this is not a drill this is reality

Yesterday, at school, just about the entire police department of my city was on campus because it is now mandatory that officers practice a school shooting drill which honestly just breaks my heart because I live in a state where guns come second only to God in terms of what laws people care about, so evidently it is easier to just anticipate such tragedies as mass shootings than to have sensible gun control. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad they’re doing the training because I do feel safer knowing they have a plan, but it’s just unfortunate that this is our reality in which it is necessary to do so.

Joey and Chandler’s domestic dispute: parental responsibilities

anonymous asked:

I wouldn't say it defies science and reality any more than any other faith. Most aren't claiming to physically be an animal, just the soul of one in a human body, which isn't any more farfetched than the concept of a soul in the first place. But i'm not gonna drill you about it or anything, i just thought it wasn't really nice to call something delusional when it's a really important belief for a lot of us.

it doesn’t matter how important a belief is to you. if it’s directly contradicted by real life it’s wrong. the fact that you have the mind of a human being directly contradicts the idea that you are an animal in a human body. i think you’re probably a kid so i wont try and say you’re crazy or anything, but you need to realise that just because you feel really strongly about something does not mean it’s true.

anonymous asked:

You know when you gotta keep doing reps of drill and youre tired but the drum major says one more time but in reality its 10 mores. Youre tired, thirsty, and you wanna die. Well this could be like that. You just gotta keep pushing yourself

Thank you anon. It was understandable, and it was a great one. 

Not being one to agree with physics or what certain divine beings think he’s planning, Bill decides to get things rolling. Literally, as it were.

Instead of drilling into the earth the demon instead decides to draw the core out from the Earth’s center with his powers. Hopefully Eris would enjoy the ride. Being chained to the core of the planet couldn’t be good for her…

I’ve looked into my mirror every day
Yet somehow my face has changed
Beyond my most firm recognition
Into a man I don’t recognize

Who am I?

People whisper in my ear
Yet my flesh has melted away
And I am left here, nothing but a skeleton
Of the being I once thought I was

What am I?

A bone thin hand held up to moonlight
Constellations drilled into the bone
I’m leaking marrow everywhere
Staining my reality with dreams

Why am I?

A purpose filling the soul of a being
A vessel empty, seeking to be filled
With cooler waters than empty air
And fire burning bright into the night

When am I?

A clock spinning endlessly into the future
Never stopping even for s single moment
As my hands twist and creak
Breaking the minutes into hours and then into days

Where am I?

This place is as unfamiliar as my face
Unshaven and aged beyond memory
A valley of dead dreams I can’t fathom
Yet I seek the mountain of truth on the horizon

Am I real?

Or just an imagined thing
Written in diaries to be remembered
When I craved only
To be left behind and forgotten

OC 30 Day Role Playing Challenge - Lyra Hawke - Day XV

xv. Is your character an early morning bird or a night owl? 

Definitely a night owl.

Growing up, Lyra was expected to not only help in looking after her siblings and her family’s meager plots, but to also attend lessons between her parents, most of which required her to rise with the sun. 

Malcolm was a little more strict about it than Leandra (always emphasizing the need to practice magic when it would be the least obvious), so more often than not, all of the Hawke children were up at the break of dawn working under their father’s tutelage; Bethany and Lyra ran drills while Carver took care of the outside chores like drawing water and leading the animals out to graze.

In reality however, she hated getting up so early. Lyra had a tendency to be restless before bed, always anticipating whatever awaited her in the Fade, it was often well into the twilight before she managed to settle down enough to sleep, which certainly made waking up at dawn a nightmare.

When she got a little older, in a fit of proper teenage rebellion, Lyra took to sneaking out and roving over the backwoods, menacing the countryside with the other kids her age. She saw that as a better use of her time and that mentality carried on into her adult years, fostering a habit of fighting through the night and crawling home at sunrise.

Alternate Realities

I once had a friend who was a compulsive liar. I truly don’t know why she gotta make shit up and it got really ridiculous.

She told me she got stabbed before, she was doing events for Prada, Bakerzin got their cheesecake supplies from her and most incredibly, she went to Victoria’s Secret fashion show - it is invite only.

Now, I am not the kind to just nod and let it slide. I always call that shit out. After much drilling she told me everything was a lie. No shit.

What was fascinating was how she didn’t blink an eye when telling the story as if she could have properly believed it happened. And now most things I hear or read from her I don’t believe at all. We are not friends anymore.

I wonder why people are like this. It’s so fucking sad and pathetic to make up a story like that when it’s so transparent. No your life is not fabulous people can see through your bullcrap.

I think I would respect a person with a boring life more than an outright liar.

Homelessness Rises in AISD
More Austin students than ever have no permanent address

What makes this even more worrying is that this 30% increase over the last two years comes as AISD’s enrollment has remained functionally static, and state support for homeless student programs has basically flat-lined or collapsed.

Drilling down, the numbers for where these students are sleeping makes for depressing reading:
• 2,078 living doubled up with other families
• 275 living in motels/hotels
• 271 living unaccompanied, often with friends
• 249 living in shelters
• 46 living unsheltered, in vehicles or in squats

Moreover, this study does not touch on the number of families who move regularly, chasing cheaper rents. That’s incredibly disruptive to the education of students, who may find themselves in a new classroom multiple times in the same school year.

The reality of modern homelessness is that, while it’s tough on anyone, there are remarkably increased strains on homeless families. Many shelters will only take single people, while others are only designed to take women and children, meaning families can sometimes be divided.

March Against Hypocrisy! Seattle Solidarity Action with Shellno Alaska

Seattle, Washington - While President Obama meets with world leaders in Anchorage for the GLACIER Conference, the Shellno Action Council here in Seattle will hold a funeral procession and “Die In” for the Arctic to highlight Obama’s hypocrisy. This month, Obama granted Shell permission to drill into the hydrocarbon zone in the Arctic while also saying he wanted to protect the Arctic and the climate.

The Seattle action will take place on Monday August 31st, from 11:30am to 1:30pm, beginning at Occidental Park and ending outside the federal building on 2nd and Madison downtown. The protesters will march in funeral procession from Occidental Park to the federal building where they will stage a “Die In”. The event will point out the grim reality of Arctic drilling that will destroy the fragile ecosystem of the Arctic, as well lead to over 2 degrees planetary warming, causing climate catastrophe and mass species extinction.

Shellno Action Council (SNAC) is standing in solidarity with Shellno Alaska’s four demands of President Obama: 1. A rapid transition to renewable energy; 2. Cessation of exploratory drilling in the Arctic; 3. Protection of indigenous peoples’ rights and communities; 4. Binding agreements at the 2015 U.N. Climate Change Conference that are on par with what science has shown is necessary for a livable future.

Carl Wassilie of Shellno Alaska says: “We have to represent the voices of those who can’t speak, including future generations and the animals. Arctic drilling is a violation of the human rights of the indigenous peoples of the Arctic. Obama and Shell are bypassing many laws designed to protect our coast and our communities. Obama needs to start listening to the peoples of the Arctic who oppose Arctic drilling.”
