Make the most of your time with friends and family. It can be hard in your present circumstances and in the midst of the daily concerns of life to remember that change is constant and not everyone that is a part of your life now can always be there.

Just a couple of random shots from my camera roll from the past couple of weeks. I’m still glad I cut my hair shorter. I do not like to spend a ton of time on my hair in the morning and a bob cut certainly lends itself to that! Naturally curly hair is wonderful if you love your curls and don’t live in an area with lots of humidity. However, my area of Illinois is basically former swamp/marsh land. There is a reason I prefer to style my hair straight! 😁 #randomshots #girlslikeus #transvengers #blondehair #pinkpeekaboohighlights #peekaboohighlights #omgnoglasses #blowoutstyles #hairbob #bobhairstyles #bobhaircut #lgbt #shorthairstyles #shorthair #twitchaffiliate

It’s pushing 90 degrees out here so why not still wear a summer dress 💃 even though I’m not going anywhere tonight. 😊 I hope you all have a pleasant night! I won’t be streaming games tonight due to working but maybe tomorrow. #girlslikeus #girlswhocode #dotnetdev #omgnoglasses #pinkpeekaboohighlights #blondehair #blowoutstyles #hairbob #bobhaircut #transvengers #omgnoglasses #peekaboohighlights #twitchaffiliate (to follow on twitch, check profile link)

Thank you so much to @squeeekin for doing a complimentary correction on my pink highlights that did not take well last time and faded faster than expected. It looks amazing and I really needed the lift the salon appointment gave me today. A lot is suddenly going wrong around me and money is super tight due to car repairs and catching up on other bills. I have had to cancel a bunch of plans with friends and put off prescription refills the past week due to sudden financial constraints. I am no stranger to having to shift things around and still make ends meet somehow and pay for the things my kids need. My daughter and I did essentials only grocery shopping this week and I made some killer sloppy joes and sriracha chicken for meals (with lots of leftovers) so my kids still ate well when they were with me. I will get back ahead of everything financially soon. I work too hard not to. #stickwithit #igotthis #gottakeepsmiling #positivity #girlslikeus #transvengers #blondehair #pinkpeekaboohighlights #peekaboohighlights #girlswithglasses #lgbt #shorthairstyles #hairbob #bobhaircut #maybeishouldbuyalottoticket #twitchaffiliate twitch.tv/maidenariana

T-Shirt dress for the win on a hot day yesterday. My daughter and I scoured our local Meijer for the ingredients to make gluten free sloppy joes for our 4th of July dinner. All of us enjoyed it including my son who is a tough critic to please sometimes 😊👍My daughter and I then binge watched half of season 3 of stranger things.

Finally ventured out for margaritas, tacos, live music, sorbet and fun conversation with a friend last night. But, I ended up sleeping until noon today. I am not at 100% yet from being sick. I don’t cough much but when I do I sound like a wookie. 😅 I hope to finally stream again sometime this weekend for those that enjoy watching me play soccer in a speeding car. #ariisawookie #girlslikeus #transvengers #thatskirtthough #girlswithglasses #blondehair #shorthairstyles #lbgt #TransIsBeautiful #twitchaffiliate twitch.tv/maidenariana

These images are exactly 3 years apart. I do work hard to stay in shape and keep that feeling of renewed life I had in the photo on the left (despite the difficult circumstances and major stresses I had at the time). At the time (20 months into transition), I was trying to figure out how to buy the condo I live in now (so my kids didn’t have to sleep on the floor in my one bedroom apartment), while still in the middle of a divorce, and thinking any surgery was years away as my company insurance plan still excluded all #transhealthcare. So, I was paying out of pocket for what little I could do to maintain my transition. Yet, look at that smile I still sported on the left. I knew I would get to the day depicted on the right.. today. Maintaining a positive and forward looking outlook is so essential to staying healthy and mentally strong during transition. I am physically and mentally stronger than the version of me on the left. I am also better at relationships, friendships, and just at being happy with who I am. All of this took concerted effort over time, while maintaing a positive view of what I had already made it through. Your circumstances compared to where you are trying to go may seem impossible. Your outlook influences so much of your eventual success. You will get there! If you can’t see past the forest of challenges have friends lift you on their shoulders! ❤💛🧡💜💙💚 (p.s. I find it funny how I just recently decided to go back to this hair length after all this time!) #nofilter #transitiontuesday #transformationtuesday #positivity #girlslikeus #transvengers #transpositivity #glowup #thisiswhattranslookslike #TransIsBeautiful #pride #lgbt #changes #hairchange #brunettetoblonde

