    Just got home from the Stronger Together meeting that was held at the Livingston County Government Center. I have to say it was an amazing experience. 50 or so people in a room for two hours ready to stop complaining and get up and do something. Lots of ideas. Lots of action plans and I made some fantastic contacts so I can start working on real things (that have been on my agenda) as soon I get up in the morning. Right now though I'm exhausted, so I'm getting in my jammies and finding something to curl up and watch.

    Oh I should probably eat too. I don't think I've eaten yet today.

    I started getting into sculpting a couple months ago. I find working with the soft clay very therapeutic. I've done two large scale statues. Well still working on the second one but did my funky Edgar Allan Poe today, The other is based on a drawing I did call Stoner Toad. He was finished New Years Eve night.

    The picture you see here is in fact me. Three Halloweens ago I was the Wicked Witch for the kids. I did some artistic things with shots taken of me is all. I was at one point Alice this year and did a series of Alice in Wonderland related art works. Do they represent my daily look? No. But is internet a true reflection of reality? No.

      Of course it's kinda stupid that I'm referencing a picture that will more than likely change. Variety is the spice of life and variety is the spice of me.

      Microsoft has selected me to speak about woman in technology next month at Microsoft in Washington state. They are aware of my transition yet never mention this, they simply see me as a female.

    Happy to say Microsoft has awarded me their MVP award for the third year running yesterday. Out of millions there are less than 4,000 selected each year.

    Microsoft holds a summit for five days in November for the MVP program where they pay for everything except what it cost to get there. So I will be off to the summit in just under one month in Washington State, just a three hour drive in my lovely Miata.

    I keep trying to upload a profile photo, and... it always, always says... "file size too large"  ???   What is the limitation? How can I tell?  What can I do, if anything, to reduce the file size, so that I can put... something... anything in the profile photo spot.

    Please help... you were so helpful before... and quick, too.

    Thanks... LexiLexi_pink_toes_and_silver_shoes_black_br

    When fear takes over because you realized you only human and a tall drink of gorgeous woman.  No it doesn't make me lesser then men, but their equal because I won't be treated like a secondhand human.

  13. JennySilva

    well 2 weeks down and 4 weeks to go before i can get back to my transitioning then i have 2 months and i'll have to stop again for the right hip  YA 

  14. Michele800226

    Not confused, just sorting out my thoughts and that is making me scared that others are going to be caught in the crossfire.

  15. JennySilva

    Wow July the 8th only 4 more days till i have my hip surgery. i like can hardly  wait   "NOT!"  i want to pack a bag grab my dog  and head into the wood's and they will never find me. i hare hospitals. and i surly don't like being cut open and have them messing around inside you never know what they might forget in there. But if i don't do it well walking is nice to be able to do so i guess it time to bite the bullet and get er done the one good thing is six weeks after i will be able to get back to my HRT and transitioning and that's all that matters to me it's been really hard having what i need right there at my finger tips to be happy but cant use them. all i can think about that old saying all good things come to those who wait 

  16. JennySilva

    well im still waiting to get back on my meds. My doctor thought me a curveball and now i getting my left hip replacement  on July 12th and as soon as it heals i'll be getting the right hip done. so it looks like another 4 to 6 months on the side line dreaming of getting back to HRT . at least after all the pre opp appointments i went to i know im in good health and im ready to move on with my transition  

    1. Ronnie Virga

    I was allergic to bees when I was a child. On more than one occasion I provoked a bee so it would sting me. What I suffered from the sting was better to me in my child's mind than the abuse I may have faced by going to school.

    Ears just pierced, wearing two small Zirconium ones - Hard to believe I waited 6 decades to get this done - What a feeling of freedom.

    1. Ronnie Virga

      Fabulous. Getting mine done soon too!

      Thank you - it was a good decision - now the whole world of earrings are now possible - cannot wait until I am healed and can wear larger more feminine ones - any ideas?  Maybe a drop style.  Was just at the stylist today and my hair is now way down my back and colored blond.  Now this with my earrings the change is no longer subtitle rather I now look much more like a woman, even in guys clothes. 

      Other changes - Even my muscles look more like a girls.  Just had a physical two days ago and apparently my T level is way down, way below normal.  My natural estrogen level also appears to be up likely above normal.  Wondered why I was feeling fatigued lately and appearing to lose some muscle.
