Hey, I'm Bri, an 18 year old female from the jersey shore. (no, not the show! haha). I do sports and clubs. I try to stay active and participate in school events.
Feel free to ask me anything or share any of your ideas :-)

 

You Are Beautiful: Why must people be so mean to one another?

crying-behind-the-smiles:

Does it really make you feel better to see someone else hurt and broken? If so, that’s sad and you need to take a look at yourself and change that.

Let’s all just embrace the new day that we have and spread love, not hate. There’s already too much of that going around, no need to start our own.

I dare you to be nice to someone today that you normally wouldn’t be. You’ll see that it won’t hurt you, and you’ll probably make that person’s day.

RIP: Whitney Houston, pop superstar known for her hits as much as for her troubles with substance abuse, passed away today at 48.
Details concerning cause of death remain unknown at this time, but Houston is believed to have been found in her Beverly Hilton hotel room by hotel security. Paramedics who arrived at the scene found Houston unresponsive. All effort to resuscitate the singer failed and she was pronounced dead at 3:55 PM local time.
No foul play is suspected at this time; an investigation has been launched. BBC Correspondent Alastair Leithead reports that she may have been under the influence “of substances” at the time of her death.
Houston leaves behind a musical legacy that spans multiple decades. She was the recipient of 415 awards throughout her storied career — the most of ever by a female singer — including two Emmy Awards, six Grammy Awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards, and 22 American Music Awards.
She also leaves behind a daughter, Bobbi Kristina Houston Brown, whom she had with then-husband Bobby Brown.

Peace Corps Volunteers John Hart and Caroline Lucas helped launch a women-owned small business in Armenia selling and producing handmade stuffed bears. Since the Berd Bear project started in March 2011, the women have sold 230 bears, and generated thousands of dollars.

“The women of Berd are incredibly talented and hardworking. They put a lot of pride into their craft, which is evident in each carefully and lovingly handmade bear,” said Lucas. “As sales of the Berd Bear increase, more local Armenian women are able to work in full-time positions with the BWRCF.”

Additional income generated by sales of the Berd Bear is used to provide members of the foundation with training classes in basic computer skills, business development and other topics.

“Aside from the financial benefits generated by bear sales, the women are also gaining business and leadership skills,” continued Lucas. “Now, these women can help support their families.”

“Using gay to mean dumb or stupid is not cool. It’s not creative, offensive to gay people, and you’re better than that.”

Ok so when you’ve been in the caribbean for two weeks, coming back to America feels like a punishment :/ lmao

hey a little while back you asked for ideas for your environmental club. i was the one who told you about the beach sweep and the high clean up. did you guys end up doing it? :)

Thank you for your help! :) Yes, we did put it in our agenda to do the beach sweep sometime in june. Me and the president of the club were trying to get a date on that. but that’s a whiles away, so we’ll think more about it a little later haha. As for the high way clean up…Haha I don’t know. I think it’d be a little too dangerous. there are too many accidents that happen on our major highways, I wouldn’t want to risk anyone getting hurt.

But thank you for your ideas! Have a great day :)
