"but you said you were leaving!!!"

 

I might as well get the big thing out of the way first, in the time since I left I have done a lot of thinking about myself. After many sleepless nights and emotional roller-coasters I've come to terms with the fact that I'm transgender. I'm really glad that I have a therapist helping me out, because if I didn't I might be dead right now, there were days where suicide felt like a pretty great option.

 

Thinking about me being a girl made me laugh a bit at first, but then I realized how much more comfortable I am when I'm treated like a girl. I've started changing my appearance a bit, haven't gotten too far with it because I'm still living at home and will for the next 2 or 3 years. I'm going to get a nice haircut soon and have been wearing a light amount of makeup. I'm not changing my name because it's perfectly fine for a girl, just changing the spelling from Jordan to Jordyn.

 

It may be a while yet before I can start HRT as I would need to leave home and have a good job to pay for it, but that's okay. I'll eventually get to where I want to be.

 

 

In other news, I was briefly on an independent music label, but I was kicked off because the label owner doesn't like "retarded liberal social justice warriors." TIL being transgender automatically makes me a SJW!

 

I am learning Japanese, I've been studying for a few months. I'm a bit stuck on grammar, but my vocabulary study is going well. Hopefully by this time next year I can have a intelligent discussion with a Japanese friend.

 

I can't think of anything else, the weather's been nasty and I guess I'm okay.

I hope you know of Tae Kim's guide for Japanese grammar. A textbook or some shizzle ain't gonna get anyone anywhere -.-. And after you've finished that guide, it's useful to consult a source for the more arbitrary aspects of grammar that are based on memorization (conjugations, etc.), for which the Amaterasu guide is helpful.

Who cares if you said you were leaving, everyone needs a lengthy break once in a while. I've retired more than once and here I am again lol, this place will never get rid of me. :P

As for the rest well, I don't know you well enough and your situation to opinate about it, but if that's how you feel and you're happy with it then it's all good. Hope it works out for you and the change makes you happy.

A late Merry Christmas btw and a Happy New Year for you. ^_^

The book I'm using is actually quite good and was recommended to me by my Japanese friend, A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar. I do know about Tae Kim though and he helped me learn hiragana and katakana.

I don't really expect people to understand what is really means to be transgender, a lot of people are just confused. It's nice to see someone say something like you did.
