I have a huge fascination with cool lights and lanterns.. Anyone else..???
i understand that school is important and education is important but i feel like there’s a huge difference between a healthy amount of challenge in order to do better and being so stressed about school that you break down and cry

I’m 827% positive that the reason Anderson doesn’t think Sherlock is dead is because Sherlock purposefully let Anderson see tiny glimpses of him the past several years, just to screw with his head. Appearing through Anderson’s window in the woods, standing across the street of his favorite coffee shop, leaving small traces of his presence in his office.
Because Sherlock’s a little shit like that.
I’m sorry for the gaudy image, darlings, but it was the only thing I could think of that could make you stop and consider reading this. This is the last thing I wanted to have to do, but we’ve been backed into a corner. Please read this, and even if you can’t help, please pass it along.
My family and I live in a gorgeous house that we don’t want to leave, but the bills are outrageous. Right now, we’re receiving two SSI checks totalling $1400. Our rent here is $950, leaving us with $450. The water bill is about $150 because so many people live here. That leaves us with $300 to pay the phone ($43), internet ($45), and electricity. Which would be fine, if our electric bill were in any way average.
In my city, in the peak of summer, people complain that their light bills hit an outrageous $200. This was last month’s bill for us.
We don’t have a pool, so there’s nothing in here to have us paying that much. We don’t have anything except an AC unit from 1995, a water heater from 1994, and a wiring job so shoddy that we had a tech come out to install internet and he got electrocuted in the attic. We try to pay whatever we can on it, but obviously, you can see that it would be impossible not to fall behind.
We’ve spoken to the owner about it, and the most he was willing to offer was looking into installing wall AC units to help us with the electric bill, and we’ve heard nothing substantial about even that when we make inquiries. That wouldn’t even come close to the complete overhaul that this house needs.
Last month, our light was cut. We’re used to that happening in this house; it’s happened at least five or six times now. The problem is that for a week, we had nothing. All our food went bad. We have no car, and no way to get food except by bicycle, and there’s only so much you can carry on your back on a bicycle and only so much you can get with food stamps.
In that week, all of us got sick because of the oppressive humidity and the chill that was coming in from the cold front, because we had to sleep with our windows open or suffocate. Long story short, we used all of our rent money to get the light back on, and we’ve decided that enough is enough.
Please, tumblr, help us get out of here. Every single time we gather enough money to think about leaving, the light gets cut, and it starts all over again. Please help me get out of this place, and get my little niece, Jadelynn, somewhere stable to live for the New Year.
It takes a lot of money to move to somewhere else—first, last, deposit, background check, etc—and I know that I’m asking for a lot, but please, please know that we’re doing our best to save up what we can on our end, too. So please.
Send anything you can to email@example.com on PayPal. You don’t need a PayPal account to help. Just a credit/debit card (or maybe a bank account if you don’t have one). Even if it’s just $1. Please. Thank you.
