12. Never an easy decision, Placebo
Your uncle sounds like a real prizewinning asshole, even if he is paying for your college. But something occurs to me: Is he paying for your college so he can have total control over you, too? Do you think maybe he "suspects" and offered to pay for college so he could influence you in the "right" direction (pun intended)?

I don't know your situation, of course, but maybe you don't want to be beholden to someone like him (sell your soul, and all). Do you have alternative means to pay for college? And are you sure he would cut you off if you told him? Do you even have to tell him anything? After all, it's none of his goddam business who you sleep with, is it?

Much good luck with this!
