I need a lie...

so I can go to the LGBT youth group next week. I could tell my parents where I'm going, but I don't want to. Seriously, it's ridiculous at my age, but I just don't want to have that conversation, you know? Especially when I don't know where I stand. So, now I just need an explanation for where I'm going that night because I basically never go anywhere alone these days, so they are definitely going to ask.

Pathetic? Yes, but this is why I want to go so bad!

I think I'm going to go off and watch Kissing Jessica Stein now, since I can't pick a 360 game to play...

I had

the same problem. Unfortunately, my parents wouldn't even let me go when I gave a lie that was in close proximity to the LGBT group I wanted to go to. I dunno what to tell you, I'm bad at that sort of thing. Maybe say you're going to something else right by it? Good luck. And go, find a way, because I think you'll regret not going. I know I do.

Sorry I couldn't help.

I keep telling myself that I will really regret it if I don't go while I still can. I definitely want to. As pathetic as it is, it's difficult for me to make friends in school now with the way that it is there. I'm too shy to really strike up a conversation and we never really have time to talk, anyways. So, the youth group seems like a place that I could potentially really make some friends because that mostly what we'd be doing, talking. Plus, we're all in the LGBT crowd so we've got something in common to talk about.

I feel bad that you never got to go, though. That sucks. You should be able to once you're 18, though. Right? I mean they can't stop you then. You really should try again :)

you are going to a local gaming spot for a 360 competition or something. lol. idk, make up a lie that is believable and they probably wont question it.

I thought you we're going to say "just tell them...

the truth." I was like "um, no." lol.

But, yep, I gotta come up with something believable. Believe it or not I'm a really good liar. Exceptional, even. I used to do it all the time and I still lie, but idk for some reason this one is causing me problems. It almost feels wrong to lie about this. I'm really at a loss for what to say, but at the same time I really don't want to tell them the truth. Oh well, I got a few more days, at least.
