expensive teste


This is my 3 year old rescue, Skye for guess the breed. Unfortunately, I don’t know what breeds she is (dna tests are expensive), but I hope someone on here could help me out. She’s about 2" 6’ at the shoulders and around 45 lbs, likes to run and howl at anything that passes by outside. I think she’s a hound (probably beagle or foxhound)/terrier mix tbh but who knows. Her mother also looked pretty similar to her as well

i FINALLY was granted a referral to an actual real life pain specialist–just waiting on them to call me to schedule an appointment once the referral goes through. the facility specializes in interventional pain management which i feel like makes sense for the intense nerve pain i’ve got going on–smth like a pain pump or neuroablation sounds like it could be really helpful but i’m also hoping they’ll be willing to try some medications first (like neurontin) or like. i’m up for fucking anything…my doctors have just been blaming it on some underlying hail mary mystery problem (how many brain tumor scares have we been thru at this point, lads? 5?) without ever trying to address my symptoms, just putting me through rarer and rarer expensive (and sometimes painful!!!!) tests…i’m ready for some actual relief, yall.

‘Beauty and the Beast’ Star Dan Stevens Plays Beast to James Corden’s Belle in Crosswalk Musical — Watch

Ready for yet another remake of “Beauty and the Beast”? No? Too late!

On Wednesday’s “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” the host and his intrepid group of pavement players tackled the “tale as old as time” in the crosswalk at Beverly Boulevard and Genesee Avenue (in front of CBS Television City). Joining the troupe this time were the film’s stars including Dan Stevens (aka the Beast, aka “Downton Abbey’s” Matthew, aka “Legion’s” David Haller), Josh Gad (who plays LeFou) and Luke Evans (who plays Gaston).

Corden tested the three actors to see if they were sufficiently tough or beastly enough to take the rigors of crosswalk performance and the cars that they might have to dodge. Once the roles were rehearsed, Corden opened the musical in drag as Belle… and he didn’t look half bad.

Gad became a crosswalk musical convert. “Who wants to do it in front of millions of people in a film when you can do it in front of half a dozen Lyft and Uber drivers here?” he said.

Take a look at “Crosswalk the Musical: Beauty and the Beast”:

“Beauty and the Beast” is Bill Condon’s live-action musical remake of the Oscar-winning Disney animated feature of the same name. Emma Watson stars opposite Stevens as Belle, and is also joined by the voice talents of Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen and Emma Thomson.

The film will be released nationwide on Friday.

"Diabetes Isn't Even That Bad"

Hey type 1 diabetic here. Let me tell you why the statement above is a load of bullshit.

1. Our bodies are waging war against themselves

2. It takes us longer to heal when we get hurt and it takes us longer to recover from illnesses because our immune system is jacked

3. We could die at any moment without warning

4. Low blood sugars feel like you’re going through drug withdrawals

5. High blood sugars feel like your body is drying out like a fucking raisin

6. Afraid of needles? Well tough titties! We need to prick our fingers 3+ times a day, and either pierce yourself every 3 days for a pump site change or take 4+ injections everyday

7. Our organs are slowly failing

8. We have a high chance of going blind

9. We could lose our feet and legs

10. Insulin is expensive as fuck

11. Testing strips are expensive as fuck

12. The constant highs and lows drain us

13. We can’t just eat food right away. We need need to calculate how many grams of carbohydrates are in our food, test our blood sugar, configure in a correction if need be, dose, and by the time we take our first bite; everyone else have already finished

14. Doctors are expensive as fuck

15. Pumps, Meters, and CGMs are expensive as fuck

16. No one ever takes our illness seriously

17. Having children is VERY risky for lady diabetics

18. The constant fear we have when we go to sleep knowing that we might not ever wake up due to low blood sugars at night

19. The bruises and scars all over our body from YEARS of injections, site changes, and finger pricks

20. How our feet and hands are always freezing due to our poor fucking circulation

So tell me again how our suffering “isn’t that bad”

Make another joke about the worst thing that has probably ever happened to us

Laugh again when you say “All of this food is going to give me di-ah-beet-us”

Just know that you sound like a huge asshole to us actual diabetics.

