safe high

Special shout out to the kids doing the morning announcements in Spider-Man: Homecoming for the most accurate portrayal of how terrible and awkward announcements are that I have ever seen.

the other day i was covering for one of our cashiers and a customer came through with a monster high doll. normally I’ll ask if the kid or whoever is a fan of whatever the person is purchasing and this person told me “yeah, she’s really into science and this one is sciencey, but i’m not too keen about the outfit”. i look at the box and nod and say “yeah, I don’t think open-toed heels are safe for a laboratory environment”. the customer just looked up at me with big eyes and whispered back “thank you for saying that”

Learning ASL, and Gaster’s helping. He’s still a bit too fast and delicately signed for me to keep up though, hehe

Signing a simple ‘Hello, my name is Gaster.’ 

Or at least I hope so ahahaha

*incoherent screaming* You opened prompts! Sterek: Not yet together sterek. The idea is a bath and Stiles how did you get that there?!? Thank you.

Taking Sterek Prompts | Filling Prompts Live

———

“Are you going to get in?” Stiles asked, peeling out of his last shirt, his words a little slurry around the edges. “In a- a- a-” He paused, trying rather unsuccessfully to shake his hand free of his sleeve. He started laughing uncontrollably and collapsed to the floor to work on his shoes. “The water, are you?”

“No,” Derek groused, pointedly not looking when Stiles flopped onto his back and began to shimmy out of his soaked pants. Black slime coated almost every square inch of the floor. “This is your bath, not mine.”

“Mine,” Stiles echoed, now just lying on the floor in a puddle of black, his pale skin coated head to foot in the gunk. “This is not my house.”

“Yes,” Derek agreed, as patiently as he could, checking the water’s temperature before turning off the tap. It had to be extra hot to affect the stuff. “This is the clinic.”

Deaton had explained that even minimal contact with the ichorous substance gave a contact high. Stiles had been practically drenched in the stuff when they had killed it. Luckily it was not deadly or even toxic- which was the problem. Someone had been keeping the creature as a pet, drawing out the fluid and selling it, and it had escaped three days ago to wreak havoc.

Very, very unfortunately, Derek had drawn the short straw for ensuring Stiles got cleaned up and came down from the high safely. Isaac, Boyd, and Erica were taking care of disposal of the body while Scott and Allison swung by Allison’s house to return weapons and report to her father. Deaton had been kind enough - or perhaps had enough self preservation - to give Derek the key to the clinic so he could get Stiles washed up away from his father’s questions.

“Come on,” Derek said gently, slipping from the edge of the tub to crouch at Stiles’ side. It was, he reflected, a very good thing that werewolves were not susceptible to the substance’s effects. “You gotta get cleaned up.” The effects wouldn’t wear off until every drop of the ichor was gone.

Stiles lifted his head, looking all the way down his lean form. “Oh, no, no that’s too far,” he told Derek, head falling back with an audible clunk he was probably going to feel in a few hours. “Wow, this is the best floor ever. Do you think I could take it home with me?”

“No,” Derek said with a sigh. Looked like this was going to have to be the hard way. He shifted, kneeling beside Stiles, and grabbed at his wrists to haul him up.

Despite that they slipped and slid a bit, Derek managed to get a very naked Stiles upright and across the three feet to the tub. For a second Stiles stood very still, holding tightly onto the edge of it like he was going to resist going in. Then he tipped forward and faceplanted directly into the basin so quickly Derek had to scramble to keep him from drowning.

“Hoooooo!!!!” Stiles shouted the second his mouth was above the surface, water sluicing away the ichor clinging to his skin. “It’s hot, Derek! This is really hot, why is it so hot? Oh my god, I’m melting!” He started grabbing at the black liquid coming off his skin.

Closing his eyes, Derek counted to three. Then five. Then ten, for good measure, and when he opened them again, Stiles had fallen very, very still and was staring wide eyed into the middle distance. It was not exactly an improvement, but at least he’d stopped thrashing, slopping water and ichor all over the floor and flinging it onto the walls and- and was that- on the ceiling?

“Stiles, how did you- you know what, nevermind,” Derek grumbled, reaching for the spray nozzle.

