Alea Iacta Est

"The die has been cast."

Salve sum Nick! 22. I enjoy history, fiction, and a fine mixing of the two.

Ravenclaw, Hand of the King, Squire of Rohan, Plebian, cohort in Caesar's Tenth Legion, Nerdfighter, Psych-O, & member of Team Lads.

Permanently residing in Dante's first circle of Hell (as to chill with my favorite Pagans).

I am studying history and how to successfully live my life at Saginaw Valley State University

¡Hala Madrid!
Things that have my Tumblr heart

Men, I would like to give this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue, too. To date, I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society. I’ve seen young men suffering from illness, unable to ask for help for fear it will make them less of a man. I’ve seen men fragile and insecure by what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality, either. We don’t want to talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are. When they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence. If men don’t have to be aggressive, women won’t be compelled to be submissive. If men don’t need to control, women won’t have to be controlled. Both men and women should feel free to be strong. It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are. We can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom. I want men to take up this mantle so their daughters, sisters and mothers can be free from prejudice but also so their sons have permission to be vulnerable and human, too and in doing so, be a more true and complete version of themselves - Emma Watson for HeForShe UN campaign

Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.

THIS WILL BE SUCH A LONG MARATHON AND I AM SO READY

That’s prob about 12 hours

extended lotr alone is 11 hours and 22 minutes.

to watch the extended versions of both the hobbit and lord of the rings it would take roughly 20 hours i can’t wait 

I know at least two people who’ll undoubtedly try to marathon the extended editions of these films.

Yeah that’s accurate.

raynebow-cake:

I saw a few asks that say “describe my aesthetic” so this one takes a bit more creativity.

Whether it’s the lyrics or just the over all sound, send me a song that you think fits my “aesthetic”

You can tell a lot about the person from the music they listen to. Put your music device on shuffle and write the first 20 songs that play without skipping. Tag 10 people afterwards.
