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!
It’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.
2 cute guys and what they like about each other
ps. I want the dark haired boy on the right!! 😉
This is just plain sad now. The father of a son who was bullied in the UK was found dead recently. Roger Crouch campaigned against bullying after his son, Dominic took his life. Dominic was 15 when he took his life. He was in the rugby team, full of life, beautiful at his age. His tormentors began bullying him after he kissed a boy during a game of spin the bottle. I can’t even imagine the pain the dad had to go through. In the end I am sure they are now reunited in heaven.
I have been neglecting this site and I apologize. But that is what a full-time job, an off and on relationship, and the summer will do to you. But here’s something to take your mind off that ;P
What is it about a simple human touch that changes everything all the while intoxicating you with high levels of happiness. What I mean by this is that the other day I met a random hot stranger who picked me to dance at a nightclub. Sure we danced and lived it up but it wasn’t till after when we were sitting at a local dinner that I actually lost it. A void began to fill up that I never noticed existed or that I might have forgotten about. By simple placing his hands on my knees while we waited for our waiter it all rushed back. The lack of affection and human touch made itself so clear to me. I live for these moments. Moments when the slightest thing, the slightest touch can give you the most joy. And maybe if even for a bit it can even make you forgot what it felt to be lonely. Moments like this never last but I try and hold on to them as long as I can and even as they fade away I know eventually I’ll come across another…
So summer is finally showing up and boy could it not have come at a better time. Ohio is depressing already as it is but the summer at least makes it a bit more tolerable. I know I have been neglecting the site but to my defense I have a full-time job now and a sort of life. So I would like to go out on a limb here and predict the coming months. One, I will finally get that summer romance that always seems to elude me and maybe just maybe not be the only one of my friends who has pretty much never been in a serious relationship. I mean come on…! I have seen less attractive and less in shape people experience more than I’ve had in a lifetime. Two, I will get rid of the mess that is my car and finally be able to afford a better vehicle. Sure it has got me through my college years and never failed me but after an accident with a deer last week I don’t think I can handle it much longer. Finally, and overall, I hope that my career and overall life takes off and I am able to finally take hold of my life and create happiness where it seemed to be missing.
Nevertheless here are a few things that I enjoy during the summers
1. Driving through winding country roads near my house on a cool summer night with the windows open.
2. Sleeping with the fan on and minimal or sans clothing 😉
3. Swimming in general and laying out in the sun
4. Going out to the club and enjoying the summer atmosphere
5. Playing soccer with friends and kicking their asses at it =P (even though they play year round and you haven’t played in like 5 months!)
6. Showing off extra skin… o wait I do that year round… but still
7. Catching sexy guys showing extra skin most everywhere you go
8. Summer vacations to the beach
9. Enjoying margaritas outside Chipotle
10. Meeting and making new friends…
My one hour drive to work has found me listening to the morning radio for the first time since those dreaded 7:45 morning college classes. Without Elvis Duran I don’t think I could find the energy or even wake up enough for the workday! Elvis, Carolina, and Danielle are the coffee to my mornings.
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I fell in love with Arcade Fire. I found a band that just like Radiohead, teaches me not only how to live but also how to love. I’ve heard of them for a couple years now but after hearing their song Wake Up in Where The Wild Things Are and their new song “The Suburbs”, I found a place for them in my heart. The lyrics for Wake up are probably the most touching and beautiful I’ve heard in a while.
Judas, Lady Gaga’s new monster creation of a video just came out this week. It amazes me how after so much creative art and imagery she still finds a way to renew herself and bring out a new hit. The leather jacketed Apostles just kills me! Can’t wait for this at the clubs!
And finally Rihanna’s new hit, “Man Down”, a song I first heard on my way out of work, is the perfect way to bring in the coming summer. The way she uses Caribbean reggae is just perfect… A nice tropical drink, a handsome guy on your side, and songs like this playing the night away at some exotic tropical beach and I am in heaven =)
