Parents don't realize

That when they take away something their child likes as a punishment for bad grades, the grades are probably just going to get worse. These things and programs that the children like are ways to cope with the shitty education system and when those things are taken from them, yeah they might work harder to get better grades, but they wont have their stress relieving items anymore and it will leave them just totally destroyed and spent and empty to the point where they cant handle anything that happens anymore and they wont be able to go an entire day again and again.

Schools...

Teachers get paid very little to teach. Teachers deal with kids who don’t want to learn. Teachers are paid based off how well they teach the kids who don’t want to learn. Teachers want kids to pass by having learned something but are forced to teach them enough so they pass the tests. Some teachers actually care about the students and how much they want to learn. Teachers deal with rude children and talkers. Teachers don’t get paid enough to deal with some students bullshit. Substitute teachers get paid even less, and are hired based on past performance, regardless of how badly the class behaves.
Students are constantly stressed out. Students deal with huge amounts of homework, on average, 4-5 days a week. Students are trying to complete assignments and study for 6-7 classes a day. Students deal with teachers who don’t care whether they pass the tests, because some teachers get paid well regardless of pass/fail numbers. Students don’t get enough sleep at night. Many students suffer from untreated learning disabilities, like ADHD. Students are expected to know what career field they want to be in for the rest of their lives by 18. Some students are in debt just for wanting to learn.

NOBODY IS HAPPY WITH THE NORTH AMERICAN EDUCATION SYSTEM.

SIGNAL BOOST THIS SHIT

so theres this FUCKING AMAZING AND ODDLY ACCURATE movie that was released in 2016.“Middle School: The Worst Years Of My Life”. It deals with some insane shit many middle schoolers go through. i watched as a “reward activity” on the last day of 8th grade. it got cheers, sobs, and all around agreement THAT EVERY U.S. SCHOOL OFFICIAL NEEDS TO WATCH IT. It deals with school administration’s useless fucking rules and dress codes that suffocate children’s creativity and individuality. It shows what a principal will do, has done, and can do, to get perfect scores. Perfect scores that hinder a child. Perfect scores that turn us into mindless rule following robots. It shows the impacts of standard tests, both on teachers who agree with them, those that don’t, and the children being turned into robots from them. It shows how much a teacher that actually takes the time to understand and involve their kids can alter a kid’s life. IT ALSO HAS A PLOT ALONG WITH IT FOR A SHITTY FATHER, A MOTHER STANDING UP TO SAID FATHER, THE LOSS OF A TEEN DUE TO CANCER, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY; Rules Aren’t For Everyone.

so yea… even if you have no relation to the majorly flawed U.S. School system, watch it. It’s from a kid’s perspective that actually is in the system and is so accurate in it’s own goofy way. Especially parents and teachers- y'all in for an eye opener.

hello all!

my name is jade and i could use some help. my wife and i have run into a lot of expenses that are very important for us to be able to pay, but we both only work part time with hours that are being cut back, and get paid minimum wage on very inconsistent paychecks. we are both actively looking for other employment, but between issues getting legal documents, mental illness, and lack of transportation, we aren’t sure if we’ll be able to make ends meet

if you are able and willing to help us, we could really use money for transportation and lodging this summer. my paypal is asayacohen@gmail.com and if you aren’t comfortable just donating money, my wife and i are also willing to do writing, poetry, or playlist commissions in exchange for your help

Where is the help? Where is the help from the mainland? Where is the Department of Defense? The Government? Our Governor Rosello is doing his best but we need the kind of resources that the Department of Defense can provide in terms of setting up a communications system in order to provide the basic needs of the Puerto Rican people.

they are running out of supplies. the temperature is UNBEARABLE. diesel generators are keeping patients alive in Puerto Rico. The hospital floor is covered in a half inch of water. Dr. Iván González Cancel, cardiovascular surgeon, from Centro Cardiovascular in San Juan said ”If you are sick in Puerto Rico I have to say the best thing, if you can afford it, get on a plane and abandon the island.

“Signal does not conform to expectations.”

The message was not unusual in itself.  The investigation that followed was.

The junior on duty flagged the deviation message for investigation in the usual way and paid it no more attention.  Staff on duty the following day would follow up, he just wanted to get to the end of this shift and go enjoy his forthcoming holiday.  

