I swear I could have made this. I know this person has since entered transition but...yeah. This is my life.

Maybe one day I'll walk into a classroom and I'll be a picture perfect girl. And maybe I'll walk into the classroom the very next day and be the very essence of a man...still doesn't make me feel any better about my life, I try to pretend it does but it doesn't...this is a fuckin' mindfuck

I only have 900 words left of my Lit paper. *collapses*I'll probably do research tomorrow, because there's no way I can make my conclusion that long.

Now, to work on my speech for a bit...

So...trudging on with my genderqueer...thing,whatever. Something I really haven't talked about a lot because I'm still grappling with it...

My name.

I...I haven't felt like it fits right for awhile. Probably as long as the boobs haven't felt right. But it's a part of me, you know? I tried to come to compromise with my pen name, but...that's someone else. It's not me. Astin Darby is still more female than I think I am. And you know, that's okay. Given what I write, it's better. But...

I want a name that fits me.

Now, I'm not about to start asking everyone to start calling me something else. Esp. not Bri, though she probably would if I asked. Because she's like that.

I just...I want something to fall back on. Something I can tell people if I don't want them to know my bio. gender right off.

So, I did research and found these names. Input all?

AERON: Welsh unisex form of feminine Celtic Agrona, name a goddess of war and death who was portrayed as a masculine figure in Welsh mythology, meaning "carnage, slaughter."
AERYN/ARIN: Variant of Irish unisex Erin, meaning "peace."
AKI: Japanese unisex name meaning "autumn; bright."
ALIX: English variant of unisex Alex, meaning "defender of mankind."
ANDY: English unisex nickname for Andrew and Andrea, both meaning "man; warrior."
ARDEN: English unisex name derived from a place name meaning "eagle valley."
ASHTON: English unisex name derived from a place name, meaning "ash tree settlement."
AUSTYN: Unisex form of masculine English Austin, meaning "venerable."
AYOMIDE: African Yoruba unisex name meaning "my joy has arrived."

EDIT: Doing research on my given name.

Latinized form of ALICE
From the Old French name Alis, a short form of Adelais, itself a short form of the Germanic name Adalheidis (see ADELAIDE). This name became popular in France and England in the 12th century. It was borne by the heroine of Lewis Carroll's 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' (1865) and 'Through the Looking Glass' (1871).
French name derived from German Adalheidis, meaning noble sort, from athel noble and haidu kind; sort

One site lists Adelaide as feminine, another as masculine. So...that's another good possiblity
