I just wanted to make a quick post to say a big thank you to everyone! This year my Christmas inbox when completely nuts, and two days post Christmas I’m still replying to your wonderful emails. So thank you to everyone who’s reached out.
Firstly, I want to say that for those who still haven’t had a proper reply, I am definitely still working my way through the inbox. There’s been so many emails this year, I was a little overwhelmed! But in a good way.
Some people email in a simple “Merry Christmas”. Others tell me more about themselves, or their year, or even an interesting fact about their town.
It’s always fun to read. I grew up learning that Christmas is a time of giving, sharing and all round wholesomeness. I definitely feel that when reading through some of the emails I get!
Occasionally, there is a really sad email the comes through. It always hits me in the heart when I read these, but I also feel honoured that some people are able to open up about their troubles.
It’s hard to talk about difficult things, especially when it feels like the whole world wants to tell you what to do and how to fix it. It can be even harder in the holiday season to be in a bad place, when the world is so adament on you being full of holiday cheer.
What I want to say is, you’re not alone. At least, not truly alone. I don’t know if anyone can be. Whether it’s reaching out to lost friends or family, working up the courage to go out and meet someone new, or simply emailing a pornstar over the internet – you’re definitely, truly, never 100% alone.
Reading through some of the emails, it’s also made me appreciate my own family a lot. I had a lovely Christmas, and ate goose, slept and watched Christmas films. All-in-all it wasn’t the most exciting of days, but just being able to lounge around with my family, it felt very good. It’s not something I’ve had much time to do this year, but I’m so lucky and happy that I was able to.
So here is to wishing everyone had a good Christmas! Or at least a sort of decent one. Here’s to hoping we all have a fantastic New Year! May 2018 be filled with more wholesomeness.
I’ve got a lot of big plans for the New Year, including a big push on cosplay. I’m hoping to get a new cosplay photoset up within the first week of January. Happy New Year everyone!
