Moving out, moving in with my dad, moving on with my life.
This is a mix of a story and questions about how to do things. Without further ado, I will start.
(I live in Columbus, Mississippi, by the way)
To start it off, I'm 19. I'm a guy. I happen to be a transgender, that plans to become a woman. Don't really worry about the details, just keep that in mind. I hate where I live. I live with my mom in a really crappy house that's, well, disgusting on the inside to say the least. I have a lot of bad memories here. I'm usually depressed if I'm not engorging myself into something on the computer. I've tried desperately to get a job so I could move out of this house and into an apartment to have some individuality and move on with my life. But... that's not going to fly.
I've got about two to three weeks left here before I move. I plan to move in with my dad, my little brother, and my oldest brother in West Point, Mississippi. Which is an hour away form here. I'll have some sort of job within a week once I move there, making minimum wage. Which is somewhere around $7 here.
Here's how I see it. I'll live there for quite a few months. I'll buy the occasional leisure thing or two to keep me happy. I'll have to pay for gas for my dad to drive me to my job. Pay for my own food, most likely. Save up for a semi-decent vehicle. I plan to use this vehicle to drive to Pasadena, Maryland in the distant future to move into an apartment with my boyfriend. I'll save up enough money to survive a month or two there by myself, maybe a little help from my boyfriend's parents if need be. Once I have my job there, whenever that happens, I'll work for a while. Pay some of the bills, while saving up for the hormones I'll need for my transformation process, along with the therapy.
That's how I see everything. Now, I've never, ever done anything like this before. I've considered it, thought about it, pondered it, that kinda stuff. But I never saw myself actually doing all of this. But, it's a sure thing now. It -will- happen.
So my question to you guys is this: what can I do to prepare? What can I do to make the moving, the working the job, the managing expenses, all of that easier on me? Any tips involving ANYTHING (other than anything to do with my transgender stuff, as that's kind of my business and I'll find out what to do about that on my own) in this entire post will be greatly appreciated. Please, I'd really love some insight and help into any of this.
