lots of scholarship money!!!

lookin to the future...'s picture

so.... i got my scholarship packet back from the seattle pride foundation this weekend....

i got two interviews for $10000 scholarships (renewable for up to four years!!!) that's a shitload of money.... apparently there are upsides to being a dyke :)

and i've decided i'm doing it.... i'm finally.... after 10 months of wimping out over and over again.... i'm going to come out to my dad... i've had enough of this....

my mom is going to drive me INSANE... and i'm only exaggerating a little bit.... going on and on about how it's important for me not to be out at school because it could be really hard for me and blah blah blah but then gives me this big long speech today (literally yelling) telling me how i shouldn't be ashamed of myself... ridiculous considering the fact that she has been in a lesbain relationship for 13 years and can't be open about it.... for christ's sake we maintain a seperate bedroom in the house for her partner just so when people come over they have supposed "visual evidence" that they aren't together.... hypocritical? um yeah just a little bit.... ugh.... i know she means to be helpful but sometimes...

it's just so funny... later tonight she was yelling at me and telling me that i can't be hysterical.... she is telling me not to be hysterical by yelling and slamming stuff and waving her arms around... yeah whatever mom... and she wonders where i get it from? wow....

lol...ur mom sounds liek she's fun to deal w/...

and yeah, being gay apparently does have its advantages...there are many gay scholarships out there, the only problem is you often have to be out and literally committed to gay causes and shit to get them, not to mention the fact that once you get them, you are labeled for your entire college career. But hell, if you want/ need the money, and don't care if ppl know, then good luck jordin. I didn't even know the seattle pride people gave out scholarships. I knew organizations like the point foundation and the pride foundation do, but I didn't knwo seattle pride did.

Mental wounds not healing, driving me insane, i'm goin' off the rails on a crazy train- the ozzman
