Emotional Thoughts From Comic Con
I made a terribly sappy video about this but it’s mostly just sighing and stuttering so let’s try this in text. I just wanted to let you know, I think you’re all incredible.
Short story; high school sucked. Slightly longer short story; I didn’t have friends for the majority of high school. Coming out went badly, as did other things. There was a lot of sexual harassment and bullying and you know. Things. So the juxtaposition of this year to last is incredible. Having friends is incredible. GETTING FILMED BY BBCA (always all caps levels of excitement about that) is incredible incredible incredible.
Friday was such an emotional day for me; waking up in San Diego with clone club friends was amazing enough, honestly. Then, the meet up line, and people singing along, and oh my god people know my music. PEOPLE HAVE HEARD MY SONGS. Whoa. Cameras are great, recognition is superb. But the connections drawn from lyrics written in lonely spaces is something I appreciate more than I can express. I have friends because I did a little story telling on a cloneversation video. And I have friends from writing songs. That’s more than I could’ve hoped.
Seeing the cast in person made this all so real for me. Because that’s the goal, in a sense. Not fame, or OB specifically, but being part of a project that changes lives. OB has definitely changed mine. And oh hey, so have you clone club.
Thank you so, so much. I adore you. I get a lot of credit sometimes about these songs, but they wouldn’t be anywhere without clone club’s support. Someday I’ll tell you in detail why I adore this show and this cast, but this weekend the feels have been for clone club. So thanks guys. I kind of appreciate it a hell of a lot.
