Quick Update

I've been incredibly busy since getting home for the semester.  I've been shuttling around family members, fixing my broken-down motorbike and riding it home from Utah, and working a temporary part-time job before I move to Texas for an internship.

Here's a quick update: still Mormon, still gay, still skanking around and feeling guilty about it, still trying to make good friendships with good people, still not sure about my future.

Right now, however, I'm reasonably content. I have lots of worries and I'm pretty sure I screw things up royally on a regular basis, but it's okay.  It will be okay in the end, I think.  I might be making my path to that ethereal "end" harder, but it'll still probably turn out okay.

Also, I've started doing some side work doing some technical editing for Petrolicious, one of my favorite online automotive outlets.  I'm really excited about that. Good things are happening in my life and for that, I'm grateful.

I've said it before to many of my friends, but now I need to say it to myself and believe that it'll work:

Keep moving forward.


  1. Thanks for the update. I'm glad to hear good things are happening for you. Moving forward myself... off to enjoy a beautiful day outdoors with the kids. Take care of yourself, GMP. And know lots of people sending you love and cheering you on.

  2. Glad to hear you're doing ok! Sounds like things are moving along for you- that's great you're doing some technical editing and doing an internship! If you do much freelance writing, let me know- my client has a web development business and needs writers from time to time.

    You know, we all screw things up quite regularly. Don't let it get you down- the beauty and love of the Atonement is that we can keep working to get things right. Hang in there. :)

  3. You should go to the Affirmation conference! There's a scholarship available that makes it cost only $50--and $60 worth of food per person will be served!


Be nice, mmmmkay? I allow anonymous comments, but not anonymous (or even attributed) douchebaggery. The Gay Mormon Pioneer's tolerance for hate and venom are incredibly low, but his love of communication and debate are high, so have an opinion, but be kind and gentle when you share it.
