So I got home from work today, did my insanity fit test, fiddle around with things in my room, then hopped online.
I got on facebook and saw my little cousin’s status:
Stupid cancer. We all want a new car, a new phone. A person who has cancer only wants one thing… to survive. I know that a lot of you “who think you’re too cool” probably won’t re-post this. But a very little amount of my friends will. Put this on your wall in honor of someone who died of cancer, survived, or who is fighting against it now.
Granted, I’ve seen this status so many times, its something that will circulate on facebook every now and then… but seeing it as my little cousin’s status broke my heart. And if you know me or if you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that i hate that expression, but seeing that as my cousins status broke my heart.
So I guess I should explain why… about 2 years ago (at this point its 1 year, 11 months and about 4 days) my aunt died. She battled with cancer for about as long as I can remember…at least since I was in 4th or 5 grade i guess… She always fought it and it came back…and it always put a strain on their family, that type of thing does. When we were younger they used to visit a lot more, but when she got cancer things got harder…
I think it was hardest for my youngest cousin in that family (there’s three of them)… because his whole child is consisted of watching her battle with cancer… and I think thats why it hit me so hard when I saw his status. Like obviously I dont forget that their mom died, but its not constantly on my mind, but just seeing it… makes me feel for them… so much.
I watched them struggle for so long, and I still see them struggling, but they’ve come such a long way… idk…this is honestly just a rant… just been emotional lately blah <3
“Has anybody been watching the debates lately? You’ve got a governor whose state is on fire denying climate change. It’s true. You’ve got audiences cheering at the prospect of somebody dying because they don’t have healthcare and booing a service member in Iraq because they’re gay. That’s not reflective of who we are.”—
A lot on my mind right now. Can’t find the right way to vent about it. I just want to sleep forever and not have to think about any of it. I don’t want to go to work. I don’t want to go to school. I want to sleep. I’ve been so motivated these past 2 weeks and one night just ruins it. I just want to close my eyes and disappear…just for a little while.
“Our show itself is very special in that regard. I’ve said this before: we’re not as consistently as funny as a comedy, we’re not as consistently dramatic as a drama, not as consistently action-packed as a “24” or whatever. So if you’re looking for specifically any one of those genres, I don’t know if “Chuck” is your style. But if you’re looking for something that combines all of it, there’s only one show, and that’s ours. I don’t know of any other one. I think that’s what made it so special for our fans. They get it, and they respond to it. There’s plenty of shows, comedies and dramas, that get tons and tons of viewers, but maybe they’re not quite as die-hard. And our fans are just die-hard, just awesome.”—Zachary Levi (source)
