A new program at Tufts University plans to help students who plan on attending the school have that “gap year” experience, including volunteering before starting on their degrees. Starting this upcoming fall, the 4+1 program will provide funding for traveling including airfare and travel visas (the bane of my existence), so students can have a cultural immersion and get their introductory drinking exploits out of their system and over with.
“Although she was the only one home, Van Kooten said she had no regard for her safety - instead, she said she was just overwhelmed with “rage“….. ummmmm Hero!!!
Haha, badass Muslim woman. Love it!!!
This lady is so awesome. She lives with her grandma and was studying and had a towel on her head and no shoes but she chased them out of her garden, kicked one up the arse as he climbed a fence, they dropped a camera and laptop, she flagged down a passing driver to help her continue the pursuit, and it turned out he was ex-military, and they finally caught one of them in a park and pinned him as the police arrived. Now she’s going to visit the burglar in prison for the next few months to help with his rehabilitation.
So in summary:
This lady doesn’t just defend her home and loved ones, she will hunt you down, team up with other skilled individuals, get you put away, and then teach you the consequences of your actions until you’re a valuable member of society once more.
Seriously she’s a frigging superhero.
"I just thought, ‘these guys are in my house….I’m gonna get you.’" nice.
Last week my boss told me I was “the most independent person he knows” because I wouldn’t let him walk down the block to complain about a watch battery I bought that he deemed faulty. He means well, but I’m just saying…I have legs and a sassy mouth, I can do that myself.
