If you only watch one ALS Ice bucket challenge, make it this one. 

If you don’t understand what the challenge is or why it’s happening, watch this.

If you’re tired of seeing the challenges, remind yourself of the importance of the money being raised. 

You don’t have to watch them all, you don’t have to do it, you don’t have to donate.

Don’t remain ignorant.

Oh and in case you were wondering what throwing ice water on yourself has to do with ALS, I’ve heard that it’s intent is to mimic the numbness and shortness of breath that people with ALS endure. 

One of the most sinister things about normalized racism is you don’t have to have bad intentions to be racist, you just have to remain ignorant.

Co-op

I am now googling co-op board interview questions and issues because I just got a call from the real estate agent who had some funny things to say after telling me this board is apparently hard. 

Thank god I’m charming.

"First time we’ve deployed inside the US."What does that tell you?

I don’t think the fact that this is the first time is impressive, except to showcase that the world is really watching. The world is watching and if they didn’t know about our atrocious hypocritical secret (not actually so secret), they certainly do now. This has been happening repeatedly throughout our history. The world is not only watching, but taking action. 
We like to go around the world telling other people how to treat each other. Why don’t we, as a nation, start to practice what we preach.

So many jokes can be made about whether I know how to use a stove but you guys I think this might break me. I can’t even guess the era!

There are so many powerful images and social media screen grabs going around about Ferguson right now. This. An account of help from a people struggling with an age old conflict in another part of the world have taken time from their days, their hours, their fear, their sorrow, their war, to send a little advice, help, and acknowledgment to ours.
This is powerful on so many levels. If you don’t see the correlation. Look again. What is happening all around our world is appalling. The USA is not the example we pretend to be.

This photo is worth a million times what I spent on that pink princess book. I just wish I was there to read it with/to her.

Some days the fog and clouds just bend to your will. I’ve been waiting years for this.

Sometimes I wish I could get away with blue hair. 

Also, miss this lady and the bride for which we wore wigs.

I am currently in absolute love with this. It doesn’t help that I was playing around on some realtor sites last night and fell in love with a quaint little 3 bedroom.
