2021.12.06 08:35 startcinematography St Michael's Mount - messze a legvarázslatosabb hely Cornwallban. Majdnem olyan, mint egy mese. Az öbölben van egy árapály-sziget, a tetején egy misztikus kastéllyal. A szigetet a tenger választja el a parttol. Majd apálykor varázsütésre a tenger szétválik, és egy rejtett ösvény tárul elénk.....

Saw one of these in askreddit but was very American centric. Thought it’d be good to do a UK one, so UK Redditor’s could learn more about different jobs/careers out there.

2021.12.06 08:35 LilacMauve This is who I am
I am a woman. My name is Lilac. These are ideas I hold as truth and have accepted for around three months.
It actually happened the night before classes started in September. I do most of my deep thinking when I’m in bed, and for whatever reason, my brain decided to do a jigsaw puzzle with all of my thoughts. The final picture was me. I honest to God sat up in bed and whispered “holy shit” to myself. And that’s what it was: a ‘holy shit’ moment. One of those thoughts that isn’t just a thought, it was an answer. For an hour I sat there and tried to argue against the conclusion. I wasn’t a girl. I was born a man, I wanted to be a man. No matter what I said, it was just something I couldn’t disprove to myself. If someone pushes you down the stairs, it’s kinda hard to argue that gravity is a lie.
So for a week or so I kept researching it. I posted a few things online anonymously. A lot of people said that I had the right idea, but it easily could’ve just been an echo chamber; could’ve been just a bunch of morons all commenting nonsense. But the more and more I looked, the more it made me think I was a woman. So, I went with it. I thought of myself as a woman, but never told people, never looked the part, just mentally thought myself a woman. I told a close friend from [highschool] who didn’t really talk with any of my other friends, and she really believed me. She called me Lilac, she really made me feel like a girl.
It felt correct. It felt natural.
There are points where you think it would be insanity. Points where you just cannot accept this is correct. I mean, look at me. I’ve never liked makeup, never into girly crap, I pee standing up. In appearance, I’m a guy. My voice is distinctly male.
Think of it like a belt. This belt is presentable, and everyone knows you as the person who wears the belt. People expect to see you wearing that belt. Every day. All the time. Until you die, that belt is who you are to the world. The belt is tight, it definitely could do with being looser. Thing is, you’re already at that last hole, and the damn thing is still too tight. Nobody’s ever said you could take the belt off, and the tight belt around your waist is all you’ve ever known. The world has pointed at that belt, and you got the thumbs up because you were doing as expected.
One day, for whatever reason, you could just be messing around with that stupid belt, I don’t know. It comes off. All that tightness, all the restriction, gone. You feel so free, so relieved. Nobody in the whole world knows that belt is off, but you decide that you like this feeling. One problem: the world knows you for that belt around your waist. It’s wrong in their eyes, for you to be without that stupid, tight belt. So you put it back on, despite how uncomfortable it is. But something is different now. You’ve finally got a taste of life without the belt, and despite how weird and different it seems to you, you prefer it this way. You put on the belt when you need, but when nobody is looking, you take that stupid belt off.
I’m friends with a girl who goes to [college]. She left at the end of last year for academic reasons but goes to a community college nearby. We’re still very close friends. She’s come over a few times to spend the night, mainly to see her boyfriend who goes here. She hangs out with him during the day, then she comes up to my room to sleep in the spare bed I have. However I did it, one night at damn near 3AM I told her what I’d been thinking for about 3 weeks at that point. She was understandably tired, but once she started to hear me out she woke up more and more, and believe it or not, she got excited. She took me up to the deserted 12th floor common area [in my dorm] and styled me in a more feminine way. She called me Lilac, and accepted me for who I thought I was. I felt happy. I felt correct.
Time has passed. More and more people know. [Good male friend] and the guys know. A good friend who graduated [highschool] before I did, someone I consider my best friend, she knows. Me and the girl from [college] went to visit her and hang out. I have female clothes. I have a wig. We went out to a bar and had fun for about an hour and a half. People didn’t give me any evil looks, nothing that said ‘you’re an imposter, a fraud.’ I felt normal.
