About me - For the new people (and those that want a refresher)

Hello!

My name is Effie. I’m 26 years old and live in the great state of Washington. I work at a local non-profit as a training specialist and love my job, though I’m currently finishing up my degree in project management. 

I’m queer. Meaning I’m attracted to all people on the gender spectrum though I’m generally more attracted to females and non-binary people. My criteria for partners is difficult to explain but I’m most happiest when I can have my own space - I will happily spend the night most  nights but when I want to be alone I need to be alone. It makes finding a partner a chore. I’m also very devoted to my work - soooo, there’s that. 

I have two cats, Wheatley and Bones. They are my Wheat and Wheat-by-products. I also have countless poochie nephews and nieces that will sometimes be featured here.

I’m also very sick. I try not to talk about it but sadly to say I am. I have been diagnosed with two autoimmune diseases (where your body’s immune system attacks and destroys healthy body tissue) - Graves Disease (currently post-radiation hypothyroid, working on getting levels back up) and Rheumatoid Arthritis.

I swim, run (on good pain days), bike, hike and kayak/row. Most mornings and evenings begin with yoga and my cats LOVE to get in my face for that. 

I have tattoos and I’m currently in the process of procuring more. So far my plans include finishing up my science sleeve, two thigh tattoos (Crows before Bros and Eat the Rude), and then another sleeve. I dye my hair blue most months and one day I will convince my hairdresser to take a pair of clippers to my sides. 

I play video games, write long ass stories, want to start a production of deaf Hawkguy, and run a non-profit. 

I also plan on buying a repossession and fixing it up. I want to buy land in the middle of the mountains and build various types of sustainable housing (treehouse, hobbit hole, tiny home, etc). I want a horse to go on overnight trips into the mountains, a dog to wander the woods and as many bikes and bows my home can handle.

I knit and needlepoint. I shoot bows and try to cook.

The character most like me is Bruce Banner - if he hung out with Clint Barton way too much.  

So, welcome to my blog and if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Coming out - wedding edition:
What’s all this finery? I’m nonbinary.
Have you got the plans? I’m trans.

Glad you’re here. I’m super queer. 
This wedding is great! I’m not straight. 

I’m SOBBING TEARS OF HAPPINESS. 
Never stop. 
Never surrender.

i do believe youre too young to have developed arthritis… but in the off chance, epsom salt in warm water + cold water switch off will help

Thank you for the advice and I don’t mean to sound rude but I need to correct you because this thinking is quite dangerous. I do have diagnosed arthritis - yes, I’m only 26 and yes I was diagnosed at 16.

I have what is called (Juvenile) Rheumatoid Arthritis - which is different from osteoarthritis (what most people think of and is due to wear and tear on the joint) and is an auto-immune disease that can affect anyone.

I have kept control of it quite well due to exercise, eating correctly and generally being a person that doesn’t complain too much about my pain. But that does not mean I don’t have it and it is not crippling at times.

So, yes, while I might be too young to have developed osteoarthritis (which can form in young adults who do stress exercises too young, such a running while joints are still forming - etc) I do actually have arthritis.

It was probably triggered because I had quite a bit of cheese yesterday which is an inflammatory. Thank you for your concern but PLEASE remember that just because someone is young does not mean that they don’t have, or can’t have, very terrible, debilitating illness.

me entering a room

My mom wants me to come out to my extended family because I’m bringing a female bodied friend and wearing a suit to my sister’s wedding. While I’m not straight, neither of these things have to do with not being straight.

My mom wants me to come out before the wedding so everyone can focus on my sister and not whether or not I’m super queer.   Maybe I should just do this at the wedding. 

Do this.
A thousand times yes.

How can I help make your mother super uncomfortable?

I named Wheatley ( my cat) correctly. 

When the light reflects off his eyes they glow blue.
