I was there, and can atest to how funny it was watching Max and Yodes walk up and down the campsite trying to strategise weak points in security and places to do the sneaky things
On a train, feeling very pressed in.
My thumbs are bleeding a bit and raw where I’ve been picking at them again, and last night I dreamt that I had to pretend I was dead and Ingrid and Nova helped me, but when people found out they all hated me.
I don’t understand what it means, but my jaw has been aching from how hard I’ve been grinding my teeth in my sleep, and I’d like that to stop.
Since “biological sex” is actually a social construct, those who say that it is not often have to argue about what it entails. Some say it’s based on chromosomes (of which there are many non-XX/XY combinations, as well as diversity among people with XY chromosomes), others say it’s genitals or gonads (either at birth or at the moment you’re talking about), others say it’s hormone levels (which vary widely and can be manipulated), still others say it’s secondary sex characteristics like the appearance of breasts, body hair and muscle mass (which vary even more). Some say that it’s a combination of all of them. Now, this creates a huge problem, as sex organs, secondary sex characteristics and hormone levels aren’t anywhere close to being universal to all men or women, males or females.
Those who claim that sex is determined by chromosomes must not realize that sex is assigned at birth not by chromosomes, not even by gonads, but by genitals. In fact, the vast majority of us never learn what our sex chromosomes are. Sex isn’t something we’re actually born with, it’s something that doctors or our parents assign us at birth. So if sex is determined by genitals, they must be clearly binary and unchangable, right? Wrong. Genitals can be ambiguous at birth and many trans people get gender confirmation surgery to change them. Neither chromosomes nor genitals are binary in the way that “biological sex” defenders claim they are, and the vast majority of measures by which we judge sex are very much changable."

Japan #13: Film! Film!! Film!!! (by zane&inzane)
The aesthetics right here though like, fuck.
when McGonagall finds out that Ginny is pregnant, and that the Weasley and Potter bloodlines will converge, she marks on her calender the day the child will turn 11 and that is the day she retires
"Go to a coffee shop. Sit by the bar with the glass windows and look out. Look at all the people running to catch a train. All the girls with one too many shopping bags. All the couples too in love to care. Then you’ll see it — a bit of yourself in everyone. And somehow, sitting alone in a coffee shop had never felt so good."

Going on a road trip to Kalbarri next week!!
Planning to go on some sick walks and make friends with trees. Also take lots of pictures, mostly probably of trees. Also planning to sit and sing to trees and birds and bugs.
If anyone knows of some cool/pretty places to go in particular lemme know, I’m going with a fairly open ended plan so I’m open to suggestions.
This is the 2nd time in my adult life I’ve taken a holiday solo and I’m pretty flippin’ excited. I’m gonna take my crystals with me so it’s a family holiday really.
