Sure, there have been times when life sucked, but I was still having a good time by making the best of things. Heck, there are times *now* when life kind of sucks, for entirely different reasons.
But during this particular time I'm thinking of - I was fully aware of how much life sucked.
I try not to classify what I was going through as "depression", since that's an actual thing. So let's just call it "really, really, really sad".
A friend of mine that I knew exclusively online did something for me. She set up a website where I could go every time I felt down, to remind me that I was, in fact, awesome.
Every year since then, she has continued to renew it.
She just did it again, and I'm hoping to justify the existence, and increase the traffic a little by posting about it here and hoping some people decide to click on the link to see for themselves. It's garyisawesome.com
That's right. Gary is Awesome dot com. It exists, and it's *about me*.
That will never cease to make me smile.
Speaking of making me smile - seeing you post your entries: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/764463.html that's also a good thing.
If you are having difficulties, your personal "awesome" link is at http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/764710.html
