Playlist — May 2017

A lot of things are having their lasts, and a lot are having their firsts.

In two days I have my last Garage Music News meeting, where I’ve been writing for the past two years. Being there has made me a better writer, a better friend, a better listener and collaborator and worker and person. There I’ve made friends like I’ve never imagined, people who inspire me every minute and help me grow and change.

Yesterday I came out to my family. I start my new life with a new name I thought long and hard about that feels more like me than anything ever has. It’s both nerve-wracking and relieving to not have to worry about who I’m being when, and I don’t know what life like this will be but I hope it’s just as good.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I bought seven books the other day and have to read them all before I move.
