Default So much has changed since the last time I was here...

Hello, all! I'm Ashleigh. I live in Penn's Woods, which is more commonly called Pennsylvania. I've been a member on ECL since December 2009 when I was a senior in high school. I had been coming out as bisexual then. Then I went to college for a year where I felt certain that I was just plain gay. I also stopped coming on ECL that summer because I was scared that somehow my parents would find the site on the computer. Now, however, I don't really know what I am, nor do I particularly care. I'm not straight to say the least and I'll just end up with whoever makes me happy, which I am totally ok with. I don't really need a label. I haven't really come out. I just don't really hide what I feel. Sometimes I'm a bit of a mess but aren't we all sometimes? I love to read and write (one poem I wrote was posted on here) and I'm super friendly! So yeah. Talk to me and I'll talk to you, yeah?

Welcome Back!
I have a similar situation -- I'm different, but labels? No thank you. That just complicates things. Haha.
