It's been a little heavy around here lately, so here is some fun stuff.  :)

I've been growing my hair (from about 1/2 inch, I used to have a buzz cut) for 10 months now, and my hair is finally long enough, around 5 1/2 to 6 inches.  Yay ponytail!!  The first time I tried making one, it took about 10 minutes.  I've practiced some and can make one in no time now.  I love that I can "put my hair up" now, even if it is a very teeny (and gray, which we'll get rid of) ponytail.  It's good for running.  It is super-cute.  I can't really wear it out yet because the rest of my hair is so long and I don't know what to do with the rest of it.  I have a hair appointment in a little over a month which I'm looking forward to.  I know she will need to take some off in spots but I hope I can still make a ponytail afterwards.  :)

And, tonight I got my first pedicure, at some mid-level place at the mall.  The last few times I've been out, my toes have really been getting on my nerves.  So tonight I got them done.  Now, I keep looking at my toes, smiling, and thinking, this is how my toes are *supposed* to look.  The color might be a little on the bright side for me, but whatever.  No one thought I was anything but a woman at the nail place... they gave me two of the requisite trashy magazines (who reads this crap?), tried to upsell me, there were other women on either side of me, who didn't give me a second look.

I didn't know if I was supposed to sit with my feet in the drying thing and wait for them to tell me to go, or what.  So I just sat that for what seemed like forever.  She told me that "you can go, ma'am," after about 20 minutes.  At which point I screwed up the polish on the side of my big toe.  You can't really tell, though.  I didn't know that they'd fix it if I asked so I didn't say anything.  I don't think I'll be going back to boring toes again.

One very cool thing about being trans is that you finally get to do all these things that you've wanted to do for your entire life.  Seems like almost every day lately there's something like that.  And still lots to look forward to!


yay girl!!! Gotta love the little things =) *hugs*

Popsicle toes?

I'm so happy for you, Faline, and jealous, too! I can grow a ponytail, but I can't grow anything on top :( Thanks for the update and the pics.


LOVE the color on your toes! You can't go to bright. Let me know when you need another....maybe I can join you:) And I am slightly jealous of your ponytail. I have been growing out my pixie cut for about nine months. I have been sporting a short bob until I can grow it out more! You look awesome!
