I plan on heading down to Austin Friday as soon as 5th hour class is over, ( I'm leaving a little early during my last hour plan, but after all it's spring break!). I'm driving down this time because I didn't see any flights under $200 , all the good ones were taken on account of it being south by southwest music festival weekend. should be a lot of fun down there though because of that, the bars are always packed. My bud down there is in recovery and chemical free so I plan on being very careful this time about going out at all. I think it gets uncomfortable if I'm just wanting to go down and go to bars and stuff when he may not be ready to go out to bars and stuff just yet. usually his nightly meetings are around 8pm I think. I went with him to one last time, it was awesome. I'm really proud of him for getting control of his life this last few years. He had been fired from a new job while doing meth, and now makes more than 60k in the new position he is in there in Austin. super sweet! btw, it was a huge surprise to suddenly recieve his letter from rehab after all that happened, even throughout all my visits i had NO IDEA. I can be pretty naive anyway with stuff like that, I always just assumer the best with most people.
So yeah I'm going to be glad to get away. anyone ever feel like a gay closet guy with straight friends or a straight closet guy with gay friends? that prolly sounds dumb, but I've been asked at gay bars before if I'm straight, I'll just say, well I'm in this bar, alone!. I guess I figure its obvious I'm gay looking for guys if I'm in a gay bar looking for guys. I'm the kind of guy that can fit in to most social occasions, but of course you learn carefully just what to talk about and what not to talk about with different people. right? I guess that's the same for everyone, i don't know. I guess it comes down to people's priorities, is it family, dating, sex, money, faith? etc.. that really direct their lives and interest in other people.
this week has been crazy, getting ready for nine weeks tests with my students, and getting ready for this teacher luncheon tomorrow at my school. I'm in charge of the tables which means I don't have to cook and bring anything. also I'm getting evaluated tomorrow the first half of my class after lunch. and I'm also hoping to be completely packed and ready tomorrow night so I can go to work Friday morning and just leave from there to Austin. anyone else ready for spring break?
AUSSIE readers, today on the news here in OKC they report about the water level dropping 2 feet in Sydney and the heat is causing an overrun of cockroaches in the city. national news I guess.
Yet, You know you are in Oklahoma when the weatherman is reporting about the Allergy forecast... hmm.
