So, a lot has happened, and I plan on making this a long one.
My new name is going over well. After the way my family treated me, I don’t want to be associated with the name they gave me. It’s literally the final thing that is tying me to them, and I’m okay with letting it go.
The most valuable thing I’ve learned since moving here is this: just because someone is really close to you, doesn’t mean that they deserve your immediate and total, unwavering respect.
My best friend since coming here left for her college on the 14th of September. I’m really sad to see her go. Rachel, if you read this, you’re welcome up in Seattle anytime (once I find a place).
That brings me to my next point: I’m moving to Seattle after the season is over. It was a good stepping stone to get into the real world, but I hate this place and 90% of everyone in it. The attitudes here suck. People insist on drinking themselves stupid every night. It’s not a good way to live or a good environment to live in.
I have gotten drunk twice since coming up here, had one hangover, celebrated an engagement, gotten promoted to ASSISTANT MANAGER (!!!!), made a lot of friends, saved back a ton of money, paid off some of my debt….I really do feel like I’m being a responsible, fun-loving adult here.
I’m having problems looking for a place to stay in Seattle. My credit is still shit (thanks, mom and stepdad), and I can’t exactly go to showings of apartments, considering I live in Arizona and they live in Washington. I also no longer have a phone, so there’s that.
I may be couchsurfing with another gay guy when I get up there. He’s also a real estate broker. I feel like karma is finally going in my direction and it’s awesome.
My boss is an awesome guy. Yeah, he’s two years younger than me but he’s into video games and we have very similar interests.
So, I’m pretty sure I’m polyamourous.
I’m still in like with Ryan. We’re talking again, if only intermittently, and I constantly find myself questioning why his opinion matters greatly to me. He dropped contact for the longest time, and acted like an all-around ass when we started talking again. Things are better now, and we’ll stay friends. but I’m not sure why his opinion matters to me as much as if we were dating.
There’s another guy from Flagstaff that I’m falling for. He’s incredible, and I’m jealous of his adventuring. He’s really genuine, and wants to come to the canyon just to meet and visit me. I’m not saying no.
My hair is purple, along with half of my wardrobe and things I own. Purple is DEFINITELY my favourite colour.
I’ll keep you all updated more often now. Matthias, out.

No, gender equality doesn’t mean you can “punch me in the face”. Gender equality means I’ll finally get paid the same amount of money as you for doing the same job. Gender equality means people will stop telling me how to avoid being raped, and will start telling you to not to fucking rape people. Gender equality means I can go to school in 30+ degree weather wearing shorts or a tank top, without being sent home because my outfit might “distract the boys”, since their education is obviously more important than my comfort. Gender equality means society will value me as equal to you, gender equality means I won’t be looked down on simply for being a girl.– me educating a boy today (via yolucas)
I love when people randomly follow me because I assume they’ve just seen something I said and went “ah yes. This nerd seems particularly strange. Let’s see what else it does”
That is done soooo fucking well holy bum
Do you ever have that moment when a kid is looking at you and you realize that they’re looking at you as a grown up? Then its like no child im a children too, dont. Im sorry my outward appearance confuses you.
really tho straight guys will go on and on about how uncomfortable it makes them when gay guys hit on them but lets be fucking honest how many times have u seen a guy continue to hit on another guy after hes visibly uncomfortable vs. how many times a straight guy has continued to hit on a girl after shes visibly uncomfortable
This needs more notes
this is really important
Do not hate the kids who read Wuthering Heights because of Twilight.
Do not hate the kids who support LGBTQ rights because of Glee.
Do not hate the kids who call themselves feminists because of Beyonce.
Do not hate the kids who read LotR because of GoT.
Do not hate the kids who question beauty standards because of All About that Bass.
Support them. Encourage them. Protect them at all costs.
I don’t care how you learned it. You are learning good things.
