Why, yes. Yes it is.

I MIGHT have gotten Netflix again and I MIGHT have a small (huge) crush on David Tennant as Dr. Who.

I'm single now, Doctah.

Speaking of nothing we were talking about (hey, good segue!) Jen over at Epbot posted an interesting and insightful post about anxiety and panic attacks yesterday. A lot of my favorite bloggers suffer from anxiety, panic attacks, and/or depression. Not just bloggers, but real people in real life. I wish I could be best friends with all of them (yeah, that's not creepy at all...) and help them through it, but I can't. I'll settle for being humbled by their struggles and strive to be more understanding and helpful when my friends are depressed/anxious/etc. 

Taking a serious turn in 3...2...1...

I know someone who committed suicide. It was three years ago and he didn't talk to anyone about his suicidal thoughts or reach out for help. I wish I could have been there for him, but I can't change that. Now I'm doing this walk to remember him and hopefully help some other people. It's okay to talk about it. I won't judge you, I'll just listen. Okay?

If you live in the Dallas/North Texas area, come out and join us. This is my first year to participate, so I'm not sure what to expect. Sometimes I think walks like this are silly and first-world ways to feel better about something or other. Then I realize that the walk itself isn't the point, it's seeing other people going through a similar experience YOU are going through. I'm walking to keep my friend's memory alive. Why will you walk?
