Those capital letters make it seem special, don't they? :)
Yesterdays weather was fantastic. It was overcast, and for some reason I enjoy those days the most. The clouds were low and moving fast, a signal of a storm on the horizon. It was windy and warm. It was blissful. I felt so happy then, and I know not why. Probably because, innately, I knew that today was going to be below-freezing and our first snowy day. Yes, Lilyprodigious, I had my first snowy day. And I'm not too proud of it.
School is going great. I registered for my classes for second semester and I'm excited.
My friend from a school in Ohio got off last Friday for Thanksgiving break and she came to visit me and a couple of other friends here at IU. It was great to see her. But I was also lunching with my friend, her boyfriend, another friend, and her boyfriend too. It should have been me with my boyfriend as well. Needless to say I felt like the fifth wheel. Never a fun feeling. But I pretended that Ryan Phillippe was my boyfriend while we were watching Cruel Intentions.
I leave tomorrow for Thanksgiving with my family in Ohio and, as much as I'm looking forward to it, this get-together with the fam might be the time I come out to all of them. I know that one of my aunts asked my gram if I was gay and my aunt is going to be there, so she might ask me then. She'll be cool with it and I'm sure the whole family will be okay with it, but it'll still be awkward after that.
I can't wait to be out to all of them, though. It will certainly be a release for me and maybe them. And who knows, maybe my outing will prompt others to come out too. Although none of my relatives are pinging. Maybe it's because I know all of them too well that they elude my gaydar.
Thanks to my parents for being supportive of me. I know that you guys had to reform your stereotypes, and that is a lot to do, but thanks for doing that and doing that with little resistance. I also want to thank you guys for paying for me all thoughout my life and especially for college. I'm having a great time here!
Thanks to my friends who have been there for me. Thanks to all my fag hags who made high school bearable. Thanks for loving me regardless.
Thanks to the year 2004 for being so close. Without you, I don't know if I'd ever endure the Bush theocracy.
Thank you for reading this far. My writing isn't too eloquent.
Thank you Adrian and Jeff for all your help in getting Oasis off the ground. You guys persevered every time that Oasis crashed and saw it go from infancy to rebirth many times over. In fact, you could almost call this a rennaisance with all the new and old people posting so much. Ay de mi.
Thanks for everything that has gone right in my life. You give me hope. Thanks for everything that has gone wrong in my life, too. You give me reality checks and help me see my errors. "Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first and the lessons afterwards." unknown
What are you thankful for?
