Never Apologize For Who You Are

Thursday, January 22nd, 2004 | Uncategorized | 1 Comment

I was talking to a lesbian friend of mine. An amazing person that I re-met this weekend from San Francisco.
She had this hardwon advice for young girls struggling with their sexual identity, though in retrospect,
everyone would do well to follow it:

“*Never apologize for who you are, but be careful of defining yourself with a label*

“So what happens when you fall in love with someone who isn’t exactly your “type”?

“Let’s see…

“I think love just takes over and you never really have a choice. It just takes you a while to catch up
with yourself. I guess that’s where labels get in the way- Your brain has a really hard time fitting
the new circumstance into the old way of looking at things, your old schema, as it may be.

I still can’t make rational sense out of why I still love the fucker


New Years Dancing On The West Coast

Sunday, January 4th, 2004 | Uncategorized | Comments Off

New Years was cool, went something like this

Friday, Dec 26 – Fly to Sacramento hang out

Saturday, Dec 27 – Drive 14 hours with 10 friends in 3 cars to Seattle, get sick, miss the party that was the reason we drove to seattle, won’t mind if I can get over it by tomorrow

Sunday, Dec 28 – Feelin’ better so decide it’s cool, drive down to portland w/ 12 people, dance there, Portland’s snowing, after party at Carmens, great time had by all

Monday, Dec 29 – We’re stranded in Portland because of the snow (I-5’s shut down) so it becomes a nice lazy day full of sleep, food, dancing, foolin’ around, etc. Cap it off w/ Peter Pan (great date movie btw, the kid in me was doing backflips) and a nice dinner

Tuesday, Dec 30 – Drive back down to Sacramento and San Fran, didn’t do much afterward, the drive was lots of fun though

Wednesday, Dec 31 – Coffee shops, bookstores, cold warehouses, walks through sac, reading, cleaning for the party. Then the party start, kids show up, music plays, life is good. Party ended when I went to sleep the next morning around 9am.

Thursday, Jan 1 – Breakfast w/ Sonya and Toby at 10:30am which was awesome (yeah that’s right 1 1/2 hours of sleep) and an even lazier day than before. Dinner in San Fran

Friday, Jan 2 – Fly back to El Paso for a brief weekend before trudging back to the real world on monday.