The handover to the next shift passed most conventionally, he went off duty without a second thought to the deviation in sector N1MB.

The next shift worked through the log in time order as usual.  The N1MB signal was passed to the anomalies team for further attention.  

The anomalies team leader did pay a little more attention.  The signal type was one she had never encountered before.  A rhythmic series of short and long pulses.  No decoder currently in use could read it.  But the signal was clearly far from random.  She alerted her manager to this unexpected turn of events.

“Are you sure?  Run the decoders again, please.  Its probably just a glitch.”

“I’ve run them 3 times already, Glode, it must be a glitch on our system.”

“I’ll run them here, that should help us identify the fault.”

“Thanks”

Glode ran the signal through the decoder sequences.  “No match found.  Signal does not conform to expectations.”

Glode inspected the message crossly.  It was going to be one of those shifts.  He loaded the signal onto a second system.  “No match found.  Signal does not conform to expectations.”  He shrugged.  It was lunch time.  He set a scan to run on the machines to find the error while he ate.  

After lunch, he reviewed the log.  No errors found.  He ran the signal through once more, firmly expecting a different outcome.  “No match found.  Signal does not conform to expectations.”

Glode signalled the anomalies team leader.  “Matina, have you any more anomalies from N1MB?”

“I haven’t rescanned that sector, its not scheduled for another 17 cycles.  There is nothing in it recorded as even close to intelligent life.  There is only one planet with any life signs recorded.”

“Oh.  Can you run an extra scan and let me know if you find any more deviations?”

Glode looked up the planet with life signs in N1MB.  The Imaging showed a blue-green planet.  Zooming closer indicated land masses.  The remote scans indicated high levels of geological instability along with substantial atmospheric flows.  But life forms had been identified despite the apparently hostile conditions.  

Hardly any time passed before Matina signalled back.  “I’ve got a whole bunch of anomalies, Glode.  They all follow that pattern of long and short pulses, they are similar but not the same.”

Glode stared into the monitor, “This has all the indications of a new language pattern.”

BSD Chapter 53 (51.3) Summary

This  is part 3 of Chapter 51 “Echo”. Well, things happened quite fast and out of everyone expectation I guess. I myself think that it’s the calm before the storm but the storm itself might not happen so soon. 

Anyway, here’s some summary as usual… Trust me the kanjis in this chapter are killing me. So I skipped a lot of parts, as a lot of things can be understood just by looking at the picture already.

I most likely will make mistakes here and there, both English and Jap are not my mother tongue, but I hope I help explain something. I have seen people either getting excited or criticizing the chapter and I hope I can help pointing out some good things after all. 

                                               SPOILERS AHEAD

“To the scientific experts, who are familiar, in theory and experiment, with electrical vibrations, the results here shown will, I believe, speak in eloquent language. But those readers to whom they are naturally less intelligible will ask: What are they good for, and what do they or have they demonstrated? To them it may be said that they have shown and proved among many other things: That ordinary currents can be transformed with high economy into electrical vibrations of any pitch, which are needed in many novel arts; they have shown that electrical energy in great amounts can be efficiently and safely transmitted without the use of wires to any point of the globe, however distant; they have furnished proof that the movements and operation of bodies and machinery carried by the same can be controlled from a great distance without any tangible connection whatever and with absolute precision; they have proved the practicability of a system of signaling without wires, not with the imperfect appliances as before attempted, which can not be tuned and are rendered useless by the play of a small induction coil, but by means of apparatus producing powerful oscillations and circuits in exact synchronism, with which it is impossible to interfere; they have shown that atmospheric nitrogen can be readily combined and valuable products manufactured, merely by the application of cheap water power, and that light, diffusive like that of the sun, can be produced with an economy greater than obtainable in the usual ways and with lamps that never consume.”

“Beings Are Visiting Us From Other Dimensions” – Confirms The FBI

Back in 2011 after there were some important documents which had been “declassified” a report written by a special agent of the FBI in 1947 reached the public. This particular FBI special agent, who was a lieutenant colonel whose identity has remained anonymous because of “national security” had gathered numerous amounts of data on the UFO phenomena after interviewing and studying the phenomena for many years.

