Have missed Jared on social media lately. So it's awesome to see him posting again.

He live tweeted the west coast feed of 12x14 and then posted this on FB this morning:

The love he has for his AKF campaign still (and always will) tugs at my heartstrings. Even when he doesn't have an active campaign going on, you can tell it's never far from his mind or heart.

He also posted this gorgeous pic welcoming Genevieve to Instagram:

Love this vid so much. Jared's slow realization of what's happening, the meaning and significance of the tealight candles, his various emotions - surprise, tears, amazement, how he can barely express what he's feeling. It still brings a tear to my eye and a lump in my throat no matter how many times I watch it.

Oh gosh, so adorable, funny, cheeky and emotional. Jared's 1st lot of Facebook vids for the start of his amazing Always Keep Fighting campaign.

LOL. Playing hookey on set

My heart is broken and my soul is crying for all of you.

Take care of each other.

Stay safe and strong.

So we know that Jared will announce something SUPER cool on Live with Kelly on Monday morning and I'm hoping and praying that this will be his surprise!

I'm only missing one of his #AKF shirts, #4 so am over the moon at the chance to be able to purchase it and complete my collection.

Up #1 was definitely the return of SPN and our boys knocked it out of the park. Watched it with [livejournal.com profile] ratfan and loved it so, so much. What an awesome season opener, emotional and gripping and scary.

What a rollercoaster of a day!!!! Went from the depths of utter despair to feeling like I was walking on pure sunshine in only a couple of hours.

Big changes this week. Rang up about an add in the Saturday paper from a courier company needing drivers. Pretty much secured the position during my inquiry phone call on Monday. HR guy (Graeme) I was speaking to said the add did specify previous experience in the transport industry, asked me how much I had and when I replied 20 years, he responded with "Oh, is that all?" in a very light-hearted tone and I was rather positive that the job was mine.

Getting into the sorting and packing this week. Mostly finished the library room, only 2 shelves out of 5 full to over-flowing bookcases left to be packed. Have culled about 1/3 of my collection to be (hopefully) sold to a 2nd hand bookshop chain. Am keeping too many, I know a lot more should go but I just can't seem to do it. I love my books, even though I know I won't read many of them again.

Decluttering is going really well. Feels good to get rid of a lot of junk and rubbish. Took two car loads to the tip's recycling area, 2 old TV's, fridge, 2 microwaves and a few broken and outdated vcr's/dvd players. Still have another free tip pass from the council if I need it but am hoping everything else will fit in the big bulk bin they are providing. But that won't be delivered til just a couple of days before I move.

Removal company booked for 9am. As it's the same morning I'm signing the lease, and I'm working from 4pm that day have asked my dad and step mom to come over and supervise while I'm out. I trust them to keep an eye on things and make sure the removalists do a professional job. Hopefully we can get everything loaded and moved in a couple of hours and with Dad's 4wd, we should be able to fit all the smaller items in our 2 vehicles. Means EVERYTHING will have to be packed by the Wed night and I mean EVERYTHING, clothes, dishes, toiletries, pantry, fridge and freezer cleaned out, washer and drier disconnected, TV's/dvd's/dvr's, computer/printer/modem all unplugged and boxed up. Luckily my bed is just a ensemble mattress in a timber frame that comes apart within minutes. So can take that apart and still sleep on the mattress.

Power company notified. It went better than I'd thought as I still owe the current bill (and can't afford to pay it in full before June 9th with all the moving expenses to be dealt with) and thought they wouldn't connect the new place with that money outstanding. The woman I dealt with was pretty good (despite me being frustrated by the endless red-tape) and has given me an extension until the middle of July, giving me a little bit of breathing space. She still wants me to pay anything I can off the bill but I'm not in any danger of having power disconnected here or not connected at the new house.

Transferring my Internet account is turning into a game of dominos. I can't get mine transferred until my friend vacates the property on the 2nd because it will cut off her internet service. She can't transfer hers until the outgoing tenant at her new place disconnects theirs. So have to ring back on the 3rd and get the transfer started then. Hoping it won't take the 10-14 days quoted but I will be able to cope without internet for a few days. Have a fairly good data plan on my mobile phone so I can still check FB, twitter and LJ. Luckily, most of my shows go on hiatus this week and of those still airing I can wait a week or to download without dying. Maybe I'll take advantage of being off the 'net to catch up on writing. Am really missing working on my fics.

