Pride is a beautiful thing. To be proud of something is to believe that it is right and has power.
After the recent shooting at Pulse in Orlando, I was reminded of the pride I have for my community. The LGBT+ community is an amazing place that can be so accepting to anyone who needs it. We are also ferocious in protecting other members of our community. Unfortunately we can’t always protect everyone from everything as the world found out this weekend.

My gorgeous sister.
You’ve already been through so much.
You are going through something that I can’t even begin to imagine.
The pain you have endured, both physical and mental, is immense.
You are the strongest person I’ve ever known and I consider it a privilege to call you my sister.
I love you will everything I have and I know that Mum and Dad do too.
Somehow, you manage to look badass and dangerous in your new suit of armour.
I’ve never heard you rate your pain above a six, even though I know that anyone else would call it an eight.
You overcome every obstacle in your life with courage and a sheer force of will.
Finally, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and I look forward to walking this last stretch of darkness with you.
You are my inspiration, my light, my sister.
I love you.

Then I went with my family to Red Beach on Bribie Island where, naturally, it rained (thanks Queensland weather), then we went for fish and chips which were absolutely delicious. Now I’m sitting on my couch and I’ve just started my quad-annual Harry Potter marathon which I do every school holidays.

I have one thing in my bedroom that I take great pride in: my bookshelf.
Books are a big part of my life so I like to make sure that my shelf always looks exactly the way I want it to. The shelves themselves are, if I remember correctly, from Fantastic Furniture and they cost about $100. They’re white open shelves with X frames on the sides.
The top shelf: Continue reading “Shelf Tour.”
Good writing is essentially rewriting.

This is a cute little story that I wrote a while ago and I thought that I would share it with you guys, just ’cause. It is very cute and, yes, it is about two boys so if you are homophobic, please leave and do not come back, I honestly do not care for what you have to say.
