My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Sunday and a few hours at Starbucks.

It is Sunday afternoon and I have some free time well I have some studding to do but I can do that as Susan at Starbuck’s. I was ready a little before 3 and went down the street to the Starbuck’s by my house, they were packed the only open seats were a couple along the window at the counter in the corner or a couple at the big table which had two ladies at, one at each end on the same side so I put my computer in the middle across the table from them and then went and stood in line to get my drink. Now of course I immediately notice the one who was younger in her early 20’s at most had beautiful long red nails. They were both studding and of course I had studding to do but first I had to write my blog from Thursday when I went to the nail salon, I am actually 2 blogs behind, so we really didn’t pay any attention to each other. It was a little after 4 when the one lady left so it was just me and the girl with the pretty red nails. And as I said we really didn’t pay any attention to each other but it was nice to be sitting at a table with other people. She was reading on a tablet and taking notes, okay maybe I did pay a little attention.

Well she went up to get another drink and set her tablet down and I could see it was all about nails. Well she came back to the table and sat down and I don’t know why I asked her what she was studding and she told me she was in beauty school which I kind of already figured out. The next thing I know we were talking about her school and what she liked and didn’t like about beauty school. Any way she introduced herself, her name s Riley. For the next 30 minutes or so we would talk on and off, it was really nice but as all things soon she had to leave and I was back to just focusing on my studding. I finished up on what I had to do and then started working on my blog from Saturday night which was Saint Patrick’s Day. It was ab out 5:45 when my battery on my computer got really low so I moved to a table by the window where I could plug it in, yes by now there were only about 6 other people here. Starbuck’s really is a nice place to go for a few hours and get things done and the fact I can get Susan time just makes it that much better. I have no idea how many times I have gone to Starbuck’s as Susan but I have been going there since at least 2009.

I stayed at Starbuck’s till they closed at 6:30 before leaving. I went to Wendy’s for dinner before heading home.

A little more Susan time on Sunday

Well it is a beautiful warm sunny Sunday afternoon and I had some free time and needed to finish up on my Studying and what better way than as Susan. I was ready by 3 and wore my black skirt and my ankle boots, kind of a dressy casual look. I got to Starbucks about 3:30 and went in and sat at the big table as it was too bright and hot with the sun coming through the windows to sit right there.

I spent about an hour in a half doing my studying before taking a break to write my blog. It really was a relaxing afternoon and I got a lot done. I finished my blog a little after 6 and I had to figure out what to do as they close at 6:30 on Sundays. I needed gas so I drove to Costco and got gas and then it was what turned out to be my usual Sunday night dinner at Wendy’s. I have gone here several times as Susan and a few times as my male self and have never seen a male worker till tonight. There was one male working here tonight and the rest female.

Now they were busy and I had to stand in line, in front of me was a young couple with the most adorable little girl about 3. She was dancing around and smiling and talking with everyone in line and she kept coming back to me and looking at my boots. Any way soon it was there turn to order and the mom took the little girl over to a table and the man ordered a burger and a couple glasses of water and then pulled out a pocket full of change mostly pennies to try and pay for it. Now I felt bad so I gave him some money so he could order food for all of them. He thanked me and ordered more food. Now I felt really good it was the best money I have spent.

Now I spent about an hour here finishing my studying as I ate. It was a really good evening out. It really is nice being light later now. I got home a little after 8 and so ends my vacation. Tomorrow back to work. Thanks for reading and be sure to see what’s new in Susan’s life on my most recent blog.

Little Susan time on Thursday

The week has been busy, I had hoped to get out to dinner with my friends on Wednesday night but it was after 6 when I got home. So, I was setting my sights on Thursday as I have till midafternoon free. I got up Thursday morning and started getting ready. I was ready a little before 10. I was going to Lloyd Center for a little shopping. I got there about 10:15 and went in. Now Lloyd Center is not busy and has not been for a long time at least when I have gone. Nordstrom’s closed a while back and Sears will close on April 8th and there are a couple other stores that have signs in the windows everything must go so guessing they will also close plus there are several that are empty or closed. I am wondering if the mall will survive.

Any way my first stop was Sears to see what they had left which is not much but pretty much everything is 50% to 60% off I looked through the clothes and shoes and they are pretty well picked over at least in my size. From here it was out into the mall, I went into Suncoast, Macy’s, Ulta, Ross, Torrids, and a few others I can’t remember the names of. It really was more about just being out for a while. I even spent a little time in Barnes & Noble which is a good place to pass time. It was a little after 12 when I left Lloyd Center.

