Thoughts over tea: Moving houses

Blog

Content warning: discussion about racism and being racist as a white person I lived in my childhood home for fifteen years and about nine-or-so months. I didn’t move very far, only to the next town, but I did move. And I moved again. After gradually moving from a village to a town to a city […]

To be trans, to be male, to be femme


Misc

I can often be seen wearing makeup from the simplest nude base to the flashiest lipstick. I wear chains with sparkling stones on my hair, charm necklaces, pearl rings, beads. When I came out as trans I ditched makeup for good. I never thought I’d go back, after feeling like putting my face on every […]

Another good year – a recap, plans, the usual


Misc

Time for reflection, plans and good old I’m-sure-I’m-gonna-go-to-the-gym-this-year statements? I decided to write one of these myself as well. Here’s a super quick look at my 2015: I finished my first year of university and started the second. I was quite ill for a long time and later found out I have asthma. My anxiety […]

HRTeaspionage: 2kk testoilla // 2 months on testosterone


Misc

Here’s another post about the effects of testosterone treatment! Month two, you all. Seuraava teksti sisältää yksityiskohtia juonesta. Ja genitaaleista, karvoista ja muista kivoista jutuista jotka saattavat olla too much information! Toisen kuukauden muutokset olivat ensimmäiseen verrattuna aika samantasoisia.  Karvojen kasvu on jatkunut: poikaystävä sanoi että käsivarteni ovat karvaisemmat kuin ennen vaikken itse olisi ehkä […]

Paris, Beirut, Baghdad


Misc

  There is a lot of misery in the world, and saddening events happen every day. In the western world it’s easy to only sympathise with the events that happen close to us, or indeed in Europe or Northern American countries, or so it seems in the press. The BBC, The Guardian, Helsinki Times, tabloids: […]

Students’ Union elections!


Misc

Hey all! Sorry about the absence: I’ve been busy. We had a bit understaffed week at work so it’s just been me and Frank. We’ve done just fine but it’s meant more shifts for me. I actually didn’t have a single day off last week with work and university!  But to the topic: elections. The […]

HRTeaspionage: Month 1 // 1 kk


Misc

Ensimmäinen kuukausi testosteronihoidon aloittamisesta meni hurjan nopeasti, niinkin nopeasti että oli oikeastaan vaikeaa pitää muutoksista kirjaa. En kiireisen elämänrytmini vuoksi ole saanut kiinni onko mielialassani tapahtunut isoja suuntaan taikka toiseen. Ehkä pinna on aavistuksen lyhentynyt, mutta se voi johtua normaalista stressistäkin. Samoin tuntuu, että mieliala on ehkä korkeintaan tasaantunut, mutta samalla silloin kun ahdistusta on, […]

Nunhead Art Trail


Misc

I was looking forward to this year’s art trail a lot: I had planned to walk the entire route and to spend the entire weekend visiting the newly created hot spots of South London art. However, I quickly realised that was not going to happen, and I was to spend my weekend planning a gender-variant […]

New almost bilingual series: HRTeaspionage


Misc

As many of you know, I’m transgender. Not a secret. This post series is going to describe a part of my transition, namely HRT or hormone replacement therapy. In my case testosterone injections. I’m aiming to write one post a month, around the time I get my injection, and log my experiences. I’ll create these […]

Cons, outings, and more


Misc

Every now and then I pack my bag and head out to the wild, book a ticket or two to Finland and make myself at home on friends’ floors or my mother’s guest room. This time I had some roleplaying friends who planned going to Tracon, a cosplay and roleplaying centric event in Tampere. We […]
