uuuuuUUUUUUGGGGGHHHHHHH

it turns out I probably DO have to take this English evaluation course

and I need to register for it

but I have NO IDEA how

and I was an idiot and didn’t call the school yesterday when I was supposed to (which is why I found out about this whole thing via email, which I also should have checked like five days ago) so now I can’t do anything about it until Monday

and I was on the phone with my mom about it and she was like “Remember how nervous you were about going into high school? This is a much bigger step so it makes sense for you to be nervous”

and now I can’t stop thinking about all the anxiety dreams I had before going into high school

and how I’ve been terrible about checking my school email for updates because I just don’t want to deal with it and the school email and website are ridiculously outdated and difficult to use and everything is confusing and scary and I DO NOT LIKE but then when I procrastinate checking my email I get into even deeper shit like this

Listening to exactly this type of party happening next door is not helping

I want to go to a party where I don’t know anyone and get drunk and not think about anything???

photos by gerry ellis from the david sheldrick wildlife trust, a nursery and orphanage for elephants in kenya’s tsavo east national park. here, fifty five keepers are charged with being around the clock parents to an elephant. the elephants, however, are the ones who chose their caretakers; it is the keepers who must ingratiate themselves to the elephants and earn their trust.

when elephants first arrive at the orphanage they are often traumatized from having witnessed the slaughter of their mothers and family by poachers. grieving can last several months, and they often lose the will to live. but as dame daphne sheldrick, founder of the orphanage, explains, a caretaker is charged with “persuading an elephant to live when it wants to die.”

approximately 35,000 elephants are killed by humans every year. with an estimated 350,000 elephants left in the whole continent of africa, they will be gone in the wild within ten years.

cbc’s the nature of things did a program on the elephants and their caretakers. you can foster an elephant with the david sheldrick wildlife trust online here. for more on the emotional lives of elephants, as well as the david sheldrick wildlife trust and other human efforts to save them, check out these posts

Canadian music festival takes huge step against Native appropriation

From their announcement:

For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.

We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.

Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.
