depression is when you don’t really care about anything
anxiety is when you care too much about everything
and having both is just like whatHaving both is staying in bed because you don’t want to go to school and then panicking because you don’t want to fail. Having both is wanting to go see your friends so you don’t lose them all, then staying home in bed because you don’t want to make the effort. Having both is insanely hard and sucks to deal with.
"Typecast? Not worried at all. I love playing lesbian characters. If that’s what they wanna typecast me as, fine. Here’s the thing, lesbians are real people. Real women. So the sexuality of the character really doesn’t even matter. What are they doing? What is the role? It’s the person. So I’m not worried one bit. In fact, if this is my niche, I’ll take it."
[apologizing in advance if Aliyah’s character in Citizen Jane isn’t a lesbian. I just know what it’s about, watched the trailer and think there’s an extremely good chance she is.]
I kind of want Gail’s mom to set her up on blind dates with women next season lol. She’ll probably be all, "Dear, I hope you didn’t think being interested in women was going to get you out of this." I’d bet that’s her mother’s thinking. Especially since she blew it with the like the most eligible lesbian in Toronto (now, San Francisco *sigh*). And likely, the first person of her own choosing her mother ever would (or did) approve of her dating.
I didn’t take from what Gail said in 5x09 that her mother didn’t know she was dating a woman. I think Gail’s mother is clearly far too involved in her love life to let that get by her. Especially considering who the woman was. I just took it to mean it was the first dinner since this change in her life happened and first time the whole family would have been meeting Holly.
