Yesterday was National Coming Out Day and while it’s not something I’m secretive about, because I am an apparent female married to a cis male, many people assume I am a straight woman.
I had conversations with my mother and aunt about sexuality when I was nine ish that they believed people are sexual and that sexuality isn’t binary, but more like on a sliding scale and that people are more heterosexual or more homosexual, but not completely one or the other.
That resonated with me so much that I immediately adopted the label bi-sexual.
I saw Ghostbusters this past weekend and added yet another strong amazing female character to the list of People I Want To Be When I Grow Up.
Jillian Holtzman, Ghostbusters
There are SO MANY REASONS I am nuts about this character. I’m gonna start with she has a PhD and builds AMAZING THINGS. So you know she’s #BRILLIANT. And the things she makes? And then her hair? And then her wardrobe including those yellow glasses? And then her attitude? And then her LINES? And then when she pulls out the pistols and kills EVERYTHING?
i was writing a brilliantly witty and epic editorial on negative versus positive impact; about how a compliment is usually brushed off with a humble thank you while a criticism is taken to heart and mulled over for days, weeks, or months.

Yesterday I made it to the doctor and had a conversation about why I need a referral to PsyQ. The last time I needed a referral, it was to the crisisdienst and I didn’t make it clear enough (I was being American, I didn’t realize communication was difficult) that the situation was dire.