Okay, let's get some things straight here.

In light of a recent debate with some idiots on another social media platform, I need to rant a little.

Mutts are NOT inherently healthier than purebreds. You can get a dog with half the problems or you can double them. It depends on the dogs that bred.

Breeders are NOT the problem. They go through weeks upon weeks of studying the genetic history of their desired pairing, going through generations of health testing and medical history.

Breeders do NOT turn a huge profit off of “their animals’ reproductive systems.” By the end of health testing for mom and dad, the process of whelping and all the supplies needed for that (and everything needed on hand in case a puppy gets rejected), shots for pups, and so much more, the price they ask for one of their pups barely covers what they’ve already put into them. Breeding is expensive. Testing eyes and hips and elbows is expensive. Testing for the breed’s common genetic defects is expensive. Don’t tell me that breeders are only doing what they’re doing for the money, because that’s the exact opposite of the truth. They do it to better their chosen breed and eliminate as many genetic defects as possible. They do it to give people predictable traits in healthy dogs that will fit the purpose for the animal.

Again, breeders are NOT the problem. There is a clause in most puppy contracts stating that if, for any reason, NO QUESTIONS ASKED, the person buying one of their puppies can no longer care for the dog, they are to return it to them. Breeders’ pups aren’t the ones getting abandoned and tossed into shelters wondering when their people will come back for them. They aren’t the dogs that get lonely and confused and cold.

“Adopt don’t shop” is REALLY STUPID. Shelter animals aren’t right for everyone. People with small children may not want to risk bringing a dog into their homes that could have some unknown past trigger that leads to one of their kids losing their face. That’s just not ethical.

“Adopt don’t shop” is ALSO STUPID because any dog that goes into a home just for the sake of having a home does not necessarily go into the right home. You know what happens to the dogs that go into the wrong home? They get landed right back in the shelter. The guilt trip that is this whole campaign leads to dogs going to the wrong homes and being sent back to where they were before.

I’m all for adoption. But I’m also all for breeders. I want every pet to be able to have a loving home to call their own. I want them to be safe and well cared for. I am for the responsible addition of a loving pet into the right home.

I am for responsible pet ownership.

Adopt or shop, it’s your pet and your choice. But don’t go around bashing people for choosing the other option because you’re a self-righteous prick.

Hello guys!

Here’s the thing, my money situation is slowly getting better, but I seriously need some help.

I want to become an English teacher. I’m giving lessons every week and I absolutely know this is for me. Now I need to actually go to university to study it properly. For that to happen I need to take a so called TOEFL test so they can make sure that I am fluent in English. The problem is, that test is expensive as shit. We’re talking around €200 here. Which I cannot afford.

So to pay for it I’m opening 

Emergency Soft Style Commissions!

Here’s the deal, send me an e-mail to cola_ene@yahoo.de with the details. I’ll draw anything except nudity, porn, racist shit, gore. So no NSFW. 

You could seriously save my life.

If you feel like donating, my paypal is lisawienholz@yahoo.de

It would mean the world to me if you could help me fulfill my dream and even if you can’t help finanicially, spreading this helps!

Thank you all so much!

Confession: I am a Black American (meaning, I’ve traced my families’ lineage all the way to the year of 1686). I’ve been raised in communities where its residents were from African countries (for instance, Liberia, Nigeria, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, etc.) and from South Asian countries as well. With that being said, if you’re interested in “finding your roots” outside of the United States, I suggest you start by participating in a “ancestral gene test”. Warning: they are expensive. 

Depending on which test you buy, the results will give you a better understanding, because it would be offensive (toward Africans) by “picking and choosing” factors from different cultures and claiming them as one big culture. Keep in mind: Africa is not a country. It is a continent that is home to multiple countries, which has hundreds of cultures.

IMO, it looks fucking tacky-as-shit when a person co-opts one particular thing from one culture and another thing from this culture and another thing from another culture… And then claim that ever since we’re all Black, it is okay. It doesn’t work that way.

For me, if you don’t give a shit about the people (and ALL of the culture) and you don’t want to contribute to their growth and treat them as people, then leave their cultures alone.

