30 is the new…

January 13, 2012 5 comments

The year is 2012. According to the Mayans, some internet yahoos, and John Cusack, this is our last year on Earth. It is also the year my high school classmates and I turn 30; coincidence? I think not.

First, some background. For whatever reason, graduates of Albany High School remain friends longer than students at most other schools. This seems to apply to all graduation years; it even spans different cliques and racial barriers. I can’t explain it, but I do love it.

Anyway, I am lucky enough to have a group of 20 or so high school friends that I still contact regularly. That number grows to about 50 if you include other graduation years, but for the purposes of this post we’re sticking with the “smoke-free class of 2000”.

I’m gay?

No, I’m not. Although throughout my life people have always thought I was. Why? Probably because I like to act, sing, I’ve always had more girl friends than guy friends and I’m not afraid to share my feelings.

The whole inspiration for this post was a comment made on facebook by an old college buddy. He, who will remain nameless, (although all you have to do is check out my timeline to find out) joked that after reading my “Love, Actually” post he was going to take a six month hiatus from my blog.

My first post

I did it; I finally decided to take the plunge. No, I’m not talking about my recent marriage (although I will); I’m referring to this blog.

I’ve been a sharer my entire life. Ask my friends. Hell, I even told my high school girl friends (notice the lack of a compound word)  about the first time I, um, “discovered my man parts”. Don’t worry I’ll leave that alone, for now.

Honestly, it’s amazing I’ve lasted this long without a blog: I like to write, I have A LOT to say, and I love hearing opposing opinions. I think it was more fear than anything. Fear of what you ask? Well, you all of course. The judgmental faces peering through their screens and into my life. And also the thought that no one would give a shit what I have to say so why bother?

But I guess that’s the beauty of this thing we call the interwebs, I can write whatever I want and you all can either read it or not…but I hope you do.
