I broke my hunx button during Shannon and the Clams’ set at NXNE and I am actually rly upset about it still :(
awwww man, Emily bought me a skull glass as a PERFECT grad/goodbye gift (I have four plastic ones already, each purchased at the beginning of a new school year, so it’s a legit thoughtful/symbolic present) and I am just so stoked that I had the opportunity to spend eight months with these flawless babes.
I’m going to miss all my roomies SO MUCH :(
Child Abuse PSA of the Day: A kid builds himself a heartbreaking costume in this powerful spot from UNICEF.
May leave you speechless.
It’s actually really important to me to have this on my tumblr, because one of the things that baffles me is how often I have the “What are you taking in school? Oh, I could never do that,” conversation with people I meet. This is why. Behind every story that’s difficult to sit though, there’s a kid who’s just trying to survive. That’s what I remind myself while we go through particularly harsh case studies or in that moment when children disclose to me. Someone has to be there to advocate for them.

Blue Jays traded Travis Snider to the Pirates.
I have so many feelings about this and all of them involve sadness.
Seriously not exaggerating when I say that I actually wept through the entire 10 minute process of finding out that this is a thing that’s happening, discovering that there are still tickets available, and then frantically messaging Kayleigh/Zani/Court because the BRAND NEW CLIQUE IS ETERNAL (paging Ryan and Jac to this post). Really though, as much as I love using the phrase “bummer summer,” I think it just became irrelevant to my life.
I feel like the less I say about this, the more likely people are to actually hit play. It speaks for itself and it’s more important than any of the bullshit we’re all looking at on the Internet tonight. A photo of Morrissey’ll get reblogged six thousand times but when it comes down to truly looking at whether “meat is murder” y’all are cowards.

So, before my best friend moved away to be a person who is grown up and responsible and in love, we were planning on seeing Deer Tick when their tour hit Toronto. However, we clearly did not go, AND THIS IS A THING THAT HAPPENED.
LEAH, ARE YOU READING THIS? I MISSED GOSLING AND MCCAULEY IN THE SAME NIGHT. I may never recover.
On one hand, I’m glad I can finally let go of my irrational hate for Aaron Hill (and stop accidentally yelling at people who wear Hill jerseys to the bar), but JOHNNY MAC? You’re breakin’ my heart here. The least they could do is bring back Snider so I can start using the “meats don’t clash” tag again.
