At the age of 26 I’ve come to realize that on the outside I’m a grown ass man and on the inside I’m comparable to a 13 yr old girl
the US is unreal like girls cant wear shorts to school, you can literally lose your job for being gay, and unarmed black children are brutally murdered on the regular but old white ppl r still like “what a beautiful country. i can freely carry a gun for no reason and some of our mountains look like presidents. god bless”
Yeah that’s seriously what it’s like here. Sorry rest of the world. I know 100% that only one coworker I have knows I’m gay and that person is my mom, and that’s only because she’s my mom.
So at the beginning of this summer I was offered a summer job with the company my mom works for. This company pretty much supplies and sets up gas stations and various other convenience stores around the states I live close to. I hated my job before hand working in a grocery store so even for a summer making more money and getting to be somewhere else working every day seemed like a great change. And so far it has been great and I’ve really liked this job to the point where I could want to do it long term. This has stressed me out because the term of my job was about two weeks from coming to an end and then today things broke loose, today I got a phone call that I’ve been hoping would happen for this whole summer. Today I was offered a full time job with this company and I couldn’t really be any happier. Not only do I get to do a job every day that I actually like, I get a nice little bump in pay and I don’t have to worry or be stressed out about life things anymore. I was so excited when I got off the phone that I thought I was going to start crying. I’ve worked my ass off this summer hoping that doing so would carve me out a spot in this company and in doing so people have taken notice and I know without a doubt this is just the beginning. This all proves that if you work hard and believe in yourself something good can actually happen, and that’s something massive coming from a guy like me. I still can’t believe it, just holy shit.
