Locs

Hey there, dear readers of the page. I wanted to drop in and talk about a topic completely unrelated to my transition.

I want to combine my locs to make thicker locs. The theory is two-fold. 1: make my hair stronger and 2: make my locs thicker. Now comes the interesting part – trying to get Egg on board.

Thicker locs look sexier to me, and mine have thinned out considerably.

So, that’s my idea and that is what I am sticking to, as of now.

bye y’all!

Girly Beards

Hey there, dear readers of the page! Long time, no talk nor type, huh? Well, I probably won’t be around much, and really, all I wanted to do was throw down an idea here so I have it in digital storage.

My idea – a series, or even a book, magazine or something of the sort about trans women and the beards they had before shedding their male skins for good. I know I had one, and it was strange to shave it all the way down, until it was just stubble; finally, one last shave and I was clean.

Anyway, something along those lines. I think it would be fun!

License

With the name change, I had to update my drivers license, and when I tell you that I took the most heinous picture ever, I am not exaggerating! It is horrible! I’m contemplating losing it in about a year, so I can hopefully take another picture. It’s  that bad.

The DMV said it would take up to 30 days to receive. I got it in 3. Yay for that, and now comes the hard part – getting all documents changed over into my correct name and gender.

more later…

Name Change

Hey there, dear readers of the page! I haven’t visited in a while, as evidenced by the cobwebs all over.  I just haven’t felt like writing.  But, I have some good news, and wanted to share!

I have finally gotten the name change process underway! It is being handled pro bono by the Legal Aid in my city. I met with my lawyer and signed off on all the paperwork. The name change request was submitted and accepted within a matter of hours. I have a court date to go in front of the judge, which terrifies me, by the way. The date is Oct 30. I’m pretty excited, but also nervous that something will turn up to prevent me from getting this essential part of my transition.

Of course, with the name change comes changing over all my documents, marriage license, drivers license, social security, bank account. All sorts of other stuff. So, it will be a busy Autumn season for me.

BTW – Thanks Egg, for driving me down scary downtown roads, and just being my champion always!
