Chris Evans is the best Chris and just because some of y’all voted Pine in instead means NOTHING TO ME. I DO WHAT I WANT. Well, I do what I want until we have a day like today. A day where John McCain left a hospital where he was undergoing treatment (with his wealth and the health care we provide for him footing the bill) for brain cancer so he could vote to allow Republicans to begin destroying the Affordable Care Act.

It’s tough to make my brain think that this will all turn out fine in the end. It’s tough to think about anything that isn’t frilly, idiotic, fun times wrapped in SQUIRREL!

Chris Evans is right there with those of us that suffer from anxiety. He’s openly discussed his social anxiety in the past and continues to discuss how it impacts his life as an actor and human person. Evans talks about what he would tell his twelve-year-old self in this clip from Becoming (2012):

Evans may be talking about movie roles, but his larger point applies to everyone suffering anxiety. We don’t know how we will react to different events in our lives, but we can try to quiet our brains in any way that we can. We can read books. We can read websites. We can watch movies. We can try to paint the dog’s toenails. So today, on a day where we are once again betrayed by the people that are supposed to work for us, let’s try to shush our brains and find the light at the end of the tunnel.
