Ugh. 2015 was depressing with personally-known deaths, now 2016 sucks with deaths of celebrities I like. :(

Rest in Peace Mr. Rickman. (Cancer sucks!)

There's no way I'm ever going to remember the guy as any character other than Severus Snape. Sad to think that he's gone now.

It makes me sad to think how many distinguished actors will only be known to the younger generations for acting in glitzy productions of mediocre fantasy.

Maybe we could call it Obi-Wan Syndrome.

Wow, ok. I figured the death of David Bowie might have bought us some cosmic leniency in terms of beloved celebrity deaths. Apparently not.

Rest in peace, Alan Rickman. The Harry Potter movies would have been sorely worse off with anyone else playing Snape.

RIP David Bowie. Admittedly I'm only familiar with one of your songs, but it was damn good. You will be missed.

I learned in psychology class that thinking of life in terms of good or bad days or years is a great way to lead a depressing life. "We don't remember days, we remember moments" is a good thing to remember and a good attitude to have.
