I just joined this site, so I'm not really sure how things work around here, but I suppose a nice little situation synopsis would be a decent way to start. I'm heading off to boarding school in a couple months. It's a very nice school, relatively liberal, and the people are insanely friendly. My main worry is how to approach my sexuality. I'm lesbian,
I got this book today from the library called Fire Logic by Laurie J Marks has anyone read it? It's a fantasy novel and I've heard it's good and has some lesbian content/romance in it...so....yeah, not that EVERYTHING I watch or read has to be gay...but yeah, the only things I want to take the time to read right now are gay romances. Because, well, I still don't have that in my life and I'm a romantic, okay? Ha. Anyways that girl at school is still, ah...so cute. And nice.
so that debate on same-sex marriage i mentioned before (http://www.oasisjournals.com/2009/05/class-debate) was today. and i honestly tried my best to come up with arguments that would mean something to me and my liberal classmates. so i talked about adoption cases and health issues and the american family and all that shit (see i cursed that's how upset i am), and the messed-up part is, while i was debating i actually kinda believed what i was saying!
School's finally over:D..just got taking my last 2 Finals yesterday and should find out some of my grades over the weekend so that'll be cool hehe....the potluck-critique was good,good fruit ,OJ and muffins and stuff.....currently watching the Grey's Anatomy finale and it's the 'you're getting the surgery /it's also about my life/my life w/you' scene before I go see Wolverine at 1 on the stadium side hehe and maybe get some lunch too..
OK, is this messed up or what? As an end-of-the-year project for my American History class, we're doing a debate. And guess what my debate topic is? Same-sex marriage. But that's not the problem, the problem is I'm being made to argue *against* it. I tried to switch but nobody wanted to, and if I make too big a deal people will start questioning me. Meh! Sometimes I hate school.
You Are the Bedroom
You are an indulgent person. You enjoy rest, relaxation, and pampering.
You know how to find peace in a crazy life. You are good at unplugging.
Yay my first post. :)
Anyways, so tomorrow is Day of Silence at my school. I was thinking of doing something like this: http://www.tiraspoltimes.com/files/images/moldova_gay_pride_protest.180x... and not talk all day,
but I don't know if I should.
I'm really into Philip Glass. Pretty cool stuff. I like instrumental music a lot. I have been listening to a lot of soundtracks lately including musicals, Disney movies (Phil Collins), Titanic, and the like (suggestions are welcome : ).
This is going to sound really stupid, but it's been driving me mad and I'd really like some advice.
You Are Cute-Sexy!
Yesterday was good, watched the Barbara Walters special on Patrick Swayze(thank you DVR), and then went to my school's Fin Aid office, and haveta turn in my paper after I get the speech class 'offically/hopefully on Monday' (and get my counselor to initial his paper for me too).
Welllll,last week was really good for me hehe(except I couldn't bring my cleanser but it wasn't that bad w/o it hehe,but next time,I can bring the travel size empty bottle w/some inside):D.
Right, so hi everyone. Just as a bit of a caution, this will probably be quite long, since I'm not sure how to phrase this...
So school started on the 2nd
It was a happy day; I met all kinds of people I'd missed.
I'm in the same class as my best friends, I got the locker right outside my class, My teacher marks easily etc.
And, seeing S., I guess I'm over him.
He doesn't seem special or perfect or anything.
Just not important anymore.
It's been hard to find time to post recently.
Hope to have a great year
Well. Today was my first day of classes. I had Physical Science, and then Convo [we have to go to 40 in the 4 years of college here], then College Writing. Then I went to lunch and hung out with my new friend Sarah for a while. Now I'm sitting in my dorm room alone [no roommate, people hate me I guess] litening to music. I have to leave in a little bit for Christian Faith.
Just today, by my final hour, the news was hot. I heard the story a total of two times in a class of ten people. Our school has three lunches right in a row splitting up students. Something went wrong during the second lunch. Students got up from their table and ran outside, inspiring others to join them until a large mass of people had run from the lunchroom.
Last weekend I was in my school's production of the Laramie Project it was awesome. I mean I cried by the end of every show but it was amazing to be a part of. For those of you who don't know, Laramie Project is a play that is made from a collection of interviews with people of the town of Laramie Wyoming after the beating and death of Mathew Shephard in 1998 because he was gay.
Do they seriously need to drill his stuff into my head even more? I mean... This is the second time I've learned about exponential equations. Oh and the linear equations - it's the third time.
Then Jesus Christ! Freshmen Social Studies was a JOKE! The AID's epidemic? I learned NOTHING! Those map quizes? I aced all of them. Hell I got a 100 on the exam!
School has been ok. I did an Essay for HNA and passed it,just took 2nd Exam for Math(and think I did ok* knocks wood*). My 2nd project is coming along nicely and only have 2 pieces to cut in woodshop and sand then I can start painting. I go on my 1st field trip tomorrow for HNA,we're going to a museum and I should be back by 2-2:30 in the afternoon.
