i was so happy

  • Me before chapter 50: Manga route is the worst route.
  • Chapter 50: *features Takane as a genuinely decent human being and not treating her love interest like shit for no reason*
  • Me now: MY SKIN IS CLEAR. MY CROPS ARE THRIVING. I HAVE 20/20 VISION. MANGA ROUTE HAS SINGLEHANDEDLY SAVED MY ENTIRE LIFE

So, Friday night I tell my step-mom I’m genderfluid, right? Well, Saturday morning she gives me a ride to work, and in the car she’s like “so, you measured yourself for the binder right? It wasn’t guess work?” And I told her yes, I measured myself. Then she asks “okay and you know the limitations on binders? Like how long to wear it and stuff?” Again I say yes, and I even have stretching tips and stuff to help out and stuff like that. She goes “okay, well also, I looked into this last night so I could know how to help, that a common side effect is fluid backing up into your lungs, so they say that when you take it off, you should cough deeply, even raise your arms above your head to help, so you can get it out.”

The entire car ride was her telling me everything she looked up and different tips, and honestly I couldn’t stop smiling at work that day

In case you didn’t know, so far this year USA Hockey has won:

World Juniors

Men’s U-18

Women’s U-18

Women’s world championship

The only loss in all of these tournaments was to Canada in the preliminary rounds of the women’s U-18s, where we ended up beating them in the finals. In every other tournament the US was undefeated. Try and tell me how the US isn’t a hockey country again?
