I am not in any way, shape, or form a music snob. I listen to songs on repeat even if I only like about thirty seconds of the whole thing (e.g., "bad guy"). But here is a list of songs that I really do believe are great.

  • "Rise" - Katy Perry
    • When the fire's at my feet again
    • And the vultures all start circling
    • They're whispering,
    • "You're out of time,"
    • But still I rise."
  • "The Sound of Silence" - Simon & Garfunkel; Disturbed
  • "My Immortal" - Evanescence
  • "Where Did Our Love Go?" - Soft Cell
  • "Paint it Black" - Ciara
  • "Someone You Loved" - Lewis Capaldi
  • "Wish You Were Here" - Pink Floyd
  • "Never be the Same" - Camila Cabello

soulmate - a perceived individual that you must incarnate with to further learn various lessons

    • generally speaking, everyone has more than one soulmate. They could be romantic, familial, etc. You know them because of how wildly deep the bond is.
    • some of our soulmates don't incarnate at the exact same time that we do, but remain in the spiritual realms. Some believe they act as our spirit guides.

When I was ten years old, I met one of my soulmates. His name was Jasper, and we quickly became very, very close. It was sometime in adolescence, I believe, where I first believed he and I started using "soulmate" to describe our powerful feelings for one another.

But as we got older, the things that I had always looked over began to suffocate me. I knew that I was vibrating at a different level, and I was too immersed in socia...

warning: As the title suggests, this contains STRONG opinions. I don't think anything in here is triggering, but you might be offended.

  • Pansexuality IS, in fact, bisexuality. But that does not mean that pansexuality is a bad or invalid term.
  • People should be extremely careful about labeling themselves as asexual, especially those who have:
    • gone through physical or emotional trauma
    • are not comfortable with their bodies
    • have a fear of abandonment
  • Some sub-labels are good and handy, but others are outright toxic (lithsexuality, fraysexuality, etc) to those identifying as such.

"So do you have a contraption, then?" he asked eagerly.

"A what?"

"A Muggle contraption!" Sirius cried. He looked almost manic now, his eyes wide and eager. He leaned forward hungrily. "With the rubber wheels and the noisy banging whirring things and the chairs inside that Muggles ride about in!"

"Eh?" Remus was completely lost.

"A...a...you know, a contraption. A clockwork coach, a noise-maker, a wretched cacophonous travesty, a...a...a...a motor!"

      • What is it? Identity capital is our collection of personal assets. It is the repertoire of individual resources that we assemble over time. These are the investments we make in ourselves, the things we do well enough, or long enough, that they become a part of who we are. Some identity capital goes on a resume, such as degrees, jobs, test scores, and clubs. Other identity capital is more personal, such as how we speak, where we are from, how we solve problems, how we look. Identity capital is howe build ourselves--bit by bit, over time. Most important, identity capital is what we bring to the adult marketplace. It is the currency we use to metaphorically purc...

  • "The Logical Song" - Supertramp

Why? This song is about growing up, and how the world steals your innocence over the years. It's about how hard times force you to be cold and logical--and when I was very young, I was exposed to a lot of trauma that forced me to be cold and logical as a means of protection.

I was still a kid, though, which is why I think this song is the best description. The tune is still happy, which I hope helps to indicate that in many ways, I was still very childlike.

Why? It's childlike, but also has hints of darkness.

Being a spiritual person, I've got a lot of different ideas and beliefs floating around in my head. I believe that MOST things have some sort of spiritual significance, and that includes gender identities and sexualities.

I do want to note that MOST spiritual people believe in the innate divinity of masculinity and femininity, but things tend to be very cis-heteronormative. I do not believe that this does a good job of explaining the human experience and is, therefore, not a good way to look at the human experience via a spiritual lens.

GENDER IDENTITY

13:

  • This is huge, and it is difficult, and everything is about to change. Just keep breathing, read your stories, write about it plenty, and keep building who you are.
  • You have every right in the world to be sad, angry, depressed. Most people would not be able to go through all the things you've gone through and still hold their head up--that's a fact. You have feelings. You have emotions. You are human, like anyone else.

    • I am 100% queer, but because of my primary attraction to masculine-presenting people, I am most likely to be in more M/F relationships than not. Thus, I am perceived to be straight by most people.

In 2016 I ran a list entitled Essential Traits in a Partner. Many things have changed in my personal life since then, and other things haven't. I thought about reviving the list and updating it that way, but then decided I might as well make a new one! I'm cool like that.

note: I am attracted to all gender expressions, but what I like in a partner regarding behavior and overall personality doesn't really change.

  • masculine expression - I don't mean super macho or anything, but I'm not very attracted to people who dress more feminine.
  • top
  • empathy, compassion
  • physically affectionate
  • someone who either does not want kids OR *might* want them one day
  • chivalry remains hot
  • appreciates my sexuality - Not in a "That's hot, let's have a three-way!" kinda way, but, y'know.

People are often confused about what bisexuality really is. If you believe that bi+ people are limited to just two, or that pansexuality is innately different than bisexuality, I encourage you to read through this entire list.

Yes, that is bisexuality.

The rise in understanding non-binary identities led to an increase in people being uncomfortable with the term bisexuality, because they worried that to be bi+ meant to exclude non-binary people. It doesn't. Nor is bisexuality limited to attraction to only two genders.

  • The Big Myth
    • "Not everyone is attracted to non-binary people!"
      • If we assume about 99% of the world is allosexual (meaning not asexual), then that means that 99% of the world is able to be sexually attracted to a NB person.
