100th Blog...

Wow the big one double zeroes. I have written quite a few blogs here for a small little blog page and  I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who has taken the time and read some of my little blogs, it means a lot to me, so thank you. For the 100th blog, I wasn't sure what exactly to write up, but I knew I wanted it to be a little more personal that what I usually write, and seeing how today is National Coming Out Day, I fiugred I could use this opportunity to bring everyone, all my readers and anyone who follows my art works up to speed on an important detail in my life.

I am a pansexual. Or as it's more commonly known, bisexual. But basically I don't really see gender or stereotypes and roles, if you look great and have an even better personality, well get me three beers and a mojito and call it a night. I make great breakfast in bed in case you are wondering.

But yeah, that's me. I like girls, I like boys. I like tomboy girls, I like pretty boys. I never wanted to tie myself down to anything really, and I realized this a few years ago and I spent a lot of time in secret and kept to myself. I honestly didn't feel I had to tell anyone, it was something I wanted to keep to myself. I never felt like I could come out and be accepted in some circles, it could possibly damage my relationship with a lot of my male friends. But finding a family that accepted me for everything that I am; silly, strange, poor, obsessive at times, etc. I felt that it only made sense to accept this part of me, and embrace it. Not to mention I want to know more about everyone I meet and I want to make a connection with my audience, so I need to be completely honest about everything in my life.

But to those who know me, is this really a surprise? If you think back, the signs were all there. And honestly thank you to all my friends and family who have accepted me and loved me through all these years and continue to do so. So to you I say this, we only have one life and we need to live that life to the max and love as much as we possibly can before it's all gone. Thank you again to everyone who is following my work and coming along this ride, keep chasing the storm.
