Well, my semester in DC is almost over. I will miss many aspects, but I need to get out of the city for a while, I have no money left, and I didn't have much to begin with (the joys of being a poor college student), and I've been beyond stressed by the damn bureaucracy and profs who have no clue. But I've met fab ppl.
I'm also pumped about the Democrats taking the majority in the House and Senate. It's been a zoo here for the last 3 months, and it will be getting even crazier in January, right before session begins in February.
Anyhoo, I haven't been on for a long time because my mom found out, and she doesn't believe me. As soon as I told her, she started taking me to Catholic Singles. Can I say AWKWARD! I spent most of the time trying not to get caught checking out some of the women there!!! It was awful. And so I've been pretty low-key about my sexuality lately.Only my cousin, who is also a lesbian, knows. I'm back on now because I feel much more confident about my sexuality and what it means. It doesn't have to control me, and I'm going to live my life and see what happens
BUT, there is good news....It turns a girl who I've had a crush on back at school admitted she has feelings for me, and I told her the extent of my feelings for her. It was fantastic, but nerve-racking. For the first time in my life, I'm going to be the experienced one. I never thought that would happen. She's never kissed anyone. I feel so much pressure, because my first kiss was hell on Earth (it was with a guy, so no wonder!), to not screw up. I want this to work so bad, and even though we're going to go slow, it's still going to be odd because I'm also actually getting what I want.
So yeah, that's what's been going on in my life. I am always looking for advice, so anything is helpful.
