I finally finished Bailey's new ref!
Bailey and I had a falling-out, you could say. It wasn't anyone's fault. I just made some dumb decisions regarding friendships and wound up associating him with people I wanted to get away from. I started seeing him as a symbol of things that were ruined for me, of lies, and of things and people I was even afraid of. I finally detached him from that by watching Velvet Goldmine. I thought of him then in such a positive way that I did this, and it was quite therapeutic.
I went to a drag show with a friend last night, and it was also quite therapeutic, just being around so many people my age who were there with not only friends but partners too. It was nice, seeing other lesbians my own age. AND UM, I used to toy with making Bailey a drag persona. I'm tempted to bring that back...we'll see, I suppose.
