The Ending of a Beginning

Dear Everyone,

I realize it has been almost 2 months since an update from me. While this is due to a variety of circumstances (starting Sophomore year of College, being in a happy relationship, getting a job, and flat-out enjoying life as it comes), it has influenced my decision to discontinue my regular updates on this blog(?). I add the question mark because if down the road I decide to change my mind, this post will be right below and would look a little strange and comedic. But I have come to the conclusion that living my life through this blog is not what I want.

When I first started, I was a hopeless romantic looking for love in all the wrong places. I became infatuated and "obsessed" with many guys throughout high school. I guess it seemed a little ridiculous reading it, but obsessing over these guys was a huge part of my life. That's why I chose to write about it. It helped ease my mind but also created a sense of "neediness" for more interesting things to happen to add drama to my story. To quote Miley Cyrus, I started "living for moments" instead of "living for people". Everything that happened in my daily life sparked an idea in my mind that I then formulated into a blog post.

In NO WAY do I regret writing this blog. Sure, I've had many "close-calls" with it, but I have never written anything I've felt guilty about. I also don't think it "ruined" my life. It has been an excellent learning tool for myself and hopefully others. I also think it will be something inspirational to look back on as I get older when times get tough. And in those times, I may decide to start back up my regular entries.

This blog is for everyone. I guess my target audience would be any LGBTQ youth who feel like they are alone in the world. I want you to know that you are not alone and that my story contains pretty much everything you need to know about me.

If you EVER need someone to talk to, don't hesitate to email me at I check it daily and am happy to talk with anyone who just wants a friend to talk to about things they can't trust anyone else with. I don't care how old you are, where you're from, or what gender you are. I just want to know YOU and help YOU.

So, I guess this is my goodbye (for now). I am sad to go, since this has been such a large part of my life over the years. But I think moving on and living for me and enjoying the moment and the people I'm with will lead to a happier life. In conclusion, I would like to thank everyone who has been, is, and will be following me on this strange and wild journey called life.

Take care,
Tristan Skyler
