i love her i love my mom

I was having fun during this morning’s commute counting all the fairy rings that popped up overnight. I felt like a kid again. As I arrived at my destination I thanked my Joy Guide for a lovely drive, then I received this pic from my mom of a fairy ring in her yard, lol! I don’t know if it was the cherry on top that my Joy Guide arranged or if my mom and I just think alike but gosh I love a good synchronistic event ;)

Do you love being a fun mom?

I really, really do. I grew up in a household where Fun Mom was mostly overshadowed by Angry, Screaming, Abusive mom. The times when my mother was carefree and joking are among the only happy memories I have of her. She’s how I learned how to be a mom and how not to be one, and I decided a long time ago to create a joyous home for my own kids where laughter and love go hand in hand. I have high standards and take no shit, but those kids get tucked in every night with our own special “just us” game, joke or little moment and knowing that above all, they’re loved. 

Anonymously or not, ask me something you’ve always wanted to know about me.

What was coming out like for you ?

Well, not terrible, my mom and stepdad were always really cool about it. It was actually an accident. I was talking to mom one morning about something and like, I thought she had figured it out because that’s how she is. Anyway, I was like “yeah so you know I liked my old friend X anyway, so” and she goes “wait.. Wait. You liked him? Ok, Imma grab some coffee, and sit down and we can talk about whatever but no, I did not” lmao. She’s great, I love her. My dad was a little more intimidating so I told my stepmom first who is super duper chill, and then later that day I go to see a movie with dad and he’s like “your step mom told me, I’m not sure I understand fully yet but I love you and what you do is up to You” - since then he’s grown A LOT cooler. And he was never mean about it

I got lucky. I really did. Besides being teased all the way up to my senior year of highschool (I came out the summer of my freshman year in college to my family), but hey, weren’t we all

I know how it feels. I know how it feels to want to end it all. And there were times where I would have if I wasn't such a coward. But I learned that there's always something to live for. For me, it was my mom. It might not be the same for you, my mom is an amazing person. I realize I couldn't do that to her. There's something to live for. Maybe it isn't a person. Something you love. Maybe it's the sky. Maybe it's the rain. I love rain. Maybe it's a video game, like KH3. Please don't end it.

That’s great. Great for you.
Unfortunately my family would probably throw a party if I was gone. I honestly shit you not.
It use to be big things to look forward to, like an actual future. Then it seems like every month, it gets smaller and smaller. It dwindled down to just video games, the things I love the most, but now I honestly don’t care. I do not care.
I just want peace, I want freedom.

My favorite headcannon is that Jack has an amazing singing voice and he doesnt even know it.

One day when they’re driving in the car, Bitty has his Sappiest Love Songs Ever playlist going, and Jack’s hitting every note in If I Ain’t Got You. By now Bitty knows Jack can sing, so he posts a video of Jack just going at it on his twitter. The offical Falcs account retweets it. Lin-Manuel Miranda retweets it. Bad Bob retweets it with a “He definitely got that one from his mother”. #WhatThePuckZimmermann is trending #1. The world absolutely loves that this big, quiet, awkward hockey bro also belts it out to sappy love songs on long drives, and Bitty is so proud they finally get to see a part of the real Jack.
