So I was in science class today doing a lab and the subject of conversation turned to prom. I made the mistake of saying "I know who I'd want to go to prom with" lol dumbest thing to say ever because they wouldn't stop asking me who it was. Every time the used the word "he" I wanted to laugh. people are so unaware, I mean I've been publicly "out" for a year now ( I guess I'm sort of quiet so no one notices) . finally I gave in and told this one girl I'd tell her who I liked after class. When I did she didn't even bat an eye! All she said was " Oh yeah? She's really cute." It was weird, and then she took me to sit with this amazingly attractive and nice girl ahhhh!? I don't know them very well so I tried to say bye and find my friends and leave, but they kept insisting I stay (it was really nice actually) but VERY weird. The end.

oh... and I have finally started to listen to the indigo girls and they are amazing!

If you're totally out and no one knows you're gay, I think you did it wrong :-)

That's the best

I love when I come out to people and they just continue on like I'm, you know, a normal person. And don't ask me a bunch of stupid questions or anything. Too bad that hardly ever happens. XD;

=) To jeff- I am out to my


To jeff- I am out to my mom, all my friends, and online. I talk and joke with my friends about being gay all of the time. I go to pride events, wear rainbows every so often, have two pins on my backpack that state quite clearly that I am a lesbian, and I'm taking over the school GSA next year. I am pretty much out, but some people (like these two girls) just fail to notice. I HAVE NO IDEA WHY. I wasn't about to proclaim my love for a hot senior girl in the middle of science class.
