If Earth’s water were drained into a single drop, it would measure about 950 miles in diameter. Roughly three percent is fresh water, and just one-third of that is easily accessible. Meeting the growing need for water is a critical challenge. Many countries rely on desalination to produce fresh water, but current techniques are typically energy-intensive, using enough energy globally to power nearly seven million homes. That’s why today GE is launching an open innovation challenge to improve the energy efficiency of water desalination. Find out more about the challenge here.

GE you put that water back right now, you hear me? We need that.

There are a number of students in my GCSE class that have behavioural issues and if they feel uncomfortable they can do anything from storm out of the classroom to throwing chairs and punching their tables. They’re great kids, they just dont always see the light at the end of the tunnel and when they are in stressful situations they dont know what to do other than lash out sometimes. They are 10 months away from their final exams and the pressure is being mounted on them in every aspect of their school lives.

Last week one of the students saw me making little origami stars. Its something I do when I’m feeling anxious to help me focus on something else. He asked if I could show him how to make them. He had been clenching his fists all lesson, which I’ve noticed is a tell that he is struggling to retain composure. I gave him a strip of paper and talked it through with him. Soon half of the class were asking me to show them. They all picked it up really quickly.

After about five minutes and about 8 stars later, the student sat back down and was in a much calmer and motivated mood for the rest of the lesson. Our next lesson I placed a box of paper strips on my desk and when I saw anyone getting worked up about their work I silently placed a strip in front of them and let them get on with it. The lesson after I was amazed to see that students would go up to the box of their own accord, pick up a few strips and head back to their desks to continue working after calming down.

Yesterday I brought a large jar into the classroom and placed my anxiety stars in there. The boys put their strsss stars in there too. When they fill the jar I’m going to bring sweets into the lesson to celebrate them working hard and working through their problems in a positive manner. I know I’m not the teacher they deserve just yet but I feel like I’ve made a big breakthrough with them.

See you there!

it’s one of those nights when i just feel so angry… just angry because the reality sinks in that some people are know are really just kind of not the people i have hoped for them to be… like, they’re not good enough. and the anger is anger at myself for thinking that, and then anger at them for not being more… and then anger at just feeling like i didn’t choose the right people to spend time with. like i made the wrong decision with friends, somehow. like maybe everything is just too disappointing that i’m angry at how disappointing everything is.

i can’t help feeling that if these people were true friends, they’d stop and try to ask me what’s wrong and try to talk it out rather than just playing their dumb lighten the mood shit. or maybe i’m just that terrible a person by expecting them to deal with my crappy treatment. i don’t know. i also can’t help but feel that you, you there reading this, will always be so much closer to understanding me than they ever will. 

and this, what is the reason for this? is it just the fact that you have been given these thoughts of mine just tossed out because i need to get them out? instead of having to get past that barrier of getting me to bare these thoughts to you? or having to  be the one to just initiate this dive into the deep?

i’ve always felt uncomfortable if people are obviously not content, and people don’t talk to them about it. it’s kind of a shitty task to just be the one to say, what’s wrong, want to talk about it? but it’s a task i force myself to take even though i know i won’t like what i’m going to hear. but i hate the feeling of wanting to blow up within myself, and i sure as hell don’t want others to feel that too.

just, good riddance. some days i don’t know how people can get through life alone, but maybe if they’ve just been fed up with the constant disappointment other people are, i can potentially see how just avoiding people forever would be preferable.

then again, is that a weakness, not being able to accept others flaws?

i just need someone to talk to rather than just pat me on the shoulder like that makes everything better. just bullshit.
