A Suggestion:

Make tangible memories. Take photos and screenshots and selfies. Save plane tickets and concert stubs and pretty leaves you find on the side of the road. 

Write down how it felt like sunshine on your skin when they hugged you, or how you managed the perfect ratio of tea to milk on that rainy sunday you spent inside.

Highlight the paragraphs that mean something to you, or scrawl them on paper torn from a notebook and blue-tac them to your wall. Jot down that accidentally-inspirational piece of advice from your professor, or the joke that had you and your friends doubled over in tears.

Don’t be afraid of giving the past material form. Time is fake, and good moments make great memories.

😂😂😂😂😂 When you buy plane tickets (a month in advance) to see your long distance boyfriend– but last minute he quits his job, moves to a different state, and you still got plane tickets worth $310 sitting in your email and you ain’t gonna fucking use them 😂😂😂😂😂😂

There are things that you dream about endlessly, and hope that those dreams could one day become a reality. Usually these dreams feel so far out of reach that the thought of it coming true is overwhelming in and of itself. But it is those very dreams that, when they do come into fruition, have the most meaningful impact on your life. Yesterday I got to experience this form of overwhelming, have such a life-changing experience, because my dream finally came true. After an impulse buy of a ticket months ago coupled with a draining of the last of my savings to buy a plane ticket to and from New York, I was able to attend yesterday’s performance of White Rabbit Red Rabbit and meet Stana Katic.

Not only did I get to meet Stana, but I got to watch her perform in an incredible play and do an absolutely phenomenal job. The range that Stana has proven capable of on Castle is nothing compared to the range I witnessed last night. Every emotion she felt you felt, every word of the play permeated not just your mind but your soul. Stana was able to bring to life a magnificent play and make it entirely her own. As a result, September 26, 2016 has officially gone down as one of the best moments of my entire life.

Yesterday I also learned that there is no end to the love that I have for the woman pictured above. She is incredibly kind and gracious, taking time out of her evening to make sure every single person in attendance got a picture with her and an autograph. The conversation I shared with her will forever be ingrained in my head, just as I will never forget the feeling of her wrapping her arm around me when we took our picture together. Stana was able to make each and every person feel special, something that only a truly extraordinary person can accomplish.

Thank you Stana, for making yesterday the best day of my life. I am still pinching myself because I can’t believe that a dream that seemed so far away finally became a reality.
