    I used the men's restroom yesterday and today. I finally pass well enough to be the cute boy girls giggle about in public. Also I finally broke up with my boyfriend. I'm still a bit torn up about that, but it really needed to happen

    i spent 6 days in hospital last month, even though i looked like a train wreck i was referred to as Sarah, and she/her pronouns. it was awesome, even though it was a very scary and rough surgery and recovery. so i kinda know what you mean hun.

    First makeup attempt down!

    And no, there aren't any pictures, it wasn't pretty, but I DID enjoy the heck out of it.

    So... today.

    Was crowned fairest maidens of the Faire.

    Had many pictures taken.

    Complimented on my beauty and style and grace.

    I won knighthood for my prowess with an axe.

    And I got them digits...

    A small victory today -

    This might sound kinda dumb but after I cut my hair short a few years back I stopped wearing hairbands on my wrist or any sort of masculine "wrist wear". lol

    SO my hairs a little longish now I can do a man bun type thing today but OMG I love how masculine my hands and wrists look with this brown hair tie on them. Makes my arms and hands look... bigger?

    First time I put anything on my wrist like this in years and I love it, alleviating body dysphoria and everything.

    Its the little things haha. Time to get a watch or something I think :wink:

    i had a support group meeting last night at the university, had dinner with my son just before, it was great, new people, old friends, lots of laughs. several of my friends, that I haven't seen since Pride, complemented me on how pretty I looked at the parade. I came out from the meeting feeling really great.

    I can do a pull up now. Like, with knuckles facing to me. They gave me a hard time before. So I guess I'm not gaining much but the muscle improve their work. I feel like a child now, I wish I could just run and climb and pick up a fun fight to see what else my body can offer me now :grin:

    HUGE! The only time I could ever do a pull up was AFTER I started hormones....I guess cause I was lighter or something? All those years on testosterone and nothing, a month after I start estrogen BAM. lol

    Congrats!

    A substitute teacher today called me by female pronouns. (I'm genderqueer, but I prefer female pronouns over male pronouns when I'm forced to use one of the two.)
