I’m starting a blog for the mentoring program that I work for here at NAU. Can any of you suggest blogs that might be appropriate for that? Cute baby animal blogs, blogs dedicated to mental health awareness, recipe blogs, anything that might somehow relate to college freshmen. It doesn’t have to be a tumblr, it could be a website or anything that might be relevant.
(Yes, I’m that kind of dork, don’t judge!)
I’m really excited because my last two semesters before I student teach are going to be a breeze! We’re talking like 13 credits each semester, days where class doesn’t start until 12:45 pm, one class on Fridays, plenty of time to fit in my work schedule… I mean, it’s actually going to be magical.
Next semester will be the first time I take a semester with less than 17 credits. I’ll only be taking five classes, 13 credits. I have NEVER had a semester like that!
Man, I’m pumped. To think that there’s only 9 classes standing between me and my student teaching. Getting a freaking degree!!!!
And then getting married!
Things are finally falling into place. Now I just have to hold onto the good mood this has put me in.
HAPPENING NOW [VERY IMPORTANT]: Venezuela’s soldiers are killing their people. The Government is sending their armed gangs to kill them and they have censored all the media in their country, even blocking photos posted on social media sites. They shut down all the cable channels that broadcast news, so they can’t know what’s going on. The people have no source of protection at all. Students are protesting to save their country and their lives at this very moment. All they have are their social networks to get the word out so, PLEASE RE-BLOG THIS AND SPREAD THE WORD. VENEZUELA IS ON THE BRINK OF A CIVIL WAR AND CLOSE TO BECOMING A FULL COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP. THEIR PEOPLE NEED YOUR HELP. —— Please, this is very important to me, one of my closest friends went to visit family in Venezuela over winter break and they won’t let him come back to Florida. We’re graduating in a few months and it hurts me to know that his baseball career and all of his hard work and dedication to his grades here in the U.S. was all for nothing. Please.

one of my friends is in the middle of this shit right now and it’s terrifying, she said their twitters are getting blocked so they can’t share info, their murder rate is the second highest in the world and none of the murderers go to jail because they’re government supporters, they can’t find basic household items or food in their supermarkets, their economy has plummeted, inflation increased over 50% in the two months since 2014 started, airlines have basically left the country because the govt owes them so much money, they have no access to cars or car parts, they can’t cross any borders because their govt controls them and no one is helping them.
it is fucking pissing me off that no one is helping them when they’re asking for it and need it so much. And I am so frustrated that theres not more I can do than share things like this to spread the word, that I just have to hope enough people see it that something gets done.

And I went to my ask box, and did not have such an ask. And now I am sad that Tumblr led me on. :(
In other news, my 20 minute nap turned into a 3 hour nap and it was marvelous. Now I can stay up all night and get stuff done. d:
