Get Busy Living or Get Busy Dying*


I only think about being transgender when I am in boy mode. I seldom think about it in girl mode.

In boy mode, I feel a little uncomfortable; I am in a place that is wrong for me and I think about how comfortable I would be if I was in girl mode.

In girl mode, I am in a perfect place. I don't think about moving to another place and I can get busy living.

* “Get busy living or get busy dying” is one of my favorite movie lines; it comes from one of my favorite films, The Shawshank Redemption .


  1. Hugh Grant also had a good line at his defrocking in the movie Extreme Measures with Gene Hackman. IMO this movie is also a classic which sheds a smattering of light upon many issues, moral and otherwise.

  2. That is so sweet, so sad and so like me.

  3. Wow, that sounds like me to a "T!"