You would not know it from these pictures, but I’m still quite sick. The mornings are filled with coughing fits and it is difficult to sleep at night. During the day I feel okay though and the coughing subsides. I was able to get my hair styled by a friend at my favorite salon this weekend. It was a complimentary style for my birthday (it was the 18th). I love it! Nothing like a salon visit to boost my mood 😊 I’m hoping I wake up tomorrow feeling much better as it’s time to head back to the office. #girlslikeus #transvengers #blondehair #pinkpeekaboohighlights #shorthair #shorthairstyles #peekaboohighlights #girlswithglasses #lgbt #TransIsBeautiful #happypridemonth #happypride #twitchaffiliate twitch.tv/maidenariana

I have been sick most of the week. Rather than a nice extended vacation after my Vegas trip, I have been taking care of both of my kids and myself and sleeping as much as I can (all of us got sick). I also had to take my car in for emergency repairs yesterday. I had a brake hose fail and a stuck caliper which was locking up my front brakes that I had just paid to replace before my vacation 😥. The front left side brake pads completely melted! At least that part was under warranty but it still cost a ton to fix the rest. All together.. this has been a sucky week! I wish I could go back to the moment depicted in this photo. I was at a table at the Rock House surrounded by friends and celebrating 3 birthdays (one of which was my own). Regardless, I am finally feeling a little better and it is summer here finally. Time to pick myself up and start enjoying everything the Chicago area and its suburbs has during the summer! #clubwear #clubbing #girlslikeus #transvengers #blondehair #pinkpeekaboohighlights #peekaboohighlights #girlswithglasses #lgbt #happypridemonth #happypride #TransIsBeautiful #twitchaffiliate twitch.tv/maidenariana

Just after flying home Monday, I was exposed to a nose and throat infection that is going around and my weakened immune system after traveling was beaten by it 😥 I should be getting a prescription later today to battle it. There are pool parties to attend! There is streaming to do!

I have noticed in some comments and even mentions in posts on Insta from other people that there may be questions as to how we all were included in this trip. Let’s talk about how this group formed and what the transvengers hashtag that Mika made so popular is all about. 
We’re like any other group of friends that came together organically. I can only tell you from my perspective as to how the group unfolded. I interacted with @suddenlysamantha and @mikaelaville first. We connected over the fact that we three are #transparents. In a very short time, we were offering support to one another and also just chatted about things friends chat about. Sam and I became Facebook friends and eventually she also asked to interview me on one of her Instagram Live sessions. Mika and I conversed mostly through Instagram but then were also texting and joking around with each other a lot on other media. Mika often would stop by on my twitch streams and harass me and try to make me blush on camera😊 The other instagrammers in the group (@thecaseyblake and @itsemily247) became friends with either Mika or Sam and again over time got to know each other enough to want to get together. We’re not some exclusive club that was invited to Vegas based on some sort of ranking. We are a group of friends that found connections and support and those connections spilled into further connections until we all now consider each other friends. How else do you think we were comfortable sharing hotel rooms with each other? I for one do not share hotel rooms with strangers. My point is, we became long distance friends over time and wanted to meet each other & the results were great. I consider all of these amazing women close friends now and they know I’ve got their back and I know I can count on them. 
I encourage all of you to start your own groups and once you feel comfortable  and want to meet face to face in some city anywhere on the globe, set it up! Mika has said many times that the #transvengers hashtag is for all trans people, not just transwomen. Have a gathering! Use the hastag for your posts! This is not an exclusive club! Love you all!

At one point, I also chased down and found an older lady that left her rewards card at the machine next to me. She thanked me profusely, but I’m just one of the many friendly neighborhood #transvengers out there all over the globe working to make the world a better place 😉 Also.. this is my 500th Instagram post!

My birthday is the 18th, but this past Friday I was able to celebrate it with a large group of friends. Moving to a new town where I knew no one during the early days of my transition was very difficult. After spending the first 5 months of that time building my confidence to venture out and make connections.. I declared 2016 to be the year of Ari. I began going to meetups to find people I could connect with. 3+ years later and I am able to fill a cidery bar with an amazingly beautiful variety of friends that I could only imagine the day I moved so long ago. To my friends, I love you all! Thank you for the joy you all bring to this girl. To those afraid to venture into a scary new change.. you really can, just don’t do it alone for too long! #girlslikeus #transvengers #blondehair #pinkpeekaboohighlights #peekaboohighlights #girlswithglasses #lgbtq🌈 #happypridemonth🌈 #happypride🌈 #friendsforlife #friendship

Soooooo… I had the guts to do this.. happy birthday to me! My birthday is actually the 18th but last night was a party with a bunch of my friends. So I went for a new cut. (Party pics to be posted later today or in an insta story) It was time to keep my dyed hair more healthy, due to the long length I had I was experiencing some breakage and wanted a break from the maintenance for the summer. I also had been clipping it up lately at about the length I thought I wanted it. For a while, I tested this out both with it straightened and curly. This helped me to be sure I was ready for this cut. It is a stacked bob style and I am in love with the results! Thank you to @katia970 for the amazing cut and as always thanks to @squeeekin for the gorgeous highlights.

