I'm not sure if doing so is redundant, but rather than assuming one application specifying my ideal location would apply for them all, I was rather safe than sorry and sent in an application to all of them.
I'm...probably going to miss a lot of phone calls in the near future which mayyyyy screw me over, since my phone is currently in an entirely different room than the one I sleep in, but hopefully with luck I can respond to any interview requests and such.
I'm not quite on top of everything, but hey. Much much closer, and huge progress is progress!
Still not the best at home though given the continued misgendering and deadnaming but that was to be expected and it's not the worst case scenario I had feared so...better than what it could be.
All in all, I may not have taken control of my life yet but I'm on my way to having done so.
