Just came back from doing the SAT II. I was doing Writing, Literature and Chemistry, because I did Maths II and Phyics in October. It was ok, I guess. But now I need to get back to doing regular school work: three oral presentations next week: one spontaneous english presentation, one on whether god exists and one for a debate on whether technology is helping the world. This debate is only to eliminate a number of teams so that the best two will face off in the debating competition. Also have tests in maths and chemistry.
Much more daunting is what's happening tomorrow. I'm going to tell my parents the truth. I can already feel the pressure of it all on my head. It makes my limbs a little shaky, but I know I'll have to perservere. I will have to remind myself about the cause I'm doing this for, meaning I'll probably have a read on the oppression of gay people in the past century today and tomorrow morning.
And after that I'll decide how to let things go from there. Chances are that if a really bad reaction from my parents unsettles me too much, I won't come out at school any time soon. But if they do not upset me to any significant level, I'll need to think about whether I want to come out to everyone this term or next term.
It would probably be a good idea for me to come up with some ways of broaching the topic to my parents today. I thought I had ideas a few days ago, but I've completely forgotten them (I get the feeling I might be confusing dreams with memory about this).
