My Descriptives of Choice
Odd.  That’s a given.  Feel free to add “duck” on the end of that if it makes you feel better.
Big Thinker of Small Thoughts.  And that, dear reader, is the whole point of this blog.
Writer of long-winded ramblings.  But you already knew that one.
Failure in many pathetic attempts at Proper Humour.
Confusingly gendered.  Judge all you want, but it won’t change a thing.  Trans*gendered, in fact.  I am very proud to announce that my gender is like nothing you’ve ever seen before.  Or anything you’ll ever see again.  But that’s a whole other blog for a whole other universe.  And no, I’m not telling.  Actually, as it turns out, I am.
Currently nameless.  Working on it.  No longer nameless, and very proud of it.
Asexual.  In case you’re worried that my complex gender identity somehow makes it more likely that you’ll get jumped on.  But if you’re thinking that in the first place, you probably don’t know me at all.  Or, you’re the most unobservant person alive.
Pronoun enthusiast.  “He” or “they” for me, please.  I’m still working on “it”.  And don’t be afraid to tell me your preference.  I’ll happily shoot anyone for you if they get them wrong (on purpose).
Opinionated.  You might have guessed.
Awkward, avoidant people phobe.  And I like it that way.  Most of the time.
Recovering lunatic.
Budding scientist.  Chemist, if you must know.
Budding activist.
Obsessive proofreader.  Apparently, I just can’t help correcting things.  And I hope to be paid for it some day.
Proud perfectionist.  See above.

Basically, my plan for this blog is simple: to relieve my long-suffering skull of some built-up pressure once in a while.  Pressure caused, of course, by my irritating ability to overanalyse and overthink just about everything.  I hope the pressure on you to understand it isn’t too much to bear.

    Oh! Nice description…
    Well I “like” people who think a lot, whether if its all about certain small matters. Because I “hate” myself for being like that.
    Looking forward to reading more of you; may be I ‘ll stop loathing my “never shutting-down” brain.

  2. I have known the attraction of asexuality. What would it be called if you just don’t want to have sexual realtions with another *person*. The urges are there, but not concerning other people. Huh. Not sure there’s a name for that.

    Personally, I am a lunatic and enjoy it. Recovering from it would make me a very dull person. 😉 I do want to be a little bit more level.

    • J.C. Prime says:

      Hmm, not sure if I’ve heard a term for it either… but I’m not far off what you’ve described, so if you ever come across one, let me know!

      Lunacy can indeed be fun sometimes… I only want to recover from the parts that stop me doing things that I otherwise might enjoy. The rest I’d gladly keep though 😀

      Thanks for stopping by, and I hope the levelling goes well!

    Greetings! I’ve other folks with complex gender identities and, you’re right, no two are the same.

    And, I remember the feeling of choosing a claiming a name for oneself. For me, that happened in January 2011.

    Thanks for the follow, and I’m looking forward to following you.

    • J.C. Prime says:

      Hello! Names were the bane of my life… so well done for getting there (in Jan ’11, I was still a gender newbie)! It was the main delay for me, making sure that I wasn’t going to change my mind later; names are such a personal thing…

      Thanks for stopping by!

    I come back and read your “about” page from time to time, just because I think it has a lovely cadence. I just read it, again, and I still like it.

    Very nice description of yourself. You definitely make it known who you really are. I think a lot of people have a hard time with that simply because they don’t know who they are. Nice to meet you. I think it is going to take me forever and a day to back read your posts.

    • J.C. Prime says:

      Thank you and likewise! Very true; identity’s a hard one to pin down. Good luck with the back-reading… and rest assured that I’ll be having fun doing the same!

    Hey JC not sure how I didn’t notice your blog till now but I’m looking forward to a good time amidst your thoughts.
    Maybe it’s coz I primarily look for the tag “bipolar”
    Are you gonna share if you’ve been diagnosed?
    As for your asexuality, this is massively interesting for me? Are you sexually functional and your asexuality is a choice?

    • J.C. Prime says:

      Hello there, and thanks for stopping by!

      I’m not bipolar, but I’ve been diagnosed with depression, social anxiety and gender dysphoria; I don’t mind sharing – it’s what blogging’s all about! 😉

      I am indeed sexually functional, in the sense that (as far as I know) everything works as it should, but I have little to no interest in sex or relationships. That may change – watch this space – but so far, no cigar…


      • Aimer Shama says:

        I kind envy you coz I feel like I’m the complete opposite (hypersexual) and that makes me dependant. I just have this massive craving to make babies I’m serious! I’m not saying I even want variety. I just want family and lots of sex with the woman I love and lots of kids! But sometimes I think if I weren’t driven by my desires I would be free… you know?

      • J.C. Prime says:

        I know what you mean, even if not from experience! Freedom’s such a subjective term, but I’m completely with you on this; I’m far more dependent than I’d like to be, albeit for different reasons, and I think that if I didn’t let my body control me as much as I do, then I’d be on my way to freedom too. Hugs.

    Hello there! I noticed you’d just started to follow my blog, so I popped over to check out yours and ended up spending nearly an hour snooping around and reading your posts, which were surprisingly honest and funny. You have a great way with words. This makes me happy.
    And for what it’s worth (a stranger’s opinion probably isn’t worth all that much), I consider everyone and myself human first, and everything else (gender, nationality, mental-status) comes way after that. I don’t know if this is too simple-minded of me, but for the meantime it seems to be working well.
    Looking forward to reading more of your stuff. 😀

    • J.C. Prime says:

      Hello and welcome! Thank you – that’s quite a compliment, and I return it several-fold (except you have a way with words and art)!

      A stranger’s opinion is worth as much as a friend’s, as far as I’m concerned 🙂
      I don’t think it’s simple-minded at all; in fact, I believe that if more people had the same attitude, then life would be better, easier, and generally more enjoyable. I’m glad it’s working well, and I hope more people start thinking like you! 🙂

      (Thinking about it, race is another one; I’ve often wondered how much better the world’s history could have been if people hadn’t seen race differences as important variables. Most differences are seen as an opportunity to create completely arbitrary hierarchies, even now, and I don’t understand why there has to be a “better” party – it’s just my observation, which may be completely off, but I guess it’s just part of human nature…)

      Thank you again, for your kindness and sharing your thoughts, and I’m likewise looking forward to reading more from you 🙂


      • katemcmillanblogs says:

        Ahhh, difference… It’s one of my pet worries. Actually the way people often perceive it is my worry. I think I’ll write/draw another post about it soon. Or soonish. Maybe. Watch this space. Rather, watch the other space at katemcmillanblogs, and I’ll watch this space, because this is your space and the other space is my space and watching our own spaces as opposed to the other person’s space might get a little strange and somewhat dull. I’m rambling because I don’t want to start all my work. Sorry. 🙂
        Anyway, I best not procrastinate any longer. I hope all is well. Carry on. 😀

      • J.C. Prime says:

        Ditto – and I look forward to the post-slash-draw! I LOVE the Space-Related Ramble; work-avoiding-rambles can be the best creative-juice-flowing motivators sometimes, and I love reading them always 🙂


  9. Hello, JC! I saw that you liked one of the posts on my blog, and am currently reading through your posts. I look forward to reading more from you!

  10. doubleinvert says:

    Hello! I’ve nominated your blog for the Liebster Award. Pleas see the following post for details:

    • JC says:

      Hello and thank you!

      Although it’s been nearly six months since I last updated the blogosphere, this was a pleasant surprise and a much-appreciated motivator to get me blogging again!
