So. Um. How about that art?
I tried. It kinda worked. Kinda.
Well, at least I tried.

I've felt like this so often in my life. To just want to drop and not have to keep trying. To let what happens, happen. Sometimes I just need that reset switch, to let it out, to make room for what is good inside me again.
There is no reason why you shouldn't be allowed to feel this way. There is no reason why you shouldn't do what you need to help yourself. If that means to cry, do it. If that means to sing, happy songs or sad songs, then sing them. If it means to dance, or paint, or draw, or write, then do it. Do what you need to do to be everything that you should be in this life. We only get this one pass around, and too many of us spend too much time on how others see us instead of how we can help ourselves.

Ok, I'm sorta rambling now. Sorry. I'll shut up.

I kinda like this page. Is that bad? Or good? I don't know. Regardless, well done.

I've been close to this a couple times at work this week.

I think the art is good, really does convey how she feels.

Ah, Yes ! The school uniform dilemma, yet again. Although there are probably other issues that are being triggered in Annie right now, too. The fade in and fade out colour technique was done with good effect.

Crap - this brings back so many memories. As if school wasn't bad enough... I confess I'd turned my back on all this stuff now I'm at Uni and passing. I feel guilty for doing that but these issues never really leave you. I've caught up with most of your excellent storyline and it's made me think hard about helping this age group after I graduate. I'd like to think so but it's going to mean finding all that old courage again and revisiting all those old fears.

@stickygirl: There is no guilt to passing and living in stealth. After all, isn't that what many trans people have wanted from the start, to just be normal?

On the same note, conquering old fears often means finishing with them and letting them go. Being able to forgot them and move on is one of the big points of therapy when it comes to childhood issue. It is admirable to help others so that they don't have go through the same things, but ultimately - you overcame. You have a freedom that means you don't have to feel that pain any more. There is no shame in being happy and moving on with your life.

Alternately, you could always sink ten hours a day into a transgender web comic, that seems to help some people.
