It may seem odd to you that I'm a bit down upon hearing of the death of Heath Ledger. Sure, famous people have died in my lifetime, but for some reason this hits a bit harder. I think one reason is his age, one year older than me. Another reason is that Heath was one of my first big star crushes. Think Ten Things I Hate About You and A Knight's Tale. Aaaah... And regardless of whether his death was intentional or accidental, I find it very sad and disheartening. What a life it must be to live in the public eye for so long. I can't even imagine how difficult it must be. I will miss you, Heath Ledger.
