Bastille - Pompeii (Acoustic, Live in Paris)
I’m so in love with this minimalist performance that so many bands are doing lately. The acoustics in this room are absolutely haunting - must have been such a magical place to perform. Seriously beautiful, check it out.

Light dusting of snow and sunshine. Hello, Winter. Nice to see you again.
This being human is a guest-house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you
out for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
I’m almost done with EMT school, and I can verify this 100%. We don’t give a shit what you’ve taken or how illegal it may be. We want to know what and how much so we can save your ass. Unless its directly related to a crime scene in some way, we don’t tell.
It makes me enraged and also deeply saddened that the police state has become so entwined with every aspect of our lives that people are afraid to tell the truth to people trying to render them with emergency care. We’ve broken ourselves.
Boost because everyone should know!!!
Also, if you have to have a rape kit done, you need to tell the SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) if you are drunk or high — again, they cannot tell the cops about it — but they legally cannot do the exam until you are sober enough to consent to it legally. Meaning that if you are fucked up and don’t say, it’ll turn up in the bloodwork, and then it’s possible for a defense lawyer to use that to get the whole kit THROWN OUT AS EVIDENCE. An intoxicated person who turns up to the hospital for a rape exam is given a safe place and time to come down/sober up, and THEN the exam is done. Also, when they’re testing for rape drugs, they need to have an accurate idea of your intake so that the numbers will make sense. Remember, what you’re saying to the SANE is subpoena-able, so you need to tell her the TRUTH if you don’t want some sleazeball defense lawyer using minor details to get your rapist off the hook.
Here is two weeks of outfits, including brown and grayscale values.
On the last day the kids said I looked like an angel (and Princess Leia).
Art teachers are the best!
A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face she inquired, “How heavy is this glass of water?” The answers called out ranged from 8oz to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If i hold it for a minute, its not a problem. If i hold it for an hour, i’ll have an ache in my arm. If i hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer i hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for a big longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything.” Always remember to put the glass down. —
don’t worry, be happy now

According to NBC News, the outbreak, which killed 10 infants and sickened more than 9,000 others, was the worst the state has seen in 60 years.
A study released Monday in the medical journal Pediatrics analyzed the outbreak pattern and tracked the number of children whose parents filed for “non-medical exemptions” from the state’s vaccination program. Non-medical exemptions are given to families whose children are well enough to tolerate the vaccine, but who refuse to administer it to them anyway for religious or other reasons.
The California Department of Health identified 39 statistically significant geographic clusters of families seeking non-medical exemptions and two major zones of whooping cough cases. According to the data, non-medical exemption families were 2.5 times more likely to also live in an outbreak zone. —

wow its almost like if u dont get a vaccine for a horrible disease youre more likely to get aforementioned horrible disease who knew
This is a situation that calls for compassion, no matter where you stand on the matter of vaccinations. Watching an infant sicken and die from respiratory disease is harrowing to say the least. No matter how easy it is to point at them and call them dumbasses, or to say ‘they get what they deserved’, it’s important to remember that it isn’t YOU who’s going to be hearing that cough, dreaming of those endless, futile hours in the ER, and carrying the guilt of that one, well-meaning decision like an anvil on your shoulders for the rest of your lives. There is nothing you can say to, or about these people that will make them feel any worse, any guiltier, any more punished than what they’ve already lived through, so if you’re gloating at their expense, then you’re just doing it to make yourselves feel superior. And that’s not really all that superior at all, as humanity goes. Pointing to this as an argument to support vaccinations? Fine. It’s data, and data is free to any use, but keep the morbid smugness out of it until you can say that you’ve stood in those shoes, and walked that grisly mile, please. Anyone can make a decision that hurts someone else — Everyone makes those decisions every day, and usually they don’t ever see the consequences face to face. So try and have a little compassion when you talk about this, okay?
Good morning, Thursday.
