I had a request for this gif, I made it with and without text.
My life, through my eyes, keyboard, motherboard...well, you get the point.

Did you know that you can make houses out of plastic bottles? By filling them with sand, and molding them together with mud or cement, the walls created are actually bullet proof, fire proof, and will maintain an comfortable indoor temperature of 64 degrees in the summer time.
And it’s not like there is any shortage on used plastic bottles out there. Here are some statistics from treehugger.com:
“The United States uses 129.6 Million plastic bottles per day which is 47.3 Billion plastic bottles per year. About 80% of those plastic bottles end up in a landfill!”
To build a two bedroom, 1200 square foot home, it takes about 14,000 bottles.
The United States throws away enough plastic bottles to build 9257 of these 2 bedroom houses per day! That’s just over 3.35 million homes, the same number of homeless people in America.
Many people in third world countries have taken up building homes out of plastic bottles, from Africa to Asia. Perhaps the trend will catch on in America and all of those bottles will stop ending up in the landfills. Wouldn’t they be better off housing the homeless? Kinda like all those empty houses scattered all over the country?
On 9th August 2014, unarmed 18 year old Michael Brown was shot by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, sparking social unrest that continues to this day. Here is a petition to prevent police misconduct.
My parents never taught me to trust police. I’ve always known that police bring more harm than good.
My parents didn’t teach me to blindly trust police either. I was taught they are a necessary evil. We don’t involve them in our business, if we don’t have to.

5. You were not specific enough
Did a great ritual for abundance, but didn’t specify what kind of abundance you wanted? Great, now your zucchini plant is making all that extra summer squash when you wanted money. Maybe you can sell zucchinis…
4. Your rituals are more focused on changing the world around you than changing yourself.
All ritual magic works best at changing ourselves, sure, your neighbor is a jerk and you want them to be at least polite, but maybe if you were nicer to them they would be more polite to you. A ritual helping you have patience or having a better way of communicating with them would probably do more good in the long run.
3. Your ritual was directed towards a deity you have never interacted with before.
“Hi! It’s me, that person you don’t know? Yeah, I need some shit.” Good way to set up a reputation of being a needy jerk. People have long standing relationships with deities for a reason! And that reason is, when you work for someone else, they are more likely to work for you. At the very least give them an offering for their time.
2. There was no sense of sacrifice in your ritual.
That’s right, sometimes you have to give something up to get something in return! Ritual magic sounds like a great way to get what we want with very little cost, but it does not work that way! If you do a ritual for change, you need to be willing to sacrifice something. A nice bottle of wine (not for you, for the spirits!), a dedication that once a week you will give the spirits some food, or sacrifice some of your own comfort. If spirits see you struggling for something, they will be more likely to want to help you. To sacrifice your comfort you can do ritual all night, dance for the spirits for hours, do a sweat, or give up chocolate. There are a myriad of sacrifices of personal comfort that will have little to no ill effect on your health.
1. You did that ritual, and nothing else.
Do all the rituals you want to get a job, but unless you went job hunting, handed out some resumes, and put in the legwork, you won’t get one. Sure that was a powerful and awesome ritual, you got everything right you possibly could of, but if you did not physically do anything, the likelihood is no one is going to call you and offer you a job.
This is a great post!
