    Ooo, cool!

    I slogged my way through Ray Kurzweil's The Singularity Is Near a year or so ago. Not a bad read, just dense material that takes a lot of thought.

    That adults are just grown up kids. They don't magically figure everything out once they reach a certain age.

    My gender. Oh, also some bands (Fabulous Disaster, Helium, Joseph, Partyline) and some shows (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Emily Owens MD, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and Wrecked).

    •Various art techniques, most recently basic anime face drawing.

    •Some of the most significant of my health issues, which have overshadowed my life for over a decade now, MAY in fact be treatable to the point of significant improvement although likely not full recovery. However it is still very early days and frustratingly I will not know for some time. I am cautiously optimistic however.

    •The emoji poop has seemingly now become the biggest celebrity on earth.

    I learned this too! Whilst googling the Dyatlov Pass incident.

    Every summer reminds me how much I don't like sweating. I've been working on getting my T set up and I'll be starting it after I have some surgery(gotta get that gallbladder out). So I think I'm either going to start it later this month or next month. I'm going to ask my doctor about that when I see her next.

    WHat I learned is that coming out in a serious intense relationship and trying to stay in one is nearly impossible and that I am capable of causing so much hurt.

    I also found out I look really good when going 100% female. So yeah, mixed feelings this year.

    I learned what it is like to lose a loved one you are very close to.

    I discovered a lot about my gender over the summer.
