So... its been 3 years... fuck.
lol. In a NUTSHELL, life - a rough timeline of events
*Graduated animation school the year the recession took hold, awesome timing on my part >_>
*taught a lifedrawing class for a year
*worked at a digital art gallery for 6 months
*worked at an op-shop (thrift store) for a year
*then worked at a bong/legal highs store for a year
*left that job recently and got an awesome job with a nz fashion designer and then got made redundant within 2 weeks of starting, to which I blame murphy's law wholeheartedly.
*currently looking for work, lol.
Throughout the last three years I've continued with volunteering work at our community queer youth centre and was on the board for 2.5 years, primarily though, I've mostly helped with the education work we do, going into highschools, teaching bout sexuality and gender diversity and telling my life-story to 14/15 year olds. Literally hundreds of people now know me intimately ;_; which is rather disconcerting when I stop and think about it... D:
Boston legal, American Horror Story, Glee, Sherlock BBC, Torchwood, Harry Potter (always), Downton Abbey, Spartacus, Mad Men and Star Trek: TNG (the last month I have worked my way through almost the entire 7 seasons, Picard/Q is my new otp)
prsonal lief >_<
So... lets start at the begining cause its complicated...
Back when I was active in the various fandoms you see on this DA profile, I was a newly emerging transboy and former lesbian identifying person... however, as transitions go, things change and with the advent of my body finally lining up with muh brain, I realised that I liked mens a bit more than I could previously admit to myself. I am and always have been primarily attracted to masculinity, in all kinds of people, male/female and inbetween.... but I like queer masculinity and the factor of having been a chic, the men that were available to me prior to transition were, well, straight. Once I started passing as male, and queer men suddenly became an option... I was like "ohhhh yeahhhhhhh, this works."
I think I only identified as a lesbian because it was the only explanation I had for why I felt the way I did - I wanted to be a more masculine-bodied person, and butches were my only example (flawed logic, but I hadn't really known much about being trans at the time) Not to mention, real-life experience teaches you that fantasy doesn't always translate to reality and I just am more emotionally attracted to masculine identifying people in general... which 9 times out of 10 have been dudes.
All in all, I like queer shit in general, and it just makes sense to me in a way that heterosexuality does not >_<
Um, what else... oh yeah! Had top-surgery last year in August and just recently had revision done 4 weeks ago :3 So yay no moar bewbs!
