Day 30: Next

#30DaysOfSelfCare So many of you have been asking me what I plan on doing after day 30. Will I continue writing? Is the blog over? What if we have questions? I started this series as a way to talk through some of my thoughts and to share trans* lived experiences and narratives. When I wrote
