    Hello Ladies - Ms Briana Andromeda Purcell - the one and only Galaxy Girl here - and this is on my business card too - plus that is my real and legal name - did so last year in August - can you believe it?! Sorry have not had time to post on updates - life has been one grand and great things after another. I went out with friends 2-3 times per month last year and wore 8 different dresses, went and spent the night at a friend's home, spent Thanksgiving and Christmas with 3 different friends and their families last year, visited more restaurants than I can count, and wore a skirt, as these are my favorite attire 6 or 7 days a week for the last 2 years and counting. Not only did I change my name legally in court but not it is on every imaginable document - soc sec, driver's license ( and YES it ways I am a girl - finally ), bank account, all other electronic systems out there - ebay and such, plus you can find me on facebook as my name too.  I have host of friends from here at Gender Society and interestingly from high school - many of whom are my gal pals and we take many of these adventures I mention and all noted here are on facebook and chat it up regularly. I walk into my local grocery store and a cashier and friend calls out my name across the store, I go to the pharmacist and my prescriptions are in my name, same is true of my bank, and even a local restaurant I frequent I am quite the regular and am very well received. Further not only did I have an interview and hit the ball out of the galaxy as myself and use my published book as my resume, I am my life's passion - teaching - as a professor at a local college and teach what I love Physics and Astronomy - currently - as of this writing I am in the midst of a semester in Astronomy and loving it!!! Imagine being yourself morning noon and night, the moment you walk onto the porch and go in any direction - your name is known and people greet you as you and you go to work and you are you in the past, the present, and the future since anyone who meet you - you are you always as you you in your heat, mind, and soul. This is my life now. I cannot relate the elation, joy, and pure bliss of being - be it a sunny or rainy day - I am me and all is well. nothing is more empowering or uplifting as being whole and happy in life. Being in front of the class long ago I was not me yet and always felt off and unbalanced - now out, fully me and teaching what I love I feel the depth of my being and soul and the whole of the topics that I guide the young people into and through.  There are many new and other adventures in life ahead of course and not all things are perfect - but I come to see the nature of my being - always in motion, a dynamic force - always for good and positivity - and expressing joy. I smile all the time and will shed a few tears of joy - did so 4 times last week driving to and from my career not believing the beauty of my life. I have grown in more dimensions than I can fully relate and only use words each of which needs time over coffee for full range of explanation - I have grown, evolved, and blossomed in terms of body, mind, socially, emotionally, and spiritually to become the whole, caring, creative, intelligent, kind, beautiful and brilliant woman I am. That is the one thing I did not expect - physical changes aside as they were hoped for and  somewhat expected in all this, it is the blossoming of my whole being - the total emergence of the girl I have been all along since childhood inside along so many other personal dimensions.  I am ever at work in artistic ways - took a couple of fun glass classes and wish to do that as an art form plus learn crocheting and/or knitting, am at work on the rewrite of my book to add my name and my voice to it plus pictures finally, along with exploring my sci-fi story series long ago which secretly had me and now there are a new flourish of ideas growing in me once again, plus a bio story as well in the works. Plus being the teacher I am and crafting all sorts of ideas for the classroom. May consider other art forms too, like tiles and such. Even made a cute 'lunchbox' adorned with young-minded frivality that is cute and fun. I am incredibly far more social than I ever was decades ago, even friends I had as a child who are my gal pals now, commented as such. I thank my friends daily in my thoughts and prayers as they are the ones who helped my open all  of these new doors and explore new pathways in the last 3 years plus seeing my doctor and being on hormones and such in that time. Mind you despite the speed of these times I love the energy and flow but this was no where near my life even as little as 3 years ago. I came out a scant 8 years back and up to 3 years ago the best I could do was on occasion race out the door to the local store run in buy something and come home and not really much if anything else. Besides myself sitting on my bed in a skirt was and still is my cat who knew my secret. I will share other elements so this piece will evolve a bit - just jotting the initial frame at the time plus below are some selected photos over time as well - such as me in a dress a friend measured me for in the first time into my women's bathroom in a public place that she bought for me and I used in my court day for my name and she drove me there and such : Love you all, may your dreams become the story of truth and reality for you in your journey : Ms Briana Andromeda Purcell the one and only Galaxy Girl

    Hi, I'll be brief. I have been shaving, around my groin and upper legs, in unseen locations. There is absolute pleasure in the smoothness of skin, which becomes sensual when even relatively fine body hair is removed.  It's difficult to draw a line in the lather. I'd like to shave entirely, and recall a former member here stating that all body hair below the eyebrows 'Should go'. But it's always too difficult to stop isn't it, all of this. The hair on my head isn't long enough, ears are un-pierced, nails are too short. Mannerisms are restrained, emotions contained. There will be point when I trip up, when I think the disguise remains stronger than it is, and when the evidence is laid bare. At the moment, I just have the bare-faced cheek, and upper legs.

