I can't believe I've been here for 11 years. This journal was not pretty in the beginning. I was literally a teenager when I started. I was 18 and I was entering my freshman year of college. Now I'm 29 (BRIAN KINNEY'S AGE) and looking back at that time both feels like another life and feels like it was just yesterday. I was brand-new in the Queer as Folk fandom. I came in around Season Three and it's never really left me. It's provided me so, so much as a fandom. It's the fandom that keeps on giving. I've met the most amazing friends, friends I used to admire from afar when they were posting here and being so popular on LJ while I was just a wallflower. Back then, I didn't even think that was possible as silly as it sounds. But it's possible and it's been an awesome 11 years.

I can't wait to see what the next 11 years have in store for me. Hopefully, more photos, more fun travel adventures, just more of everything. LJ's definitely still my happy place and it's going to be the main place I go to be me.

It's finally Thanksgiving and that means that I had a half day today.

That also means that I have four complete days of vacation in which I'm thinking about what I'm going to do. I'm going to be doing the eating thing tomorrow but since we don't really have a lot of family over, Thanksgiving is just an ordinary day with a fantastic parade and a hell of a lot of food for me and my mom.

I used to boycott the holiday because when I was 8 years old my dad decided that he wasn't going to come for Thanksgiving and that was really crushing. Honestly, it's not like I remember many Thanksgivings that I had in my house with my family but I remember being 8 years old and my dad telling me that he wasn't coming for Thanksgiving. I remember crying on the phone and asking him why.

It was one of the first times that I really felt the effects of the divorce on me and it was a painful experience. You know what? Most of the time I'm really Chandler for Thanksgiving. I just want the food, I want the day but then it's over and I don't really think about it much. But, I guess my mom and I now have this new tradition of buying food, watching the parade and just doing whatever.

So, I'm thinking about what to do. I have a lot of movies that need watching. I have a lot of DVDs to go through. I'm thinking about doing that. I'm also planning to see Milk soon. The movie prices are kind of outrageous at Arclight so I'm debating on whether or not I should wait for it to come out nation wide so I can see it in other theaters for a cheaper ticket. Although, I love Arclight I don't know if I want to pay $14.50 a ticket.

Ah, what are the holidays without these entries?
