Nobody Is Normal
When I think back to my middle and high school experience, I always felt weird and out of sync with everyone else. I was comparing my insides to my classmates’ outsides and — surprise! — I didn’t measure up. It was only later in life that I realized that this was a universal experience that continues for, as far as I can tell, most of your life? This short promo video for UK youth support hotline Childline (with a Radiohead soundtrack) shows that feeling different is a common experience and urges kids to reach out for help if they’re feeling isolated.
There is nothing wrong with being different from other people. But if feeling different is making you feel isolated or upset, then there are things you can do to feel better.
SO LONG AS IT GETS YOU THROUGH QUARANTINE, RIGHT? Fake coronavirus test results being sold on black market to tourists.
As opposed to the non-fake results which are unreliable and designed to give a positive if at all possible, even if it’s for other Coronaviruses. So impressed.
