The local alumni magazine did an interview with me, where I had pictures taken. I've always been camera shy, but overtime I've been working towards improving how I look on camera (even actually *gasp* smiling), and I think I did okay with this shoot.

Although damn, holding my breathe for so long can be a pain :-I

(also, one of my cats interrupted the interview, so they took pics of him as well. My cat's gonna be a star!)

I decided to make some effort into looking somewhat nice with my fashion. I have zero fashion sense (something people who met me can attest), but I got good tips from friends.

...so per their recommendations, I bought khaki jeans. Hey, I have to start somewhere :-I

So, I've been on medical leave from my job at Walmart for a couple months now, and I've been dreading going back. That place just sucks your soul, and honestly it's just a bit too much for me. As an alternative to that, I've started poking around on job listing websites and seeing what's available in my area. I even sent in a few applications here and there, not expecting to get any response. However, I did get a response from one! I have an interview tomorrow with a local organization that provides services and programs for people with disabilities as a mentor, meaning I'll be working directly with the clients and helping them. Outside of computer programming work, this is the best job I can think of for my experience. I've really enjoyed working with children and people with disabilities in the past, and this job won't have me working nights or working completely alone, either. Fingers crossed that the interview goes well!

IT. WAS. FANTASTIC.

Morales was the Hamilton in our production, and he was supposed to be in the Chicago cast as well, so we might have seen the same person!

The way it just flowed without distinct scene transitions, the way the actors were choreographed to move from role to role, I could just kiss all of them. I normally don't want to give a standing ovation, but this time, I had no problem with it.

I still think that "Waitress" was better, but this was AMAZING.

The advantage to buying season tickets to a theatre means that you get into Hamilton for under box office prices. :dwi:

SDCC approved my Professional Creators application! :party:

This doesn't guarantee I can get the "Pro" badge, but it does allow me some privilege if I decide to go to SDCC or Wondercon in the future

I'm going to spend this weekend with two people who are very dear to me, and celebrate my birthday. I can't wait. :allears:

I've gained a lot of great real-life friends this past year. I feel like I'm finally able to bond with people I meet in the flesh versus online, and it's going really well. I'm finally starting to feel like myself since I started HRT, and that definitely shows in how people perceive and treat me. More confidence, less awkwardness. It's so great to recognize this in the feedback I get from other people.

More and more people don't just accept me for who I am, but even like me for it. It feels so alien. I love it. :D
