My brother is graduating!

My brother is graduating high school this Sunday afternoon. There were many times I worried that this day would never come, but he has made it and on time. I'm pretty proud BUT (there's always a but) a little worried about attending the graduation.

Concern #1: My father. My dad and brother don't really talk anymore and there's a lot of tension there. Will he come? Surely he will attend the graduation of his own son. Will it be awkward? Will I be drug in the middle yet again?

Concern #2: Being at my old high school. I grew up in a town of about 1200 people. I'm sure word has gotten around that I'm a lesbian but this will be the first really public event that I'm taking Kara too. Also the first public event that my dad will be at that I'm taking Kara to. Also lots of people my age who I haven't seen in forever will be there, which causes anxiety regardless.

Concern #3: I have nothing to wear.




  1. fuck them- go in there like you own it.

  2. Oh that's the plan!! But that doesn't mean I'm not a little worried lol.

  3. It's ok to be worried but as far as #2 is concerned, be proud of yourself and of having Kara by your side.

    Congrats to your brother.
