how many copies of your deed poll did u request?
You get the original copy and then i also got two additional copies, which i really didn’t even need.
When you change your name with people there might be times where you need to post it to someone, and they always want the original, but if you pay for the ‘legal copies’ they’ll be accepted by everyone as an original. I’d say just order one copy so that you can change your name everywhere quicker, but I know that the website will only let you order a minimum of two copies, so yeah. If you can’t afford it just know that you don’t even need the legal copies anyways.
Did you change your name by deed poll? Can you tell me what website you used please. I don't know which one is official or not.
I done mines online with http://www.deedpoll.org.uk
I can’t remember exactly how much I paid but it says it all on the website.
They were quick with delivering the documents out and stuff, and when I showed it to people to change things over (bank, passport etc) I never had any problems.
I go back home to Scotland in less than a week now and I wanna cry.
Kelsea says she’ll do a video with me for tha memoriez but I dunno what to do cos I don’t want us looking all depressed n shit lol.
Tell us fun things to do/talk about..
I've bought a bottle to try but I'm not sure if I should. I haven't been on t as long as you, maybe 8 months total but dragged out over 18 months because I'd ran out and had to wait a good while. My levels were never high enough when on it properly but I've thinned on the top and I've receded in the front. Not keen on asking my doctor as I really don't want them to advise me against it and I don't want to use it incase it messes with the regular safety blood tests. Catch 22. What would you do?
I would be honest with your doctor and say that you’re looking to start taking minoxidil and ask for them to prescribe it, and if they aren’t comfortable then let them know that you’re going to buy it yourself anyways (the rogaine stuff). At least then they know you’re taking it and can keep it in mind when it comes to blood tests etc. I’m sure that if you were taking it at the normal dosage it wouldn’t affect you in a negative way, but it is best that your doctor knows anyways, whether or not they’re the one actually prescribing it. If you have the chat with your doctor I’m sure they’ll talk to you about potential side effects and stuff so that you know exactly how it may affect your body. You could decide what to do then?
Have you considered minoxidil for your hair?
I have.. I’ve been planning on using it once I get back home, so fingers crossed it helps!
is it true that there's this statue in glasgow or edinburgh of some lord n there's a traffic cone on his head and sometimes people try to take it off but it always comes back like ppl like their statue with the cone on it? and that they painted the cone golden for the olympics??
Yes that is very true. (Its on Queen St in Glasgow just outside the GoMA)
What binder(s) do you use? Do you have a favourite you can recommend? Cheers Fionn
Ive used the full length underworks binder (997?), the t-kingdom binder with the velcro on the side, and I now only wear the underworks tri top. I’d recommend the tri top. The only issue I have with it is sometimes you can see a line on your top across your torso where the binder ends, but sometimes ill fold my binder up to the top of my ribs (a couple of inches) and it gets rid of the line. I have weird ribs that stick out a lot and then at the very top in the middle of my chest its a bit sunken so I’ve always assumed thats why I have this problem.
What are your thoughts (or vote) on Scottish Independence?
At first I was very hesitant about it all but as educated myself more I became much more confident in voting yes.
I used to be very put off by british politics (a no voter), but with the prospect of independence I’ve found a new sense of patriotism and all of a sudden realise the importance of informed voting.
I just really want our country to actually have control over how things are ran, and i think if that were to happen, less kids would have the attitude that I had where they don’t want to become in any way involved with politics.
Fionn where's your woolen-looking jacket from in one of your black and white photos of yourself from? It's awesome!
