Another busy week has come and gone. I lost some hair last night trying to pull the Dawgs through, through the television. Whew! I can’t take too many more nail biters like that.
On Wednesday, I had the pleasure of speaking with an attorney at Georgia Legal Services Program (GLSP) about making their name change services more known to the transgender population at UGA. They are going to send me some information to give to our LGBT Resource Center so that students will have easy access to legal help for a name change. Also, GLSP has agreed to let members of OUTlaw (who have paid their $10 dues *hint, hint) volunteer to draw up the paperwork and assist with the process. Needless to say, I’m really happy and proud to start this partnership between OUTlaw and GLSP to serve our trans community.
As much as I would like to be back in Atlanta next summer, it would be nice to intern in the GLSP Athens office so I could save some money on rent. I think I’ll probably apply there. Maybe I can get a weekend job too. This law school stuff is not for the lower and middle class!
On Friday, I was on a state call with the other law school LGBT student association presidents and the Stonewall Bar Association to talk about events that they are doing and how Stonewall really wants to support our law school LGBT organizations. It was cool to talk to everyone. I think that it will be good to have to opportunity to connect with other LGBT attorneys across the state.
I went to a get-together for Graduate Pride yesterday. It was fun to hang out with my people. We watched the football game, ate junk food, played Game of Nasty Things, and drank alcohol. I would say a good time was had by all. They’ve planned another outing next weekend, so I’m going to have to work hard this week to get all my stuff done to make time to go to the lake with everyone. Fingers crossed.
Last night at the party someone asked me if I was nervous about top surgery. I thought about it, and I’m just like no, not really. I mean, I’m nervous about the fact that I’m paying about $9000 for a chest surgery that I’m going to have to look at for the rest of my life. I hope that I’m not disappointed with the result, but I’m really excited about having a flat chest. I’m already planning a beach trip next summer with my friends in my head. haha
All the best,
