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).

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 […]

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: “Letting Go of ‘Butch'”

You know, I really want to document/vent/discuss my experience from the other night, but I’m still struggling with the writing process for whatever reason… It’s like all of my thoughts are stuck inside my head, and I either end up rambling or can’t quite figure out what I want to say or how I feel… […]
