People get tattoos once they've found there soulmate
-people wearing shorts to show off that one tattoo that’s just formed
-people wearing a tonne of clothes on the summer just to hide the lack of tattoos
-people loving someone but the Tatoos not showing so they draw them on
-a girl crying in the rain as concealer is washed away revealing ratios everywhere,
Her soulmate died and she was left with them and she’s trying to move on
-or she takes pictures of them not wanting to forget him as they slowly fade away
-adults moving because the baby’s soulmate was the same gender and they found out through a play date
-the child growing up with a single tattoo on his shoulder
-his grandfather is deathly I’ll so they have to go back and he meets the pizza delivery guy
-a tattoo begins to form on his wrist as he hands the money over
-a man and a woman bump in the street coffee spills everywhere and as it soaks through you can see a tattoo beginning to form
FIDGET PAD (by WeFidget on Amazon.com)
pardon the lighting, as it was hard to find anywhere quiet to make the video. if you see me struggling, it’s not that it’s difficult to operate but it is difficult to show it on video with one hand.
i have a bunch of fidget cube knockoffs at this point and this one is my personal favorite. this is the fidget pad by WeFidget on Amazon.com sold by ZOND, so if you get it from a different company or seller or website, it may be different from my description.
anything in brackets “[ ]” is my personal opinion and your experience may differ.
1. the joystick has a rounded top, not a flat one. here’s hoping it doesn’t become squeaky like certain other knockoffs. [i find it comfortable.]
2. two silent buttons and two loud clicky buttons. [these have a good feel of slight resistance to them, even the silent ones.]
3. two spinning “gears” that click. they resemble a combination lock. [i absolutely love this one.]
4. a silent roller with tiny bumps on it. there’s resistance when rolling it.
5. there’s a line of tactile bumps on one side of the pad. very stimulating.
6. there’s a “paddle” on one side that you can push and it will snap back into place.
8. a spinner. it has no resistance, in fact, it’s very loose - but won’t just stop in place when you spin it, it has some momentum.
9. two holes for a small lanyard, which came included for mine.
overall, i feel that this fidget pad is well thought out and well designed. it doesn’t feel cheaply made, but its durability is to be seen. the exterior is a velvety, matte plastic while the features are more of a plain shiny plastic.
also, you can fidget with this with two hands as opposed to just one. for me, it’s much more comfortable in the hand than a smaller fidget cube.
i recommend it. if you have any questions about this specific product, send me an ask. this fidget pad goes for around 12-14$.
Some things about Net Neutrality being threatened that I haven’t seen many comments on:
- The OOOONNLY people benefiting from this possible rollback are corporate shareholders.
- The removal of NN would result in few if any new jobs whatsoever, so any argument that it would help the economy is null and void (btw, we’re not actually in a recession anymore, in case anyone still thought that. The US’s economy, while it has plateaued in actual growth at about 2%, it’s actually pretty high in the business cycle.)
- Limitation and partisan censorship is a major concern (I lied that one is what everyone is talking about)
- In fact it will HURT online businesses, which will damage the small business sector in general.
- And last but not least: It is going to have a majorly negative impact on the education system. I just finished highschool in May and let me tell you, even rural schools are getting more and more technology and internet dependent. Students frequently, if not regularly, are sent home with online assignments. How can students possibly be expected to finish an online homework assignment if they can’t even remotely begin to afford internet? This is already an issue in rural and poor and POC dominated areas, and should Net Neutrality be removed and access to the internet be placed back into money hungry corporate hands, it will be an even more massive and far worse problem that will only perpetuate low education levels in these areas. what if their assignment requires research on a website that their partisan provider has decided to censor? You get a zero. Especially if you’re a college student that can’t afford another $150 a month just to get ok-ish internet speeds.
- This gives me great concern for marginalized and outcast kids. The internet has been one of the very, very few places where LGBT+ and POC children and people in general can go and feel safe and accepted and loved and celebrated for how/who they are. Imagine that that’s the ONLY place you feel safe and okay and then that gets taken away from you. Early teen suicide rates are already high enough.
This is all just a disgusting money grab by the GOP and other politicians who are invested in cable and cellular companies. Call or message your congressional representatives to oppose. Drown them in resistance. I’ve already found several posts with links that let you do that.
Summary:When you confessed to Richie, you got the expected response, but that doesn’t mean it hurt any less. Not even a week later he decides to talk to you, not so subtly jealous about you spending time with Ben. Things sort of…escalate from there.
Warnings:Cussing andKissing. (oh no, not kissing! *parents screaming, children crying, Ohio catches on fire*) This is a request. DON’T HESITATE TO SEND IN REQUESTS. (Don’t send in like 50 tho. I still need sleep.)
“Can I t-talk to you.”
Richie stops laughing at Stan and, still giggling, turns to you. “Yeah, what’s up?”
You glance over Richie’s shoulder to see Beverly shoot you a thumbs up. “I’ve been, well- It was Beverly’s idea! But for a while now…” You stumbled over words, trying to soften the embarrassing blow of ‘I have a crush on you’.
“I like you!” You blurt, deciding to get it over with. “I l-like you as more than a friend.”
There’s a moment of silence in which you count the seconds that painfully tick by.
One. Richie’s mouth opens and closes, you can see his eyes dart to the other boys. They’re whooping and hollering, pushing him and giggling like idiots.
Two. You can feel the headrush hit you hard, along with waves of nausea.
Three. Teasing smiles stay on the boys’ faces, but Beverly’s melts off. She knows. She knows what’s going to happen.
Four. Richie’s ears turn fire hydrant red as you grow pale and faint. His eyes once again scan the boys, who continue to tease without mercy. You close your eyes, wishing they’d stop. There would be nothing to celebrate.
[W]hile there has been some success in uncovering genes which make people
more susceptible to various disorders, specialists say that the true
causes of depression and anxiety are from life events and environment,
and research should be directed towards understanding the everyday
This should come as a surprise to no one. Genes don’t just express themselves without an adequate environment for their expression. If there’s a set of genes that, for example, reduce serotonin production in response to stress, there’s almost nothing you can do about the gene, but you can remove the source of stress.
I think one reason psychologists have refused to accept this position (it isn’t new, or even that extreme, although it is radical in the sense of “getting to the root of things”) is that it demands an analysis of the social conditions that lead to mental illness. In addition, the corollary of “mental illness has social causes” is “society can and must be changed”. Most psychologists have no interest in analyzing society, let alone asking for it to be changed (most of them make good money just handing out prescriptions). If you can blame DNA, or the human brain, you never have to step outside of your patient or even recognize that they actually exist in the social world.
