I was gonna do a follow forever but it’s a weird number right now and I should of done this forever and a day ago. Literally forever ago. Next time I do a follower thing I’ll do a forever one. BUT THIS, this I like to do. Anyways, hi, hello, I’m having a giveaway thing. I’m calling it a thing cause I’m not giving away awesome things just icons. Everyone can use icons right? Anyways, I’m doing it cause there’s a lot of you. It’s only been a few weeks and damn you’re all pretty grand. So here, here’s a gift. Or well— a chance at a gift. Thanks for sticking with me and Rocket, so here’s something back.
- Have to be following me. ‘This is just a ploy to get followers!? No. This whole giveaway is for my followers. It would be in poor taste if someone who wasn’t my follower to win this.
- Winner will be decided on Saturday, August 23rd at 9pm central.
-You can only reblog once! If you like it, it also counts. So 1 reblog + 1 like = 2 chances to win.

Second Place: Icons! x30
Third Place: Icons! x20
The community in Ferguson is struggling to come up with the money to keep their kids fed, since school has been cancelled all this time, yet people have donated over $12,000 to the murderer who started all of this in the last 24 hours alone. Think about that. And then donate to the right cause.

“It begins with a heightened perception of the way our lives move forward. We notice those chance events that occur at just the right moment, and bring forth just the right individuals, to suddenly send our lives in a new and important direction.” –James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy
I never read The Celestine Prophecy. But it’s sitting in my room… the copy she gave me five years ago. I told her I’d return it when I finished reading it, and she responded with “nah, it’s fine. You keep it. You need it more than I do.”
I never even opened it. But I did last night, when I heard from my father that she had died… and nobody knew why, but they suspected suicide. That quote was on the first page, and it is so, so very appropriate. Because Jenn was one of those chance events. She was the right individual. She sent my life in a new and important direction because she gave it back to me. And she changed me in ways I sometimes don’t even notice until I think about them… and just how profound her impact was.
Like, here’s a list of things that I am because of her:
- A vegetarian
- A firm believer in reincarnation (which is a significant part of my spirituality)
- A better rider (she let me use her horse for my lessons in 2009, which helped me develop better than if I’d been using the school ponies)
- A person who is more confident in her compassion
- A more confident and empowered person generally
- A Coldplay fan
What do you do when someone who had such a drastic positive impact on your life that vestiges of her influence remain not just in your memories, conceptions, and perceptions, but in the fact that you are alive to have them…
…couldn’t do for herself what she did for you?
People are giving Wilson money to thank him for killing an unarmed black teenager. Please report this to GoFundMe, as it violates their Terms of Service and they get 5% of the tens of thousands of dollars being donated. Click to report.
This is my message, in case you want to copy and paste:
Your Terms of Service prohibit “items that promote… hate, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime.” Take a look at the comments that come with the donations on this page and tell me that doesn’t violate your terms. “Support Officer Wilson” is a thin veil for people rewarding Wilson for killing a black kid.
a cool and tough introduction survey:

something real cool that you can do: Well today I discovered that I can sneak past my hugging roommates in the kitchen with like an inch of room to spare, turn on the water, and stand there for about 30 seconds without either of them realizing that I’d even walked past them. So. I apparently can ninja.
a song you want to share wit yo followers: Kecharitomene, Loreena McKennitt (but you have to listen to the whole thing because it crescendoes and the end’s the best part. Listen to it loud, and tell me it doesn’t make you want to get up and start dancing wildly.)

favorite pokemon: I haven’t watched/cared about Pokemon since I was twelve, but… I remember liking Rapidash, Eevee, Ninetails, and Persian. This is based purely on how cute I think they are, and nothing else.
