Striving to be the best version of myself
Single. Again.

Single. Again.

Having both my parents break down in front of me has got to be the most heartbreaking thing I’ve ever had to deal with. My mom’s panic attack last night will stay with me forever. It’s weird, given that I’m usually an emotional and sensitive person, that I’m the one that has to be strong this time. To protect them. Things will get better mom and dad. We’ll get through this …

SHIT I CAN'T MAKE UP: Conversation between my 7 year-old students today.
(Names have been altered slightly, just in case.)
Josie: I have a new crusshhhhh.
Matt: Me too! On a boy!
Pearl: You're a boy with a crush on a boy?
Matt: Yeah he's really cute.
Pearl: Oh.
(Pause for a bit)
Matt: Boys can like boys. I just can't marry him because boys can't marry boys.
Me: Yeah they can. You can marry whoever you want.
Matt: Really?
Josie: YEAH my Tia has a wife so now I have a Titi and an Auntie.
Matt: Okay. Then maybe I'll marry him.
Dave: (from across the room) No you can't you're seven.
(Age was apparently the only foreseeable problem anyone of my elementary schoolers could see with gay marriage. I almost cried out of happiness. Later, when I was asked if boys could kiss anyone they wanted, I replied "only if they want to kiss you back." And Josie responded "Yeah! Your body your life.")
My students are the shit.

I won’t let someone else’s happiness determine my own. Not anymore.
