A Transgender’s Horrid High School Story

At the bottom of this page, you will find a link to a story about a transgender man names Casey Hoke, who went through some horrid harassment during his time at DuPont Manual High School, right here in the heart of Louisville Metro.

He was a senior back in 2015 when his principal, Jerry Mayes, saw him coming out of the men’s bathroom, confronted him, and began questioning him about things that were honestly none of the principals business!

The article is gut wrenching, if I do say so myself. I instantly became full of anger. First of all, if you see a ‘problem’ with a student, you take it up with the students parents, you don’t take matters into your own hands and begin questioning things in their personal life, I don’t care how old the student is.

But it doesn’t stop there. He did more than ask the student what procedures he’s had on his genitalia, — yeah you heard me correctly, he asked those kinds of questions— he also had multiple meetings with his teachers regarding the subject, even though they were already aware of Casey’s situation, due to the fact that an article about his story was posted in the school board a couple of years prior.

When asked by Casey, why any of this would concern him, all he was able to mumble out was “if I get into trouble because of you…”

excuse my French, but how fucking disgusting are we trying to be in the year 2017? Or even 2015??? Plus, if everyone literally knew about it since his freshman year and hasn’t complained, then where would the problem be? Besides in your own small minded brain? …

Anyways, In this article, you will also see that the principal also called teachers “cute” little pet names, even after they asked him not to, which made said teachers feel very uncomfortable. And let’s not even dig into the fact that he strongly opposed Manual’s Black Student Union & Gay Straight Transgender Alliance, but made sure to take full credit for.

If you ask me, I think this so called principal should be let go. He overstepped many boundaries within a single year of holding his position. He doesn’t deserve the title. He clearly has some issues he needs to work out before taking on such a big responsibility of making sure a building full of students and teachers are all well taken care of.

I’m very happy to help spread Casey’s word and to help bring light to the situations we face here in Louisville.

I had my own incidents in middle and high school, so I know it’s bigger than one school or one person. Time for Louisville to step into the new millennium.

iPhone: Plus Size or X?!

I’m pretty sure I do these comparisons every year because I am most definitely an apple guy!

I am actually going to be getting a new phone soon, & of course I will be sticking with apple, but I struggle between the two new models that just dropped, so I figured we could make this a fun exercise were we go through to compare & contrast them together!

I am all about big phones. The first big model I got was clearly the 6 Plus, then I upgraded to the 6S Plus, which is why I am only looking at the 8 Plus and the X models.

Looks wise, the iPhone X just takes my breath away. It’s literally all glass, but that’s also its downfall, it shatters so easily, as reports have said. Of course I would get the most fabulous phone case to put it in, but I’m also the kind of person who likes to take it out every now & then just to enjoy it in its natural form, so this could be very concerning for me.

iPhone X & The 8/8 Plus models

Another cool thing about the X model is that it has a 5.8” super retina HD display screen, whereas the iPhone 8 Plus model only has a .5” retina HD display screen. What is the difference? There is no home button on the X model!

But for the 8 Plus model, it’s actually larger than the X model. The 8P is 6.24” by 3.07” whereas the X model is 5.65” by 2.79”. So the 8P model is winning in that department.

iPhone X

The X model only comes in two colors at this time: Silver & space grey. I’m not a fan. I’ve had a white & gold phone ever since I switched to apple. The 8P comes in silver, space grey, & gold. Again, the 8P is winning.

Both models are installed with 12MP wide angle and telephoto cameras, along with the dual optical image stabilization, so no matter which route I take, my selfie game will still be strong! But there is a difference in terms of the front facing cameras. For the X model, it’s a TrueDepth camera, & for the 8P, it’s just the FaceTime HD Camera. The front camera for the X also has portrait mode, lighting, and Animoji, whereas the 8P does not.

As far as the ID installments, the 8P model has the touch ID with passcode, but the X model has the Face ID with passcode… I’m not sure how I feel about the face recognition. I’m in the middle about it. It’s cool from a technology standpoint, but also very abrasive in the privacy department.

iPhone 8 Plus

I have been waiting for years with this one right here! Both models are equipped for wireless charging! My friend has Samsung, and his phone was equipped with this back in 2015, & I’ve been in love with it ever since. About damn time, Apple.

The capacity for both models only come in 64GB and 256GB, so either way, I’ll be getting a tremendous upgrade from my typical 16GB storage!

