Subject: this technically the last newsletter?

Okay apparently Ryan says it's not because I'm sending something out on May 8th.

Despite procrastinating these until the latest possible moment, I'm gonna miss doing these. But what I'll miss most is being showered in priase for my literary prowess. (I'm actually trying to see if I could continue these newsletters over the summer, because if I can write something when 99% of the events we planned got cancelled, I can probably write something over the summer. It depends, would people actually be interested in that?)

Oh, super fun story. The other day I woke myself up by literally throwing myself off of my bed. Not fall or roll off, but actually THROWING MY BODY OFF THE BED SO THAT I HIT THE WALL. Just a fun little anecdote for ya.

Sorry about this going out even later than normal (which is already pretty late), I'm watching Schitt's Creek on Netflix after two days of being in a weird headspace where I wasn't really enjoying anything. Too deep? Nah, oversharing is gay culture.

12:00pm 1:00pm Virtual Rainbow Graduation Private Location (rsvp to display)

Ayyyyyyyy it's rainbow graduation next week! If you're a rainbow grad, you can register for the rainbow graduate video and a copy of Queerbook! Oh goodness, I just realized, despite sending out the coming out stories link for months, I never actually submitted my own story. Well, that's okay, because I'm one of the people making it so I can do whatever I want and just put mine in there in really big text.

Expect a special video message from the OUTspoken eboard to the class of 2020 graduates sometime this week! Yeah, I don't know exactly when because everyone needs to film their section, and I need to caption it and edit the video. I'm personally very excited to have fun with filming my section :)

Hm...what else...can't think of anything else right now, but--OH WAIT! So RIT archives is doing a cool thing where they're collecting quarantine stories, whether it's videos, images, text, whatever. I think it would be really cool to get some LGBTQ+ representation up in here. I know for me, I always get a bit of seratonin when I find queer content in places I'm not expecting, so it would be really cool if in the future someone would find that. Should I submit my quarantine newsletters?

Well, I better send this out before it's technically Saturday, so bye!
