After my busy week, I was able to enjoy a pool party yesterday (and some Vegas Bombs). Then after rising the chemicals from my hair, I fell asleep on my chaise lounge. I woke up and my hair said CURLY GIRL. ๐Ÿ˜Š today I visited my parents, sister, and my niece. My heart feels full after missing being in my childhood home for such a long period of time. I needed this. Oh! My Dad sent me home with a factory sealed package of rainbow colored high density 3.5 floppies be found in his basement. He knows I will use them with my retro PC projects. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’šโค๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’› #nightgownwars #retronerdgirl #maidenariana #devilishangel๐Ÿ‘น๐Ÿ‘ผ #decadeofari #ringlightselfie #hazeleyes #naturalcurls #fuschiagirl #pinkhighlights #curlyhair #blondegirllife #transvengers #lgbt #twitchaffiliate #ihaveapatreon #linksinprofile

I busted my tushie this week. I killed it all week with my day job. On side biz stuff, I fixed several WordPress sites that broke due to underlying upgrades. I now have two new products I’ve created that I’m going to show you all this weekend. I also have revamped my Android application so it is just about ready to go on the Play store. Finally, I’ve fixed the retro pentium 200 pc I want to use for my wing commander retro stream coming up on the 31st. Not streaming as often has been paying dividends in my productivity but maybe I’ve also been drinking extra coffee โ˜• ๐Ÿ˜† What to do next? #retronerdgirl #retrodress #modstyle #womenwhocode #womenintech #coffeebeforeanything #decadeofari #maidenariana #hazeleyes #blondegirllife #fuschiagirl #curlyhair #naturalcurls #curlyfuschiablonde #lgbt #transvengers #twitchaffiliate #ihaveapatreon #linksinprofile

Curly, straight, fuschia, blonde, brunette, stylish, tall, athletic, demure, strong, sweet, kind, empathic, compassionate, cute, brilliant, beautiful, sexy, free, happy, fun, alive..

Of all the things that have been used to describe me by other people in my dms and comments, the messages that matter most to me are from people who say I’ve made an impact for them by being visible and just being me.

I know lots of people get a sour taste from social media. It comes and goes for me and I take breaks from posting and don’t worry about posting daily etc. I view it as a space that can simply be fun for sharing joy with other people while also being an extremely important outlet & source of much needed inspiration and solidarity with others who are like you.

The first time I ever posted publicly on social media was on tumblr during the darkest days of my life before transitioning. It truly was stretching my hand out and upwards from a dark pit of despair and loneliness. I was in a dangerous place at the time.

All I can say now is thank you to every single supportive person that has ever bothered to acknowledge my existence and especially those who outright supported and encouraged me to continue to be me.

If you feel isolated, unseen, unheard, and think your experience and life do not matter.. you are wrong. You matter. You are alive. Stay alive and dare to be everything you know you can be. Apologize to no one for it.
Grow. Strive. Persevere.

You are your own worst critic and worst obstacle.

I know, I’ve been there.
