In my mind I am still 23.

In my mind I can have an extra cola or two and stay up late working, then pop up bright and early for another round, and keep that up for a week when deadines demand.

The body does not share this delusion.

Of course, when I was 23, my mind thought that if I could just learn to properly perform femininity and no longer get read as male, that I would be happy and the world would be easier on me.

The body did not share that delusion, though it worked a little harder to try and accomodate it.

    Apparently I am anticipating summer, since dresses are suddenly interesting again. Though I have to shave my head to wear them, mostly.