Called a friend last night to ask if she could come over on Sat to help keep me company while I pack, maybe even help a little herself, she says fine, happy to help. Tell her "Great, and thanks, will pick you up after work Sat morning".

Get a text this morning (Fri) saying she's been in bed with a bad back for last 2 days so wants to rest over the weekend and won't be coming over. 2 days, huh?? Why not mention THAT on the phone last night??? Seems to me she just changed her mind and the back pain is just an excuse not to say, "Nah, don't wanna help."

And that is why I'm so reluctant to ask for help or even support from those near me. Have been let down too many times by her (and others) pulling out at the last minute. Easiest just to do everything myself.

Still feeling like crap, but haven't shed tears since the other night, so I suppose that's progress, right??

It's a beautiful day outside, so I'm going to take Sam for walkies, pick up some things at the supermarket on the way home and then tackle the task of sorting and packing the 4 bookcases in my library.

Starting with the best first....

Season 12 is official. We are getting a fucking SEASON 12 of our amazing little show that could!!! I couldn't be happier at this wonderful news. Even though I was pretty certain it was going to happen, it's great to get official confirmation. I'm am in no way ready to say goodbye to the boys, to Baby, to the whole SPN 'verse.

Even better I heard it from Jared himself during his latest and oh-so adorable FB livestream.

And he looks so delighted at the news as well! This was another amazing chat with Jared that gets me all gooey inside and grinning like an idiot. Oh and when he took off his beanie and shook his hair out I think I may have died for a few seconds.

The timing couldn't have been better as I was on a midnight-8am shift at work and having the shittiest shift I can ever remember. Too many rude, arrogant, stoned customers making my life hell and to top it off, one of them got pissed when I wouldn't (couldn't) do what he wanted and he smashed his foot into the windscreen of my car (which is parked next to the night-pay window), shattering it. We've got him on camera and I'll be putting in a police report but as I don't think he can be identified (he came to the petrol station on foot, not in a car) I doubt anything will happen.

Then five minutes later while I'm still majorly pissed off and shooting steam out of my ears, I get notification that Jared is about to livestream and get this huge smile on my face. Seeing his beautiful face, hearing his hearfelt words about Show and AKF and how he thanks us really helped me get through the last 4 hours of my shift without killing someone, getting fired or both.

And I have the best brother in the world. When I rang him and explained about the windscreen and that I couldn't afford to get it replaced til late next week, meaning I wouldn't have the car til then and have to rely on public transport to get to and from work, he agreed to pay for it ($360!!!!) and I'll pay him back in instalments from my next few pays. Love you, bro!!!!

Welcome back, boys!!!!

It's almost as disturbing as the googly eyed vid they did for AKF2 that Jensen posted:

Hey Jared Padalecki...I'll see your 1st outtake and raise you a second. And for all of you who are joining the fight at represent.com/JaredJensen we are humbled and amazed. Let's keep it up.

Saw this on Tumblr thanks to Safa's tweet:


It’s weirdly uplifting that AKF 5 doesn’t have a campaign goal to meet. Every other campaign has absolutely hit it out of the park, and Jared has so much confidence that we can do it again. Plus, there’s just something really heartening about getting to the checkout page and seeing the words “your shirt will be printed when the campaign is successful.”

Not if. When.

Maybe you’re not doing so great right now, and maybe it’s hard to love yourself and to keep fighting- and maybe I’m reading into this too much- but getting better? Finding the light at the end of that tunnel, or the thing that’s worth fighting for, or whatever makes it that little bit easier to love yourself? This feels like Jared saying that it will happen. You will get there, and you will be okay.

It’s not an if. It’s a when.

Another reason I so look forward to Jared's AKF campaigns is he posts almost daily pics and vids on FB, Twitter and Instagram.

Jared on instagram: The same pose in the same spot, exactly 1 year on...... Mind-blowing that even after 5 campaigns you guys are still supporting #AKF more than ever, with our biggest first 24 hours of sales on represent.com/Jared (link in bio) yet !!
vyperdd: (AKFcandle)
March 3rd was the 1 year anniversary of Jared's wonderful Always Keep Fighting campaign. For a solid 24 hours my TL on Twitter was extra full of love and appreciation for Jared and everything he has done to shine a spotlight on depression and other mental health issues. Check out the #1YearOfAKF tag for all the love from so many fans all around the world.

