Okay, so I made a different post about this but I realized I didn’t properly explain my situation, so I’m going to try again.
See, Doctor Who, as cheesy as it sounds, has helped me through some really rough times in my life. At almost 19 years old I was Baker Acted. If you’re unfamiliar with the term it basically means (in my case) that I was put on suicide watch. I was in a bad, bad place. I had just graduated high school, wasn’t going to college, I had no job, and nobody I felt I could talk to.
I saw the magazine while I was in the clinic.
I had heard of DW before. Of course I had. I was a nerd with nerd friends, the word of the nerd travels, but I had never really considered watching it. Thing is though, when you’re in a clinic you have a lot of free time, so that DW magazine and I got real acquainted (it was either that or Cosmo, and I can’t handle that many tips about sex before I start to get grossed out).
I honestly didn’t understand half of what I was reading, but it seemed interesting. So when I got out of the clinic, I decided to give DW a go.
And I loved it!
Of course I did. Have you seen my blog? DW is the entire reason I’m on tumblr. And while the Doctor was great and all, the first character I really fell in love with was Rose Tyler.
Rose inspired me to get out of the rut I was in and not settle for less. She inspired me to be more confident, to not take crap from people, and to take opportunities that come your way and run with them. And most of all she inspired me to be brave. She’s the reason I’m still alive tbqh.
That’s why I want to meet Billie Piper so badly. So I can thank her for Rose Tyler, thank her for pulling me out of my rut and getting me back on track (and of course to give her the Ten doll).
Please, I don’t normally do this but money is tight (I’m a poor college student) and Florida Supercon is coming and I’m desperate. $5 would be awesome, but even if you can’t donate please share. It would mean so much to me to meet Billie and I don’t know when she’s going to be in Florida ever again.
