Okay but can we talk about this podium for a moment? Russia Cup, high bar. Igor. With a medal. I swear, whoever said he wasn’t relevant any more needs to shut up, because his score was exactly the same as Nikolai’s.
Also, very attractive podium is very attractive.

I just had to revisit this because it turns out that if you stay up til 6am you finally realise that it looks like Nikita is smirking because it appears that Igor’s hand is grabbing his arse. Just saying.

turkfox I suck at tumblr so idk how to reply to your reply >.< but anyway yeah my Russian name is Anna which I actually like better than my real name so maybe I’ll use it! It’s similar to my actual name anyway

I looked out my old textbook and I’d written “Elena” in pencil in the corner - I remember that! I remember being disappointed because everyone else had more complicated names! I think I’ll pick something else for myself, closer to my actual name and that sounds a bit more like me ;)

I’ve not noticed that if I’m training a lot, I’ll come home and have normal conversations, but if I’ve been working at my desk or just generally sitting down I’ll finish that and then ramble and shout and keyboard smash.

Clearly, I am not designed for a sitting-down lifestyle.


The problem with leaving your home planet in search of a new one is that other countries tend to take it personally. They can feel a little bit like you’re running away from them because you don’t like the way they’re firing nukes at anyone who disagrees with them, and they can hold quite the grudge over it. Almost seven hundred years’ worth of a grudge, as it turns out. As well as keeping the peace in our little corner of the galaxy, we have to deal with training, research missions, anti-terrorism ops and the somewhat tricky task of keeping our use of magic a secret from our enemies. Oh, and of course, getting our First Platoon to stop arguing about cake long enough to get any work done. "War &amp; Cake" is the first novel in the Regiment 14 series.

The paperback is back on sale, so now you&#8217;ve got digital and paper-based options and should really be reading it already. Oh, you&#8217;re not? Well, then get yourself over here to the website and let Amazon sell it to you!

Those sleep masks I make and sell…

At the moment, I’m making masks with a Spiderman comic print and some with multi-coloured handprints which I think look like chalky handprints. They’ll be for sale on my etsy store as soon as I’ve got a few made!

Despite unwellness, I had to make my own chicken soup to feel better. It’s PERFECT though. If you’re sick, call me, I’ll come make you soup.

I’m putting the finishing touches to my routine plans for the November 9th competition. I have to do loads of vault progressions tonight because I need my vault back, but if I have time I’ll run everything else to see what I can tick off and what I still need to work on.

I hate that I’m not allowed to use any dance skills harder than a B on floor. It means I have to do stuff like worry about a handstand-forward-roll or even a bloody handstand in place of spins worth D or E!

Alright so I’m obviously not competing at Worlds this year but I have been getting info from Tomi. These are not rumors, the stuff I’m about to write is seen and experienced by him so if you are curious about some stuff happening there, keep reading :)

It is mostly about guys…

#A shame some gymnasts aren’t happy with the equipment #Don’t they usually get to pratise with the same brand in their own country beforehand? 

You would hope they would, but I expect it wouldn’t be financially possible in most places.

Even for the comp I’m doing soon, I wish we did. Last time, I slipped right off the other side of the springboard on a vault timer and hit the table hands and face first; had to do my vault with pulled muscles in my shoulder! And their bars are marked/numbered differently and I have to take a measuring tape to set the distance apart (height is fine). And let’s not even talk about that evil carpet of doom on the floor… And I hate their vault table. But that’s probably because ours is one of the actual 2012 ones (I think from the warmup room?) so it’s the best.
