Hello! A lot of my LJ friends have gradually stopped posting and my friends pages is... pretty empty these days. I'm looking to meet some new people! I'm sure some of you out there are awesome and I'd love to know you.

I'm a 26-year-old queer trans guy living in Vancouver, BC. I grew up in the Maritimes, and three years ago, I moved from a coastal city on one side of the continent to a larger coastal city on the other side of the continent. I have a bachelor's degree and a half in music (the half was specifically in music composition), and I'm currently working on becoming a paralegal. (I still play and write music, mostly just for myself.) I'm not a hundred percent sure what I'm doing with my life. If I hate working in law, I plan to stick with it for long enough to save up for grad school and do a master's in occupational therapy. In my work, I want to find some way, however small, to help make the world a more just, less oppressive place.

I keep my journal friends-locked, because I want to know who's reading it. This seems unlikely now, but I wouldn't want, say, my Mom to accidentally or deliberately stumble upon it. (I had an online journal when I was fourteen that my Mom did end up reading, and things got kind of ugly for a while.)

The most recent posts in my journal are about:
- a blog post a friend linked me to that's a theoretical analysis of a particular gay sex practice
- the cat I adopted yesterday! (you can probably expect several more about her)
- daily life
- poetry (not by me) that I enjoyed and wanted to save and share  (not something I post frequently, just once in a while)
- some thoughts on a book I was reading about urban exploration
- my excitement about getting a cat and some nervousness about starting a new semester with more difficult courses and then trying to find a job when I'm done my program
- some mental health stuff
- more mental health stuff
- a coffee date I went on
- a song and some thoughts about place

I have ongoing struggles with mental health, and that's something I write about in my journal. I have PTSD and sometimes I struggle with depression and anxiety. Occasionally I do write about the gory details of events that led to my PTSD, but that stuff gets put behind a cut so that anyone reading it is making the choice to do so.

Some things I'm not comfortable reading about: weight loss, and misogynistic, racist, homophobic, fatphobic or transphobic content.
