Long ago, I thought I was special, different than everyone else, and I was surrounded by adults who reinforced that thought daily.

Eventually, I realized that I was special, different than everyone else, and so was every other person in the world.

They left out the important bit. We're each special and different and that's what makes us awesome.

I celebrate your special difference, friends, each of you. May it bring you the joy in the coming years that it has brought me getting to know each of you during the last few.

Every one of you is precious and wonderful and unique and necessary and deserving of life and love and peace.

Anything your brain does to try to convince you otherwise is a mean trick.

Please try to remember this. Remember it unceasingly.

@Anarkat @ryen naming programming languages absurd names is kind of required from what I can gather

me, in elementary/junior high school: "Why do all the kids make fun of the music I like"

me, listening to the same music 30+ years later: "Why do all the kids make fun of the music I like"

Cage the Elephant really just made a whole sound around Cowboy by Kid Rock

RIP Kellye Nakahara.

Here's a sketch I drew of her long ago, in her role from the film "Clue."

just remembered that I'm old enough to have taken a date to a Peter, Paul, and Mary concert and they didn't think it was a sucky date, but I might have been the very last one to pull that one off tbh
