If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them.
A pre-video ad on Youtube about dementia and Missing Persons Week made me cry just now so I think it’s time to go to bed.

Nah, just dogsitting for a fortnight. One of my Dad’s friends split up with his wife so he’s flown back to the Philippines to get her back. We’ve adopted ‘Miss Jackie O’ while he’s away.
Also I enrolled into my classes this morning. I like to live life on the edge.
Successful and busy day at Uni, however I fell asleep during the Masterchef finale and missed the first half. No one told me being an adult would include that kind of sacrifice.
"oh my god stop criticizing young girls who like 50 Shades of Gray or Twilight you can’t tell them what they can and can’t read"
no we can’t but we have to protect young girls from mistaking abusive behavior for genuine affection at all costs
