“Meet the real life mermaid who swims with jellyfish and can hold her breath under water for up to five minutes
Linden Wolbert travels the world as a full time professional mermaid and uses her custom-made 6ft tail to propel her through the water.
The 32-year-old freediver and model can swim to depths of 115ft and uses her skills to promote ocean conservation and education.
Linden, from Los Angeles, California, said: ‘I grew up as a water baby. My parents are both competitive swimmers.
‘I always looked forward to going to the ocean for our summer vacation. I had a magnetism to the water.
‘I’ve kind of always been a freediver but didn’t realise the sport existed until ten years ago. Shortly thereafter, I when began training.
‘Free diving is 70 per cent psychological. You have to be very calm and at ease in the water.’”
she’s living out life the way she truly wants I wish more people were brave enough to do this
If I was a famous author I would publish a book with ten different endings which all went to print with varying degrees of rarity, but not tell the fans about it so that I could watch their confusion as they disagree over how the story ended. Then when they figured it out I would ‘come clean’, telling them that I had released eleven alternate endings and watch them panic again as they all try to find the last ending.
This is perfect.
so every year after the juniors finish reading The Great Gatsby my high school english teacher throws a Gatsby party at his huge house and everyone shows up in period clothing and Charlestons to 20s music and my english teacher just wears a suit and stands off to the side staring wistfully out the window the entire night
you guys think I’m joking??
Oh deer oh deer oh deer
Drawing to calm myself down
