Great memories

Coming out to my best friend (who, strangely was the last person except my parents that I came out to) and her saying she knew, and make a great joke from V for Vendetta.
Colbert mentioning Unitarian Universalits on the Report.
Seeing the Riverwalk in San Antonio. Que bonita!

GAINING CONTROL OF CONGRESS

Awful Moments

Getting a 69 on a math test
Thinking I'd killed my dog (I didn't, but I thought I did... long story)
Not placing at a debate competition
Finding out far too many girls are straight.

06!!

2006 was crazy... in good and bad ways

Great Things:
Falling in love for the first time
Coming out to my friends and part of the family (minus the father) :)
Being accepted
Loving my senior year
Being recruited for soccer

Not so Great Things:
Finding that 90% of the world really is straight.... big bummer
Failing more math tests than i can count
Finding out that some people can't admit their sexuality
Being dumped by the best friend/ex/whatever the hell she was

I can't decide if this year has been good or not but i definitely know i have changed.... a WHOLE lot for the better... and i can't complain about that!!!

90%!!! Where'd you get that stat?

Honestly Jordin, I don't think that 90% of the world is really straight...I mean, that's like will ferrel in anchorman saying guys brains are larger than womens..."it's science" lol. But seriously, I think that a lot of the world is just in denial of their sexuality because of the homophobic society in which we currently live.

Hilights: I stopped thinking

Hilights:
I stopped thinking I was bi and realized I'm really lesbian sometime during May.
Around the same time I fell out of love with a girl I couldn't have.
The summer, defiently, I spent most of it with my best friend.
Falling in love with her.
And then, when she told me that she returns the feelings.
Coming out. It was sort of like a quest for me. Like video games. But I make everything into a quest. XD (It's more fun that way.)
My first two Anime Conventions. That was also extremely awesome.

I think this year was a good year with some major downsides. But I don't feel like posting the negitave stuff. It'd ruin my happy mood, but, last year I was pretty depressed, and this year I've been mostly happy. Defiently a step up.

The good bits:

- watching a film I made get played to all the school's new year 7's and their parents (and how proud my teacher was of me)
- ending what has been a fantastic but very long winded and sometimes painful relationship with my ex-girlfriend
- laying in my back garden all night in tents with 5 of my best friends in the entire world.
- riding to school on our first day of year 10 listening to The Kooks
- burning on bonfire night the load of love letters and silly things that had been holding me back for a long time.

the not so good bits:
- coming out to my parents (hah..)
- saying goodbye to two of the most amazing teachers I have ever had (one who was the biggest crush I've ever had)
- getting glandular fever! which I still haven't recovered fully from!

but i think it's been a good year. absolutely hilarious... I'll take away from it lots of things I will NEVER do again. :)
