Love “Da Man Wit the Chips” but Jameila White is the new “Protest MVP.” #staywoke #trill
It really warms my heart to see the library looking out for its community in the light of everything happening in Ferguson.
EDIT: Be sure to follow Ferguson Library on twitter.

wait what the fuck?
Not surprised. They let him die.
Same with Eric Garner
That they refused to give him help should be enough for a manslaughter charge - but that should be the last resort.
I knew someone with CPR training who witnessed this must have offered to help even though the cops didn’t attempt to render first aid….Most first responders do their job to help save lives,; only the heartless ones discriminate who they assist
I heard about this on twitter over the weekend. So fucking sad man.
Tell me this is misinformation.
No words. She was also with Talib who was told by police to keep his hands up or they’ll blow his brains out. And some resident protestors are exhausted with everything and saying that street medics told them they’re experiencing a subcategory of PTSD.
Spiritual/Mental Health: I have already experienced my first vesper and sabbath around campus and it was amazing! I believe wholeheartedly that God placed me here for a reason, even if I’m still figuring it out. Since I have been here, I find myself being far more interested in ministry than anything else. I do not have any internet access in my apartment and it has allowed me to focus a lot more on my spirituality. And I could always go to the campus library since campus is like a 5 minute walk from my apartment. Now, my mom was a bit upset about the lack of internet/wifi since it is campus housing, but I believe that God is helping me to make time for our relationship. It has allowed my focus on everything to change, hence the other information in this update. The SDA church nearby is also very interesting. They have various bible school classes studying different topics, so I may be able to get my spiritual fill with different areas of study.
I have also decided to stop being so insecure and allowing low self esteem to affect me. The Lord has shown God’s love for me through His sacrifice. He has made me worthy and for me to believe/speak other than that is a sign of my Pride, Idolatry and Doubt. I will no longer allow Satan to use these things against me. The enemy will no longer have the ability to manipulate my emotions to fulfill his evil plans for me. Even if I have to remind myself every 10 minutes of the day. Jesus loves me and that is enough. Now since I have chosen to go in this direction of positivity things have changed. My days are much brighter, my interactions more lively, my confidence in Christ has improved and I’m coming up with all these great ways to improve my life by focusing on God. Please, continue to pray for me as I lay down sins at the foot of the cross. It is getting better, day by day.
Health: I have decided to transition into a whole food/plant based lifestyle. This time, next year I want to be a completely different woman for all of the right reasons. I wish to better my health, to improve my worship and relationship with God – respecting the temple of the Holy Spirit and exercising temperance.
School/Profession: I have orientation next week. Since I’m coming in as a transfer student, there are some things that I need clarification on but nothing too crazy. Also, I’m actually pretty excited about practicum and possibly creating my own opportunities. My focus is now merging Social work and ministry, figuring out a way to use Social Work for God’s kingdom. I ask that you pray for me, especially on this because I want to improve my usefulness for the Lord rather than hinder it.
GA-Work: I have started work as a graduate assistant and it is great! I mentioned that I would like to improve my research skills this year and that’s exactly what I’ll be doing. The GA team and professors are all really kind and encouraging. Although, I get the impression that this position can become pretty stressful but God is good. Keeping an open line of communication with Him helps me handle stress. There are also some other minor (they aren’t really minor though) roles within this job. There are some other volunteer positions that may allow me to become involved, spiritually, in the department which sounds exciting but I would have to find time for all of these things.
Misc/Social: Hm. I’m considering shaving my locks off in about a year. It will be time for me to start a new lifestyle, look and everything. I think that locks are beautiful but there have been some thoughts going through my head that I should be considering. I will actually do some praying and fasting asking God about what He would have me to do because it would be a major change for me. It would also affect some other aspects of my life and I do not wish to draw unnecessary attention to myself.
Ha! FYI The church ladies are still praying for my ‘husband’ (lmbo). Oh man, I legit almost laughed out loud in this library remembering my send off to school (lol). Jesus be a shield! In all seriousness, I miss my church family as goofy as they can be. It is amazing the amount of support and love I’ve been shown from them and I praise God for them.
Alright, that’s all. You’re also welcomed to tell me what you plan on doing for the rest of the year whether it’s school, work, family life, etc. And if not, that’s fine but I will be praying for all of you.
