**Please take the time to read my case, it would me a lot to me.**

Hello! My name is Amber, or Rue, as some of you may know me by. I am a 22 year old girl living on my own in Connecticut.

I moved to Connecticut from California 4 years ago to escape a very bad situation with my family. I haven’t spoken to them much since and we are not on good terms. I cannot return home, nor would I ever want to.
Since I have been on my own I have lived in homeless shelters, friend’s homes and I have rented rooms from various shady people. Now, I live with a compulsive hoarder in a small room mostly filled with her stuff. I have been living here since March of 2013. I work 40+ hours a week as an assistant manager at a Dunkin’ Donuts and also attend school two days a week (7 hours both days). I am currently looking for a second job. I pay monthly health and dental insurance, my phone bill, rent, medical bills, etc. I also pay for transportation when I cannot walk to work since I do not have a car. I try my hardest to walk to work when I can because I cannot afford to spend money on cabs, but sometimes it is too cold at 5am in the winter to walk or the sidewalks are piled with snow. I am desperately trying to conserve money whenever I can and I have started a savings account to keep money aside.
The woman I live with doesn’t have A/C in the summer nor does she have heat in the winter. I live in Connecticut where it snows and gets to be VERY cold, especially during the night. I have a low tolerance to the cold and it effects my heart negatively. She also does not have a working fridge, stove or toilet. I am unable to keep food in the house because I cannot refrigerate or cook it so I end up eating a lot of my meals at my friend’s house when I am invited. If I eat at home it is usually just chips or cookies.

The woman who owns the house also has three cats. The cats do not use the litter box, likely because it goes uncleaned for weeks. As a result the pets urinate throughout the house, including in the bathtub and on my clothing in my room. I am constantly bleaching the tub before I shower and washing my clothes over and over again. I have asked the owner to please keep my door shut to prevent this but I have come home many times to find my door wide open and cats in my room.
The cats also kill many small rodents such as mice, rats and squirrels which they have dragged in from outside or have actually found and killed in the house. When I have brought this to the attention of the home owner she was not at all interested and told me not to bother cleaning it up because the cats like to “play” with the dead animals. These are just a few of the examples highlighting the gross environment I live in.

I can no longer tolerate it mentally and physically. I have been diagnosed with severe Clinical Depression and PTSD; my psychiatrist said moving out of this house would most definitely help improve my depression (obviously not cure it, but make it a little bit more tolerable). I also have a lot of health issues, one being a problem with my heart which is made worse by the mold, dust and cat dander in the house as I am allergic to them. I have included pictures of the house that I took recently. This is actually the cleanest it has been in a while considering she had people over so she had straigtened it up a bit.

Unfortunately, there is absolutely no where else for me to go. I am desperately trying to move before winter hits, but between all my bills I cannot save enough to pay for the required safety deposit and first months rent. I have gone and visited many apartments, and it always comes down to me not being able to get enough money together. I know I can pay the monthly rent, it’s just a matter of saving up enough for the first month and deposit before winter.

I am asking for donations to help me reach my goal and escape this horrible living situation before I am stuck here for the winter. Any amount of donated money is greatly appreciated and all the money is going directly to my savings account where I am already started to put aside whatever I can as well.

Thank you so much for reading.
I will gladly provide any proof needed and answer questions.

I have a gofundme account set up here: http://www.gofundme.com/fpyqog

Even a signal boost or anything would be greatly appreciated, thank you so much again!

Already I would like to thank everyone for the support, donations and reblogs/asks I am getting! I can’t tell you how much it means to me! Thank you so much!

No one shouold live in such a mess. Have you brought this up to a health inspector perhaps? If she has a lease with you you can bring it up to them that the landlady isn’t providing a healthy living environment. I do hope you can get all the funds you need D:

wallahibro:

I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

You can also read a more detailed explanation of what’s going down here and watch a live feed here.

This actually gots a point

There is a difference between occasional eye candy and being nothing but eyecandy though. Comparing tv shows (since I&#8217;m assuming this is where most of the images are from) the guys are just a few second teasers and don&#8217;t always happen. Where as for the ladies there are how many model and beauty pageant based shows on tv? But that&#8217;s just going on a thread based on the images assumed sources rather than whats presented. OP does still have a point technically.

