7 species of yellow-faced bees were officially labeled endangered in September of 2016. Prior to that, no bee had ever before made the endangered list. These Hawaiian bees face so many threats that their outlook, even protected, is not good, however, the increasing research of them did aid in the discovery of 11 new species.

In incidents across the country, reported misconduct by black girls at school prompts a seemingly disproportionate — and often violent — response by school and local authorities.

Columbia University law professor Kimberle Williams Crenshaw and her associates, Priscilla Ocen and Jyoti Nanda, set out to explain why in their study, Black Girls Matter: Pushed Out, Overpoliced and Underprotected.

I remember the first night I spent with you, you fell asleep first and you looked so handsome. I couldn’t stop staring at you. So many emotions were going through my head. You woke up a little and asked me what I was doing, then put your strong arm around me and you put my head on your chest and fell back asleep. In that moment I realized I was going to love you soon. Really soon. Almost too soon. And I was scared, but safe.

Arriving home, I quickly locked the door. My back against the door I finally felt like I can breathe again. I closed my eyes only to open them after a few seconds. I could still see his eyes and that smirk, shivers running down my spine. I took off my backpack and placed it on a barstool in the kitchen. I took off my shoes and jacket. Being inside, I was warming up again, but only physically. On the inside I felt cold and uneasy. I hadn’t turned on the lights yet. I didn’t need to, honestly. The lights from outside illuminated most of the living room and the kitchen. But I felt exposed so I closed all the curtains in the living room and in my bedroom.

You’re in your bed, I’m in mine.
I’m in the wrong place.
Here I am laying in my bed,
Wishing I was in yours
Cuddled up in the protection of your arms
Where I can feel your warmth,
Hear your heart beating steadily,
You’d kiss my forehead
I’d feel your arms tighten around my body
And you’d whisper
I love you

Early morning sunlight pushing through my eyelids, I was slowly waking up. I felt so warm and comfy like I was sleeping on a big plush cloud. I hummed and stretched my legs deliciously, bumping them into another pair of legs. Then I remembered last night and how I fell asleep on Buckys shoulder. God, I hope I didn’t drool on him. I creaked my eyes open to see that I was still on the couch. I was laying on my side with Bucky behind me, left hand on my hip and a blanket covering our thankfully clothed bodies.
