The reason for this is that I don't have a job.
Things that concern me:
1.) Getting a job (that I like, that pays enough, that will allow me to finish my teacher certification process, and is in a place where I am welcomed and encouraged in my teaching)
2.) I haven't lived in my parents' house for years, and there are several concerns related to that:
a.) living as an adult in my parents' home (general purposes)
b.) giving up a lot of my independence
c.) closeted lesbian moving back in with clueless parents...
The last one concerns me primarily logistically. During the past few months I have enjoyed slowly stepping out into the GLBT world... which I'm afraid will have to stop while I'm with my parents. First off I'll have very little money for going out, secondly, whenever I do go out, my parents will want to know where, why, and with whom.
Since "I'm going to the lezzie bar to see if I can meet people" would lead to a conversation I'm not ready for right now, I fear that for the next few months (hopefully, only a few) my dating chances will drop from small to none.
I'll also be attending their church while I'm living at home. I just don't feel right going somewhere else instead of riding along with them.
The last time I lived at home, I had not yet realized that I was a lesbian.
Any suggestions, those of you that have lived with your parents while they didn't know, and you did?
Although, if my parents ever stopped to look, they might figure it out on their own... for my birthday my dad gave me a power drill kit... of course, I've always been his "boy scout" and spent quite a lot of time as a teenager in the garage... as did my sister.... but oh yeah, she's bi....