This setup was supposed to be for cleaning dogs, but it would work just as well for ornery, tripping humans. He began to run the spray over Stiles’ hair, watching the black give way to brown. When the tub had filled completely, Derek pulled the plug and let it drain. Diluted like this with water, it wouldn’t hurt the general populace; at worst, they’d all have a really good day soon.

Stiles’ eyes slid closed, and he relaxed into the gentle touches Derek used to turn him this way and that, to get at the last of the ichor still clinging to strange places like inside of his ears and between his fingers and- well, at least Stiles was unlikely to remember any of this very well tomorrow.

By the time he had gotten the last of it, Stiles had turned to putty in his hands, making a soft, pleasant humming noise that might have been purring on a cat. Derek swallowed hard, trying to keep it together. He still needed to get Stiles someplace to wait out the high, and get this place cleaned up so no one else would be affected.

Difficult to think of anything beyond the way Stiles pressed himself into Derek’s touches. “Feels good,” Stiles murmured, unwilling or unable to keep his eyes open. “You should touch me more.”

“Tomorrow,” Derek mumbled back, prodding Stiles to his feet. The floor was still covered in ichor, so Derek just leaned over and scooped a completely unresisting Stiles into his arms. Immediately, Stiles looped his own arms around Derek’s neck and burrowed his nose against Derek’s shoulder. “If you still want me to touch you tomorrow, I will.”

“Okay,” Stiles agreed muzzily.

He wouldn’t remember. No one else had. Still…

He allowed himself a small smile, and a measure of hope. Stiles had never been one for following the rules, after all.

I see a lot of “McNamara wears yellow because she’s the sweetest Heather!!! Duke’s green because envy!!!!!!” and that’s cool but also consider:

Red: Power/Strength, Determination, Rage, Leadership
                               note: we see Chandler wearing and owning a lot of pink things in the movie scene with her bedroom. I’ve always interpreted it being because she’s at home with her guard down and isn’t “wielding” her power, but since we’re talking about it Pink: Femininity, Weakness/Passiveness, Trust.

Yellow: Cowardly, youthful, loyalty, caution, lively/engaged

Green: Safety, personal growth/rebirth, wealth, poor health, disagreement

Blue: Intelligence, Trusting, Power, Felling Understood.

I think it’s also worth nothing that while we don’t see this in the musical due to the inability for constant costume change, we do see throughout their outfits patterns of different colors. Veronica, for instance, wears a heavy amounts of black, to the point where you could argue she wears it more than blue. When we see Chandler she wears mostly greys and white, Duke wears a lot of white to accent her green (and black when she starts wearing red), and McNamara wears black with her yellow. Veronica is the only one that wears outfits barely containing her color, if I remember right, aside from the short time Duke’s color switches to red. Related note, underneath JD’s heavy Black attire we usually see blue shirts, but towards the end they’re red.

Black: Mystery/The Unknown, Deceit, Depth

White: Feeling Safe, High Status, Faithful

Dear People In High School

This will mostly apply to girls but I think it’s still good advice.  If you have a crush on a guy learn how he acts in the boys locker room. Have a friend who is a guy who’s in the same gym class tell you if he talks disrespectfully of girls in the locker room.  For whatever reason locker rooms are where boys show their true colors, I’ve been on a ballroom team as well were everyone was pretty much family and got the same experience during shows and competitions which really pissed me off and I told the coaches what’s going on.  If you’re wondering if your crush will treat your well or is secretly a douche ask a trustworthy guy friend to tell you.  

I’ve had many friends that I had to tell “hey by the way your crush objectifies you and your friends with other boys in the locker room”  One friend still dated the guy saying “he’s changed” nope that’s just a play to get in your pants.  Said friend really regrets what happened.  Please be safe while in high school and I know it’s hard to tell which guy is a nice guy or secretly crazy but this should hopefully make it easier.

IMPORTANT for Northern CA friends:

Sonoma County is home to many undocumented and similarly vulnerable people.

Some are too scared to get help during these fires for fear of being deported. For people who can get there safely, Elsie Allen High in Santa Rosa is offering a sanctuary for people to safely go during this time.

Everyone is suffering and we must be there for the most vulnerable people in our communities.

