you know I used to describe my hometown to people like the song “My Hometown” by Bowling for Soup; run of the mill, low-end trap that I was lucky to get away from
but now it’s slowly turning into “The Kids Aren’t Right” by The Offspring; drugs, drop outs b/c of pregnancies, joblessness, and now suicide….god damn it Jesse, why couldn’t there have been another way
Guys, please please please please please… If you need help, seek it.
Word hit last night that a Sigma Chi at my school shot himself. I didn’t know him personally, a lot of my friends did, but my school is so small that we have such a sense of community that it still hits home.
I also just found out that a friend of mine from back home and one of my little brother’s best friends killed himself last night too…
Please, you all are loved. We don’t want to live without you in our lives. And I beg you to seek help. This is the first time I’ve ever said this but I was stupid enough to not seek help on different occasions (some much more recent than I’d like to admit) but I am happy to still be here. My friends and family are happy I’m still here. Please, we don’t want to lose you…
That’s right, we’ve reached 3000 followers, hurrah! To celebrate, I’m giving away a copy of Harry Potter agus an Órchloch, the Irish language translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Entering from overseas? Don’t worry, I’ll ship ANYWHERE!
HOW TO ENTER It’s simple, just reblog this post! Remember, you can reblog all you want, but likes won’t count as entries! You don’t have to be following Irish Things, but it’d be nice if you did! Also, if you check out my personal blog it’d be very much appreciated, as I’ve been running this blog single-handed from day one.
That’s all there is to it!
Important Things: This giveaway is in no way affiliated with Tumblr Inc., apart from the fact that it is taking place on their website. It is not being run by them.
I will be using a random number generator to select a winner, so sending repeated ‘please let me win!’ messages won’t help your chances!
If you are under 18 and entering, ask the permission of an adult to enter, as you will have to supply me with an address to post the book.
This giveaway closes at 00:00 GMT on the 4th of October, so get going!
I don’t actually know if multiple reblogs count as multiple entries?? (does anyone know?) but I figured it wouldn’t hurt right?
