Kristin's Quest: In Search of Myself

Searching for who I really am, and what that means for me and the people I love.

I know this is what you’re selling, but are these the customers who will buy this?

I know this is what you’re selling, but are these the customers who will buy this?

So last night, I had some time to kill and decided to see Sharknado 2: The Second One at the movie theater in its one-night-only showing.

I hope they made their money elsewhere, because there were only five people in the room at the theater where I watched. So the experience was not what I was hoping for. It made me really glad that my DVR had erased the movie before it was finished, because…

So close and yet

So close and yet

One thing I have not been terribly successful with, in the process of coming to understand myself better is connecting with others on similar journeys. It takes a lot to overcome my anxieties and allow myself to go somewhere new.

Last night was the local interfaith Pride service. And while I entertained thoughts of going, the reality was that the result was likely to be the same as last year: not…

Customer Service Missteps #2

Customer Service Missteps #2

A few months ago, UPS bothered mewith their reaction to a situation I had with their deliveries.

So, my suspicions: 1) it’s fallen in…

The Gratitude Post #1

The Gratitude Post #1

I know I am guilty of coming to the Internet for support. (Not that that’s something to feel guilty about.) What I don’t do as well is sharing my joys. (A large part of that could be because I don’t do a good job of that in my own life.) So I hope this is the first of a semi-regular series of things I’m grateful for. I’m not sure if it will tend to focus on one thing or a list, but for today,…

That Great Supermarket-Line of Life

That Great Supermarket-Line of Life

A local news personality ((Hello, @BlaineStewart!)) tweeted a link to an article about Why You End Up in the Slowest Supermarket Line that I found really fascinating.

I mean, the math was pretty common sense, when you think about it. If there are three lines, you have a 1-in-3 chance of choosing the right line, and twice that of choosing the wrong line. (And the more lines there are to choose…

All trans girls are worthy of protection, not just the ones who you find beautiful.
