I haven’t really been inspired to blog much lately. Even my twittering has waned. After getting yet another round of emails asking “are you ok?” I figured I should at least post an update.
Nothing is really wrong, well other than being a 2nd class citizen in the eyes of the law again. I’ve just been busy. Work has been crazy. My union duties are extremely busy right now. The other day I had so much union related stuff going on, I only sat on channel for about 45mins the whole day. I’m not complaining as I usually get results. Plus, I am actively working to make my place of employment better.
I’ve also been heavily involved in playing Gears of War 2. I freaking love that game. I beat the campaign level once already and am really enjoying the online play. If you have an 360, you should try it even if you don’t normally go for FPS (first person shooter) games.
The Prop 8 scandal still smarts. I will admit to being rather sad lately over the whole ordeal. I’ve attended several rallies and sit-ins. And while it feels good, I just feel like rallies don’t accomplish much after the fact. Where were all these people when our rights got taken away? I’ve also donated all I can at this point. I’ve pushed my finances as far as I’m willing. I’ve already forgone riding gear, my holiday overtime pay and money for personal holiday gifts this year. I can’t afford to give anymore right now. I know I sound pissy but I’ve done my part. I’m certainly not giving up but we all have limits.
I’m curious about the whole “amendment process”. I’d love to start an amendment to ban divorce in California. Or maybe we could ban marriage all-together. Or how about we ban Mormons? How very “christian” of you to force your beliefs on others. Don’t like the idea of marrying a gay person? Well then don’t do it you ignorant hate-mongering fuckers! That’s ok, you’ll get yours in the end. I have no doubts in that.
I’ve been hitting the gym consistently. I’m back up to a full routine. Still haven’t hit my original limits but slow and steady. I’ve been good at incorporating cardio into my routines and I’m getting used to it now.
I had a date last week. It was a medic who was doing his Medic cert back when I was doing my EMT cert. We used to run into each other at the hospitals and chatted often. Anyway, long boring story short, it did not go well. One, he was clearly husband shopping. Two, he had some internalized homophobia. Neither of which I am inclined to put up with. The final straw was when he indicated the whole Prop 8 scandal had very little to do with him.
I think he was more disappointed than I was. heehee His face fell several times in the course of our conversations. It was clear he expected me to be of a similar mind-set since we worked in related fields. I almost felt sorry for him. Almost.
I’ve taken my daily journals private again as they aren’t very nice right now.
