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.

Recent World News

       So recently both The United Kingdom and the U.S. State of Michigan have legalized gay marriage!  So that's good, I'm sure you've heard about Crimea separating from Ukraine and joining Russia.  I don't really know enough on the subject to have an opinion about it.  I need to follow the news more.  When I lived with my parents we always watched the news, now at school I don't.  I try to follow it on the BBC, but I still miss watching it.  Also Game of Thrones season 4 starts next week!! I will enjoy that, even though I've already read the books it's still a good show.  I'll try and post in this next month, but exams and projects will be due, then it's finals.  Hope the snow melts and I want to see flowers soon.

High School Acquiantanes

       So one of my acquaintances from high school came out on facebook last night.  I read through the comments that were there, and people pointed out that her facebook relationship status was still with her last boyfriend.  Then even more interestingly her boyfriend posted something to the effect of: "Yes, my girlfriend is bi!!".  Wait, what's going on here?  I learned from another one of my friends that there was some drama about her falling for this one girl who was in a relationship with her brother.  So I do know that she is into women.  I guess this does show that sexuality is fluid, or can be.  I just find this whole scenario rather bizarre, but then again I've known that I'm a lesbian since 7th grade.  And it's warming up!! Enjoy the springtime!

Reader Interaction

       Here's the thing, I can't come up with any interesting topics lately.  I should be able to, but I've clearly been unsuccessful.  So I want to answer your guys's questions.  Write them as a comment, then in a bit I will compile them and answer them.  I will attempt to answer every one.  And it's finally spring!!  Yes!

NEW: Tumblr Account

Hey all,  I've finally gotten a Tumblr account.  So far in the last 24 hours of having it it's just been reposting stuff.  My username there is gigglingRain, so if you want to follow go ahead.  Basically just shows what things I enjoy out of life.  Also turned 21, yay for legal alcohol.  I want to try scotch or bourbon, but we'll see.  Stay safe and stay warm.

Spring Break 2014

       So this year during Spring Break I've decided to stay at my apartment at school.  One reason is so I can work a little bit, and another is that going home is expensive and I don't really get to see my friends since their schools are all on different schedules.  It's been nice getting some alone time, with three other roommates I get some, but some days I need more of a break.  Also I get to eat fish, which none of my roommates like, so that's been delicious.  Also, if anyone wants to suggest any movies I should watch, let me know.  I've already watched Scott Pilgrim versus the World, Knights of Badassdom, and Juno.  Stay warm in this never ending winter.
