For most of my teenage years and into my current years I have been facinated with Japan and its culture. From the nature to the food I love it all. During my first semester of college at Genesee Community College in Batavia, NY I met some exchange students from Japan who are some of my closest friends to this day. Now they are all back in Japan and of course it gives me even a greater reason to go to Japan. I hope to make it to Japan sometime next August, or late fall time. I believe I will be able to get a good amount saved up with some hard work in the year and a few weeks ish to come but because I am a full time college student and also working a part time job I can only save up so little at a time. Any contributions would be greatly appreciated and you can be sure you will get a personal thank you from me!
If any of my followers could relay this message/reblog and what not I would also greatly appreciate it! ^_^ That would be a big help in itself.

Cops said he was fighting with another boy, a 13-year-old neighbor in the area.
So what do you do when two boys are fighting?
Well, if you’re the NYPD, and the boys in question are black, you throw one of them through a window, puncturing his lung. As he lies there with blood filling his lungs, you handcuff him and refuse to call an ambulance. When you do call an ambulance, you enter the protocol for an adult drunk, instead of a dying child. When the ambulance comes, you refuse to let the paramedics uncuff him. Even as the paramedics explain that this boy is dying, you argue that he’s faking it and that he deserves to die there on the street for fighting with another boy. When you finally do let the paramedics uncuff him and take him to the hospital, you fail to report that you threw him through a glass window despite dozens of eye-witnesses reporting the opposite. When you are called upon by the community to account for your actions, you decide to do an “internal investigation” - therefore being accountable to no one outside your division. You encourage the deregulation of police conduct and refuse to let outsiders investigate how you train your officers.
And what do you do, if you’re a concerned citizen who is tired of seeing this? You write Bill de Blasio and you ask him to start an outside investigation into police brutality. Or at least that’s what I did. And if you want to cosign what I wrote him, you can do that here. And if you want to signal boost that for Javier Payne, you can do that too. You can sign my petition letter here.
Because this is what happens about this sort of thing, and a great reason of heartbreak for me.
I remember when everyone changed their twitter icons to the color green because of the Green Revolution in Iran. Which didn’t succeed. And then people went from being all uppity about human rights and stuff in Iran to doing their thing.
And then there’s #prayforVenezuela, and #prayforukraine and #prayfor[Country/Issue/PersonGoingtoJailCuzTheyreNotWhite] generally the world has like a 2-3 week span of attention about these things.
Also I’ll take the chance to glare at the PrayFor gimmick. I’m left to wonder who started that trend, because it’s a trend that makes people believe good wishes are sufficient, in the same way that, here, in Venezuela, people are quick to believe it’s better to pray the problems away instead of actively working to solve them. Prayer is good when it goes in hand with action, but I know that, psychologically, it’s also a method to avoid taking action. It’s delegating responsibility to a deity of choice.
Anyway point is, I hope those girls in Nigeria are saved and that the Nigerian government takes action to increase security for women seeking education.
