My apologies…

25 Jul

Hello again, dreamers!
It’s been a while since I last posted on here, and I am really sorry about that. A lot has happened in the time between this post and the last! The main reason for my absence is a theatre group that I joined in late February that took up like 70% of my time, but I was totally fine with that! It helped me with my dreams, as well as my relationship with God (it’s a Christian organization) and my social awkwardness. I’ve met some amazing people that I can be myself around and not feel weird or anything for doing so. I love them all so much!<;;;3
School and homework took up another 25% of my time. Bleh. Thank god for summer…but it's almost over! It's just horrible. 😦 I am, however, spending my last few weeks of freedom well, as I'm on my way to Florida this very moment! DISNEY WORLD AND HARRY POTTER WORLD WOO. Who ever said I’m too old for Disney? πŸ™‚ Be expecting pictures whenever I get back!
The other 5% of my time was spent at work as a camp counselor, on my trip to England and Scotland (I took a selfie with Harry Potter and Hagrid {not the real ones, of course}), and watching Glee.
Speaking of Glee, I saw Darren Criss in concert in June at the House of Blues in Houston! Seriously I like cried when the concert was over. He was so beautiful and perfect and oh my gosh. I wish I could go back and meet him!
Still relating to Glee, I’m sure most, if not all, of you have heard of the tragic and sudden death of Cory Monteith. If you haven’t heard or have no clue who Cory was, he played one of the main characters on Glee, Finn Hudson. On Saturday, July 13th, Cory was found dead in his hotel room after missing his checkout time. He went out with his friends the night prior, and apparently overdosed on heroin and alcohol, a fatal combination that slows down your breathing and basically suffocates you to death. Cory had a drug problem for most of his life, starting at the age of 12 or 13. He had been trying to kick this addiction for a while and appeared to have been doing well the days close to his death.
Now, before you think ‘Oh, just another celebrity that never had enough and couldn’t be happy with what he had’, Cory was a great man. He was my hero. Although I never had the chance to meet this amazing and inspiring guy, I know he had a truly kind soul. He didn’t hide his addiction like most people, he used it openly to help others that were in the same situation or something like that. He was such a good person and surely didn’t deserve to go out this way.
I found out on Sunday morning. I woke up and the first thing I saw was Glee’s message on Facebook. My heart felt like it was in my throat, and I was just stunned! It didn’t feel real…. That night at around ten, it sort of hit me, and I sat on my bed and cried for a good ten minutes, but then I just went back into a state of shock. The next day, I cried a lot and sang the Healing Song from Tangled, but then I remembered that my life isn’t a Disney movie and I’m not Rapunzel, but I still sang it anyways.
Just in case.
I loved Cory so much. He and Lea made Glee what it is. I know this will probably sound really clichΓ© and weird, but that show changed my life. It taught me that I don’t have to be what society expects to be something special. It taught me to be unique. It taught me to keep dreaming, to never give up, and to always believe in myself. Cory taught me that you don’t have to listen to anyone except for yourself, no matter what. And now, he’s gone….
I salute you, Ryan Murphy.

Well, I suppose that’s enough ranting and updating for one blog post. It was very nice writing to you all again. πŸ™‚

Peace, Love, and Cory,
Cassidy

P.S. I’m going to start something new: weekly songs! This week’s song is Yellow by Coldplay. πŸ™‚

Life’s too short to be serious.
