up with the name). Eagles symbolize majesty.

I think maybe Rowling wanted real animals for each house.

If it helps, griffins are basically half lion and half eagle so a lion symbolizing that House makes sense.

Highland Park, the dirty place, where you can find spare parts in the gutters. When we had dreams as long as the pink jump rope in the garage, we were kings. I could never find the tire pump for my old bicycle, my mom squeezed my shoulder with bloody hands and told me not to bother. I stepped into the streetlight. I didn’t come out.

Pasadena, the stairwell city, where high school gave us aviation lessons in a leaking plane with no glasses on. We end up in the crowd at school basketball games every single night like we are scared we will miss something transcendent. Like we will see something in the moment that ball and his brown knuckles meet the rim, something that sends the Gods off of their thrones, kids into the street drinking water from broken fire hydrants slipping in their fresh sneaks, screaming nursery rhymes between rainbow braces like long dormant volcanoes. We don’t have to grow up to feel this way, us brown kids, us brown kids. I think I’m crying, I think I’m gonna cry. I shoot up and scream foul at an empty gym in my dreams. Please don’t forget about me. Please think of me some nights. Please laugh in your gen ed classes with your new best friends half eagle flights away, with your sneakers in knots, please laugh at something silly I said 5 years ago, when you are lonely in the crowd and flying solo like the red cup in your hand, when you are dripping like a Dali painting at the laundromat, and if somebody asks you what’s so funny say, “Nothing, just this kid I knew from back home.” When you are washed and hung out to dry, when you are crying in your dorm room and fear like soap bitter in your mouth because you are supposed to be an adult and now nobody is there for you: Plant me somewhere you don’t feel safe and. I will make you safe. Again.

South Pasadena, the glass sanctuary, where I didn’t get into the 5th grade play and held my tongue until it was too soft for anyone to give a rats ass. They call me sweet, and give me ginger snaps. The old thrift shop where they gave out free condoms is still standing on the corner, hip popped, habits still just as bad. Who do you think is throwing away their memories in garbage bags there now? Who do you think is wearing somebody else’s war? I could ask you to say sorry but you’d have bubblegum in your mouth. I could ask you to clean up your act but the sinkhole in the boarded up movie theater is just local legend by now.

Massachusetts, the something awful state, the dreams under my shoes and my back hurts to much to bend down and dust them off. There is something sharp cutting the hands of two rowdy lake poison slinging Irish Catholic boys in the bathroom of the Malden recreation center, there is something sharp and it is making them into blood brothers, and God as my witness it is my tongue.

Some plants are meant to be touched. Some flowers are meant to make crowns but I am not, and I am neither.

Honestly, how difficult was it to be polite? You were a soft spoken girl and always kept your manners straight, yet people seemed to distance themselves from you.

Is it just my personality? You wondered, forcing a smile and nodding in understanding as you shut yet another door to a car that was filled to the brim with other first years.

MOTHERFUCKING DRAGON RAIN

IN CHINA, RAIN DOESN’T COME FROM CLOUDS. DON’T BE FUCKING STUPID. RAIN COMES FROM MOTHERFUCKING DRAGON BATTLES.

DRAGONS ARE HALF STAG, HALF DEMON, HALF CAMEL, HALF FISH, HALF CLAM, HALF EAGLE, HALF TIGER MONSTERS. NOW, THAT’S SEVEN HALVES, SO THAT OUGHT TO MAKE THREE AND A HALF DRAGONS. NO. DRAGONS MAY BE FUCKING MAGNIFICENT, BUT THEY’RE SHIT AT COUNTING.

DRAGONS DON’T MUCH LIKE SUNLIGHT, SO DURING THE SUMMER THEY FUCK OFF AND HIDE IN UNDERGROUND LAKES. THIS IS BECAUSE IF A DRAGON SPENDS TOO LONG AWAY FROM WATER IT GOES ALL SMALL AND DRIED UP AND WRINKLY, SORT OF LIKE A FRUIT. A FUCKING MASSIVE FRUIT WITH SCALES AND TALONS AND FIRE BREATH. KIND OF LIKE A PINEAPPLE REALLY.

WHEN A DRAGON WAKES UP, IT’S PRETTY FUCKING ANGRY. DRAGONS AREN’T MORNING PEOPLE. IF A NEWLY WOKEN DRAGON RUNS INTO ANOTHER DRAGON, IT TRIES TO BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF IT. IT MAKES ONE HELL OF A NOISE, AND THEN THE FIGHT ENDS IN TEARS WHICH FALL FROM THE SKY.

FUCKING MAGICAL.
