so i went up to seattle this weekend to interview for two scholarships through the Seattle Pride Foundation and through the Greater Seattle Business Association.

So Friday night I went to the one for the Pride Foundation!!! and guess what?? i beat out a ton of other kids for the scholarship.... the scholarship still has to be passed through the board of directors before it's official but yeah... i'm so grateful!!! $40000!!! no more college loans for me!!! and the interview on saturday... i thought i did even better.... i will find out about that one next weekend....

came out to my dad last monday and he was awesome about it for the most part.... he said he'd known for a long time.... he actually confronted me about it through an email so i called him and told him the truth... no dicks for me! not now not ever... and he was okay with it.... thank fucking god!!!

and even more good news.... my good friend/HUGE crush... well her cutting isn't nearly as bad as my best friend and i thought..... my best friend called me last night... i'm standing there on the corner of 6th and pike... and she tells me "b showed me the scars finally... she's going to be just fine" and i started jumping up and down.... freaking out.... people must of thought i was fucking nuts... but then again this is seattle and well... we have our share of weird people.... ha ha

so all in all... a great weekend....
