Daily Prompt: Playtime

Do you play in your daily life? What says “playtime” to you?

Absolutely. Life is WAY too short to be all srs bsns work hard work work work. There’s gotta be some time to unwind and play. Whether it’s rolling around on the floor with my dog, or playing Mario Kart with my nephew, I’m always down to play.

Daily Prompt: Close Call

Tell us about a bullet you’re glad you dodged — when something awful almost happened, but didn’t.

This actually happened to me last Friday.

We had family from my Dad’s side over because they were dropping off their car so my Dad could work on it.

If you’re just tuning in to the game, my Dad’s side of the family are extremely religious [Roman Catholic] and well, I’m gay…so.. you do the math. I basically have to go to Narnia any time they’re around.

We were having a conversation about relationships or something and my Aunt happened to be all “Sara, when you get a boyfriend blahblahblah…” and my Mom piped up that it’ll never happen. My aunt took it as “because my Mom is overprotective as shit” but there was awkward silence until she pieced it together that overprotective wasn’t the case, but in fact that I was gay.

My Aunt was like HOLY CRAP! How long has this been? I’ve been out for over seven years. She was VERY happy for me.

and just….whew. Bullet dodged. Fluked grenade.

Coming out is always going to be an anxiety trip. It never gets easier.

NaBloPoMo – Day 20

How do you feel about the first blog post you ever wrote?

To be completely honest? Embarrassed as hell. It wasn’t really a blog post at all. It was a LiveJournal entry of mass hysteria. My friend gave me an invite code because at the time that’s how LJ worked in 2002, and as most new things do to me: I had a sense of anxiety because I did not know how it worked properly.

The entry was basically AM I DOING THIS RIGHT??? CAN YOU SEE THIS??? and my friend would comment on the entry and I would be like I DON’T KNOW HOW TO REPLY!! HELP!

If you’re looking for Thanksgiving related posts…. here ya go. Didn’t want to be a broken record as it’ll continue to be the same until I move out of my parents’ house.

Eventually I figured it out of course because I am just that damn smart. LJ would become the home for my thoughts up until I decided to go public with a WordPress blog. I still actively use my LJ, but moreso for the private thoughts that I don’t feel like blasting publicly. Hooray self-therapy.

Daily Prompt: A Bird, A Plane, You!

You get to choose one superpower. Pick one of these, and explain your choice:

  • the ability to speak and understand any language
  • the ability to travel through time
  • the ability to make any two people agree with each other


I would like to have the ability to speak and understand any language. While travelling through time might be awesome, what’s past is past. What happened in the past made you the person you are today. Making two people agree with other all the time would suck too, because then ┬áthere would be no conflict, and sometimes others’ conflict is needed [just like dark needs light.]
