Personal: Growing Up Girl

When i was little I loved to climb trees and play in the dirt and ride my bike. My BLUE boy’s BMX bike. As I got a little older and my friends started having crushes on the boys in our class, I realized that MY crushes weren’t on those stupid boys that I played with in […]

T Update: Three Weeks (already!)

I’ve been trying to post for the last week and a half – in fact, I think this post makes a grand total of FIVE attempts.

FYI: “Female to Male Sex Change Explained”
