I'm not sure I ever talked about this here, but a while back I released a Chrome extension to make reading long-form web content easier. It's called Longbox and you should give it a try: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/longbox/odpmanddncjogmkejdjihcdpgbcdldij
hey so, not being out and full time past end of February is unlikely to be an option.
I do not foresee losing my contracts and income as a result, but it’s not guaranteed enough for me to feel safe
if i’m going to risk the collapse of everything I have built in order to be me, I’d like to have a backup plan.
is anyone aware of potential CONTRACT sysadmin/telecom work that’s likely to crop up?
Can add to current client list or wait
I am a registered LLC, have résumé et al.

Dating Show more
Had my first lunch date with someone I met via dating app (Bumble, fwiw). It went pretty well I think? She wants to do a second date, so that's something?
Also, I'm about 99% sure she doesn't know I'm trans, which is going to take some getting used to.
Obviously if this progresses I'll tell her at some point, but I see no reason to rush it. I kind of like just being another divorced lesbian with cool hair.
Relationship angst Show more
So this morning my ex, who wanted a divorce because she didn't think she could be attracted to me as a woman, came over to tell me she's started dating an old college roommate. Who is a hella cool butch lesbian.
Don't get me wrong, I love my ex like a sister and am happy for her, but it just doubles down on my feelings of being forever alone. 😞
GRS stuff Show more
Today I had my 4 week post-op with my regular doctor. I related my concerns w/ her about my torn inner labia (owww), so she took a look and confirmed that it's filling in with granulation tissue. In this case, she says, that's a good thing and means the gap will eventually (in a few months) heal up. She sees a lot of trans patients so I trust her opinion; it's nice to have reassurance from someone who's seen it in person (cell photos texted to a busy surgeon aren't as effective)
Clock in my doctor's exam room is stuck on 9:49:34, and the second hand just keeps bouncing and going nowhere. If that's not a metaphor for how time moves on a doctor's office, I don't know what is. https://lgbt.io/media/r0kHF0xFb2apzBLVY_g
