Sooo I went...

Took me like a half hour to get up the balls to go, and all of a sudden just decided to go, and then...

Hang on for the epic moment of suspense!

There was no one there!

I drove a few minutes, like 40 minutes actually, out of my way, and there was nobody there! The club that spent all day today advertising their meeting tonight, and no one was there!

So there was one other kid who was looking all over the place for people, and he was obviously gay...pretty boy looks and all that stereotypical shit...he was there with...someone who seemed to be an ex, or at least friends w/ bennies by their interactions....

We all walked off campus to the parking area @ the same time, last ones @ the school.

I asked him if he was there for the GSA meeting, and he looked at me a little bit shocked, and said yeah...and that was it.

They walked their way, I went mine.

But yeah, a little pissed that I drove that far out of my way, only to find nobody there!

Granted, we were both about 10 minutes late, but traffic into town sucked, and I was coming from two towns over, so yeah...:/

anywho...i got my new bike built today! It isn't as rad as I had hoped, and I need to work out the kinks, but for a free dirt jumper, I am stoked!

hehehe...

That is kind of funny, given the build up you gave it. ;-)

When I ran my college group, we used to have new members come 30 minutes early, so they'd have time to talk with a few of us, get settled in, and then it wouldn't be as strange when the regulars all showed up, since they would often show up a few at a time and join our conversation, rather than the newbs feeling awkward.

Gay student groups can be a bit cliquish, so the regulars will all know one another and be familiar, and such. But nothing too hard to pick up on...

I have no doubt that these guys

Are clique-ish, which kinda makes me have second thoughts about the whole idea, based on what I observed today. I doubt a redneck like me will get along with them anyway. Honestly, i was afraid I would say something non P/C and offend someone!

btw, I looked up that songf you posted on my journal awhile back about people who've died. Helped me get through last week. thanks jeff.

Had tow friends die in avalanches last weekend in the mtns, and the 7 year anniversary of miles' death last week. crazy shit.

Well...

You could also think: These guys won't be used to someone like me, so that will make me stand out and attract someone more easily.

HAHA...

Maybe...It seems lately, all I am attracting, is young, just out of high school, or still in high school, girls. Which, I guess, I should be flattered by? According to my shrink? But I am in no way, no way, going to hook up w. any of them, since that would be jail time.

lol. God I hate being gay. Why the hell can't I just be straight?

Hey Hellonwhells... why does

Hey Hellonwhells... why does it feel like our stories when it comes to trying to join a GSA sound almost exactlly the same, except for the fact I am in walking distance instead of having to drive :P

Could we talk about this in PMs?

Sure dude!

Seems like people always have issues joining them, and that sort of thing! lol.

Hmm,

it appears you weren't the only one who may have been apprehensive about attending?
