ALKaline Progress

I just wanted to do a quick update,
I had a great christmas and spent a lot of time with my family but I’m glad things are starting to wind down. I’ve spent most of the past week hanging out with my girlfriend and playing Skyrim/Little Big Planet 2 on my new ps3 (thank you mom and dad!). Both are great games if you haven’t given them a try. Yesterday my girlfriend and I went shopping and while we didn’t find any clothes, I did pick up some Urban Decay 24/7 Rockstar eyeliner at Sephora and a new face cleanser from Lush. I am excited about both of them and I will be sure to comment on them in the future once I know whether they are each worth the $20 price tag.

The last thing I have to talk about is a rather exciting bit of news, and possibly the only important thing I will talk about in this post. I have finally sent in the forms to legally change my name! I am so excited that I am finally moving forward with the next step of my transition. Once my paperwork is processed(most likely within a few weeks) I will get a call from the family & probate court and I will have to pick a court date to go before a Judge or court Magistrate to have my name changed. After that It should be pretty much official unless I have to run a note in the paper saying that I am changing my name.

I finally decided to change my first and middle name to Abbey Lorraine. My mother’s name is Lorraine and I thought it sounded pretty good with Abbey. The best part is that my initials will be the exact same as they were before, ALK.

On that note I hope that everyone has a wonderful new year and I will talk to you all again in 2012!
