Guys, I did it.

The following post may be offensive to transgender/transsexual/bi-gender people and those who use their faith as an excuse to bully 19 year-old girls online.

A Storm, The Holidays, And The Mentally Ill

This is something that, as a Christian, I really don’t think about nearly enough. Once I get my life in order I hope I can start focusing on volunteering more. It’s scary to think that if I hadn’t been so blessed with such an amazing family, I could very well be on the streets, myself.

I didn’t post it until now because I’ve been too tired or busy to edit it.

How was everyone’s Halloween? Mine was pretty good. I had a party and a makeup-heavy costume that were causing me a lot of anxiety early on in the day (I actually woke up in the morning!), but the costume turned out really well and the party was fun, for the most part. Actually, I’m writing today because something happened at the party that ticked me off and upset me, and, well, this is the perfect place to express those emotions. (Click for more words…)