Now as I said I don’t have a lot of time today as I have to be someplace at 4 as my male self so I decided to get closer to home so I don’t get caught in rush hour traffic later. I decided I would go to Starbucks for a while and I decided to try a new one, turns out there is one right next to the Wendy’s I have been going to so that was where I would go.

I got there about 12:30 and went in, wow they were really busy and there was only 1 table open right by the door, and there were 3 people in line so I set my stuff down on the table and went and ordered my drink. There were also a lot of young kids who came in but they all got drinks to go. There was also a draft every time the door opened probably why this was the last table open, glad I got a hot chocolate today. I stayed here till 2:30 before heading home.

Thanks for reading and be sure to see what new in my life on my most recent blog.

Monday and a few hours out

Monday morning and I got up and was thinking what I should do. Now I do need to go to Home Depot or Lowes as my garbage disposal quit working a while ago and that is on my to-do list for this week. I also need to go to Walmart today and pick some things up for someone else. I had planned on getting the garbage disposal Tuesday but as Lowes is right by the Walmart I am going to I decided to go as Susan and get my garbage disposal. Now I have gone to home depot a couple times as Susan but it is a store that are mostly men shopping there especially on a weekday. I got ready and was on my way a little before 10

I got to Lowes, parked and went in and sure enough it was mostly men there shopping. Don’t get me wrong woman can and do shop here but it really is more men. Now I knew what I wanted but I did take time and walk around and look at other things and yes, I did get a few second looks from some of the men but nothing was said so that was good. I did see a hand full of woman in getting things so I wasn’t the only female here but we were really in the minority. I finally made it over to the plumbing section and found what I was looking for. With my purchase in hand I headed for the checkout and to my surprise there were no lines. I got paid and was on my way.

Next stop was Walmart which is just up the street. They also were not as busy as I expected but then it is a Monday morning. I did take time to check out their makeup section as I really love looking at makeup. Then I did the shopping I needed to do. After I left here I made a quick stop at Target before heading back towards home. I wasn’t ready to go home though as it was only about 12:30 and I have till 2 or so before I have to be home and change back from Susan. I decided to go to Starbucks but instead of the one by my house I wanted to try a new one that have never gone to before. There is one just down the street from the one I go to on Mill Plain so that was where I was going.

I was trying to think of all the Starbucks I have gone to over the years in Vancouver & Portland, I am guessing I have been to at least 12 in Vancouver and probably that many or more in Portland. Starbucks really is a good place to go as most people there are by themselves or very small groups and they are usually doing something, reading, school work, on a computer or cell phone and are busy with what they are doing. It is also a good mix of people and mostly people coming and going. The one I went to is at 12101 SE Mill Plain Blvd Vancouver, WA 98684. It is a smaller one inside but it was not very busy so there was no problem getting a table. I got here just before 1 and spent about an hour here before heading home.

Some quiet time at Starbucks Sunday Night.

As I said I am actually on vacation this week although I have a lot of stuff I have to get done so won’t be as much Susan time as last vacation. Any way I had a few hours Sunday afternoon and evening and so yes it was off to Starbucks. I wanted to write my blog from Saturday night at the Escape and also catch up on e-mails and just play on my computer which yes, I could do at home just as easy but there is just something I can’t explain about being out as Susan. Even though when I am out at Starbucks as Susan I am not even thinking about how I am dressed which is a hard thing to explain. I am just out as myself like everyone else.

I got to Starbucks a little after 4 so I had a little over 2 hours as they close at 6:30 on Sunday’s. They were a little busy as the only open seats were the sofa chairs which I am not a fan of as there is no table for my computer and a couple counter seats along the window in the back corner or the big table which seats 8 and there were 2 people at one end so that was where I sat at the other end. Now I figured one of the 5 small tables along the window would open up and I could move there as I do like sitting by the window.

I went up to order my drink and the girls behind the counter welcomed me by name and asked if I wanted my hot chocolate which today I didn’t as I went for the sweetened green ice tea. These are my two drinks I get here by the way, hot chocolate when it is cold or I am cold and green tea the other times as I feel it is a little healthier and far less calories as I do want to lose some weight by Diva Las Vegas and for sure by our cruise in October. In case you don’t know I have a bad sweet tooth, actually I think all my teeth are sweet teeth.

