I just want to update...

I know a few posts ago I talked about the amazing and talented Sara Ramirez.

Well, apparently, well yea she did... because I just finished watching the season finale of Greys (btw, I don't watch it often and I remember why... because I always cry over something in there ha...)... and so Ms. Ramirez kisses another doctor on the show...

hmm... now I want to know what happens with that in the next season. But long story short, she is amazing as is her character, Callie Torres.

... maybe one day... only in my dreams people... haha


In OTHER news... I watch vlogs... especially one called 5awesomegays ... 5 gorgeous, cute, and funny gay MEN take a day of the week and vlog. Well, they're down 1 and searching for the 5th...

And what does my inner-gay man do? Audition...

So here's the link to the video, and if you like it (and/or like me, maybe you can rate me and hit that 5-star button underneath the video ... and/or leave a comment)...

May. 1st, 2008

tomorrow is my 23rd birthday. It feels like yesterday I was turning 16 and learning how to drive. It's crazy how time flies. I guess i've been having a good time.

I also graduate tomorrow with a dual degree in Spanish & Journalism ... next year I will be presented with my certificate in secondary education.

I am excited for this summer because everything is tightly fitting together... I am working at Best Buy and doing the CA position ... living in a dorm with a bunch of my friends on the same floor as myself and I plan to do some night recepting as well to make extra cash.

My goal this summer is to begin working out again, I already joined a softball team which has its first game tonight! And I'll start hitting the gym again normally as usual.

I just want this summer to be stress free and fun and I know it will.

Hope everyone else is doing well as the year winds down!

ciao 4 now.
I realized this weekend how much I just want to be held. For human touch... human contact ... cuddling or to be cuddled.

I miss that. But I'm realizing I can't miss you.
THIS... is who I AM.

A STRONG, TALL AND HANDSOME METRO, GENDERQUEER, JEWISH, FEMINIST, FAT BUTCH.

I AM EFFERVESCENT and PROUD. I AM warm to your touch and cold to your falsities.

I AM LARGE AND AFFLUENT, yet NEEDY and SUPPORTED.

I AM LIGHT AND DARK, DILIGENT AND RELENTLESS. SUCCESSFUL, ACCOMPLISHED AND INTELLIGENT.


I AM that teachable moment, behind the back burner of all your rage. PRIVILEGED AND OPPRESSED.

BROKEN, YET PUT TOGETHER.

I AM ridiculed and mocked, and at the same time ADORED and LOVED.

I AM RESPECTFUL and CARING. KIND AND GENTLE, ROUGH AND WILD.

STILL AND CALM, HYPER AND ENERGETIC.

PEACE AND WAR.

I AM that REFLECTION IN THE MIRROR.

that symmetrical link between the binary to which I adhere.

.... your justice is my injustice and my justice is your injustice.

I LOVE AND DISLIKE. I LIKE AND LOATH.

THIS is WHO I AM.

Remarkable beauty against a black canvas. Networked, interconnected and separated.

I AM an ever-changing palette awaiting amidst an angry artist.

And


I AM who made myself who I am: what I am, where I am, WHEN I am.

And that's just me.
I am just going to put this out here.

I am captivated by Sara Ramirez. She is so eloquent, beautiful and she just seems to LOVE LIFE.

And her cute little dances are adorable.


hmm...

If you don't know who she is -- youtube her name or google it.

... on the down low, she gave up drinking alcohol, she does a lot of work for GLAAD and support of the LGBT community and she has done a lot of body positive work too.

::swoon::

MBLGTACC '08

So I thought maybe I should just collect some thoughts about this weekend... which was pretty amazing.

Friday 50 of us drove down to Urbana-Champaign, IL to UofI for the conference. I stayed with Bri, Shonda and Kay. We registered and I went to this workshop on kink without pain. It was interesting just because it talked about different things one can do in the bedroom that aren't really the "norm." ha.

Afterwards they had the opening ceremony with Eric Alva, an ex-marine officer who lost his leg in one of the wars he was sent off to. He was an awesome speaker and right now is currently trying to abolish the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy. It got really heated in there because some people didn't understand why gays would #1, want to partake in the military with such a policy and #2, why should the LGBTIQQA community even support the troops when they are off hurting innocent civilians in other countries. I think most of you know the argument.

