They say

That there are five stages of grief. I’m stuck somewhere between depression and acceptance. Everyone thinks I have it so together. Haha if you only knew.


let’s just talk about what a great picture this is


let’s just talk about what a great picture this is

I am falling into a rabbit hole.

A little over two months

Since you’ve been gone.

Lately I’ve been in good spirits. This is the first time in a couple of weeks since Ryan and I got in a fight that I’ve really let myself think about it. I’ve been keeping myself busy with a full course load, a 30 hour work week, Knight Ad, Ad Club UCF, organizing a flag football team, gym at least four days a week, and a healthy amount of partying.

But it doesn’t matter. I can only drink so much, smoke so much, and hook up with different girls until the point where I can’t distract myself.

You’re gone dude and it breaks my heart more than anything I have ever felt. I miss your laugh. I miss the way you would hang with my parents even when I wasn’t around. I miss being a dumb teenager with you, talking about girls we were crushing on, or how to kickflip, or who could beat whose ass in a fight. Everything. I miss it all.

Everyone affected by this loves to talk about how they will see you in the next life or how you speak to them in their dreams. Well you knew me well enough to know that I can’t just accept that, I’m not a believer and it makes this all infinitely harder. I’m not saying that I would ever try to belittle someone’s opinion in regards to that train of thought or anything of that nature, because truth is I could be entirely wrong.

I hope I am.

The worst part is that I don’t want to talk to anyone about it because it upsets them, or I think it will, or I put this pressure on myself to be strong. I’m not sure it’s just hard for me to talk about this because it makes me feel so vulnerable.

If you’ve read up to this part then read on, because I have the best advice you’ll ever receive. Cherish every good person that comes to you in your life. Let them know they are cherished. Share laughter, fun, struggle, pain, everything. Be honest to yourself and make each day count. Because believe me, they count much more in the end.

My heart is broken. My soul is scarred. And you, you might not understand. I sure don’t. All I know is that I miss you. Everyday. Always.

Thank you so much for all the greatness that we had in our friendship. I love you always dude, and I know you knew that.

So long my friend, I hope to see you soon.

Ka-Pow: Watch These Fish Cannons Shoot Salmon Safely Over Dams

Salmon have serious swimming skills—some travel thousands of miles to return to their original homes to breed. But even though they can jump as high as 12 feet in the air, they can’t manage to get over massive concrete dams that we have built to block their journeys back to their homes. Now one new idea could give them a boost. The plan involves whisking the fish through a long vacuum tube at speeds up to 22 miles per hour and then shooting them out the other end like a cannon.
