What a busy week!
First I had my name change on Tuesday, and today, took a couple more steps. I started off the afternoon by going to the DMV and getting everything changed there. I have my temporary ID with my new name (AND gender marker adjusted!), and get my new ID in a week or so in the mail.
Then I said why not, I have time, and stopped by one of my banks and changed my information there. The temporary ID with the judge-signed name change declaration was enough to get things changed there too, with a new debit card coming in the mail in… a week or so (theme there?).
Third, I came out to one of my roommates (finally!). I have two male and one female roommate, and I came out to her. She was just as supportive as I thought she would be, and after a ~10-15 minute conversation, we hugged and are as good as we were before. Just the two guys to go… I think they’ll be guys, but no less supportive, but I’m sure will ask few questions, and probably won’t end in a hug either. They’ll be fine though, I have faith!
I’m just sitting here finally getting off the adrenaline high from the day, drinking lots of water and finally getting my BP under control. I’ll end the post here because I just need to relax.
I hope you have all as great as a week as I have, because you can bet your behind, I’ve had one of the better ones I’ve had in a long time!
