    Whether or not they know, care or whatever, the Lizard Lounge in Long Island is epic LGBT friendly bar that made me feel like a god damn queen. Wish I lived here.

    I kept trying to overpay fpr making me feel like a celebrity but the manager treated me not like a man or woman, but a person.

    I feel wonderful.

    Two days ago a waitress called me maam when we were ordering food. Im thankfull my parents didnt hear (or at least I dont think they did), but I was so happy! Its the first time a stranger has reffered to me by the correct pronouns without me needing to tell them im female. I was sitting down so she mostly just saw my hair and probably couldnt see my chest all that well, but at least for a second she thought I was female :slight_smile: later on she called me "hun". Dunno if hun is more feminine or not. Idc. I was happy.

    Hair that swings both ways (male & female, for I have to masquerade as female when med school interviews take place) but not at the same time! Yes!

    Come out to my oldest friend last night! She asked a few questions (how long have you known? etc) and I could tell she was thinking about it a lot of the night but she was cool with it.

    When I was dropping off orders at the post office about an hour ago, Nik told my mom about the real reason we were going to Philadelphia in a few days and she took the news surprisingly well; and was shocked by how cheap everything would be for us (maybe $75 for the first visit and maybe $150-ish for the second; that includes the price of T).

    So fucking pumped.

    Tucked all day today. Havnt tucked in months because It made me uncomfortable and everything "slipped out." but today got some super tight panty hose and made a tight gaff, so Ive been tucking all day today! I forgot how good feeling flat is.

    From a woman I briefly met to my actual partner "that guy you were with the other day, that was really a guy, wasn't he?" Then later my partner (who doesn't want to be seen as gay in public) explained what I am (technically). And then she says "oh", goes very quiet, and then "Well, she was so masculine looking and acting... I thought at first he was a very attractive young boy".
    I felt like (!) ... Counting the days to go on T.