During your searches, you’re bound to come across people, who will not be open to you and that’s okay. If you find people who are willing to provide you with info and helps you become immerse in a culture, appreciate that shit.

Guaranteed, you’re going to say something that is going to offend someone. Apologize. Just apologize.

8 badass young women who are changing the world.

Jordan is a conservative country, especially when it comes to women’s issues. Yet the most popular Jordanian web show, FemaleShow, is hosted by a woman and attracts 25 million viewers, according to Women in the World.

That Elizabeth Holmes recently became the youngest self-made billionaire to make the Forbes 2015 Female Billionaire List at age 31 is impressive. What’s arguably even more impressive, though, is how she did it: Her company, Theranos, developed a quicker, more convenient and less expensive blood testing technology — an affordable medical solution with the potential to save lives.

Can a piece of paper revolutionize the way we eat and even curb food insecurity? Kavita M. Shukla believes her special sheets, known as “FreshPaper,” can do just that. The potential of Shukla’s invention is astonishing. FreshPaper, a five-inch square sheet of paper infused with edible ingredients, keeps produce fresh for up to four times longer than has been previously possible

“Fat is not a feeling,” Rothstein notably states in her viral video of the same name. “When I feel fat, I know that means I’m feeling something else and it’s worth figuring out what that is.” Rothstein’s advocacy on body image and eating disorders goes beyond this single video. The writer, spoken-word poet and president of the board of directors for Mental Fitness Inc., created an entire series of videos about body empowerment.

Compton, California, was once a city notorious for its crime rate and gang presence. These days, Compton should also be known for its effective mayor: 32-year-old Aja Brown. The leader, who has multiple degrees in urban planning and economic development, made history as Compton’s youngest mayor when she was elected in 2013 and has been applying her skills to help her hometown ever since.

UPDATE (12PM CDT): The hearing for SB 1911 has been cancelled for today. Deep breaths.

If you are able, please go to the capitol TODAY and register in opposition to SB 1911. It aims to drastically strip away the amount of care shelters can provide for the community’s animals.

If passed, thousands of lives will be lost in the Austin area alone. Some of the immediate impacts include the discontinuation of these life-saving programs at Austin Pets Alive!:

  • The parvopuppy program, which saves 85% of the 500 dogs with parvo saved from regional shelters each year by using, as a baseline treatment, old school methods of care.
  • The ringworm program, which saves 100% of the 250 cats saved with ringworm each year using the lowest cost methods available, leaving out expensive testing.
  • The bottle baby kitten program, which saves 90% of 1600 neonatal kittens brought in each year (a higher save rate than any published survival rates in breeding facilities and nature.) This program would be considered out of compliance because there is no published “standard” outside of what APA has created for medical treatment of these babies.
  • The entire medical program, which spays and neuters every animal in their care and treats severely injured and ill animals year-round available so the highest number can be saved.

These numbers don’t include the other thousands of lives that would be lost across the rest of the state.

Are You Sure? - Calum

Requested by anon - Hello love, can you do an imagine with Calum where he and the girl have been broken up for sometime but she finds out she’s pregnant and decides she needs to tell him but when she goes, he’s already with someone else and doesn’t even give her the time of day so she leaves but runs into Ashton on her way home and she tells him what happened and he goes and tells Calum

I realize that I left this a bit of a cliff hanger but I think it’s the best way to do things like this.

I look down at the test one more time hoping that I have read it wrong but knowing I haven’t. It says positive 12 -14 weeks and I know if it tells you how far along, it must be true. I have taken 4 different tests before this with the idea that it could not be right but on this last try, I went with the expensive test. I could see it now, people are going to ask me how I have gone for 3 months and not worried about my missing period but I was not shocked because it happened all the time. My body was so irregular that I didn’t notice from one month to the other and Cal and I always used condoms. I sat down on the toilet seat cover and took a deep breath in. I was going to have to tell Calum that he was going to be a dad but how do you break that to someone. Sure, I imagine that if we were still together, it would be okay, maybe even an occasion to celebrate but Calum and I decided to break up after I read a small article that showed a picture of Calum and another girl in a tight hug before sharing a kiss. By small article I mean huge and by huge I mean every magazine I saw had it on the cover. “The scandal” as they were calling it was proven to be a photoshop edit that tricked even the best, but the arguments that Calum used during our fight over it proved that he was not ready to be in a committed relationship. Here we are though, as committed as you can get. Half of the DNA of the child I was carrying is Calum’s and he deserves to know. 

