Stop Giant Music Festival from Harming Sepulveda Wildlife Reserve
I join with the San Fernando Valley Audubon Society (SFVAS) in opposition to holding the special event known as AngelFest in the entire eastern area of the Sepulveda Basin known as Woodley Park on October 7 – 9, 2016 and urge the Army Corps to not waive the conditions of the Special Events Policy and thereby not grant permission to hold the AngelFest event. The predictable negative impacts on the wildlife within Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve and the adjoining park areas that support foraging wildlife, as well as the loss of public access to the area for up to 26 days are intolerable.

Dear Tumblr, we recently learned that there is a large, 3-day music festival similar to Coachella being planned to be held at the delicate Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve. This wildlife reserve is close by my house and one of a few areas set aside for migratory birds and other animals within Los Angeles. 

Please take a moment to sign this petition to help protect migratory birds.

I try to keep things light-hearted on this blog, but with this Tumblr’s large audience, we can really make a difference to a large number of migrating birds. 

This musical festival could have a large negative impact on the wild birds that occupy this reserve during fall migration. 65,000 people are expected to attend each day and it will take around a month of preparation to pull off. The event will include pyrotechnics, flashing lights, loud music and litter is a huge liability. 

The Sepulveda Wildlife Reserve is a very special place for the birding community and all of its animal inhabitants. If you can voice your opposition against this irresponsible festival it would mean so much to the birds of Los Angeles. I have seen so many wonderful birds there, including nesting owls, egrets, ospreys, and even a couple of bald eagles have been seen there.

Help spread the word. Be a voice for these defenseless animals.

How to take drugs safely

So my city had a music festival this weekend and I just found out 2 people died and 57 were taken to the hospital. Now I use to use drugs and I do not anymore but I have a few pointers because I feel like the bigger drugs become and the new drugs we are creating where young teenagers are getting their hands on them and don’t know how to use them properly. Everyone wants to talk about not to use drugs but, no one wants to talk about how to safely use them if they choose to:

• DRINK WATER. DRINK TONS OF WATER. Have a bottle of water on you or accessible to you at all times! THIS IS IMPORTANT because you will get hospitalized and can die from dehydration. My friend smoked so much weed once and because she didn’t drink water she was rushed to the hospital from being dehydrated. And that’s only marijuana. Especially important if you’re at a festival.

• don’t mix drugs. Even weed and alcohol together just causes the spins. “Candy-flipping” sounds fun but it also sounds very disorienting which could lead to a bad time.

•don’t try to keep up with others, take things at your own pace. I promise you know your body more than anyone else and if they pressure you into taking more when you feel at your peak, tell them to fuck off. Because over dosing doesn’t sound fun and it can also lead you into a bad trip

•do it with people you trust and know very well for all of your first times. First of all, if anything goes wrong there is someone there to take care of you. Second, you trust where you’re getting it from. Third, can save you from terrible situations like rape or being robbed

• have a good playlist if you’re at home but if it’s acid don’t plan it because your music will base off your mood and if it’s Molly, you won’t stick to one song anyways

• trust me on this one and don’t shoot anything up

• if you feel yourself starting to think about whatever drug you’re doing too much, stop doing it. Addiction isn’t fun and someone out there cares about you and doesn’t want to see you go through that. (Except for weed but make sure you’re not lazy about it, you can be a productive stoner)
