I just went to my music folder and found a handful of songs with Los Angeles/California in the title and a few of my favorite songs about this place… though most of them are pretty cynical about this place. Though there is much to be said about the negatives of California, this place is so diverse, beautiful, alive… I will always be proud to say I’m from California.
With that said, after almost a year in this apartment and close to 2 in LA, It’s time to move on. I’m looking at a few options, Seattle, Denver, Chicago, San Diego, maybe back to NYC, i’m a bit overwhelmed! My apartment situation is demanding a move, and I’m able to basically go wherever I can afford. I don’t want to stay in LA, I’ll go through reasons, but mostly it’s the car-reliant living and air quality. I need to really focus on health and transition right now, I made a series of goals a few months ago when I hurt my hand, and my trip to the clean air of Colorado provided me the clarity I desperately needed. My goals are as follows, and i’ll break up the monotony with random crinkle pics over the last few weeks.
1.) Get Healthy – Not to say I’m drastically unhealthy, I take pretty good care of myself most of the time, but like everyone I should really see a real Dr. with some consistency, not just for hormones and STD tests. I need to get a primary care physician for both my general heath and for my transition, I simply don’t get the tests I need to make sure the hormones aren’t doing any damage. I need to get off the pills and on injections as well as start seeing a therapist regularly. These needs aren’t going to be fulfilled in my current situation, I know, I’m needy, but a switch to a less populated place with a better doctor to needy patient ratio is much needed. Also, I developed Asthma after my first summer in LA, a fine reason to move to a less toxic place.
Hugs everyone! I’ll be busy busy busy tonight, filming a local trans event for GJLA, something fun and positive. I’m excited about next months new adventure, i’ve given my 30 days and am moving out no matter what… but to where? I know a change like this, or my transition, isn’t going to instantly grant me a better life, or free me from depression/bad habits, but it’s a good start. I’m not running away from anything but rather always running towards something. I’ll keep you posted as things progress, have an awesome Saturday and more cuddles soon from your little wanderer 🙂