GAAAAH!! It really is hard to decide between the two! Which model sticks out the most to you guys?! Let me know!

The Greyhound Experience

I would like to take some time out to talk about my experience riding the greyhound for the very first time.

My dad and I had to return to Jersey for a short time to get our place in order. We were going to fly, but due to the fact that it was last minute, our plane tickets would’ve ran us at $800+ a ticket, which was a definite no for us. We checked out the bus fare, and it was only $350 for both round trip tickets, way cheaper by all means, also, I love riding or cruising, because I love seeing the country for what it is, so we went with the obvious winner.

Now, the fun stuff. We left around 6pm on a Wednesday afternoon. Within 10 minutes of being in the Louisville station, this homeless man got up in these young girls’ faces and started screaming at them, begging for money because they didn’t understand full English. During this process, me and this random guy made eye contact, he stood up and took his shirt off while I grabbed my pepper spray… Yeah, we thought it was going to go down. The homeless guy began to back up, walked over to another guy, asked him for his soda, got rejected, and left the station.

We’re off to a good start, aren’t we?

Cut to our 12 hour bus ride to Cleveland, Ohio where we had to wait for 2 hours for our next bus that took us to Newark. Up to his point, I was sitting with my dad, so even though the bus is uncomfortable, it was a little more comfortable sitting with him. But when we had our transfer in Cleveland, we got separated due to being previously crowded. So I had to sit next to this guy, who constantly overtook his seat, as well as part of mine. I was NOT happy. But my dad was next to me, just across the aisle, so it wasn’t completely terrible. 8 hours later we finally made it to Newark, New Jersey. The bus ride there took 19 hours, mind you, by car, it only takes 12! I was tired as all get out!

But the real fun is all in our returning trip, so strap in, because here we go.

Our departing trip back to Louisville began at 6 pm as well. We departed from Pennsylvania Station, which we’ve never been in. We literally traveled up three flights of stairs with 5 things of luggage, walked through the entire station, before realizing that the area we needed was right where we entered the first time… Oh boy, perfect start yet again.

Thankfully, we were first in line for our bus, so we were able to sit together, which eased my anxiety. I will go ahead and mention now that we rode side by side during this entire trip back to Louisville.

Now, we were supposed to reach Cleveland at 4 am, with a two hour wait, meaning our next bus was departing at 6 am. But, the worst damn thing happened during our trip. We were literally in dead, stand still traffic on the Pennsylvania highway, for literally two damn hours. We didn’t reach Cleveland until 6:30 am. Yep, we missed our bus. The next bus to Louisville wasn’t due until 2:30 in the damn afternoon! I was so not happy. But my dad and I made the best of it, because we took the time to go and explore Cleveland, which is a very pretty and innovative city. But that will be in a YouTube video so I won’t disclose those details just yet. But the best part of Cleveland was, as soon as we landed, dad went in line to get our tickets revised, and during the time, my ass went outside to smoke. From the 5 seconds it took me to walk out those doors, 4 people walked up to me and asked for money. I’m not lying when I tell you all that two of them were hookers, and the man was just released from prison. I had no time or patience. But the ex-prisoner was very respectful, which was relieving.

Our bus finally arrived and we had a nice, chill ride to Cincinnati. Along the way, we met these lovely and hysterically funny New York women. We literally sat in front of them, so our time was smoothed out with great conversation.

When we got to Cincinnati, we had another 2 hour wait, which I was so not happy about because we got to Cincinnati at 7 pm, which is 6 hours later than the time we were originally supposed to be in Louisville – our original bus, that we missed due to Pennsylvania traffic, would’ve had us in Louisville at 1 pm, but the new bus was scheduled to have us there at 11 pm – but during our two hour wait, we had three more people come up and beg for money. I ignored every single one, because again, I was not in the mood. We stayed with the New York ladies because we all just clicked so well. We were filling each other in on our personal lives and what not, and I even know where they live in New York, so we plan on visiting when we return!

The time ticked away, and we finally got on our bus. I’m not sure how I feel about the bus driver… This older man, who was clearly special, in the most respectful way, was trying to get to his location, and the bus driver just kind of shunned him away. But our bus was indeed our bus. So when we took off, literally 2 minutes from the station, the older gentleman was telling the driver that his luggage isn’t on the bus. No joke, the driver pulled over, kicked the guy off the bus, and told him he couldn’t get back on. This literally tore my heart. The gentleman had to walk back to the compound in the dead of night.

