Is anybody else journaling about Robin Williams today? I'm so fucking sad. I'm watching Dead Poets Society tonight and writing about how much sadder the world will be without Robin in it. I know this isn't strictly about journaling but I had to talk to someone about it.

I'm watching it right now. Him as Mr. Keating never fails to make me smile or think. It's such a good film. But then the ending is sad and resonates (I won't spoil it for you, but please get it an watch it asap).

Thank you for commenting. My husband and I are heartbroken and having a tough evening.

*looks down at journal page*
Yup, I have about a page and a half about him :(
I'm still in shock.

I wrote a eulogy for him and glued in some movie covers, and of course covered my shock of him having committed suicide. He gave so much happiness that he had none left for himself and I'm just... devastated. I'm glad we could bond over this, Miss Berry.

Me too.
I think I nearly dropped my phone when I read it, it just didn't seem real. I remember watching Flubber and Mrs Doubtfire when I was on chemo and it would make us all laugh... Kids in the cancer ward laughing. Because of him. He gave so much joy.

I'll be doing the same. :/
I just knew today was going to be a bad day when I woke up this morning.

I was having a good day and then this- it just completely fucked me up. I'm a mess and I'm completely heartbroken. I've never been sad over the death of a celebrity but this has shaken me to the core.

A lot of us feel that way. It's so sad to get older and see my childhood heroes cease to exist. It hurts in a way I've never felt pain before. It's a different kind of loss than I've experienced.

I'm having a really hard time with it. I suffer from depression and anxiety too and I know what he was feeling, or at least have some idea of how horrible it is. I just hope he is at peace now.

It's awful. We think that oh, poor rich white guy with all the fans in the world couldn't find happiness but that just goes to show you that money can't buy happiness... or even contentedness.

I talked about it in a VEDA (Vlog Every Day [in] August) video that I made yesterday and just now I am making note of his death in my paper journal. It's devastating, truly.

Can you link us to your youtube account? :)

Sure!

My video for today (which isn't up yet) has more thoughts about his death at the end of the video (should be up after midnight EST) - I'm taking it pretty hard.

I mentioned it in my entry today, I found out about him at work and seemed to be the only person who hadn't heard yet.

I'm also going to paste in this photo I saw on tumblr with the caption it had ("Robin, you're free").

Yesterday I was listening to the radio and I was deliberating about whether to go to the library (was kinda sick). then I heard it and I wrote "I think Robin Williams killed himself," and that I would go after all, to google this. But I was too sick.

It's really awful to think that he was that depressed. Seemed like he loved making people laugh.

(& lest my icon seem disrespectful, it's just one that reminded me of him in Mork and Mindy, when he'd try to get eggs to fly).

I wrote about three pages about him. His death has hit me harder than almost any other celebrity death. His movies were a big part of my childhood.
