AvaLynn was attacked by another student on the school playground. We are fighting for answers and for greater supervision at school.

My friend Lacey Harris’s 5 year old daughter was brutalized by another child on the playground at school this week, in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Her face is swollen and bruised beyond recognition, and the only thing the school can tell her is that they “are investigating”

This sweet little 5 year old girl is terrified to return to school. She is in pain and she has been MAIMED. This needs IMMEDIATE media attention. The school and local news are ignoring the mother’s and loved ones’ cries for help. This family needs justice for what has been done to their poor little angel, and not just to be swept under the rug, as the school district is attempting to do. PLEASE shine some light on this situation and force school administration and news media to get some answers!

The mother has started a GoFundMe page to request help for paying medical bills and legal fees, as it looks as though she’s going to have to pursue this route in order to get any justice at all for her little girl. Please, please, share this link on your page. Even if people are unable to donate, please just help us get the word out on what is going on with this poor family.

This is really heartbroken for me and extremely hard to look at.

This is the link to Ava’s donation page.
Please donate and share and PRAY!
God bless you all!



Jasmine Richardson

On April 22, 2006, when Jasmine Richardson was just 12, she and her boyfriend murdered her parents and younger brother in their home in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. Richardson’s parents didn’t approve of her relationship with 23-year-old Jeremy Steinke.

Steinke broke into Richardson’s home and killed her mother and father. He then ordered her to stab her little brother. She stabbed the boy once before Steinke took over and slit his throat.

On July 9, 2007, Richardson was found guilty of three counts of first-degree murder. She was sentenced to the maximum penalty of ten years. Her sentence included credit for eighteen months already spent in custody, to be followed by four years in a psychiatric institution and four-and-a-half years under conditional supervision in the community.

Steinke was sentenced to three life sentences on each of the three counts of first-degree murder. He will be eligible for parole after serving twenty-five years.

bokuto koutaro needs to be under a parent's supervision 24/7

Carefully tended to. Approached with a snack accompanied with juice. Use small words and kind hand gestures. Say things like “Way to go! You’re the ace!”

In a $40 million federal lawsuit, five people arrested recently in Ferguson, Missouri, accuse police of using “wanton and excessive force” and treating U.S. citizens “as if they were war combatants.”

The suit — which includes accusations of intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent supervision, and assault and battery — details circumstances allegedly surrounding several arrests between August 11-13:

— Tracey White was about to buy an ice cream sundae at McDonald’s when officers “in what appeared to be army uniforms, carrying rifles and sticks and wearing helmets” entered and ordered her to leave, according to the lawsuit. She was told to shut up, thrown to the ground and handcuffed after criticizing officers for the way they were treating her son, the lawsuit claims.

— Dewayne Matthews was walking to his mother’s house when a group of officers in military uniforms shot rubber bullets at him, the lawsuit alleges. He fell into a creek or sewer, the suit says, where officers “pounced on him, slammed his face into the concrete, and pushed his head into the water to the point that he felt he was going to be drowned.”

— Kerry White was shooting footage and holding his camera out his car window when an officer snatched his camera, “took out his memory card and threw it to the ground,” the lawsuit says.

— Damon Coleman and Theophilus Green were peacefully protesting, the lawsuit says, when police in riot gear fired tear gas and what appeared to be stun grenades in their direction, then “hurled racial epithets at them, while punching and kicking them the entire time.”

here’s what I’ve learned and written down about brumation. let me know if there’s anything else I should add or if any info is incorrect.

signs of brumation:

  • grumpy, doesn’t want to be handled
  • inactive, lethargic
  • refusing to bask
  • sleeping a lot
  • attempts to burrow
  • staying in the shade
  • difficult to wake
  • eating less or not at all

feeding during brumation:

  • food can be offered, but don’t force them
  • if they eat, make sure they poop before letting them go back to sleep for long periods
  • they will nap on and off until they digest their last meal and poop.
  • food can rot in their stomach if they do not poop before going into brumation.

baths during brumation:

  • once a week to keep them hydrated
  • may or may not wake up during the bath
  • make sure to supervise
  • keep head above water
  • an inch or two of water

after brumation:

  • may be restless and wants to be left alone
  • may not want to eat for a few days
  • head bobbing, blackened beard, signs for mating preparation

other notes:

  • a vet checkup before brumation is recommended to eradicate any parasites before brumation occurs. while brumating the parasites will feed off of their fat stores and they will lose a lot of weight and become weak and ill.
  • a healthy bearded dragon can brumate for months and lose only a few grams of weight.
  • a simple cardboard box hide can be offered for them to sleep in during brumation.
  • brumation does not always occur in fall/winter, but usually does

what I’ve learned from my first 5 days in college: 

some people still need supervision, even when they turn 18

still not used to living with girls

I am not popular

engineering majors are cute

&, lastly but most important, never enough sleep

So my best friend and I have an AU where Auldurant joins star fleet and the Ace Attorney people are responsible for supervising their first expedition into space. 

So Jade becomes captain of the SS Nephry and travels into space with some rappigs. Luke and Trucy stow away on the ship because Luke wants to escape his normal life. 

Guy becomes an engineer training under Simon Blackquil.

Phoenix and Natalia are translators who always argue.

Ion and Anise are ambassadors. 

Edgeworth is Jade’s first mate and legal advisor. 

Klavier and Apollo are pilots. 

Tear and Athena are medical specialists.

And they call go on wacky journeys in space.

as head over heels as i am about the idea of steve/bucky wartime love letters, in all likelihood given the situation steve and peggy would be the ones writing letters. like, steve and bucky were never apart for long enough to need to write to each other but steve was with the howling commandos while peggy was running other missions/supervising ssr work and that’s how most of the war went for them. and they had to have been getting to know each other better somehow if he carried a picture of her with him but she never got the chance to teach him to dance so presumably they were rarely together in a non-professional environment even if they got to see each other at all

the point of this post is where is my steve/peggy wartime epistolary fic i need it 


no food goes unwasted: a victory in three acts
(alternatively titled “maybe that wasn’t microwave safe after all” or “dear lord, please don’t let me be an adult without supervision”)

act 1: fuck i had no idea the microwave would do that, now what

act 2: i am sorry, container friend, this is for the greater good


I’ve mentioned it in passing, but I don’t think I’ve actually laid out what the practicum thing is that I’m doing this semester and next. It’s like a service learning for social workers, and you get placed under the supervision of an experienced social worker at whatever organization. It’s basically the most important part of my major’s bachelor’s program. I wound up in an elementary school’s family resource center, and that’s what I’m out doing ungodly early on Wednesdays and Fridays.

it’s not about me.

Lauren Montgomery, supervising producer, conceived and drew this lovely, whimsical illustration of “Korra’s Spirit Parade” (which Sylvia Filcak-Blackwolf, Frederic Stewart, and I helped to paint/color) for the limited edition art print on sale at the Nick booth for the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con. I have seen the print with my own eyes and it came out great. Very high quality, detailed, and vibrant (unlike the soundtrack printing… *sigh*). Lauren will be at tomorrow’s Nick booth signing, so if you can get your hands on one of these prints, bring it by to meet her and have her sign it!
