I've been trying to figure out what to do with my life since college graduation. Thinking it's going to be journalism and maybe teaching later on.

Interested to hear what you all do and what your career stories are... also if you're out at your job or not, and how you figured out or knew if you were going to tell coworkers.

At my current job - just something to pay the bills atm - I'm not really making an effort to really talk to people that much. Some of them seem conservative enough that I might feel like lying and saying I have a boyfriend if it comes up in conversation... annoyingly had to turn down a couple numbers from weirdo men.

I'm an architect and physical planner (kind of like an urbanist?), graduated two years ago. I'm not out at my job and almost no one knows I'm a lesbian aside from some friends and a cousin. They've asked if I have a boyfriend some times and I tell them I'm happily single. They pried sometimes asking me why and my "I don't need one" answer seemed to leave them shocked lol maybe if they had asked if I have a girlfriend my answer would be "not yet". But really, its not anybody's business anyway, so I don't give them other openings to ask more than that.
