Is it already 2012 where you live right now?
AND I LOVE IT! I’m too tired to get dressed up and I’m not a fan of parties. In fact, I’d be scared because people go insane drinking and I’d be scared to be out driving. I remember when some man thought I was drinking alcohol when I he saw my bottle of Pony Malta. Where is Marcela? I have to tell her that my grandmother just bought me the drink I’ve been craving for ages! I’m so jealous! She has a fridge filled with it!
Don’t drink and drive-and don’t ride with anybody who does. Tipsy Tow offered by AAA: you don’t have to be a AAA member, from 6pm-6am on New Years Eve/day, they will take your drunk self and your car home for FREE. Save this number… 1-800-222-4357. Please reblog this if you don’t mind.
awesome! I put in my queue so I can post it when more people are online.
“whats the common physical sign, between the kennedy siblings? a body characteristic visible among brothers and sisters (not the eyes, not the hair, not the nose, not even the kennedy smile which could be accepted as a trademark… did u find it?)”

Current asked me to do a series of 5 stories I thought went underreported this year.
This time of year, media outlets publish their year-in-review articles and lists, looking back on recent history and reflecting on the major events that shaped the past 365 days. In fact, the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism conducted a study of the year’s top stories and the frequency of each reported story.
However, for a variety of reasons, there are always some stories that slip through the cracks and don’t get as much attention. This is our list, in no particular order, of five stories that went underreported in 2011.
The first one is about child homelessness. Though this story has been picked up by many news outlets, it’s a story that should be played, posted, read every day until the rate of child homelessness goes down. Way down.
The number of homeless children in the United States is at its highest levels in the nation’s history, according to a study released last week from the National Center on Family Homelessness. 1 out of every 45 children is homeless. That’s a staggering number; a majority of them are under 7.

Reuters did a great story about this topic in the last couple days, but I wasn’t able to include it as I already filed my piece before it came out. Here’s a link to the Reuters story.
Super-important piece by Josh. Read the whole thing. It’s heartbreaking. And important. What, as a culture, can we do to reverse this trend?
I’ll post more photosets tomorrow. I just don’t like how one of them came out and I need to spend more time on them. That gif above reminds me of what Jackie said about how his towel would fall off and he’d just put it back on. He seemed like so much fun.