Key Points of the Transcript

1. Part of the disks carry crews, others are under remote control

2. Their mission is peaceful. The visitors contemplate settling on this plane

3. These visitors are human-like but much larger in size

4. They are not excarnate Earth people, but come from their own world

5. They do NOT come from a planet as we use the word, but from an etheric planet which interpenetrates with our own and is not perceptible to us

6. The bodies of the visitors, and the craft, automatically materialize on entering the vibratory rate of our dense matter

7. The disks possess a type of radiant energy or a ray, which will easily disintegrate any attacking ship. They reenter the etheric at will, and so simply disappear from our vision, without trace

8. The region from which they come is not the “astral plane”, but corresponds to the Lokas or Talas. Students of esoteric matters will understand these terms.

9. They probably can not be reached by radio, but probably can be by radar. if a signal system can be devised for that (apparatus)

Addendum: The Lokas are oval shape, fluted length oval with a heat-resistaning metal or alloy not yet known the front cage contains the controls, the middle portion a laboratory; the rear contains armament, which consists essentially of a powerful energy apparatus, perhaps a ray.

Shadows on the Subway

Summary: You’re traveling home when an unexpected interaction leads to deathly consequences.
(I know this mirrors the storyline of Clary Fray, but I couldn’t help but add some modern flare to it. Plus it’s such a good intro for a character to have into the shadow world!)

The air in the tunnel sucked in as the approaching train shot it’s way into the platform. You followed the crowd and stepped onto the tube, appreciating the space a 9pm commute offered and taking one of the quad seats. You stretched your legs out and onto the seat in front of you, prepared to stare out and do your usually post-work zone out. While it wasn’t the most stressful job in the world, being a barista at Java Jones always left your cheeks sore from smiling and mind cluttered with rude comments from caffeine deprived customers.On the plus side you constantly smelt like coffee.

The train took off, shaking a bit and the overhead light flickering on as the underground tunnel cut out the sky. Out of the corner of your eye you saw the closest person to you was a tall woman, pale and shaking. A druggie? you wondered to yourself, No. She’s dressed too nice to be a user, or at least one that would eat your face like that that guy in Florida…
Something was clearly wrong, and not just because she had chosen to rock a blazer with massive shoulder pads. Damn. You knew you had to ask.

“Ma’am, you alright?”
You asked, pulling your headphones from your ears and sitting upright.
She looked up sharply, her face flashing from shock to fear to something you couldn’t quite put your finger on.
“Well aren’t you sweet,” she said, wringing her hands, “I’m-I’m ok. Just been a long day. A long century.”
You laughed, “yeah I feel that.”
Her mouth turned into a smile, but you felt yourself instinctively press against the back of your seat. 
“Um, can I help you? Do you need help?”
“Yes actually, now that you mention it…” she said moving closer and taking the seat next to you. Crap. You had not intended to make friends on the train today. 
“I’m feeling a bit…well drained. I need something to help…” It was there, in the woman’s unnervingly steady eye contact that it dawned on you. The expression you couldn’t figure out earlier- it was hunger.
Instinctively you slid your hand into your jacket pocket and wrapped your fingers around your keys. Best case, she was going to ask for cash for McDonalds. Worst case you could use your keys and go all low-budget Wolverine on her face, and jump off at the next stop.

“You’re taking Fast Food to a whole new level.” You and the woman jerked your heads up to see a young guy with blonde hair and an annoyingly defined jawline. The woman grabbed hold of your wrist but turned her gaze on the guy. 
“Nephlim,” you heard her almost growl at him.
“Alive and in the flesh, which is more than I can say for you” he said, pulling out an object from behind his back and lunging towards the woman. Instantly she dropped your wrist and moved with ridiculous speed, appearing behind the guy-sharp teeth bared. But he was ready for her and ducked sweeping his leg under hers. As she fell you saw something glint in the guys hand. A knife. No. A sword? Oh God, I’m about to witness a murder!
“No!” You screamed running at the blonde guy. Surprised he turned to meet the exclamation and fell as your shoulder make contact with his chest. The weapon scattered out of his hand and you scrambled to pick it up. 
“Both of you just stop!” you shouted, holding the blade in front of you with both hands. “No one is killing..or eating…anyone!” Your hands were steady but your voice held a wild confusion. 
The woman smirked, “Oh, silly mundane.”

