Daily Mail reporter lies to food bank, steals money from the state, and from people who legitimately need it, all in the name of writing a smear article about food banks.
Mind blown.

"No questions asked" apart from all the questions they asked him…..

Well, that is awful. How much do you have to hate the poor to go as far as to steal their food and then try and shut down places that help them? What could you possibly gain from this?

You can complain to the PCC about this here (though of course, the PCC is toothless and ran by Paul Dacre, but it’s all we have.)

Copy and paste this for ease if you like. Accuracy 1.i) ‘The Press must take care not to publish inaccurate, misleading or distorted information’ There is evidently a huge discrepancy between the headline and what is later stated. The headline clearly says ‘No questions asked’, before the article spends three paragraphs explaining how the journalist was questioned. Whether this is disingenuous, malicious lying or genuine stupidity on the part of the subeditor, it requires apology, correction or removal.

the PCC run by Paul Dacre, ie the man who runs The Daily Mail. good luck with your efforts.

Commit to loving yourself completely. It’s the most radical thing you will do in your lifetime.

She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful.

so many good things going through my dash currently, like a good book i just want to re-scroll and re-scroll again until it’s all sunk in as much as it can. so much outdoors!

so about a month-ish ago i changed jobs, quitting the circus of shit that was virgin active before i had another job lined up, and finding my way into sweatshop, the running retailer.

i guess it was a sign of just how much i couldn’t stand the old place that i made what some people might see as a rash decision, but i’m glad i took the risk. it’s a good feeling to be able to see yourself through others’ eyes as ‘employable’.

new job is hardly rocket-science, nor is it great pay at all, but i actually love it. the people that come in all tend to be decent, interesting people, and all i end up seeming to do is chat to them all, learning about their stories of injury and triumph, motivations and ambitions. i doubt there’s many roles like that within retail, and i’m lucky that i work under people who don’t impose styles on you: they don’t say you have to say this, or say that. i’m just free to be myself in the way i talk to customers and so far it seems to be working.

we’ve also got an altitude centre upstairs, as well as a running school and an impressive gym downstairs limited to 400 members at a time, all of which i can train on. and then there’s the 5k / interval training we run twice a day every day, and i can’t think of many jobs where you get paid to run!

so pay low, job satisfaction high. i think i can take that for now!

this is a post to give thanks.

thanks for the person i am, the people around me, the fortune i enjoy, the life i lead and the comforts i am privileged with.

this is a reminder of the compassion and love i have within me, and the happiness i have learnt to feel.

this is for the roof over my head, the warmth of my clothes and the mildness of our climate. for the books on my shelf, for the bicycle in the garage, for the electricity keeping the room lit. 

this is a recognition of thanks for my health, and my ability to move. this is for the places i’ve been and the people i’ve met, and the choices i can make. 

this is a thanks for everything.

also a good read, although it would help if you visited Sarajevo or were grounded in the realities of Bosnia
