Anatomy of Songs [wronghands]
Anatomy of Songs [wronghands]
Google created this cool gif from my photos of the Bombay Bicycle Club concert at the El Rey a few months ago without me having asked it to.
While Sierra Leone has long been at peace, many still suffer the mental effects of its 11-year civil war. The World Health Organization estimates there are 715,000 people with mental disorders.
Yoga Strength was founded by Tamba Fayia, once a child soldier in Sierra Leone’s civil war, who in 2012 became the country’s first qualified yoga teacher. He says yoga transformed his life.
The organisation focuses on taking yoga to the people that need it. “I work on the streets, in the slums, in the schools” says Mr Fayia. He has even held a class on a remote river island in the jungle.
I am currently DIYing my own personal planner pages to suit my needs exactly. Hardly anyone has any idea what this project means to a person with ADHD. Hopefully, I can finally organize my life and achieve my goals if my methods are unconventional and supremely customized to me.
Guess who has a coffee date with a cute, young civil rights lawyer? This girl. It’s a shame it can’t go anywhere because I won’t be starting any new dating relationships throughout this whole World Race process, but I don’t see a rule that states I can’t be fawned over for an hour. The only men who ever come up to me are old vagrants and sleazy, old business men, so this is a really nice change.
You know that moment when a married man with children that you looked up to and respected hits on you?
Ugh. F**k the patriarchy.
You’re gonna have to forgive me. BBC period dramas are pretty much my favorite things on Netflix.
I was growing a bit discouraged because I hadn’t seemed to be able to get a handle on balancing a full time job with fundraising duties. It means a lot that you believe in me, especially because I was having a hard time believing in myself. I have renewed my efforts, and it’s my friends, family, and brothers and sisters in Christ like you that help keep me going. I really do thank God for you all.
I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed, so I may not be able to figure out who you are. If I don’t figure it out before I get back from the trip or even before I embark, I’d love to know who you are so I can at least send a thank you card and keep you updated!
God bless you, as well!
"As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God. "- Psalm 42:1 I’m grateful for the unexpected stop at Fuller Seminary’s prayer garden tonight.

Christian Palestinian mothers from Aabud village in Ramallah disctric, who suffered from injustice and oppression when Israeli occupation forces took their land and arrested their struggling children.
Um, yes. Yes, quite a hefty donation of $515.
I posted a thank you on facebook, but, apparently, that was the wrong social media platform.
I feel like I’m in Great Expectations or something. Will I ever get to know the identify of my benefactor/benefactress?
I don’t know how to thank you. Thank you so much!
