Awkward

I never realized how great my phone was until my first day of school when I could pretend I was doing something important instead of just feeling shy, awkward, and posting on Tumblr. #introverts #rock

R.I.P.- After battling depression, addiction, and anxiety for decades, Academy Award Winning actor, writer, and comedian Robin Williams committed suicide today. The greatest actors, writers & comedians make us smile through our tears. Pain forces artists to find beauty in tragedy, thereby creating a world, an escape, where it is safe for dreamers to live in. A world where even if our hearts are broken, our lives shattered, and our souls destroyed, we can find solace, safety, in the struggles and triumphs of the characters, letting us know, that no matter our isolation, we are not alone. 

The first time I tried to commit suicide I was fifteen. But, writing saved me. Film saved me. Beauty saved me. And although he couldn’t save himself, Robin Williams saved me. And in the end, we may just be dead poets drunk on the idea that only love and beauty can save us from our brokeness-but, all those in our dead poet’s society know that- poetry, beauty, romance, love- these are what we stayed alive for.

Captain,  Oh, My Captain.
