Yesterday was Thanksgiving in the states and that got me thinking. What am I thankful for? Here’s is a list of the big things I’m thankful for.
1. Understanding Parents
I recently found out that there is a huge issue with LGBT homelessness especially with the youth. That got me thinking about what I would have done if my parents kicked me out of the house when I came out to them. I’m really fortunate to not of had to deal with that because I honestly don’t think I would have known how to of handled it.
2. Never Wanting for Anything
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Nerd, how can that be.I’m talking about basic needs such as shelter, food, and clothing. Sure my parents would tell me no and I’d be mad, but I never needed anything that would keep me alive.
3. All my Viewers/Reader
Well, I sure as heck wouldn’t continue to do this if it weren’t for you guys. Sure I love writing, but when you aren’t getting anyone to read what you’ve taken the time to write, it gets tough to continue.
Well, expect a new interview to becoming in the days ahead. It’s a first for Rants with Nerd,, but I’m not going to spoil the surprise.
It’s kind of a bittersweet, surreal moment to be posting this video. I never ever thought that Anyone But Me would come to an end. I’m getting choked up just typing this post. I created an extra special episode of Rants with Nerd to sum up my feelings.
I remember when I posted my coming out video (Click here) and Nicole Pacent, the actress who plays Aster, saw and tweeted me this:
I still can’t believe that I was inspiring to someone who really inspired me. I’m huge fan of hers and like I said in my video, she, along with the rest of the cast, has gotten me into wanting to act in front of the camera.
I’ve also had twitter conversations with Rachael Hip-Flores (HipFlor), the actress who plays Vivian, and Tina Cesa Ward, one of the creators of the show.
thternerd221—So I’m a little late on #followfriday but check these peeps out @AnyoneButMe @felciaday @HipFlor Check em out!!!!!
HipFlor—thanks for the #FF shout out!
thtrnerd221—it’s my pleasure. You are a true inspiration to me. Since watching ABM, I’ve started to identify myself as questioning. Thanks.
HipFlor—Honest inquiry is the best of all things. Good luck!
thtrnerd221— I’ve have come to the conclusion after 5 years of denying. I can’t say enough good things about the show and your acting abilities.
HipFlor—Thanks so much!
They’ve really created a community around the show and it’s going to be a small void in my life now that it’s over.
I’m not sure that there is anything I didn’t say in the video. It pretty much summed up how I feel about the whole thing.
