So my mother has been missing since Thursday. When I say missing, I mean that I have not heard from her since Wed. January 8th, 2014. She said that she was going to visit a friend in Charleston for the weekend, but I never heard back from her about flights or about who the woman was or anything.
My brother and I were able to go through my mother’s emails and accounts to find out where she could have possibly gone, but where ever she went, we know it was not where she said she was going.
I was out of state until yesterday, and the only communication I had with my immediate family was through the phone and FaceTime with my brother.
According the the hand written note that my mother left her flight home was to land 6am this morning (Jan 14th, 2014) I don’t know why I waited so long to post this…Also found in her email there was an email she sent to herself with flight information. There was no official email confirming a ticket purchase. So where ever she went, my brother and I know that she did not pay for herself.
Her camera and a few pairs of shoes are missing from the house as well, I know what suitcase she used, but I didn’t know where she kept it, so I cannot confirm that she even has one with her.
I found the woman who she was supposed to visit on Facebook, in her messages. Do I message this woman saying that I have not heard from my mother in 5 days and ask if she went to visit her? I really need help, I don’t know what to do. I’m really worried, and my brother is really upset about her disappearing.
The picture is of my mother at my graduation in June 2013, her features have not changed. Please help. Please.
So I still have not heard from my mother, it has been a week. If there is anyway that you can try to get this out. My brother and I would really appreciate it if you could help us out. Tonight we posted something on facebook about her being missing. It got a huge response from people on her page as well as mine.
Please, please help.
where my soul belongs
its not too late to be saved, my child
Burgatory is seriously the best place. Their food is so delicious. Pittsburgh is awesome.
It’s a book mark that marks your spot in the book.
I don’t think I could ever stop in the middle of a page like this.
I’m actually really bad at remembering and pulling voices. It was totally my voice pretending to be an old man but sound slightly less bad than if I did it out loud. I have the same problem with images and guessing what characters would look like or remembering what people look like.
The cure to cancer could be in the mind of someone with gauges and tattoos but no one would fucking know because god forbid a doctor has tattoos and gauges
The cure to cancer would be found by a researcher, some of which are Drs but not most of them. Plenty of those have gauges and tattoos. Do people really think Drs just come up with things like that?
so early september i got a pixie nespresso machine and was super excited. It’s not even mid october and the machine has been acting up for the last 2 weeks. It’s not dripping the coffee correctly/water gets stuck/drip is not complete.
so now I’m just like a dumb airhead trying to figure out…
the struggle is so real
But wouldn’t a pug having hiccups be adorable and hilarious and not even a problem?
More Macklemore, less Robin Thicke.
And yet a huge percentage of Tumblr hates him. Not trying to be confrontational, but could someone please explain to me why this is?
Because he is a straight white guy and Tumblr isn’t always right.
Yup. A lot of people like to ignore all the good things he does simply because he is part of the privileged. Never mind that he flat out acknowledges this in Same Love. (“I may not be the same, but that’s not important.”)
BLESS YOUR SOULS.
BLESS YOUR FUCKING SOULS.
I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT STAND THAT FUCKING A LOT OF TUMBLR HATES MACKLEMORE.
BECAUSE HONESTLY, HE WAS EVERYTHING THEY WERE COMPLAINING WHITE PEOPLE AREN’T AND NOW THAT THEY GOT A FUCKING ROLEMODEL THEY SUDDENLY COMPLAIN?????? BECAUSE HE’S WHITE?????
Macklemore grew up privileged, yes, but he understands the inequality and the disturbing gap between rich and poor. He has a song called White Privilege:
"Hiphop started off in a block that I’ve never been to
To counter act a struggle that I’ve never even been through
If I think I understand just because I flow too
That means I’m not keeping it true, nope.”
"But as I’m blessed with the privilege, they’re still left with the scars"
AND HAVE YOU HEARD HIS SONG CLAIMING THE CITY???
"I grew up on Capitol Hill,
With two parents and two cars.
They had a beautiful marriage, we even had a swing set in our yard.
My mom didn’t have a job, because my dad made enough money that we could live comfortably and he could support us.
