I have been having the best time over the past few weeks. It has been REALLY busy as well. In the time I've been gone I have moved house, which was stressful as hell.
I'd been talking to a guy I met online called Grant, we really hit it off online, but I never expected anything to come of it as he lives in NSW. Last week he came up here on holidays with a friend and we kinda met through chance while I was at work.
So after I finished up my shift I went outside to meet
The last few days have been exhausting for me. I finished my training at work so now I'm a fully independent lifeguard. Which is great, I'm loving my job so far.
I made my first serious rescue yesterday (I've rescued people before, but that was plucking kids of of waist deep water). It all happened in seconds. I was watching over the pool, when out of nowhere this fat bloke starts flailing, he must have been exhausted.
I don't know how much you guys know about drowning,
It's been a big week for me. Found out on Tuesday that I had my SLS proficiencies this week, so I've been training like a madman for them. Last one is tomorrow and I think I'm up to it.
But my biggest moment was that I told the last of my three besties that I was gay earlier today. Got some Ice cream and went and sat on the beach with her, thankfully the sun decided to shine today :)
Like my other two friends she didn't believe me at first. "Really!?" "Yeah,
As the title suggests, I finally f@$king did it. I came out to my roommates.
We went for a walk out along the beach, and I kept struggling to tell them. Looking for the right time, but like the rest of the times I've thought of telling them I thought I would pussy out.
Then we passed a guy with a really feminine voice and my mate said, "he sounded happy" and I replied, "what makes you say that?", and he said "I've got a great gaydar"
So I finally did it. I came out to one of my best friends last night. Granted it was via instant message online, but it was still terrifying. It feels a bit surreal, I don't feel like anything has changed, or any great weight has come off my shoulders. If anything I feel more anxious about it than before.
My friend was totally cool with it. He didn't believe me at first, partly because I don't come off as sterotypically gay, and partly because I always mess with him so he takes everything
