I want to start by thanking you all SO MUCH for all of your wonderfully supportive thoughts and comments on my last post. That meant more to me than I can ever say and it was so unexpected. Not that it should have been. It was a gentle reminder of how amazing of a community this really is and how absolutely wonderful you guys are and how lucky I am to be able to call all of you friends.
SO! I am now an openly gay man with my mom! After 30 years of life I can finally say that and it feels so damn incredible. It was a bit anticlimatic to be honest, and I am sooooo thankful for that, lol. My mom's response was basically that she loves me for the person that I am and that she wants me to be happy. Understandably, I think she needs some time to soak everything in. I didn't only come out to her, but also told her I'm in a year and a half long relationship and that we're moving in together shortly. So it really was a lot to handle and a lot to take in. But it went better than I ever could've hoped for and I feel more at peace than I have in a long damn time. No more hiding who I am :) It's an amazing feeling.
It's going to be easier to move on with my life now and get BACK to normal life. Which hopefully means getting back to reading and back to blogging regularly again!! I haven't finished a book all month. Pathetic :/ Still really enjoying The Onion Girl and Hemlock Grove...just chipping away at them slowwwwly.
You know what I've been in the mood for recently though? A good tear jerker novel. Like can't catch your breath, big ugly sobs tear jerker. Either that or a book that makes you laugh out loud embarrassingly in public. I think you get the idea...I'm looking for a book that is heavy on the emotion...that's heartfelt and real. Suggestions would be MUCH MUCH MUCH appreciated!!!! And if you can somehow make that criteria fit into the Once Upon a Time challenge that would be fantastic :p Though it totally doesn't have to.
Anyway, how have YOU guys been???
