I follow back all my followers, because ya'll are awesome (: I really love to play sports. My favorites are soccer, basketball, tennis, as well as dance. I love my extended family more than anything. We get along so well and always have a good time. I love swimming and tanning and reading a good book, but I also love snowboarding in the winter. I'm also into photography and just seeing life from a different prospective every now and then. I actually love when people come to me with their issues. It makes me feel like someone has trust in me and it feels good to know I can help someone through a difficult time. Feel free to ask me anything, I'll be happy to answer! :)
When we became friends, I had no idea how many issues you had in your life. But, what kind of friend would I be if I left you to handle those issues on your own? Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere.
I find it amazing that everyday, I plaster this fake smile on my face and act as though my life is just rainbows and butterflies when it’s not. Yet, today I found out that my best friend used to do the same thing. Two years ago, she contemplated suicide. She never went through with it. She never told me about it. And she still hasn’t told me about it. I had to find out about it from our other good friend. This lasted for two years, and those entire two years, I always thought she was on top of the world and having the time of her life. It’s amazing how you can try so hard to mask your own pain, that you don’t notice when even one of your closest friends is trying to do the same. I’m just glad she never went through with it. I honestly don’t know what kind of person I’d be today had she done so.
My absolute biggest pet peeve is when little punks at my school don’t stand up to say the Pledge of Allegiance. Myself and my teacher are the only ones that say it out loud everyday. All of the men and women putting their own life on the line wake up everyday and fight for your rights. The least you can do is stand your “too cool” lazy ass up and show some respect
So today as I was on a run, this younger boy just kinda sprints to catch up to me and then he just pinches me and runs away all because I wasn’t wearing green. Happy St. Patrick’s day to me
I wish Ikea was my bedroom, Starbucks was my kitchen, and Wanelo was my closet
Sometime in the early morning of January 1st, 2013, a Sussex, Wisconsin teenager took his own life. His name was Aaron Zagorski. He was an active athlete at Sussex Hamilton High School. Most people around the area knew him as #11 on their schools varsity football team.
Now, when I found out about his suicide, I got goosebumps. I didn’t know him personally, but people from my school, a neighboring town of Sussex, did. Over the last 2 days, Twitter has errupted with support flowing towards the Sussex community. Tonight, the students of Hamilton and even their rival schools got #ZStrong to trend. It’s not trending worldwide or even nationwide, but its still trending in Milwaukee and that’s a start. This was made possible due to the help from people of a higher status like Green Bay Packer Greg Jennings, University of Wisconsin Badgers football player James White, Indiana Hoosier Basketball recruit Luke Fischer, University of Wisconsin Badgers basketball teamates Sam Dekker and Zac Showalter, University of North Carolina Tar Heel basketball player John Pierre Tokoto are just a few of the names that have helped support this trend.
Now, our community isn’t dumb. We know that on average, around 88 people die of suicide each day. And pointing out one single kid isn’t going to change anything and it will probably just cause a lot of hate. BUT I would like you to reblog this for the link I am posting below. Because anyone who is even slightly contemplating suicide NEEDS to read this. It sent shivers down my spine when I read it.
When you commit suicide, your not only affecting your own life. You’re affecting everyone around you. Your family. Your friends. Your community. Think about it. You’re loved and appreciated more than you believe. Just because it isn’t so obvious at any given moment, it doesn’t mean that the love isn’t there.
