First post

Real original title for this post, right? I've been wanting to do a blog for awhile now, but just haven't found the time/inspiration/motivation to get it done. I'm David, and I'm starting a fairly new phase of my life. Like most of you that will be reading this, I'm gay, LDS (Mormon), and still trying to figure out what that all means even though I started coming out about 4 years ago. I'm blogging for a few different reasons. One is because it seems like the thing to do. I was told by someone today that he doesn't know how to relate to me because I hide so much of who I am (I'll probably expand on that in another post). I'm an introvert by nature; not necessarily shy, especially once you get to know me, but I definitely put up a wall that's hard for people to get past. So maybe by writing a blog, people can get to know me better. Second, I find that I can get my thoughts out much better through writing. Along with my introvertedness, I'm not much of a spontaneous speaker and I'm usually content to just listen and make occasional comments. By writing, I can better organize what I want to say, and by putting my thoughts on paper (well, on the computer screen) I can save them and go back to them later and see if I have changed or made any progress. Third, I hope to meet new people through my blog...people who are going through the same things I'm going through, people who have already gone through it and can offer advice, and other "mohos" that have their own blogs. I'm sure I won't have too much that's original, but I would love for people to leave comments and let me know what they think about what I have to say.

And just for fun, here's one of those corny get-to-know-you questionnaire things.

Relationship Status: broken up/single/i don't know/hopefully changing

Innie or Outie: if I want you to know, you'll find out for yourself
Righty or Lefty?: righty
Chocolate or Vanilla: both are boring...something fruity or caramelly
Big Mac or Whopper: Whopper Jr, if I had to pick, but I'd take Arby's or Taco Bell
Coke or Pepsi : Mtn Dew!!!!!!
Beer or Wine: yuck...not a drinker, although I have been known to have an occasional Sex on the Beach
Coffee or Tea: Coffee!!!!
Breakfast or Dinner: mmmm pancakes

And that's enough of that.

Allow me to be the first to officially welcome you to the Queerosphere! Woo! So excited for you to be a bloggy buddy :)

And I do really hope that this (if not another way) does allow me (and others?) to get past that wall and get to know you better. Here's to a new beginning!