Harm Reduction for meth users

Harm Reduction

EATING

In order to maintain the lifestyle of frequently using the user must eat. It’s no secret that eating on meth is difficult and seems like a chore. Instead a user must look at the bigger picture. Eating replenishes the things meth takes away in order to keep using meth you must have some more energy left in your tank. Simple as that. Then you must look at the health factors induced from meth, eating helps reduce these negative sides of the drug dramatically.The user will not quickly look like they are on drugs to the general public from rapid weight loss also. The user will more than likely not gain weight but if their normal weight is maintained most people will not suspect foul play which is beneficial in this lifestyle. “How is a user to eat with no appetite?” You may ask. Simple. The user must force themselves. Smoking marijuana may help. The “munchies” seem to make marijuana users wolf down tons of food. It may or may not take the edge off the users voided appetite at any rate if the user has access and enjoys marijuana why not try it? Stick to foods that are not dry. Keep a drink of some sort in order to wash the meal down with. Moisture in the food is key as users mouths tend to be dry. Making it painfully difficult to eat food.Fruits are a good option as they tend to have high water concentration in them which makes them very easy to eat. In conclusion users should keep themselves fed by not missing many meals eating healthy, and eating smart. Also use a mouth was called Biotene for dry mouth. Helps if you can’t swallow food and prevents meth mouth. Meth mouth is not cause by any “chemical” in the drug but is do to lack of saliva which naturally protects your teeth.

2. GOING TO BED

In order to maintain the lifestyle the user needs to do another body replenishing exercise known as sleeping. It’s recommended that the user make an attempt to maintain their normal bed time everyday. A speculator may ask. How is a user to sleep when the drug is made to keep them up and going? Simple enough again. Forcing and discipline. Eating a good meal prior to bed, quit using meth beforehand in order to relieve some of the effects. A good rule is stop 4 to 5 hours before the user would normally go to bed. In bed obtain the user should get the most comfortable position and lay there and prepare for a long night of tossing and turning. Even if sleep doesn’t come the user at least recuperated their body by relaxing. There are tricks to getting asleep. One is drink a lot of alcohol which is unhealthy but effective. Another is using sleeping pills which is still not very good for you. Then there is getting a mindset where the users brain just shuts off and they fall sleep. To do this the user must lay comfortably and start to think of a topic that drags on and on. Not really focusing on the topic but just kind of running it through their head. If it’s boring enough the user will normally get relaxed enough to fall asleep. 3 to 5 hours of sleep normally feels like an 8 hour night to a user while under the influence. If it starts getting late and the user feels like giving up and just getting more high, they shouldn’t quit trying. When the user gets for the day up they can use more meth in order to get over any lethargy and get on with their day feeling at least somewhat rested.

3. METH-MOUTH

A frequent user usually falls prey to some degree of this tooth decaying predator known as “meth-mouth”. This repulsive condition must be avoided at all costs to maintain the users mouth properly without looking like a toothless addict. This tip is a bit easier than the first two. It’s very simple, after smoking the drug, snorting, or whatever. The user will find it beneficial to immediately gargle mouth wash thoroughly, along with brushing with a good stiff tooth brush getting every last nook and cranny. Including the gums, tongue, anything reachable in the mouth. Doing this immediately after usage greatly reduces dry mouth caused by the meth’s ability to draw in moisture. It will not completely get rid of the meth particles as they are constantly flowing through saliva, but it none the less does have benefits. Another good way to maintain teeth is drinking milk to build strong teeth which most people have been hearing their whole lives. Teeth grinding is sometimes done without notice, gum isn’t very good for teeth but the user must weigh the pros and cons and choose whether or not to put a stick of gum in their mouth to avoid some tooth chipping caused by grinding. Paying attention to what your mouth is doing will help, and as stated before this will be easier to do if there is sleep in the user’s system.

