Smiles and Dreams

I sometimes have this fuzzy feeling, it’s a happy feeling and on moments like that I love where I am. It took me a while to get here and sometimes I try to explain how I got here. Today I made this post to try and explain how happiness is not reaching your dream but to take a step forward in life, no matter where you are. And never forget to smile because someone might need it.

A great piece about how making assumptions about a culture and way of living or for that matter a person or a personality can be more damaging than anything in the world.
Remember that people don’t exist of stereotypes and every person is a person in their own right.
Don’t hurt people. Take a step back and question yourself if you might be part of the problem, even if you didn’t think you were originally. Be honest to yourself. Have you possibly hurt people in the past with comments like this or attitudes which might have lessened the authenticity of one person?

 

Remember that every person is a person in their own right. They might conform to some stereotypes but people ARE NO stereotypes. People are people no matter gender, sexuality, colour or mental capacity. Everyone is a person in their own right and should not be made to feel less like the unique person they are just because they don’t confirm to the stereotypes you think they should.

 

Also in the same thought is my own post from a while ago:

Gay men and how I like them best Where I talk about stereotypes in m/m romance and assumptions some people have about gay men.

Songs of the Universal Vagabond

We’ve heard the term homophobic but how about being homo-ignorant? Even if you’re GLBTIIQ, even if you support those who are, might you be guilty?

The “ignorant” part of the word homo-ignorant is not to suggest someone is stupid, a moron or mentally challenged, but rather to suggest they simply do not know something accurately or haven’t thought a subject, topic, term, phrase, etc. through to understand what it can really mean though they’ve used it.  Regarding homo-ignorance, Aunt Martha (see this reference link) said, “I think it’s a very useful term to distinguish between people who can be educated, and those who are willful haters, no matter how nicely they try to gussy it up.”

It is not to minimize or directly compare itself to the seriousness of true homophobia, but in it’s way, homo-ignorance can be a broader, more insidious type of problem affecting people every…

Kindle Touch review

Today I finally got my Kindle Touch in. The release date for the UK was moved backward one week otherwise it would only have come out tomorrow but instead it came out last Friday. I had been keeping my eye on it for quite a while. I love my K3 and will definitely be using it quite a lot still in the future (see below why) but it is so cute and fast that I really like the K touch.

Gay men and how I like them best

Due to the amazing thing that is the internet, the kindle and (self)publishing I feel I need to write this post about something that really really bugs me and leaves me not reading about half the books I get on my kindle.

Crappy gay books

There, I said it and now I’ll explain what I mean with that.

[gay] College Boys – Daisy Harris

I recently found a new writer through the #amwriting hashtag on twitter and was lucky that she was releasing a new book only days after. I got my hands on a copy and LOVED it!

Missed me? This is what I’ve been doing behind the scenes lately

I’m nearing the last few weeks of my second year at uni and even though I have to do a lot of work for uni I’ve possibly tripled my own workload by also deciding to get some other stuff out of the way at the same time. Which is totally normal for me to do though stress inducing, I’ll probably never learn though 😉

 

So, apart from research for my essays what DID I do you ask?
