#107 – Everytime You Go Away (You Take A Piece Of Me With You)

(#107 in a limited-edition series! Collect them all – Yes, I used a Paul Young song title for the title of this post… Daryl Hall wrote it, Hall and Oates performed it before Paul Young covered it)

This is mirrored from a post I just send out on my Facebook (a public-viewable post) – and is being mirrored to PINKessence as well.

For every person on here who removed their Facebok account, and leaves their circle, I have to ask myself “Was our friendship real?” – “Are we all just easily discardable?”

And yes, I am aware of this saying:
“When people walk away from you, let them go. Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you, and it doesn’t mean they’re bad people. It just means that their part in your story is over.”

#85 – With A Little Help From My Friends… (Part II)

With a brief interlude, and also because I passed the 40,000 total view mark in just under 13 months on Flickr, and after a stream-of-consciousness post hammered out within 15 minutes, at Kara’s suggestion, I’m resuming my post series, where I’m highlighting and thanking some of the people who have played a significant part in my emergence online, and in real life. My journey is still continuing; My story is still being written, and everyone here, and elsewhere, is a part of it.

For reference, please see the last post, “With A Little Help From My Friends… (Part I)

#84 – Sleep Is Overrated… ^_^;

We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Programme, “With A Little Help From My Friends… (Part II)” To Bring You The Following Julie Anne Project Special Presentation… ^_^;

(Only because my friend Kara T mentioned it – Yes, I am that easily impressionable – Why do you think I got into CSI: Miami, and became Yet Another Horatio Caine Cheesy One-Liner Fan?)

(Oh, it gets better – I watched my first full CSI: Miami episode this past weekend – It was a good one, though it was a repeat from Spring Break 2010 – and ironically, the one-liner that went right into the opening titles wasn’t spoken by Horatio this time… Awww.. ^_^; )

The first three days of 2011 were Dead Julie days, mainly because of my screwed up sleep habits, not having much of a plan, staying up most of the nights chatting with my girlfriends on PINKessence, and also the fact that it was either raining, or just cold outside. (And it’s been really cold the last couple of days, what with our area’s old familiar friend, the Tule Fog, drifting in. It’s a big, moist, cold, gray time out here, it’s chilly after the sun goes down, and kind of discouraging to even think of going outside. 😛 )

#83 – With A Little Help From My Friends… (Part I)

Just a few people out there I’d like to acknowledge. I may not get to everyone this time around, but I value everyone who I’ve made the effort to connect with, and those who have friended me back as well. We need friends, especially in our journey. We are not autonomous beings, no matter what we’re told by the world around us.

#31 – Reaching Out And Making Friends… (Video Link)

It hasn’t been easy for me, even when I’m not being Julie Anne. Even now, I’m still hesitant to keep in contact with the few friends in the trans community I have met over Flickr. I’m still trying to work on not overthinking and worrying what kind of impression I’ll make on them. I guess that’s part of what keeps me in my own closet. It’s a weakness I acknowledge, and one I know I will have to work on.

For those I have met, I haven’t forgotten about any of you. I will get around to getting back in touch with you. I’m just sorting things out, as always.

In the meantime, here’s a video from Lady Vixion on YouTube, that just seemed to click with me, on the importance of making friends (and face to face contact with same) in the trans community – Enjoy!
