@brittanylesser Because it’s leg day. And being strong far outweighs being skinny. Left was when I was running way too many miles (ya idk😳) and only ate clean food. Nothing else. Right is this morning, following flexible dieting, allowing myself to have no foods off limits. No long distance running at all, lifting heavy. I also actually gave myself time to eat more food to build muscle which I was way too scared to do before. It was so worth it. Never felt as confident as I do now when I was just striving to be skinny. F that, I’ll take the righ

Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor was arrested on Monday during unrest in Ferguson.

Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest “for failing to disperse.” 8 others were also arrested.

"I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety," Epstein told The Nation during her arrest. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re ninety.” Epstein is currently an activist and a vocal supporter of the Free Gaza Movement. 

Very few people have deserved a spot on this blog more

The Importance of the Black Belt

The black belt is associated with a certain stigma among many different types of people. To them, if you achieved a black belt it can be brushed off with a simple comment such as “well you couldn’t stop someone shooting you so….” or something else along the lines of “Wow you could totally kick someones ass!”.

To me, these comments can be quite irritating even if the last comment can be taken as some what of a compliment. Only those who have train in martial arts or who have witnessed someone close to them learn the art can, in my opinion, hold a proper understanding of the importance of this belt.

In a proper training environment (and by saying this I am not referring to some of the ‘cash cow’ dojos that are lying about where if you pay the right price you can buy your black belt) the belt represents many things, such as:

  1. Years of diligent practice.
  2. Patience through the progression up the ranking system of the martial art.
  3. Overcoming the steep learning curve of martial arts, including both the physical and mental aspects.
  4. Pushing yourself to the limit.
  5. Taking martial arts into your daily life.

The reason that the fifth point is mention is because, if you have been learning your martial art for long enough, you would have probably incorporated some of your training into your daily life routine, whether you realise it or not.

To cut it short, the black belt represents a level or personal, mental and physical commitment to an art that not everyone can achieve. By earning this, it puts all of that commitment into something that you can wear with pride, an item you can cherish and a state of mind no one can take away.

I don’t think this could be any more true

You can buy a floor tile with your name on at the Shakespeare’s Globe in London. The bigger the donation, the bigger the tile. John Cleese bought one for himself and a bigger one for Michael Palin, under one condition: they had to spell Michael’s last name wrong: it now forever says Michael Pallin.

John Cleese is forever my favourite real life troll
