Day 366

Yesterday I received a beautiful text from one of my best friends.

"I'm proud of you. This year was amazing for you. I'm so honored to be friends with you and witness your growth. I love you. A lot."

The person who sent me this text is the first person that I came out to. A year ago, yesterday.

A lot has happened since that day. A couple days later, I went on my first date with a man. I wore the gayest outfit I had (argyle sweater, jeans, and nice shoes). We went to Brewvies (my first time at a bar) and saw "Where the Wild Things Are."

Irrelevant? Yes. Insignificant? Not to me.

I have learned a lot over the last year. Here are a couple highlights that I would like to share with the world:
  • Just because I'm gay doesn't mean I get to be a bitch.
  • Being out of the closet is not the equivalent of a degree in design.
  • Not everything matches.
  • I am not shaped by stereotypes.
  • People are usually ready for more than you'd think.
I guess, on the whole, I am one of the luckiest guys I know. Over the past year, I have met a lot of interesting people. Most of the guys I have met have not had the most supportive coming out experience. Sometimes I feel spoiled. I'm not sure what I did to deserve such wonderful people in my life, but I have no complaints.

Thanks for being great.

A Trio of Thought and Inspiration.

  • First off, I love my mother. She's what I like to call " The Shit." Pardon the language, but mother wouldn't have it said any other way :) Hence, the awesomeness.
  • Secondly, I love this group with one-fourth of my heart. One of the greatest albums ever made, here is one of the highlight songs of the album. The album is "Lungs" by Florence and the Machine.

  • Thirdly, I caved and bought a Katy Perry album. If I wasn't out of the closet before, I certainly am now. Check out this video and welcome the inspirational thoughts.

  • People who suck at driving.
  • Friends being awesome.
  • Family being awesome.
  • People who shouldn't be driving anymore.
  • Road construction.
  • Starting a new job (promotion!).
  • Honking my car horn.
  • Florence + The Machine.
  • Katy Perry (spelling?).
  • Thai food.
  • Angels in America.
  • Still being gay.
  • Political discussions with Grandma.
  • Crappy drivers almost killing me.
  • The Crazy Corn Maze.
  • Halloween [don't ask ;) ... ].
  • Honesty.
  • Dishonesty.
  • Night drives (when the crazies are off the road).
  • Scissor Sisters.
  • My first parking ticket (having nothing to do with me being a better driver than everyone else).
  • The pursuit of _______.
Obviously, I cannot be expected to write posts dedicated to each topic. Use your imagine, if you're really wondering how my life is going :)

Thank you and good night!
