This is my Remember When spread in my journal that I am working in for a class from Juliana Coles. I picked a very pivotal time. I was maybe upper elementary 5th or 6th grade and some new people moved into the house down the block my brother and I were excited because they had kids- a couple were near our age. But Scott (I can't believe I still remember his name) was much older high school and was so handsome and nice and I felt so excited everytime I was near him. I had never felt that way before. I made him gifts and he was nice but later politely blew me off- It was the first feeling of being gay- attracted to boys- I was confused but knew this attraction to boys was never going to go away. It did take me many years to really deal with it and come out. It feels so good to be happy with who I am. The figure on the right has the transparent little boy in it- - I felt it captured that young child that still lives in each of us.
