Always when I’m meant to be revising I get really passionate about something or other that I want to do (that isn’t revising). At the moment I’m really enjoying setting up a bottle garden and a load of baby herbs on my window sill and trying to rescue our dying basil. 
And I’m really getting into the idea of one day building myself an underground eco-home and maybe trying to get a load of people together to build a eco-community of generally sustainable awesomeness. 

I’m supposed to be learning about subduction zones but I’m all GARDENER’S WORLD HELL YES. 

Fuckin' Fine Ass Leaves

So you know how in cartoons etc the badass might have X shaped scars to show they’ve been in lots of battles with things like warriors and sharks and fell beasts and so on?

Well I would be proud of my newly minted X shaped scar if it weren’t:
a) on my left thumb
b) firstly the result of ramming a carving tool into said thumb many moons ago
c) secondly the result of cutting the exact same patch of thumb on a pot of hummus.

i think it’s a universal truth that everyone in our generation takes pluto’s losing its planetary status as a personal offense

yes

pluto is smaller than russia. why did we ever even consider it a planet?

BECAUSE IT’S A PART OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM

OHANA MEANS FAMILY

FAMILY MEANS NO ONE IS LEFT BEHIND

So this is technically revision for me right now so it’s okay for me to blather on about this instead of actually revising … or sleeping.

So there are three criteria for a body in our solar system to be a planet:

1. It has to orbit the sun. If it doesn’t, it’s either a satellite or an exo-planet.

2. It has to be large enough so that gravity controls its shape and makes it all spherical-like.

3. It has to have “cleared its neighbourhood” Basically it has to be the only really big thing on it’s orbital path except for it’s own satellites.

Now, Dwarf Planets pass on the first two fronts, but not on the third. Pluto is currently considered as a dwarf planet in the Kuiper Belt that shares its orbital neighbourhood with the cutely named “Plutinos”. 
It isn’t lonely in this classification though, the International Astronomical Union currently recognises five in total - Pluto, Ceres, Eris, Makemake and Haumea, with estimates of there being hundreds to thousands of them in our solar system.

So if anything, Pluto’s family just got bigger.