    Well Its December and  another Winter in  Northern Ontario  ,Canada. December has  come once again and  it  seams like every years at this  time  of  year I  hear of a "Death" or  passing  of  someone . I  ve  lost many in this  month since 2012  .  First it  was  my  Father then last  year my  Mother and a  family friend who  was  like an uncle to  me since  childhood  and  Now  another . I  loved Christmas growing up because  I  loved having  family  and  friends around but now all that is  gone . it  has  become very  difficult as  of  late hearing Christmas  music on the  radio  or in a  Mall  or  store . It  has  been hard at  times  for me to stomach all this because of  all this  sadness .  Its  almost a  year since  my  Mother 's passing and  almost everyday has  been a struggle . My  life has  been upside down since  that  night and  has  forever changed .  I  know  live alone but it  has  not stopped  me from  dressing in  fact I  spend more  time as  "Karen" at  home then I used  too. I  have been pushing  myself to  be  "out" more but still not  yet  in  full public . I  have  many times  worn a  "bra" under  my  T  shirts but without  forms . I  have on a  few occasions gone  on a  "  day  trip" Fully  dressed  and it  felt  "Great " . I  've  even met this "Online Friend " in  person  Fully  dressed and  make up  at  her  place and with  other  strangers around . It  was  abit  nerve racking at  first but  I  later  found  out that  I  looked "Passable " and  they  thought I  was  "Real " . So  For  now I  'm  just  hoping to  get  thru another month and perhaps without anymore problems  or  "Death  " . There is a  brighter side to  my  story and  that  is I  have a  "GG"  Girl friend  who  soon  will be  my  Wife " .  We  are  planning to "Marry" sometime in the  New  Year and  I 'am looking forwards to it .  So  I  hope that  All  my  friends and  Sisters here have a  Great  "Christmas and  Happy New Year "  Wow !   2020  Here  I  come  !!

    Hello Ladies - News from the one and only Galaxy Girl, aka Briana Andromeda Purcell. I have shared many new ideas on the last few blogs so if you wish scan them a bit to pick up on many new fronts and new prospects for me, but the latest news is purely cosmic in scale I must confess. Here I am at these times some months from the last entry and still the development is continuing and growing.  I have applied to now less than 20+ jobs as myself - 5 universities and as many as 4 posts in a given university, plus several libraries and a world-renowned museum to  be a hostess as well.  I have been out no less than 20+ times with friends, spent time at friend's homes and had a great salmon grilled meal. Many super restaurants with the best of friends.  Note I am me 24-7, wear skirts typically 6 out of 7 days a week ( I do have to use some cute jeans to clean up the messes in though ) and no less than 8 dresses to many of these outings. I attended to glass making classes, one with a friend for her birthday and one I went to on my own due to my enjoyment of this. I made a gorgeous flower and a galaxy ball paperweight.  Well more really cosmic news : Hold on to your hats - it is awesome : First I have been to court and the name I noted, Briana Andromeda Purcell is my real and legal name permanently in all ways, places, and things. I now have my social security card, my driver's license, and a bank account with my name on each and every one - everyone loves my new ID - cute photo.  Imagine when you first walk into the bank and fill out the deposit or withdrawal form and use your real name! That was sooo sweet. In each and every place I am indeed me. At the bank I talk often with a woman who works there, and asst manager who first asked me my name some 4 years ago and I share with her many of my firsts. Also at the grocery store is an adorable woman who shouts out my name BRIANA from across the store and we run and hug each other. I ahve been more places and did more things in one year that I cannot imagine - been to two auto places having work on the car, going to a variety of stores for many new items, and trying on clothes in various stores in the appropriate changing rooms. A friend even bought a beautiful sweater for me on one of these outings.  This is not all of it however. I have a job - I went to the interview as myself.  I am a adjunct professor - instructor of physics and astronomy at a local college near me. I singed the papers last week for tax forms, retirement et al and all in my name, of course.  I knocked out the interview - they wanted a 20 minute presentation whereby I treat the people present as students and I took it to the Moon as they say - I used my book I published, the Inquisitive Pioneer, and did two hands-on activities from it with a very engaging discussion that went on for over an hour and they were excited and loved it. I did not even realize I had been up there that long and was so happy. Never in my life as a teacher, my natural calling in my life, was I ever fully myself and in this moment I was glowing, engaged, happy, whole and just awesome. I have never been so confident and energetic ever until now.  Again it needs to be said - I, Briana,  am employed as a college teacher of physics and astronomy.  