I'm Soul. You know what I find very interesting about your post?
I also live in the lovely part of America known as the Bible Belt. One of the poorer Southern states actually. I am also bisexual--and actually eighteen. Well, for another month now.
Only, I've been in a relationship with my girlfriend for about three years now--best friends for about seven since the day we met. I've got about another month of school before I graduate from my trade school and will be making the real money, lol.
Oh, and my girlfriend and I have been working on a novel of sorts since we first met one another so... that's pretty neat that you also mentioned writing.
