You may never know them, but they know you
shoutout to all the other ex-gifted & talented/honor student/straight a/senior editor/star student/99th percentile/once-creative burn-outs who have, since high school, realized they are truly miniscule fish in a giant, endless ocean, criticized themselves to the point of creative paralysis, and participated in so much self-sabotage they no longer see the point of doing anything at all because they’re just going to ruin it for themselves anyway
this one’s for you
we had a gorgeous princess who was also a movie star

Really need a Storybrooke scene where, before gaining memory of the missing year back, Regina and Snow get into her car and Snow notices Regina’s air freshener. Snow looks at her frowning while fingering it. Regina retorts, “What? I enjoy the scent of the forest.”
Donald Andrews Jr. A Black man and Business Owner from New York was cleared just last April After being Arrested on Drugs Charges in Scotia, New York. Police were “suspicious” of Donald Andrews Jr.’s store, which sells incense and smoking paraphernalia, and sent undercover informants several times in March. In one of the informants visits he is seen on Andrews hidden camera planting Crack Cocaine on the counter in Andrews Store.
Andrews was arrested in April 2013 and cleared only after he asked a Grand Jury to watch the surveillance footage from his store. The informant used a cellphone photo he took of the planted drugs as evidence that Andrews was dealing, leading to his arrest.
*YES THIS IS FUCKING REAL LOOK IT UP*
The police claim that the informant has now “fled” and they haven’t found his whereabouts. The sheriff “claims” his investigators didn’t purposely framed Andrews and have the “informant” out to be some rogue agent.
FYI this same “informant” has lead to seven other drug-related arrests the Report says.
Sounds like a Movie right? But yall still out here calling people “conspiracy theorists”.
Andrews is now in the process of suing NYPD.

An investigation is underway at George C. Marshall High School, after a Fairfax County mom says her son was allegedly asked to speak “blacker” by a teacher during what the mother said was a lesson on stereotypes.
Nicole Page says it all started when an English teacher asked her son to read a Langston Hughes poem aloud.
Her ninth grade freshman son, Jordan Shumate, is the only African-American in the class. Page says when her son stopped and said he was uncomfortable with the dialogue, the teacher stepped in.
“She interrupted me after I finished the first stanza, and told me to read it ‘blacker,’” recounts Jordan. “She said, ‘Blacker, Jordan. Come on, I thought you were black.’”
And Page says this isn’t the first incident of the teacher’s cultural insensitivity, as reported by her son. She says there was a poem by Tupac Shakur that she wanted him to rap out.
For her part, Page says she is shocked: “Very sad, a mourning for my child’s loss of innocence that he would have to experience something like this.”
“The Marshall High School administrators are taking the accusations seriously and they are pursing the investigation vigorously,” says Jon Torre, spokesman for Fairfax County Public Schools.

THIS SHIT NEEDS TO STOP.
Update: Looks like the teacher, Marilyn Bart, was eventually placed on paid administrative leave while the school investigated. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find any info on what happened after that, though my search has not been super extensive.
WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK?
