When I see anything that my friends are in, much less a few friends, my meter of what I like is completely blown out of proportion because I’m just like, ‘Yay! Go Chris!’ Chris is such force of nature, and I was so proud of him and what he created and what he’s done and his honesty with his life and the way he works. It’s really inspiring. So yes, yes I did enjoy it very much. Criss added that having the chance “to see the fruits of his labor was something I wouldn’t miss.”

So, I got this tattoo a few months ago. I didn’t tell anyone because this means so much to me and I didn’t want people to know this stuff about me. It’s not just a tattoo. It means that I stopped cutting. I wasn’t sure if I should post this or not but a friend of mine wanted to see it. So, if I post this, I at least want people to know the story behind it. The lightning bolt stands for my favorite book. Struck By Lightning written by Chris Colfer. (If you haven’t read it yet, you should definitely go to the next bookstore and buy it! It’s so worth it!) This story helped me to survive High School. I don’t know what I would have done without it. Carson was everything I ever wanted to be and he taught me so much. I’m still not totally like him but I’ve gotten so much better and so much stronger. This little lightning bolt is a reminder that I can do everything I want to and that it’s worth fighting for your dreams! It is also a reminder that I have survived and that I can do it again. I don’t have to hurt myself. I have amazing friends that I can talk to and who are there for me if I need them. I have come so far and I’m proud of me! I know I could have done it without this book but it would have taken me so much longer. I also know that Chris is never going to read this, but if you do, I just wanted to say thank you! This book means the world to me! P.s. English is not my first language therefore I’m really sorry for all the mistakes I made!

In what grade do we stop believing in ourselves? In what grade do we stop believing period? Someone has to be a Nobel Peace Prize winner. Someone has to be a ballerina. Why can’t it be us?

Carson Phillips (Chris Colfer), Struck by Lightning (2012)

I rewatched this movie in honour of Chris’s birthday and it really hit me how much of an under-appreciated genius he is, Carson and Chris. 

Happy birthday, Chris! <3
