    I've been called sir again *^*
    And I like how my neck - because I'm thin - gives me the illusion of an adam's apple sometimes, under the proper light. It's curious that my voice on the contrary is high.

    When you're on T you'll get that Adams apple! Just another thing to look forward to

    For me, my small victory is that I bought a classy af road bike yesterday. Already got 30 miles on 'em. I'm using it for commuting between my new countryside home and downtown (10 miles one way) -- also the training is therapeutic for me.

    well, last night I spoke at a panel on LGBTQ+ support for the international day against homophobia, biphobia, and Transphobia. I was soo nervous, but I did it, I used my childhood and self discovery as my basis and I made everyone cry, the audience, the panelists, the mods, and the library staff. I cried myself of course. but it was awesome.

    I was at the store picking out a birthday present for my little sister, and when I mentioned the gift to the clerk she said "you're such a good big brother." No one has ever said that to me before.

    Fucking voice comparisons! I have clips of my voice pre-T, and even a month ago, against today. The difference is crazy and it just gets me every time. I wish I had a way to share them with you guys.

    I've officially booked my trip to San Fran for my top surgery consultation. I still cannot believe this is actually happening...

    So my dad is apparently enjoying my coming out. My mom made spaghetti for dinner, and while I was filling my plate my dad said "Hurry up, boy! Heh heh, I can say that now." :laughing:

    a few months ago, my mom and i were on vacation and eating lunch at a restaurant. later that day, she asks me if i noticed that the server and some other people we had seen had been calling me he and sir. i'm not out to her, so i sort of brushed it off, but it felt great! i'm just bummed that i didn't notice it in the moment :+(

    I just sent an email to all the people who participate in a seminar with me next weekend, asking them to call me Noah while I'm there. I'm still a bit shaky and I can't really believe I did this. This is probably my first major step towards socially transitioning after thinking about it for nearly a year. Let's see how it goes ...

    so this happened about a week and a half ago. and i've been both processing this and waiting for the other shoe to drop. my son and i knew we had to tell my ex about me. so we called her and told her expecting an explosion. she said as long as im happy..... what?! thats why i have been processing it, it's so out of character for her. so im still waiting, for that shoe but i've done what i could and i hope she doesnt make a scene when/if she sees me in public. so im still calling telling her a victory.

    Huge victory. I finally worked up the courage to send my friends my coming out letter. It took me about 2 hours of just staring at my message, but I did it. My heart is racing.
