I just want to say I regret the fact that it has been so long since I’ve posted on here. It wasn’t my intention to be such a slacker. That being said, a lot has been going on in my life.
For starters, I wrote about starting at UM-Flint. I finished my first semester with a 3.7 GPA. The sad part about this is when tallying up the work in the class I received a B+ in, I would have/should have had an A. Due to some attendance snafus caused by Your Ride, the public transport service here, I had my grade dropped, so I lost out on the possibility of a 4.0. Though my GPA was good enough, I didn’t make the Dean’s List because I only took 11 credit hours and you have to have 12. This next semester I’m taking 12 and am determined to make the Dean’s List!
Ashtyn transferred in from APU to UM-Flint. She’ll be finishing up her degree in Psychology and Anthropology and then plans to get an additional Bachelor’s in Forensics. She won’t be able to get that degree at UM-Flint though. She transferred in with a 3.9 GPA. She will be taking most of her classes at UM-Flint online so she can help me during my classes, on campus. I’m really happy for her.
AND…speaking of Ashtyn we celebrated our 7th anniversary on November 27!! Robert turned 15 on November 5. He still looks about 10 though. Braxton, meanwhile is still 5, Kevin turned 40 on November 20th and I just turned 29 yesterday! All in all, the family is doing pretty okay!
Ashtyn, Jerry (a friend from UM-Flint) and I finished casting for our upcoming internet TV show, FACESPACE. It is going to be really funny. We will begin filming in late January/early February and I am very excited to be purchasing my first professional camera with leftover loan money from this semester. I know the money could be spent elsewhere, but this is a serious investment towards my lifelong career pursuits.
In other news, we are actively looking for a new house, still in the Flint, MI area. I still want to eventually live in Connecticut, near New York, but since Ash and I are both in school here for the next few years, it’ll be nice to find a more comfortable living location. We also hope to have a van this year. We’ve had a lot of setbacks trying to get a van, but hopefully this is our chance to finally have one!
My transition is finally starting to move in the right direction and I am EXTREMELY THRILLED about this. My name change is getting finalized. I will officially be Dominick very very soon! I also am getting set up with a therapist at UM Ann Arbor that takes my insurance! Traveling to Ann Arbor with no vehicle of my own is going to be a costly endeavor, but it is going to be well worth it as I get my letter of recommendation to finally start testosterone. This is over seven years in the coming. I am so giddy at the thought of finally being on T!
Anyhow, stay tuned for more postings. I’m planning to do more video blogs, just because I won’t have a lot of time to type up full length posts, but I do plan to make this site more active. It really is a beautiful site![tags]Dominick Evans, FACESPACE, video, blogging, UM-Flint, acting, theater, classes, grades[/tags]