What happened next only took a few seconds, but felt like it was in slow motion. You saw the guy open his mouth wide, yelling. You saw something that reflected fear rise in his blue eyes. But you didn’t hear any noise. All of your focus turned to the woman, who’s grimace and hands reached out for you. Her skin so white it made her lips look they were covered in blood. And then they were. Blood coated her bottom lip and a trickle slid down her chin. Confused you looked down, seeing the blade your hands still clutched now stuck in the woman’s gut. Upon realizing what had happened time sped up to it’s normal pace, sending you falling back onto the nearest seat and the woman writhing on the floor. You looked across her to the equally shocked guy “You…I…I didn’t…” You didn’t know whether you should defend or explain yourself. 
“You shouldn’t of been able to do that. You shouldn’t of seen…” the guy muttered, keeping his eyes on you but picking up the body of the now still woman.
You looked down at your shaking hands, covered in blood so dark it carried tints of black. You wanted to scream but the reality of what you’d just done hollowed you out. “Oh God.”
Suddenly the PA system dinged, signaling the opening of the doors onto the new platform.
“Don’t.” The guy said, reading your desire to run. But you weren’t wanting to stick around. You may be running from the scene of a crime, but considering he’s the one who brought the weapon on the train, you figured you’d be justified in getting away from him. Right before the doors closed you grabbed your backpack and bolted for the platform, running past the people waiting to step on and up the stairs. You didn’t stop to warn people or explain; you just ran until you broke the surface and were standing in the open air outside the station doors. 
Breathing heavily and shoving your hands in your pockets you threw your head about making sure the guy hadn’t followed. When you felt you were alone you sunk to the cement. Images of the woman’s face, the smell of that blood that still stained your skin, and the guy’s final words as you ran overwhelmed you. 
“They will come for you.”

Guys I could really use your help right now. My 9 month old nephew Austin is in the hospital right now in North Carolina because he is having seizures(yesterday he had 9 in 10 mins) and we don’t know why. There’s a blood test that checks for genetic disorders that my sisters insurance outright refuses to pay for or even bill her for so she can have answers as to what’s wrong with her son and what they need to do to fix it. I don’t have many followers at all so please can you guys spread this like wild fire. Each day that goes on with no answers is agony.if can’t donate to his go fund me please just spread this. We need as many eyes as possible to see this. tag as many things as possible that people will see. Also if anyone is interested in buying physical items from me message me bc I’ll be selling as much as I can to raise money. gofundme.com/austins-future

Natural chemical helps brain adapt to stress

A natural signaling molecule that activates cannabinoid receptors in the brain plays a critical role in stress-resilience — the ability to adapt to repeated and acute exposures to traumatic stress, according to researchers at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

The findings in a mouse model could have broad implications for the potential treatment and prevention of mood and anxiety disorders, including major depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), they reported in the journal Nature Communications.

“The study suggests that deficiencies in natural cannabinoids could result in a predisposition to developing PTSD and depression,” said Sachin Patel, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Division of Addiction Psychiatry and the paper’s corresponding author.

“Boosting this signaling system could represent a new treatment approach for these stress-linked disorders,” he said.

Patel, the James G. Blakemore Professor of Psychiatry, received a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers last year for his pioneering studies of the endocannabinoid family of signaling molecules that activate the CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors in the brain.

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active compound in marijuana, binds the CB1 receptor, which may explain why relief of tension and anxiety is the most common reason cited by people who use marijuana chronically.

Patel and his colleagues previously have found CB1 receptors in the amygdala, a key emotional hub in the brain involved in regulating anxiety and the fight-or-flight response. They also showed in animal models that anxiety increases when the CB1 receptor is blocked by a drug or its gene is deleted.

More recently they reported anxiety-like and depressive behaviors in genetically modified mice that had an impaired ability to produce 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG), the most abundant endocannabinoid. When the supply of 2-AG was increased by blocking an enzyme that normally breaks it down, the behaviors were reversed.

In the current study, the researchers tested the effects of increasing or depleting the supply of 2-AG in the amygdala in two populations of mice: one previously determined to be susceptible to the adverse consequences of acute stress, and the other which exhibited stress-resilience.

Augmenting the 2-AG supply increased the proportion of stress-resilient mice overall and promoted resilience in mice that were previously susceptible to stress, whereas depleting 2-AG rendered previously stress-resilient mice susceptible to developing anxiety-like behaviors after exposure to acute stress.

