I’ve made it to the finish line! I’ve enjoyed this month a lot, because I love psychoanalyzing & talking about myself. I don’t think I discovered anything new about myself, but I was forced to verbalize a lot of amorphous thoughts floating around in my head. And it sparked a lot of fascinating conversation. And it was a great way to help readers understand who I am and where I’m coming from. Overall, it’s been enlightening.

If you’d like to see my answers for each day, click the links below. Also, if you decide to answer for yourself, drop me a link! I think it’s fascinating to read other people’s perspectives and compare. 🙂

Next up, I will be completing the 30-Day LGBTQ Challenge. Here’s the questions, to whet your appetite. Once again, you are invited to complete this along with me. 🙂
