Quirky, weird, strange and silly. Those are some of the words you might think when first meeting me, and I’d say you’re correct.
My name is Jewel Saphira Bloom, a student at a nice little place called Lane Community College, hoping to graduate with a major in Multimedia sometime in the future. I chose Multimedia due to my love for videography and photography as well as many more things you may just learn during the time this blog progresses.
I’m a lover of many nerdy things, such as Doctor Who, a famous British Sci-Fi show, and Glee, a well known American comedy series. I also have a love for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Rick Riordan books, Lorien Legacies, Fairy Tail and much much more.
The biggest things about me, however, are not the things I like or what I do, but rather what I am and how it shapes me. I am autistic, transgender, asexual and panromantic, all of which I have learned to accept and love. Before I had accepted being a trans-woman, my name had been Johann (Joey) Brandenfels-Mestaz, but through officially becoming myself, I have the name I said in the beginning, and I couldn’t be happier.
When I first heard about having to do a blog, I was very worried about it. “It requires typing?! Well I’m not gonna do good,” I had thought right away, but now, as I’m writing this, I look forward to starting this journey and sharing what I can.
Until next time,
