Greetings,

My name is Joseph Gotto and I am currently a college undergraduate at Drew University. I am hoping to study abroad in Orvieto, Italy this summer with the goal of becoming an Italian tutor. However, the trip is very expensive so I started my own fundraiser to help pay off its cost. I would appreciate it very much if you could check out my fundraiser page, and if you find it necessary, make a donation or share the link to help get the word out. I am a very good student, having earned a 3.981 GPA along with many academic honors, so I would undoubtedly use this opportunity as a chance to further my education and come closer to my academic goals. Please see my fundraiser page for more information or feel free to ask me anything! 
Thank you for your time, I hope to hear from you soon!

Hi all, I am a college freshman who would love more than anything to study abroad in Italy this summer, so I started my own fundraiser to help relieve the tuition cost for my family and I. It would mean so much to me if you could check out or support my campaign, and if possible, make a small donation. If not, then I would still be eternally grateful if you could share the link to my fundraiser on your blogs to help spread the word! I need the help of others in this endeavor to raise money, I most certainly cannot do this alone!

Dont feel disturbed by the thinking mind. You are not practicing to prevent thinking, but rather to recognize and acknowledge thinking whenever it arises.

These unpleasant events replaying in your mind do not exist. They are not happening now. They are memories which you are reacting to. When you let go of memory and become present, there is nothing from the past that can hurt you.
