When I was 15 I fell in love, he was kind of a jerk, and I’ve loved him for years. Since I tried to talk to him about it but he sent his friend instead (coward!), I started writing letters to him, letters I never sent. I felt the need to put my feelings somewhere, I couldn’t have him return them, and I didn’t want to become bitter so I started writing one letter each day throughout high school. It started as a way of saying, “I love you and I wish I was enough for you” and it ended up being some sort of diary that kept me sane for five years. I will always be a little bit in love with him, but I can’t look at those letters, so I put them all away in the attic, closed in a black box hidden under layers of other things just to try and stop myself from reading them and remembering.
She Will be Loved is my favorite song.
When I was 15 one of my friends killed himself, I’m still not over it but it helped me remember that no matter how bad things are you should stick around and meet all the people you still have to meet and take all those decisions you still have to make, and live all those days still ahead.
Writing keeps me sane.
I give people 10 chances and I hate it.
Sometimes I feel like I’m the oldest in the family.
Every Halloween I put up ornaments singing along to the Marilyn Manson’s cover of This is Halloween.
When I was little and I still watched cartoons, I waited until I was home alone and then I’d pretend I was my favorite character from those cartoons, I’ve been Sailor Moon, Sana, Wendy…
I want to live in New York.
I used to have a crush on Robert Downey Jr. when I was about 8.

I can bend backwards until I’m touching the floor.
The first time I ever watched Glee, all I knew about it was that there was a gay kid and I was sure it was Puck. Until Kurt didn’t come out, I had no idea he was gay.
When I was in middle school my best friend and I asked our moms for the Harry Potter books; the one who got it first would bring it to school and we’d read together during breaks and we swore to each other to never read at home but always together.
I fell in love with Spain the first time I went there.
When I was 6 I wanted to be a neurosurgeon.
I’d like to have a ballet school when I’m a lot older.
When I was 13 I taught my best friend ballet and she wanted to pay me so she bought me Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets; that’s my most prized possession.
I have the whole series of Dawson’s Creek now and as I’ve been rewatching it, I see Jack and Ethan kiss, Jack and Toby kiss, and Jack and Doug kiss. And I don’t want to be “that person” but, didn’t DC come out a decade or so before Glee? And wouldn’t that make their kisses precede the Kurt and…
Klaine and Glee are in no way the first show ever to portrait gay teens, gay relationships, coming out, struggling with accepting yourself or any of those things for what people say that Glee is ground breaking, let’s not forget that the first gay kiss on tv was on Dawson’s Creek and it was the one between Jack and Ethan. The one show that took upon itself the title of ground breaking was Queer as Folk for the honest way in which they showed lots of aspects of being gay, they showed different types of relationships between gay and lesbian characters and their parents, they showed people having open relationships, having steady relationships, they showed everything, and that it’s why that was a ground breaking show. I think some people, both fans of Glee and some of the media, forgot what has been done before that let Glee be the way it is today. There were other things before that opened people’s minds and Glee helped that too, of course, every step is an important step, but it didn’t start anything, it didn’t show anything that hadn’t been shown before. I watched all those shows in Italy on the same channel, while I was growing up both in the afternoons (Dawson’s Creek) or prime time tv (Will&Grace, QAF…) but I’ve read somewhere that Glee was the first cable show that did what it did and I don’t know if that’s true or not, but it’s the last coming of a longer series and what has been done before, those risks that other people took before FOX, shouldn’t be forgotten because they’re why Glee is airing today.
