Today I went to a cremation. It was another important step in my coming out. My in-laws have come to know and accept Evelien already, but in my own family I am not that far yet. Not to mention the many relatives and friends of the deceased that showed up. It was awfully crowded, I [...]
Today I met a former colleague, I hadn’t seen in four years. He didn’t recognize me. I politely introduced myself as Evelien and said, that we had met before. When I mentioned my old name, he immediately remembered me. Of course I was curious how he would react to me, but I’ve always known him [...]
What a day! Today I had the yearly talk with my boss about my performance. And he’s not very satisfied, I won’t get a raise On the bright side: He doesn’t seem to have any problem with my expression of my gender identity on the job. That subject wasn’t even mentioned! My female appearance is [...]
It is time to publish! I was only able to do some minor maintenance to the site. I should really update the contents in many places, but there is no time for that. It is a good thing that everything works now. Now I can safely put the diary on-line.
I intend to put an elaborate story about transsexuality on my site, but it will take a while before that is ready. In the meantime, I would like to present a link to the story of a woman I admire very much: Lynn Conway.
It is driving me crazy! To publish my site from a Unix system (and with a blog), I need to update each and every page I ever made. Boring! I want to write a nice diary, with Real Life Test experiences, but all I do is edit pages I wrote years ago to conform to [...]

This is of course the moment to surf to Gendertalk and listen to their wonderful, weekly GLBT program! (In Holland it starts at 12:30 AM. That is 6:30 PM EST…) And you don’t even have to listen live; they also have an archive…
Here we go! My very own Weblog. I wonder, why they call it a ‘Blog’?
