europe day 1: iceland

this morning around ~7 AM we arrived in iceland!  both of our flights were really exhausting, but we made it!  first, we got breakfast at a place in the city center.  i had pancakes; they were amazing!  next we walked to the national museum.  i’m not much of a history person it was a little boring, but it’s alright.  then, we went back to our hostel and crashed for four hours.  unfortunately, our northern lights tour got cancelled because of weather, and i didn’t get to take that many pictures, which is something i really wanted to do.

this past week at school was really hard.  thursday night i stayed up until 5:30 in the morning trying to finish an EECS project.  we made improvements but didn’t finish.  the project was to code euchre, which is a michigan card game.  it’s the hardest project of the semester.  i’m honestly upset that i didn’t finish the whole thing but i’m glad it’s over!

tonight we’re making dinner in our hostel because food here is really expensive.  tomorrow morning we’re going on a golden circle tour, and then we’re going to try for the northern lights again.

Hi!

Hi, my name’s Cam and I’m thirteen! I’ve submitted before but only got a few short conversations that didn’t really last, so I want to try this again.
I’m from Michigan and am absolutely in love with Detroit. I love all the graffiti and abandoned buildings there is to explore, it’s pretty nice. I might be moving to Texas this summer, but that’s to be determined still ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I can play the ukulele, I do some digital art, I sing sometimes. I’m planning on starting a YouTube soon for some covers and stuff, if you any good video editors let me know!
Music I listen to:
-Green Day
-The 1975
-One Direction
-Panic! At The Disco
-Waterparks
-Twenty One Pilots
-Grace VanderWaal
-Shawn Mendes
-Ed Sheeran
-Probably a lot more!
Shows I watch:
-The Fosters
-Stranger Things
-Jane The Virgin *starting it soon*
-Skins *also starting it soon*
-Gravity Falls
-Bob’s Burgers
-Parks and Recreation
-American Horror Story
Let’s see, I’m a ftm transgender, I get political sometimes and get a little annoyed when people don’t think much of me because I am thirteen, but I am open to listening to other opinions! I can speak a little french, but let me tell you my french teacher teaches us granny french. Please don’t be older than 15, perferably be a boy, but girls are great too!

Reposting because I finally have better pictures of myself.

My name’s Jamie, I’m a 17 year old from Michigan, and I’m trying to grow my hair out because I recently realized I’m a lesbian after identifying as a transgender male for a few years.

EMERGENCY!

A very close friend of mine and her partner have been making a cross country move from California back to Michigan. I’m proud of them for making this honestly terrifying and courageous trip.

Everything has been going well, until now. They have a blown out tire and are being relocated to a motel by aaa somewhere about an hour outside of Des Moines. Getting this fixed isn’t in the budget. After paying for this, they will not be able to make it to Chicago. We both have friends in Chicago, and it’s only 5-6 hours from our respective homes in Michigan- so it is the bare minimum goal to get them there. If they can get there, they can be guaranteed to be safe.


PLEASE donate, or if you can’t do that, PLEASE SHARE WIDELY. This is an emergency and is time sensitive.

You can donate via her paypal here: tosebastianfromafriend@gmail.com 

You can find her blog here: @millionancientbees

If you have any other tips or solutions please message either her or me. THANK YOU FOR READING, PLEASE SHARE!

Michigan Gothic

• M-59 is a wasteland of traffic. The lights change, but no one moves. Your foot never touches the gas pedal, only lifts off and then returns to the brake. You don’t know how long you’ve been out here. You think you see a break in traffic, but it’s just a mirage provided by the heat rising off the engines.

• Every October, you can’t help but feel that the haunted houses and haunted farms dotting the mile roads may not just be costumes and red corn syrup. The metallic scent of blood is at the tail end of every deep breath of fresh air. You smile at the woman in the ticket booth, but there’s nothing behind her eyes.

• You stare out over lake St. Clair, huddling deeper into your jacket. Just past the horizon, you see something rising from the gray, muddled water. It takes you 20 minutes to convince yourself that nothing lives there anymore. But you know what you saw.

• The pot holes, God the pot holes. The grow and change at night, always just inches from your wheels. You grip the steering wheel and pray that you aren’t the unlucky soul they take as fresh blood tonight. Where does one go if they’re swallowed by something so unholy?

• You walk into Tim Horton’s. You could’ve sworn that yesterday this was a Starbucks. No, the barista replies, this has always been a Tim Horton’s. Her smile is just a a little too wide for her face. You fear it will stretch right off and onto yours. You apologize. Of course it’s always been a Tim Horton’s. You do everything you can to make her stop smiling.

• It is October. The Red Wings are playing. It is April. The Red Wings are still playing. They are always playing. They are always playing. They descend on the city, a cacophony of Languages that seem vaguely European, but fill you with dread. The playoff beards are older than you are. There is red. So much red. Everything you see is red. Everything you are is red. Where is it all coming from?

• Children play in the residential streets. They ride bikes, scooters, skateboards. They play hockey. They stand and stare you in the eye as you attempt to drive up their street. They don’t move. They never move.

• The sirens are going off. It’s the first Saturday of the month. The screams almost drown out the sirens. You don’t know where they’re coming from. They are miles away but in your basement.

• The sun is a myth. Heat is a myth. Shadows are myths. They are all simply elements of a ghost story told around a bonfire. The clouds part. Steam rises off of everything. Cold is a myth. Winter is a myth.

Do you think whenever there is a ufo sighting around metro city everyone looks at Megamind and he finds it confusing and offensive and is all like “Jesus christ you guys, you can’t blame me for everything!”

And do you think alien abductees try to contact him to get information about why they were abducted and what the aliens want from them and he’s just like “I’m from Michigan, i haven’t been in space since i was literally 8 days old! You’re guess is as good as mine!”
