ok ok i guess it’s that time! where i say embarrassing sappy things!
i shared a bit of this at the end of season 3 but i think it’s worth sharing again: i was in a really intense depressive episode when i first started watching skam. there were so many changes and question marks in my life last fall, and i’d just come out. it was an incredibly isolated time for me. i thought that finding isak was exactly what i needed to get me through that time, and of course he was and will remain one of the most important characters to me forever. but it’s really been the community of people i’ve gotten to know and love through skam that has made me so much happier and healthier. some of you are my friends for life, some friends in passing, but all of you were a part of something so important to me.
i admire all of your creativity and courage, your passion to advocate for what you want to see in the world. you guys inspire me and i love you!
