So, in the middle of everything today, we ran across a hellaciously distressed momma mallard and a bunch of her baby ducks that had fallen down a sewer grate. Another guy was already trying to fish them out, so my friend and I called animal control before we tried to fish the rest of them out. When Animal Control got there, we had all of them out and the mother duck quacking very happily. I was surprised - none of us got snapped at or hurt. I was even holding onto a bag at one point that had all of them in it and she just watched me.
I love how the duck is perched on the guy’s butt
I’M SO HAPPY
Wow. This pictures, this story, is INCREDIBLE.

When you want to tear open your skin
Your skin fights back, creates a tough skin of scar tissue to prevent it happening again.
When you take all those pills because you’ve had enough
Your stomach contracts to get rid of them
Because your body
This is literally the best thing I’ve read this year
To This Day - Shane Kocyzan
After a day of stress which ended in a pretty awful breakdown, I decided to do what I do best and express it creatively.
I sketched this vent comic up tonight. I might touch it up later, but I figured I’d post it (and the amazingly motivating and inspirational video) in case I don’t find time to clean it up and finish it.
I wish somebody had told me these things when I was growing up.
I might have a little more self worth and self esteem now..
