I'm spending New Years at my dad's house, doing absolutely nothing. I know this is the time to be making resolutions for the new year, so I'm curious...what are some of your new year resolutions?
I don't really believe in making new year resolutions. I believe that if you want to change something about yourself or your life, you shouldn't wait until the end of the year to do it. It's just an excuse to procrastinate for most people, and the majority don't even follow through with the resolutions they set anyway.
I guess if I had to make one, my one resolution would be a bit general. I just want to make 2012 a far better year than 2011, although 2011 was an improvement over 2010. I want to stop being hesitant, I want to put myself out there and continue to improve on my attitude. I want to come out successfully to friends and family, and I want to be a smooth ladykiller around Brittany. These, I suppose, are my more specific resolutions.
I came out to my 6th grade teacher through email yesterday. I was just giving her a brief update of my life, and I kinda threw in that I was gay on an impulse. I regret nothing. I need adult guidance from more than just my counselor, and my teacher is so free-spirited I just figured she'd be okay with it. You'd think I'd be stressing about her reaction, but I'm really not. This is a very good sign. I've made progress in my mission to be fully out and proud.
So, my little sister told a family friend that I don't believe in God and that I own a copy of the Satanic bible. This friend, who is a close friend of my mom's, called her instantly and bitched her out about her daughter's lack of religious guidance. She thinks I need to go to a Christian counselor. I think she can go fuck herself, sticking her nose in my personal choices, making it her business. She thinks I'm lost and misguided. Whatever. People and their need to push their beliefs on everyone. I'll never understand it.
STILL haven't texted Brittany. I kinda wanted to wait until my next counselor's appointment, so we could talk about why I'm so hesitant and work through it, but that's not until January 9th and break would be over by then. So I dunno. And my best friend hasn't caved and texted me yet. I'm still waiting for that.
I wish I was out doing something for New Years. Eh. The good news is I'm going on a little shopping spree tomorrow with my Christmas money. That'll be fun.