Taken together, these results suggest that 2-AG signaling through the CB1 receptor in the amygdala promotes resilience to the adverse effects of acute traumatic stress exposure, and support previous findings in animal models and humans suggesting that 2-AG deficiency could contribute to development of stress-related psychiatric disorders.

Marijuana use is highly cited by patients with PTSD as a way to control symptoms. Similarly, the Vanderbilt researchers found that THC promoted stress-resilience in previously susceptible mice.

However, marijuana use in psychiatric disorders has obvious drawbacks including possible addiction and cognitive side effects, among others. The Vanderbilt study suggests that increasing production of natural cannabinoids may be an alternative strategy to harness the therapeutic potential of this signaling system.

If further research finds that some people with stress-related mood and anxiety disorders have low levels of 2-AG, replenishing the supply of this endocannabinoid could represent a novel treatment approach and might enable some of them to stop using marijuana, the researchers concluded.

ATTENTION AMERICAN STUDENTS

As we all know here in America the school lunches are a heaping load of shit and quite a joke to be honest. The portions they give us are never enough, it all tastes like they fished it out of a dumpster, and some of it has even been found to have mold on it so yeah I’m pretty convinced it actually was found in a dumpster.

There are limited options on what we are able to get and those options are even more limited when there is something we are unable to eat. I myself cannot eat fructose nor drink milk which is the default drink for school lunches here. One of my friends is a vegetarian and is constantly upset about the lack of options. The school doesn’t serve any vegan food to my knowledge aside from salad. Basically if any student has a need for something else besides what the school serves on a daily basis then they’re pretty much screwed.

I have decided it’s about fucking time we do something about this shit. I myself have decided to start protesting these crappy school lunches by bringing in my own lunches. Other people in my school have already started eating at the hospital across the street and some drive to restaurants and fast food places down the street.

Basically school lunch is shit. Don’t eat it. Don’t give the school your money at all. Bring in your own lunches or buy lunch somewhere else if you can. Spread this around. This shit really needs to change.


I’ve included some examples of some of my own and my friends gross school lunches under the cut. I was unfortunately unable to get any pictures of the sour milk my friends keep finding because I keep hearing about it after the fact of it happening. If I get more pictures I’ll definitely add them.

afraidrienforadrien  asked:

Since you're still taking prompts, I was thinking maybe a parasite in Lance or something? Makes him act really suspicious and everyone's worried

really interesting idea! i know I’ve seen a few post her and there with this, so I’d love to give my own try at it.

so the team goes to a planet completely covered in forests and rivers and to many it could look like a paradise. bonus points, the Galra haven’t taken it over yet. but when they get there, they were expecting to find some type of civilization, or intelligent life. but there’s nothing. not even animal sounds. Shiro gets a really strange vibe off of it, so he tells them to get what they need and to leave as soon as possible, and everyone eagerly agrees. so everyone goes off different ways to collect vegetation and whatnot. and before long, everyone is back in the castle and they leave the planet and back on to fighting the Galra.

except, something’s off with Lance. it starts off small, drinking more water after missions and training, always feeling a exhausted afterwards. but they think that he’s just needs to catch up on some sleep, that he just might have caught a cold.

but it progressively gets worse and worse. whenever their planet side, Lance is as perky and energetic as always, but if they stay inside somewhere to long, or when they go back out into space, he becomes sluggish and always tired no matter what. the team will find him in all sorts of strange places, sleeping away on the floor, halfway over furniture, even crashing in Blue. let alone how much water he’s drinking now. whenever someone sees him actually aake, he’s guzzling water down like his life depends on it. and the amount of showers he takes is just bizarre. sure he’s really focused on his looks, but 4 or 5 showers a day? that’s way too much. even for him. and the fact that Lance would always come out pink from the hot water really scared them, that he would just let boiling water hit him for so long to leave him looking like a lobster.

they want to say something about it, and Hunk and Shiro have tried, but anytime they bring it up, Lance just talks his way around it without actually giving away anything about how he’s been feeling. and everyone is seriously worried for him; scared that he’s going to give himself water poisoning.

then the itching started.

it was pretty subtle at first, but by the end of the day, he was scratching gouges into his arms and legs, not even registering that he was hurting himself, just saying that the itching had to stop, that he needed it to stop. that’s when the team finally put him in the pod. not only to heal him, but also to figure out whats been going on with their friend for the past 2 weeks.

