Rights of Trans People Living in Rhode Ialsnd

trans symbolTrans People! Know Your Rhode Island Rights!!!

Recently, the school I attended for junior high and high school has been brought to the forefront of Rhode Island and trans news. Current readers of my blog should already know I am a transman, but if you’re new, it’s nice to meet you!!

I came out several years ago and began physically transitioning last year. Over time, through research and dialogue, I have learned of different rights I have as a trans person. These are not all general knowledge. I have personally been told incorrect information and in the past have been afraid to enter some restrooms because I was ill-informed. I have researched my rights and listed links backing that research and findings. While I am not a lawyer and this does not constitute legal advice, if you experience a problem related to any of these statements, you should contact your lawyer.

Thriller Novel “Mind Games” Tests its Characters’ Memories and Sanity

mind games coverMind Games by MJ LaBeff is one wild ride! I picked it up right before I left for a holiday trip, and was sad that it took so long to finish. I truly enjoyed reading this suspenseful mystery—Its numerous twists will keep you guessing, while enough hints are dropped that the reader is able to piece everything together along with our protagonists. It deserves at least a four-star rating!

Monthly Media Roundup: December 2015

WE NOT LAZY. PROMISE.

It’s still there… The lights stopped working in that room, so I guess I’m grateful we haven’t had time to take it down… It’s like a pretty lamp..

Hi all!! I know it’s the middle of January and I’m just now getting to my Monthly Media Roundup from last month… But it’s been such a whirlwind of activity here in RI! As evening begins to fall, I switched on our living room lights… Only to realize that they’re dimmer than usual? I turned in a circle, questioningly, and then saw our tree. Our tree it still up! So—If you must know, that’s how busy I’ve been. Tree-up-Halfway-through-January-Busy. That really does need taken care of. But! Before I commit to any other things that need done, I decided that I must first look back on all the great things I read in December. …All five of them. There was shoujo love, 4-koma fun, shonen-ai tales, and one messed up sibling story! I feel positively about these books, and I need to tell the world before I end up having new ones to talk about. HERE WE GO!!

one-lovely-blogPre-Holiday Greetings to everyone! I have been a busy guy lately… Working, helping family, setting up Christmas stuff last minute, hosting Fake Christmas, making my husband gifts, and packing for a seven day trip to Pennsylvania—the state where he’s from! But, whenever I had free time last week, I ruminated and compiled facts here and there in preparation for this post—featuring seven new, somewhat fun, somewhat inane, and somewhat personal facts about myself for your perusal! I was nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by Matt-in-the-Hat, and have been really giving this a good go. Thank you for challenging me again, and making me really think.

MMR 11/15: Reading During Stolen Moments

group shot read

This month, I ended up reading all manga again… Heh. I was participating in NaNoWriMo and only had a few minutes at a time to sit down and read. Or eat. I didn’t do too much of the latter. When I get in the zone, I just keep going! I sat down for manga (or manhwa) breaks and ended up getting through all of Cynical Orange, though the rest of my reading was mostly me playing catch-up.

Confined within the Mind

Thanksgiving has been quite the double-edged sword this year. It has, unfortunately, kept me away from the computer for over a week, what with all the prep and cleanup. This was the first year we had the holiday at my house, and it turns out a lot is involved… However, this little break has also forced me to think about a lot of things, including the swirling, conflicted emotions and thoughts I have about one of my uncles. He has Alzheimer’s Disease, and the more time I spend with him and help to take care of him, the more I can’t help but question his thoughts, feelings, and actions.
