Dispatch from the other side, which I’m more active on.
Like I said, take your time exploring.
Latest activities, had an interview at Arizona Department of Public Safety (records position), while preparing for the next step in getting my Department of State security clearance card. (And being out as me at work for one week now, but I’ve been working up to it since January, going more genderfluid in the past weeks.)
Repairs on the car upcoming (rear bumper from a collision back in Dec, other party responsibility), just a matter of getting the car there, getting transport to and from work that day, getting the car back the next day… Next up, servicing the AC (vents get stuck occasionally), brake and suspension work.
(Bonus! One of my coworker friends – o hai Cassie! – has an auto shop in the family, conveniently near me, so I’ll be discussing estimates to fix some minor cosmetic damage on the passenger side of the car. I’m also over the moon that she is an ally and is happy for me being me at work.)
That’s about it for now, getting Saturday going lunch with my girlfriend, picking up some more essentials, now that I’m doing a full face worth of makeup daily. (Trust me, you don’t want to see me without makeup, my face is slightly hideous.)
Stay tuned! Actually, right now…
Oh, yeah, I’m not like f1nn5ter, don’t even watch them online.
This has been something that I’ve been dealing with for at least four decades, and it’s been almost 15 years since my egg really started hatching.
That doesn’t mean I don’t get jealous at anyone who started earlier in life, take better care of themselves, look better, have decent curves, actual defined cleavage, longer and fuller hair, etc.
I really need to STOP comparing myself to others. I’m my own person, I have my own style, and I do have people who like and compliment me.
So, yeah, it was never just a phase. It was just the ongoing journey to answer one question: “Who am I?”
The answer was right in front of my face for years.
I *am* Julie Anne, no matter what.
