School’s not so bad when you spend the day playing with bees, birdwatching, finding beautiful buterflies and harvesting vegetables from the organic garden.

Here are some basics on herd immunity, and here is some more technical research if you’re interested in the details! 

If you’ve ever heard my rants about vaccination, you know it’s a major topic with me. Because hey, I’m one of these immunosuppressed people this comic talks about, so it’s a bit of a sensitive subject. (“Oh, I’m sorry, you don’t like getting vaccinated? I don’t like having three month long respiratory infections because you gave me the freaking flu, but I guess you don’t care about that”)

Essentially, Ellen and her wonderful character Katherine have just said it better than I ever could—and using Shaun of the Dead references, too!!! It’s all about herd immunity—getting vaccinated isn’t just about your own health, it’s about the health—and non-zombification—of the entire human race.

Awesome explanation.

Also vaccines are only like 90% effective, so people who get them aren’t all actually immune.

Also immunosuppressed due to steroids, also seriously pissed off at anyone who doesn’t vaccinate without a damn good medical reason.  And “I’m scared of autism” doesn’t fucking count as a medical reason because I’m autistic too and even the worst of autism is better than what happens when people don’t vaccinate.

On May 4th 1970, Kent State University banded together to protest the Vietnam War. Four students were shot by the National Guard while nine others were injured. To this day, Kent State remembers the dead for simply expressing their First Amendment right. I am a Kent…

Big Crow Lake, the places you took me. This summer, two of my trips went through you, and both took very different directions. The lessons learned on either way were so different, but each so powerful. The first took me on a trip that I never hoped for, or could imagine would have happened. Myself, and the rest of the girls, got a view of the park from above that wasn’t entirely wanted or anticipated. The second, I hiked up with a group of boys to the old fire watch tower, peaked over the edge of the cliff and chose to see the stunning view ahead of me. From both I saw, below and ahead of me, the endless green rolling hills, and captivating lakes and rivers where we paddled for days. In this picture, the world behind me is where I spent my summer.Being in the wilderness taught me things I never wanted to know, it made me fear everything around me, and it put me through hell and back. It challenged me, but it also made me realize that I am stronger than I ever thought I was. I won’t see you again tomorrow, or in a few days, but I’ll be back soon, Algonquin. outlook.
