So I finally decided to start my own blog. This is a very exciting thing for me! I love to tell stories and freely give my opinion on almost any topic. If I could help, or change a single life life for the better by something this simple, I would feel wonderful. Or, I don't even have to change lives, but having someone smile by just reading one of my posts would be gratifying as well.
I will give you a brief history. I am 21 years old and was born and raised in Utah. I grew up in the small town of Hyrum that is about 78 miles north of Salt Lake City. I grew up in a medium size family (4 children, I am the oldest) and a very large extended family! Obviously I was raised Mormon... very Mormon. The day after I graduated (3 days after turning 18) I moved to Salt Lake City to live my life the way I wanted to. Free. Non Mormon. And Gay. Growing up Mormon I always felt like I was a horrible, evil person for being Gay. Finally, I owned up to who I was and realized that I was born this way, and I should live my life the best I can! At first, as you can imagine, the family wasn't very happy. Through a lot of growing and stretching, we have come to learn that we can still coexist, and love each other, although our lifestyles don't completely match.
I have been in a committed relationship with the same man for 3 years now. We have been through some amazing times, and some not so amazing times! Overall, however, I know we love each other. We live downtown Salt Lake City and both work for the states largest Credit Union. We live in an area known as "The Avenues." It is a wonderful place and I absolutely love it here. I love that Utah has four distinct and wonderful seasons. I love it's size (but I wouldn't mind if it got bigger) and I love the wide variety of things to do here.
Overall, I am just a normal, average person, who works to make ends meet, works to have fun and hopes to live a good life! I am excited for what the future holds and look forward to it. I love to cook and make up my own recipes. I love sports and I am infatuated with college basketball and high school football. I love dancing and creating... I am very artistic. I also love being with my family and friends who I love so much. Here is to the beginning of a wonderful relationship with cyberspace, where I can hopefully meet some interesting, wonderful, opinionated, free thinking new friends.
Thanks for listening-
