HI random person who so happens to read this post, can’t really say I have been active on tumblr. Not making post, not keeping up with the ideas that I once had long ago. Only lurking the never ending pool of wonder that we call the dash board. With this post I revitalize my home which can barley be called a blog, refresh it with who I am today and give content with the work that I do.
I work for a non profit organization called “Out Now”. We are the only queer youth organization in Springfield MA and honestly Ive never heard of a place like were I work. No I’m not the best at my job and now my job isn’t perfect. We as staff open up every Wednesday from 5 - 7 to give the youth of Springfield a safe, fun, and engaging space and try to teach them something to actually help them with their lives that the school system cant. We try to keep them from making as many mistakes as we can, keep them from falling into the school to prison pipe line, and show them that they should be proud to be who they are today (in the moment).
We recently took them to two pride events, got them to participate in a flash mob, and had an hiv panel about were we came from and were we are at right now.
When I started posting on tumblr I wasn’t the person I am today, all I cared about was anime and porn…»;
but now I care about fighting oppression and teaching kids to love themselves and learn harm reduction methods to help them through their teen lives. I stand up for people who cant, speak out for the lost voices, and stand by some in solidarity because thats more than most people have ever given them. (still like anime and porn)
I honestly dont know what this post if for, is it to finally post something after so long, to brag about how awesome I am, or just actually start writing things out and making words into sentences to where it makes sense (and again I dont know what this post is for or ever where it was going)