4. EMPLOYMENT

In order to maintain this lifestyle the user must have a source of income to pay for the things they need along with the drug unless the user is cooking it which is not recommend and very dangerous. If the work place is a drug-free zone where random urinalysis are given. There are ways around this, the method is falsifying to your work and may result in termination, but usually not illegal depending on the users job. There are pills out there that are pretty expensive that if taken 3 hours before your urine test result in a clean slate on the test. They are expensive but very useful to a user. This pill can be kept on the user at all times easily for quick use in the event of a testing. What is not recommended is hauling around urine in a pocket. In order to use this it needs to be heated to register correctly which under pressure like that would be hard to do. Option 1 is simplest. The user must maintain the job, do what is expected, and earn. If this is maintained crime such as robbery, burglary, and any other profit gaining crime can be avoided with an honest income.

5. DEALERS

It’s vastly recommended that a user does not try to quickly rise up the ranks of dealers in order to find the next big thing. This could result in getting way to deep with less than reputable characters. It can easily land a user in the hot seat. It’s recommended that the user keep 3 trustworthy dealers in mind. Trustworthy people who are low key, that don’t talk about what the user does, and the user does the same back. The user must find which dealer fits the criteria of low key and decently affordable. The dealer doesn’t have to be the best bargain, convenience and security is more important but the user should invest in a scale in order to make sure they get what they paid for. If the dealer isn’t what the user thought then move on to another. Keep extra dealers to go to in the event the users current dealer gets in trouble or quits. No dealers means no substance simple as that.

6. SLEEPING AROUND

Not recommended but very passionate and energetic when performed. It’s no question meth increases libido, and users will probably find more than usual numbers of sexual encounters if the user socializes properly. It’s highly recommended during sex to have the male wear a condom unless they are committed to the partner. If safe sex isn’t practiced and the user sleeps with lots of people. The odds of STD’s and unwanted pregnancies are substantially high. Safe is better than sorry.

7. LOW PROFILE

In order to not get caught using or possessing the user must not tip anyone off of their usage with anyone besides dealers. Very easily the wrong people could find out and the user could easily experience being labeled a bad person by people who will tell others. Which could in turn make it back to their work resulting in loss of employment or authorities which could lead to jail time or mandatory rehab or both. A good rule of thumb to stay under the radar is think about it like this. For every 1 person that knows the user gets high it’s a 10% more chance they will get caught. So if 10 people know. The chances of getting caught are 100%. The user may as well stay quiet and enjoy their high alone knowing almost everyone is oblivious to what is going on. All the while keeping a relatively good status in society.

8. DATING A USER, Not Recommended

This is a recipe for disaster. It commonly results in arguments about drugs that get very intense due to the decreased levels of serotoninin the brain which basically causes lack of happiness after long term use. The chances of dating a user and it blowing up in the other users face some way. Is very high. Total trust in that person would be required. Freedom and life could be in the balance. It’s not worth it

9. DATING NON-USERS, Recommended

Hide the drugs. Don’t talk about it. Leave it out of the picture. What the person doesn’t know can’t hurt them. Keep going about the relationship as any other. If the significant other doesn’t even know. Why would the police or anyone else have reason to know? This tip may make you feel bad but it’s crucial to not getting caught. Also way healthier and probably in the long run will get the user to stop getting high.

10. HIDING PARAPHANALIA

Whether or not the user is living with others they still must practice hiding all drug related materials when not in usage in the off chance they get served a search warrant by police or someone stumbles across everything illegal. In picking the place to hide things the user must consider accessibility, and conspicuousness. Hide different items in different places, plain site can be good if their’s a false bottom or cranny that people do not see or touch. Possibly in a backyard shed, inside of an object in the shed, or buried if the ground is dirt depending on the item. Thought just needs to be put forth. Frequently used items should receive new spots two times a month to increase the odds of not getting caught. Consider if people would find what you are trying to hide as if they knew, and attempted to thoroughly look for it.

11. LEAVE THE STASH AT HOME

After receiving it immediately take the substance into your house and store it. Do not roam around town with drugs you could easily get caught if a cop pulled you over and suspected you were high. Leave drugs well hidden at home! Simple.

12. MONEY

Set money aside from your checks every week to pay for your fix. Be secret about what you make and where it goes. Act like it bothers you if people come asking. If others live in the house keep your paper money hidden until the dealer can meet you. Budget yourself properly in everyday life to compensate what you spend on the substance.