it was a parasite that Lance had picked up while on the forested planet. it had somehow found a way inside of his body. but it was completely plant based, thus it’s need for water and how Lance would become so tired without sunlight. it seemed that it was trying to overrun Lance’s nerve system, trying to take over Lance’s body by overriding his nerve system first and make his body do as it wanted by sending it’s own signals through his nervous system and blocking the signals coming from his brain. the itching was because of it doing just that, and Hunk was able to connect the constant hot showers to the itching as well, probably Lance’s first attempt to quell the sensation under his skin to not tip off the others that something was wrong.

they keep Lance in the pod for a few days, knowing that the freezing process of the pod will stop any progression of the parasite, to do extensive research on how to get it out of their friend without doing more damage to Lance than what’s already been done. they eventually found a treatment that does the least damage to Lance and take swift action. they spray a specific type of plant killer into the pod, and once they were 100% sure that it was as dead as possible, they took Lance to a recent ally of theirs who had both the equipment and know how to surgically remove the parasite from Lance’s nervous system. 

it takes weeks of intense physical therapy after the surgery for Lance to get full control over his body again. there will be some spots that Lance will still scratch unconsciously, and if not pointed out or stopped by one of his teammates, he can start to make gouges in those parts again. but the team make sue to catch him if he starts going to far with it.


i hope you liked it! because damn did i have fun making it! thank you so much for the prompt.

#aroacehp

A new tag for aro-spec and ace-spec Harry Potter content! 

Please tag your own posts with it and spread the word! Here are a few thoughts on its use:

  • This tag isn’t just for headcanons! Tag your art, picspam/aesthetic, fic, meta, anything you like as long as it’s HP and aro or ace!
  • Content doesn’t have to include both spectrums in order for you to use the tag. It can be about just aro wixen or just ace wixen.

We hope the tag will make it easier to find the HP content you’re looking for!

Sleep, is it Optional?

I get out of school at 3:20, and I usually get a ride home from my brother who’s a dual credit student at the college my high school campus is on. After that, I frequently have to watch my nieces and nephew, sometimes even until past ten. I usually have somewhere around six hours of homework due the next day (I go to an ECHS charter school), and a lot more due long term. I rarely work on anything long term on week days. I usually have a couple days a week, however, with 8+ hours of homework. After I get home, make dinner, and do some chores, I end up starting this work around 5:15. On these nights, I work until midnight then count on lunch the next day and my 30 minute study hall to get the rest done. If I can, I’ll go to sleep at 9:00, but rarely get to bed before 11:30, and frequently work into the next morning. 

I’m also in a few clubs, working on my GS gold award, Presidential Gold Service Award, and am beginning SAT prep because I’m not stupid and I want to get into a decent college. 

Every day I wake up at 6:00. Sometimes earlier if I still have homework, and I have consistently woken up before 5:30 before. It takes me about half an hour to get ready, then 5 minutes to walk to my friends house, 5 minutes to make coffee, then 10 minutes to walk to my friend’s high school. By then, it’s usually around 6:50. The campus is large and it usually takes me almost ten minutes to get across is to where my bus stop it. My bus picks us up from there anytime between 7:12 and 7:30, but usually around 7:15. It takes just under ten minutes to drive to my school, where I sit around for about 30 minutes until study hall starts at 8:00. 

Adults say that it’s my fault I’m falling asleep in my classes. My parents have yelled at me for being anti-social because all I do when I have free time is sleep. They say I stay up too late playing online. My school nurse has suggested I ask a doctor about the possibility of getting me on depression and anxiety meds when someone found me hyperventilating in the bathroom. People think I’m on crack because my skin is pale, my eyes bloodshot, and I have huge circles under them. I used to exercise daily and now I haven’t gone on a run in months. My school has to have anti-suicide seminars at least once– sometimes twice –each quarter. 

Adults tell me it’s unhealthy to drink the amount of caffine I do (somewhere between 3 and 6 drinks a day, half of which are energy drinks like monster and rockstar). They get 8 hours of sleep a night and don’t have the idea of college loans hanging over their heads. 

I am 15 and I haven’t had a good night of sleep in almost five years.

About half my school is on illegal drugs to help them stay awake. 

Why the fuck do people think this is healthy?
