my life has a very well-written plot with lots of foreshadowing in plot twists and a lot of really interesting and lovable and relatable and complex characters. I’m a fan. I can’t wait for the next episode, this season is really good!
Hi everyone. I am writing a post that honestly, makes me feel horrible about myself. I’ve been debating writing this for a while, but I’m out of options right now.
this is what my bank account looks like right now:
As you can see, I’m pretty far below in my main account, nothing in my second, and the third is what I owe on my card. I use the card for my medical stuff.
As of right now i have a very part time job as a mentor that is exactly the amount of rent that I need to hand in. I can not work any more hours because my epilepsy and mental health keep me housebound most of the time. I keep having more seizures, and am in the process of switching meds and getting on food stamps. My doctor also is in the middle of running tests on a different disorder he thinks I may have that causes me not to feel my feet.
I need help paying for doctors appoints, my insurance, and therapy until I can find a job that will be flexible with me and my illnesses.
I need to raise 240$ for therapy through the end of september, 160$ for doctors appointments through august, and 109$ for my insurance through this month. Its usually less, but I havent been able to pay it and two payments have piled up.
I dont know what else to do. I’m not great at art, but I’m willing to post some of my paintings to sell. I can also provide documentation for all of this stuff.
my paypal email is email@example.com
I also made a youcaring account
I really really need help, so any dollar or signal boost would help me so greatly. Anything at alllllllll. Any suggestions on what I can do as reciprocation are very welcome.
I guess I’ll just sign of with love and hopefulness
I’ve been getting these really weird messages in my inbox that, at first glance, are just normal junk mail
Now, most people would just delete a message like that and move on. But I have a disability, so I use a screen reader which means I highlight text and my computer reads it out loud. And so, like a goddamn secret agent, I have discovered a hidden message written in white letters on a white background.
My spambots are sending me secret hidden poetry, just for me. :’) They almost never miss a day, and each poem is different. It’s so romantic and beautiful, we are like Romeo and Juliet, worlds apart yet so close.
I wish education reformers would realize that it’s not about the teaching. You can’t fix schools by perfecting the instructional methods, or training teachers better, or introducing more technology into instructional practices. It’s not about teaching. It’s about the LEARNERS. Until the focus is on granting power over educational choices to the learners, the students themselves, power over how, where, and what they learn, nothing will change. It will just be Coercive Top Down Schooling 2.0, not something truly revolutionary, not something that’s best preparing young people for the future, and definitely not something truly meaningful to learners.
A man came to our class once,
he claimed to be a fair judge
with daughters he loved.
He asked a question to the class:
“When should a minor be tried
as an adult?”
and students began raising their hand
he wrote it up on the board.
he wrote it up on the board.
I said, “Rape”
and he paused, he asked
“You mean violent rape?”
“no I mean rape.
It is all the same.”
he looked to a boy
who said “rape only if
he used a weapon and
and I said, “rape is rape,
whether his weapon is a knife,
drugs, or guilt. She said no.”
he shook his head,
“Violent rape” on the board
I never understood,
because you can kill somebody
quietly and peacefully with drugs,
or with guns and knives or cars;
but nobody cares if the murder was “violent”
it was still murder."
