Carbon monoxide scare...I had been feeling nauseous all day when our CO alarm went berserk. We got out of the house with only mild poisoning, so after a few hours breathing in the freezing air outside, my mom and I were fine. So I'll be in a hotel for a few days while someone checks out our appliances.Carbon monoxide scare...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Everyone, make sure you have a working CO alarm! Saved our lives, I'd say. Good thing I didn't take a nap.

The thoughts that run through the mind of someone suicidal. Thoughts that ran through my own mind, I admit, many times these past few years. Thoughts that are far too hard to get rid of. Thoughts that I had today, for a split second.
As you battle depression, downfalls are part of the climb to higher, happier places. I posted a couple weeks ago about the rut that I was in. I think I'm still kind of in that rut, but I think I'm on the way out. I just need to write about it, because writing is my way of letting things out, because I am a writer, and writers write. And so I am going to express my thoughts, because if I don't express them, they'll stay bottled up in my little mind and eventually I'll drive myself even more insane than I already am.
Today, I came to a certain conclusion involving those very thoughts. I came to the conclusion that my parents, and perhaps my siblings at times,

Thanks ladies for chatting to me about your work! We'll start at the basics - what got you both into animation?
Thanks for the interview! Surprisingly, our spark for this specialized art form didn't come from a Disney film! We were 7 years old, going with two other sets of twins to the theater who wouldn't be still. We went to watch Spirit: Stallion of the Cimmaron. Being twins (not in all cases of course), we were so in awe at the same time from that point on by the animation produced by this studio called Dreamworks Animation. We started studying up on work from James Baxter, one o

The One Percent's Power and PrivilegesThe great Bill Moyers had a discussion with one of my personal heroes, Matt Taibbi, and the brilliant Chrystia Freeland on wealth inequality, the one percent, big banks, and the influence of money in politics. I highly recommend watching this 49 minute piece!

The One Percent is not only increasing their share of wealth — they’re using it to spread millions among political candidates who serve their interests. Example: Goldman Sachs, which gave more money than any other major American corporation to Barack Obama in 2008, is switching alliances this year; their employees have given $900,000 both to Mitt Romney’s campaign and to the pro-Romney super PAC Restore Our Future. Why? Because, says the Wall Street Journal, the Goldman Sachs gang felt betrayed by President Obama’s modest attempts at financial reform.

This Is My StoryI just kind of... wanted to post this somewhere. I've never told a soul on the internet about my times in the real world, but it feels good to let go of your secrets. It might be quite vague, as I do not really wish to go into detail about my experiences.This Is My Story1 year ago in Personal More Like This
My story starts in around Year 3. There was this boy I knew called Alex. I remember how he'd try and steal things from me all the time, and would jump on my lunchbox and break it. At the time, I never thought anything of it, but as the years of junior school went by, I began to understand just how serious it was to have bullies. Just before I went up into high school, the entire class seemed to go against me. Now I respect those who stayed on the 'good' side of the classroom, and weren't dragged into the teasing along with some of the other students. In fact, most of the teasing didn't even come from my class, it came from all of the other classes, and mostly from boys. I remember being called 'ugly,' 'co

Wife of JesusMore from BBC http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-19645273Wife of Jesus1 year ago in Personal More Like This
An ancient scrap of papyrus makes explicit reference to Jesus having a wife, according to a renowned expert in Christian history. http://www.hds.harvard.edu/faculty-research/research-projects/the-gospel-of-jesuss-wife
Harvard divinity professor Karen King unveiled the 4th-Century Coptic script at a conference in Rome.
She said researchers had identified the words "Jesus said to them, 'my wife'", which might refer to Mary Magdalene.
Christian tradition holds that Jesus did not marry - but Prof King said in early years it was subject to debate.
The provocative find could spark debate over celibacy and the role of women within Christianity, she added.
But the announcement sparked scepticism from some theologians.
Jim West, a professor and Baptist pastor in Tennessee, said: "A statement on a papyrus fragment isn't proof of anyt

So, the 2 worst bullies I had ever met I saw one at school and one after school a daycare(my parents didn't trust me at home). One was a girl and the other a boy. Both hated me. Both taunted me. Both hurt me. Both left mental scars.
The girl didn't respect me. She didn't respect my personal belongings or my privacy. She was constantly taunting, teasing and picking out my flaws. Other kids would see her picking on me and would join in. The authority didn't do anything cause I'm not Mexican you racist dick. I felt so alone. I was having friend issues to add to the torture. I hated school. It was my own living hell.
But after school was almost worse. I was dropped off to daycare everyday after school. The worst thing ab

World Suicide Prevention Day.Hello my beautiesWorld Suicide Prevention Day.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's World Suicide Prevention Day today, or WSPD (Read more about it here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Suicide_Prevention_Day).
Suicide is a very taboo topic, and not many people openly talk about...(unless being ignorant people and joking about something so serious)
So it's on every year , September 10th, and I think today is the start of Suicide Awareness week? I think that's how it works.
Everyday should be Suicide Prevention Day, but this day/week is specifically to raise awareness.
Even though (for me) the day's almost over, the week is still going! So you can talk about it with people, wear a touch of orange or go full orange (I'm sure someone will ask why) or you could draw some butterflies or write "love" on your arms.
Most importantly, if you see anyone feeling down, talking about hurting themselves in any way, showing signs of self injury or suicidal thoughts, reach out to them! Supporting people is important. I encourage you, today, to just ra

Five years ago, Sunday night was a time of action for the financial world. Top officials desperate to band-aid an oncoming meltdown would use the weekend to find a suitor for distressed firms before the markets opened on Monday. Bear Stearns got sold to JPMorgan Chase on a Sunday night. Washington Mutual and Wachovia and Merrill Lynch sold on a Sunday too. Mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac went into conservatorship over the weekend.
But there was no weekend shotgun wedding for Lehman Brothers, and their ensuing collapse triggered the final stage of a crisis that we’re still feeling today, when you look at 7.3 percent unemployment, the lowest labor force participation rate si

Beginning July 1, 2014, a same-sex couple applying for a marriage license in the state of Indiana will be guilty of a Level 6 felony, punishable by 18 months in prison and a $10,000 fine. The new law also makes it a Class B Misdemeanor for a clergyman, judge, mayor, city clerk or town clerk-treasurer to perform a same-sex marriage, punishable by up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. Any clerk who issues a license to a same-sex couple would also be guilty of a Class B Misdemeanor.
Even if it is not true...We really need to stop this hate on gays/bis/pansexuals. THEY ARE PEOPLE TWO AND HAVE A RIGHT TO LIVE.
