I Can’t Remember When I’ve Been So Happy


So sorry it’s taken me a while to update anything here. I just turned in my final project for Queer Studies, and it’s been an amazing 10 weeks for me in this recent quarter.

I’ve two weeks between quarters, and a few days completely free to update the hell out of this blog, lol. I’ve got *so much* to add, it’s overwhelming, but I’m getting to it.

For now, I wanted to share something with you all. I’m writing an article about my journey back to my sexuality through detailing the subtext in X-Men, and it’s intricately tied to everything I’ve learned in my classes thus far.

I’m including my extreme excitement about going to Pride for the first time in 15 years with some awesome friends, and my growing and ever-present desire to be with the community, especially the women. (But all of you, honestly. I’m just really looking forward to the feminine aspect of it, lol.)

I’ll post it here when it’s done, in case it may be of interest to anyone.

These coming days, I’ll get the Resources section up, and I’ll be posting the first film subtext post for Let The Right One In. Hopefully, I’ll also have Hannibal E01 up as well. I’ll be including also a short Hannibal meta I wrote on Tumblr. The film and television sections are my main priority outside of Resources.

For now, I just wanted to come on here and say this: I cannot remember a time in my life where I’ve felt more excitement than I feel now, and I am happier than I’ve been in a very long time. The reason? I’m home. I’ve come home to my people, my community, where I haven’t been in a long time. Life took me away from you, but no longer- I’m coming home. The joy I feel from this is…overwhelming, and I can’t wait to get out into the real, social movements happening out there. I need to connect to that whilst also going to school, and also remind myself of my pansexuality.

I am joyous, and I owe that to detailing subtext in a comic book film, and listening to the voices of all those involved. Life is mysterious, is it not? And beautiful.

So, this week…more coming.

By the way, if y’all see a woman on the news who busts into Pride like a rainbow Kool-Aid Man, it’s me. Just FYI. XD

Keep the Faith,
