What I've been up to...

Not much, actually. Aside from working and working out, I have been reading a lot more lately. Right now I'm reading The Naked Truth: Young, Beautiful, and (HIV) Positive by Marvelyn Brown. Additionally, I'm reading a book titled Jocks, which consists of a series of stories about gay high school and college athletes. Speaking of books, I am trying to get mine ready for the copyright office. It's interesting when you revisit something you have stepped away from. I don't mean to toot my own horn, but my writing is damn good. I can't wait to see it on the shelves in bookstores nationwide. If only I could stick to my dictation schedule.

I'm also going on vacation later this month. I have not decided whether I want to go to San Francisco or New York. I have not been back to the Big Apple since 2002. I'll probably head on to my hometown and visit my family members, especially my father, who I have not seen since about 1996 (give or take a year). It will be interesting to see how we respond to each other. From conversations we've had, I get the feeling he is expecting me to behave as I did when I was a teenager, which is not going to happen. My biggest concern, however, is how he will respond when I acknowledge my sexual orientation. From what my mom and sisters have told me, he's curious as to why I'm not dating a woman. Actually, a lot of my family members want to know what I've been up to since I've been in the "Dirty South." Although, in my opinion, everyone always thought I'd develop into a homo, I was never "out" to anyone in NY. It will indeed be interesting to see how everything goes down. I'm sure he'll be disappointed.

Aside from that, the one and only Losojosnuevos is doing well. I'm still not dealing with Kindheart too much. I think it would be too painful to attempt to be friends after experiencing intimate moments (which I enjoyed). He's called me twice this week, but I haven't returned his call; there's really not much to say. Like James Ingram said "There's just no easy way to break somebody's heart." I'll continue to pray that he will find someone who will honor his positive attributes.

I'll try to blog a little more often. Have a wonderful weekend, y'all.

I'm fine. It is finals season and you know how that goes, so aside from studying, typing papers, and perusing the blogs, I am not doing much of anything. LOL.

I do know the feeling. Best of luck.

you're an author? nice, look forward to seeing your book on the shelf. that "jocks" book sounds interesting... i need to be adding these books to my list.

i've been reading "no se lo digas a nadie", it was apparently made into a a movie. But originally it was a book. it'll help you with peruvian slang.

have a nice/safe vacation.

tambien, where'd you learn spanish and whats your degree in?

Mama J: I'm toying with a few titles. Titling a book is a lot like naming a child: You want it to be just right. I plan to have a reading at the LSU Bookstore. Wouldn't that be great?

Jamie: I studied Spanish in high school and college. My undergraduate degree is in biology; my master's is in social work. I do plan on enjoying my vacation. I'm going home!