Now as I said they were busy and it was a constant stream of people coming in and getting drinks and a family took the sofa seats so all that was open were a couple seats in the middle of the table I was at and a couple at the counter in the back corner. It really was one of the busier days I have seen here as everyone stayed and the other tables never opened at least not till about 6:15 when a few people left, as there were only a few minutes till they closed I saw no reason to move.

I got most of what I wanted to do done here before 6:30 when they closed. Now they have never told me I had to leave as a matter of fact several times they have said I could stay a little while they cleaned up which is really nice but I feel a little strange doing that so I try to finish up as close to closing as I can but sometimes I run a little late. Tonight, I finished up just before 6:30 so as I was leaving both the workers said goodbye to me by name and told me to have a good evening.

I drove down to Costco to get gas as I have figured out how to avoid the lines there. The store closes at 6 on Sunday but the gas station part stays open till 7. The key is to get there just before closing and you can pull right up to the pump. After getting gas I decided to get something to eat as I haven’t eaten since lunch. I drove to Wendy’s and went in to eat. Now this Wendy’s is away from where I live but that was not the reason I went to this one.

I have gone here at least 4 times before as Susan and a couple times as my male self but what is interesting in all those visits I have never seen a male employee, it has always been an all-female crew working here so I was wondering if that is all they have for employees. I got there about 7 and went in and sure enough all the workers were female. I ordered my burger meal and went and sat at a table where I could watch the big TV above a fire place which had a basketball game on. I watched a little of the game while I ate. It was kind of relaxing and not your normal fast food atmosphere, I also saw a sign in the window that they have free wi-fi.

I got home just a little after 8. Now I have to figure out what I will be doing this week. Monday, I have a few hours in the morning to early afternoon free so I will probably do something then. Tuesday I will have no chance for Susan. Wednesday maybe some time again in the morning and early afternoon. Thursday and Friday, I will have more time, and Saturday probably late afternoon and evening. But all this can change so we will just see what the week presents.

Thanks for reading and be sure to see what’s new for Susan on my most recent blog.

Thursday night trip to the nail salon

Okay first I did get out for a few hours last Sunday evening to Starbucks to study. I spent about 3 hours at the Starbucks by my house, no computer just my books. Any way on to today. I have been going to the Nail salon on Fridays the last few times but this week I would not be able to get there till probably next Tuesday which was my plan as my nails still looked good. Well till Tuesday night. I seem to have hit my nails just right and broke off a piece of the acrylic. funny as I didn’t break the nail just some acrylic. I was able to fix with some OPI nail envy which is a nail strengthener and goes on a little thick. It kind of covered the sharp edges but just didn’t look right so I decided I needed to go get it fixed. I got home late about 4:30 and called Dream Nails to see if Anna could fit me in, she always manages as I really think most people just show up and don’t call for an appointment. Any way I had a 5:30 appointment so I had 1 hour to get ready and get there, only a couple minute drive so I would be.

I got there just before 5:30 and only had to wait a couple minutes for her to finish with someone else. I really do like my trips to the nail salon as it is so relaxing. Anna started on my nails and yes, she had to remove the acrylic on the nail I broke and redo it. She did a wonderful job as always. They were a little busy as there was a young girl sitting next to me just finishing up on her nails and 3 woman getting pedicures. Any way about 6:20 I once again had beautiful nails although shorter. Now I am already thinking about Diva Las Vegas which is coming up fast. 6 weeks from today I will once again be here at the nails salon to get my acrylic nails for the trip 11 days and yes, they will be longer and a pretty color.

After the nail salon I went across the street to Starbucks till 8 to work on my blog and do a little studding (very little). It is nice as I have been coming here so regular most of the workers know me by name and I am getting to know some of their names. I walked in and Alan the young man working tonight welcomed me by name and asked if I wanted my usual hot chocolate which I did. It really makes you feel welcome when this happens. I know it is all about customer service but it still feels good. It is funny as I never went to a Starbucks before the first time I did as Susan and even still I think I have only been there 3 or 4 times when I am not Susan, kind of my girl thing to do. But I like coming here so much last year I bought stock in Starbucks.

It was about 8 when I left and drove over to Burger King as I was hungry, I went through the drive through and then went home. Again, a funny side note about 15 to 20 years ago a big night out for me was to take a late-night drive, after 11pm and then if I could work up my courage a quick trip through burger kings drive through.

