So on Sunday, September 7, 2014, my choir went on a retreat to rejuvenate our faith and get to know each other better. We did a lot of activities. I didn't film all of them, but here's the ones I did film.

One of them was basically reintroducing ourselves to everyone by writing a symbol for our name. I opened up about my bullying experiences and how being with the choir has been so healing for me.
 

Another activity was breaking into small groups to talk about what some of the songs we sang that day mean to us. I talked about my dad a bit(he has advanced Parkinson's), my own personal growth and mentioned how proud my online friends were of me when I posted the video of my brief Silent Night solo on Christmas 2013(link goes to Vimeo because Youtube blocks it in the UK for some reason. Here it is on Youtube). I was finally able to talk about the antibullying stuff I'm doing online and it felt great to really be LISTENED TO by people who wanted to hear what I had to say.
  • Mood: Peaceful

I like to give out points at random to people I already gave llamas to, but I'm running low. I need to get points so I can give them. Help, please? :)

Hello, I just thought I would stop by and say hi, Hope you don't mind

I loved your stories and your videos, they kinda inspire me to keep doing what i'm doing, mostly writing my own stories, sometimes even novels! through at times I give up on said novels

You yourself has inspired me, I was bullied when i was in elementary school and in junior high as well in high school, I hope you can continue to inspire others

:hug: Thank you so much, that made my day. :heart::heart::heart:

The fact that you're still breathing after all that is proof that you're strong and a survivor, and THAT is pretty inspiring!

Your welcome, making everyone's day is my personal job~

Truthfully I did wanted to give up, some ppl may think I had it easy but I don't, mainly cause I was autistic, but every time I watched transformers or Godzilla, I forget bout everything,my mind kinda goes on the adventures with the series as a little character heheh

I'm on the spectrum too, and I know it's frigging hard to follow along with IRL peers whose interests are not even in the same universe as your own. Admitting you liked cartoons or Power Rangers in the 90's was basically a social death sentence. It sucked. I'm so glad the internet lets people share their interests without too much judgment or meanness. (Admittedly, bullying happens online too, which is sad.)

Fandom is a great form of escapism! Fanfiction is my favorite method of escapism and it's gotten me through some rough times. :D
