So this Christmas, I asked both my boyfriend and mum for an iPad, and both of them got it for me, which I did NOT expect. Yes, I could return it, or sell it, but I actually feel like doing something nice for once. So, yeah.
reblog AND like this post (no more than once, it’s not fair!)
The Prize Doesn’t Always Go To The Most Deserving Irena Sendler 1910-2008
A 98 year-old German woman named Irena Sendler died on May 12, 2008. During WWII, Irena worked in the Warsaw Ghetto as a plumbing/sewer specialist. Irena smuggled Jewish children out; infants in the bottom of the tool box she carried and older children in a burlap sack she carried in the back of her truck. She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers wanted nothing to do with the dog, and the barking covered the kids’ and infants’ noises. Irena managed to smuggle out and save 2500 children. She eventually was caught, and the Nazis broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely. Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar buried under a tree in her backyard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived and reunited some of the families. Most had been killed. She helped those children get placement into foster family homes or adopted.
Last year Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was not selected. Al Gore won - for a slide show on Global Warming.

I am so extremely bored at work. I have nothing to do and I’ve spent 99.9% of my morning browsing through different websites. People.com, facebook, tumblr blogs, fashion blogs, celebrity gossip, LATimes.com, msn news, and other random sites. It’s quiet. I’m bored. I’m restless. I keep looking at the time and only 5 minutes have passed by. This friday is going by way too slow.
I just might sneak out of here at 3. We shall see…
Just knowing the fact that you’re one of the first thoughts in someone’s mind when they wake up. It makes me feel fucking fantastic. That feeling of acknowledgment. That feeling that someone cares. That feeling that someone else is thinking about you. It’s one of the best ways to start off your day. Fuck a good breakfast. Give me a sweet good morning text, and I’m ready for the rest of the day.