Not sure if I will make it out this weekend as I have family stuff to do but next week I am once again on vacation and hope to get out several times. I really can’t explain why I like going out as Susan but I do.

Thanks for reading and be sure and see what I am up to on my most recent blog.

Some study time as Susan

Okay I taking a few classes for work kind of and as such I have a lot of reading to do, a book in two weeks and reading is not a favorite thing for me to do so I really need to focus and of course that is where Starbucks comes in. I went to Starbucks last Sunday evening for about 3 hours to read and the reason I am writing it now is I didn’t take my computer as I knew that would distract me. Any way the class goes 3 weeks a couple nights a week and a couple Saturdays. It was a little strange to go there without my computer as that is something I have never done before but it was fine and I did get almost all the reading done for my first class.

Well now it is Friday night and I need to do some more studding as from the classes this week we will probably only cover half the book in class and yet the test will be on all of it. So that means Starbucks again tonight. I am taking my computer though as I will need to make some notes I will need to take and of course I need to write up some stuff for class. I was ready a little before 5 and was on my way. I went to the Starbucks just down the street from my house which is open till 8 so I figured I would start with that and see how far I get. They were about average for how busy they were so I had no problem finding a table and working.

Well I actually only stayed here till about 6:30 as I saw I was going to need way more time and I knew the Starbucks on Mill Plain is open till midnight so I left and headed up there. I got there about 7 and they were a little busier but also a bigger Starbucks. I was able to get a table away from the window to do my work which included a workbook as I went through the chapters. It was not really how I wanted to spend a Friday night but at least I got to do it as Susan and yes, I got way more down than I would have at home. I got through 6 chapters before I was having trouble focusing, after all I have been working on this since 5 and it was just before 11 when I decided that was enough for tonight. I will try and finish it tomorrow.

Now it was time to het out my computer and just have some fun on the internet. Of course, it would only be a short while as they close at midnight but I won’t make it that late as I have a busy day tomorrow. I have some things I have to do in the morning, class from 11 to 3 and then Susan time tomorrow night. Now the whole time I was here doing my class work I really didn’t think about how I was dressed I was just doing my work a great feeling. Well I picked the right time to stop as they now close at 11. I was only able to spend a little time on my computer before they started closing up. I got home about 11:15 but it was a fun night.

Thanks for reading and be sure and keep up with what’s new on my most recent blog.

Sunday afternoon and the end of my vacation.

It is Sunday afternoon and my vacation officially ends and I am back at work tomorrow. Now the big questions are my nails, they look great and I have been wearing this same color polish wedding dress for several months now so that is not my concern it is the length. When I got them done for my vacation on February 2nd I didn’t have the shorten them so it has in fact been almost 4 weeks since they were shortened and even then they were a little long for a man as I got them done on January 17. If I don’t file them down myself and wait till my next nails salon visit which will be this coming Friday they will be pretty long and that will draw attention. Right now, that is my plan though.

Any way I really didn’t have plans for today as I had things I had to do but I got done early except for some work I had to do on the computer. Well you guessed it Starbucks as Susan won out. Now I find if I stay at home to do work I get side tracked to easy as there are too many distractions (TV). I have found I can actually take an hour to get ready and drive to Starbucks and still get more done then if I sit at home. Now I have been asked many times what I do for work that I can go to Starbucks as Susan and work, well without going into details to much it does not have to do with my regular job but other things I am involved with.

It was earlier than normal when I started getting ready so I was on my way by 2:30 so I had 4 hours I could be at the Starbucks by where I live as they are open till 6:30 on Sunday evenings. I got there and parked and went in, they were actually busy for a Sunday afternoon. I ordered my drink and then put my computer down on the big long table as all the other tables were taken and there were 2 other people at this table. I would eventually have to move to another table as my computer battery is at half as I forgot to plug it in last night so I am good for about 2 hours maybe.

I started my work and as I said it is way easier to focus on it here. I had been here about a half hour when one of the tables next to the window opened up so I moved over and plugged my computer in. I kept working and till about 4 when I took a break and wrote my blog from last nights outing at the Escape. Okay yes there are also distractions here at Starbucks too but I did work for 1 ½ hours straight. I finished my blog a little after 5 and it was right back to work as I still have some to do. I was all finished by 5:30 and n ow I am just going to play around on my computer for a little while till they close and then grab something to eat before going home.

