    Hello. Now that Donald Trump is elected-president, some people are wearing safety pins for those who will be hurt under Donald Trumps rule. You wear the pin to make yourself feel less guilty because you think it’ll make a difference.

    I didn't know how to tie my laces for a long time. I tried all the methods people showed me; spinning the laces which are snakes, into loops and tie them to make a knot, and tying a lace around a loop to create a knot. No matter which method I tried I would never succeed. Whenever I tried to tie my laces I would tuck my laces into my shoes because when I tried to tie shoes I had with laces on them, the laces would always come apart, and I ended up just sitting there like a rock. One method I…

Amira instinctively tried to yank the dart out, blood seeping slowly from the wound. “The…fuck?” The words came out breathlessly as her head gush with dizziness.
