To a lot of high school students our final year must go out with a bang-whether that means getting a whole new wardrobe, showing a side that people never thought to have seen of you or getting a date for all the social events that are going on that graduating students would most definitely want to take part in. Now, the main problem is that although it’s nice to go to these events with your closest friends and create the best of memories with them, a small part of me wishes that I do that with a potential partner.
Okay, before you read: I wrote a really good version of this last night, as a second journal entry. I pressed submit and KAPOW! My computer decided to die on me. I forgot to save. So... please read this one and make any comments that might be needed. Thanks!

Bio: It's all in the story.
Feel free to tell me what you think!

As I write this, I am sitting at a small desk in study hall, watching the snow outside blanket the street with a thin layer of white fluff. The flags in front of the school are still at half-mast in honor of the death of Gerald Ford, though it’s been several weeks since his passing.
All of it is justified,
Latent excellence in genocide
Here in hell, their suicide
Never made the yearbook.
So let’s all hold hands
And play ring-around the rosie.
So let’s all hold hands
From the ashes to ashes
From then to what’s now
From the battle in the home
To what’s lying in your bed.
To circle jerks on your sweet sixteen
To soap suds and your first wet dream
Hey, I've listed links to each of the covers I designed.
Note: the second one is more of a joke than anything. I was bored when I designed it. It's still kinda cute though.
For those of you who want to see the good details: Hi-res
...how busy the site is now the Gay Like Me project is underway?
I think its great! like once the new format of the site came in everything seemed to slow down in a sense, but now the site is a beehive of activity!
Yikes, can't take a mini-holiday from the site anymore... entire projects spring up in my absence (as well they should).
Pat Nelson Childs has taken a post by our very own haNa and turned it into a full-on book proposal where anyone can contribute artwork, writing, editing, etc., to create a book about what it is like to be a gay teen today.