I don’t usually post #transformationtuesday posts because there are maybe less than 10 pictures in existence of me as an adult pre-transition without either my kids or other people in the photo. Even then, those that do exist have already been posted on my blog or website or in articles I have published such as those on HuffPost. I’ve decided to begin participating more often though by showing more of my early transition photos in comparison to now. On the left, I was 2 years into my transition and fresh off of yet another laser facial hair removal appointment. The right was from this past Sunday when I went to the #AuroraPrideParade. In both photos, I am feeling like myself, feeling strong, and like a general #badass for living as my #realself It gets better! #girlslikeus #transvengers #TransIsBeautiful #lgbtq🌈 #happypridemonth🌈 #happypride🌈 #transgender #wontbeerased #timeline #girlswithglasses #myhairtransitionedtoo

This is only the second year Aurora has held a pride parade. It became the first city besides Chicago in Illinois to host one. There were only around half a dozen protestors I saw there and their idiotic signs were blocked by people with umbrellas and their voices were drowned out. All in all, it was a wonderful event.

The work day is done and so is 95% of my planned #agile sprint work. Time to get out of these heels, tights, & dress and have a well earned short period of lounging about 😊 I’m all out of hard cider though 😳 Maybe I will run out and get some then stream some games later. #nofilter #girlslikeus #girlswhocode #girlswithglasses #careergirl #transvengers #twitchaffiliate twitch.tv/maidenariana

Thank you for 10K followers Instagram. That’s amazing. I’m humbled at the number of people that choose to follow my life. As I look at out at you all in this post, I have something I want to say. My social media presence on various platforms has always been about showing through my modest successes and growing happiness that #transgender people are human beings who can overcome #hatred #bigotry #stigma #socialmediaattacks #discrimination & more to just be themselves and soar and defy and live and love and win.

Many people that follow me must not carefully read my hashtags and once in a while send me shocked messages such as “wait, you’re trans? What does that mean for you exactly?” (an actual recent dm I recieved) #waityouaretrans

The stigma of being attracted to, wanting to date, or loving a transgender woman, causes fear and shame in far too many people (not just men). You are attracted to us. You should be. We are all pretty amazing people and over time we find our strength, confidence, and a power which emanates from us and translates to a beauty flowing from within that attracts people of all persuasions. I get it. Among several other gender classifications, I date transgender women too because we are the bomb. The difference is, I will proudly proclaim that I date transgender women and far too many people out there keep their attraction hidden, are wrongly ashamed of it and will even attack or kill to keep it a secret. There have been 3 deaths in 1 week.

Stop this nonsense. Accept your love of transgender people as normal because it is. Then, decide to protect us by no longer staying silent when friends or family throw out disgusting messages of #transhate or poke fun at a friend who hits on a girl that “might be trans.” Abolish the use of terms in your friend group that demean us or make us seem less than human. Tell your mates to cut it out and that you think it’s wrong to hate on people. It’s as simple as that, acknowledging we are people!

Working from home and ready for the work day to end.. I went to the dentist today and had no cavities so yay me! 😁 I hope you all had some good news today too. Btw I might stream tonight or tomorrow night. I have a bit of a headache from all the poking and prodding in my mouth by the dentist. We will see how I am feeling after dinner 🤔 #girlslikeus #girlswhocode #girlswithglasses #transvengers #careergirl #pinkpeekaboohighlights #blondehair #blowoutstyles #coraldress #twitchaffiliate twitch.tv/maidenariana

Someone recently said “more natural light photos!” Well.. here is one I took yesterday in front of CVS during the “golden hour” as the sun set. I earned those crows feet that this angle seems to highlight. 😄 #ageisjustanumber #girlslikeus #nofilter #summerdress #girlswithglasses #transvengers #wedontneednostinkinfilters #twitchaffiliate

This dress is still hands down one of my favorite #thriftstorefinds ever. It was time to bring it back out today since it’s 77 and sunny! Also two guys at the outdoor cafe were staring at me as I rounded this street corner. Is there something on my face? #girlslikeus #theladieshaveabettershot #pan #pinkpeekaboohighlights #girlswithglasses #blowoutstyles #blondehair #polkadotdress #flapperdress #transvengers

Seems like it’s a #minimalmakeup to #nomakeup kinda day for a lot of us insta peeps today. Count me in that group. It’s 74 and sunny and it’s a #workfromhome day. My kids are homeschooled, so I got them outside with me at lunchtime for a quick walk in the forest preserve. It was beautiful! My skin likes the tasty vitamin D 😋 #girlslikeus #girlswhocode #transvengers #twitchaffiliate #transparent twitch.tv/maidenariana #nofilter #tanktopwars

No filter.. unless you count the sunlight from my window and the fact that I’m finally getting that healthy glow back after being ill for over a week! Feeling wonderful right now. Working from home went great today. Helped my boss squash a hidden bug. Now picking up the kids in a bit to enjoy this weekend with them.
