Another week in Athens, Georgia has gone by. It’s been a pretty good one. I had lunch with one of the TDOV panelists on Monday. She’s a professor at the business school. It was really good to talk to her. I always enjoy talking to other trans people and find myself really missing that from time to time at school. I’m glad to have made the connection with her.
Well I think my voice is about the same as last week. It went back up a bit during the past week and then dropped back down. The days when it was up were a little stressful. Apparently it’s pretty normal for that to happen though.
I’ve been having sleeping problems again. I just can’t seem to get my brain to turn off at night. Finals are fast approaching, and I’m stressed about that doesn’t help. I hope that my sleeping patterns start leveling out soon.
I’m down a belt loop, but last time I checked I haven’t lost any weight. Once finals are over and I’m in Atlanta for the summer, I’m going to make time for exercise to try and take advantage of the T.
I’ve also noticed that I’ve got some darker leg hair creeping in. It started around my ankles and is coming up my calves.
And more NSFW increases…
I’ve got to make sure that I stay on top of any negative mood changes. This past Wednesday I was at a 1L meeting that should have been an email. Needless to say, I voiced my frustration to the people around me. Apparently I was noticeably mad, enough for a couple of my friends to mention it to me. I’ve always been pretty blunt, and I’m sure that law school has exacerbated that. I don’t know if Wednesday was because of the T directly, because I’m not sleeping and am pretty stressed about school, or some combination. Based on timelines of other trans guys, it’s probably not the T affecting my mood just yet. I need to be especially conscious of how I act since I’m soon to gain most, if not all, of the benefits of white male privilege. I don’t think that it’s necessarily going to be as easy as it sounds. I think that society tends to teach how not to be a monster, rather than how to be a good man. But more on that later. In the mean time, I’ve got a lot of exam preparation to do.
All the best,
