I’m just your average gay Latino immigrant living in Orange County and blogging about all the randomness in my life. I am 23 years old and a recent graduate of San Francisco State University. I have little experience with blogging, so please take that into consideration when reading my posts.

  1. Hey Eddy! thanks for liking my blog, I wanted to check yours out as well. It can be hard putting yourself out there, but please don’t hesitate. I come from a conservative family so I know how it feels to be worried about what people might say or think of the things you write. Remember to write for yourself, write to be free, and wright because that’s where your heart is! Congrats on this new chapter in your life.

    • Thanks for the inspiring words Deanna. I’m hoping that through this blog I will be able to learn more about myself and put things into perspective. I am really grateful that you took time out of your schedule to comment. I will post more soon and I am excited to read about your food blogs. I love food! 🙂

  2. Hey, Eddy! Thanks for liking my post. I enjoy reading what you have written so far. When I first signed up here, I wasn’t thinking about what anyone would think of my posts. This is basically like a public diary for me. I just vented about whatever came to mind without thinking that other people would actually read it, lol, because I have so much on my mind. Then I met some friends on here and it took off from there. Word Press is fun once you get used to it. I’m still navigating my way around here although I’ve been here for just two months now I think.

    Looking forward to some more of your posts.. Nice to meet you.

    • Nice to meet you too Xin or Francesa? I’m still getting used to WordPress, but I like writing posts so far. I can actually see that you have plenty on your mind and I like that. Congratulations on getting your book published! I can’t wait to hear more from you.

      • Thanks. 🙂 I’m also working on an extensive novel. This one might take a while to get published because I want to make it into a real paperback book, too. Francesca is my Pen Name, but my real name is Jessica, haha. Will definitely let you know whenever I am able to Publish my novel.


  3. Hey Eddy. Thanks for liking my post on my slavery to math.

    I’m actually quite new to blogging, started like in the middle of the year. I was really procrastinating about starting a blog. And now I loved it.

    Nice to know you!


    • I liked it because I honestly don’t like math too much and I could relate. Keep on blogging. I’m also fairly new to blogging and I hope you find it as enjoyable as I do. Nice to know you as well.


    • Thank you. I’ll try to be as humble and honest as I possibly can. Thank you for reading my blog. Much love.

  4. You don’t need experience to blog. Just do it. I didn’t know there was an “average gay latino immigrant living in Orange County.” I guess I’m just your average old gay “Caucasian, not Hispanic” living in Dallas, Texas. We have at least two things in common!

  5. Hey Eddy! Thank you for liking my blog! I checked yours out as well and I have to say, I loved your candor and what you had to say. Please keep on writing from your heart because it really shows in your writing. 😀

  6. Hey Eddy!! I have just been reading some of your posts and I wanted to say that I think you’re an excellent writer. Each one of your posts has me fully immersed in the words and I just wanted you to know that. 😉

  7. I appreciate you stopping by and “liking” one of my recent posts Eddy. I’ve enjoyed studying your blog as well: what you feel, how you think, how you see the world. Your hopes and dreams. Your obstacles, fears and mistakes. As you record your story, you will comfort and strengthen many in ways you may never know. We are not alone. Thank you for your sharing and openness. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your journey!

  8. Thank you for liking my most recent post. And thank you for being willing to share yourself with the rest of us. I wish you all the best in this journey called life. (Very cliche I know.) 😀

  9. Eddy, there’s no such thing as “your average gay latino immigrant living in Orange County.” Even if any one of those characteristics were not true, you would not be “average.” You are unique and interesting. Your blog is brave and fun to read. Thank you for noticing my blog, “Me, senescent.” I think an interesting old, white, gay man living in Dallas and a fascinating, fun young Latino gay man living in Orange County should keep in touch and read each other’s writing and encourage each other. Harold

  10. Eddy, in many ways I can totally relate. I come from a very conservative background, and often feel very lost on my progress as a gay man. While many friends around me seem content with the drinking/clubbing/swinging sorta lifestyle, I wonder if there isn’t something much more fitting for me.
    I’ve had my own bad boyfriends and bad decisions, which brought me back to my hometown–single and HIV positive at 25. It would be easier if I could blame my status wholly on being young, dumb, and full of cum; but I was flat-out lied to by someone who knew he was poz and just wanted to get laid. I’m unimpressed with much of the gay “world” out there, and my only solution so far has been to remember that there is someone else out there, in a world of 6 billion people, who might be looking for the same things. Damaged goods and all.
    As I read your posts, I feel like some of them could have been my words. I don’t publish my face and real name to protect myself, but I can tell you that how alone I felt before my HIV is NOTHING compared to how alone the gay community makes me feel now.
    My only advice to myself (and I guess to you) is to remember that we attract the things we seek. Thus, I try to remember to do the things that I like to do, even if they’re by myself. Maybe someday I’ll be adventuring by myself when I run into a real man who is there doing the same things. Maybe he will be as frustrated as I am, and not wrapped up in dick sizes. That would be a more valuable relationship to me than all the fantastic sex in the world!
    Don’t despair too much. Though your anguish makes for great writing, I know you are a valuable person with many good qualities. It shines through your writing and monologue. Just hang on and someday, someone will recognize your charm in the way you want them to.

  11. Hello Eddy, I just recently received your like and follow onto my blog.Thank you so much for the follow and like. Honestly this made my day. It is hard to get people to read your material and understand the heart of what we want to say. I’ve just been going through your blog and I think its brilliant! My blog talks about a whole lot of different subjects but my main idea is to get my thoughts out there.

