As an Aries, I approve this post.
Blink and you might pass it by - a blog for fandoms, cosplay, and whatever else I might find entertaining. Reblogs a lot of cosplay stuff and Shingeki no Kyojin at the moment. Eternal fan of Hetalia, Digimon, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Final Fantasy.
My dog, Choco, had been in boarding while I was in a no-pets-allowed residence and my mother was out of town. Boarding for dogs is not cheap, as we made multiple attempts to make payment arrangements and get Choco out of boarding before costs got out of hand, but the boarder pretty much kept her hostage and the amount owed surpassed $2000. After she’d been in boarding for a while, they declared her “abandoned” despite our constant communication and multiple attempts to pay and retrieve her by proxy.
This Monday, February 24th, my dog, my baby, was adopted out to another family. I am crushed. It was one thing when I knew she would be coming home, but to think that I might not ever see her again, I’ve barely been able to even function. My family only consists of myself, my mother, and Choco. She has gotten us through a lot of hard times, and without her helping us keep going, motivating us to push on…I don’t even know where we’d be right now. Things have been hard for us for the past few years, but Choco has always been our light and cheered us up even on the worst days.
My dog was not abandoned. Even the boarder understands this now, but adoptions can’t be reversed. All we can do is try to adopt her back from the family that took her. I believe that, being pet owners, even if the situation is awkward (e.g. if she is present for children, which I doubt for various reasons such as Choco is wary of children) they will understand my situation and the love for my pet and allow me to adopt her back. I intend to pay them back every penny that they spent getting her and whatever they’ve spent on her thus far.
But in order to do this, I need money, and I need help. Every bit helps. Even f you can’t donate anything yourself, if you could reblog and forward it to your friends, I would really appreciate it. There are also social media buttons on the page itself that will allow you to share on other sites. The only public thing about the shares is the number; visitors to the page cannot see what accounts you have shared it on and I cannot see that information either, so if you decide to share on a personal facebook or twitter that contains your name, your identity will still be protected.
Thank you for reading this, and thank you for your help.

When the scallop’s shell is gaped you can see two rows of tiny, bright blue eyes. These eyes aren’t the simple light sensitive eyes that most mollusks have, they can also sense motion. So a crab or fish trying to sneak up on one and grab some flesh before the shells close will be seen before it gets even close. And if the scallop loses an eye it simply regenerates a new one in its place.
An oldie, but one of my favourites :)

Quoted from Sarah Kendzior’s “Surviving the Post-Employment Economy"
“In the United States, nine percent of computer science majors are unemployed, and 14.7 percent of those who hold degrees in information systems have no job. Graduates with degrees in STEM - science, technology, engineering and medicine - are facing record joblessness, with unemployment at more than twice pre-recession levels. The job market for law degree holders continues to erode, with only 55 percent of 2011 law graduates in full-time jobs. Even in the military, that behemoth of the national budget, positions are being eliminated or becoming contingent due to the sequester.
It is not skills or majors that are being devalued. It is people.”
Her work is frank, speaking of a reality I hope that will never be mine. At the same time, it gives me a strange comfort to know that I am not alone.
Looks like Massachusetts has come around about the upskirt/peeping tom photos. New bill has been unanimously approved by the state Senate and is about to be signed into law by the governor that makes it a misdemeanor with up to a 2.5 year jail sentence/$5,000 fine, or if a minor, a felony with up to a 5-year jail sentence/$10,000 fine.
Problem seen, problem addressed. Good going, Massachusetts.
