I'm only 19 and I never went to college or university, so I don't have any debts I can pay off. Yet. :P

I'd move out of my apartment and buy a house close to my work. (I wouldn't quit my job, I love it too much and to be honest I'd get bored out of my mind without it) Not a big house, just big enough for me and maybe two spare rooms (one for guests and one for my guinea pigs <3) and I'd buy 2 more guinea pigs. Or maybe 3. :P

I'd pay off my parent's morgage and I'd pay off my 10 best friend's debts. And buy presents for all my friends and coworkers <3

I'd put the rest in the bank and live off the interest. I don't need much money, I'm cheap. :P

But I'd donate a lot of it. And do random good deeds. For example, usually on my breaks at work I go over to the grocery store nearby and get a sandwhich or something to drink. A lot of people see I'm in uniform and only buying one thing, so if they have a lot of stuff they offer to let me go first. If I was rich and that happened, I'd pay for my stuff, then give the cashier a hundred dollar bill and tell them that's to pay for the nice person behid me and they can keep the change.

Pay up all my college loans and spend at least a month in the Philippines to see my family members there. But I would love to do a Euro Trip, traveling to: England, France, Spain, Switzerland, Germany (I want to drive down the Autobahn). Maybe even go to Japan.

But I cannot forget these:

My complete HRT and SRS:

- Breast Augmentation

- Vaginoplasty

- Minor Facelift

- Adam's Apple Removal

- Voice Therapy and anything else I haven't mentioned

My full female wardrobe

Identification change (the whole ten yards of it)

What else I want to get with the money:

- Either a BMW M3 or M6 (I love driving and working on cars, especially BMWs)

- Maybe a project car to work on

- Complete my DJ setup and establish my own recording (and photography) studio

And I might donate the rest to my desired charity. It's a lot, but that what I would do if winning the lottery ever happened.

If I won the lottery for $150mil I'd understand I would received a little over half that.

First I would pay off all my debts. Then I would give 1 mil after taxes to all my siblings and nephews (have no nieces). Then I would give $10,000 to each member I work with. There are only 20 of them. I will quit my job next. After that I will make sure I am secure for the rest of my life. Say $10mil, mostly in gold. Then Laura's would be next. It would be my #1 charity. I would want to set up a trust fund to make sure moderators have the money for GRS and to make sure the money continues to flow in. It probably will be 1/2 to 2/3 of what I have left. Also I would make sure this site has the means to run for the foreseeable future to make sure transgender people who need help get it. Then I monitor my relatives who need help and give them the support they need. Finally I would look at other charities that I believe in to make sure I could make a difference.

      I tear up at just about anything even remotely sad. Even some sad music can get the water works going. I’m okay with it though. Feels good to be stretching my emotional range.

      Found out my nephew Nick came out as genderfluid and mom accepted it.Asked him where he got his advice and told her from me.She told me thank you.My cousin Lewis,he did take it well too and is glad I helped out with advice.They both noticed he loved dressing as the opposite gender for a long time.14 years old and wants to dress as Nicole.

      I cry at the ending scene in LOTR-Return of the King.  When he sees Arwin.  And it continues when he kneels before the four hobits and tells them “you kneel for no one”.   I lost it before now I’m a wreck.  Lol

      The other I watched a documentary on elementary particules and physics and I cried loll

      I freakin cry over commercials!   Movies and TV series with sad or tear jerking scenes plow me right under.  My wife laughs at me so much over this.   I admit I like the freedom to do so now.  I don’t have to hold it in or hide it anymore.   😭😢😉
    • ShawnaLeigh
      I think you are doing great with your makeup.  I’m very inexperienced but it looks really good to be.   It amazes me that there are still places that still are homophobic.   It’s a bit out of your way but the University of Vermont is extremely tolerant and supportive toward LBGTQ and the pay well too.  Vermont is a wonderful place to transition so we will take you!!!

      I always used to tear up watching emotional movies.  Now I do so even more.  The nice thing is that I no longer have to feel self-conscious about it.

      Well that sucks. Hopefully you can find another way forward. I don't know what the situation is in Arkansas, but here it's legal to discriminate against trans people. Our colleges are pretty tolerant though. May you find an employer that doesn't suffer from recto-cranial inversion.   Hugs!

      Well, I finally got the talk by my principal due to two calls from unidentified females voicing concerns about me wearing makeup while giving GED tests. He said he personally doesn't care how I choose to express myself. But with attendance being as low as it is, he really doesn't want to create any more variables that might threaten the school's budgetary futures by pushing away new or current students.    I knew it was coming, but I let myself think it'd be much further down the line. Yeah, it hurts, and yes, I'm doing what I've taught myself not to ruminate and spiral back into depression. But dang it...I was finally feeling happy about myself. Oh, well....just keep repeating "progress isn't always linear".

      I always tear up at the end of the movie, “Far and Away”.  The ending pulls on my heartstrings in a happy way.  But recently my wife and I watched “Boy Meets Girl” and for whatever the reason...it hit me like a ton of bricks.  I had a good cry even though it was probably not the most realistic plot line for a movie.   Susan R🌷   LOL, I noticed I had already mentioned “Far and Away” in a previous post on this same thread back in Oct.  oh well!  It’s hard to keep track of all the posts I make.

      Well, I've bathed and applied a generous amount of baby powder to prevent chaffing....now it's time to put the rest of me on. Weight gain to me is putting all that silicon back on. Weight loss is taking it off at the end of the day. What HELL we girls put ourselves through just to look nice. Go figure?   Be safe. Be Smart. You've gotta be STRONG to carry ON. (An extra 20 pounds? Thank god I didn't opt for a ridiculously  bigger cup size, or butt size.)
    • Markjvp
      so far no movies has made me cry at least not fully cry but some has made some tears come out
    • Donnie_1961
      Work with what you've got. And if you don't GOT then go out and BUY IT!   Be safe. Be Smart.

      That's one of the government's reasons for not putting an X marker on passports, but mostly "it'll cost too much to implement those changes" which is demonstrably incorrect. But personally, I would assume that's just one of the many considerations the individual should make when planning international travel. Some places are hostile, others (like Saudi Arabia) reportedly refuse entry to anyone with an X marker on their passport. So, that's kinda convenient, I guess? Incidentally, I've done some investigating since reading and posting this, and it seems that if your state's drivers license permits an X marker, then your Real ID will, too.  But I know that there are some people with a severe enough level of dysphoria or emotional triggers that having a gender marker on an ID that's different from how they identify/present will cause distress or out them as trans. So, as it stands, it's probably just a trade-off that the individual will have to make for themselves.
