Anonymous asked: (cont)...underclassman year. aside from just not having the best teacher ever next year this kind of jeopardizes my plans for college apps. being a highschool graduate, can you put things in perspective? am I just being too whiney, or should I ask my counselor if there's something they can do? and if there's nothing I can do, how do I get over being frustrated/disappointed?
I dont think you are being overly whiney - I would be frustrated as well!
But to put things in perspective for you, it’s not the end of the world, and it certainly wont have an impact on your future college plans!
I think it’s perfectly okay to ask this teacher for a letter of rec - the worst he can say is “no” (which I have never heard of a teacher doing, btw. lol) (ps, make sure you give them at least 2 weeks to write it and be sure to give them all the information they need - who the letter is for, what it should include, etc. it just makes their life easier!) :)
Also, even though you wont have this teacher for class, you could always stop by their room before or after school just to chat or catch up or ask them questions (personally, I would do this a few times before asking for the letter of rec)
Just take a deep breath and relax…enjoy your Junior year and just have faith that everything will fall into place :)
I hope this helps. I’m here if you need anything else!
Anonymous asked: I'm crushed because we just signed up for our classes next year, I am a sophomore in highschool, going to be a junior, and I didn't get my favorite teacher who I took this year. I really wanted to take him again more than anything, it was the only preference I had for my schedule and I couldn't get him(we get some say in what our sched is). I was also planning on asking him for a college rec, but just one year I feel like isn't really a basis to ask for one, especially because it was an...

Thank you <3
I’m getting better at realizing when I need to take a step back and work on myself first :)
For the past four and a half months, I have had my address out on the internet as an invitation for anyone to send me their blades so they can take a step forward towards getting better.
In those four and a half months, I have received these:
- 71 blades
- 4 bobby pins
- 3 paper clips
- 2 safety pins
- 1 needle
- 1 letter opener
- 1 lighter
I can’t really say much in response to this, because honestly I don’t think there are words to describe how proud and how humbled I am.
These people are fighters, and the day they sent those away, it was another step towards winning the war.
Bless you all…Thank you for trusting me <3

PAPER CHAIN PROJECT
- For every day you go without self harming or purging, add a colourful link to the paper chain
- If you relapse, just add a white link to to the chain and carry on the chain without any disruption
- Over time the paper chain will grow in length and you can see your progress, and see that even if you do relapse, the are still days you go without hurting yourself. The colourful links.
- Over time and through your recovery watch the amount of coloured links begin to increase, and the amount of white links begin to decrease.
- If you feel like hurting yourself, look at the paper chain and realise just how far you’ve made it, and realise that if you’ve resisted before you can do it again :)
- Please reblog, this could help someone towards recovery. ❤
