Story Of My Life

Story of my life.

In 7th grade I was left off the nomination list for Homecoming Court because the school's office thought I was a male.


Thank you 'unnamed charitable organization' for these free return address stickers. Thank you for reminding me how it felt to be a 13 year old, awkward girl who was easily confused as a boy.

Thank you Mom and Dad for giving me the most gender neutral name ever.

Now please excuse me. I need to have a good cry.


  1. That happens to Courtney some, too. We had to sign an attendance sheet on the school bus, and there was a boy named Courtney, so she would get her name scratched off and moved to the boy's column. For a first grader, that was the end of the world.

  2. Blame your DAD!

    love, mom

  3. The first Birth Certificate mailed to me after your birth listed you as a male ---oops, I had it quickly fixed.
