I’m a day late, but oh well. This past week was my first week at Atlanta Legal Aid Society. I’ve had a really good experience so far. My unit, the Health Law Unit, has been really affirming and are eager to learn more about trans issues. I’ve already had some client contact, and I’m looking forward to going to Magistrate Court on Thursday. I’m also getting to work on outreach to the trans community. We’re currently doing a transgender needs assessment so I’ll be reaching out to various trans leaders and organizations within the Atlanta metro.
My voice is still dropping. I’m going to try and get together a video of my voice changes. I’ve been doing about 10-15 second voice videos every Friday. If I can figure out how to put them together into one video, I’ll post it here. I’ve also noticed more body and facial hair. Someone asked me if I’ve gotten any taller. I’m not exactly sure, but I have noticed that I could probably scoot the driver’s seat back in my car. I’m going to the doctor to get some routine blood work done this Friday so I guess I’ll get to see then if I’ve grown any. It’s pretty unlikely since I’m past the puberty age, but it could still happen. I weighed myself for the first time in a while, and I was down about 7 lbs., but then I ate like a pig this past weekend while I was home visiting my mom and sister. Whoops…
All the best,
