Hello. My alias on this blog is Ren’Ai, but those who associate with me call me Nina or Amai. Any and all are fine.
This blog is just as it states: a memoir sweetened with visual representation in the form of meganekko (girls with glasses) to reflect the feel of each entry. The untold story of a lost & confused college girl now turned strong-willed, struggling adult woman. Despite how my intelligence may be undermined by my copious use of foul language, I am a college graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Professional Writing/Digital Media.
And I love. A lot.
Here are a few other things you should know about me…
- Since I began this Meganekko Memoirs in Fall 2005, my domain has undergone many topical transformations and has been thematically redefined numerous times, but my critical writing style and, often times, no-nonsense, honest approach has remained fairly constant.
- This blog has, and always will be my domain for expression, opinions, rants, and the like. As of late, my writing focus falls on thoughtful, reflective content of gender, romance, loss, and the hardships that come with living life the best I can. If you disagree with me on some issue, please be candid and respectful…
- There was a time when I couldn’t give a shit whether anyone read or commented. Now that I’m older and have a more defined purpose for writing here, I would sincerely like to have a dialogue with others who share my struggles or have intellectual insights.
- I like anime, manga (including ecchi/mature themes), and Japanese culture. I also understand and speak Japanese at approximately junior high level once I get warmed up. Feel free to bring up any of those topics with me.
- As of 2013, I have come out to a number of key family & trusted friends as transgender. In 2014, I went public as specifically, a woman who happens to be transgender. I have written a number of entries on my deliberate journey since 2012 – hints of my gender struggle permeate this blog as far back as its inception – but this one will be a good place for newcomers to start.
- I support equal rights and opportunity for the LGBTQ community, and live out and about as female daily. Feminine pronouns only please.
- I’m a human being just like you.
