Okay, so I stink at writing about sections. My whole previous description of me consisted of saying I’m a “middle aged mother”. Yeah, not very informative. Course Julie’s only description was they’re a teenager. Let’s try this again…
My pseudonym on this blog is Michelle. My real name is completely different, I yelled into the living room one night for Julie to pick a fake name for me and that’s what they chose. I am technically middle aged although I’m planning on living until I’m at least 100 so I’ve got four more years until I reach the halfway point.
I’m an atheist and a vegan and my favourite colour is green. Well, not really. My favourite colour is iridescent but I’ve been told by umpteen billion people that’s not really a colour so I just say green now. I’m a demi-romantic asexual (complete with five cats and an albino frog). I described myself as boring once and was promptly told I’m too colourful and sparkly to describe myself as boring; which is one of the nicest things anyone’s ever said about me. In real life I’m the person who says “hi” every time someone enters a room… even if I’ve already said “hi” to them six times in the past hour. I tend to wear lots of bright colours, mismatched socks, and my running shoes have sparkly silver laces. I’m autistic and struggle with major depressive disorder and severe anxiety. I’ve written two novels (which need publishing) but stopped writing more due to depression. I’m slowly working on a new book now.
My oldest child is Emma, which isn’t her real name either. I picked Emma because it was the name I’d have given Julie if we knew she was a girl at birth. Emma’s twenty-one years old and dating Mark (whose name I simply picked at random). Emma’s struggled with anxiety and depression for years and has been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder. She and Mark have an adorable orange tabby and a tiny calico.
My youngest child is Julie, which is also not her real name. I originally picked the name Jeremy because that’s the name I’d chosen for Emma if she’d been a boy. Then, when Julie announced she was female I simply picked a name at random.
Julie is nineteen years old. When I started this blog she identified as bisexual then bigender, agender, and finally gender fluid. Now she’s female, with the pronouns she and her.
Julie has also been diagnosed with high functioning autism. She also struggles with anxiety and has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder (type II).
Julie is obsessed with electronics, especially computers, and loves rebuilding them. I constantly have electronic bits and pieces all over the apartment. We don’t have cable but she’s watched every single episode of Doctor Who on Netflix and is fascinated with The Young Turks on YouTube. Her goal is to someday work with computers, maybe as a programmer… hopefully something with robotics. Julie enjoys playing Five Nights At Freddys, Fear, Minecraft, and Garry’s Mod. Her favourite colour is purple (with pink a close second) and she has a burning need to acquire every purple thing she sees, whether she needs it or not. Julie also loves driving RC cars, trucks, drones, and the occasional boat (almost as much as she loves taking them apart to see how they work).
All three of us are atheists and both Julie and I are vegan.
The easiest way to reach me is by sending me a message via Facebook. The next best is to email me at email@example.com. I also have a seldom used Twitter account, a regularly used Instagram account, and my above mentioned often used Facebook page. I don’t have any other accounts (other than my personal Facebook account which is under a completely different name) so if you see another, please let me know.
I got added to a blogroll which requests being shared if added. I don’t actually have a blogroll, something I should add someday, but can share it here. Feel free to go wander through Transiness.
The graphics on my banner were all made by Studio Flergs. Run to her page… she’s got amazing stuff! Everything in the banner is from her Choose to Shine collection, except for the twinkle in Julie’s eye, which is from her contribution to the Commencement May Digiscrap Parade.
Happy reading 🙂
