Pleasant suprises

I told my friend Audrey over email that I'm bi. She was really nice about it, which I expected. She told me she's bi, which I didn't expect. I'm happy, she's happy, we're good friends. So...yeah. Don't know what else to say.

A couple weeks ago I entered a pen and ink drawing as well as a sculpture in the state fair art show. I've entered drawings the past couple of years. The first year, I got second place, the second year I got honorable mention. This year the sculpture got first place and I got my picture in the paper, which was pretty cool. I don't know how to describe the sculpture other than it's kind of a mushroom thing, kind of abstract.

Beth, the friend I had a crush on, has a brother, Dave. He and I are really good friends and have the most random conversations. He's been having problems with his brain for a couple of years and the doctors don't know what the problem is. I don't want to give too much away because that's his private business. Last spring he had this surgery done and it fixed the problem for a few months, but now it's back. He's the nicest guy and I just wish this wasn't happening to him.

Did I mention I go to an online school? I think I did. I got really behind with Sophomore year, and now I'm trying to catch up with Junior year through the summer, but it looks like I'll graduate late which makes me feel horrible. I'm a perfectionist, and I like everything to be perfect, especially me. But that's not how the world works, so I'm not perfect and I disappoint myself.

The back of my earring came off while I was sleeping. When I woke up I walked over to my desk to get a tissue and the front of the earring felt out. My desk is a huge mess so it took a while find the damn thing. That was frustrating.

Congrats on coming out to

Congrats on coming out to your friend. Now that you've experienced the satisfaction of being out to one friend, you can come out to more friends, and eventually your family, yeah? This is a very good step for you.

@Jeff - Haha, no, she's not

@Jeff - Haha, no, she's not my type.
@Radiosilence95 - Thanks! This actually the second time I've come out. I have a few ideas for other friends to come out, but I don't know about family yet.
