I've just graduated with a music/education degree, am looking at further studies in a different field and considering teaching English in another country.
I guess I'm pretty much a garden variety DL and have been that way for 10+ years. I still haven't completely come to terms with it but am 4-5 days away from coming out to my partner of over a year. I know that's not a particularly long time, but I'd like her to know that this side of me exists and to know how she feels about it. I don't have any expectations as to how the encounter will go but I at least know that she won't be like those insensitive people on Yahoo answering similar questions. I guess I'm here to look for some help rehearsing how my side of the conversation will go. I'll do that after I peruse some of the other threads so I'm not making people repeat themselves.
Some other things - I'm a big fan of Japanese culture, especially the literature, though I'm currently reading The Little Prince and either bouncing into some Kafka or Ian Fleming. I can't decide.
Oh, and anime. I love anime and manga.
I like films and I'm kind of an HD snob. I just had my first Hitchcock experiences which were amazing - Psycho and Rear Window and I might go with 'Shadow of a Doubt' next. I also recently saw and really liked The Skin I Live In with Antonio Banderas and Elena Anaya. And while I haven't seen much, I really like French comedies. Daniel Auteuil is cool.
I'm really excited about coming out to my partner. Terrified and excited at the same time. It's another 'first' in its own right, I suppose. I mean, apart from strangers in this forum and on My Experience Project - I've not come out to anyone. I don't know how she'll react but I'm staying positive.
This is probably too long for an introductory post - sorry! Looking forward to hearing from you.