Now, he commute to Tacoma, so we knew we be good.
But then I realized everybody looked just like me in my neighborhood.
I go to school, which was diverse.
But indeed us, I got sandwiches and Capri Suns well my friends ate their free lunch.
It’s crazy trying to look back, cause when I was growing up
I didn’t understand the fact was there’s something called a social status.
And my black friends wanted my financial bracket.
And then my city’s divided,
From neighborhood to neighborhood
We’re polarized but we claim we’re progressive.
The police shoot in the hood but never once in my residence.
As a white person been shot at we’d stopped in a Lexus.
And to think that we have claimed that so much has changed”
OH GOODNESS ME, HE’S SUCH AN ASSHOLE. HE’S SO PRIVILEGED GOD.
HOW ABOUT A WAKE???
"Don’t wanna be that white dude, million man marchin’
Fighting for our freedom that my people stole
Don’t wanna make all my white fans uncomfortable
But you don’t even have a fuckin’ song for radio
Why you out here talkin race, tryin’ to save the fuckin’ globe
Don’t get involved with the causes in mind
White privilege, white guilt, at the same damn time
So we just party like it’s nineteen ninety nine
Celebrate the ignorance while these kids keep dying.”
Tumblr needs to hop down off it’s high fucking horse and instead of turning against a potential role model and ally to all that they’ve been fucking preaching about JUST BECAUSE HE’S PRIVILEGED AND WHITE, maybe make him an icon because he’s not rapping about disrespecting women. He’s making a small change. But because he grew up with a well structured family environment and he was able to afford everything he desired, he’s suddenly the enemy.
Read the pictures in reverse from bottom to top and then you’ll see the other side of the argument.
Not really, because I can still raise the point that it’s bullshit to hate on him for wanting to raise awareness of issues that don’t necessarily plague him. We can’t hate the privileged when they actually WANT to help people and raise awareness. Maybe if more white people openly cared about racism or more straight people cared about queer issues or more men cared about women’s rights these problems would be a lot easier to solve. So no, Macklemore’s a good guy. You don’t have to like his music, he can be corny sometimes, but he’s a solid dude who just wants his music to MEAN SOMETHING. ESPECIALLY in rap we need to encourage that.
PLEASE DON’T TAKE OFFENSE AT MY COMMENT I REALLY LIKE MACKLEMORE I’M JUST TRYING TO EXPRESS AN ALTERNATE VIEW POINT AND EXPAND THE DISCUSSION THAT DOESN’T HAPPEN IF YOU SHUT ME DOWN OKAY? OKAY.
Hi. So I’m responding to motherfickles comment about how Macklemore is a rollmodel and what magrinalized groups (I’m guessing she meant POC but idk) had been complaining white weren’t.
The thing is, black people (I’m saying black people because I am a black female but this probably applies for POC in general) don’t want a roll model that’s everything we’ve been complaining white people aren’t. What most black people want is to be able to have some of the privilege that white people have. We don’t want a roll model, we want to be able to improve as a people and get to a point where white privilege isn’t a thing, because everyone is treated equally regardless of race. What it seems like to me is that motherfickle was peddling Macklemore to be the stereotypical white man that comes and rescues and saves the poor POC, which, my dear friend, is an example of white privilege (or more like white people being ashamed of their privilege and reaching out a momentary hand to POC). What I’m saying is, would your argument be the same if Macklemore was black or latino or Indian? Probably not. (I sincerely hope it would be, though).
I love Macklemore’s music because, like the person above me pointed out, his music means something. And I think it’s great that he’s bringing attention to problems that marginalized groups face, and just because he could be seen as a “roll model” that doesn’t mean POC want him to be.
That’s my two cents, please don’t go giant squid of anger on me.
I only barely know who this is so ignoring all of this serious talk and just saying oxycotton?? Really?
hot topic has some cool stuff but its embarrassing just walking in that store tbh
thank you so much for putting this into words
Walk into hot topic like yo wuddup im not a scene kid
My boyfriend still buys cds so everytime we’re at a mall (incredibly rare now since none are actually really close to us) we go in and it makes me feel really old to be in there.
