Hi, I’m Drake, the summer intern

Hello, Drake here.

I’m the summer intern here at Dallas Voice, here to make copies, get coffee, take out the trash, so on and so forth. Before I get to the very important duties of The Lone Intern, I thought I’d write a little about myself.

I’m the baby in the office at a mere nineteen years young. As far as the GLBT community goes, I fall into the T category, as in transgender. I’m a female-to-male transgentleman extraordinaire, going through puberty for the second time. I’ve been on testosterone for almost three months now. Perfect time to start life as an intern, right?

Outside my intern duties I take part in the fascinating world of reading and drinking coffee. I’m starting at Northlake Community College soon where I will study English and journalism, minoring in underwater basket-weaving. I dabble in many artsy-fartsy activities such as cosplay, sewing, knitting, making junk out of polymer clay, and occasionally I break out the power tools to work on some metal or woodcraft. As a non-paid side career I’m a performer from Isis Studios as a belly dancer.

I’m a lover of fantasy and science fiction and an avid fan of Harry Potter (I’ve got a tattoo of the Slytherin crest — I think that means I broke the needle on the Geek-O-Meter). I’ve got more tattoos and piercings than I probably should at my age, but I doubt I’ll quit any time soon. I am a proud fan fiction writer and editor, which is where most of my writing experience comes from. I post an inappropriate number of videos on YouTube of my cosplay shenanigans, rants about whatever I feel like complaining about, and recently I’ve started a vlog on my transitioning process from female to male. Aside from all that, I pretty much just hang out in my room and chill on Facebook.

Well, that’s all from me for now. I’m sure there will be more posts in the near future of my ramblings and opinions. For now, I say good ‘morrow.
