I know this is a bit of downer but oh well.
A friend of mine committed suicide. I don't know the details yet, but it's unfortunate. He was a really smart guy and I wish I could've known him better. I wasn't really close to him, but a lot of my other friends were.
It wasn't that surprising, in retrospect. He expressed himself very strongly in his aesthetic. That doesn't make it any less sad, of course. On the contrary, it's far more tragic that he wasn't able to find the kind of help he needed when he was openly vulnerable. I can only hope that he is at peace now. If you believe in prayers, it would be highly appreciated if you could extend some wishes and good vibes in general to his family and best friends. It's really hitting them hard right now.