Afterwards we headed back to the hotel and pre-drank a little and headed out to the one and only gay bar, C-Street. It was really fun ... and got really packed because of all the people in for the conference. I danced my butt off in my new crazy kicks I bought on Thursday night before the conference.

Saturday we woke up in time to get ready and head into see T.J. speak... knowing him for 5 years now, I admit to myself that I never really heard him speak (unfortunately). And I have to admit that I never really listened to him before... This speech really touched me and made me think of a lot of things... such as how so many people believe in this hierarchy of oppressions -- as if one oppression is worse or better than the others. When it's not. and how much we all need to work together to make any difference in today's day in age. I feel like my day of college activism is coming to an end, but I hope that I can do something with these last few months and if I go to grad school it will be another opportunity for me to continue.

After that I hit up this awesome workshop with Las Krudas, a feminist, lesbian Cuban Hip-Hop group. Hearing their stories was awesome as well as helped me understand the situation of the LGBT community in Cuba right now. Then we had a little jam session and got to hang with the group afterwards.

That led me to head to the LGBTIQQA in Latin America workshop ... which was interesting and I can apply a lot of the information to my spanish class right now... but it was getting extremely warm in there and I started falling asleep.

I'm trying to think ... I think we all did dinner and went to the Vagina Monologues... ate some milk chocolate Vaginas and then went to see Las Krudas perform. That ended at midnight, so we went to the "dance against AIDS," which was like a high school dance and by the time we got a ride back to the hotel it was already 2am. (don't ask!)

A bunch of us just hung out and drank a little ... talked... and were ridiculous and I don't think I went to bed until 5am (maybe later) ... and I was up at 6-something AM getting ready and packing to get my stuff on the bus.

I went to the workshop that Cam and Lauren put on about having LGBTIQQA members in your family and then to the Jewish-Queer one (where it was just Shonda and myself)... pretty sad but definitely got some good tips and information to help out with Mishpocha.

We got to hear Angela Davis speak... she is incredible and such a powerful woman. And then we slowly headed back to the bus ... but I was able to grab a picture with Ms. Davis right beforehand!!!!

We didn't get back until like 9pm last night, and I went to my recept meeting... then was trying to unpack and get my shit together. I still have so much to do... I have 2 tests tomorrow (or rather later today) as well as a bunch of design stuff due on Wednesday.

I leave for NY on Thursday... yea.. hmm... I am nervous about this... mostly because it's a place I've never been and it's kind of on a whim.

So anyone from NY want to connect... let's do it!!! please.

Oh side note, I spoke to someone from GLAAD at the conference... she gave me her office and cell # if I want to connect with her while I am in NY... they offer internships and have job openings. HRMMM!!

I also spoke to the guy with Best BUy headquarters looking into the design department there.

so we shall see.... dun dun dun.

I <3 my mom

Hi Mara:

I had scheduled May 2nd off already when you told me that it was graduation. I don't know how much each tassle costs, but I think you should get the tassles for each graduation, don't you? I can't believe you are graduating already! Your college years went very quickly. When do you find out about your summer and fall plans (i.e., internship, student teaching, housing)? Next month hopefully the weather will be a little more predictable and maybe we could meet at the outlet mall and check out the Coach briefcase?

I may not tell you often enough but I'm really so very proud of you and all your accomplishments! You are one very hard-working, determined woman and you make me proud to be your mother!

Love,
MOO

The Sonnet

Deliberate Gentle Love Dreamer (DGLD)

The Sonnet

Romantic, hopeful, and composed. You are the Sonnet. Get it? Composed?

Sonnets want Love and have high ideals about it. They're conscientious people, caring & careful. You yourself have deep convictions, and you devote a lot of thought to romance and what it should be. This will frighten away most potential mates, but that's okay, because you're very choosy with your affections anyway. You'd absolutely refuse to date someone dumber than you, for instance.

Lovers who share your idealized perspective, or who are at least willing to totally throw themselves into a relationship, will be very, very happy with you. And you with them. You're already selfless and compassionate, and with the right partner, there's no doubt you can be sensual, even adventurously so.

You probably have lots of female friends, and they have a special soft spot for you. Babies do, too, at the tippy-top of their baby skulls.

Your exact female opposite:
