I went in for a few hours this morning just to be sure everything was running smoothly and could continue to run smoothly for the remainder of the day, and then came home. I thought about staying but with the change back probably (knock wood) happening soon, I decided I'd rather be in my flat than, say, in the middle of an assignment.
I have to say, there are things I'm going to miss and things I'm going to be fine without. The body itself I haven't minded; the biological changes have been a little more of an adventure. I've always considered myself a fairly enlightened bloke--my mum made certain of that--but this has been more than just sympathy.
I guess I'll know for certain how deeply the changes were once I retake those tests Tosh gave me and she compares the results. But there were other things, too. I would go so far as to say increased empathy, increased socialbility, and--I'm not sure how to describe this, except I've felt stronger the last few days in an entirely different way. (I fell apart a little the first day, but it didn't last.)
So, I've got music playing (Death Cab's cover of "Love Song," if you're curious) and the computer on, and I took a few pictures just to remember, and now we wait.
