I blinked one day and when I opened my eyes, it was normal to have an American army battling Americans on American streets. No one even calls it a war. But it is.
saying that reading the introduction to the DSM-5 is completely boring and dull is a HUGE understatement.
fucking grad school.
Today in Solidarity: Justice for Eric Garner Edition (8.23.14)
Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
Two ways of dealing with tear gas grenades from comrades in Turkey: Either submerge them in water. Make sure you can close off the container cause the gas will still spread for a while. Or throw them in the fire so the gas burns off before it can spread.

As the world watches the events unfolding in Ferguson, many people have thought “how can I help?”. As a public school teacher, my first thought is always about the children involved in any tragic situation like this. When I found out school had been canceled for several days as a result of the civil unrest, I immediately became worried for the students in households with food instability. Many children in the US eat their only meals of the day, breakfast and lunch, at school. With school out, kids are undoubtedly going hungry.
ALL OF THIS MONEY WILL GO TO FEED KIDS IN FERGUSON. A dollar or a hundred dollars, it doesn’t matter. You will be helping to put food in the mouth of a child who needs it. Regardless of your opinion on the civil unrest in Ferguson, there is no need for innocent children to go hungry because of it.
Sometimes I get the camera out, expecting to take a few beauty shots and end up with shots like these. I know that there are more flattering poses, that I could look prettier with makeup, filters and some light retouching but it’s nothing short of cathargic to just face yourself the way you are, scars, bumps, bruises and all. It’s like letting go of the edge of the swimming pool and simply trusting that you won’t drown.
