A man is not very tired. He is exhausted


via

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory things.

So many good articles have come out about how this man was such a kind soul. My favorite, while hard to choose, is from Jessica Chastain, which was reported through multiple outlets including E! News. Jessica wrote on Facebook about her experience with Robin Williams saying, "Robin Williams changed my life. He was a great actor and a generous person. Through a scholarship, he made it possible for me to graduate college," the Oscar-nominated Juilliard School alumna wrote. "His generous spirit will forever inspire me to support others as he supported me. He will forever be missed."

When she was profiled in Interview several years ago, Chastain elaborated on Williams' generosity. "I'm the first person in my family to go to college. We didn't have a lot of money, and Juilliard is a pretty expensive school," she said. "Robin Williams is a very generous Juilliard alumnus, and gives a scholarship every two years to a student, and it pays for everything, and I got it."


Just wow. This is a blow to the world indefinitely. Bless you Mork, Armand Goldman, Euphegenia Doubtfire, Jack, Oh Captain, My Captain, among so many others. Most importantly, bless you Robin Williams. Thanks for the goodness.

Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink -Lilly Pulitzer

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)