I pick up my phone and dial Calum’s number but when it goes to voice mail after only one ring, I know he hung up. This isn’t something that one can leave on a voicemail so I decide that I will just have to walk over to his house and see if he is home. Calum only lived down the street from me so it was not worth the drive and I was hoping the extra time it took me to walk there in comparison to drive, would help clear my head. I made it over there and knocked.

*Knock knock knock*

A girl who looked about the same age as me answered the door and I stared. 

“Uh hi, can I help you?” She asked me. I shuffled my feet and looked back at her.

“Yeah is Calum home? I need to speak with him." 

"Who is it babe?” I hear from behind her and the door opens a little bit more. Calum and I lock eyes and he ushers the girl into the house before turning around to me. “Please just leave Y/N. It’s not a good idea for you to be here.”

“Cal, I need to talk to you please.”

“No, I said go home. I have someone here and I’m going to spend time with her” He says it a little harsh and I feel a burning in the back of my eyes but I don’t want Calum to see it so turn on my heel. I fast walk down the driveway until I almost forcefully run into Ashton. 

“Whoa,whoa” he says as he puts his hands on either side of my shoulders to steady the two of us. He seems to just have noticed who I was because he bends down a little to look at my face “Y/N? What are you doing here? Are you okay?” I wipe the tears that had started to fall. 

“No but that doesn’t seem to matter to Calum” I tell him. 

“Oh” he answers me with a bit of venum in his words and I look up. “She is here isn’t she?” he asks.

“I guess you guys don’t like her?" 

"HA! No. Calum is the only one who can’t see that she is just a rebound on his end, a means to get over you even though he isn’t over you, and that she is just using him for publicity because she is trying to start up a modeling career.” I shake my head and let out a little puff of air. 

“Sorry to hear that. I have to go” I try to go around Ashton before more tears could fall but I failed. 

“I don’t think it’s the best idea for you to be walking down the street crying and alone” he tells me and turns around, walking towards my house. “So why don’t you tell me why you are crying.”

“Not like it’s going to make a difference Ashton” I say. “Calum clearly wants nothing to do with me so why would he want anything to do with a child that is half me.” Ashton stops walking immediately and gently grabs my arm to stop me. 

“I’m sorry. Say that again.” I can tell he is confused and I don’t know why until I realize what I said.

“I didn’t mean to tell you like that Ashton but I wanted to tell Cal but the girl answered the door and he told me that he didn’t want anything to do with me and here we are.”

“You’re pregnant?” He asks, still in shock.

“3 months. Turns out that the condoms he got when we were in the U.K. didn’t work well enough for us.”

“You are sure?” He has his hands on both sides of my arms again slightly pushing in. 

“Positive, just like the 4 tests I took” I tried to make a joke but neither of us laughed. 

“You need to tell him. I don’t care if that girl is there. Serena and Calum won’t be together by next month anyway and to be honest, I think she will leave once she hears and it will help show him her true colors.”

“NO!” I practically shouted. “Ashton, I don’t want her to know. What if she goes to the paps and tells them. I don’t want that. If Calum pushes me away and doesn’t accept this, I don’t want magazines reporting about how he doesn’t love his son or daughter. That’s not right” I rush.

“Okay, okay. We will tell him in private but we have to tell him!” Ashton turns around and walks back with me to the house. I stop before we make our way up the step to the door and Ashton turns.

“Do you really think this is a good idea?” I ask him and he puts his hand on the small of my back, ushering me up the stair. He knocks a couple of times and opens the door before yelling.

“Hood! Get your ass down here! I need to talk to you!” I see the girl who I have learned is Serena, standing at the top of the stairs roll her eyes.

“What are you doing here?” she sneers at him. 

“Oh shove it blondie. I need to talk to Calum alone. Meaning without you.” he says back with attitude and she puts her hand on his hip. 

