This probably won't last, but for once at least I'm going to just try writing like I would in a paper journal, if I kept one during the school year, which I don't. So no long stories starting far in the past, no pivotal life-changing (or even just mood-changing or opinion-changing) moments, just today, in all its mundane simplicity.
Actually, first I'm going to see if this works...
Yesterday Obama stated that he will be ending the "Don't ask, don't tell" ban. This is great news! For 16 years the "Don't ask, don't tell" policy has been discriminating gays and lesbians within the armed forces, but hopefully not for much longer. He has not set a date for when he plans on doing this; but at least it is a start! Please watch the video.
THIS ARTICLE IS RIDICULOUS!!! BEING GAY IS A CHOICE, NOT A CHEMICAL THAT CAN BE RELEASED AT ANYONE'S PLEASING!!!
I told my mom a while back that I was "lk that" and wasn't going to change. She seemed okay with it... She said it was my choice and just to know that once I make that choice, (to come out to all or to be with a girl) that nothing would be the same. Life would be harder. So, thanks? I mean I thought it was okay. Too good to be true???

In his book "Here's What We'll Say: Growing Up, Coming Out, and the U.S. Air Force Academy," Reichen Lehmkuhl provides an eyewitness account of the Air Force Academy under the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. The book chronicles his growing acceptance of his sexuality and the eventual formation of an underground group at the Academy, started by Reichen, which enabled gay cadets to provide alibis for one another to protect their sexuality from being known. The book's title is taken from the phrase the group used to preface their alibis. Reichen recently spoke with Jeff prior to his book tour appearance in San Francisco. Here's What We Said...
So, what prompted you to write the book?
I wanted to write the book since I was a cadet at the Academy. I always tell people 'Someone should write a book about this place,' or 'Someone should make a movie about this place.' So, I wrote the book. About two years ago, I started, and it was right around the time that I was separating completely from the Air Force and the Air Force Reserves.

I feel like I have accomplished nothing! I've been off from work 2 days and there is nothing to do! I've cleaned. I've got on the net, I've slept, I've done everything I can possibly do and it is boring! I can't wait til LIFE starts again. To think.. This IS life for a low of people- stay home and do shit- how boring!
okay, if i can pull it off, i think what i'd like to do as a career, is join the air force, be a medical officer in there, maybe for a while, maybe forever.
if i do leave, once i'm done, i'm gonna go around the world doing the doctors without borders thing and help people.
whaddya think? huh? huh?