    Thank you for writing so honestly and truthfully to yourself. Being a storyteller is not easy unless we can express our own story of ourselves and this is a good way to do that. I hope that you will that one person you can honestly say those special words to you, the words that make you weak at the knees and all giddy. When that time happens you will know deep in your heart. And don’t be so hard on yourself. You are young and life will bring on many things for you. Keep writing and being true to yourself and write from you heart.

    I am Paddy by the way, I live in Cambodia but I actually come from New Zealand, I’m Maori the indigenous peoples of New Zealand. I’ve been living in Cambodia for 10 years now working with Human Rights related projects. Anyway this is me in small doses. Okay please keep writing and I look forward to your next reflections.

  12. Hey Eddy. Thanks for liking my post. I’m digging the humility, honesty and openness in your posts.

    I’m new to blogging and procrastinated starting it for several months, but I’m finally starting to put my self out there. Thanks for reading.


  13. Hey! Thanks for liking my post on my blog, “Worst Week Ever”

    I just read a few of your previous posts and…damn…what a great blog. Have you ever thought about sending some of your posts to Thought Catalog? I feel like you’d find an even broader audience there, considering how deep and personal, yet relatable your content it, especially to a younger LGBT demographic.

    Anyway, cheers! All the best.

    • Hello. No, I haven’t thought about sending posts to Thought Catalog. Especially because I do not know what that is or how to go about sending them posts lol

  14. I just wanted to stop in and say hello. I read your last post and you have some good advice. I had one of the longest stretches of singleness and sometimes it’s lonely for sure. He’s out there for you, and I know it. Real quick, where was that cover photo taken? Sooooo beautiful–no oceans in this area of the west 😉

  15. Our life is what we think of it. Stay positive and don’t let things get you down. Be honest with yourself and follow your heart – it will lead you to what you are looking for at proper time. Just arm yourself with patience 😉

  16. We all have to begin somewhere and documenting your life experience is the best way to start. I’ve only had the time to read a few of your posts and am impressed with all I’ve seen thus far. I am following you now and know that I’ll return soon and often. Much love and naked hugs, buddy! 🙂

  17. Eddy, I’m honored that you quickly viewed my blog. Enjoyed reading your recent posts and About page. Nice to see others giving you ‘awards’ as well. Just keep writing as you have, its the one thing I enjoy myself, is that I am just myself here. Others will judge, make good and bad comments, but for me the written word is a passion. No one can take away or change that passion, except yourself. So, my cute Latino, enjoy being gay, being a writer/blogger and mostly enjoy being YOU! Hugs from a 50 year old other Latina with a side of Irish. Beso.

  18. Hi Eddy!Thank you for checking out and liking my blog (Converse with Kurti)! All the best to your writing endeavors (I’ve started following you because I was piqued by your work and I look forward to reading more).

  19. Hi Eddy! Thanks for liking my post. I’m a bit new in wordpress and not yet certain how to make my blog interesting. I hope to make surprises in it in the coming weeks. Your blog is awesomely honest and you have my admiration. Keep up!

  20. Oy Eddy, about all this time you have on your hands – if it’s bothering you, have you ever thought about buying a digital watch – they haven’t got any “hands” – oh and by the way mate, you can wear it on your wrist and that should also help with the hand problem too – and cheers for your like on 0025A – did you read my Latino story 0024 – you might like that one and you could proof read my Spanish for me too!!

    Charlar más tarde, amigo!

  21. Hey there Eddy. Thanks for liking my most recent blog. I’ve been reading some of what you have posted and it brings back painful reminders of my coming out as a gay man way back in the mid 70’s. If it provides you any hope and comfort my life partner Roy and I met in 1978. I won’t kid you that it’s always been easy but it’s hard for me to imaginge life without him. Besides my blog I have a website http://www.EdHartnett.com which includes a lengthy autobiographical sketch, warts and all. I’ll plan to read more of your writings here. 🙂

  22. Eddy! We must be meant to be blogger buddies, because I had a different blog on here before, and you followed me on there as well! Of course I chose to remain anonymous on that one. But how strange! When I saw that you liked my post, I thought … “no way, what are the odds the same Eddy would come across my blog once again????”
    Thank you for the like by the way, and good luck with everything. I’ve always enjoyed reading your content 🙂

  23. I read your post on your first encounter. I had first sexual encounter over 29 years ago. I can still remember it like it was yesterday. I also felt empty and confused. I have (as you well know) decided to turn my life around and be celibate. The gay lifestyle for me was very lonely; even more lonely than that of being celibate. It was very confusing time for me; it left me feeling cold and alone on a very deep level that is unexplainable.

    I have nothing much to say except just be happy with who you are. I am 25 years older than you and I am old enough to be your father. I would; as I believe he would, wish you the best. Remember be happy, live life well, be adventurous and don’t let anyone tell you who you are. You only find yourself with a lot of soul searching. Anything can be changed, anything you choose to change; that is.

    contact me if you want @ nltnd1@live.com

  24. Hi Eddy, Thank you for visiting my blog. I too am a newcomer to the blogging world. I have been doing this for less than a year and it hasn’t been consistent, I enjoy reading blogs and writing. I write way more than I post. I am looking forward to reading more of your blog.

    Thanks, B
