please understand something: high school is a bunch of bullshit. You’re going to sit through classes you hate with teachers and students you hate. You’re going to have hours of homework one night and none the next. You are going to get stressed. You’re going to cry. It’s quite possible you will…
so, courtney and i have both been thinking about this, and we didn’t come to this conclusion very easily, but we need your help.
courtney egberts has been dating me, alana striders since july of 2011. our 3rd anniversary is coming up, and we’ve never once met each other in person! we make plans to meet up what seems like at least three times a year, and they always fall through due to outside factors or money issues.
this year, we really, really want to make it happen.
so, here’s the deal: we are both trying our hardest to save money for this, but we need help. specifically by way of money. that’s where you might come in, if you’re able and willing!
we currently need roughly 500 dollars, and that’s just for her plane ticket.
if you can’t donate, don’t feel obligated! this is entirely optional, we’re just looking at all of our options, and if you don’t want to donate, that’s fine! we totally understand.
if you could, though, please signal boost this! it would mean the world for us to finally get to meet each other.
thank you so, so much for taking your time to read this. we love you guys!
Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year.
When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.
But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)
At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.
Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”
Amen to that, Hugh.
