Purpose

I am a lesbian going into Mechanical Engineering. This blog is meant to do two things: a.) relieve the stress on myself from being closeted, and b.) to let people know that there are members of the LGBT community in engineering fields.

If you want to contact me, you can send an email to lgbt.engineer@gmail.com

2013 Fall Classes

       First day of classes was today, although on Mondays class doesn't start until late afternoon, which is really bizarre.  I am used to classes starting around 9 or 10, just like the rest of my week does for class.  I am taking an LGBT Literature course, that should be fun, it's a medium sized class of 40 people, so I hopefully will meet some nice friends there.  I haven't really run into any of my engineering friends yet, but I am going to try and hang out with them some.  It should be a good semester.  Last semester I had the feeling that there was no reason for me to come back to school, although now that I have joined a few social groups it helps me know that there is something to come back to.
       And I can currently count the number of people I am out to on both hands, now the number is up to a whopping six people!!! One of whom I never talk to, yay! (Sarcasm there)  I need to work on that.  Have a great fall, enjoy the leaves and apple cider everyone!
