Hollidays' surprises

A helpful friend

I was talking to Jack about my "waiter's misfortunes".  I ended up telling him how much I would like that everybody would magically know that I'm gay and that I would not have to tell again.  He suggested me to start talking about it himself to people at work.  I asked him if he was really comfortable with it and he said he was.  That really touched me...  I'm really happy to have a friend like him.  We go back to work tomorrow, so there should be some news about that in the near future.


I got more time to chat during the break. I ended up getting to know some of my friends even better and we laughed a lot.  It was really nice spending more time with them, even if it was virtual.  They made me have an even better break!

Almost like parting with an old friend

During the countdown to the New Year, 10 seconds before the New Year, I was hit by emotions.  Suddenly, I was sad to leave 2012 behind.  So many beautiful things have happened to me in 2012, I was feeling sad to let it behind.  I think it was really the first time in my life that a New Year brought emotions like that for me.  Happily, I am sure that 2013 will bring its load of very positive stuff as well.  After all, I am "going forward" :)  Still, I feel like I let an old friend behind me.

More gayness in the family!

At the New Year's party with my mother's family, I was surprised to see that one of my girl cousin had brought a girl with her.  The girl was never presented as her girlfriend and I didn't notice any "loving" moment between the two of them.  I was wondering, of course!!  I sent her a message on Facebook asking if they were friends or lovers.  I specified that either way, it was cool that she had brought the girl at the party.  She replied to me saying that they were lovers.  She told me that she thought it was a good thing to do so.  I told her that I was looking for the moment to bring my boyfriend to a family party!!  She was surprised!! Haha!!  We got to chat for a few minutes about our own personal lives.  I think it will be good for both of us to know that we're not alone in the family (although for me, things should be a little more delicate on my father's side).  We will probably meet face to face during next weekend to talk a lot more about it and I'm looking forward to that!  She'll send me a message tomorrow to confirm when she can meet me.  That should be a nice evening :)

Happy New Year to everyone!!! We all deserve it!!


  1. Oh that was all lovely, JF! I'm glad you have a friend at work like Jack and getting to know your cousin and her gf better will be nice. It's always good to know you're not alone. (((Hugs))). Happy 2012, my friend!


  2. J'ai découvert ton blog aujourd'hui (je me permets de tutoyer) et je trouve que c'est une belle initiative. J'apprécie la sincérité qui s'en dégage. J'ai hâte de lire la suite.
    Je te souhaite une année 2013 remplie de belles choses !
