Hello Everyone!
I’m Mena White and I’m in need of a bit of help from y’all right now. Basically the situation is that I had to leave my dad’s abusive home for my safety and mental wellbeing. I did not really want to talk about it online very much because its this whole dramatic thing and nothing I want to stress my dear followers over but now I’ve run into a little issue. Although I have a place to stay, I need to be able to pay them in order to continue to stay here and I also need to be saving in order to go back to school. I have a job right now but with the low wage and low hours, its not enough to cover the cost of staying here or saving. I need another job but its impossible to find one because I don’t have the best transportation. I need a car.
WHAT I NEED
In order to get a car that is reliable I am asking y’all to help me out. I made a indiegogo account which can be reached here and anything you contribute helps me a ton! 
WHAT YOU WANT
I racked my brain and came up with these services and products I can give you in return for helping me so much:
$10 your very own handwritten note by me!
$25 A goodie bag filled with homemade lollipops and a handwritten letter by me!
$30 A specially made mixed CD with twenty songs I think you’ll like, plus a handwritten letter
$35 Any paper/essay/story/poem of your choosing proofread by me!
I realize everyone can’t contribute but positive thoughts sent my way and signal boosting would help me so much! Thank you!!! Thank you!! Thank you!!!!
In case you didn’t see it before here is the link again!

Hello everyone! I have another little update for you! I’ve received $238 in donations and thats so amazing! That’s 5% of my goal and further than I could’ve come without all of your wonderful help. Although I am working, I am experiencing racially based wage discrimination and I don’t know when I will begin receiving the full amount promised to me. This creates another issue because it’s more difficult to save money now. Anything you can do (whether that is donating, reblogging, or sharing on other social media) is deeply appreciated. Thank you for everything you’ve done thus far. I love you!!

“A three second exposure meant that subjects had to stand very still to avoid being blurred, and holding a smile for that period was tricky. As a result, we have a tendency to see our Victorian ancestors as even more formal and stern than they might have been.”

I’ve reblogged this before and I will reblog it again.

This is so great

Two ways of dealing with tear gas grenades from comrades in Turkey: Either submerge them in water. Make sure you can close off the container cause the gas will still spread for a while. Or throw them in the fire so the gas burns off before it can spread.
