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 the same. 

I got the news when I was with my love. He is excited too, and I’m excited for both of us as well. I got round to telling my parents and they are happy for me, but I also know the worst is yet to come. They will be fine with me leaving (I’m the last to leave - which is a big deal in South Asian families), but also they will want me to stay. I have however been conditioning them for this, and that has taken effort and practice to make it work. So hopefully things will go fine and they will be ok with me going, and not coming home every weekend. 

The only other thing that I have to consider is if they want to visit the flat to see me. I have already decided that if they do then I won’t hide anything. It will all be there in plain sight, and tell them that their son has found love, and introduce that love to them. It won’t be an easy ride for sure, and I am certain it will be the end of them wanting to talk to me, however, I can’t wait anymore. My time is now, and I won’t allow anyone to stand in the way of that. I’m determined to make it work, and love my life.

After all, it’s mine to live anyway.

Out

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

 Hi all, It's been a while since I last wrote a post, and to be honest not much has gone on in my world. Except for a pandemic, starting a new job and celebrating one year in the flat. So yeah, not much but also a lot! This year has been crazy, and it doesn't look like it will get any less crazy anytime soon. The pandemic is still rife, and affecting everyone and everything. I truly hope you are all keeping well and trying to maintain social distance with face coverings and hand gels galore. It has affected all walks of life, has made us adapt to a 'new normal' and has forced us to re-think our daily lives in general. One aspect that has affected everyone is travel. Be it local travel on public services, or the all elusive holiday abroad, we have all been affected. Bae has not been able to see his parents since the beginning, and every little sliver of a chance he gets to go back, the rules inevitably change and it becomes harder. I for one am tired of not having a holi
