K, so remember when Adam Goldman made that brilliant show The Outs and everyone lost their shit because it was so, so amazing? Well, he’s back at it again with Whatever This Is—a show that follows two production assistants who are working every terrible job imaginable, struggling to make ends meet in NYC. Watch the first episode here and if you’re loving it, you still have a few days to donate to their Kickstarter. Do it. Donate so the show can get made and we can all have lots and lots of happy feelings.
Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.
“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
