London, England, from Canary Wharf to The City. Look closely and you can see the bridges over the Thames.
Reasons I am happy:
I went for a run yesterday
My job is lovely
The more I see of the practice the more I enjoy what they do
I get to spend today working on the model
The director thanked me for my work
I’m going away tomorrow
and seeing my mentor
and a heap of my friends
including the athlete
who just got a new job designing book covers
I’ll get to spend time with the climber
I’ve been listening to lots of good music
I have a psychiatrist appointment tomorrow and this makes me feel looked after
and I know what I want to say and I hope it will be productive
I had lunch with a lovely friend yesterday
I might go to a lunchtime concert next week
There are leaves coming out on the trees
The new boots I bought are so comfortable
Everything feels good
I’m at a queer feminist burlesque theatre collective’s sketch cabaret performance and it’s wonderful and I love it.
Stepped on the train this morning to find everyone around me reading the metro with this headline on the front page.
“Sex with consent can still be rape”
NO the world needs to STOP hurting people I care about.
Especially when I don’t really know them well enough to reach out to them properly so I reach out anyway and feel uncomfortable about it.
But just I want it to be better
I don’t want them to be sad
I don’t want to be sad for them
Today went pretty well, I think. I enjoyed it and I didn’t feel out of my depth. Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign - check, check, check.
Gonna take a while to get used to the idea that this is what I do for a living, though.
Off to visit a site tomorrow. Should be fun.
I think - I think - I’ve finally made it off the venlafaxine. I think I’m through the worst of the withdrawal. I think it’s over.
I feel calm.
No more side-effects. No more withdrawal.
It’s over. I never have to take it ever again.
I’m so glad.
A Trans* Person’s Photo-a-Day Project
For the past three years, YouTuber iiGethii took a picture of herself everyday to document her transition from a man to a woman. This is the mind-blowing result.
My favourite thing is how as she transitions, she starts to look happier too. :3
