A person who lives away from their native country, either from choice or compulsion
The blog title comes from this short story by Ursula K. LeGuin.
I'm Emerald, Emmy if I like you. Asexual, panromantic, agender, polyamorous, anxious and depressed (but medicated!), possibly autistic, budding pagan. They/them/their pronouns.
I'm pretty much always up for talking or answering questions about anything, so drop me an ask. I trigger warn for anything anyone needs, just let me know. Play nice, and I'd love to be friends with you.
[Image descriptions: several images of two ace pride tee shirts. One is purple and says, “The brain’s what counts…” on the front and, “…Everything else is transport.” on the back in white. The other is grey and says, “On a scale of 0-6, I’m an X” with the X in purple and everything else white.]
A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that I was going to make a couple of ace pride tee shirts. And I did! I also promised to post pictures of them, and that… didn’t happen. I got distracted. But here they are! The pictures were taken with my cell phone while standing on a chair, but you can see them, and that’s what’s important. Anyway, I’m quite pleased with the way they came out. Now the next thing is being confident enough to actually wear them.
I’m actually contemplating wearing one tomorrow, in honor of the last day of Asexual Awareness Week, but I’m hesitant because I intend to go shopping, which involves leaving my room and going somewhere where people will actually see me. On the positive side, though, I probably won’t see anyone I know.
