My god

It’s done. My paper is done.

…okay the writing part is done. Now I just need to set it up in APA style, which I’ve never used before, and then email it to my teacher before noon tomorrow.

I’m so cloooose!

Oh my God you have my sympathies D8 I had to do an APA style 5 page paper last year for my Music Cultures of Non-Western Worlds class and it was a total nightmare because my teacher had expected all of us to have already known it. DX

Oh man that does sound terrible. :< I’ve been working on this paper all week and it’s been such a pain.

Luckily Purdue OWL has this handy guide on APA style so I think I’ve got it down?

Ooh that’s good! But yeah it can be super tedious, and kind of ridiculous when you’re only doing it for a short paper since from the examples and help pages that I remember looking at, it looks like it’s more for like 20 page medical papers

Yeah really. It looks like it’s meant for a thesis paper. Why do I have to do that for a 7-10 page paper? I know MLA already, why can’t I use that?

On the left is Richie, my fiancé, about a year and a half into our relationship and pre-t. He had come out as trans to me about a few months prior to that. On the right is Richie 4 years later and almost 3 years on testosterone. We’ve been together almost 5 years now and his birthday is coming up.

I created a secret top surgery fund for him in hopes to surprise him for his birthday on August 30th. I’m not at all expecting $5000 to be raised by then, in fact, I don’t have any kind of expectation towards the amount raised before his birthday. I just wanted to get this started for him as a surprise to remind him that there are so many people that love him and support him and are wishing him a happy birthday and I know any amount donated would be the best birthday surprise he could ever receive.

Right now, Richie doesn’t believe that top surgery will ever be a reality for him and I want to change that incredibly dangerous mind set. A whopping 41% of trans* people attempt suicide. Richie’s dysphoria, negativity and hopelessness has been growing at an alarming rate. I want to do everything I can to prevent and/or limit the amount of pain he has to deal with on a daily basis. Top surgery would undoubtably eliminate a big chunk of it.

Richie has been medically transitioning for almost 3 years. He has identified as trans for about 4 years. In that time, he has seen so many of his friends within the community get top surgery and it has been a silent struggle for him. He has become more reclusive, isolated and depressed. I don’t want Richie to ever feel inhibited by his body and/or isolated because of it. This year for his birthday, I want him to truly believe that top surgery is entirely possible for him and unquestionably going to happen in the near future. I can’t do that alone, so I’m reaching out to his family, friends, my followers on tumblr, as well as any kind strangers who may know what it feels like to deal with dysphoria or just want to help out an amazing guy who has done so much for others. I honestly can’t imagine anything better than knowing that we all helped make it possible for him to live happily, authentically and without fear or insecurity of his identity, by contributing to the single most liberating and defining moment in his life. I know top surgery will change his life forever and I know that it is something that will give him back that contagious spark and thirst for life that he used to have and remind him that he once thought the world was beautiful and it still is.

Please spread the word by reblogging and if you’re capable of donating anything, you have no idea how much it is appreciated. No amount is too little so please do not feel embarrassed if you can only donate a dollar or two, I’m still just as humbled by your generosity.

For those of you who have already donated and/or have been reblogging and sharing this with your followers or friends, I am forever indebted to you all.

I will not stop reblogging this until he doesn’t ever have to worry about wearing a binder for 12+ hours a day and come home with bruises on his back, or be afraid that someone will see the outline of his binder through his shirt and be outed, or doesn’t have to close his eyes whenever he takes a shower because the sight of his chest right now makes him feel further disconnected from his body. This is no way to live and as his partner, I can’t sit idly by and allow him to continue half-living like this.

I’ve gotten in touch with Rodeoh.com, thanks to an amazing follower Stefanie. They have agreed to offer a $25 gift certificate to all contributors of $100 or more!!

Everyone prolly saw this stuff already, these were taken as soon as we got there (but after we made sure my host and generous benefactors’ friend was in the Mattel line). Walked past people with just DOZENS of Manny boxes- it wasn’t looking good initially. There were more little kids at the booth then I was expecting?? I srsly forget the fandom isn’t all adults, lol.
Met Garrett finally :D Ran into riggles323 and neptunableu, and some old comic cronies. Didn’t buy a whole lot, but had a ton of fun :D :D :D
