happy with myself & comfortable in my body (finally).

obviously since moving to california a little over a year ago in november of 2008, i really have come into my own and feel far better about my body and rarely suffer from lower dysphoria anymore. here is a collection of several videos i filmed throughout the year talking about being happy with myself and finally being comfortable with my body. the first video is the most recent one, posted to day, while it ends with a video taken in late march, just months after permanently settling here in january of 2009.
