Well, I've been thinking about something that my therapist brought up briefly during our last session. She knows a woman who is a lesbian, but this woman CHOSE to be a lesbian. Now, let's discuss this. Many of my fellow Oasians insist that no, being gay is not a choice, that you are born gay and that's a part of your being that cannot be changed. But this woman that my therapist was referring to was molested as a child by a male, and raped as a teenager. After such traumatic experiences with men, this woman decided to never trust men and therefore "chose" to be a lesbian. Is this possible, friends? Can one completely transform their lifestyle, the core of their being, everything, and become gay? Do certain experiences with the opposite sex determine how one views their own sexuality?
Anywho, I'm a little sad, because my awesome therapist is going on a maternity leave in 10 weeks. I'm very happy for her, bringing a child into the world, but of course I'm really gonna miss seeing her. She gave me the option of either waiting a couple months and seeing her again once she comes back or to stop coming altogether once she leaves. 10 weeks is a long time, so I don't know how much progress I'll make by then...Still, the thought of not seeing her again is just so weird to think about. It'd be like...graduating from high school or something. Like, "Hey, you've graduated from therapy! You're on your own now!"
I don't like that school is almost over. Summers are mercilessly long and dull, but hopefully this summer will be different. I've made a list of goals I hope to accomplish this summer, things to occupy my time in a healthy, productive way. Last summer all I did was sit around in my pajamas, watching TV and gorging myself with junk food, hiding out in the basement and not once going outside or hanging out with friends. How awful. This summer will be just the opposite.
Also, my sophomore year kinda sucked, to be honest. So much bullshit happened, so many bad experiences...but hey, that means that my junior year is gonna kick some ass! >:D
Has anybody ever listened to/heard of the Gorillaz? I recently discovered them and now I can't stop listening to them. Normally I don't even bother will that kind of music, but they're just so gosh darn different from anything I've ever heard before. You should definitely give them a listen.
