On a Serious Note, Rambling

Are You Happy?

Recently, I spent some time in my hometown. I had finished performing in two plays at a festival and I desperately needed to get away from Pretoria. I love this city so much, but every now and then I need to escape for a little while.

During my visit, a former Sunday school teacher of mine passed away. I decided to go to the funeral and inevitably I ran into a lot of people I use to know. They all asked the same question:

“Are you happy?” Continue reading

I Almost Dated a Girl #GrowingUpGay

 

The world is quite horrible at the moment. Recent events, such as the Orlando gay massacre have left me feeling hopelessly upset.
