Mosquitos are so rude, like who gave you permission to bite my ass?

My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that.

To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too…

Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.

My only statement. My brothers’ are also online. Thank you for all your kindness, and goodbye for awhile guys. xo (via zeldawilliams)

Ataui Deng, New York City runway model who was missing for nearly two weeks has been found alive, police say.

Ataui-Deng Hopkins was found Monday at an area hospital, 12 days after she was last seen leaving the rooftop XVI Lounge on West 48th Street near Eighth Avenue on Aug. 6, according to the NYPD.

The 22-year-old models professionally under the name Ataui Deng. 

She has walked the runways for designers like Proenza Schouler, Zach Posen, Malandrino and Lanvin, according to New York Magazine. Hopkins has also appeared in Harper’s Bazaar and Teen Vogue.

The Sudanese-born model has been modeling since she was 14 and lived in Texas before coming to New York City.

A spokeswoman at Trump Models, Hopkins’ agency since 2008, said before the 22-year-old was found that everyone was worried about the “much loved” model and had been making calls and trying to find her. Celebrities including Rihanna also tweeted her photo during the search.

Hopkins’ friend, celebrity chef Roble Ali, said she had disappeared before for a day or two before when she felt like she needed space. But he said he got worried about this most recent incident because she’d never been gone so long.

In an Instagram post after she was found, Ali thanked thanked police and friends for their efforts.

"She is safe and sound," he said. "I want to thank all of our friends and followers and especially the NYPD for their swift and dedicated response."

Celebrities doing the ALS ice bucket challenge

wow im really happy that all of these wealthy people would prefer doing this than donating money to a charity that will save lives

Okay, I’m a stop you right there. Yes, the basis of the challenge is dump water on your head or donate. But what this challenge is meant to do is RAISE AWARENESS. People who see this end up wondering and then learning what ALS is. And who better to spread the message than celebrities?

People who do the challenge are also still asked to make a donation, and to pass on the challenge. This is good. These celebrities are raising awareness, spreading the message, and probably still donating. But hey, they’re horrible people because they participated in this right? It would ‘ve been better if they wrote a check and never told anyone about it at all.

fun reminder that lady gaga also did this and then donated $10,000 to the foundation and i doubt she’s the only one to do that so pls chill

Seriously, how many people out there had never even heard of ALS, or had only heard of it vaguely in passing before their favourite celeb participated?

And I’m willing to bet a huge number of them donated more than the $100 or whatever you have to donate if you refuse to do it. $100 is pocket change for a lot of these folks.

" As of Monday, August 18, The ALS Association has received $15.6 million in donations compared to $1.8 million during the same time period last year…These donations have come from existing donors and 307,598 new donors to The Association.” (x) You can bet your ass that most of those new donors came because of the celebrities. And once you’ve donated to a charity, chances are good that you’ll donate again. Oh, and sleepcastiel? Have you donated?

Word. Every one of those celebrities donated. You can bet on it.  Why would they not?

but HIV/AIDS has been around for years and affects millions of people but where are those donations? Those challenges? Nothing? okay.