I was giddy from here on out, because I know the route of Cincinnati to Louisville like the back of my hand. So I was able to reminisce during the final parts of our trip.

We hit Louisville a little after midnight, just 28 hours after we left Jersey, and I ran as fast as I could out of those Louisville station doors!

It’s safe to say that, I do not plan on returning to any greyhound station again.

Hurricane Harvey

On August 25th of 2017, hurricane Harvey, the first major atlantic hurricane of the season, touched the Texas land as a category 4 tropical storm. It has caused massive devastation to the city of Houston, as well as other surrounding cities along the southeastern coast, such as Galveston & Corpus Christi. It will even travel to parts of Louisiana, such as Lafayette. But thankfully, I think it will be safe to say that New Orleans will dodge this one.
12 years ago, Louisiana saw major devastation when hurricane Katrina hit, & now we are seeing the same destruction in Texas. Much like Louisiana, specifically New Orleans, Houston is low-lying with a lot of bayous & prone to flooding.
There’s been so much focus on the city of Houston, that it sincerely bothers me because other cities got hit first. A part from Corpus Christi & Galveston, Missouri City, Rockport, Edna, & Victoria were also hit. There are thousands of Texans without power along the coast. There are at least 15 deaths so far in the USA, as well as 1 in Guyana. God be with everyone who has been devastated by this tropical storm.
A good friend of mine, Cassandra, lives in San Antonio, & thankfully she has stated that there has been very little rain so far, & that their biggest issue was medium to high winds.
Harvey started developing on August 17th, to the east of the Lesser Antilles, which began crossing through the Windward Islands, passing just south of Barbados & Saint Vincent. It just passed Columbia to the north when it entered the Caribbean Sea. It then became the category 4 tropical hurricane, before hitting Rockport, Texas on the 25th.
In Honduras, a green alert was issued for the Atlántida, Islas de la Bahía, Colón, Cortés, Gracias a Dios, Olancho, and Yoro departments. About 7.87 in of precipitation was expected along the coast, while inland areas were forecast to receive 2.76 to 3.15 in of rain. This matters to me because this is where my dad’s family is located.
A wide range of the eastern world has dealt with the wrath of Harvey. I again, hope and pray that everyone remain safe while the devastation continues, & may the ones that lost their lives rest easy in peace.

My First Gay Wedding! 🌈

Today was a remarkable, unforgettable day for my best friend from high school. She married her best friend, her partner, her first love, her other half. I know it sounds corny, but trust me, it's factual af!

I tell them all the time that they're an inspiration and they're the type of "couple" goals that I want to achieve when in a relationship. I swear it's like something out of a Disney movie!

Their wedding was so beautiful. It was held at the Red Orchard Barn & Park, which is located in Shelbville, Kentucky. The scenery was so aesthetic, calming and peaceful. You had the horses in the background, eating the greenest of green grass that I have probably ever seen, the wind blowing just right, while bouncing off the mountainous hills in the distance.

I wish I had a ton of photos to show you all what I'm talking about, but I was real focused on actually being in the moment for my girl. It's something I really didn't want to miss.

The reception was just as lovely. It was located inside the barn! How many people can say that they held a kick a** party in a barn?… ok maybe a few, but I can tell you not many city folks can say that!

From the music, to the games, to the sweetest rainbow cake you have probably ever seen, you can tell their hearts where in it 110% there was so much love and laughter in that barn that it could've powered the world.

Let me just say, if you have yet to attend an LGBT wedding, then I highly suggest that you do, because you're not living right!

To be able to actually witness two people who love each other to finally be able to be together as one through holy matrimony and see their happiness fill the room as they get to share a moment like this that was once labeled as only for "straight" people, is something you can't gain from a television or a newspaper article.

#WalkerDownTheAisle 8/12/17 a successful love story! Congratulations to the both of you, my sweet darlings!
❤️🌈💙🌈💛🌈💚🌈💜🌈💖

If anyone has any free time, make sure to give them a shoutout somewhere! Just use that lovely hashtag: #WalkerDownTheAisle 😘😘😘

Throwback Fantasy

I have been playing the very original final fantasy for three days now, and I absolutely love it.

This apposes to be a shock to even myself, as I was never really a final fantasy kind of gamer. I only like the 13th addition to the game, and it was because of the graphics.

