But please help these kids. We have been blind and this war has gone on too long.They shouldn't have to be soldiers anymore


Invisible Children

I am a huge supporter of Invisible Children, everything they stand for and are doing to save the African kids from the atrocities of Joseph Kony and the LRA. 50 years from now when a generation looks back and asks what we did about this unfortunate events, I don't want to say I was content and let a modern Hitler do what he is doing to these kids.

Please help, check out my fundraising page

April 25, I will be silent for a whole 25 hours. Silence can speak volumes, so hears hoping a vow of silence for a day can lead to giving a voive to the invisible children

ask anything

Ask me to take a picture of any aspect of my life that you're interested in - it can be anything from the house I live in to my favorite shoes. Leave your choice here as a comment, and I will reciprocate by taking the pictures and posting them as an LJ entry. That way you get to know a little bit about my life, if you're remotely interested in it.

this is funny

The Mad Lib Letter Meme
To whom this may concern,

I don't really know how to tell you this, but (1) our affair is over. I think I realized it (2) last year (3) in your closet and I saw you (4)sit on (5)Manchester United's goalkeeper. I'm sure you're (6) man enough to understand (7) how awful I've felt. I'm returning (8) your ring to you, but I'll keep (9) the results of your blood sample as a memory. You should also know that I (10)never openly mocked (11) the Oprah Winfrey imitaions.
(12) Greetings to your freaky family

this is how you do itCollapse )

Holiday Cheer

♥Step One: Make a post to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 GEEKY holiday wishes; the wishes can be anything at all, from simple ("I want a fanfic!") to medium ("I want toys!") to really big. The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or the MaccaBee, or your secret special friend) could get in touch with you. Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will spread.

♥Step Two: Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part: If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not; it's your call! There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just... Wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special...

hi again!

I kno I haven't been on in forever, I am terrible at updates and keeping int ouch. Things have been pretty good. I have been working alot. Haven't been making as much time to run as I'd like but I still am religious about going to the gym and keeping up with working out still, even if I dont run. Pretty much nothing hurts anymore, although if you have ever heard that people with metal hurt when its going to rain or is raining, its true. The screws in the back of my pelvis get kinda achy sometimes with changes in weather. Other than though my body has been doing really well. I've got my flexibility back. Even though I'm not back to my pre-accident weight, I have lost some and am feeling good. My ankle has been acting up a little. It was just getting a little stiff, but now it has a tendency to roll outwards a little in the beginning of runs, or when I've been working all day, then rest, it does the same thing when I go to get moving again. I'm going to go see my physical therapy guys, they'll check me and give me some advice cause they're cool like that. I ran into my cousin about 2 weeks back, her husband was one of my physical therapists. I mentioned to her that my little sister is thinking about going to college for physical therapy, so we were going to bring her up to talk to the guys about good schools and the like. We were bs-ing for a few minutes, then she mentions that the youngest therapist there had moved to the other office if I wanted to say, she knows I pop in on them every so often. (She doesnt kno that I thought he was really cute, but pretty much every girl thinks that). She starts grinning and says, "you know he's single now, too right?" I gave her this like "You really just went there?" but I was really thinking, "Hmmm . . . ." So I've had my hopes up since then :)

Hope everyone out there in LJ land is doing well and will have a great holiday season :)

please help!

I am going to be running a 5k (well, try to run cause I'm still out of shape). I created a page on my new favorite website crowdrise.com to help raise money for the Gesundheit Institute when I run. I have been a huge fan of what Patch Adams has been doing for years and I want to raise money for the free care clinic he's building and to raise awareness about what he does. For those of you who want more information on what he's been up to, check out his site www.patchadams.org to learn about the building updates and his clowning trips (yes, clowning!).

Here's the link to donate, if you feel so inclined after learning about Patch Adams. www.crowdrise.com/gesundheit

Thanks a bunch, I will greatly appreciate any help. Even if you can't spare $$, if you can spread the word, I would love it!
