Even though I have now technically joined this site, I feel I have
been a member for quite some time. I have read most of the users'
random journal entries, rants, and poetry. The forums are
always...interesting to say the least. So now I feel I have a worthy
contribution to make to this community.
Well, for a description of myself: I'm an 18 year old senior in high school.
I will be going to college next year in Arkansas. I am "out" to most of my friends,
though not all of them because a few them I feel could not handle it. My best
friend in particular is extremely homophobic and although I have been working
on expanding her horizons, especially in the subject matter of sexuality, her
progress is slow. I am single though I am "talking" to a few people. I am a
perfectionest as well as extremely picky not just about food but about pretty
much everything. My hobbies are playing softball as well as track and field.
I play pick up football with some of my friends, go to movies and party. My
demeanor is usually an uppity, happy one. I do not feel the need to fall into
depression or sadness. I usually view issues in a broad sense (I see the
forrest but not the trees). I am a good listener and a good friend. So, I'm
the friend that people confide in and wants advice from. I am extremely
extroverted and friendly. I have no problems dancing...anywhere! I am a musician.
I jam with my friends on guitar and sing. We're starting a band soon. Honestly,
I feel somewhat awkward saying this because I might be a minority here, but in
school I hang out with what some people call "the popular crowd, the valley
crew, the snobs." But maybe by me sharing my life with you guys, I can split
some of the stereotypes of that crew in everyone's high school. So, next
time you're snickering at the ditzy blonde in the front, you should double think
your reasoning-she may very well identify herself as being in the same
sexuality community as you belong to. Because as you know, us ten percenters
are everywhere :) Well, I'm going to wrap this up now, leave me a comment with
whatever you feel is neccessary or hit me up on my email address
Love you guys!! <3
