8: Talk about the thing you are most proud of.
Um. I don’t know? Honestly. Probably either the rally for marriage equality that my GSA held this past year (we all worked so hard and did so good and like 80 people showed up despite actual pouring rain and it being a Monday night) and my work as Mistress Page in Merry Wives of Windsor at TPE. Although I’m also just so proud of that whole ensemble; we were all so good, such a true ensemble. We had a fucking sleepover. Ugh I get so gushy over TPE.
9:Talk about little things on your body that you like the most.
I love my eyes and my hair and my fuzzy little leg hair and my legs in general and my vagina, honestly, I love the crap out of my vagina.
15: Talk about the time you were most content in life.
Um, probably both times you and I met, in first grade and in ninth grade. That was really awesome. Also, every time Azu and I hung out in fourth grade when we were both, you know, batshit crazy little tykes with wild imaginations and way more mental illness than most ten year olds deal with. And, finally, TPE tour, all three days of it were totally fucking blissful.
24: Talk about something someone told you that meant a lot.
A few months ago, I saw this psychiatrist (who eventually got me on medication and into a trans* support group and stuff but that came a little later). Anyway, we were doing an evaluation, and near the end of the first session he called me a survivor and that meant so much to me, because I’d never thought of it that way, but I have survived a lot and it’s good enough and important enough that I keep surviving. It’s a lot easier to live with myself when I look at me in terms of survival vs. achievement.
