I've quietly moved from expecting a 600-700 yard season from him and expecting a Kenan Allen Rookie type season from him.
This is preseason hype. It's easy to feel that way but give this guy time to grow. I wanna feel that way too but it's wayyyy to early. Need to see more of him and cam. I'd temper expectations but still be excited about the possibilities
yea kent island is a cool little place. right over the bridge to annapolis, right there to d.c/baltimore, two hours from philly.
that week i spent there was during sandy. one of the few times in my life where i actually said i might die to myself. me and my buddy were stupid enough to go outside drunk as hell and venture. i've done some very stupid things in my life but that took the cake. the winds were so strong and debris was flying around i can't even begin to describe it.
My mothers side is prone to depression. My mother has been on anti depressants for over 20 years. And I unfortunately have that imbalance. I've found ways to stay off meds and keep focused and enjoy life and that's by keeping my mind and body busy.
Some of you may have read the thread about me living in a cabin in the woods for about 8 months by myself and it was a big test for me. Long periods of isolation where it was up to me to not curl up and feel sorry for myself, even though the isolation was self induced. I came out of those woods and back into society a different person and with a different mindset on life. It took a hell of a lot of willpower to start over from scratch. I wrote a lot, played the guitar till ungodly hours at full volume, listened to music and watched movies that inspired me.
I broke up some of that isolation by traveling the east coast and some western parts of the country living out of my car. I people watched a ton. I looked at every seemingly happy person and wondered how they got there. I talked to a lot of people about life. Visited an old college buddy who was two weeks into withdrawal from heroin and cocaine and we talked the entire night in key west about life and what we wanted from it.
In all honesty I was probably depressed before I quit my job and moved to that cabin. I was just generally unhappy with what I was doing and what I had become. Maybe it was more of a midtwenties crisis.
It's something that I have to keep in check from time to time. But I've found exercising, staying mentally active(huddle, reading, movies, current events (even if those are depressing too lol)) and going back out into the wilderness (hiking, camping) really help my mood and overall mindset on life. Find your passion(s). do what makes you happy and most importantly find people that share those things in common with you. Easier said then done though, right?
This forum is already a better place without that panda poster
Oh and he looks like a zach galfianakas inbred brother that should have had a bit part in "the campaign" so surprisingly enough he actually has someone that wants his dick inside them. Wow. Life is a crazy trip.
totally agreed about twitter and facebook. people look to others to see how they are "supposed" to respond things. its group think on a large scale. people don't know how to think for themselves. i think it takes away individuality. life becomes something you try to get approval from the masses for and you have to become like everyone else to get that.
bingo. feeds into narcissism. this site has a bit of that though but at the same time some anonymity. its human nature to want to feel like you belong.
oh and good luck tomorrow with the baby. my sister is due for her second one in october. hopefully i don't have my first until i'm in my 30s. pleeeeease god pleeease. lol
It's similar to why the reaction to John Lennon or Jimi Hendrix or jonny winter's recent death had a profound impact on people. People remembered times of happiness, joy, pain, sadness and how those people made them forget about it, or made them pinpoint that feeling and helped them move on , or how they deeply connected with another person because of it. They bore their souls to us and in return we felt something or like Rayzor said actually changed the path for the better . People inspire people.
I think the age of twitter/Facebook has brought about disingenuousness but those feelings are still there in some.
without any disrespect towards RW, the issues he dealt with, or anyone mourning him, it's a foreign experience to me to be personally emotionally affected by the death of a celebrity. i've never understood it.
i am abstractly sad, but that's all -- the posts on here and on social media about being distraught, in tears, sitting stunned, etc. don't really connect with me.
i know what you are saying but....
it's weird. i have memories of watching robins stand up with my friends, smoking pot, and really connecting with each other through laughter. it's one of those moments that was facilitated BY robin's performance.
watching good will hunting with my dad and him opening up to me about his hard family life when he was a kid.
all of these things were facilitated through these performers and i suspect a lot of people have had similar experiences to that.
I get that i don't know this person, and there is definitely an over-the-top reaction that frash was talking about. but for me these actors/performers whatever you wanna call them were apart of my life and apart of memories that were made. it is insanely weird to think about it like that but it's true for a ton of people. ill never forget when james gandolfini died it was the first time in my life where i actually felt physically emotional by a celebrities death because of all the times i shared with my family on christmas morning/afternoon watching an entire season of the sopranos and all of us bonding. It's that kind of thing with robin.
i grew up watching aladdin and mrs doubtfire with my sister and our friends. and us singing along to songs and all of that. it's very, very strange and i recognize that but memories were helped formed from these people that i have never met or know personally. And i think that is kind of the power of celebrity, good or bad.
It was him and jim carrey growing up. And when I got older all his dramatic roles and comedy specials. Super talented guy. Like floppin said his special in New York is still one of the funniest stand ups I've ever seen.
What dreams may come, good will hunting, mrs doubtfire are still some of my favorites.
Celebrity deaths are weird because you feel like you know that person. You might have shared special times with friends and families watching these people perform. It's like when James gandolfini died, it's a punch in the gut and that's what I'm feeling now with robin.
