This weekend, my brother is home from college so we’re visiting my parents for some family time. Each time I visit my childhood home, which I still call my home, I instantly feel happiness, comfort and love. I always think about the girl I was when I lived there in high school and how similar and different I am now. In other words, I get really nostalgic in small doses and force myself to get back to present day. I hope you have a great weekend and relaxing Sunday!

Did she perpetually try to make it on her own, a la Mary Tyler Moore? Sold.”

When I rewatched the monologue as an adult, it struck a chord, because what closeted teenager hasn’t felt the need to play a role at some point, to suppress themselves and try to be the person their families expect them to be?”
