I got my eyebrows done today which is something that I have been wanting to do for YEARS! Now that I have gone full-time, I thought I'd finally do them :)

I have uploaded some pics to my gallery.

HRT 4 months + 5 days.

Nice Jenny! You and I actually started HRT on the exact same day, and I have to say the shapes brows really work for you. :) I got mine shaped as well a few weeks ago and I've been maintaining them self. It makes a huge difference in ones appearance I think. :)

Anyways looking great!

Big Hugs,

Sarah

Thanks Sarah :) I am very happy with them and you're right - it has made a huge difference to my face. By the way, you look AMAZING, seriously. You look like you're 20! I had to go and check your profile to find out your age :)

For having been on HRT for the same time as you, I am very happy with my progress so far. I think it's not bad for someone who's 12 years older than you!

Life is good, isn't it?

:o Wow... I just looked at your profile.. I totally had you pegged for 30 when you said 12 years older than me I was like "Yeah right.." You look really great! :)

And thanks!

I'm really glad that things are going well for you even considering the loss of job. You have a great attitude and that goes such a very long way. :) Keep it up Jenny!

Thanks Sarah <3 You've made my day! Yep, I'm turning 41 next month. Maybe the fact that I'm finally feeling comfortable in my skin is what is showing through? I feel fantastic!

Kay - just waxed :) I did hunt around for someone I could trust - seeing as it's the first time that I have ever got them shaped. If anyone reading wants to know where I went:

Vibromania

3/3-5 Hewish Rd

Croydon, VIC 3136

Australia

(03) 9723 3299

Ask for JAN

(I am not sure if this is against the site rules - so mods: you can delete if you have to!)

I've never gotten mine waxed, but got my first threading a few weeks ago and it was a great experience.

My GT says I look like I've lost 10 years since I started seeing her. Not sure that's true, as people have always thought that I'm much younger than I am. I usually don't correct them ;)

BTW, I'm 14 years older than you, Sarah :blink::blush:

Now before all you girls go running off about how great you look for your age....We expect that young folks look good. From this point the 2nd anniversary of the 39th is a 24 years back. I look and feel younger as well.

Oh and back on subject. Your eyes look great. Raising the brows really opens up the eyes and lets the beauty out at any age.

Hugs,

Charlie

You should! My hair stylist said that getting your brows waxed makes a bigger difference on how ones face appears than even hair style. I used to think my brows were just fine before, but now I look back at the pictures and I cringe just a little. :) Im sure you would be happy with the results.

I have to ask, what exactly is threading?

You're also looking really good Kaylee, and even better with each new photo I see!

My eyebrows were a real bushy highlight on my face. I mentioned this to my electrolysis lady and she said I can fix that for you if you like. No time like the present so we discussed how I wanted them to look. She proceeded to work on my brows for the next half hour. Quite a change. During this weeks regular visit of my war on facial hair, she tweaked the line a bit and cleaned things up. They now look even better. I like how they came out and maintaining them is almost nothing at all. Electrolysis can kill those hairs for good if done right. Over the next year working on the rest of my face she'll go after any strays for me. No waxing, no tweezing seemed liked the best choice for me. Everyone deals with those pesky hairs in a way that works for them. Here is another choice for you to consider.

