Expectations, Library

iworkatapubliclibrary:

I was searching for a DVD for a group of younger high school boys when I overheard this conversation between them:

Boy 1 [looking up at our skylight]: “Why do all libraries have tall ceilings?”

Boy 2: “Because libraries are cool.”

Boy 1: “Yeah, libraries are pretty cool places.”

Boy 2: “They’re cooler than people expect them to be.”

A healthy relationship is one where two independent people just make a deal that they will help make the other person the best version of themselves.

How to feel better about yourself:

1. Sleep without underwear every once and a while, it’s good for you. Maybe even try sleeping naked.

2. Take long baths with tea, ice cream, or whatever you please. Throw in bubbles if that’s your style.

3. Look at yourself like you look at your best friend. Find the freckles you love, what your eyes look best with, what hairstyle compliments your smile.

4. When you look at your naked body in the mirror, only think good things. Say compliments to yourself aloud. Watch yourself smile, and encourage yourself.

5. Take yourself out on a date. Treat yourself to the things you love. You’re alone yes, but there is nothing wrong with that. Remember all the times you were smothered by people and talking crowds, and you only wanted to be alone with yourself.

6. Write yourself a love note. Tell yourself your favorite things about you, and tell yourself all the things you want to become. Tell yourself you’ll love you forever.

7. Take pictures of yourself. Selfies are magnificent! Take 500! Take them everywhere! Find the good lighting! Pick your favorite one and realize what a wonderful work of art you are.

8. Acknowledge your accomplishments, all of them. Got out of bed? It’s hard sometimes and it’s been hard before, so honestly great job. Drink lots of water, and at the end of the day congratulate yourself for staying hydrated. Let yourself know when you are proud, and soak up the feeling of “well done”.

It’s not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It’s our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.

Making Your Own Survival Tin

Here are the specific items I recommend placing in your Altoids or similar sized tin:

  1. Ritter Mk5 CRKT Knife (comes with an Altoids size storage tin): Perhaps the most important item in your kit. This excellent little knife can be used for constructing a shelter, hunting, skinning, a ferro rod striker, and for self-defense.
  2. Nano LED Mini-Flashlight: A great little flashlight. LEDs provide more light and consume less power than traditional lights. Can also be used for signaling. 
  3. Emergency Water Bag (1 Quart): Water is critical as you can only live three days without it. Yes, this item takes up a lot of room in your tin, but it provides an effective way to collect water from natural sources like lakes and streams.
  4. Water Purification Pills (4 ea):  Each pill sterilizes 1 liter of water. Remember to wait the required amount of time for the bacteria to be killed. 
  5. Compass, Button Size: Navigational aid for those who are directionally challenged and for those who are in bad weather and/or poor visibility.
  6. Matches, waterproof (6 ea): Fire is absolutely vital in a survival situation. It can keep you warm, cook your food, sterilize your drinking water, and can be used as another source for light at night. Having a fire is also good for morale and if you’re in a survival situation, that can be pretty important.
  7. Match Striker: Needed to light your matches.  
  8. Cotton Tinder (3 ea): A great fire starting aid. 
  9. Spark-Lite Firestarter (Orange): Another great source for starting fires. Can start 1,000 fires.
  10. Vargo Titanium Whistle:  A durable signaling device to call for help. 
  11. P-38/51 Can Opener: Can also be used as a small cutting tool, ferro rod striker, or flat-bladed screw driver. 
  12. Tin Foil: Can be used in cooking, for signaling, for collecting water, or as a drinking cup.
  13. Duct Tape: A multipurpose gem and a MacGyver favorite. Duct tape can be used for repairs, restraining, affixing, and attaching. It’s use is limited only by your imagination.
  14. Fishing Kit: Small assortment of hooks and sinkers. You gotta eat and being able to fish may help with the boredom, too.
  15. Fishing Line, 20ft (bobbin): Can be used not only for fishing, but also for clothing repairs, and for stitching up deep cuts.  
  16. Alcohol Wipes (1 ea): For cleaning wounds and as a fire starting aid. 
  17. Band Aid (1 ea): For cuts, abrasions, and blisters.
  18. Butterfly sutures (1 ea): For closing up cuts and wounds. 
  19. Needle: For digging out deep splinters and along with a little fishing line can be used to stitch up wounds and repair clothing.  
  20. Benadryl (2 ea): Allergy season can be rough! Also great for allergic reactions to stings. 
  21. Imodium AD (1 ea): For when you get a bad case of the runs from bad food or water. 
  22. Aleve (2 ea): Pain Killer and Relaxer. 
  23. Safety Pin: Perfect for securing items to your clothing, removing deep splinters, and for making temporary repairs to clothing.
  • Ranger Band: Essentially a giant rubber band cut from an old bicycle inner-tube and used to secure the tin. Can be used as a small tourniquet or as part of a sling-shot.
