I had my meeting with the Admissions Committee last night. Near as I can tell, things went well. I was comfortable and collected and was able to respond with honesty and confidence to everything they inquired about. Even the stammered question surrounding "the lesbian issue." *grin*
I think the Sister who posed the question was relieved when I took over and answered the questions she didn't quite ask, but that I could tell they were wondering about. No I'm not going to stand up in the middle of Sunday Brunch and announce please bang my wife everyone. Yes, several Sisters are "in the know," (it's no secret and I've started to lose track of who does and doesn't know, and I'm fine with that). Everyone I have come out to has been very accepting (they seemed pleased to hear that), but yes, I realize some Sisters might not be so open.
I was also able to express to them my evolution in coming to really understand how it doesn't always matter that everyone knows anymore. But I did insist that in order to really *know* me, that is a fairly significant fact to get out there at some point (living situations, close friendships, etc.) I think I handled it well, and they didn't dwell on "the lesbian thing" any more than any other of the many topics they touched upon.
Here's hoping and praying for a 'yes' from the Prioress in the near future!
What this means for the blog is that I'm starting to think it's time for a change of scenery; a change of address. I probably won't link back here from there if and when I do move and leave this blog to languish for posterity, just as I did with the one before this one. There'd be one older one before that one out there too, but I got hasty and deleted that first one completely. I've started to think of them as skins that periodically need molting, in order to really grow into the next stage of my life.
