I live in Rowan county, Kentucky where all the crap is going down with the county clerk. Kim Davis has refused to issue licenses again today despite her appeal to the supreme court being denied. Contempt charges have been filed against her. Her and her deputy clerks are due in court on Thursday. Hopefully we will see marraige equality here soon. Wish us luck!

Hi Maggie! Unreasonably soon, I'm starting a three month long road trip to interview trans adults in rural areas, towns, and small cities about happiness, hope, and resilience. The trip is taking me from Morehead, KY to Baltimore, MD, and I'm taking two days for the drive because I'll also be working remotely, so driving it straight simply will not do. Western VA is halfway between them, and I've been known to make pop culture pilgrimages. Where should I stay that is most like Henrietta? Thanks!

Dear transresilienceroadtripproject,

There are several Raven Cycle related places that you might poke your head into on the way. 

Lexington/ Goshen, VA

I might suggest first poking your head into Lexington, VA, particularly off the beaten path near Goshen, VA.

Madison County

Home of great hiking, secret farms, and the all boys boarding school Woodberry Forest, which is far less corrupt than Aglionby.

I hope you find many beautiful things and lots of resilient people.

     “I want to make it as an actor for an entirely selfish reason. It’s not like, ‘Oh, I want to make it as an actor so I can have a ton of money and do great things for humanity.’ I just want to be a household name. I want to be famous, so I can walk down the street and people would say, ‘Oh my God, it’s you!’ ‘Yeah, it’s me!’ ‘Can I take your picture?’ ‘Definitely.’ I want to be one of those cool famous dudes, like Robert Downey Jr. or Bryan Cranston or Weird Al. Everyone knows them, and everyone loves them. I just want to be loved. It’s not because I wasn’t loved enough as a kid or anything—I certainly was. I don’t really know why I feel this way. Maybe it’s because I’m misjudged a lot. I’m one of those really complicated dudes. I have a different face for each person that I’m with. Some of my friends would say things like, ‘Yeah, I can see where you’re coming from with your analysis of Machiavelli’s The Prince.’ Then another friend would be like, ‘Dude… boners.’ When I get those two friends together, it’s chaos: What do I do? What do I say?
     “I also can’t stand people who act like they know me: ‘Oh, I spent two minutes with you, so I know everything you’re about.’ When I was younger, I lived on a highway far outside of town, so I never got to grow up around any other kids. Because of that, I was antisocial as a kid. I was into reading and anime, and people told me, ‘Oh, you have Asperger Syndrome.’ ‘I don’t have Asperger Syndrome. I’m just into different stuff than everyone else.’ ‘Nooo, you do.’ I had a bad anger problem as a kid, too. People would press my buttons all the time because they knew I’d get mad. I ended up telling everyone a story of how when I was in kindergarten, I threw a chair at this guy. So yeah, that sticks with you throughout your school career.”