But we have the NES, so I figured I would try it out, just to see how it was, and I've been playing it ever since.

I'm not very far into the game. I just made it to level 4 magic spells. But I kick some major butt with my team! I have the fighter, black belt, red and white mages. So my team is all in for the win.

I put some sentimental effort into them as well. For instance, Im the fighter, my brother is the black belt, my mother is the red mage, and my father is the white mage. So it's a family team setting out to make the world a better place! Corny? Sure, but filled with emotions? Hell yeah.

At first I really hated it, for the fact that the miss ratio is quite high. But, once you level your players up and obtain better weapons, the damaging effects get a lot better.

No lie, I'm like 10 hours into the game and I'm only at the second castle! Meaning, I'm preparing to fight Dracula, for all of you final fantasy players, you know where I'm at. But you almost have to put so much time into it, because it's not that easy collecting thousands of coins to get all the items you need! Level 4 items are 4000 coins! Depending on what you battle, you can bring in anything from 30g to 300g.

I must say though, that I have fallen for the game. I wouldn't say that I'm going to set out and play all 15 additions, but I'm going to enjoy my time beating the original.

That's what I love about the NES, all the original classics are there and I have tried many of them already.

I've beat the very first Zelda, super Mario 3, Dr. Mario, while working on Kirby, being on the final level of StarTropics, and now final fantasy. I've also played around with Donkey Kong, which is another favorite of mine.

What kind of games do you enjoy? Let me know below!

The thing that I admire most about this woman, is her will to be herself, no matter how goofy, funny, wild, loud, or crazy it may be. She is always herself & it draws so many people to her. She is never afraid to express how she feels, no matter who you are! Haha.

My mother is the type of woman that will do any & everything for you, even if you don’t ask her. She is such a caring person, she would literally give you the shirt off of her back if she felt that you needed it. She longs for her family and for love. She loves having connections with people. She’s actually a lot better than me; even if someone screws her over, she will forgive them and work on reconnecting with them, whereas I will cut them out of my life & keep it moving. She’s stronger in that aspect, because she can learn to forgive and move on. I strive to be like her when I grow up.

Mommy & Daddy, 2013

 

My mother was finally blessed by God when she met my daddy, & so was he. He is the most caring, loving, hard working man that I have ever met. He is her knight in shining armor, as well as mine. In a lot of ways, he healed our family; My mother got someone who actually loves and appreciates her, & I got a loving father who loves & accepts me unconditionally, & in return he got a family who loves & appreciates everything about him. Four years ago, our family circle became complete.

My mother deserves the best in life, she’s fought so hard for so long, its time that she got some more enjoyment out of life. She has many more decades to live through, & so many more unforgettable memories to make. A new chapter is beginning for her, as well as daddy & I. Soon enough we will be living our lives permanently in New Jersey, & she will be surrounded by her loving family, where we will laugh, go crazy, see new parts of the world, and burry our new house with our love.

PS! I WANT TO LET IT BE KNOWN THAT MY MOTHER HAS ALSO BEEN SMOKE FREE FOR 2 MONTHS NOW! After many years of fighting the disease, she finally put them down one night and never picked one up again. Like I’ve stated, this is one strong woman! CONGRATULATIONS MOMMA! I KNEW YOU COULD DO IT!

Everyone send my lovely mother some birthday love today!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMA! I LOOOOOOVE YOOOOU

A Weekend With The Boys

It has officially been a week since I’ve been in Louisville, & it has been one hell of a busy week, let me tell you! But its been very nice. I’ve traveled around parts of the town and have seen the changes that have taken over the one of a kind Derby City. I haven’t done much yet, for the fact that since I’ve been in town, there has been responsibilities that had to be taken care of.

But I’m here to talk about my weekend. My Saturday was supposed to be spent with my two great friends, Jacye & Maggie, for their bridal shower since they’re getting married in less than a month! Congratulations to the soon to be married couple!

But sadly, our car broke down Friday evening. I went out to run some errands and the brake lines busted, so I didn’t have any brakes, which scared the living crap out of me, honestly!

So, my uncle, being the most unique mechanic that I’ve ever seen, came over the following morning and began going to work on it. I even stayed by his side for the entire 9 hour work process and help him as much as I could, I even kept him in good company, with great conversation and good music. We spent a total of 12 hours together, due to our intense conversations. I felt so bad, for the fact that I had to miss my friend’s bridal shower, and my uncle missed his friend’s UFC event, but I honestly feel like it was all in God’s plan for us to have that bonding moment together. It was also a great thing to work with him, because I was able to learn more about what to do on a car when something goes wrong. For once in my life, my hands got dirty! Ha-ha.

