OH EM GEE, this is so weird I JUST asked [ profile] shiplessheathen this question like YESTERDAY. Creepiness.

ANYWAY in answer to the question, when I'm feeling Super Duper Don't Want to Get Off the Couch Cries At The Drop of a Hat Depressed, I always, without fail, pop in Garden State.

Why? I don't really know. Something about knowing there are other fucked up crazy peeps in the world is strangely comforting?

At one point, I could just rattle this off at random:

"OK, so, sometimes I lie. I mean I'm weird, man, about random stuff too. I don't even know why I do it. It's like... it's like a tick. I mean sometimes I hear myself say something and think, "Wow, that wasn't even remotely true".

Now though, I just shorten it to, "I'm weird, man." It sums things up nicely.

Other inspiring quotes of relevance:

"What do you do? You laugh. I'm not saying I don't cry, but in between, I laugh. And I realize how silly it is to take anything too seriously. Plus, I look forward to a good cry. It feels pretty good." -- True, so true. Sometimes when I'm depresssed I'll purposely watch a super depressing movie like Steel Magnolias or some shit, just so I can cry my eyes out. It like, flushes out my angsts or something. IDEK.

"I'm okay with being unimpressive. I sleep better." -- My slogan.

"By the way, it says "Balls" on your face." - ok not inspiring OR relevant, but it never fails to bring a smile to my face, as I used to text this to a friend as a wake up call. It was my "hi! good morning!" for him.

Andrew Largeman: "Fuck, this hurts so much."
Sam: "I know it hurts. But it's life, and it's real. And sometimes it fucking hurts, but it's life, and it's sorta all we have." -- Ain't that the fucking truth. Preach, girl.

"Good luck exploring the infinite abyss." -- I have a friend who actually drew me a tattoo, encircled with this quote. I haven't got it. Yet.

But yeah. When I just can't get motivated enough to even get my ass up and eat a piece of toast or pee, this is my remedy. This is my go-to movie for laying around and crying like a bitch. Its cathartic, actually. Plus, its just a really fucking awesome movie. I wish I could say that for Zach Braff's other films, haha.

That usually does the trick, but if its not Garden State, I'll pop in some cheesy chick flick. Preferences: Dirty Dancing, She's Having a Baby, Center Stage, Save the Last Dance, or Under The Tuscan Sun.

Shut up, I know my depression doesn't have taste.
