Please reblog if you know anyone who might take party drugs.
I’m not an emt yet, but everytime I see someone do drugs, I just hope they’re smart enough to remember these points.
I really love this, because as someone with anxiety when I did take party drugs way back when I was always scared of going to the hospital because I didnt want to be arrested…..even when I bad tripped and cried in the bathroom for 10 hours because I thought Jeff was trying to murder me. I dont do party drugs anymore, but it still is comforting to me….seriously.
Most EMTS and medics I’ve met are some of the most non-judgmental folks ever. Look, we love helping people and saving lives. That’s what we went to school for. Help us help you, and everyone will fare better for it.
Could you live on $8 or $9 dollars an hour? A computer game made by the Urban Ministries of Durham in North Carolina and an advertising firm called McKinney lets you play out life with a low-wage job as a single mom. The objective is to make it a month, juggling getting a job, rent, a place to live, food and coping with the costs of repairs, things for your child, insurance, etc.. Actually a very hard game to play and full of reminders of the difficulties of life on that kind of salary.
Play the game.
Seriously, if you haven’t played before, play it now. If you have played before, play it again. Especially important during this election season.
just playing this game alone made me really stressed and anxious
ALL THE HATER ANONS, PLAY THIS
This game is amazing. Play it, play it, play it! I shared this with a professor who then had her students play it. So real.
This is serious stuff. Go play!
on a much lighter note, why hasn’t Apple released an Oregon Trail app? wasn’t that game made for those clunky, colorful macintosh computers, or am i misremembering???
i just want someone who is bigger than i am to come over and hold me while i lay down in my bed and just breathe for awhile

Kameron Slade, a fifth-grader from Queens, NY, was scheduled to deliver a speech as part of a school-wide competition at PS 195. But when the principal learned Kameron’s speech was about same-sex marriage, he was ordered to choose a new topic or lose the opportunity to speak. (via)
ETA - Update: Kameron will now be giving his speech to the whole school at a special assembly on Monday.
My kid will be this cool
I don’t think you understand how fucking amazing this kid is, in the first gif he immediately shows himself to be more understanding of these issues and of the actual terminology of the debate by saying “same gender marriage” instead of “same sex marriage” therefore including an entire wave of activism in the form of pushing through the thought that it should be gender and not sex, allowing gay trans people to also get married and be recognized and to deconstuct the idea of sex=gender. I love this kid. I love this kid so very much.
