I think one of the saddest things is when two people really get to know each other: their secrets, their fears, their favourite things, what they love, what they hate, literally everything, and then they go back to being strangers. It’s like you have to walk past them and pretend like you never knew them, never even talked to them before, when really, you know everything about them.
specketer: vicemag: Cry-Baby of the Week The incident: A girl took a razor from a kid who was self-harming. The appropriate response: Congratulate her. The actual response: She was suspended from school. Adrionna Harris is a sixth-grade student at Bayside Middle School in Virginia Beach, VA. While at school last Thursday, Adrionna found one of her friends self-harming with a very small razor blade (like the one pictured above, which I can’t figure out the practical application of). According to her mother, no teachers were around, and Adrionna felt it was “a 911 situation,” so she took the blade from the boy and immediately threw it in the trash. Adrionna then went to school staff and told them what had happened. They responded by giving her a ten-day suspension with recommendation for expulsion. This was as part of the school’s zero-tolerance policy on possessing weapons on school property. Continue Way to go, Virginia. You’re still the worst.
