I was crying, shaking, terrified to go to school. I saw my phone sitting on my desk and thought, “I should text my group to let them know I won’t be in class today.” I picked it up and hit the button. It lights up to reveal my Hanako background image(seen above). Even though I was still crying, I smiled at the sight of her.


I realized we are a bit similar, like I had thought. It’s one of those things that’s as comforting as it is horrible. We’ve both got very different issues that manifest in very similar problems. I never made that connection. The skipping classes has been a bit of a problem for me. Luckily, much like Hanako, some of my professors know about my problems and pretty much don’t mind if I miss frequently.


I just wanted to make a post about the character that is really easy for me to relate to.

Counting Down

I’m quietly counting down til the end of the semester. It’s also when I’m coming out to my parents. And then two days later, I’m going on a big trip.

Because my father is homophobic I am going to write a letter to my mom and then disappear. Anyone who reads this, feel free to offer any tips you might have for how to word the letter.

I’m a little nervous about that but I’m more nervous about meeting one of my online friends for the first time. (And his parents)

Yup, that’s what’s happening in my life. Exciting times (terrifying).
