It’s been a while since I have last checked in. It’s December and the year is almost over, I can’t really believe it. The things that have changed this year, the things I have seen, that have been accomplished, the people I’ve encountered, the experiences I hope to never forget. I can’t believe. This year really is one that I am personally proud of. This was my first full year 100% independent from my parents. Let me start out with some rather exciting and big news for me. On November 22nd (My 20th birthday) I came out of the closet to my parents, for those of you reading who are slow, I told my parents that I am gay. This was a huge step in my life and one that was way more difficult than I could have ever imagine. It was an emotional experience for sure. My mom seems to be alright with it and is accepting it for what it is, although we both have differing opinions on whether I was born this way or not, she obviously sides for the choice side of the argument, which I do NOT believe at all. My dad, well I haven’t talked to him since. He was not happy at all, in fact he cried, the entire length of the conversation. He said a lot of mean and hurtful things to me. I expected ugly, but I didn’t expect tears. It was a very heavy conversation, my best friend and Room Mate at the time Brad was in the room when I made the phone call (yes I called, I was stuck at work all day, but promised myself I would do it that day), and he heard the entire thing. The air got really thick as soon as I let the cat out of the bag, and then I heard my dad crying, and the air only got thicker. I won’t go on to explain anymore, that is up to your imagination, or you could shoot me an e-mail, or write in the comments. But It’s over and done with, I never have to look back to the closet again and I feel so much better, so much happier, like I can finally start living my life the way want, without having to worry about changing stories up, or inventing people, or explaining why I haven’t had a girlfriend. That life is behind me. I am now free from that burden.
In other news, I am Living back in Chico. I forget what I wrote about previously, but I know I have mentioned that I was planning to quit my job, which just so you know didn’t happen. Long story short, I was offered a job, and I turned it down, and then I was offered a better job with a nice raise, so I took it. So far things are going good except for the fact that I don’t really care for one of my other associates, who is a controlling bitch to put it LIGHTLY. She tries to manage the department and does not seem to respect that I am her new Lead. Yuck. Oh well, things are going to change. Just a little bit more training to go and I can really focus on everything and get the department looking real good.
My beard is gone as well. I’ll probably be smooth faced for a while to come unfortunately, but at the same time it doesn’t bother me so much. I’m trying to change a lot of things about my life, including a new wardrobe, which is much needed.
That’s all for now, take care everybody who reads.
