So, I work in an assisted living center. More specifically I work in the dining room as a server. I worked there for a few months now and I’ve seen residents come and go. They have to go to the hospital or die, but in the grand scheme of things, it’s all pretty abstract. Their deaths don’t really impact me because they die when I’m not there. I come into work and this person has died or that person has been hospitalized and I feel bad, but it’s all a bit abstract.
Today I was resetting my tables between breakfast and lunch when all of a sudden all of these EMT people come down the hallway, passed the dining room and to a resident’s room. My coworker and I were curious about what happened and who was hurt. It turned out that one of my favorite residents had passed away. And it was the weirdest thing too because we had just seen him. He had come down to the dining room for breakfast just this morning. And now, he won’t ever be back. There’s a sense of finality. And I was in the building when it happened.
It makes his death less abstract for sure, but there’s still a sense that it might not have happened. I keep wondering why him? Why today? Why then? Why was I put on this path to be there when it happened?
Obviously these are questions that I can’t answer now. Maybe not ever. But it is a reality check about the suddenness of death. How death is just a part of the cycle of life. I don’t know. It’s just been kind of a strange day.

I’m sorry you were not truly loved and that it made you cruel.

I want to be able to fill this jar up as much as possible. I want to prove that they really aren’t just people on the internet. They have done more than just entertain. They have truly helped people.
Okay, to everyone saying that I’m going to need a big jar. Don’t worry, I have one. There are currently 1270 urls in this jar.

The next time there’s an awkward silence, try whispering, “Did you forget your line?”

I love dresses because they’re so lazy and require such little effort yet when you wear them people think you actually attempted to look nice

DON’T PLAY THIS YET.
Okay so I’m trying to prove a point to my brother. So imagine your wedding day, getting married to the man/woman of your dreams. And you’re getting ready to walk down the aisle. Only instead of the traditional Wedding March, this starts to play. (Go ahead and play it.) Reblog if this would not be the perfect song as you walk down the aisle.
I’m sat here with the biggest smile on my face. Thank you for making this a thing