But that’s not all of it. Sunday was also a fun filled day with my other uncle. Sunday around noon, I realized that there was something wrong with my bicycle, & my other uncle, being the greatest handy man I know, said I could bring it over so he could take a look at it. We spent a good 3 hours working on it, because there was something wrong with the front gears. It was another amazing day, because I was also hands on with him, learning the tools of the trade, to make sure I can keep a future upkeep on my bike. I felt like absolute caca with him as well because he was supposed to work on his car that day, but instead he dedicated his time to helping me trying to solve my problem. Again, my hands got dirty, and I actually like it! I could used to the dirty business.

It was a great weekend, to get dirty with the guys, and to gain the knowledge that I gained. It’s going to come in handy when I’m in New Jersey by myself and won’t have them around to keep everything together for me, ha-ha.

But the best part of it all was spending the quality time with each other, & being able to have that one on one time. I also like to look at it in the way that my father has done a good job in teaching me to handle responsibilities and make sure everything is taken care of. Everything played out the way it was supposed too. I just hope I don’t have to do anymore mechanical type work for a while! Ha-ha.

How was your weekend? Was it as fun and enjoyable as mine?

Meadowlands Fair Night

Everyone had fabulous plans for their independence celebration right? Well so did I! 

I’ve been down for about a month, because I found out in mid June that I have a chronic medical condition. Which is why I haven’t posted much on my website or my YouTube channel lately, because I’ve been fighting the feels. 

But when the Fourth of July came around, my father surprised me with a trip to the meadowlands state fair, which, neither of us have ever attended before! 


This is the very first thing I want to talk about! This mango pineapple drink was the best, sweetest thing I’ve ever tasted! It was well worth the ten dollars. I almost wept tears due to how amazing it was! 

We were at the fair for a good three hours. We played some games, rode the lift around the entire park, and of course had the fabulous carnival food. I got my dad hooked on funnel cakes, so that was a must on the list! 😂

We also got some caramel apples, 4 pounds of candy, and some stuffed animals… yes, you read that correctly. 4 pounds of candy. 

They even had a petting zoo, which is something I never saw at a fair before. They had lemurs, camels, miniature horses, donkeys, goats, elephants, and even a kangaroo! As much as I love animals as well as seeing ones that I wouldn’t see unless I traveled the world, it does break my heart to see wild animals locked up in cages. So I was happy and sad at the same time. You can tell im a good time at the zoo huh? 😂😂😂

The firework show was very nice and powerful. They started as we were nearly off the lift, so we got a small preview up in the sky, that was very impacting! 

Here is my YouTube video regarding the fair! I hope you enjoy. ❤️🇺🇸💙

prideful June 

Every year, in the mont of June, the nation, along with many countries around the world, celebrate the LGBTQ community, & every year, the gays all get together to promote their dignity, equality, and to increase their visibility as a social group. This is know as Gay Pride, which is the positive stance against discrimination and violence towards this group. 

But regardless of why you attend the special LGBTQ events for equality, whether it’s to meet people, party, or for social justice, I think the message we send out is very important. I honestly think people lose track of why we have such a celebratory month to begin with. When I attended pride, I didn’t receive a history lesson, but I will say that I got to see different walks of life, the young mixed with the old, the conservatives mixed with the liberals, so on and so forth, which was an eye opening experience for myself. I’m all for people having a great time, hell, we very much deserve it in my book after all the oppression we have received over the decades, but I think it’s fair that we also get a continual reminder as to why we get to even celebrate. 

Pride outside at the Idaho Capitol

So, let’s jump back to the 1950s and 1960s. This era was extremely repressive for the LGBTQ community. There were no legal or social rights for any of them. We can give much thanks to such organizations like Daughters of Bilitis & Mattachine Society for being the ones to pave the way for our community today. They would carry out pickets known as annual reminders to inform the nation that the LGBTQ community didn’t have any rights whatsoever. These annual reminders began in 1965 & took place each July 4th, outside of Independence Hall in Philadelphia. 

The protesters of this course counted gay men and women to have mental illness, much like we see today, hence Mike Pence, the 45th’s backup. 

