    I went to physical therapy for the first time since injuring my leg in a car accident back in December and went there with pink fingernails and carrying my pink purse. Normally when I wear stuff like that it's just go to passing places. But this was the first time I did this to an appointment, and to a place where I will have dedicated contact with specific people on a semi-regular basis. This was what I wanted for a first impression.

    I started hrt 3 weeks ago (I was on T blockers for a month and a half)...
    But OH MY GOD it's been a week since I started to feel the "boob pain" and I don't know how to describe it, but I'm just so but so so so happy, and euphoric about it.

    The only problem is when my shirt rubs my nipples cause they are so sensible right now.

    Came out recently to another friend as trans. They were great, didn’t question/doubt at all, just accepted what I was saying. If only it could be this simple every time!

    Welp, I accidentally outed myself to a new friend...
    On the bright side, she's totally fine with it and it has basically changed nothing, so victory!

    I used the men’s washroom for the first time in the new campus! Granted no one was in there, though about 10 music students came down the stairs as I exited.

    So I just figured out my insurance will cover 100% of top surgery. My therapist is working on a referral letter so I can set up a consultation with the surgeon. That made me really fucking happy.

    20180208_180641[1].jpg 20180208_180834[1].jpg I spent the entire evening last night wearing my new wig, to get used to it for long periods. its a lot of hair to be honest. but it does look good. I think I'll try the older one tonight as it's a bit shorter. all steps on coming out as me, full time in 80 Days....

    Every time I think I don't pass well on a certain day, a stranger always initiates a conversation with me and use male pronouns.
    Today, was in the elevator going to class, which made my day.

    Still passed as male, even though I was wearing eyeliner today. I wasn't sure if I was really going to wear it, I thought I'd throw it out after I stopped presenting as female but I'm just too emo to give it up as I transition XD

    It was a group of kids though and I think that when it comes to passing, adults are way harder to convince? Oh well, if they thought I was a girl, then I'd really be worried about my ability to pass.

    I had to wear a dress when I went out to a restaurant with my mom recently. It was awkward af wearing a dress for the first time in forever but I actually still passed as male lol. A lady was talking to my mom and it literally went like this:

    She said, "Nice to meet you. Your name is?"
    And my mom said her name.
    Then the lady said, "And your son's name?" Indicating towards me.
    The happy moment sort of ended there when my mom said, "My daughter."
    But it was pretty funny because the lady then was like, "Oh...cool haircut." XD
