Been in a weird headspace at the start of this year, but now feels like the time to throw down the proverbial gauntlet and issue a mission statement of sorts for 2019: my 32nd b-day was December 1st, which means that the days of childish yore and game playing are far behind me, but also serves as a reminder of what it took to get here. Like many of you who’ve endured similar obstacles, I've survived (among other things) physical and sexual abuse in my childhood, a litany of mental issues, and an apparently never-ending heap of taunting and idiocy about my identity and the way I look. While I'm certainly not suggesting that I deserve a medal or anything for this - again, I'm all too aware of how many of you have gone through similar things - please know that achieving what small bits of sanity and confidence I possess has taken a LOT of hard fucking work, a LOT of determination, and a LOT of looking at myself in the mirror, finally seeing the forest for the trees, and realizing what a terrible person I was being to both myself and those around me. As a result? I can't do fake. I can't put on masks, nor can I give you anything other than the truest form of myself these days. I say what I mean, and I mean what I say, and frankly, learning to speak my piece has been THE best weapon I've gained in striking back against a world that repeatedly proves itself to be cold and unforgiving. & with each passing year, I’ve learned how to get a little stronger, a little more forthright, and a little more comfortable in my own skin. Please: do not step to me if you don't want to hear my honest opinion on a given subject; do not step to me if you aren't prepared to deal with genuine authenticity. These days, I'm about as open and as real as what you see before you...which is to say that I'm still trying my absolute best to keep being incomparably, unfuckwittably real. AND AS ALWAYS, feel free to kiss my lil tushy and walk on by if any of that bothers you. Toodles! You aren’t stopping MY shine, Satan.
