And now, for those who just joined us – I’m going to attempt to explain what my Facebook is all about?
Am I full-time?: No, and it may be quite some time – There’s a long journey ahead of me, and I’m still figuring things out.
What types of photos do I post?: Mostly me looking cute, or as formal as I can get, usually blending in with every other girl out there. I’ll leave the more daring flights of fantasy for when I slim down. I’d say I’ve got over 100 pounds to go, and I am managing about 3 pounds a week weight loss on average, after about five weeks back on track with Weight Watchers.
Some of your posts don’t seem to make sense!: It happens. I usually post whatever’s on my mind, and a lot of my posts are rather me-centric.
Are you out to anyone?: A handful of friends, including those I told, and those who found me from my “boy” Facebook. (No, I’m not telling you who it is. ^_^;)
Have you done any risque photos?: Yes, but not everyone get to see them. Don’t ask. You will know when you’re in the clique. ^_^;
What’s with the music, movie clips, and video/computer game posts?: Hey, I’m a gamergirl, sort of, and I have my pop culture loves. I’m still easily impressionable! ^_^;
Why do you follow the stereotypical expectations of liking anime and Hello Kitty?: Hey – I was an anime fan even when I was all the way in the closet, (cosplay kind of helped me prepare for getting out!) and Hello Kitty was because I’m making up for the childhood I didn’t get. (I envied my sis, and other girls, even grown-ups who still like Sanrio stuff. I have a small collection, but my anime VHS tape and DVD — and laserdiscs — are taking up more room than I have shelf space for!)
Did you start out dressing up as a fetish?: (*sigh*) Yes… but the important thing is that it is not the sole reason.
Have you been out in public?: Several times, since my first few steps out in early October 2010 – I usually get out about 2-4 times a month, sometimes more, depending on week to week.
Do you see yourself living full-time eventually?: Most likely, yes… But life is an adventure, and I’m trying to make the most of that adventure, and where it takes me, and hopefully not struggling and sacrificing too much along the way.
