robin williams died today.
here is a list of things that robin williams was:
funny
sharp
kind
clever
and sad.
that’s important, the “and sad,” because sometimes sadness can feel like the only thing we are. it can feel all-encompassing. it can feel like the only thing anyone could possibly see, when they look at you: sad. that person is so, so, sad.
but there is always an “and.” we are never just sad. we are never only. we are always and.
we have all known people who were sad, who are sad; some of us are ourselves sad. being sad does not remove the other parts of us, though it can make them harder for us to see. when you are sad, you don’t necessarily feel like you are also funny, and sharp, and clever, and kind.
but you still are. you don’t have to feel like something to be it.
those things are written on your bones, they are woven into the fabric of your skin. sadness can feel so big, so big and overwhelming and complete, even when it is not a directed sadness. maybe especially when it is not a directed sadness, when it’s a depression that has no direct cause and nothing we can name.
sometimes the sadness is too big. people try to cut it out, or starve it out, or drink it down, or drug it silent. if this is you: i’m sorry. if this is you: you are not alone. if this is you: remember that the solution is never to give up, because you do not live in a vacuum. there are people waiting for you. there are films and songs and books and not-sadness waiting for you. i know that you don’t feel like waiting, but wait anyway.
if you need help, ask for it. here’s a link to crisis centers across the globe. if you live in the U.S., this is the national suicide prevention hotline: 1-800-273-8255.
robin williams died today, but the genie didn’t, and mrs. doubtfire didn’t, and peter pan didn’t. sean maquire didn’t, and professor philip brainard didn’t, and alan parrish didn’t. batty koda didn’t. john keating didn’t. you didn’t. 
don’t.

i wasn’t going to reblog anymore on this but i read this and i feel like there are probably some folks on here who might need to read it, too.

@DarrenCriss: Deeply sad to hear Robin Williams has left us. Thank you for the inspiration, man- I wouldn’t be doing what I do now if it weren’t for you.

Awww Darren </3

I was literally just thinking the other day about how I need to watch Dead Poets Society again… 

Now I will definitely be watching it tomorrow after work!

Sooo, I just finished binge watching all 3 seasons of Veronica Mars (it’s taken a few weeks) and the movie- and now, as much as I’d been anxious to see how it all ended, I’m sad that it’s over!! 

So freaking good and enjoyable, and I’m REALLY glad the movie exists, because I do not think I would have been satisfied with where the season 3 finale left off… I really feel for all the long time fans who had to wait 9 years for more of a solid conclusion! 

It makes me really happy that Veronica and Logan got their epic ending :D I’m usually really turned off by the whole on-again-off-again relationship drama stuff, but I dunno.. with those two, I just really feel like them being together is what’s right. Which is crazy thinking about how much of a douche Logan acted like in the beginning of the series, but he’s just a really well developed character (and also played really well by Jason Dohring), and he and Veronica are always there for each other in the hardest moments, and they challenge each other in a way that can be as good as it can make things difficult between them, and just.. yeah. Love! 

I think it was perfect that they let them have those 9 years apart, though.. I think at the time the show left off, they both had some maturing to do before it could work. 

As for the movie as a whole, I don’t know that it was necessarily a totally perfect, mindblowingly good movie or anything, but it was definitely a welcome ending to it all, and nice to see where the characters are at 9 years later :) 

Ahh I enjoy having seen everything now, but I really am going to miss it! It’s weird that I feel nostalgic about it even though I just recently started watching it anyway haha. But I do. Maybe it’s the 9 year jump forward, having gone through the series and then immediately watched the movie. 

Anywho, yeah, excellent show is excellent! And Kristen Bell will always be all kinds of adorbs ^_^

I just finished reading “the Book Thief”. If you think “the fault in out starts” hurt, then you haven’t felt real pain yet.

I just finished reading it too! 

Holy hell, that book was hard to finish. I don’t know that I’ve ever experienced anything quite like it, actually…

I’m always so confused when I see people call Darren egotistical and self-centered.

Like… are we even talking about the same person?

Darren Criss, the man who tweets about almost everything any of the Glee cast members are doing.

Darren Criss, the man who says…

“My past made me who I am today. I can’t just pretend it never happened. But the biggest lesson I learnt from that, is that I can be an example for others who are still struggling! There’s always hope and help for everyone. I think it’s my responsibility to do that, to help. I always refer to this as the “moment of clarity”. It’s hard to explain what really happened, but it was a once in a lifetime kind of moment. I had reached my lowest point and I just knew things had to change quickly because there was just no other way, you know.”

May your soul rest in peace, Cory Monteith.

Life’s too short to be serious. 

I can’t believe it’s already been a year :( 

RIP, Cory. You are missed <3
