anonymous asked:

Momma, my friend is 20, and is leaving with a highly abusive parent outside of Pittsburgh PA. She cant seem to find a way out, and every day tells me she wants to kill herself. She cant find work, and her mom does far more damage than good. Is there anything she can do?

She should look into abuse shelters in her area, as well as homeless shelters. If she can scrounge up a little bit of funds, she can get herself a 24 hour gym membership, so she can have a place to shower and go at night.

She’s old enough to do surveys to get a bit of cash, so she can buy some food or supplies.

I’m basically suggesting she find a way out, any way out. If she thinks she can stick it out until she gets a job, then all the power to her. If she can’t, there’s always a place to go, even if it’s hard to find.

Hey! Alright so. This one happened two years ago at a lovely convention called Tekkoshocon that is held in Pittsburgh, PA.

My husband, our friend, and I were chilling in an open area. We just got done with some panels and were figuring out what to do next. We usually spend out time in the dealers’ room and artists’ alley, so we were planning on going back to those next.

Before we could put that plan into action, this girl who I will call M, came up to us. She came up to us because of what her and I were wearing. Red and white sailorfuku in the style of Lucky Star. I wasn’t really~cosplaying~, I just felt like wearing it because I don’t cosplay anymore (financial issues) and it’s all I had that fit me from middleschool (20 at the time of this story now).

Help Me Please

So today 6/6/15 I went to Kennywood in West Mifflin, PA, which is in Pittsburgh and I saw this really hot emo guy with white hair but didn’t get his name. If anybody knows who this is tell him that a girl with purple hair thinks he’s hot af and wants to know his name!

Anybody who reblogs this, I will follow you and reblog one of your photos if it fits my theme!

In October 2014, I celebrated the release of 1989 AND being cancer-free for 868 days…now, it’s time to celebrate my 3 YEAR REMISSIONVERSARY with my fellow Swifities in Pittsburgh! SO EXCITED! I’ll be up high in 536, but we’re getting there pretty early in hopes of meeting so many of you who have been incredibly supportive. Please let me know if you’ll be there. Let’s party like I’m CANCER effin’ FREE. Woot Woot!!!
