*kidding* I actually have it pretty darn good, which makes my anxiety all the more frustrating. I was just driving home from dropping off another charter school application for VC *fingers extra triple crossed* when I heard the Superman song with the "not easy to be me" quote and it seemed to capsulize exactly how I am feeling.
I know I have a tendency to apologize whenever I do one of my more melodramatic posts-- but this time I'm just going to say thank you for all your advice and encouragement and for letting me know that I am not alone. I know what I need to do. I just need to remind myself of what that is on days like today when everything is back to relative "normal" and I think I have absolutely no problem - bwwwwaaaahhhaaaaaaa
Another unusual thing that I tend to do (in case I haven't already frightened you away by discussing my neuroses) - is to remember quotes for years. Not famous quotes. Just things people have said that stick out in my mind.
I don't know if any of you are familiar with Brooke Sheild's show from many years back - Suddenly Susan. Her co-star, David Strickland, (who always reminded me of Chris O'Donnell) was the guy who played a rock critic at the newspaper. Sadly, the handsome guy pictured at right ended his own life after stopping his medication for bipolar disorder. His death followed a three day alcohol and cocaine binge with Andy Dick. Somewhere I recalled an interview where he said something to the effect that you can have everything in the world (fortune, fame, etc.) but if you don't have your mind, what do you have? I remember nodding in agreement. *******no I am not contemplating anything drastic- just thought his quote was very insightful and ever so true.*********
While trying to find his exact quote on the internet (couldn't find it), I came across a site linking Andy Dick to several celebrity tragedies. Apparently three of his closest friends were Phil Hartman, Chris Farley and David Strickland. This is a Six Degrees of Separation no one would want!!!!
And here is Andy back in the news again for grabbing some dude's "package." He looks none too happy about it.
