I think I'm going to "come out," so to speak. What happens happens. Worst case scenario, I move in with my aunt, put off school for a couple years, and study languages while saving money. . . I'm sure my parents will forgive me and accept my decision in time. But now I wonder when to do it. I'm really scared to do it in general. . . Maybe I should do it the weekend following Eid. Soon, but without feeling guilty for tearing family ties before Eid. It's silly, really, since I won't be celebrating Eid, anyway. Looks like I'll be stuck in shopping hell and going to my hometown.
I may tell them when we get back into town. I'm really nervous. Please make du'a for me!
Maybe I should start posting as my nickname. Maybe I should wait until after. . .