The women of Tennessee are having their reproductive rights stolen from them. 
Right now in Tennessee, there is a constitutional amendment that is going to be on that ballot in November that will give politicians the unlimited authority to restrict or ban abortion, even in cases of rape or incest or if the life of the mother is endangered. Its called Amendment 1 and it simply goes to far into our private health decisions. Even if you’re against abortion personally, you can see that. Not only that, but similar amendments have passed in all of our border states so, if this passes, women in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Virginia, Kentucky, Arkansas, Missouri and North Carolina all loose access to safe abortions. And “safe abortion” really is the key word here because this amendment is not going to end abortion. Its going to end safe and legal abortions. Women will still need them and still seek them but will simply be unable to get them in safe and sanitary environments. 
Also, on October 1st, the Hamilton county (the county that the city of Chattanooga falls under) commission is considering a resolution to support Amendment 1. This would mean that the city of Chattanooga itself would endorse the amendment. The city has no right to try to sway voters one or another in a personal issue like this, and we need to let them know that. If you live in or around the Chattanooga area, please join us at the next county commission meeting on Wednesday, October 1st on the fourth floor of the Hamilton County house at 625 Georgia Ave. The meeting begins properly at 9:30 so we urge you to get there no later then 9:00. If you wish to attend, please contact me and I’ll be sure to get you Vote No On One shirts, buttons and stickers. If you can’t attend, please reblog this spread the word! 
The women of Tennessee need you to Vote No On One!  

The Duggars (famous reality tv family with 19 children) were in Nashville recently and voiced their support for Amendment 1 because it stops a “baby holocaust”. 

Also, please support this Facebook page which is the official organization in Tennessee combatting this bill.

Signal boost!

Teens create new app to hold police accountable
By Maya | Published: August 18, 2014 | Feministing.com
As Ferguson continues to reel after Michael Brown’s death and the police threaten to shoot journalists and tear gas children, three badass teenage coders from Georgia have developed a timely mobile app to hold police accountable.
Five-O, created by siblings Ima, Asha, and Caleb Christian, allows users to detail their encounters with police officers and rate them on their professionalism. Anyone can check how their community stacks up and the information will be sent to law enforcement. “We’d like to know which regions in the US provide horrible law enforcement services as well as highlight the agencies that are highly rated by their citizens, explained senior Ima.” In addition to putting more power into the hands of citizens when interacting with law enforcement, we believe that highly rated police departments should be used as models for those that fail at providing quality law enforcement services.”

EUROPEANS TAUGHT FOR CENTURIES that Africa had no written history, literature or philosophy (claiming Egypt was other than African). When roughly 1 MILLION manuscripts were found in Timbuktu/Mali covering , according to Reuters “all the fields of human knowledge: law, the sciences, medicine,” IT DID NOT MAKE MAINSTREAM NEWS as did the lies taught by Europeans concerning Africa


Someone asked me to somehow “verify” that this story is real.
Of course it’s real! The PROBLEM with the coverage regarding these manuscripts is that they’re constantly portrayed as being in “danger” because many of them are still in the possession of Malian descendants. About 700,000 have been cataloged so far, and they have had to be moved in part because apparently extremist groups have tried to firebomb them. Many others are still in the possession of the families they have been passed down in.
Some of these collected manuscripts are being housed in exile, but mold and humidity have been a constant threat. They have been raising funds to try and preserve these manuscripts-you can read more about the project to house and protect them here.
A bit of the history of these manuscripts from National Geographic:


These sacred manuscripts covered an array of subjects: astronomy, medicine, mathematics, chemistry, judicial law, government, and Islamic conflict resolution. Islamic study during this period of human history, when the intellectual evolution had stalled in the rest of Europe was growing, evolving, and breaking new ground in the fields of science, mathematics, astronomy, law, and philosophy within the Muslim world.
By the 1300s the “Ambassadors of Peace” centered around the University of Timbuktu created roving scholastic campuses and religious schools of learning that traveled between the cities of Timbuktu, Gao, and Djénné, helping to serve as a model of peaceful governance throughout an often conflict-riddled tribal region.
 At its peak, over 25,000 students attended the University of Timbuktu. 
By the beginning of the 1600s with the Moroccan invasions from the north, however, the scholars of Timbuktu began to slowly drift away and study elsewhere. As a result, the city’s sacred manuscripts began to fall into disrepair. While Islamic teachings there continued for another 300 years, the biggest decline in scholastic study occurred with the French colonization of present-day Mali in the late 1890s. 


So yeah, basically the story of this collection’s source more or less ends with “…but unfortunately, colonialism”, as do most of the great cities of Africa, the Americas, and some parts of Asia.
Also, as an additional consideration:


With the pressures of poverty, a series of droughts, and a tribal Tureg rebellion in Mali that lasted over ten years, the manuscripts continue to disappear into the black market, where they are illegally sold to private and university collections in Europe and the United States. 


Notice where the blame is placed here via language use: on the people in poverty forced to sell their treasures, as opposed to the Universities in Europe and the U.S. buying them.
It’s really just another face of Neocolonialism.
