Once you start drinking, you typically completely forget your goal. It makes you feel like the king of the hill, the queen of the world!
It helps you forget that anything is ever difficult. The same way alcohol makes you forget all of your nagging insecurities (your haircut is unflattering, you need to lose 10 pounds), it dulls your perception of other people's flaws. When I began meditating, I slowly started to see the truth of who I was.
We will — and are — doing all we can to maintain a safe and orderly environment for all students and staff in our district."She declined to provide further information, citing student privacy laws. No firearms or other weapons are mentioned in the police report or court documents regarding this case.
The assault is alleged to have occurred between 6 p.m. Polk County Jail records show Hough was booked at a.m. A bond had not yet been set in his case as of Thursday morning.
