The Culmination of Year 21

Monday, November 3, 2014

In just six days I will celebrate the 21st anniversary of my birth, and with that rather large commemoration of life comes a time to reflect on the wisdom accrued since my last revolution around the sun.

Just before the my last womb-liberation day I entered into a relationship that would ultimately teach me more about human nature and my own self than any other experience or inter-personal relation ever would. I discovered my own strengths--and admittedly, weaknesses--and realized that I was allowing others to depict how I should view myself.

That relationship ended in a predictably sad way, with me alone and my then-partner settled happily amongst a harem of internet consorts. But hey, when you learn a good lesson you can't hate the teacher.

This year I have begun the long journey into learning what emotion is...and how to have it. For such a long time I expended my energy on feigning happiness for everyone that I forgot that sadness, anger, and "bleh" existed. So now, I focus on allowing myself to emote, to cry when I need to and stand up for myself when I need to.

My family has been increasingly more supportive of all of my decisions, and through some magical twist of fate we all actually get along now. I'm glad that I chose you guys.

The best part of this year has been the most recent. In the last few months I have somehow fallen into the most incredible group of human beings. These people have become my friends....something I haven't really had in a long time.

They merit the most amazing praise and I cannot be thankful enough for their existence.

Scott, Maury, Jared, Caroline, Kate, Nick and Chad (yes, even you, buddy): Thank you. Thank you for being a part of my life.

Six days. I have just six more days of this portion of my life. I'm ready to close this chapter and begin a new one with the beautiful people that I have chosen to share myself with.

Twenty, you've been cool, but it's time for me to move forward.

xoxo darlings,


  1. Aww this is beautiful! It is so important to let your emotions flow (I learned that around the time I turned 21 as well). They are a natural part of us and glad you are embracing every bit of it, #ownit. Anyway, I hope you are well and have a GRAND birthday!

    1. Vonecia! Thank you so much, that really means a lot. I hope all is well with you, too!
