Father to gay son note

I have come across the cutest note ever given by a parent to a son. A father overhears his son on the phone with his boyfriend talking about planning to coming out to him. He writes him a cheeky note telling him to plan on bringing OJ after class instead and that he’s know for a while now. I felt my heart melt reading this and specially the cute little P.S. at the end.

In other news, prominent Republican Senator from the state Ohio has come out in support of gay marriage after learning that his son is gay. Senator Rob Portman I support your change of heart and hope you may set an example for your party. Now let’s hope my state considers a change for the better!

Perks of Being a Wallflower

ImageIt’s been a long time since I’ve gotten back on here and I regret not being able to write as often. Still, the other day I watched The Perks of Being A Wallflower and found myself wondering what had become of all those cute summer books and all those coming of age films I use to love to write about. The book itself was a wonderful little read that I borrowed from my little sister who has seemed to pick up my same habit in reading for pleasure. I know we are a bit nerdy that way but trust me sometimes a good read will enlighten you in so many surprising ways. Either way this book was so touching and sincere that when I found out Logan Lerman and Emma Watson where going to star in the film I was ecstatic. I’ve had such a longtime crush on Logan for a while now and have been collecting all his films like Meet Bill and My One and Only. Emma Watson herself has blossomed into quite an actress. Watching Charlie  played by Lerman go trough high school and feel so vulnerable and shy was something that hit close to home. Sill, I almost felt a bit of regret at not being able to enjoy my high school as much as as I could have. It all went by so fast and I went about trying hard to not be noticed and it wasn’t till college that I actually found myself. Ezra Miller, who played Patrick in the film actually stole the film for me. Here was a kid so sure of himself and so confident I kept kept saying to myself that I wish I had found such a friend as him. Although in the book his character development was so much intense and deep than displayed on film he moved me nonetheless. I can’t possibly reveal all the little scenes that made the book and the film so touching but I know a lot of us can find similarities between us and the characters in the book.
