I never take advantage of the free Comic Con happenings even though I’m a San Diego native, but now that I live fairly close to the action I’m gonna try to do stuff.
Free Let’s Be Cops screening with Damon Wayans Jr. and Rob Riggle on Friday? COOL!

Sorry i didn’t answer earlier I woke up early and helped my sister register for classes then went back to sleep.
5: Who was your favorite teacher in high school and why?
Hm, high school was a weird time for me. It was the height of my anxiety problems and I stayed home from school A LOT. I even did independent study for a while, meaning I stayed home and did work alone. Anyway.From the time I spent as an actual high school student I loved my English teacher Mr. Xander. He taught us about poetry by using music videos. WE watched Jeremy by Pearl Jam and picked apart the symbolism, that was pretty cool and it taught me about high and low art, that you don’t have to be proper to create something beautiful. That everyday people can create poetry too and it’s still valid.
41: When was the last time you got really really happy and why?
Man, this is hard because I don’t think I’ve been very happy lately. I think the last time I was REALLY happy was when my sisters and I moved into our new apartment. It felt like such a weight off my shoulders to be free and have something that’s my own (again). It’s just been hard since moving because I haven’t been able to get a new job. (actually leaving my last job in march was another REally really happy times.) But it still feels good to look around and know this is mine I have control over this space.
"When the scientists of the future show up at my house with robot eyes and they tell me to try them on, I will tell the scientists to screw off, because I do not want to see a world without him.”
really a written part of The Fault in Our Stars?
because like that’s the worst
most contrived writing.
Also I personally hate “i can’t live without you” narratives or the romancing of death/dying.
