I suppose this is what causes me the most grief of all. I wish I could find some guys here at BYU who liked to ski, exercise, fix cars etc. I wish I had friends that I could hang out with and not worry about what others may think. I know I'm not supposed to care what others think but while here at BYU I have no choice, I need friends that aren't going to out me. Maybe I'm not doing my part. Maybe I need to give people more of a chance and not stereotype people so quickly, so I'll try to do better.

The BYU Crowd
Being the stalwart student that I am, I am delaying the homework to write a brief post. I have a confession. I finally summoned up the courage to go to the USGA meeting on BYU campus recently, and I have to say I was a bit disappointed. This could be because I sat in the back and didn't talk to anyone and left early. Maybe I went on a bad day and need to give it another chance but I don't know. All that happened was a recap of random news stories on gay topics and some more random youtube videos. Now, I don't know what normally goes on but I don't think I can take that kind of time out of my schedule to do a review of the weeks news with commentary. I just don't think I'd fit in. I'm quite opinionated and it seemed like my opinion was starkly different than those in attendance. I know someone commented earlier about how they didn't think I was that different from other gay people, but from the ones I've met and talked to, I seem to be very unique. Don't get me wrong, I wish I had more things in common with my gay friends but so far I've come up empty handed.
