HRT: Week 21

Hi friends!

I’m a day late here but I can’t forget to keep my readers updated on what’s going on with my journey.

So, after a long while, there’s something new happening!

  • Restored hair growth. I actually didn’t believe it, but my father commented that he noticed I was regrowing hair in places where I had already gone bald. (Note: he doesn’t know about my transition yet, but will soon).  I’m actually considering seeing my doctor about possible ways to promote any further possible hair growth. The day may come where I may no longer need to go out with a wig.

My other victories these past two weeks have been more mental & social. I came out to one of my work colleagues, and I’ve basically started living my life full time (outside of work).

Speaking of, my new boss is about to find out about me too. More on that tomorrow…



One more reason I shamelessly love Jack In The Box

Hi friends.

Oftentimes, it’s the little things in life that make us perk up and smile. For me, one of those moments came over the past weekend.

I had left the bar from another fun night out with friends, after a few cocktails. As most people tend to do in that state, I got an urge. To borrow from the famous Saturday Night Live sketch, the only cure…is Jack In The Box tacos.

Heaven at 2AM. Don’t judge me.

At any rate, I had finished ordering and rolled up to the window. As I paid for my meal, I overheard the cashier yell back and forth with the cook, over whose order was whose. She ended their exchange with “Si, los tacos? Son para ella.” Roughly translated, that means “Yes, the tacos? They’re for her.”

It made my tacos taste that much better. Well, that and the Sriracha at home. 😉
