My name is Damien Knight. I am a 32-year-old female to male trans-person. Today is my birthday. I have lived as male since 2009. I was on testosterone for 3 years and desperately want to get back on it. I also desire one other thing, top surgery.

I have lived 32 years in a body that causes me discomfort, anxiety and depression. The dysphoria once was so bad I attempted suicide. Today I no longer try die but I think if I had surgery I would be less depressed. This year I hope to raise 1000 toward my goal. Please, for my birthday I ask that people donate toward my surgery fund. Thank You.

School Started Last Week

Written by Damien Knight
on 6/14/12
So last week the summer semester started. I had taken spring semester as a break from classes, so I was a bit rusty. So much so I forgot the semester started last week and not this week. Oops, my bad. Anyway, been catching up as much as I can. Philosophy class is awesome but Spanish sucks big time.

Why does Spanish suck? Well, it’s just not challenging enough. I am a week late, yet I did a whole week of class work in one day. I mean really it shouldn’t be so easy. I been told to just go with it.

I can’t wait till fall classes. I will take classes concerning my major in the fall. I am a Biology Major at a community college. I absolutely love doing biology but to be honest I can’t wait till I graduate and move to a university that way I can do what I love: Geology.

I have always wanted to be a Palaeontologist and I am hoping a Geology Major with a Biology Minor will get me closer.

Anyway, I hope to write many awesome things in this blog about various topics for now.

Update Note: I wrote this in a blog I originally had on blogger. It was called Into the Shadow’s View. I forgot I even had a Blogger. It now is a new extension of this blog called “The Shade of Writing on Blogger”. I doubt I will post stuff there often but it makes it easier I think for me to comment on blogs ran on Blogger.

As for this post I am now at University studying Geology. I ended up dropping my minor. It was better just to focus on my major. With that I would like to remind everyone that this semester I have a research trip to the Mojave. If you wish to help fund that please click the donate button for it below. Thanks.

My New Year’s Resolutions

By Aaron Knapp

Most of my resolutions are renewals or like a to do list here goes:

1. No biting nails. This is a bad habit, and one I would like to not do as it’s bad on my nails.

2. No alcohol. This has been on my resolution for the past several years, so the renewal.

3. Give thanks to those that provided it last year. Certain things happened for a reason, so I need to give the necessary thanks.

4. Relearn Japanese. When I was younger a foreign exchange teacher taught me the basics of Japanese. I would like to relearn this language as its still my favorite foreign country.

5. Studies for job. I have certain job requirements I need to study for.

6. Limit beef intake. I have issues it seems eating beef, so it’s best to limit this for health reasons.

7. Limit cheese intake. It’s either the beef or the cheese causing my health issues. The cheese issue is a limit not an absolute.

8. Travel to Japan to get household stuff/birthday gifts. I got to have my gachapons.

. 9. Solve that pesky Rubik’s cube. My dad solves these I would like to share.

10. Improve my photo’s.

Journal Seven: Cursed So Done!

Written in 2006 By Damien Knight

My narrative is cursed! I lost the disk file 5 times and the USB file once. I love to write but writing the same paper 50 times is too much! That is all I can say!

Thoughts on this journal.

Seriously I remember this. USBS had just came out. This incident was the final straw and why I dropped English 100. I was tired of the teacher talking about how she hated to write. I was pissed she added a question on the test involving a football teams score in the game the night before. But after explaining that my floppy disk got a virus she still wouldn’t accept my narrative because it was late. I walked out of class and dropped it. I took the course at a community college later and passed. A TA should never teach a course like that.

Journal 1: Thoughts on The Gap Year First Learning and Then College

 

Written in 2006 By Damien Knight

I remember my senior year. It was good but a tough year. The thought of college after was daunting. Unlike the girl in this essay I could not wait a year.

I am so glad I didn’t wait. I may not return next year because I am getting married. Then again, I might just come back. If it wasn’t for Western Kentucky University, I wouldn’t have had Aaron for my own.
Current thoughts on this old journal piece.

Do you ever like dig through your old things and find you owned one of those ridiculous pink locked journals? This might relate only to my female readers but, reading this made me feel like I stumbled on a teenage girl’s diary. To think I turned that in as a college writing assignment. OMG!
