The Rocket Sled To Chickville
Alright. If you're not a regular reader of my blog, go read this first, then come back.
Since I came out as transgender here on the blog back in June, a LOT has been happening in my life. I'm working three jobs, I'm making new friends, and most importantly, I'm achieving serious progress in my transition. I've finally started venturing out in public occasionally presenting as my target gender, and those outings have been far more successful than I would have imagined. Now I'm on the verge of moving into a new place with someone who is a trans ally, and if I can make that happen, I'm going to be on the Rocket Sled to Chickville.
Just a few weeks ago, I never would have thought that I'd be presenting as a woman when I visit Seattle in October. Now? I might look more like this when I come to the Seahawks/Titans game October 13:
As I've written before, the thought of coming to a Seahawks game dressed as a woman is somewhat terrifying (especially if I have to use the restrooms), but it might be time to do it. The Seahawks have been a major part of my life since I was 8 years old, and I'm itching to enjoy them as my authentic self. I KNOW my next jersey purchase is going to be a women's cut blue Wilson, and I plan to snag one in October if I have the necessary means.
To a lot of people this is going to sound bugfuck crazy, but it's the truth: I'm hoping to be living full time as a woman by January 2014. There are a lot of reasons for this, but I have to admit a big one is my desire to celebrate our Super Bowl XLVIII victory as a woman. The day the Seahawks win the Super Bowl will be the 3rd best day of my life, and if I can celebrate as Johnnie rather than Johnny, that triumph will feel even sweeter.
Soooo... that's what's going on with me these days :)