Jared went live on FB to celebrate AKF's 1st birthday and launch AKF5 and it's probably one of my favourite vids he's done so far. Jared was so emotionally open that I was in tears. He actually had to compose himself at the beginning, taking a few seconds and saying "I'm a professional, I'm supposed to be able to do this," showing us a side of himself we very rarely get to see. In interviews and at cons, Jared is always so upbeat and assured and very rarely at a loss for words, almost hyper at times and I love that part of him. But what I think I love even more is being given a very precious glimpse of Jared that perhaps only his family and close friends get to witness. That he is willing enough to show us this side tells me that he also thinks SPNFamily is so much more than just a catch-phrase and hash-tag.

It's also why I've connected so deeply to his AKF campaign. With Jared personally affected by the very issues he's talking about, it feels very personal and intimate. He has touched my heart in ways I never thought possible and for that I will be forever grateful to him and his wonderful campaign.

Goin live to announce some awesome stuff!#AKFrepresent.com/jared

Jared posted this vid to his facebook page:

I work crazy hours, even when I’m home ! Best part about being in Austin? Picking up the kiddos!Thank goodness for McDonald's #AllDayBreakfast, otherwise I’d never fit in breakfast! #ad http://bit.ly/1mnGWe7

Posted by Jared Padalecki on Tuesday, February 16, 2016

and there are already negative comments about him "selling out" and "only doing it for the money", plus criticizing that it's for McDonalds and not something healthier, both in the comments on his Facebook and elsewhere (LJ, twitter. I don't do tumblr but I can imagine it's happening there as well). I wish people wouldn't always think the worse especially when they don't have all the information as to why Jared is doing it or how he benefits. For all we know he may very well be donating any money McDonalds is paying him to one of the numerous charities he supports.

Guess after the recent YANA fiasco (yes, Jared/AKF is involved but in a totally invisible way :-/ ) I'm especially sensitive at the moment when it comes to Jared. Just wish everyone remembered the saying I grew up with: If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

Hey my SPN flisties -

The Always Keep Fighting campaign has been amazing, but hearing all those stories can really take a toll as mentioned in this tumblr post from VanCon.

"So we were waiting in line for Jared’s auto when someone went up to him and told him a story that had him hugging her for a long time and when she’d gone he got mega-teary eyed and had to actually leave the auto table to compose himself. At this point Jensen had just finished and walked over to where Jared was behind the semi-opaque curtain (right next to us) and after some murmurings gave him a huge hug and a reassuring ‘you can do it brother, there’s not that many people left out there’ HONESTLY I nearly died on the spot."


So Winchesterwoman over on twitter and I came up with this campaign.

Feel free to tweet, tumblr, repost, reblog - anything to get the word out. Let's show our boys some love.

MTV source article.

Feeling Overwhelmed By Life? Jared Padalecki Has Some Important Advice For You

The "Supernatural" star recently took some time for himself.

After taking some much-needed time for himself, Jared Padalecki is back and feeling better than ever.

The actor joined his fellow former Stars Hollow residents for the long-awaited “Gilmore Girls” reunion at the ATX Television Festival this past weekend, and he was all smiles.

Padalecki scared “Supernatural” fans last month when he suddenly canceled appearances at fan conventions and tweeted, “I need all the love I can get right now.” But the 32-year-old just needed to recharge after a long season away from his family.

MTV News caught up with Padalecki ahead of the big “Gilmore Girls” reunion, and he had some important advice for others who might also be feeling stretched too thin.

“Try and remember to shift gears,” he said. “That’s one of things I had to learn. It doesn’t mean that you have to live the simple life, but the life lived with just your friends and family is a great life.”

“Don’t get caught up trying to think you’re supposed to do more, or to think you’re supposed to please everybody,” he added. “Take care of yourself.”

Earlier this year, Padalecki launched his “Always Keep Fighting” t-shirt campaign through Represent.com to benefit nonprofit organization To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA), which supports people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. It’s a passion project for the actor, who’s been open about his own clinical depression.

“One of the things I learned from unplugging is that if you’re not 100 percent, you can’t give 100 percent,” Padalecki said. “So take the time to make sure you’re 100 percent.”

Nicely said, Jared. We couldn’t agree more.

This whole campaign is so amazing I want to document it here in all it's glory.

Can our boys possibly be any more awesome, adorable or insane????
