I’ve been spending the last couple hours fully dressed up, having some time to myself once again. Allow me to indulge this one adventure in a somewhat “undisclosed location.” ^_^;
I acquired a black jersey racerback maxi-dress over the weekend, and I’m wearing it today, complete with black pantyhose, black 3.5 inch high heels, and my favorite wig, makeup, and jewelry. I’m spending a few hours relaxing, watching afternoon TV (I had a few moments in tears while watching some afternoon talk shows. ^_^;) and generally feeling so relaxed and comfortable.
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!
(video window rescaled to not break layouts on 1024-pixel width screens, like my old notebook and my new netbook.)
I can’t explain how I come up with the titles to my posts, either here or elsewhere. Sometimes they make sense with the actual posts. I’m kind of funny like that.
Anyway, a quick note – Today is a good day, for I’ve received my very first non-spam comment here. Every bit of feedback helps me immensely.
If you’re reading this, and you like what you’re reading, but haven’t offered feedback, that’s alright as well. Just the thought that some people are actually paying notice to a place like this will boost my confidence significantly.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to fix on my re-entry vector for touchdown back down here on Planet Earth… ^_^; Long, long ago, back in my grade school days, I wanted to be an astronaut, but that’s another story I’ll tell eventually.
Love and kisses, as always, ^_^;
