So this is the blog I kept saying I’d start eventually. I’m still not quite sure what I’ll write in here or how scattered the topics will be but people on Twitter don’t seem to mind the fact I whiplash between IT work, politics, videogames, technology, transition baggage, retro gaming and geek culture so lets see if that is portable to a blog platform.
I’ll at least attempt to write in an entertaining way.
So if you somehow stumbled on this haplessly, somehow, I’ll just introduce myself. My name is Rae. I’m a transwoman living in Halifax, Nova-Scotia with a background in IT work, animation and technology. I originally herald from the awesome Acadian municipality of Clare on the southwestern shore of the same province. That means I’m fluent in both English and something that vaguely resembles French if you add in a heavy dose of alcohol, English and sometimes even something resembling Spanish and medieval peasant French, culminating into something we like to call “Acadian French.” Y’va pah awoir much de ça icette, doh, parce que c’est d’la misare à l’écrire comme du monde.
Expect me to write about all the things I mentioned in the first paragraph, and maybe some artwork. This may coalesce into more consistency as I develop this thing. But only time will tell.
Now here’s a video of my cat purring while I rub her ear for no reason.