I have been to court and have my name for real and it is awesome. Thus far I am always me, on hormones for nearly two years and I see the changes and feel the changes from inside to out and in all ways. I have grown mentally, spiritually, physically, and both dimensions of inside and externally due to all of these journeys. I have the super blessing of such great friends and super times together. I must confess all growth comes from both the journey externally and one internally as well. Each is needed to weave the gorgeous tapestry that each of us are in our lives. This has been true for me.  In this time I have grown not just physically but emotionally, mentally, even spiritually. All of my friends see it and note it too. It is an incredible awakening or rebirth as my physics teacher noted - he too is on a journey of spirituality in his life and he and I often have talks for hours at a time on all sorts of soul related matters.  This fact - that transitioning is not just bringing to the surface the girl deep inside and showing off via outfits and physical form but instead is the evolution of the whole spirit of the girl that I am. I experience all things emotionally along with deep mental connections and express myself very well.  My gal pals are great emotional bonds with all sorts of conversations and we are supportive of each other in many ways. My friends have literally I feel been life savers for me. I see me emerging, blossoming, and becoming in large part due to their presence. Coming out to oneself is the first most critical day in a transgender woman's life, but then the next big day is coming out to and finding a core True Tribe, as we call ourselves, set of gal pals that effects one another and allows oneself to grow and glow I feel and this is my case. Being in the presence of such good souls has allowed me to blossom and this is awesome.  There is no greater feeling of wholeness, confidence, happiness, depth, and energy of just pure joy than being your whole self at all times in all ways and being acknowledged and accepted by such warm, caring, friends. As I noted to them - I was a dormant seed and now am in a blooming mode through them.  This awakening and awareness has prompted me to look not just the past, not just the present, but the future. Seeking employment is clearly in that camp, but it is much more than that. I am looking in to doing artwork in glass and some other abstract pieces that extend from my being, my feelings, and creativity that is growing too. Besides the glass classes I am looking into knitting an crocheting too for art projects and the like. Also I am still re-developing my previously written books with my voice in it moreover ( since they were published as the guy I had to pretend to be for so long ) and am in the process of crafting a story of my transitioning while including in it composites of transgenders and the issues we face in our journeys as I have witnessed them or brushed up against them too. I began a rough outline of a fictional account a few years back and decided to reopen that file - and guess what - speaking from my heart, my soul - there is my voice - I wrote a couple of pages in minutes without even batting an eye. This is what I am referring to in the full evolution I am encountering and embracing in my womanhood and becoming the woman I am. I can speak from my heart and soul.  I am even looking to being a spokeswoman for young people in terms of positive messages and bringing along being transgender and seeking to build bridges. This along with my art projects, teaching prospects in colleges, and the like. I have allowed my feelings and mind to seek to be who I can be so as to be the positive energy I have inside and can share with others.  Always embracing great health, hope, harmony, and happiness that I often wish others. Always living as I have seen myself, the woman I am, Briana Andromeda Purcell, the Galaxy Girl all my life.  There comes a day when you are just yourself. You feel beautifully whole. I am in these times in my life. I have been out in one year more times doing more things and have more friends than I ever had in all my life before all of this combined.  I am always myself all the time. I am Briana Andromeda Purcell the one and only Galaxy Girl And life is awesome.  Thank you for your time and read on this. I will have many more things in the future as time progresses. Every day has its own unique challenges, energies, but I realize my core is that of a happy girl who makes the universe a bright and warm place as it is in me.  here are some pictures too of the whole set of adventures :

    Hello  my  Sisters !  Its  been a few  months  since  I  last wrote about  any thing  new but  here Goes ! Cross dressing for me  has  always been something that I had to  hide from  my  friends and  mostly my  Mother. My  Mom  knew  that  I  liked dressing up but she  never  showed  much support of  it over  the  years . It  was hard  at first from the  age  of  17 but  as  time  when on my  love  for  it  grew. I ve  been  dressing  up from the  beginning with no  help from anyone and  I am proud that  I  did  it  this way . Since  I  started  on this journey  of  what  I  called  it  "Undercover Womanhood " I  ve  learned a lot  about  myself and  some  of the  reasons Why  I  like "Cross dressing " . Its  has  all ways  been a  way  for  me to  express my  female feelings but  it  has  all so  been a way  to  express  my  sexual side too. A  good  sister  of  mine  from this  Site once  asked  me  this  question "Do  I  dress  because  I  like having sex when wearing  a  dress or  do  I  dress  because  I  want  to  be a  Woman ?   