I've been thinking about writing one of these for a couple months now, but every time I think about it, things get busy. Now is as good of a time as any though, right?
My name's Kerrie...been reading this site for almost a year now, since last August or so. Female, 21, gay...I've been out to my family and close friends for almost two years now, but my job doesn't really allow for me to be out, so not so much there and with anyone I don't really trust that much.
I'm from WA state originally, but in the last couple of years I've lived in Monterey CA (awesome!), a short stint in small town TX (ugh...) and I'm living in Korea (cool, for the most part) right now. I'm going back to northern CA next year, and I'm pretty excited for that.
I found this site when I was in purgatory (Texas ;) ) and not in a place where there was really any sort of community, and reading everyone's posts made me feel like I was a part of one. I should have posted a lot sooner, but stuff just always seemed too busy, and sometimes just easier to blow stuff off and not think about what to say or how to phrase things. In general though, thanks everyone, because reading everything you guys have written has helped me feel more connected to a community I haven't been able to be nearly as much of a part of as I'd like right now.
Looking forward to writing occasionally and getting to know people!
