Just think of me as having regenerated.

Hello everyone, to anyone for whom activity on my part is interesting.  If you don't give a fig, that's fine too.  I've been gone for a long time.  Long enough to come back as someone else; long enough to have been a couple of other people in the interim.  Suffice it to say that I'm glad you're seeing me now; I'm doing well, and I'm the best me I've ever been.

I don't know if I'm properly coming back to LiveJournal; I'm not sure if it's an outlet that I still need.  I do know, however, that I knew some amazing people here; most casually, some personally.  If anyone would like to stay in touch with me in a more mainstream medium, I'm Audrey Sterling -- the one from Amarillo -- on Facebook.  You can also PM me -- there or here -- for more direct means of contact like Skype or phone if appropriate.  Feel free to say hi, but I recommend that you remind me who you are and how we know each other; my memory's never been great, and I promise it's nothing personal if it takes me a minute.

As I said, I'm doing well, and as is obvious, I've changed a lot.  I've been on hormone therapy for four months, living full time as the woman I am for... huh.  Fancy that.  One year exactly to the day.  Life's funny, isn't it?  I'm looking forward to a tremendous trip to Dallas, then to Atlanta, then to Fort Lauderdale to visit a convention, my SO(ulmate), and a beloved friend in that order.  I am extraordinarily happy and have nothing but high hopes for the future.

I hope that life is treating all of you at least as well as it is me, and I look forward to reconnecting with those who wish it.

All the best,
-Aud

You look amazing, and more importantly, look like you're doing amazing. :)

I am unsurprisingly Kitty from PI way-back-when; I have by sheer chance wound up on Warcraft on your old server, which has probably had a hundred percent turnover in the last eight years. I am not on Facebook due to privacy concerns, and not on Skype due to friendly people in Russia making requests for my computer to do things it really shouldn't, so I suspect we'll be in little touch, but -- oh, wow, is it good to see that you're doing well. :)

KITTY! :D
So cool to see you! Soz about your being not too media-available, but at least PM me your battletag or whatevs; I've gotten back into WoW a bit, so I might actually see you around on the old server! I hope your life's been as awesome as mine has been (lately, anyway). :)

Re: Hello again!
Aw, thank you! I'm so glad to see that you're still around! Love your blog, by the way. ...I just realized that I totally ripped you off without meaning to when I named a character on City of Heroes Kallisti Jones. Sorry about that. ^_^;

Hey! You (Audrey) already know it's Tracey/Trevor from PI (Kurasu from everywhere else on earth), but others might not. So.... welcome back, and hi peoples. :) I don't do the LJ thing much my own self, so catch up to me in PM so I can throw Skypes if anyone else is reading this.

It... has been a long time, and it's a treasure.

Thank you again, so much, for persevering in contacting me. Getting back in touch with you makes an already-amazing year even more so. :)

Let this be a lesson, people! Be careful who you let sign your high school yearbook; you never know *what* will rub off! ;)

We met just over a decade ago in the Asperger community. I was this overwhelmingly saccharine teen who e-mailed you paragraphs upon paragraphs at a time of semi-manic self-description; you were kind enough to not only tolerate this, but pen equally lengthy replies. I've calmed down significantly in the years since! Am now an openly queer/genderqueer, closeted autistic, high school math teacher at a fancy private boarding school, loving every moment of that job and sorting out the rest of my messy life. My partner of over 8 years identifies as Discordian, based on my passing on the Illuminatus Trilogy I'd bought per your recommendation all those years ago. .. funny how small actions can magnify like that. Anyhow, my very first internet-friend, I'm really glad to hear from you again, and especially to hear that you are doing so well.

Hey, hon! I'm sorry to say that I don't remember the specific contents of our exchanges -- that's probably for the best considering what an insufferable little twit I could be back then -- but I do remember really enjoying your company and liking you a heck of a lot!

I'm so glad to hear that your job is rewarding and awesome for you! Congratulations on being a great role model and resource to those kids; they sound like a lucky bunch. *laughs at your partner* Aw, that's cool! I guess if I hafta be responsible for someone catching religion off of me I could do a lot worse than Discordianism! Give your sweetie a 'hail Eris!' from me. ;)