This  question has followed  me  since I  was  asked  this way  back  in  2010 . To  be  honest  I  did  not know  how  to  awnser this  question until now but  at that  time I  did  like  having  "Sex"  in a  dress . Now  that  so  much  has  passed my  needs and wants have  changed and one  thing that  has  changed for  me was the  fact  I  don't have  to  hide "Karen" from  my  Mother . In  December of  2018  I  lost  her  to  Cancer and  my  world  changed forever . We  all  knew  that  her  time  on this  earth was  ending and  she  tried  her  best  to  make  it as  "painless" as  possible on  me and  my  family .  One  day  she  said  to  me " my  time  here  will come and  out  of the  blue she  told  me  I  could  have  All her  dresses . It  blew  me away that  day  she  said this  to  me and  if she  only  knew about  the  time  I  stole one  of  her  dresses and  had  it  for  2  years .  I  miss  My  Mom dearly  and  to  Honor  her  memory  When  I  know  dress up  I  wear  Perfume . This  something that  I  have  never  done  since  I  started to  dress up . As  I  said before I  ve  learned  to  dress up and do  my  own make  up  on my  own but  soon I  will have  some  much welcomed help  my  soon  to  be Wife .  What  can  I  say  about  my  darling Wife other  then she the  most understanding partner A  person  could  ever  have . She  the  new  Love  of  my  life and  she  supports  my  "Cross dressing  "  Fully .  I  feel so  "Blessed" to  have  found someone to  share  my  life and  my  Fem  things  with  . I  feel  like this  is a  New  beginning  a  New Life for  "Karen' and  I  can t  wait  to  see how All this  turns  out !

    Hello Ladies - Though 2109 is only in May I decided to stop in and give an important update and evolution of the life and times of the Galaxy Girl - who is really Briana Andromeda Purcell - more on that as we read - and thank you for stopping by for a read. A friend of mine noted at the start of the year when we were all giving each other well wishes for the New Year this year that I would have an awesome year. I would love to wish so, am ever the optimist, yet there is always a taint of realistic skepticism in there too. Nevertheless she was spot on and this year is thus far far more than I could have even imagined. First, from last May when I first revealed myself to a dozen or so people from high school some 30+ years after high school and had an overwhelmingly positive response - and in time to this year the numbers of friends on facebook has grown to nearly 50 with nearly 20 from here at Gender Society even. One of my gal pals here noted I was very adverse to facebook - I responded - it took both me and the people I met to open that door and all things went better than imagined.  I see friends several times each month at restaurants, we go shopping, and I have even had the great pleasure to spending the day at some of my friends homes - making meals, talking all day, going on walks, and having meals with the whole of the family. I share a soup with one friend another friend and I created at her house - it is awesome - chicken/lentil/rice soup. My friends  and I have taken walks on nature trails and the like as well.  I felt that the development of my body was very good at first last year, then it seemed to slow and seemed a bit sad for me. I contacted my doctor who consulted with others as well and all agreed actually things are on track. Once again women, like my aforementioned friends in the prior paragraphs, were spot on. Always go with the gal instinct I find not just from them, but from me as well - it is certainly growing deeply ( more on this later ). Needless to say within days of that doctor talk suddenly my body has accelerated and am curvier, very feminine in form from head to toe beyond what I could imagine. One gal pal says she envies my arms - they are perfect she noted. This growth and change includes the breasts as would be expected - wow! The hormones ( now nearing 2 years in the next few months ). I have been out in no less than 7 different dresses - my gal pals are wowed by this. I had so many hidden treasures from the past I never had nerve to wear years ago. And with this emerging body - the feeling is so uplifting, satisfying - I dare even call myself beautiful - and know full well it extends to the whole of my being to my core - to the girl I have always been.  I spend each and every day as a woman with no exception. My common daily attire is actually a skirt. I have worn a skirt on average nearly 6 out of every 7 days since August of last year - come rain or shine. At my  bank, the store I regularly shop at there are clerks and managers who call out 'Hi Briana'. I have been noted as female by each and every person I encounter with no exception - name, pronouns, and all. At the regular restaurant my gal pals, my physics teacher, and I visit often we are well known there and have our waiter Bill always - he is the kindest and coolest - often takes the group photos for us so I can post them. I have been to have my tires changes, my oil changed, a muffler put on ( 3 different places ), going to florist, hardware stores, and more and more. It is an every day, every place, every situation where I am me. In this time I have grown not just physically but emotionally, mentally, even spiritually. All of my friends see it and note it too. It is an incredible awakening or rebirth as my physics teacher noted - he too is on a journey of spirituality in his life and he and I often have talks for hours at a time on all sorts of soul related matters.  