So i found out that my dad has cancer and they give him less then a year to live. I’ve been thinking a lot about my relationship with him, and although I wish he were around more, and even been upset with him for it at times, I have come to realize a few things that change the way I have always seen his presence in my life.

My mother and father were very young when they were together. He was 21 and my mom was 17. She was 18 when she had me, had my sister a year and a half later, and then separated very shortly after. My high school girlfriend and I were in a relationship longer than the whole time they were together. In thinking about this, I remember what young love was like. Regardless of how that relationship ended up, I will always have fond memories because it’s just the type of love you can only have once. Very young love.

Seeing your children after separation is not easy, they are an antiquated product of a relationship gone by. I feel that my father felt a lot of guilt over what happened back then, and seeing a relic of a past life every two weeks is a heavy burden to carry. If I had a constant reminder of my failed relationship with Alyse knocking at my door, wanting to play, wanting to watch me play sports, listen to music, teach me guitar, come to graduation, it would be hard for me also.

Not only that, but the only time we have spent together in the last ten years, however infrequent, has always been initiated by him. I have never called him up asking how he is. never once asked if i could see him. I feel a tremendous guilt. I don’t want him to die thinking that I don’t love him, or that I didn’t want to see him, but how else could he feel?

I got to see a bunch of sweet friends last night and it was the best. I haven’t been hanging out with people much because I’ve been so busy but I’m really glad to have friends in my life that will always be good friends regardless of how much I see them. I was thinking last night it’s really cool to have a group of friends who all have their own thing. Like all of my friends have their one thing they’re really good at and knowledgable in and it’s nice because they’re all different idk I’m feeling really happy and thankful for the support system I have and the wonderful people I’m surrounded by. U guys inspire me every day this is an oscar speech

Here are some people that I miss.

Have you ever been made to feel like you’re the bad guy because you don’t want to date someone?

Have you ever been told that you aren’t part of a band while you’re on tour because you’re a girl?

Have you ever had unapologetic rapists move back home and lie about everything and have to see them…

I got harassed about my leggings twice today on my way to work:( I’m starting to think wearing gender neutral clothes is a bad idea. Like laughing or snickering is one thing, but damn, people can be so shitty