People ask me why I go to Starbucks so much and I really have no answer for them. When I am here I am not really focused on anyone else, I do notice people but just as I would anyplace I go no matter how I am dressed. I am not really even thinking about how I am dressed or that I am out as Susan. I am just out being myself. There is something about being able to go out as Susan and just be another person out. Now I will say I have gone to many different Starbucks and never had a problem and always been treated wonderful so it is kind of a safe place to go as most people here are to busy with what they are doing or they are in and out that they don’t even notice you or if they do I didn’t notice them although I am sure I have gotten some looks I just didn’t notice. As a matter of fact, today 3 women as they went by said hi to me which is nice.

I stayed here till about 6:30 before going to Costco for gas and then a quick trip to Wendy’s for dinner. Now I did go in and eat there. The funny thing was it was an all-female crew working. It was a relaxing afternoon and evening and I got a lot done. Here are a couple pictures of my nails as they are now. They are a little long but cute.

Thanks for reading my blogs and keeping up with my life as Susan, be sure and check out my most recent blog.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Wednesday out and dinner with my friends.

I had things to take care of today at home so it was almost 11 before I started getting ready. Now I know Cassandra usually goes out a little early on Wednesdays before dinner so I texted her to see when she would be out so we could meet up. She texted me back she hoped to be ready by 2:30 so that would be fun to meet up with her. Now I had to figure out how to do my makeup for the day. You see for going out to dinner with my friends I really wanted red lips but that is a bit much for the day, well you guessed it the red lipstick won. Now I did wear one of my black skirts with a grey top and my black boots with heels as I think this is really a classy work to evening look. It was 12:30 before I was ready to leave. I had about 2 hours give or take a little before Cassandra would be ready and with the red lipstick really didn’t want to go shopping. I decided to go to the Starbucks by my house, I have been to this Starbucks in the morning, late afternoon and evening but I don’t think I have ever been to this one at this time of day.

I left and headed for Starbuck, at the end of the street one of my neighbors a few houses down came around the corner in his car and with cars parked either side of the street there was only room for 1 car to go so I had to wait for him. Now I do know him by name and talk with him occasionally when we are getting our mail at the same time. As he went by he waved to me and I just waved back. I don’t know if he knows about this part of my life or not I am not sure he even really saw me or was just waving at the car but if he did look he saw long hair and red lips on the person driving. Now 1 of my neighbors knows for sure and I can not be sure if she has told anyone and with as often as I go out during the day I know other neighbors have seen at least a woman driving my car so I have to believe some if not all of them know something.

I got to Starbucks about 12:40 and again they were busy, 4 people waiting for their drinks and 3 in front of me to order and most of the tables taken. As I was standing there in line with 3 other woman the young man behind the counter looked at me and said hi Susan be right with you. Anyway, soon it was my turn and I ordered my drink, the young man complimented me on my nails which I so love so I thanked him. Now as I said they were pretty busy for a midafternoon, there were a couple seats at the counter around the corner, half the long table that seats 10 and 1 small table next to the window. I went over and put my computer on the small table and went and stood with the others waiting for our drinks. Now it was probably 75% woman here but it still amazed me bow busy they were in the midafternoon. It was also a good idea to put my computer on the table as several of the people in front of me went and sat either at the big table or the counter

I sat down and caught u on some e-mails and did a little work and just played on the internet for a while. It was just a little after 2:30 when Cassandra texted me and said she was leaving, we were going to meet at the 2nd Ave Sports bar (use to be Fox & Hounds) and spend a few hours there before dinner as we were eating at Hobo’s right around the corner. I got downtown and found the perfect parking spot right between the two of them but Cassandra texted me that they were closed. We decided to go to McMenamins Ringlers Pub instead, we have gone here for dinner a few times and it really big and very friendly. We got there and parked just a half block away. I paid for street parking but the only problem was it only had 2-hour parking and it was just a little after 3 so we would be here for at least 3+ hours which would mean remembering to come back out and pay again.