This fact - that transitioning is not just bringing to the surface the girl deep inside and showing off via outfits and physical form but instead is the evolution of the whole spirit of the girl that I am. I experience all things emotionally along with deep mental connections and express myself very well.  My gal pals are great emotional bounds with all sorts of conversations and we are supportive of each other in many ways. My friends have literally I feel been life savers for me. I see me emerging, blossoming, and becoming in large part due to their presence. Coming out to oneself is the first most critical day in a transgender woman's life, but then the next big day is coming out to and finding a core True Tribe, as we call ourselves, set of gal pals that effects one another and allows oneself to grow and glow I feel and this is my case. Being in the presence of such good souls has allowed me to blossom and this is awesome.  As I noted previously I am even seeking employment where I apply with my name, Briana. This is still an ongoing quest - there are a number of open positions being evaluated with this writing. I have applied to no less than 5 universities and as many as a dozen positions as well. One of my closest friends for decades of time, a PhD himself even penned a letter of recommendation for me to his alma mater - I was in tears. ( I find cute kittens, thinking about friends, and the like brings on these crying episodes regularly ).  This has led me to finally standing full and strong and with the help of my physics teacher - we have undertaken a journey whereby I will be Briana Andromeda Purcell now and forever more in name legally. I just mailed today the official paperwork after applying to the necessary court system and being fingerprinted too. Still more steps to go, but I am me always. There is no greater feeling of wholeness, confidence, happiness, depth, and energy of just pure joy than being your whole self at all times in all ways and being acknowledged and accepted by such warm, caring, friends. As I noted to them - I was a dormant seed and now am in a blooming mode through them.  This awakening and awareness has prompted me to look not just the past, not just the present, but the future. Seeking employment is clearly in that camp, but it is much more than that. I am looking in to doing artwork in glass and some other abstract pieces that extend from my being, my feelings, and creativity that is growing too. Next month I plan to attend a glass class to look into this with one of my gal pals. I am looking into knitting an crocheting too for art projects and the like. Also I am re-developing my previously written books with my voice in it moreover ( since they were published as the guy I had to pretend to be for so long ) and am in the process of crafting a story of my transitioning while including in it composites of transgenders and the issues we face in our journeys as I have witnessed them or brushed up against them too. I began a rough outline of a fictional account a few years back and decided to reopen that file - and guess what - speaking from my heart, my soul - there is my voice - I wrote a couple of pages in minutes without even batting an eye. This is what I am referring to in the full evolution I am encountering and embracing in my womanhood and becoming the woman I am. I can speak from my heart and soul.  I am even looking to being a spokeswoman for young people in terms of positive messages and bringing along being transgender and seeking to build bridges. This along with my art projects, teaching prospects in colleges, and the like. I have allowed my feelings and mind to seek to be who I can be so as to be the positive energy I have inside and can share with others.  Always embracing great health, hope, harmony, and happiness that I often wish others. Always living as I have seen myself, the woman I am, Briana Andromeda Purcell, the Galaxy Girl all my life.  Thank you for the time in reading this. Thank you Gender Society which I recommend often to others as I encounter them due to your support and the great people here that gave me the initial confidence I needed so long ago and has helped me arrive here and move ever forward. All the best to each of you in your journey. Note there are days I feel sad, blue, and there are some bumps in the road hither and tither but at the core I am always myself and you know what? That is all I need and the knowledge that the sun comes up again tomorrow. In the long run all the good will outweigh the bad because I only radiate positive vibes all the time.  I find myself in a state of happy self all the time - fully being the girl, the Galaxy Girl at that, has been the single most important thing in all of my life. I wish for each of you joy, wholeness, good caring friends and love in your journey. I have found this and so much more thus far and will write more as the journey continues. I have been very blessed.  I feel these photos show just how much radiant joy there is inside and it beams out to the whole of the world, even galaxy ( nickname teehee ), if not the cosmos as well. They are taken by friends - no better picture than that I feel.  Love, Briana Andromeda Purcell - the one and only Galaxy Girl - always and evermore

