“I kind of want to stay home and just be happy and eat ice cream, but on the other hand I really want to march down downtown and sing and dance, because this week is one of the happiest in my life.
Birthdays and Christmas never really meant much to me. This week… This is who I am. And I LOVE it. I’m so happy. I’m so happy to be alive. I love it. I love myself. I love that I’m ace, and I love that I am me.
I love all of you strangers. I love this beautiful earth. I want to jump with joy and sing and dance and cry. Right now, nothing makes me happier than just being alive.
I don’t say any of this very often, because life is cold and hard and it ends. So just this once. Just this week. I’m going to be happy to exist. I’m going to be happy that we all exist.
I love myself.”
