May. 20th, 2010


I have come 'home' to Southwestern Connecticut. It's not really where I feel like my home is, but it's where my parents house is and where I come back to during breaks from school.

I'm feeling alone.  

The main issue is that I don't know anyone GLBTQ in the area.

I'm not sure what to do about it, either.  I've looked online and haven't found anything particularly promising.

(no subject)

So 49ish weeks after my first shot of T (Dec 31, 2008) and around 47ish weeks after my legal name change to Avichai (Jan 13, 2009) I have decided to post again to give an update.

I'm alive, well, completely pass and am stealth at my new college which I just transfered to this semester (which is almost over). That's not to say that I'm not part of the queer/straight alliance on campus and fighting for my campus to put 'gender identity and expression' into the college non-discrimination policy (because I am), but not everyone needs to know my personal buisness.

Being FTM is not what makes me who I am. Being FTM is a part of me, and I'm glad I'm going through this process- it's a great learning and growing opportunity. If I meet someone who who needs guidance in their transition and I think it might help them for me to let them know they're not alone, then I may decide to tell them a little extra about me. For now, its not important to be out if I can be an advocate without risking my sanity (I'm happier than I have ever remembered and feel more like who and what I think I should feel like) and safety (across the hall from me there's a guy who's homophobic, racist, etc. I don't need him giving me a hard time).

I hope everyone is doing well and I want to wish everyone a happy holiday season.

I started Testosterone today.  The appointment was originally for 1:15pm.  It was supposed to start snowing this afternoon.  It started this morning.  Fortunately I decided last night to get up at 9 to call the doctor to see if anyone canceled so that I could come in early.  Fortunately someone canceled for an appointment at 11am.  So my father gave me a ride to the doctor in his Forester with AWD (much safer than going in my volvo with front wheel drive).  And I got T injected around 11:45 am.  It was awesome.  I have another appointment on January 8th to get the next shot and I have to get bloodwork done the day before. 

My parents leave for San Diego on the 7th of January.  I will have the house to myself for 5 days.  It should be interesting.  I just hope it doesn't snow anmore unti l get back to school.  Speaking of college, I can't decide whether to ask my father if I can bring my car back up to school.  I don't want to have to move it every time it snows, which I would have to do if I brought it back up to school with me.  But then I would be able to get around when need be.

I haven't really posted in a while. 

I think I may go nuts if the presidential election doesn't go Democrat this year. 

I have waited eight years for a good president and I want one now! 

Hopefully Congress will go Dems too. 

That'd be nice. 

It's probably too much to ask- I can dream can't I?

So I think I want my name to start with 'Avi' 
I still want it to be in Hebrew
My current ideas:

brand new

So I'm not sure if I'm doing this right... I've never kept a journal, and definitely not an LJ.  I'm feeling a little odd about it but excited too.  Hopefully I'll be able to find some communities to by part of and we'll see how it goes. 

I'm 'supposed' to be doing HW but it's not due until tomorrow so I have time and it's not a lot... I just got sidetracked... you got to love ADHD. 

Well, I'm off to join some communities... I think...
