Love Simon and a Website Mess


Love, Simon
While watching the latest episode of Riverdale I'd recorded on my DVR, I saw the preview for Love, Simon and immediately was hooked.  I rewound and watched the preview a few more times.  There was so much about it that I connected with and related to with the movie.. I cannot wait for it to come out!

Website Mess
After years of hosting my images for my website and without warning, Ph... Read more of this blog post »

“What happens this weekend stays between us. We set the rules.”
Jayson James, Summer Escape

“Society sucks. It should not matter what others think, if we are fine with it. Still we both have to concern ourselves with what others might see and think.”
Jayson James, Tormented Discovery

“It had not been the first time that we had said something like this to each other. It was not like guys went around saying it all the time to each other, but over the course of the years of being the best of friends; we had said it to each other. Justin had been the one to say it more often to me. It took me quite a few times before I could say it back to him. This was something much deeper and we both knew it.”
Jayson James, Tormented Discovery
