an update…

I’ve seriously neglected this blog (and its followers), and for that I sincerely apologize. Lately, I’ve considered archiving this particular blog/URL and migrating over to Tumblr to continue documenting transition/trans* related stuff… (eh, to be determined). At any rate, there’s a LOT of updating I’ve wanted to do over the last several months, but to […]

Personal: I wish…

Sometimes I wish I’d just been born male… or female – or “straight”… non-queer… WHATEVER. As long as it was at least, like, 90% “something” and without question.

Personal: Gender and Sexuality and Definitions, oh MY!

Today… it’s all about me. I don’t feel the need to explain myself or define my gender. It’s amazing […]

Personal: Fear and doubt

A few weeks ago, I met a handful of guys from a local FTM group to see a movie, and it was the first time ever that I was referred to using male pronouns. It was weird and exciting and… really kind of AMAZING. They also called me by my chosen male name, and for […]

Personal: Regarding Transition

I just started the process of coming out as trans… Ha. I’m still not even sure what that means, for me, exactly. I’ve never been happy as a girl. I mean, I finally, eventually found a place that works (kind of) – living as a butch lesbian. I made it work. I’ve evolved into this […]

Hello world!

I was going to delete the cheeseball default heading that was suggested by WordPress, but I decided to go ahead and keep it  🙂 Anyway… Hello world! Indeed. I’m really not quite sure what this space is going to be. For now, I think I’ll just write and let’s see what happens. I’m sure it […]
