I do that new new

Hi all,

Happy New Year! Hope you all had a great 2018, and hope 2019 is even better than that. Well I say a great 2018, lots of things happened last year that were bad. The media was inundated with lots of articles about the troubles all around the world. I really do hope that 2019 is the year that we start to rebuild, reconnect and start changing for the better (Brexit, I’m looking st you here). But a new year means change. This will be a pivotal year for the UK, and for all of us living here. We could change what we know, and change our future forever. But as complex as Brexit is, we all ty to change ourselves in a new year. It’s a chance to start fresh and do better than last year.

For me, that means both big and small changes. I start this year with more hope for any year I have had before. It’s taken a while but I have become more secure with myself, more sure if my abilities and more sure of what I can achieve. I may place more pressure on this year to change my life around but I feel more confident that I can actually achieve the goals I set for myself. At least that’s how I feel now. You never know what the year will bring, as there is so much uncertainty. Maybe that’s a good thing though. Venture into the unknown and see what happens, what changes and what it brings forward.

One thing I know I want for this year is more of a social life. I have gradually built that up over the last year, and I want that to continue. I want to reconnect with people and repair lost friendships. It’s important to keep people within our lives, and I came to that realisation over the last few months. I will meet new people, say yes to social events and make new friends. I know that it will help my mental state, and it’s nice to have people in our lives that understand us, and we can relax and enjoy spending time with.

So I start my 2019 with hope. Even though there are a lot of things that will happen this year that can detract from that hope, I will keep it close to me. It will see me through, and make this year my best year.

Welcome to my house

Hi All, I got the best news this week! I’m going to be a home (flat) owner!!!! For those that know me and my story you will know that this is a big deal. It means I can finally move out of my parents place and start living life the way I want to, and in pride month no less. What better opportunity could I ask for? It means that I can live with the love of my life, and do all the cute and fun couple-y things that we were always meant to do.  It means I can just be me. That’s the main point really. No more hiding who I am, no more having to answer to others. Free to be who I want, go where I want, come back to the flat whoever I want. It’s not like I’m in a jail sentence at home, but the comments made on how late I come back home do take their toll. I’m the type of person who wants it to be easy, don’t cause too much of a fuss and that way no fights or arguments happen. I mean I am human and I will provoke sometimes, but for the most part I’m easy going and want things to be

This is the end

Hi All, I hope you have all been well, and that these troubled times of COVID are getting better in your respective countries. Thankfully with the vaccines out things will eventually get better and somewhat back to normal. I hope everyone is staying strong during these times too, as they are tough and have really tested humanity to almost breaking point. I realise it has been a long time since my last post. I mentioned a few posts ago that I have run out of things to say about my journey. I have a wonderful partner, a lovely home with him and a nice balance with my family who I can keep my secret life a secret from. So things are going well. This is something the 'me' of a few years ago would have never imagined. I remember a time when I was doubtful I would ever be this happy and in a long term relationship. But I persevered and am better for it now. Even during a pandemic and lockdown(s) I have remained happy, and thankful that I could still work.  I guess one of the reasons


Hi all, Hope everyone is keeping safe from the pandemic and that the pressures are starting to ease off a little in terms of lockdown. It has definitely been a strange year, and it will continue to be for a little while longer. I honestly feel we should write off 2020 and forget it ever happened. Despite all the tragedies and despair there have been nice things to come from it. People are being friendlier towards each other and helping neighbours. They are innovating in times of need and helping out in any way that they can. It will be tough to move forward, and the effects of the lockdown will last for a generation, but we will endure. My post is about a little gem that I found on Disney+ called Out. It's a short animation about a closeted gay man who is struggling to tell his parents about his boyfriend, and the reason he is moving because of it. This is a first for Disney, as they have never really showed an out and proud gay character in anything before. They have alluded
