Today marks one year of living in Auburn, Alabama. One year, exactly.
I decorated a Christmas tree for the first time and had my first stocking!
It was cold and I saw snow for the first time!
I made the most amazing friends ever!
I wrangled an opossum.
I saw fire spinning.
I let people see my legs.
I went sleeveless in public.
I went swimming! Sometimes even naked under the sun.
I ate homemade southern food.
I tasted fresh honeysuckle.
I wore dresses all summer!
I held a snake for the first time.
Sarra visited me from Seattle!
I went to Florida.
I went back to California because of the love and support of people who have never met me.
I received flowers from friends and from myself.
I saw beautiful skies.
I found a psychiatrist who knows his shit. I found a therapist who believes in me. I started working with The Fat Nutritionist. I was part of an amazing book on female sexuality. I applied to start at the community college in January. I got involved in the kink community. I'm a thousand times more social. I have a clean home and a bedroom I love. I no longer feel so attached to possessions. I decorated for Halloween. I dyed my hair a bunch of colors. I surrounded myself with amazing and kind people.
Honestly, I feel as if I should have accomplished more in the last 12 months. But I'm happy. And that's, really, the best thing I could have ever hoped for.
