I would like to apologize for my month-long hiatus from the blogosphere. Since I last posted, I have:
- travelled home to visit my family,
- began working full-time at my job,
- went to the Utah Pride Festival,
- made plans to move in with my Aunt and Uncle at the end of the month,
- attended my first gay wedding,
- started taking summer classes,
- began the process of (finally!) buying my first car,
- among other things (which I will reveal in a later post) ;)
So, in short, yes, the past month has been VERY busy. Fun at times, stressful at others. But overall, a good beginning of the summer.
Right now, there are a few things I would like to comment on:
Going Home: I was anxious about this trip because it was be the first time I'd seen my parents since coming out to them. The trip turned out great. Me and my mother talked a few times about me being gay. These conversations turned out great and I feel even closer to my mom because of them. I'm pretty sure my dad is okay with it, but he didn't show any interest in talking to me about it while I was home, so I never brought it up. I did not come out to my siblings, and looking back, I probably should have. I'm becoming more and more open about my homosexuality, and would hate for them to hear it from someone else before I had a chance to tell them.
Going home always ends up being a great experience. I got to spend lots of time with my parents and my siblings, which I don't really get to do much anymore. We went to birthday parties, went to movies, went shopping at the mall, had Roman Candle wars at midnight in the park, played games, and it all was great.
Utah Pride: So much fun! It was my first time at Pride, and I had a blast!
First Gay Wedding: Beautiful! As I told my mom, it was just like any other wedding, the only difference was that it was two guys. Congrats to Michael & Brandon! I wish you all the best in your happy future together!
