    Love it! A dress is just a dress, no matter who you are. A suit & tie is just a siut and tie. We don't need these superficial things to define us. I'm feeling your confidence. Fantastic!

    Ugh. I was so close! Passed the first section but failed the second. Turns out I'd misunderstood something. At least now I know for next time.

    Art and writing have always been a form of escape and a way to figure out emotions for me. Strangely, I've had poetry occur in my dreams. When that happens, I often Google search when I wake up to see if I heard it from somewhere else.

    I did German at school but unfortunately never had the time to properly learn it. So I decided to take it up again. It's been strange because as a result I've been having dreams where German is used sporadically.

    Bad luck, I failed my theory first time around as well. I'm sure you'll get it second time around.

    I get the escapism, you must be 'in the zone' when writing. Its the same for me if I'm running.

    I keep thinking about the advice 'You'll never get anywhere with no destination in mind'.

    It's stressful advice really because I don't really know where my destination is. I just keep being told that's not good enough, which I understand but it's just as if I'm waiting for something to click.

    I know I've talked about this before but it's on my mind once more.

    Maybe people are saying, "don't overthink it and pick a path to see where it leads"?

    You do have to start somewhere.

    I find it difficult to not overthink. I overthink overthinking.

    I have learned that sometimes it is good not to have a destination in mind. I have taken at times the approach of 'let me see where this or that leads me to,' without having a path or the destination defined.

    In so many ways everything we do, wether it be career, social or personal related, is often defined by a 'goal.' That goal becomes then the measurement of that one has made it. While I am myself a proponent of goals, and setting myself (realistic) goals/destinations has provided me with motivation to achieve things, sometimes it has created more stress than what it was worth. So, I started to take a different approach at times, and letting things fall into place in their own time. :slight_smile:

    I'm not sure that advice is right. Emphasis on the 'not sure'.

    Anyway, here's an alternative perspective.

    There's a support group meeting for young trans women tomorrow. It's a bit far away and in a location I've never been to, but I've decided that I will go anyway. I really need this right now and I don't now when I'll get another chance.

    Have you ever been to a clothing optional beach? Did you participate? Thoughts?

    I am going to be somewhere soon, where I will have an opportunity to go. I have always wanted to go, but never had the chance. I am not a voyeur. I just think it would be fun to swim in the ocean in my birthday suit.

    This probably more for the folks in the states, since beach attire is less restricted in Europe.

    I have never been, but in my city there is a part of the beach that is sepparated and meant only for women. There is only total 2 beaches like this in the whole country. I'm too shy to even go to the sauna naked. I know in Finland that's normal, not in Estonia though. In my home sauna I don't mind, but public sauna is a different thing.

    I never have. I'd do it if I had the chance though, as long as the vibe felt right.

    I'd love a home sauna, it's not really a thing in the UK though except at spa hotels and high end gyms. I've never seen anyone not wearing swimwear in one though.

    In my country it's a normal thing to have saunas in homes. I think everyone have one. Saturdays are usually sauna days.

    It's a pretty well known place in the states and I hear that the vibe is chill. If the weather is good, I am going to go for it. I will let you all know how it goes.
