Just the facts:

I’m 33 years old, Caucasian, very average.

I’m a Christian.  I’m gay.  I’m a Christian gay.  Actually, I’m “newly gay” (look at my Glossary of Terms for that one.)  I still struggle with it, fighting between what I’ve been told my whole life vs. what I believe in my heart to be true.

I’m a Gemini and sometimes live up to the stereotype.  I can be a little crazy sometimes.  Not always sure which personality is in control.  I’ve been clinically depressed most of my life and was on medication for six years.  As of Halloween 2008 I’m off the meds and things are going fine so far.  Not sure I can say I’m cured but I seem to have a much better grasp on things these days.

I hate my job and try not to think, talk or write about it.  If I do, it’ll probably be a major rant about some dumb ass or other.  I’d like to find a new job having something to do with Project Management…  Or writing…  Or acting…  Project management seems the most likely direction, but I don’t have a college degree and so far it’s been tough to find something new.

I hope you like what you see here, and if it strikes a cord, fee free to drop me a line at startedliving@hotmail.com.  I’m always looking for new pen pals.  🙂

  1. hi there,
    i stumbled across your website today, through the devil’s airline post, as i have a love affair with all things airline, airport and travel.
    as i was leaving i saw the “coming out” tag – and delved further into your blog, and was, frankly, gobsmacked at the amount of similarities there are between your blog and mine.
    i don’t mean to be weird or anything, but it is fascinating.
    i started blogging in mid july as a way to deal all the stuff going on in my head. as a n alternative to therapy.
    i am 35, and i only came out in february this year. when i read through some of your posts, i could so relate to what you said. i love not having to pretend anymore, and being able to have honest conversations with friends and with myself.
    i consider myself very lucky in that i have not (yet) had a negative response. about 50% of people were just so happy that i came to terms with what they already suspected all along.

    i wanna wish you all the best, all the way from cape town. just be yourself, those people in your life that are important will accept you for who you are. if someone has a problem, that is their problem.
    i actually found that the hardest part was verbally something that i knew all along, but had been supressing. i wasn’t actually worried about the reaction of others, but it felt uneasy / weird to verbalise a deep dark secret.

    go out and enjoy the new you!
