Shall we try again?

So, I did a lot of blog-reading this morning, and I remembered how enjoyable the whole damn thing was (in a cathartic kind of way), and while I don't have anything to be depressed about these days (other than not making enough tips at my restaurant), blogging (and journal-ing) is, overall, good for my mental health. I'll most likely end up starting a NEW blog (maybe make use of my artblog) for these purposes, as this was kind of my "Melodramatic Gay Mormon Pity Party." Regardless, I'll entertain you (if you're even reading this thing), and give you an update on my life, in general:

-After Winter semester '07 I decided that I was done with BYU. I didn't get into the animation program (I didn't apply myself nearly as much as I should have), and headed back to the homeworld (middle-of-nowhere, Oregon), and save up some money.
-Jan '08 I moved up to Seattle to help out a friend in need of a roommate, and have been up here since. Thus far, this has been one of the best things I've done in the last couple years. I'm thriving up here...the people are great, the weather doesn't bother me in the least (it's a big relief to be back in a temperate climate, as opposed to the blistering cold and blasting heat of summers and winters of Idaho/Utah).
-Feb '08 met my boyfriend. We'll call him "Handsome" for anonymity's sake (that, and he'd crap a pink brick if I used his real name in harm done with pet names, no?)
-Also Feb '08 got a job at a very respectable restaurant in downtown Seattle, and make good money....when we're busy. Our business revolves around another establishment that we're attached to (and brings nearly all of our business) influxes of tourists and snobs ebb and flow a lot in the course of quarter-year)

That's more or less it. I've got great roommates, a fantastic boyfriend, and a slowly-growing friendsphere that does not disappoint. More details on new blog/whatever later! Now I have to go to work!

Seattle sounds like a great place, and it is one of the places I'm considering going for Grad school in a few years. The same time as you I decided I was done with BYU and in Jan 08 I moved to Salt Lake.

Like you, I've had to totally re-adjust why I blog at all. When I started I was Mormon, same-gender attracted and committed to staying in the church. Now I'm an openly gay ex-Mormon. I seriously considered closing my blog, but I decided I liked that over the course of about a year, my blog showed how much I had changed.

It's nice to hear of others who have had similar experiences.

It's always good to hear from you. I'm glad things are going so well. I'm looking forward to the new blog.