The first Pride march in New York City was June 28, 1970. Which was proposed by Craig Rodwell, his partner Fred Sargeant, Ellen Broidy, & Linda Rhodes back in 1969. 

“That the Annual Reminder, in order to be more relevant, reach a greater number of people, and encompass the ideas and ideals of the larger struggle in which we are engaged-that of our fundamental human rights-be moved both in time and location.

We propose that a demonstration be held annually on the last Saturday in June in New York City to commemorate the 1969 spontaneous demonstrations on Christopher Street and this demonstration be called CHRISTOPHER STREET LIBERATION DAY. No dress or age regulations shall be made for this demonstration.

We also propose that we contact Homophile organizations throughout the country and suggest that they hold parallel demonstrations on that day. We propose a nationwide show of support.”

Stockholm Pride Week 2014

We also can’t forget about Brenda Howard, the woman known as the Mother of Pride for her use of coordinating the first march, which went down in history, & covered the 51 blocks to Central Park. She also originated the dea for a week long series of events surrounding Pride day. 

During the same weekend of the NYC march, there were two marches in California: one in L.A. And one in San Francisco, as well as a march in Chicago. Just two years after the first march, 15 more cities/countries joined the Pride March, including Stockholm, Atlanta, & London. 

These legends really paved the way for or community, & I wish they were given more air time. Especially since we have come as far as being able to marry our own now! Our rights are getting higher and higher on the scale, & I’m damn sure they would be all too happy to see what has been accomplished. 

So next time you’re out celebrating Pride, take a moment to realize why you’re able to do it in the first place. When you sip on your beer, make a toast to the ones that made it all possible for us.

Alien Covenant: A Confusing Twist

WARNING**** THERE WILL BE SPOILERS!!!

When I heard about the new Alien movie, I was really hyped, especially when I found out it would be directed by Ridley Scott, who, not only directed Prometheus, but also directed the original Alien back in 1979.

BUT when I watched the movie, I was all types of confused. I am no longer sure where Mr. Scott is taking us. It is hard to tell if this is indeed the prequel set to the original aliens classics, or if this is going to be a whole new set all within itself.

Why do I say that? Because, even though Prometheus and Alien: Covenant are supposed to be set in the past, to show the becoming of the aliens in their pre-Xenomorph form that we know them as, the story line itself does not fit. In Prometheus we learned about the alien ship, and our “creators” who were trying to wipe our and recreate other life forms. Now, we jump into Covenant, and we’re on a completely different planet, where that jackass robot guy spends his time creating and breeding these alien forms to get the form that we know them as, aka, the facehugger, the big, black and slimy aliens, etc. Then the film ends with the robot taking over the surviving ship and adding three of the Xenomorph embryos to the colony collection.

But that is just the thing, in the original Alien, when Ripley’s ship found this alien boat, it was the same boat that we saw in Prometheus… So how do we get back to that point for it to become full circle? Where is that big boat at?

There are so many questions that I have, and to my understanding of the film, there will clearly be another film to come. So maybe that’s when we will come full circle?

It was a great film, a little slow, but worth it. I’m just not a fan of the confusing cliff hangers. But I am sure Ridley Scott knows what he’s doing! If you haven’t seen the film, go see it! I know I left a couple of spoilers, but believe me, there is still a lot to be covered!

Long Beach: A Day with Dad

This will be a short story, since I have covered everything in the video which is posted below!

I just want to say that this day was a truly amazing day! I forgot to mention in the one-on-one video about our pedicure trip, but you will see some of the clips during the adventure part of the video!

We traveled to Union City for Honduran breakfast, through Manhattan to get to the Long Island Rail Road, to Long Beach where we got out our pedicures then went swimming in the Ocean! Well, I went swimming, my father did not. We did both lay out in the sun though, so that’s something, ha-ha.

It was nice to feel the sand between my toes. I made sure to bury myself deep in it!

Speaking of deep in sand, while we were walking across the beach, I saw three people buried up to their face in sand, just having a gay old time. I loved it. One of the girls saw me looking and laughing, so she started laughing too and said “heyyy”, and I waved back. On some real notes, I could definitely be a beach bum!

Of course I got to see my navy & Cargo ships way out in the sea, which just completed my beautiful scenic background as I swam and laid out.

There’s no beach like Long beach.

Get the rest of the adventure from the video below!
