  1. 2000 was the peak of awkward for me.



    My friend found this photo of us. It was taken Easter Sunday 2000 in her grandmother's home in a suburb of Milwaukee, the farthest I have travelled from California since I was moved here by my family in 1980. In the photo my friend and her Nani embrace effortlessly while I loom awkwardly in the background like a lost lesbian in search of, well, I wasn't sure at the time. I know at the time I FELT like a boy, ...

  5. Beyond pathetic confession

    My mom is loving the coverage of the royal wedding. She tells me that I should love it too since I am able to see pictures of London. She's always known my fascination with going there and always poopoos the idea. I'm safer here, it's been cosmically worked out to be the case. It doesn't stop me from wanting to go to England, but it's impossible. I've tried before, you just get to a point where you give up trying.