      Hi dear friends! Happy Friday to those of you who celebrate Friday, lol. Please forgive me if I already said this, but I've decided to quit my job. I believe I shared that my employer had been giving me the run around regarding disability accommodations. For me, that was the final straw - is it worth it to fight for this job which becomes exponentially more stressful (education in Florida, nuff said)? No. I'm waiting to get paid for something by them, then I'll get the ball rolling on my exit. I do plan to document all the HR shenanigans I've encountered and send an email to the VP of HR, and possibly cc the college President. I'm also considering attaching my lengthy grievance narrative from the official grievance I filed a couple years ago just to give them an idea of what the last few years have been like for me at work. No intention on burning bridges, but it occurred to me that if anything legal-wise comes up later, that it would be helpful to have such documentation.    Since I decided to quit my job, I was flying high on a pink cloud, feeling so happy and creative. Then, I got socked with major anxiety suddenly. It got so bad, I've considered pursuing psychiatric care for the first time in many many years. I think I will pursue this because I want to document the aspect of my ptsd which is related to living with chronic illness because I plan to apply for SSD (Social Security Disability), and the more thorough the documentation, the better. Speaking of which, as an educator with an educator's schedule, all my annual doctor's appointments tend to get scheduled in the summer. I've been looking at my calendar and it seems like I'll be seeing 150 (slight exaggeration) doctors this summer. Related to that, since I've been on the phone so often getting records, labs, prescriptions, appointments, etc., I feel I've been ma'am'ed about a zillion times. Whyeeeeee? (That's a rhetorical question.) it's so gross to me to be called ma'am. I am doing well last few days. Tired, but feeling much less overwhelmed by this huge change in my life. Plus, I have been making more art, and have been getting some more opportunities in that vein.    This week, I came out to my choir director. It just came up organically in conversation. It felt great to tell him. He's very open minded. Last night we had rehearsal. I noticed that he referred specifically to "SA" (sopranos and altos) when he wanted to hear us, whereas before he might have said "ladies"! That made me very happy.    I also came out to a close friend this week. Again, I had not planned on it. She was telling me about some challenges in her relationship with her bf, and I just opened up and told her about challenges I'd been going through with my spouse since realizing I'm neither cis nor het. She was great - totally loving & supportive. I feel a lot closer to her now.    @Ticket For Epic & @Heather Nicole I also suffer from major social anxiety, although amazingly I don't when I write here (although I used to). I think it's a testament to how genuinely supportive and compassionate this community endeavors to be. Ironically, when I disclose to friends irl how hideously anxious I am sometimes, they are amazed bc I "fake" being fine so well (until I have a meltdown, that is). Similarly, from my perspective, you two both seem so sweet, kind & thoughtful. Regardless of how you feel you're being perceived, for what it's worth, that's how I see you. A friend once told me that whenever I find myself fretting over how I've been perceived (did I say something terrible? have I unwittingly hurt someone? do they hate me now?), I should recall my true heart's intention the moment I said or did the thing I'm being hypervigilant about. When I realize my intention in that moment was loving, altruistic, vulnerable, whatever, it gives me a bit of relief - a small reality check - because I do trust in the power of intention.    @Ticket For Epic that meme - to anyone who thinks trans people, especially young trans people (bc that's a growing demographic), are "choosing" trans ID just to be chic or special or something...geez, right? I mean, there are people who crave drama and conflict, and I'm to the point where I am PROUD to be trans, but why would someone "choose" to be trans given all that. To be clear, I'm contesting the incorrect notion that trans is a choice. Lol, there are less expensive and life-disrupting "hobbies" one could adopt!    @Hannah Renee oh no! Is there nothing to be done? I mean seriously, they ought to consider your safety and mental health. Do you think there is someone in administration you could appeal to? I hope so.    @Mmindy all my life ppl have commented on my soft skin. Now, I understand it's due to my (previously undiagnosed) Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (a genetic collagen defect). So now when someone asks me what my secret is, I tell them it's faulty genes, lol!

      Some odd facts     The human brain, which is the core of the central nervous system and a miraculous creation of nature, can process as many as 70,000 thoughts in a day! When I can't sleep it seems like that many a minute     On an average, a person accidentally eats about 430 bugs in each year of his/her life. Weird. Isn’t it?   Science has revealed that a tropical cyclone releases heat energy at the rate of 50 to 200 exajoules per day. This rate of the release of energy comes to about 200 times the world’s capacity of generating electrical energy. This rate of energy release is equivalent to that released during an explosion of a 10-megaton nuclear bomb every 20 minutes!   Polar bears can run about 25 miles an hour and jump to about 6 feet in air. Polar bear fur consists of a layer of thick under-fur covered by an outer layer of guard hair. The guard hair appear in shades of white to tan but are actually transparent. The transparent fur makes the polar bears almost invisible under infrared photography!   The blood vessels, which form a vital part of the circulatory system in human beings, are responsible for enabling the transport of blood throughout the body. If blood vessels were made to lay end to end, together they would encircle the Earth twice, by stretching up to a distance of about 100,000 kilometers.

      I have described myself as the narrator in a movie about my life (think of "stand by me"). I observe but don't live. I don't feel I exist.   Finally recognizing I am Existing but not living is what finally got me over my barrier and get help with gender therapy.

      Jani I don’t feel very strong.  With one day to go before 75 and being on HRT for 10 the bales are getting very heavy.  Sleep does come easy!   Mindy we use the bales for our sheep.  I try to have around 300 to be safe.

      Bless you Alan, I was fortunate to see him and Yes live a few times over the years, what a powerful rhythm section he and Squire made up for many decades. The best of the best, I have lot's of their recordings, and treasure them.    One of many favorites by them, the combined effort from '91, powerful

      Understand the "Acceptance" but not satisfied with the despair that has ahold of me and even working through it brings so little satisfaction.

      Money can cause us to revisit pain. Mine is in my arthritic hands from decades of blue collar work. Now I'm semi retired and building training equipment in my small shop. My doctor mentioned that my hands are nice and soft, then asked. What kind of lotion do you use? My answer was Aspercream for pain.   Have a great weekend.   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      It changes eventually.  The goal is to make your life as "normal" as possible no matter what form that takes.

      Yes this is sad.  All the great performers are passing.
