WOW! I wake up this morning for my girlfriend to say "oi! Look at this! Say G'day to a Gay!". This is what was wrote in big letters, spread across my local newspaper. At first, i was pretty astounded. What's all this about then?

Ok, so I have put on a bit of weight over the past... I don't know... 3 years? Slowly, but it's definately gotten worse. All through 2009, I've told myself week after week that "this is it" and vowed to lose weight once and for all... And then I'd fail and eat my failure... Again.
But I've decided once and for all that I'm just going to get it over with and 2010 is going to be the year for me to get back to the old me. I owe it to me, my health and my beautiful girlfriend. There is a history of high blood pressure and diabetes in my family, so I really need to get this under control.
It's been about 4 weeks through 2010 and I'm going ok. I'm not turning my blog in to a weight loss blog, but thought it was worth mentioning!
It's a bit late, but hope you all had a good New Years and looking forward to blogging in 2010!

Not create another life or anything... no... not now...

Today I wrote a letter. I don't normally write letters to politicians, but I just felt like it today. So here goes nothing....
Dear Mr. K. Rudd, I am writing to you as a young Australian who happens to identify as homosexual. I know you must receive a lot of correspondence regarding gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans gender issues, but all I can do is let you know how I feel. I am a lesbian and although I do not intend to marry any time right now, in the back of my mind, I know that I can't. Not because I don't want to, but because Australian law says I can't. I understand that you are a religious man and I respect that. I understand you may not change the law because of your personal beliefs. I don't agree with that. I know a lot of people have religious concerns about gay marriage, but my concern is of human rights. I can't choose who I fall in love with, the same way you couldn't help falling in love with your wife. I just happen to fall in love with women. The common misconception of homosexuality, is that it is a choice. This is not true, as you may already know. All I am asking is that you think about the issue and raise the issue in the future. I realize a lot of people are against it, but at the same time, a lot of people are all for it, gay AND straight. I appreciate you reading my email and hope to hear a response from you sometime in the future.
