Would the five of us always live within a few minutes of that booth? No… But here’s what I discovered: Our booth was wherever the five of us were together.
it probably seems like i cry over stupid shit but tbh i usually end up crying because i’ve stored up all of my upset feelings from multiple things rather than express them and then the littlest thing sets me off like spilling my drink may not be that big of a deal but when i’ve stored up that many negative emotions it feels like i busted a hole in the hoover dam

The U.K. is finally getting its first sitcom focused on trans characters.
The show is called “Boy Meets Girl,” about a guy who falls for a trans woman. And word on the street is that in this show, unlike in many others, her trans identity is NOT a punch line! (It’s sad that this is a big deal.) In fact, Boy Meets Girl was chosen for an award because of its positive portrayal of trans characters.
The sitcom is set in and around the city of Manchester, England, and the series pilot stars trans actress Rebecca Root. The synopsis of the series, which will air in six half-hour episodes on BBC2, seems to suggest a classic romantic sitcom with a trans twist:
"Leo’s had a bad day. He’s been fired (again), is being given a hard time by his mum and, to cap it all, his blind date fails to show up. But then he bumps into Judy and finds himself deeply attracted to this surprising and beguiling woman. They bond over drinks and, unfazed by the fact that there’s a bit of an age gap between them, arrange to meet the following evening. Leo’s mother is unhappy that he’s having dinner with an older woman. But Leo doesn’t care what she thinks; he knows that he’s just met someone very special."
The cast and premiere date have yet to be announced, but BBC says it’s committed to having a trans actress play the lead character. Awesome, awesome, awesome to hear.
