Number 1: Intro and recent photo
Intro- Hello, My Name is Jay(you can also call me Johnnie). I write poetry. I can be very expressive, but tend to limit myself by my own self censorship/criticism. I have overcome addiction, yet it still haunts me and continues to be a daily struggle. However, I use cannabis as a medicinal aid now, due to the damage caused by sever long term drug abuse. A necessary evil.
Number 2: Twenty facts about me
1-I am a female trapped in a Male body, which in the mental health world means I suffer from Gender Dysphoria, or also known as Gender Identity Disorder. However I disagree with this because I have been this way since birth. I feel that in the womb some how my original gender was altered. It is a product of biology not some mental illness or disorder. A result of something occurring in the womb, creating a spilt within the child.
2-I have been with the same partner for almost eight years now. We met on April first. Best April Fool’s Day I have had; I seriously doubt there will be an April Fools Day that can out do that one. The moment I laid eyes upon him and heard his voice I knew, he was the other half of me. I knew his soul.
3-I am almost forty.
4-I was born in Atlanta, Georgia in October
6-I attended three and half years of College, but failed to finish. Grateful for the experience.
7-I love the colors green and blue
8-I am a Bastard. Meaning I am the product of an affair my mother had while she was married to the man who raised me; and was declared on the birth certificate as my father. My real father, supposedly, died when I was around seven or eight. All I have to go on is the name my mom has given me, J.C. Lee. That is all.
9-I am a Trekkie.
10-I love Cats and Dogs.
11-I love Classical Music.
12-I like Cigars.
13-I write poetry.
14-I have written, an unpublished, book.

16-I enjoy the horror, comedy, musicals, drama, adventure, and science fiction genre’s of film.
17-I am an Agnostic.
18-I am a firm believer that what goes around comes around; I believe in Karma.
19-I have died twice.
20-I believe there is good in Humanity and strive to achieve and emulate it.
Number 3: My Favorite Quote
Would have to say my favorite quote is one that I came up with and live by; it is
“Today is the Best Day Ever (thought this link was hilariously perfect), for I was blessed to awaken this gifted morning.”
However I tend to shorten it to, ” It is the Best Day Ever.” I even came up with a little song for it.
“It is the Best Day Ever,
I will tell……you…this….Forever,
Number Four: What are you Afraid of?
Upon reflection I find the only thing that scares me is success. I have a fear of Success. Weird I know.
Number Five: Ten Songs I love Right Now
I gathered this list from billboard.com
1- “Can’t Hold Us ” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Featuring Ray Dalton, The Heist.
3-“Thrift Shop” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Featuring Wanz, The Heist.
4-“Heart Attack” by Demi Lovato, Heart Attack.
5-“People Like Us” by Kelly Clarkson, Greatest Hits Bonus DVD.
Unfortunately, I could not come up with ten songs. I do not have the pleasure of spending time enjoying music like I once did in my younger days. However, I do listen to the radio each moment I can.
