It’s a dream come true to be covering the team I grew up watching the most. It’s a greater feeling to cover them when they are among one of the elite teams in the NHL.

Here I am five years removed from graduating college and ten years removed from getting my high school diploma. The Boston Bruins are fresh off their second Stanley Cup Final appearance in three years and have clinched home ice throughout the Stanley Cup Playoffs. I’ll admit, this string of success is something I could never see coming, let alone covering. Part of that thought is because I couldn’t predict the B’s success, but the other part is due to my history with mental illness.

As I’ve documented before, I have suffered from depression and anxiety since my sophomore year in high school. Two years later, my mental illness got so severe, I was hospitalized for it. That time period was easily the darkest moment of my life, but thankfully it also saved my life as I got the proper medication and treatment to move on and eventually graduate high school and begin my journalism studies at Suffolk University to pursue my dreams.

Certainly things have come a long way as I’m about to cover another Stanley Cup Playoff. That isn’t to say things have been perfect.

Its been awhile since I’ve updated this blog, but I figured with 2013 rounding to a close and 2014 just around the corner I figured that this is the perfect time to get back into the swing of things.

Strange to think how far things have come over a span of 12 months. At the end of last year - one of the toughest ones in my life - I was thinking this dark cloud hovering over me had no end in sight. It was a year where I lost several loved ones (including my grandfather) got laid off from my day job, was going nowhere in my search for a full-time gig and of course the ongoing saga with the NHL Lockout, which, at the time had no end in sight.

Twelve months later, I’m still searching for full-time work. On the other hand, things are finally looking up both personally and professionally.

Don’t ever change Rob Ford. Otherwise, Colbert and Stewart wouldn’t have as much fun. No seriously

Men feel the pressures of society just as much as women. Through my internet searches I have come across nothing that encourages body positivity in men. This needs to change.

Please, tell me of the struggles this dude faces as a white male. I’m really interested in hearing about the alternate reality that he inhabits. 

WHAT A DUMBASS POST
CRY HARDER WHITE BOY

Booohooooo who says all girls wanna look like barbie dipshit


Whoa, whoa, whoa. Are you guys honestly saying that just because he’s a man and white? Are you fucking kidding me? You all do realize what you’re technically saying right? You’re pretty much saying that that this guy has no right to be sad because there are people out there who have it worse. I thought that was one of the main things you never tell a person with depression, so why are any of you saying that here?
Seriously, what world do you guys live in? What if a white man abused as a child? What if they were told that they were not good enough by their family and and people around him? Do you think every white guy lives a life where everybody loves them, nobody thinks they’re ugly and they get everything they want by simply asking for it once? You have to be a complete fool to believe that.
Are you trying to tell me that a white person can’t be depressed because he is “privileged over everybody else”? Let me put it to you like this: Let’s say a white man loses his job, is insecure about his body (because maybe he’s not very tall or muscular, which is what society today tells a man he should look like), and has no friends. Now let’s say you have a successful black business woman who makes a lot of money, has a great social life, but also has depression. Which one of these two people has more right to be depressed? The answer: NEITHER!!!! Because depression is not always about how successful you are life or what you have. Depression is feeling that you’re not a good enough person no matter who you are and how hard you try.
All you that contributed to the above commentary should be ashamed of yourselves. There are people out there, include white boys, who hate themselves because of their looks. They will self harm just like anybody else with self hate issues, but none of you care. All you care about is their gender and skin color. I’d hate to see what any of you would say if ever met a cutter that happened to be a white guy. What would you say when if showed you his scars? Would you laugh in his face? What if he told you that he attempted suicide? Would you roll your eyes at him?
None of you are any better than those racist and sexist people you claim to hate so much. You don’t want equality. You want anybody that shares physical similarities with “the oppressor” to feel like shit. You want people who to be looked down upon because of the their race and gender; two things they have no control over. How is that any better than someone belittling a black/hispanic/asian/etc person because of a broad and untrue generalization?
I’ve come to realize this important fact: Tumblr isn’t the safe haven for logical people that so many people want to claim it is. It’s full immature, hypocritical , and ignorant people just like any other website. I don’t care if I lose followers because of this. This has to stop.

^this is probably one of the best things I’ve read. 

The last paragraph. If I wasn’t on mobile I’d bold the everliving Hell out of it for emphasis.

bold-ed the last bit for person above

Certainly tired of everyone screaming “white privilege.” No my problems aren’t the SAME, but that doesn’t make them invalid or wrong.
