It is a lonely feeling when someone you care about becomes a stranger.
I’ve been doing a lot of research into the ice bucket challenge because I’ve looked at it as people doing the ice challenge to avoid donating. Even if you do the challenge you’re suppose to donate. This cause has spread a lot of awareness and has raised millions of dollars which is amazing. But. The CEO’s are still getting a bigger cut then the actual association. Ive read articles stating this and also saying it’s a hoax. I truly don’t know and that is why I’ve stayed away from it all together. I think everyone should donate to important causes and if I had the money to I would write as many checks as my bank account would allow but unfortunately I barely have money to drive myself down the street. I love that this has spread awareness but it makes me think of other organizations that don’t have the same viral flare that this one does. I sat on my computer today for a long time and I read into a lot of different organizations and tried to get as educated as humanly possible about where the money is actually going. I wish there was a way to spread more awareness about other organizations as well.
the point of pouring a shit ton of ice water over yourself is because when one suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) one of the affects the disease has is a numbness throughout the body, as well as struggling to breathe, and both these are meant to temporarily happen when doused in freezing water. It’s to raise awareness of what ALS feels like and encourage donations towards research and cures.
Slowly losing my mind solely because I’m have a month to find somewhere to live because I waited too long to get back to the guy and someone else snagged it. I also feel like the girl I’m moving in with doesn’t realize the extent of it because if we don’t find a place she will still have somewhere to live where I truly will not.
