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.

One of those days

       So today started off pretty normal, then around noon things just started to go downhill.  It happens occasionally, like last semester when I missed a step and sprained my ankle.  But today I realized next Tuesday I will be booked for the entire day (yay (heavy sarcasm)).  I also missed a training session for my job because I failed to check my email in the hour notice, I did email my boss back to see if it could be tomorrow.  Then I was checking my email for a reply, walking down some stairs, when I missed a step and literally fell head over heels, skinning my knee and making a fool of myself to the person at the base of the stairs.  At least they helped my up.  I still have six hours of being in class and working on a group project for this day to get worse.  At least tomorrow is Friday and I get out of class early.  I can just relax, watch Game of Thrones, go on Imgur, or whatever I please, until I get the inevitable urge to do home for at least an hour.  Hope your days are fantasically wonderful!  Stay warm, drive safe.
      And the cherry on top was that I got a rejection for a summer internship, yes I know that I shouldn't be discouraged and that it happens all the time, but it was after falling down a flight of stairs.

Party Friends

       I went to a friend's party a few weeks ago, and a few things happened.  1.)  I was wearing a lower cut shirt, and one of the guys I was talking to kept glancing  down at my cleavage.  Now I know this happens, but this had never happened to me personally before, I found it rather amusing,
2.) I came out to one of my close friends at college, but we haven't really talked about it since.  I don't really talk to him, since we don't have very many classes together during the week.  Also my school closed tomorrow due to the cold temperatures, stay warm everyone.

Winter Break

       I've had a pretty good decent break, even if it has been a bit cold lately.  Made candy with my best friends, gone to a few museum exhibits, cleaned the house, etc.  The past few days I've been applying for summer internships.  Hopefully I will get one, if not the place I worked at last summer offered me a job.  I've accepted the fact that I will be a fifth year senior, due to me retaking statics, I shouldn't have failed it in the first place, but things happen.  For those of you just starting college, there is no shame in retaking a course.  I'm hoping to come out to two of my engineering buddies down at school sometime this semester.  Stay warm in this arctic blast that we are getting, it sounds like we'll get another one in a few weeks.