We both went inside and got a table and both set up our computers, Cassandra was doing a chatroom which she loves to do, she even turned her cam a couple times so the people could see me. I did some more work and caught up on the news mostly business news as the rest seems to be so negative. We also talked on and off. Seems Cassandra does this a lot on Wednesdays. She will get out sometimes as early as 1 and go someplace and do her chat room for a few hours before meeting the group for dinner. I really don’t understand the draw of a chatroom but then I am sure people think the same about my getting dressed as Susan just to go sit at a Starbucks for a few hours. Cassandra and I talked about it for a while and we have no answers. Some have told me I do it just so I can be watched or seen and I don’t know if that is true or not. I do know when I am out I am really not focused on how I am dressed I am just me and for that matter I am really not paying attention to them and if they are looking at me. I really think for me it is more just being able to do what any other woman does and be accepted for that.

Now we did order drinks and their pretzel appetizer, By the way as I always say drinks I just thought I would ad a note here, we both ordered pop as neither one of us drinks alcohol, actually quite a few of our groups member don’t drink alcohol so it is pretty strange the we go to so many bars. I have often told people if you told one of my male friends who doesn’t know about my dressing that you saw me in a bar dressed as a woman I honestly think they would be more shocked that you saw me in a bar. By the way the pretzel appetizer is incredible, warm salted pretzel sticks with melted cheese to dip them in.

We stayed here till 6:30 and yes, we both remembered to go out and pay for parking again. Then we drove over to Hobo’s. They were not at all busy so we had our pick of tables. We sat down and it wasn’t long and Melissa and Barb showed up. It was just the 4 of us for the evening. We all talked before ordering dinner, I had the chicken Parmesan which is really good. We had a wonderful dinner and great conversation. The night went by so fast, we finished and paid our bills. I was shocked it was almost 10 when we left, it did not seem like we had been here almost 3 hours. It really is fun to be out with my friends.

Tomorrow I have some me time as I will be out by myself and Friday I am meeting Mikaela for some shopping which will be so much fun. It will give us a chance to talk and catch up as she goes out mostly in Salem so I haven’t seen her for probably a year or more.

Thanks for reading and keep up with what’s new in Susan’s life on my most recent blog.

Sunday evening kind of quiet

Okay it is Sunday evening afternoon and I wanted to go out again for a little while. After cleaning up and changing I was ready. Of course, I am wearing the new lipstick I bought, turns out when I bought it I was worried it would be too light and not real noticeable, its darker than I thought. My first stop was the Starbucks by my house to write my blog from this morning. It looked kind of a light brown color that would be a natural day color but now that it is on kind of looks like it has a little copper color to it. Still deciding what I think as in certain light it really looks nice but in other light not so good. Here are a couple pictures of me at Starbucks so you can judge for yourself.

I got to Starbucks about 3:30 and they were really slow, just 2 other people here and not many came in while I was here. Guess everyone is home watching the Super Bowl. As I said I am not a football fan so I would not be watching it even if I were at home. Now I spent a couple hours here before leaving and going back to Cascade station for a little shopping well more looking then shopping. It is just fun to walk through the stores and look at things. Now I did go back to the same Target I was at earlier as I wanted an eye shadow. For the Smokey eye look I have been doing I have been using an old white eye shadow for the inside corners to brighten them up. I am almost out of it and besides it really should be a silver color for the look I want. I have been making do with what I had while I got better at doing the Smokey eye look. I found what I was looking for just a single color in silver and only $2.99 from Maybelline and I will try it tomorrow.

From here I went over to the main shopping area and started with DSW shoes just to look around, also went into Ross, Staples, Bath & Body works, Nordstrom Rack, Ulta, and last Best Buy. It was a relaxing evening just walking through the stores, the only bad part was being Sunday the stores closed at 8 pm so it was kind of a short night although there is a Star bucks here I have gone to many times before that is open till 9 so that was my last stop, same one I was at earlier and one of the ladies was still there from earlier she must be working a long day. I worked on this blog till they closed, the one cool thing about Star bucks is they don’t usually kick you out right as they close as they have cleanup work to do and they will let you sit there for a while so it was about 9:20 when I left.

On the way home, I made a quick stop at Fred Meyer to pick up some groceries and then a quick run through Wendy’s drive through before going home. Now I know this probably sounds pretty boring but you have to stop and think about it. 10 years ago, it took all I could do just to go out after dark to a gay bar, 15 years ago it was a late-night drive and maybe Burger Kings drive through and before that I couldn’t even imagine leaving my home. To just be able and go out and do every day things that all woman can do is really amazing. It shows how far not only I have come but the community in general. 20 years ago, you could have never convinced me I would be going anyplace as Susan.

Thanks for reading and be sure to see what’s new with Susan on my most recent blog.
