Is seattle pride...I am torn between going and not...I have friends who are, and I know they would be chill...but....seattle is sucha small town.
bound to run into someone I know there...If I go.
It has been years now, and I am becoming slowlymore and more comfortable with being gay, but still not sure.
Years ago, I wouldn't go to pride for two reasons. 1) I was too afraid to be outed and 2) that I would become angry and punch some stereotypical flamer in the face.
so yeah...not sure, but I guess I gotta decide. Thoughts?
also, this week I deleted my facebook account. permanently. It has been good to have, for a way to keep in contact w/ friends and family for the past few years, but it has gotten scary.
IM convos re coming out, fam issues and things I know I 'deleted' on facebook years ago, are now showing in their new 'archives' that stores every convo or IM YOU EVER HAVE. ever.
and It's scary. shit also tracks your interests and your friends interests and suggests to others or employers how you know certain ppl based on facebook's assumption of your friendship based on mutual interests. scary.
I am done w/ that shit. hopefully. I mean, everyone on there I know or need to be in contact with....they either already know me, see me, or have my contact info or vice versa.
So yeah, no need to have one. and they even 'own' any and all pics and content that you post now.
On the plus side, hung out on alki beach tonight w/ some friends, drank some good brews, and got my new bike assembled, tuned and built...ready for my soon to be 30 mile commute to work.
that's right....movin' back in w/ the parentals...but @ least I'll be finishing school, living rent free, AND getting in shape. Oh, AND closer to kinda BF/ friends w/ bennies guy in hometown, so that's good too!
