The opposite of depression is not happiness, but vitality, and it was vitality that seemed to seep away from me in that moment. Everything there was to do seemed like too much work. I would come home and I would see the red light flashing on my answering machine, and instead of being thrilled to hear from my friends, I would think, “What a lot of people that is to have to call back.” Or I would decide I should have lunch, and then I would think, but I’d have to get the food out and put it on a plate and cut it up and chew it and swallow it, and it felt to me like the Stations of the Cross.
And one of the things that often gets lost in discussions of depression is that you know it’s ridiculous. You know it’s ridiculous while you’re experiencing it. You know that most people manage to listen to their messages and eat lunch and organize themselves to take a shower and go out the front door and that it’s not a big deal, and yet you are nonetheless in its grip and you are unable to figure out any way around it.— Andrew Solomon, Depression - The Secret We Share, TED talks (via feigenbaumsworld)

Ezra Koenig on the 86th Academy Awards red carpet
aww thanx for the question anon
well to be perfectly honestly i haven’t even seen wolf of wall street yet and i very very shamefully admit i haven’t seen a good chunk of the films/performances nominated this year (last year?) so i can’t really offer an opinion. so i should just shut up.
but as much as i love leo as an actor i was never truly bothered by the fact that he has never won one. there’s a post going around about why the whole “leo not winning an oscar” meme is just tiring & full of shit and i pretty much agree with everything said in it.
Ugh that somewhere in time theme always kills me
