The Deep and Dark world of Depression

Super Pinay Mom

e1c9846e3a4b4193451427080de1ead4--art-sketches-art-techniquesSadness and Loneliness are normal emotions. We all feel sad and feel blue but it doesn’t linger. Usually, it will away after few days or weeks.  Depression is something different, It’s a period of overwhelming sadness and has a debilitating effect to the overall functioning of a person Depression is one of the most rampant and serious disorder in the society.

Remember Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain made it clear through his music and several interviews that he was battling internal demons, which is depression.

How about our favorite comedian Robin Williams, who would have thought that behind the contagious smile and laughter, lies a sad and dying depress man. Nobody knows that he is suffering from manic depression throughout his life.

What about  Chester Bennington who was even caught video of her late  laughing with his family just hours before he took his own life.

THE UNIQUE BLOGGER AWARD


It’ been a while since I’ve done awards post but since I’ve been busy these past couple of days and I can’t think of anything to write about, let’s do this! 

Thank you to Crystal of  Et Tu, World? for nominating me for this award and check out her blog as well. 

Part of the rules for accepting this award is to answer the questions the nominator has given. Here are my answers to Crystal’s questions:

1. What is your favorite type of weather and why?

I am a pluviophile. I really like when it’s raining and I actually wrote a post about it read it here.

2. If the world was ending and you could save one thing (assuming all of your loved ones are safe) what would it be?

When I first read the question the trees are the first one I could think of to save, we need a clean air to breathe assuming that everything is completely gone. But that’s from an idealistic perspective, in reality maybe I won’t even save something, maybe I won’t even save myself when the world ends lol.

3. Where is your favorite place in the world?

I’ve never really been around the world to have a favorite place but if I wanted to go somewhere I really wanted to see New York and London.

4. Do you have a pet and if not, do you want one?

We currently have three rabbits right now and we’ve had cats before and I wanted to have a cat again. I’ve always wanted to have a cat, I just love how cuddly they are. 

5. What inspires you to blog?

What inspires me to blog is life itself and to write stories about life to vent it out and share it with others. The idea of writing for me is just so relaxing, I get to have an outlet that suits me at the same time I get to share it with people that might be thinking and feeling the same way. The bloggers in this community inspire me as well, the way other bloggers show their creativity and their personality is amazing. 


When I first got my “blogging award” I was really honored to be recognized by other bloggers because I never even imagined that anyone would ever read what I write in here let alone nominate my blog for an “award“. Thank you to everyone who’s taking time to read my words. I really appreciate every single one of you. I just really wanted to write with the hope of connecting with others who think and feel the same way as I do, I never expected that I will connect to a lot of people. 

Okay…. enough of that, blogging awards are like chain mails but it’s more than that, it’s about connecting to other bloggers and recognizing their creativity. So, I’m nominating these bloggers for their uniqueness. I hope that they accept this award and find time to recognize other unique bloggers as well:

TAKE AN ACCURATE PERSONALITY TEST | MY RESULTS – DIPLOMAT ADVOCATE

Every one of us is made up of different characteristics that make us who we are. These characteristics form our personality and this personality is our identity. So, how well do you know and understand yourself to have this distinct identity that you have? What is your personality? What are your characteristics? Why do you do a certain thing? Who are you?

I know, so many questions but only one answer– 16 personalities. Recently, me and Fiona from the blog Questions From A Teenager wanted to do a collaboration and out of so many ideas that she had given, taking a personality test appealed to me the most. It’s quite interesting to take such test and the test quite impressed me. Honestly, it’s a bit accurate for me.Read More »

My Favourite TV Show Ever………F.R.I.E.N.D.S

If you’re like me born in the early 90s or even later you would have grew up watching FRIENDS, which for me is hands down the best show ever.

Now if for some reason you were living under a rock from 1994 to 2004 I am going to give you the back story and the reasons why I love FRIENDS & why if you haven’t seen it you MUST.

FRIENDS is based on six characters Ross, Chandler, Joey, Monica, Rachel & Phoebe all in their mid 20s who live in Manhattan & the show revolves around their lives going through break-ups/make-ups, family drama, horrible dates, heartbreak and all the rest that comes with being in your 20s.

After Rachel Green (played by Jennifer Aniston) runs out on her wedding day and seeks out her childhood friend Monica Geller (played by Courtney Cox) they soon become roommates and with that Rachel joins Monica’s social circle, which includes;

Phoebe Buffay (played by Lisa Kudrow) –  who is a masseuse and musician she is that one in the group and all friendship circles have a Phoebe who is a little weird and out there but your friendship circle wouldn’t be complete without her.

Ross Geller (played by David Schwimmer) is Monica’s older brother who works as a paleontologist and had also had a crush on Rachel throughout High School.

Chandler Bing (played by Matthew Perry) Chandler has a sarcastic sense of humor and has a peculiar family history with his mother being a erotic novelist & his father is a gay cross- dressing Las Vegas star.

Joey Tribbiani (played by Matt LeBlanc) is a struggling actor, who loves women but loves food more especially pizza. His famous pick up line “How you doin?” has him never shy of female attention.

The characters each have their own different and unique personalities which are all separately hysterical & endearing and you immediately fall in love with each of them but as a whole they all complement each other which I think is what really made the show what it is. I always felt probably more so now  being older and having re-watched every episode 100 million times (except for the final episode because who wants to re-live the pain of your favourite show ending more than once) that I was going on their journey with them and if something sad or wonderful happened I would be right their having that same emotion that was being shown on the screen through the characters.

FRIENDS was on air for 10 years and to this day is one of the greatest TV shows of all time. I think because it was always so relatable, every friendship group has their Monica, Rachel or Joey and growing up I always looked forward to having my set of FRIENDS to hang out and go through the rollercoaster of life with. No matter what they were going through in the episodes whether it was a new baby, cheating, a divorce, a marriage, break ups/make ups we have all been there and experienced some or all of these things.

For me personally one of my favourite story lines is Ross & Rachel, their love story started from season 1 all the way to the very last episode of season 10. They were on again and off again throughout the whole 10 years of the show and were a couple in the show that despite when they were with other people you always wanted them to get back together cause he’s her lobster.

I think why I love FRIENDS so much and why it’s my go to TV show to put on if I am just hanging out at home etc is because it is so funny and whether I have seen a particular episode 100 times it will still make me laugh my eyes out and I will be happy watching it. No matter if I am having the worse day If i put an episode of Friends on I will instantly feel better.

For me FRIENDS is a 10/10 show and one that everyone should watch but know watching one episode will make you become obsessed with it.

I have included some of my favourite episodes below for your viewing pleasure

Well that’s it for me, I hope you have enjoyed reading my blog post on Joana’s page.
