I made a series of Calming Bunnies (based off of the Calming Manatee meme) for my friend Gab, who isn’t a huge fan of manatees!
We can always use more bunnies, I think.

I’M SORRY, TIFFANY. D:
In memory of Robert Malkovsky.
I love you, Mal.
My heart was shattered today. Absolutely shattered.
I never had Mal as a teacher and I didn’t have any wonderful stories to share, so I didn’t make a facebook status. However, I desperately needed somewhere to process my thoughts…and so, sorry to return to tumblr on such a somber note, but hello.
I have spent quite a while reading people’s facebook statuses while awkwardly crying in the library. I’m not an extremely emotional person, but reading the many ways that Mal has truly left his mark on this world and thinking about how great of a man he was is really getting to me. Mal always made students happy—whether it was drawing unicorns on the board while Mr. Sam was gone, directing parking traffic with his smile and cane, or letting us stay at his cabin for Science Olympiad+Envirothon bonding. I may have only said a maximum of 10 sentences to him, but his persona and impact extend way past direct contact—talk about a ripple effect. Mal was just such a CHARACTER. He made Penncrest, Penncrest. He lived the life he wanted. His care for students and desire to make an impact are just so admirable and inspiring. He really did better the lives of everyone he knew, and isn’t THAT the point of living?
Yesterday, my roommate asked me what my overall, big-picture goal in life was. I didn’t really know what to say. Maybe my goal is to be like Mal and better the lives of everyone I know.
Thank you, Mal, for reminding me about how to live life and to appreciate the people in it. You are changing lives, even now.
