#Rhinohorns

This is but far the most horrible thing I have ever seen. I am currently watching “Vice” on HBO. And I am so disgusted that people are killing these rhinos.  They saw/cut off their horns and leave them to suffer. It is one of the saddest things I have seen in a long time. These people don’t deserve life. They are the scum of the earth. I wish I knew how to help these innocent creatures.

#changes

It’s definitely time to change and get things together for me and my boo. I need things to work out for us. It’s time for me to step up as much as I can. I need to stop putting things on hold and get them done.

when the tables turn

There is not much that disgusts me more than when the tables turn and all the sudden someone needs us. (Us meaning me and my boyfriend)  (And the someone is my boyfriends brother and his girlfriend) when we needed rides an just someone to be there for us they were so put out! An ususually busy, but now they don’t have cars considering they were both crashed. They need our help. And they really try to make us feel bad about not taking them but they didn’t even think twice when they said no to us. Or made us wait in the freezing cold for them. And not let us stay when we had no where to go. These kind of things really get to me.

In my TED Talk, I acknowledged for the first time that, in 2003, I tried to end my life. I wanted to share this in a public setting because 19 out of 20 people who attempt suicide will fail — and those that make the difficult decision to come back to life need openness from their loved ones and a lot of resources. Perhaps that’s what you are in need of right now.

[ted_talkteaser id=1167]My journey cannot be your journey. And while there are probably great gaps in our specific experiences, there is likely some overlap too. In the process of thinking about my experience, a few themes have emerged which I think have a more universal application. If you have others, by all means add them to the list; if some of these do not work for you, then simply attempt the ones which do.

Time to ring the bell: this year, Sounding Out! is opening a brand-new stream of content to run on Thursdays. Every few weeks, we’ll be bringing in a new Guest Editor to curate a series of posts on a particular theme that opens up new ground in areas of thought and practice where sound meets media. Most of our writers and editors will be new to the site, and many will be joining us from the ranks of the Sound Studies and Radio Studies Scholarly Interest Groups at the Society for Cinema and Media Studies, as well as from the Sound Studies Caucus