13. 2ND CELLPHONE

A user should invest in a prepaid cellphone or a wifi calling app like Textnow. they are fairly cheap and it’s great to cover up tracks. User’s should only use this phone for setting up deals and they should not add numbers of dealers into it. They should memorize them or write bits of them in different places. The user should keep this phone well hidden and usually turned off.

14. RATIONING

Using the drug in moderation calculate how much you can smoke a day according to your budget and health. Going overboard with it may lead to the user not getting high on what amount did it before which causes more and more being smoked as they go on. The user will find this takes a great deal of discipline. Starting off small and very slowly go up.

15. RATIONALIZE

Rationlizing is key to making decisions in this lifestyle. Decisions could cause or prevent harm. Trying to keep a clear thinking head could be the biggest battle of all for a user. Meth is known to easily change ambitions and ways of thinking.

QUITTING?

In the event that the user decides they’ve had enough of the drug or an event happened that provokes quitting they will need to be able to come down from the life peacefully if the user has enough discipline to follow all these tips and not get caught and keep a decent health. They certainly have enough to quit. Preparation is still needed to do this. What is recommended is that the user pick a stop day and request a week long vacation at their work. Stop on the stop day and sleep most of the week off that they got off from work also destroy any paraphernalia. At the end of the detox week they will be mostly back to normal but still crave the drug but discipline enough to know they decided to stop and not go back. Now the user must

re-evaluate life.

Hi. My name was Sarah. Was? You heard right. You may not know me by that name, but I can tell you many do. I might know you, and you think you might know me from social medias or classes or passes in halls but the truth is that that is a lie.


Hi. My name is Transgender. What is transgender? Transgender, adjective: โ€œNoting or relating to a person whose gender identity does not correspond to that personโ€™s biological sex assigned at birthโ€. Itโ€™s the realization that I now have the word that acts as a glue for all of my questions, my musings, my thoughts floating in a void known as the internet asking โ€œAm I broken?โ€ and โ€œWhat is wrong with me?โ€ and giving them a rope to tether them to the ground.


Hi. My name is Dysphoria. Dysphoria. Itโ€™s a mirror that follows me, a mirror that does not require a reflection, but I still see myself in it in the forefront of my mind. I can see it, even feel it - it whispers in my ear, a little reminder almost like an alarm that goes off the moment I feel comfortable in my own skin. It says โ€œWow, youโ€™re hardly passing today!โ€ and โ€œThat shirt can clearly show your chest!โ€ and YOUR FACE IS TOO FAT AND YOUR WAIST IS TOO CURVY AND YOUR VOICE IS TOO HIGH, AND, AND, AND -


Hi. My name is Chest Binder. A binder is one of the only reasons I feel comfortable most days, which I strange because this constricting tank top is one of the most uncomfortable things Iโ€™ve ever worn in my life. Wear it too long, ribs can bruise, even break - too little and you feel like you need ten more layers just to hide the visual that yes, my body doesnโ€™t match my name and pronouns. It can be so dangerous just to squish too pieces of fat to your body for safely as high as eight hours a day - sometimes 12 on a bad day - just to come home, rip off the proverbial Band-Aid and stare at yourself in that aforementioned mind mirror and wonder, โ€œDid anyone notice today on the street? Did they care?โ€.


Hi. My name is Pronouns. Letโ€™s take a second away from this one actually - did you know the gender binary doesnโ€™t exist? The gender binary is a system that says yes, this part is equal to that sex is equal to that gender is equal to those toys and those clothes and that appearance and this and that and this and - yes. It gets confusing unless you live by it and identify by it since the day you were born. But pronouns are one of those categories. Me? I use he/him and they/them. Itโ€™s okay to get tripped up, as long as you are actively trying to use them but the moment you just stop caring is a punch to the stomach that bruises and never heals cause it says, “You know what? Your comfort and preferred part of the binary thatย I live by as well is an inconvenience to me.” And of course, there is outside the binary and around the binary and under the binary - but I wonโ€™t get into that. This isnโ€™t a Psych lesson.


Hi. My name is Bathrooms and HB2. Hi. My name is Top Surgery. Hi. My name is Testosterone. Hi. My name is Crying and Packing and Expensive As Hell and Being Told I Am Nothing and Iโ€™m Really Fucking Scared Of Bigots.
