This blog is 2 years old today and I’m over 2 months on T and I just finished my 2nd week of school
If you messaged me and I didn’t reply please let me know, my memory is all over the place
Lol just had to out myself to all my profs AGAIN HAHA I LOVE THIS
my name is finally legally changed but the school still won’t change it in their system so I have to email all my professors again haha this is so much fun
I can’t believe I live in New York now
I’ve used same format on emailing professors about my name multiple times. It’s clear and succinct, which makes it like the best or something.
Mr/Ms/Mrs/Dr/Prof [Last name],
I am a student in your [Name of course] class next semester. The roster will list me as my legal name, [Birth name]; however, I prefer to be addressed as [Chosen name] and with [female/male] pronouns [he/she], [him/her], [his/hers]. Please also forward this to the appropriate T.A. or assistant or let me know who they are so that I may inform them of this preference as well.
Thank you very much.
Credit goes to some university (was it U of Colorado? I think it was)
Bringing this back because school is starting up again soon.
I pass 100% as male but none of my documents are changed, and I always have problems with the body scanners. Does anyone have any tips on how to get through in the least stressful way possible?
I realize now that I haven’t updated you guys on school and all that but I’ll be moving into my apartment in New York soon. I share it with two other guys which is cool - way better than dorms lol. I’m really looking forward to living in the city and learning about what I’m passionate about. If any of you guys are from the city or nearby hit me up, I don’t know anyone there haha.
My friend just outed me to this guy I just met and I think she outed me to some of my other friends too lol yay
The biggest difference I’ve noticed since starting T is that I need to sleep a LOT more. I used to sleep ~8 hours a night and now I need to sleep 10-12 hours per night to feel fully rested the next day. But during the day I have a lot more energy, which is good.
