So the past few hours has been constant spurts of amazing.
Today my dad and I went out for dinner in this fancy restaurant (ie. Pizza Hut) after a long time. We then toured the mall and bought a new iPad chord (finally!) and even managed to convince him to buy the cute Keep Calm and Go To London shirt (I’m a sucker for london themed shirts okay?)
At twelve am (June 27) after calling mum, he and I had a heart to heart talk about the LGBT community in my place and our thoughts and stands about it. I guess it was bound to happen, given my cousin (who is gay) is now living with us to be closer to his college. We’re both cis by the way, dad and I, and this was the first time we really had a deep conversation about this topic close to my heart. It went out surprisingly well and I managed to voice out my deepest questions and concerns. He was actually supportive, in his own little way. Sure, he won’t be raising rainbow flags anytime soon but he accepts and respects the people part of the community and though baby steps, I think for now it’s enough.
Later, when we said good night and he fell asleep, I checked my email to find a chapter update of Letters from Sussex by sussexbound (GUYS GO READ IT I TELL YOU IT’S AMAZING). There and then too, did I found of this amazing giddy exciting news that apparently Same-sex marriage is declared legal in all fifty states of United States of America.
Oh what a night! Or a morning, for me. But what the heck. Everyone is rejoicing. Even people I know in real life is rejoicing. And just to put the icing on the cake, my dad gives me permission to stay up late. I’m going to celebrate this amazing news by writing (and hopefully finishing) my johnlock chapter. Whoohoo!
Spread the awesomeness. Spread the love.
