big life decision time.

i think i have to take the year off from school to establish residency in washington.
it's $4,000 for three quarters if you're a resident and $15,000 for non-residents.

it'll be realllly hard to find a job in olympia and i'll only have a month to do it cause i'm almost out of money.

and i only have maybe two days to decide if this is what i want to do. my only other option is to agree to about $26,000 in loans to go to school this year.



To establish domicile in the state of Washington, students must provide documentation showing they meet the following guidelines:

1. Students must prove conclusively that they have not come to Washington State primarily for educational purposes. Current guidelines require students who are enrolled for 7 credits or more a quarter must be employed at least 30 hours per week at a non-student job to overcome the presumption of educational purposes.

2. Live in the state for at least 12 consecutive months as legal residents. A legal resident is an individual who has relinquished all valid legal ties (e.g., driver's license, voter registration, etc.) with their former state of residence and established such ties in Washington in accordance with state and local legislation.

3. Establish legal ties:

*Employment (if taking more than 6 credits a quarter during the first year of being present in Washington State)

*Driver's license/state ID. Students must obtain a Washington State Driver's License within 30 days of arrival if they have a current out-of-state driver's license. Students who do not possess a driver's license from any state, must obtain a Washington State Identification Card.

*Vehicle registration. Students who own or drive a vehicle in Washington, must be registered in Washington.

*Voter registration. Students who have a current out-of-state voter's registration, must register to vote in Washington.

*Establish a bank account in Washington.

*Medical/automobile insurance independent of parents.

4. Be financially independent for the current and prior calendar years.

Examples of other factors that may help students establish proof of domicile include: disposition of property in the former state of residence, relocation of household members, participation in local community organizations, and generally becoming involved in activities that will help prove their intent to make Washington their official place of residence.

the dissapointment with my community post [May. 12th, 2008|08:41 am]
sea/ oliver
marci bowers was the keynote at the trans health fair this weekend and she was extremely disapointing. she made racist jokes about how she used to live in mpls and would see all the "indians walking to the liquor store" and about the photo of a metoidioplasty and how the penis might not be "large by african american standards," but that it was pretty impressive for that surgery. this was on top of admitting to having drank before speaking [at a SOBER EVENT], and rambling about herself and her accomplishments for most of her keynote. the workshop she gave was a presentation on her surgeries and she rambled through about half of it about herself again, spent about five-ten minutes on ftm surgeries and about 40 min on mtf surgeries. she was so offensive i walked out of both her presentations, one of them about to cry. i found one of the organizers and broke down for a minute with him and he was really great. a lot of folks talked to the coaltion about being upset and they were totally supportive of us.
but the thing that REALLY bothers me is that people were laughing at her jokes! they were eating up everything she was saying. also, when remy and i got the courage to go back in there and he respectfully asked her how she felt she addressed white privilege, racism, gender identities besides ftm and mtf, and access to surgery for people with lower incomes, she dismissed it, turned it into a joke. she responded to white privilege with condolutedly saying that it was a difficult issue to address, to racism with how she felt she was essentially all races and could relate to them- typical liberal racism, and excused her comment about african americans by saying she performed surgery on a lot of african americans and it was just a trend she'd noticed, to other gender identities with a reference to a south park episode where one of the characters wanted surgery to become a dolphin, and to access for lower income folks with some bs about dipping into her own pocket for one of her patients. a
she said a lot of really condescending shit about us being young and "keep at it, kid!" kind of fake-ass attitude. it was insulting and all of it was completely inappropriate for her to say at a trans health fair. she speaks all over the world and hasn't addressed her own shit AT ALL. she acted like she'd never been called out on it. she couldn't even graciously handle criticism without trying to discredit, humiliate, and brush off the people showing her the issue. and i know that it IS possible to take that kind of criticism without that kind of reaction, if you react that way it means you aren't thinking about it and don't want to admit to yourself that you're being racist/ fucked up. in addition, she insulted my friend right in front of me- i wanted to run up onstage and tell her all about herself very very disrespectfully. but we held back, let her be applauded again, and left. the whole thing was fucking draining.

other than all that, it was awesome! i tabled for the march and we got a lot of people interested!!! and the workshops were effing sweet. the trans health advocacy workshop even got me pumped about maybe trying to get involved in that kind of work!!!!! super inspiring. it was all really well organized and exciting, and i don't blame the coalition at all for the choice in speaker, they had no idea she was going to do that. i do think that they need to have a white privilege workshop as well as some sort of poc safe space event or workshop though, for starters. because that was not a safe environment. i mean, you can expect some degree of bullshit at this type of event, but not from the KEY NOTE- fucking christ!
