So apparently some people believe that you cannot be born gay and have faith in Christ.
Shake my head, people.
In 50 years when we look back on this whole gay rights issue, you all are going to look like such a-holes.
When I first moved here all I wanted to do was go back home so I could party with my best friends.
I still miss my best friends, but as crazy as it sounds, I think my days of partying three to four times a week have come to an end. Even after one night of drinking I feel worn out and like crap. The thought of partying Wednesday through Sunday seems annoying. I’m happier just sitting at home sipping a drink or two than being out at a club til 2 and after partying somewhere else. I don’t know if it is part of getting older or if I’m just getting boring. Whichever it is, I don’t really mind it.
It is crazy how a year can change someone.
As I grow into adulthood, I realize I really don’t know much about anything.
I know I’m only 23, but I’ve grown up so much since I was 19. I thought I knew everything and there was no arguing with me about it. I was proud and actually kind of condescending about it.
I’ve definitely grown to be more humble and learned to look for answers to life’s questions in other ways. I know I’m not the most religious person, and for a while I didn’t know if I would ever reconcile with my faith, but now that I’ve realized I don’t know as much as I thought, I have come to find comfort in spirituality. I’ve found myself actually wanting to try going to church. I went and it made me feel inspired. Maybe I don’t know the answer to life’s confusing questions, but i find comfort in the fact that Christ is there and I’m not alone.
I really feel like I’m growing up. Ready for marriage, a career, and whatever life has to throw my way.

In six months, I will be quitting my current job and starting law school.
I am so excited!!!! So excited at where my life is headed. Excited that I have an amazing boyfriend, a good family, and a bright future ahead of me. Excited that I’m going to study my passion, and I can’t wait to use my knowledge and skills to help others.
Yes I know I’m going to have a lot of debt, but I will manage it. I always get through tough times. With a little help, everything will be okay.
