Sometimes a dream takes you somewhere you wouldn't have expected. This is a story of a girl who was deeply moved by her saddest dream ever.
What do people mean when they say they "identify" with a character? I argue that most of a time, it's empathy, and identification comes with customisation, but I may be wrong, hey!
Sometimes, you want to talk about a film that hasn't been released yet, because you put a lot of faith in it. So in this post, I will be talking about Girl, by Lukas Dhont, and why it is important to me that it doesn't disappoint.
It all started with my camera. Or should I say "re-started". Because in the past few years, I had progressively removed from my life every thing that came in consumables to replace them by de-materialised content. But I realised that by making it more convenient and easy, it caused all these activities to take way too much of my life (some more than others). When I was taking my DSLR around, I was taking so many photos it was cutting the pleasure out of visiting the places I was travelling to.
My super smartphone hasn't dealt well with a full day of walking in the minus 11 weather of Montréal, QC, decided that it had enough of it and didn't even wait until its battery was totally down to give me the finger.

I have had a discussion with a new friend I made in Montréal, who told me she went to a speed dating event and it was a lot of fun. So she suggested I should go to one and I rapidly replied I couldn't attend such an event, not because I don't like the concept (I did say it was a weird concept, but hey, don't you agree?), but because I'm just unable to do so.
Today, I want to talk about this graphic novel that hits so close to home, since it's about gender transition. It's called First Year Out, A Transition Story, and as the title states, it narrates about a year in the life of Lily, a trans woman, right after she comes out.