“Who says he wants to talk to you? He already kicked that bitch out” she points to me and I step back out of the house with intent on walking as fast as I could out of there but Ashton doesn’t let me. 

“You have no choice. This is now a business meeting and you have no say in that so unless you want me to use my powers to destroy your life, I’d say you leave and tell Cal that I’m here.” I have never heard Ashton sound so rude to anyone in my life. One time he got punched in the chest by an angry boyfriend and he was nicer to that guy then he was being to Serena. She scoffs and turns to the bedroom. 

“She is back. This time she has Ashton” she says his name with acid. Calum pokes his head out of the room as Serena is grabbing her purse and keys to leave. She tries to kiss Calum extendedly but he pulls away and looks at me before looking at the ground. Once Serena is out of the house and the door is closed Ashton runs his hand over his face and sighs. 

“You didn’t want to ask Y/N why she had shown up after 3 months at your door?” Ashton asks him. “You didn’t think she would have a good enough reason after the shit you told her during your fight?” Calum shifts his body uncomfortably.

“I thought it would be better if she would just hate me” he admits. My heart shatters and I can’t hide the tears that threaten. 

“Even after all that you said Calum. I could never hate you. I was trying to do what would be best for you and leave because then you could have freedom to kiss whoever you wanted. Clearly it was the right choice for you.” I pointed my thumb at the door to signify Serena. Ashton scoffs again.

“You may be able to be nice about it but I can’t anymore. She has got to go Cal, she is all wrong for you and this will never work out. Her agent is getting her gigs solely based off of the fact that she is dating you and you can’t let someone use you like that. What would your kid think?” Ashton was ranting and much like me earlier, he didn’t know he let it slip. The color in Calum’s face drained and he took a step forward. 

“You…We….I have a kid?” I could see his mind flipping through all the things that mine did when I found out. “You are pregnant? Are you sure it’s mine?” I took a step back when he asked me that. I thought it would only be one step but my body had a different idea. 

“I can’t believe you think I could get over you quick enough to have a kid with someone else” I gasp out before me feet started running. I was out the door and down the block before I heard any noise from behind me. Two sets of feet pounding on pavement when I reached my door. I turned around, locked it and slid to the ground. I could hear Calum on the other side saying things like “Please baby” and “if I had known, I would never have been able to be with someone else” but I stopped listening. I would take a lot more then that to get me to come back out there.


Im so done with some in the WA fandom.

Some Westallen fans are too aggressive and bitter. Apparently now they shit on Emily because she is included in the Flash DVDs. Why so hateful? Candice and Grant didn’t do a screen chemistry test from what i know. Only a reading test. Screen tests are expensive and the Emily/Grant one happened way before the Flash was official announcenced to be made. Way before anyone other than Grant from the Flash was cast. It was done during season 2 of Arrow. The reason the screen chemistry test happened between Emily and Grant is because the EPs wanted to know if Grant works well with female actors since they wanted to make the Flash with him. Since it was expensive they put it in the Flash DVD because why wouldn’t they? It makes money. Screen tests are not usual on CW …STOP HATING ON EMILY….its not Emily’s fault Candice and Grant didn’t do screen chemistry test. Maybe they didn’t need to, becasue the EPs saw the chemistry and didn’t need further proof. The Emily/Grant screen test wasn’t done about just Emily and Grant’s characters’ chemistry. It was done to examine how good Grant works with actresses since it was the first time he was working with the flarrow crew. So it is about the main protagonist of the show.Your show…you know,THE FLASH. It had to be included.  You do know that right?  Don’t make everything look as if they try to sabotage your ship or your fave. Take your fave’s words about women being close to each other and stop tearing down one to support another. Candice is a sweetheart but some of you guys…

Stop trashing Emily to Kreisberg and the others, its hateful.


Urban Decay have this moon dust eye shadow pallette which is so space. I am telling you this because if you want eye shadow which is very Star Trek but withiut being Mac. The Mac make up is very expensive, repackaged and test on animals.
So i wanted to share this in case you want Star Trek style make up but from a better company and better priced (also the blue shadow here is easily a dupe for the blue trek one MAC sells)
