ReflectingSomeone commented on the "I Used To Hate Being Gay" post I made last year that I also sent off to the Advocate (side note: one of my coworkers was googling my real name for some reason and came across the letter as well).
The poster was a 16-year old guy named James that's dealing with being gay and having a fairly rough time. It sounds like he's basically going through what I was going through back then. Really all I could say to him was that things will get better. I hope he realizes that.
After reading his comments and my post over again, I decided to go back and do some reading of my blog. In the 3 years or so I've had the blog, I've probably only done that twice. I've never really kept a journal at all, so it was quite interesting to read my posts and remember where I was in life, how things have changed, even how my writing interests have changed (and it hasn't really been all that long). It's an experience I'm not used to, but I enjoyed it. Now I just have to get back to posting more often again.
