    Looking at my student ID. There's my name- Alec David [last name]. There's a picture of me wearing a tie. I have short hair.

    It's so surreal right now, like how is this even happening. I'm going to school, as myself. I have a new family here of people just like me. Just today I was walking around on campus and feeling kind of home sick, when there were these white papers taped all over the place. They read, simply, "YOU BELONG HERE (HATE DOESN'T)" and it hit me. I'm home. I can do this.

    My sister (Who doesn't know I'm Trans) was having a conversation with me alone. I always tell her everything, including like crushes and everything. But the conversation was about our family. We are kinda slobs and she has OCD, and she said I was the most bearable person in the house. Then she said I was her favorite sister. But then she kind of corrected herself (keep in mind I haven't told her I am trans) she said well sister brother sort of and then laughed, although she put it really weirdly, I feel like if I tell her in the near future, that she will be very accepting.

    I came out to my mom. And she took it as well as hoped. She told me that she never had to go through this, so she apologized in advance as she would continue to call me her little girl until I went to therapy and confirmed.
    The good therapy.

    I came out to my other sister. She's dealing with it okay, which is good.

    Kodo! Your news is amazing! That's so great you can be yourself in college.

    I made an appointment with the gender therapist. Some moral support in flesh would be useful.

    I went out early today with a different hair style from usual and felt so feminine.

    I'll have to do that eventually myself. Pretty sure I screwed up the measurement or math, but I got 40C yesterday. I can only WISH! (Though obviously I'd be pretty ecstatic if it was true).

    I was also able to get my consult with the oral surgeon moved up to next week, rather than a month from now! Am I excited to lose teeth, even if they're in back? No. Am I excited to have the pain gone, not have to take pain killers, and be able to eat more or less what I want again? Hell to the yes!

    Okay so my store manager is pretty much like my work mom, but I'm not out to her(or anyone there, yet). She stopped in tonight with her daughter, and I was hanging out at the Copy and Print Center for a few talking to her and Michelle(the girl who works there). She's going to leave and says "Bye girls." I didn't react (although I did perk up a bit) and her daughter jumps to my defense immediately. So she goes "He is a girl." In a pretty serious tone and they walk away.

    Not sure what happened there, but I'm still pretty happy about it, whatever it was.
