A Plethora of Big Updates
Post-Summer 2023 Activist and Personal News
Hey funky people, it’s been a little while, but a lot has happened (as it tends to do.
Following my travels around the US and Uk, I was inspired to use my time off from my seasonal work to explore potential cities to relocate to from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I also used the time to do advocacy work and plan some of my biggest projects yet.
I visited Albuquerque, New Mexico, Orlando, Florida, and Austin Texas, and am excited to announce that I plan to move to Albuquerque next spring! I chose ABQ because of its warm climate, short winters, affordable cost of living, spiritual community, and also for the hell of it. The “hell” implying the literally venturing into the desert to seek my fortune, moving to a foreign landscape completely unique from where I’ve lived for 26 years, and just because it felt like the next right step.
I’ve lived in my hometown of Milwaukee my entire life, it is all I’ve known, and now that I’ve traveled and connected internationally, I feel confident to finally make the change I have been longing for in escaping Wisconsin winter and the Midwestern bore. It will be one of the grandest transitions of my life, and I am nervous, but I feel confident to handle all of the ups and downs with maturity and resilience. I have family to help me along, and friends to help me settle in.
I’m taking on a lot at once as I move into this fall, including moving into the editing stage of my memoir. The initial writing process is complete and now the work begins on the first draft of an edited copy, tentatively titled “Transcending Transgender.” There isn’t much to include here other than to pump myself up to get down to business on the most extensive creative project of my life. :)
While I was traveling and socializing with wise crones, I accepted part of myself that I had been dreading coming up but new was coming soon—reproductive urges… That is to say it politely, I refuse to proclaim “baby fever” but it is a deep understanding that motherhood and nurturance is what I plan for my future. As I remain a tragic hopeless romantic figure, I decided to quell this stirring the best way I can in my current situation… adopting 2 baby kittens!
Professor Jordan B Caterson, and Jazzy Jazzpur are 11 week old brothers I adopted from a foster family working for Milwaukee Domestic Animal Control. I am mightily pleased to say that they are completely securely attached to me, and cat motherhood is suiting me well. You may be keen to know how the rats are taking to their new brothers… Sadly, the famous boys are not fond of the cats, and they are kept separately, while I ensure to love both species the best I can. Separate, but equal species. Make sure to watch my Twitter for frequent kitten photos and videos.
There’s a lot of other big updates that happened this summer, but I’ll save those for another post and remember to churn out material for you guys this fall!
