Picking your name is a big deal and can seem like a daunting task at times. The best piece of advice I think I could give you is pick a name that really fits you. This is what you’re going to go by for the rest of your life and it has to feel good to you. If you want you could make a list of names you like/are important to you in some way wether it’s a family name or someone who inspired you or whatever it may be. You can try out those different names and see which one you like best and ask the people around you (friends, family, or even tumblr) which ones they like as well for some more opinions on the topic. It’s a very strange feeling to get to pick your name and I hope you end up figuring it out and enjoy it as you slowly start to grow into your name. Sending good vibes your way. Have a fantastic day :)
Spanish is a beautiful language. You don’t say “I love you” in Spanish, you say “yo quiero comer culo” which translates to “you are the light of my life” which I think is one of the most beautiful things to say to someone
bahaha dumb asses lol That doesn’t mean you are the light of my life, it means I want to eat your ass. Idiots. haha

Hi Erik! That’s a mighty cool name by the way. My little brother’s name is Eric with a ‘c’ but similar haha. Anyways, I am wondering if you have confronted your friends and family about this issue yet or if you are asking me this before talking to them. If you have confronted them about it, do you know if they are deliberately using the wrong name and pronouns because they’re upset about you transitioning or is it accidental? If it is indeed accidental, from my experience, they often won’t even realize they are slipping up in certain circumstances. For instance, my friends and family would slip up all the time, especially when talking about things in the past tense and they wouldn’t even realize they were doing it until I confronted them with it and told them I would like them to try and switch to male pronouns and my real name. It’s a tough thing for them to do so try and be as gentle and polite about the subject because they wouldn’t want to deliberately make you upset, and trust me, I know how upsetting it gets. Being pre-everything I think makes it exceptionally difficult for some people because, despite the fact that you see yourself as a male, sadly the rest of society may not see things in that light as soon as you open your mouth. If and when you decide to begin taking testosterone and you begin to experience more physical changes, people will often start making the transition over to all male pronouns and using your name a lot quicker because it clicks better in their minds. I know that is frustrating but the process of everyone switching over will happen a lot quicker at that point but until then, just give it time because although the process may be slow, you are breaking through to them and they just need to be given the time to adjust after calling you by another name and different pronouns for your entire life up until now. It’s a difficult thing for everyone involved but try not to be too harsh, I assure you, if it is accidental, they are trying but everyone is human and we all make mistakes. I wish you well on your journey Erik and I hope this helped.
Sooooo…my mom found out about my money that I made last year working while I said I was “going to hang out with friends” because she didn’t want me to work and wanted me to focus on school because it was a crazy workload…Soooo that’s fun. Luckily she didn’t ask too many questions as to what all I was doing to make that much money. I mean, I wasn’t just going to sit by the wayside after my dad decided it was a good idea to gamble my college savings away so I had to do something. She said she thought I had gone against her rules for the year though when she saw my uniform go through the wash and thought maybe I had just gotten it at Salvation army or something haha. Well, at least that’s all cleared up now so now I won’t be getting questions about how I’m paying for college when I get up there but I will definitely be keeping this money in my name only because I’m not risking losing it all again. Next job, hopefully the Knuckle Saloon at Sturgis for their 75th anniversery rally. Apparently you can make close to $1000 a day as a barback which is what I’m looking at applying for. About $5000 in a week of backbreaking work would be AMAZING!
The Buddhists say if you meet somebody and your heart pounds, your hands shake, your knees go weak, that’s not the one. When you meet your ‘soul mate’ you’ll feel calm. No anxiety, no agitation(via psych-facts)
