It’s 2021. It’s a new year. One that I thought would be better than the last. But it’s only January, and there is chaos everywhere I turn. Sometimes, I almost feel like things are never going to get better. I mean, COVID cases are rising, political events are making tensions rise, and the new strand of the virus is even more contagious- and it’s in my state. I get restless when I go outside of my house. I can’t stop thinking about what to do if someone that I care about gets the virus. I have a ton of schoolwork now… I just wanted a better year, was that too much to wish for?

So long story short

Somtimes change suck

I went to church and now I’m older I’m in a different group, I’m seeing change, in me and my friends. My voice is changing, my hobbies are changing. I’m a little scared and annoyed at this, but I just I guess roll with it. I feel weird sometimes. I don’t want to talk about this with anyone. But Blogclan is good at giving me advice and you don’t actually know me so yeah I feel comfortable here 🙂

I kinda feel like I’ve been super rude and mean lately and I wanted to say sorry 🙁 I don’t know how to fix it, it’s like a visceral feeling. My friends keep telling me I’m fine and not to worry about it, but I can’t shake the feeling that I’ve just been… way out of line lately. Constructive criticism would be really appreciated, and I’m sorry if I’ve been rude- I really don’t mean to :(((

i made up a game that my brother had never heard of or played, I explained the rules to him, we played it and he cheated, i did something in the game which U ARE 100 % ALLOWED TO DO, and he said i was breaking the rules and cheating!
They are MY RULES 4 MY GAME, so how can i break them, it was also a totally acceptable thing to do and there WAS MOST DEFINITELY NO MISUNDERSTANDING, and my brother was just trying to win

My Problem
I Have Several Problems, And I’m Going To Share All Of Them.
THis Will BE Long- Hang In Their.
PRobLem Number One: I Feel Like I’m On The Hug Page Too Much. ThIS Is My Fourth Time This Month. I Dislike Having To Go On This Page. That’s Why I Go Anonymous A Lot: So People Don’t Figure Out Just How Much I’m here. I even Change up my writting Style A Bit so Peeple Can’t Figure Out Who I Am. Every Time I Am Anonymous On this Page, I Worry that Somebody Knows Exactly Which BlogClanner I Am.
Problem Number Two: I Worry My Mentor Thinks I’m Too Clingy.
I Know They Probably Don’t, But Still. I Don’t THINk I’m Acting Clingey, But Who am I To Know,? Do They See Me As An Annoyance?
Problem Three: I Worry That BlogClanners Find Me Weird & Annoying.
This Is Just Something I’ve Always Kinda Worried About.Even When I first Joined the Blog.
problem number four: I Worry About LGBTQ Things. I’m LGBTQ, and I Worry That Somehow, In the Future, When I Marry a Female Not A Male, I’ll Be Letting My Parents Down, And They’re Expectations Of Me Will Be… Gone? Idk. I KNOW there Expecting Of The LGBTQ community. But I Desperately Wonder: What would they Say If I Came Out?

Problem Number Five: I hate pretending.

I FREAKING HATE PRETENDING I AM A GIRL. FREAKING. HATE. IT.

I. Am. Not. A. Girl. I’m nonbinary, but Not Out.
Every Day I Almost Feel Like Screaming When Somebody calls Me “She.”

I Can Hardly Describe How Freaking Uncomfortable She/Her Pronouns Make Me Feel. They Make Me Feel Disgusting & Weird & Awful.

Problem Number Six: Still Stressed ;(

I Have Tried To Remove All Sources Of Stress From My Life. I Stopped Going On blog-chat, i stopped doing art requests, i blocked a toxic family member on social media.but something is still there, but i can’t place.what itis.

I Find Comfort In Fiction Characters, And In My OCs. I’m Clinging To That Comfort- Because It’s One Of the Few Comfort Sources I Have Left.

That Was All. If You Have Advice To Even one problem, I Will Be Greatful.
