im having a little trouble raising money for my gofundme and im gonna beg my blog for some help again.
im 18, disabled, queer and i am being kicked out of my house september 1st. but i have bills.

WHY I NEED THIS MONEY:
i NEED this money because my government insurance has expired now that im not a high school student and i cant pay my bills from when i was in the emergency room for a suicide attempt. i have NO MONEY to use to move out and no money to pay these bills. i was laid off from my job at chipotle because my fibromyalgia was causing me too much pain to work long shifts and instead of being helped out i was let go. my commissions arent making enough to cut it.

WHY I NEED TO MOVE OUT:
my mother has cripplingly bad OCD and bipolar disorder that have worsened over the years. she cannot cope with these things and often takes her fits of rage out on me. she is my sole parent after my deadbeat father’s suicide and i am ridiculed and hit for mundane reasons i cannot help. she also insists on calling me dirty even though im very clean because of her cleaning OCD. im moving out with my girlfriend in oklahoma (im moving from ohio) for a safe, loving environment. my mother also doesnt respect me whatsoever and treats my (diagnosed) depression and PTSD like they arent real disorders and i need to be taken seriously. i need to get far away.


without this money i may have to stay in ohio longer than i need to. i will do art for you. i will skype with you. i will provide moral support and beauty advice or anything you need as a friend just help me get some fucking money. please.

im almost up to 700 :) thanks so much yall i rly love u

Bastille | 'Pompeii' (Audien Radio Edit)

One of the biggest remixes I’ve heard in a long time. Audien completely transforms Bastille’s ‘Pompeii’ into one killer banger that should be conquering the clubs in no time.

FAKE MOVIE: THE SIMS - Where’s Bella?
Stepsiblings William and Alice Sim, alongside with their parents, just moved to the neighbourhood of Pleasantview. On the first day they are greeted by Mortimer and Bella Goth, the richest couple on Pleasantview, and everything seems normal. Days go by, their parents find jobs, they go to school, they meet new people and develop friendships. One day, Bella Goth goes missing, and the Sims siblings decide to begin an investigation with the help of Nina Caliente, to find Bella, who was last seen scaling the deck of Don Lothario’s convo…


They are actually doing a Sims movie, well, at least they bought the rights to make one. And I got this little idea since there are a lot of theories and easter eggs about Bella Goth in the three games.
The dream-cast would look something like this:

With the main characters being two witty-teenagers, you can have a fun detective movie with a dark twist.
