Well…it is going to be official on October 1st, 2014…my new name, Charissa Grace White will be my legal name. It astounds me and truthfully I feel weird. Not bad at all…but I am not quite sure what to feel, getting ready to officially have a name that means me, and not someone else I felt chained to.
I will still be going by my old name at work for awhile…in talking with HR they are fine with that, and the important thing is that I get it done.
And…it looks like the methods at work to police me will be along the lines mentioned in the “Tolerance or Acceptance” article that I reposted. Some things happened today that discouraged me, greatly.
Ima declare it right now…like Daniel, in the lion’s den…I want to do and say and be the right thing. So I am going to keep on:
a sad, giddy/weird feeling Charissa Grace who finds her name sustaining her in Lady Grace’s courts.
Later, after I started this:
PS: omg…thank you ddh!!
❤ always ❤
