i like climbing mountains

You know what really got to me when I watched Louis performing Just hold on? He looked so fucking small and young, clean shaven with that short haircut. There was no “power stance” TM there, just a little boy who lost his mum and was singing his heart out and that broke my heart in two.  

By the time the song ended, tears were rolling down my cheeks and I felt like he climbed a mountain. I felt like he climbed it and moved it at the same time. Like he could rule the world with just his pinkie. 

People wonder why we love him so much? Why we would go to the end of the earth for him. I couldn’t tell you. What I can tell you is no one else can make me go through that many emotions in three and a half minutes, no one else manages to make me root for them as much as him. No one else give that much of themselves in three minutes.

Let’s give back people. Give him that number one.

KEEP STREAMING JUST HOLD ON.

I was climbing Mt. Everest in a ball gown and heels. I was just climbing this huge mountain like it’s nothing. I got to the top and there was a huge mansion there. Will Smith waited for me at the door. We then went to Prom together.

More positivity for my fellow lovely medical students who suffer from mental health problems! ❤

I think I’m going to centre this blog around it a bit more, I’d like to reach out to others who are similar and I think it would be lovely if we could support each other on our medical journeys. 

The neurotypical medical student community can feel very cliquey and study-obsessed. Very “drinking coffee until 3am writing assignments” and really really disheartening for disabled students. 

Sometimes at med school I feel so lonely; like even though I’m climbing the same mountain, someone has attached a massive boulder to my foot. It may be an adventure but it’s also a near constant struggle. And I know that others struggle (because the course is frustratingly grueling!) but throw in mental illness and it can be torturous.

I just want to reach out to you all and say I’m here all the time if you ever want to chat or vent about it.

On a date in Night Vale

Me on a Date: So what are your interests?
Them: Well, I like mountain climbing -
Me, shoving breadsticks into purse:
MOUNTAINS AREN’T REAL.
Sheriff’s Secret Police: *arrest me for possession of wheat/wheat by-products* Sorry we have to go right now immediately.

“… hmmm… if I say my wish… You promise you won’t laugh at me?”
“Of course I won’t laugh!”
“Someday, I’d like to climb this mountain we’re all buried under. Standing under the sky, looking at the world all around… That’s my wish.”
[You hear laughter.]
“… hey, you said you wouldn’t laugh at it!”

“Sorry, it’s just funny…That’s my wish, too.”

* So? Don’t you have any wishes to make?
* … hmmm, just one, but… It’s kind of stupid.
* Don’t say that! Come on, I promise I won’t laugh.
* … hmmm… if I say my wish… You promise you won’t laugh at me?
* Of course I won’t laugh!
* Someday, I’d like to climb this mountain we’re all buried under.
Standing under the sky, looking at the world all around… That’s my wish.

* … hey, you said you wouldn’t laugh at it!
* Sorry, it’s just funny…
That’s my wish, too.

Do you think of yourself as a consistent person?

I don’t anyone in the entire world is consistent. Of course there are the enlightened and the exceptional, but [personally] I haven’t calculated any changes to be consistent. I tend to just take what is given. That’s how I am as a singer and actor too. I think its natural to change yourself to fit a situation. It’s not a rule or anything, but I do think I should always do what I can within the circumstances.

What is your earliest memory?

I don’t really have any early memories. I forget the past easily, and my personality is forward-looking. So I don’t think I have any memories exactly. I’m very in awe when I see the other members recall their early memories. I do still remember junior high, high school. I remember, in elementary school, things like climbing the mountain next to our school and playing around. We had a mountain by our school, and I would play in the trees and the soil with my friends.

Times when you think of yourself as grown-up?

I have never thought of myself as grown-up, yet. But, will I think of myself as grown-up, even as a grandpa? I don’t know. I’ll have to be one to know, but for now I don’t think I have once. I still think of myself as young and lacking. The first time I had alcohol, rather than thinking “I’m grown-up,” I thought “I’ve become an adult.”

Do you think people are primarily shaped by internal factors or external ones?

Because of external ones. I think people are all the same. What they have at birth, what they possess innately, I don’t think changes. A person most changes from the people and the environment surrounding them.

What do you think of yourself unchanging despite your surroundings?

Um, depending on how my environment changes, I do think I’ll change a lot. I’m always keeping in mind “let’s not harm others.”

When are you personally most yourself?

Right now. Just as myself. I don’t think there’s a time where I’m ‘most’ myself.

Has there been a time where people you were close with seemed like a stranger?

None. Whoever it might be, I think you have to acknowledge a person for who they are, know to respect their choices, and know how to admit to your faults if you’ve wronged them.

What is something you need in order to understand others?

To be open yourself, foremost. I have to be open first to understand others.

Challenge - Day Five, Permission to Sleep

My hours that followed work today were completely unproductive due to the weather, pain and emotional strain. One of my besties lost a sibling to cancer today and it hit me hard–hurting for my friend, hurting from my own past, remembering losing my own precious brother to cancer. The wind-chill outside is the harshest it’s felt all winter and just taking the dogs out feels like I’m climbing a mountain. Of course my fibromyalgia takes a front seat during days like this. I’m exhausted. And so, today’s challenge is simply giving myself permission to sleep. I normally beat myself up if I take a nap longer than a half an hour but today, I fell asleep when I got home and I have been snoozing off and on since. It is a challenge to not feel guilty about sleeping. As a mom, dog owner, head of household with a never ending to do list, I always view sleep as inconvenient at best and a sin at worst – no matter how wrong that sounds. So although my day five challenge may seem like a bit of a copout, it is somewhat of a challenge for me to accept my body’s signals and sleep without guilt. Challenge accepted…good night!

Thanks for sharing your battle with chronic illnesses. I too have one. I feel like I've climbed a mountain just to get ready in the AM. Then the rest of the day & responsibilities have to be met. Ugh. I often wish we could wear a cast on our arms or legs so people could see we are struggling with something & understand. When it's invisible so many people don't get it or keep asking why aren't you better yet. Thanks again for sharing with us. Know I understand what you are going through. Hugs <3

Anon you are so, so right! Invisible illnesses are the absolute worst!! 

If you ever want to talk about our struggles or just life in general never hesitate to shoot me a message!!

Love you Anon!!!

alright, how in hell do i be gay without being too gay? like, i want to hang up bi pride flags and order shirts and all that shit but  havent come out to my dad and my mom and stepdad arent too comfortable with the idea. so like, i sorta need a happy medium i guess. like i just want to climb mountains and shout “im bisexual” from the top but i go to a religious school so i could be putting my safety at risk if i tell too many people. plus, i like a girl at school but theres no way for me to know if shes gay without telling her im gay and i dont want to tell her because you never know whos a homophobe and whos not but shes so cute and short and has blonde hair and i sit across from her in homeroom and my heart just <<<333 when i see her. how do i be gay without being gay? ya feel?