I’m sure this is a lot to take in. For damn near 20 years you’ve been my grandfather, and more realistically, a father figure. You’ve always been a person to come to for advice or permission. You and I are a bit more similar than we let on. A big part of that is the fact that we have little in terms of family, and we instead rely on each other.
I’ll be honest. During high school, I drifted away from you two. Majorly. All the fighting and crap the house went through as a whole put a toll on me, and teens take that to an extreme. I’ve always had a good head on my shoulders, but back then it was a very selfish head. Slow to trust, quick to take that trust away. Granted, I’m still much the same in the present, just more realistic, more rational.
I say this because there were points during high school that I had to go on my own. I didn’t tell you two a lot because, in that time, I trusted myself more than my family. When we went through all the cancer stuff, I was put into positions where I had to care. Eventually I was back to square one with both of you. Neutral ground, simply put. I went from genuinely disliking going home to giving both of you due respect that I’d give to anyone else in that situation. I had my good days and bad days, but everyone does.
When that day in August came, I made a decision. I stayed with you in your time of need, and I made sure that you wouldn’t shut down. I decided you were family again. Everything that happened that made me think that my family wasn’t there for me was pushed aside, since regardless of how I felt, I needed to be there for my family instead.
The way I see it, her passing happened at the worst possible time. Of course, death is always the worst time, but this combined with all the other stress and me leaving for college again, it screwed with your head. I’m not gonna assume anything about how you think, feel, or believe. That’s not for me to decide. All I can say is that after I left, you only had yourself and the cat to grieve with. You need someone to talk to. I’m not sure how much of it you’ve already got past. But you genuinely need someone to help you work that out. Pretty much everyone I’ve met since I went to [highschool] is horribly depressed so I’ve become pretty good at helping people figure stuff out. By no means do I call myself an expert, but I’m willing to listen. You definitely need some kind of therapist or counsellor, but that’s up to you.
I see a counsellor at school. She’s been helping me figure things out. It’s less like I need therapy (well, I do, but it’s probably because I’m sad just like the rest of the world), I see her more to have someone to show my progress, and think of ways to go forward.
There are ways forward. There are options available to me that can help me feel more like the person I want to be. [State insurance] covers pretty much most of it all, from what I’ve seen. A big step would be something like HRT. Simply put, that’s hormone pills. The thing is, if I started that, I personally would see it through to the end. I would look different, act different. Eventually I’d see a speech therapist and start sounding different. The only thing that would not change is the person underneath all of it. No matter what happens, I’m always gonna be me. You’ve known me all my life, and if you want, you can know me until that life is done.
I haven’t told you anything about this. I’m not doing this to keep you in the dark because I'm mad or anything. Regardless of my stance on it, you both deserve to know and have to know. At the end of the day, you keep a roof over my head. You bankroll me. Closer even, you’re my only immediate family. You have a history of not really being accepting of different things. I’m not gonna get preachy, though. The only reason I even brought that up is because I am different now. I’m transgender. Your grandson sees himself as a woman. You could call me your granddaughter if you want.
I’m not gonna force a single thing on you right now. I’ve left this note here tonight because I know how you react to things, and I know you need space to process big things like this. You’re probably gonna roll up a cigarette or two, go out to the garage, and either sit on the little lip thing on the base of the door or inside. I’m gonna leave it up to you to set the boundaries while I’m at home. You can tell anyone you’d like, or keep it between us.
I want to have an actual conversation about this. Please just hear me out. In my ideal world, you’ll be alright with it. I wouldn’t bug you about it 24/7, but there would be things that would change.
I only ask for patience. I was obviously too scared to just come out and say it face to face at first, but even so, talking about it is a big step for me.
See you soon. -Whatever name you want to call me, but it’s the person who sleeps on your couch.
