98 year old dobri dobrev, a man who lost his hearing in the second world war, walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes and leather shoes to the city of sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.
though a well known fixture around several of the city’s chruches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying bulgarian monasteries and churches and the utility bills of orphanages, living instead off his monthly state pension of 80 euros.
there’s still good in this world
Callbacks + Parallels, Jim and Pam
I made a new Jim and Pam video following last night’s finale. I wanted to make a video to celebrate the continuity - all those callbacks and running themes, the parallels from seasons one to nine. This is it. To Sing, this video is up to date - and sadly, always will be. I hope you enjoy. Not a bad nine years, huh?
It took me so long to do so many important things. It’s just hard to accept that I spent so many years being less happy than I could have been. Jim was five feet from my desk and it took me four years to get to him. It’d be great if people saw this documentary and learned from my mistakes. Not that I’m a tragic person - I’m really happy, now. But… it would just, just make my heart soar if someone out there saw this and she said to herself “Be strong. Trust yourself. Love yourself. Conquer your fears. Just go after what you want, and act fast, because life just isn’t that long.
Pam Halpert, The Office finale (via sheesidd)
Seriously, Pam’s whole speech thing is me.
It would just make my heart soar if somebody out there saw this and said to herself: Be strong, trust yourself, love yourself, conquer your fears. Just go after what you want. And act fast, cause life just isn’t that long.
Dear cast, crew, and writers of “The Office” -
I feel like my dog just died. She was lovable, fun, and caring presence in my life for ~10 years and now she’s gone. And I had to be in the veterinary room as she went.
I’ve always been a little dramatic, but that’s the best analogy for how I feel…
YES. All of this. My feels.
