My given name is Billy, though I often use Jessica, and I am 24 years old and living in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I am transgender, being born male but having always identified with females. I still am male in appearance, and I can't see that changing anytime soon.
I'm usually shy, but when I get to know someone I break out from my shell, to the point where it's hard to shut me up. I enjoy learning about the world and all its cultures, religions, histories, and languages. I am only fluent in my native English, however, but I'm working on getting a conversational knowledge of a few others, especially French & Russian.
I've taken Aerospace Engineering and Computer Science as majors in school, though I'm still looking for that which I can see myself doing for the rest of my life. I have interests in vastly different fields, from ancient history to subatomic physics, that I can't just see myself settling with one thing. Though I do enjoy writing, and I would love it if I could find a career in that, allowing me to write about all the things I enjoy. I have some fanfiction online, and I'm looking forward to getting my blog up and running as well.
I usually write about everything I can in my entries, varying from the events of my day, to my thoughts on current and past events, to speculations about several of my fandoms. I am an Agnostic, but I love learning about religion, and I am also anti-capitalist, though I love to hear what people from all across the political spectrum have to say about things. That is, unless it's racist, sexist, homophobic, or transphobic....you get the idea.
I have journal entries in both English and French. My French is not perfect, but I want to figure it out. I know some of you don't speak it, or don't want to read my journal in a foreign language, thus I'll be making those updates in French viewable to only those who want it as such. Or in French...J'ai l'entrées en français et en anglais. Mon français n'est pas parfait, mais je veux apprendre. Je sais que certaines personnes parmi vous ne parlez pas ou ne voulez pas lire ma journal dans une langue étrangère, donc je vais faire ceci 'amis seulement' pour toutes les entrées en français. Si vous voulez lire y, laissez-moi savoir.
