My brother is 13 years old. He plays video games, listens to rap, and calls every single one of his teachers a “pussy bitch” behind their backs. Especially his teacher “Mr. Ledesma”.Actually he says this exclusively towards Mr. Ledesma. Normally, I would discourage this type of behavior, but in all fairness, Ledesma teaches Algebra and gives extra homework. So the name calling is totally justifiable. All around, my brother is a pretty normal teenager. But lately, he has been acting a little bit different. He’s been having a lot of nightmares and as a result, he’s losing sleep. My initial thought was “Damn, he got someone pregnant. Way to mess up your life!” But it was actually way worse!
My brother told me that lately, he’s been seeing the spirit of a little girl inside of his closet and regularly sees her in his dreams. Upon hearing this I told him to “get the fuck away from me”. After a few minutes of collecting myself, I offered help to resolve this haunting.
For the rest of the night we stood up in hopes of capturing, destroying, and perhaps even killing this ghost. Yes, you can kill a ghost, like all things a bullet to the head will destroy it. Proven fact. Here is what happened: (more…)
We’ve all fallen on hard times, but through our toughest days, it’s important to remember that someone out there is going through trials we can’t even imagine.
Take Max, the 9-year-old Golden Retriever I’m fostering while he recovers from a tragic car accident that took one of his legs and the lives of both his owners. Sounds like enough for one dog, right? Wrong. Because I just asked to go to the store and purchase me a 24 pack of “the cheapest thing they got.”
Wow. What a reminder that you truly never know what someone’s been through. Or where they’re going. (more…)
Ladies, it’s February. One month into the new year and chances are you’ve already abandoned that gym membership and settled back into your routine of de-elasticized sweats and The Bachelor. Even if you climbed the stair master for 11 whole stairs and shoveled raw broccoli into your mouth for exactly three sad desk lunches, you saw no change in your level of self-loathing. And let’s face it, you likely won’t—unless you change your hair to change your life with these great styles for 2017.
1. The Long Bob
Some people call this The Lob, because it sounds cute! If you are afraid of commitment, this is the look for you. Make everyone slightly uncomfortable by making a change they can’t quite put their finger on. Intriguing! Mysterious! (more…)
This, students, is a boa constrictor. Now, who would like to touch it? No one? Remember, even though snakes may seem scary, they’re actually more afraid of having to live with the guilt of killing you than you are of them!
It’s normal to be scared by snakes at first because they seem so bizarre to us and sometimes the unfamiliar can be scary. But the more you learn about snakes the more you realize that for them, what’s scarier than the unfamiliar is the familiar. Specifically the familiar urge to carry out the one task it was built for: murder. You see, they can’t help themselves. Even though their souls can experience the same feelings of love and community as yours, feelings of oneness with each living creature, they know the only oneness they’ll ever truly experience is in sating their bloodlust by turning another soul’s capacity for love into fat to be stored for the deep cold of night. This leaves our lizard friends in quite the philosophical pickle. (more…)
