if you miss someone who does not miss you, or who is no good for you, or is unattainable, take all the love you once felt for them and spread it around other places. put your love in worthwhile people and things, turn the romance in to passions for hobbies or admiration for others- enrich your own life. focus on yourself and those who actively make you happy.
if you’re interested, this person is trying to organize a food/meal drive for elementery school kids in Ferguson.
schools in Ferguson have been closed since Monday and that’s where a LOT of the kids in Ferguson get their food from, to explain how important this is.

Perseid Meteor Shower
Not as great as last year but still worthy of watching. The Full Moon will compete with the shower this year, lowering the peak-rates to around 40 or 60 meteors per hour at best, even in the darkest of skies. The peak time is Aug 10-13 but you can see meteors for about a week before and after, so start watching now! The earlier you watch, the less the moon will be in the way, so watching a few days before the peak might actually be better if not the same. For more stargazing events this month, see What’s Up for August. Also, Semi-Relevant/Informative post from last year

Also if you live in parts of Monroe County in Michigan.
Not sure if I have any followers in the area (if I do, we should totally hang out and do art and eat snacks), but this is really important. People are going as far as Ann Arbor (~45 minutes from Toledo) and even into Indiana (~2 hours from Toledo) to get water. Like yesterday, and probably still today, my town was completely sold out even though our water source wasn’t affected.Also, I will totally let you come to my house and let you fill up containers from the tap. You can reimburse me in sour patch kids and diet coke.
