    I've heard the same thing. You look like your grandmother.

    Imagine looking like your forebearers... who would have thought.

    Well, nah, my voice dropped... She totally didn't recognize my voice for one second. I've got a while before I look anything like him (the man has a fairly impressive beard)

    Looks good in the last picture. Hard to see in the low light exposures though.

    Random name thought: I didn't think I'd want to find a new middle name (my grandma's name who passed away, don't really ID as fully "male", the list goes on to why I didn't want to find a middle name and I also kind of gave up looking). Anyway, I was watching HIMYM (not related), and I thought of 'Jonah'. Honestly, I didn't think it would be a name I'd be interested in, but it fits all my qualifications in choosing a middle name. I was saying 'Kade Jonah L___' in my head and I think it sounds good.

    I ran around 3km this afternoon. I was going for 5 but my ipod fitness app shut down twice for no reason so I gave up in the end, but I've never done anything like that willingly and I haven't exercised in ages. It felt horrible physically, but it was damn satisfying and a good way to destress after a shit day.

    I stood up for myself and corrected someone when they misgendered me :grin: it might not seem like much, but for me, it's huge ^.^

    Bumped into a bloke at the gym I haven't seen in a couple of months. He said how big I'd got! Bigger than him!

    I have blond stuble on the side of my jaw. And this isn't just peach fuzz. I shave my peach fuzz but it grows in soft. No. This is actual stub-ble . Like... facial hair. I've been rubbing it all day. :slight_smile:

    ...I had to edit this because for some reason s-t-u-b-b-l-e was censored.

    Came out to my 19 year old stepsister today, personally. She reacted very well though and actually said that is "awesome". She is the first person to actually seem happy about my transition though everyone else has been perfectly accepting. I think that is kind of what I was waiting for. Someone who thinks it is exciting and not just okay. I mean I am excited but it is nice to have someone excited FOR me. She even likes my name choice which most people have been okay to negative at first and later it has grown on them.

    This is hard to translate. I have a job and I was asked whether I was a trainee. In Germany, we have a male and a female version for that word. The man used the male version for me ^^
