It's a depressing thought that only devoted veterans of Oasis will even recognize the name "stars and nothing." It's me, Emily, your old friend!
I feel like an outsider here now. Creepy, isn't it? Like visiting your old hometown to see it overrun with strange faces. Not that I don't welcome new people- in fact, Niks and ACCGirl and I used to be sort of an Oasis welcome wagon. Whenever a new kid came in, we'd comment on their first post and say how glad we were, etc. I used to post like everyday... check out some of my old journal entries. I used to be cool, I swear.
Well, how are the new people finding Oasis? A good place to run to? It's so therapeutic, isn't it? Sharing your experiences with other scared and confused and angry people. Or accepting and caring and welcoming people. I hope you all find it as helpful as I did when I first came here. The reason I stopped coming here and posting, I guess, is that I really didn't need it so much anymore. I'm more comfortable with myself now, and it's easier to talk about it with friends in person than on the computer. Oasis is a really important transition phase, between admitting your sexuality to yourself and coming out completely.
Well, if anyone doesn't mind, I'd be interested to learn the ropes of Oasis again now that school's out; sort of get a feel for who the main characters are, the good writers, the frequent flyers, so to speak. If some nwe kid's stepped in and filled my shoes as the resident princess of Oasis, I'd be interested in talking to you. Feel free to email me, IM me, or leave comments. I bet you guys are all cool and I'll be making the rounds, reading your journals and stuff. It feels good to be back! Hi Adrian!
