There has been a terrible lack of posts recognizing the Philippine Typhoon and that’s why I’m making this post. The Philippines just had the WORST typhoon in history called, Haiyan. Now if you have no idea about the severity, the wind speeds of this typhoon was about 250 mph, which is THREE AND A HALF TIMES THE SPEED OF THE WINDS OF HURRICANE KATRINA. imagine the damage Katrina did to the US, a developed country. The Philippines is a Third world country. Most of the people in this country live in SHACKS MADE OUT OF TRASH. It is estimated that about 10,000 PEOPLE DIED. Dead bodies literally litter the streets and are STUCK IN TREES. IF YOU GIVE ANY SHITS TODAY ABOUT FELLOW HUMANITY YOU BETTER REBLOG THIS. IM NOT ONLY DOING THIS BECAUSE MY FAMILY IS FILIPINO BUT BECAUSE THIS STORM WAS THE WORST IN HISTORY. GOD BLESS THE SOULS LOST THERE. My parents were seriously almost on the verge of tears and almost screaming. We didn’t lose anybody in our family, but it has got to hurt to know that the place you came from is IN SHAMBLES. Pls spread this if you care

Joan Rivers called Jennifer Lawrence arrogant because Jennifer had this to say about Joan Rivers’ show:
There are shows like ‘Fashion Police’ that are just showing these generations of young people to judge people based on all the wrong values and that it’s OK to point at people and call them ugly or fat. They call it ‘fun’ and they say ‘welcome to the real world’ — and that shouldn’t be the real world. It’s going to continue being the real world if we keep it that way. We have to stop treating each other like that and stop calling each other fat.
Jennifer was asked for her opinion and she answered honestly. I find it hilarious that Joan Rivers, who makes a living by criticizing people’s fashion choices, is calling Jennifer Lawrence arrogant because she gave her honest opinion. I’m not sure that Rivers understands the definition of “arrogance”, because Jennifer didn’t say anything self-important or conceited.
Steven Liu, a student of ours, has unfortunately taken his own life today due to bullying and abuse by others. He didn’t deserve any of it. Steven was well know around campus. He was smart. He was talented. He enjoyed taking photos (shown by some of his photos above). He was athletic, he ran for cross country and track. And he was friendly. He would always wave to everyone and would offer to take your picture to put in his personal scrapbook. He would sometimes even offer you a snack or even a dollar to buy a snack if you were hungry.
He was also something else. I knew something was wrong with him. Steven was constantly hard in himself. Once in my class, for example, we were supposed I recite a poem we were supposed to memorize. He did great, but when he was done, he ran back to his set yelling he did a bad job as our teacher tried telling him other wise. Anyways this was his last year at our school.
When I was driving home I saw a figure sitting on top of the bridge. I did not know it was him. Hours later, I found out someone committed suicide by jumping. I found out it was him. I am still mad at myself. I could’ve helped and prevented it.
We paid or respects on that bridge (as shown by the third picture). The blood is still stained on the road.
Unfortunately, someone thought otherwise of his death, thinking he was “weak” and a “dumb ass.” I’m making this post not only as a memorial for a fellow classmate, but to also spread awareness of the causes of bullying and to please talk to Swaggy Younq Garcia about his ignorant comment.
Rest in Paradise, Steven Liu. We will never forget you.
I didn’t know him but I do know of all the wonderful things people have said about him and I can tell that this has been very hard on a lot of people I know. I don’t want to make an example and statistic out of someone but suicide due to bullying is something not enough people take seriously. Now, a student from a school I used to attend is gone and still, some people are taking it lightly.
i may be ugly and annoying but at least i don’t have a selfie of me as my phones background
Plastic is a short film that deals with the obsession of body image….Whilst Anna is preparing for a first date with Henry, a man she has secretly loved for years, everything goes wrong until she discovers the impossible - to sculpt her appearance like clay to any shape she desires. You can watch the whole film HERE
It ends a lot better than you’d think.
