Get over my agoraphobia followed by
- Going back to school
- Getting my friends back
- Start cooking again
- Actually finishing my projects that I start
- Visit my family regularly again

I have a whole year to do it.

Well in 2011 I came out to my uni friends, in 2012 I came out to my home friends, it'd make sense that in 2013 I come out to my parents.

I guess a relationship that lasts longer than a couple of weeks ties in with that.

I actually came out to my parents pretty early but being outright out to everyone sort of scares me because I live in a 'Bible belt' area of Canada. Small minded people with big mouths means that as soon as i do, it'll be all around town and cause me some concern for my safety. For a town of just under 10k people we probably have 30-40 churches in the surrounding area.

I really want to move away to a bigger area before I come out to the public at large but I'm starting to see that as a cop out. So my Resolution this year is to buck up and not be afraid to tell everyone and anyone that I'm gay. I mean everyone who's important to me already knows so I shouldn't be afraid to tell the people who don't make a difference either way.

Good luck to everyone coming out! It's a shitty process but it is much better once you get through it.

I should probably come out, too. I haven't told most people that I'm heterosexual. They need to know.

Maybe you can get an Audino to use Entrainment on you. Or maybe have a Psychic Pokémon Skill Swap you something else.

Alternatively, there's Worry Seed or Simple Beam, but having Insomina or being Simple probably won't help your cause.

Magnet Rise? I forget if that changes the ability of the user or just adds levitation. Of just have someone use Gastro Acid, although that may be a bit unpleasant and doesn't last past the end of the battle.

Also, unfortunately, the process of coming out never ends. There's always someone else to tell, dynamic friend circles, et cetera.

At least you don't have Color Change. Changing sexuality everytime you touch someone would get pretty confusing and/or frustrating after a while.

At just over half way through the year, how are people doing?

I've... sort of... done this? I saw a therapist for a while and the first thing is better, but the overthinking thing is only a little better. I do have a date next week and my friends are making me an online dating profile (and having finally started taking care of my appearance I'm getting a few appreciative looks every few days) so I suppose things are looking up, though I've dialed down the need to get in to relationships and am trying to be a bit more casual.

I did end up getting a girlfriend, so I guess I can check that off, even though we broke up after 5 days...

No job yet, I'm just too lazy. Besides that, my grades have improved somewhat and I've been exercising a lot more recently. I guess I'm staying on track for most of this.

Good job MG. You inspire me to work on myself harder.

I'm going back to the gym frequently and am actually getting ready to go in just a bit.

I gained weight but since I've been going back to the gym and eating a lot differently I've actually lost a few pounds.

Making music is difficult because I'm retarded when it comes to technical aspects of how to use FL Studio 10 and always wind up getting frustrated and rage quitting because I don't know what I'm doing. I have, however, been playing the guitar and piano a lot more frequently and I now have a saxophone which I plan on getting lessons for soon.

I'm applied for a return to school in the Fall, but was recently informed that I am denied financial aid due to a bad semester last time I went two years ago mostly from depression, and that I'd have to write a letter explaining myself to be considered for it back. I don't know if this means I can't get student loans though or if I just can't receive aid, this is something I need to find out.

> Become financially stable

HA. Oh man. No, not at all. I've gotten much, much worse, because I'm an idiot. I'd rather not into details.

I haven't really done anything to progress my skills in certain areas.

I can shuffle moderately well before getting annoyed with myself (not that I was even serious about this to begin with)

I've been denied financial aid at two different points in my college career for two different technicalities. In both of those cases, a contributing factor (and in one of those cases the only factor) was that I already had more than 120 credit hours. So as per federal standard protocol, I was denied federal aid and had to write a letter explaining why I had gone over 120 credit hours and not yet completed my course of study, why I should be given aid to complete my course of study, etc. I took it seriously (who wouldn't!?) and wrote up a pretty thorough two- to three-page letter. Handed it in. Was cleared for financial aid almost immediately. Was told in both cases that I'd kind of gone and overkilled it with the letter and that all they had really needed was a formal statement from me and that they, more or less, were just doing things by the book ('cause they have to, 'cause their ass is grass if they're caught not doing so).

I wouldn't be surprised if your case is similar. Be honest about your past and present situations. Explain what's different now, how serious you are about returning to school, how you're a better contribution to this society with your degree than without it, etc. Will probably end up being overkill just like mine was. No promises, of course, but I just want you to buck up and see the glass as being a bit more than half-full rather than frighteningly empty. I don't think it's as empty as you think it is. I think this is probably just standard protocol on your school's part, the same as it was with mine.

I gained a few pounds this summer. Will try to make it more muscle weight once I go back to school and have access to a gym.

I'm probably farther from a relationship now than I was in January!
