Half girl, half robot, half ravioli
After 10 years, I finally met Gerard Way.
Holy hell. What a dream come true!!
I gave him a bunch of printouts of the art I’ve made for him, and I got a nice big hug.
Incredible concert, incredible man.
Can’t wait to do it all again on Thursday!
My grandma passed away last night.
For the last 20 years or so, she had been affected by Alzheimer’s. It started out as dementia, but fully escalated into Alzheimer’s about 10 years ago. Her condition rapidly declined within the last 6-8 years, yet it wasn’t until 2011 that my grandpa decided to put her in a nursing home that specialized in caring for sufferers of the disease. He spent many, many years taking care of her himself, which was a full-time job. He wouldn’t accept help as he felt it was his duty as her husband to care for her.
He visited her every day in that home and ate lunch with her, even after she lost the ability to speak.
Yesterday we got the news that she had stopped eating and drinking and had fallen unconscious, and this morning we got the call about her passing.
Her passing is a relief because we all lost the real her a long time ago. The person walking around wasn’t my grandma.
Now she can be free and be the wonderful, beautiful, fantastic person we all remember her being. It was so cruel for the disease to draw things out as long as it did. She didn’t deserve such a horrible treatment.
My grandpa is in deep mourning, though. To him, she was still here as long as her body was here. Now that she’s gone, he feels completely lost.
Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. He needs a lot of support throughout this.
Popped back on to get some screencaps and gifs of Gerard from the VyRT thing earlier.
Won’t be staying, though. I really need to detox from the negativity here. I’m feeling better, but I need more time.
I have a heart, a brain, a soul, a presence.
What I say, do, and think matters.
I am not a one-way mirror.
I am a human being.
I am not a wall.
I am a human being.