    Well its been a long winter for me and in my last blog  I wrote about the lose of my  Mother .  I ve had some tough times before but nothing like I had this past Winter . It's true That I live in the "Great White North "  and  this winter I was reminded of this .  We got so much snow that it reminded me of years gone by when you go so much snow it made things difficult .  Somedays was a  "Challenge " for me  physically and for good reason … I slipped and fell on some black Ice and tore my quad MCL from the right knee bone .  Never in my life had I ever suffered such pain as this and physical challenges before . After spending 3 days in hospital and doing repair surgery I made it home and I had to face my first challenge .  In order to gain entry to my home I have 6 steps to my front door and it was one  painful climb but with help . Then it was the daily tasks of how to manage to do things in my home alone and with use of a walker one painful step at a time .  My First night at home was hard because I slept on a waterbed and I could not get comphy because the pain I was in . The hardest part was when I had to get up to use the washroom at the other end of the house and I could not get out of bed . It was a good thing that I remember how to shimmy myself over to my office chair and then to my walker . Its been three months now since this all has unfolded till now  and I am in a knee brace now . I hoping to be walking better without  a limp and a  "click" sound from the brace soon .  All this has not stopped me  from "Dressing " and beeing me but it has made me abit leery of falling and hurting myself .  I should mention that I had fallen a seconed time two weeks after surgery and tore the repair that was done so I had to re do everything . All so I had fallen at the hospital as I was heading to the triage and smacked my right hand on the concrete floor  and factured and dis located my right thumb . I'm happy that the Dr that redid my repair all so fixed my thumb as I was a sleep .  So I'm hoping from now  on that things go better for me and no more  snow  till December !!

    Hello, it's been a little while since I last posted. I've recently been approved of getting T-shots from my endocrinologist, but I'm still having some doubts on whether they'll be helpful or not. For those who don't know, I have BDD (Body Dysmorphic Disorder) so I'm a little worried once I take these a part of me will think I look even uglier? I'm really hoping that's not the case, but is it really worth the risk and money? I just can't decide... Any advice would be greatly appreciated. In all honesty... I'd rather be an "ugly" male than an attractive female, but... I still worry about how I'll react to the results.

    Hello Ladies - Galaxy Girl's annual post to wrap up 2018 and look ahead to 2019 - wow does time go by and Super wow, what a year 2018 was. I do not even know where to begin - At the start of 2018 I had one friend on facebook, a dear life-long friend who I did not have the nerve to tell my secret to. I had just told my doctor and therapist in 2017 and was now on hormones for 4 months at the start of that year - and things were certainly a changin' as it is said. More than physical it was emotional, even philosophical - I somehow had gained enormous confidence in myself and was quite out daily - nails were done, only women's clothes daily - even when encountering my parents ( that tale requires its own blog - it's weird ). I had gone to bed in Dec of 2017 with a single prayer - crying i asked for just one friend. Due to circumstances that science and probability cannot explain I stumbled across another tgirl and would you believe - she is in my graduating class and lived 3 blocks from me growing up! With now 2 friends on facebook and 1 who knows and 1 who does not, suddenly - before revealing myself a dozen or so high school friends requested friendship - I hesitantly said yes telling myself I want them to see my published books and maybe I can sell some. Deep down I knew this to be a lie. In my mind's eye I could see a table of a dozen of us there and only 2 know my secret - I couldn't deal with that and hated the lie - so best to do - read my last blog is it he letter I posted with pictures and the world has never been the same.  Friends have been enormously supportive, communicative, and we interact often - I even see my high school physics teacher at one or more restaurants monthly with conversations that last for hours on every topic imaginable - he is deeply caring, philosophical, intelligent and has the soul of a saint. My other friends have many similar tales of restaurants and such - this is a big thing to me - I'm totally out and they are there with me - great talks, hugs, conversations of jobs, kids, homes, pets, health, hopes and fears, and all other things too. One friend is a the dearest - she not only wanted to get together, she then asks 'so when is the coming out party' - which we organized at my parents house - can you believe it - my father even took pictures of me with my gal pals which we are the group that sees each other often. We went to restaurants, shopping, even have a cookathon at one of my friend's homes - note I have done of these things ever - I have not been to a restaurant in over 10 years for many reasons for example. My really close friend even bought me a dress ( after measuring me in a bathroom at one of our restaurant outings - teehee ). These friends have helped me mentally, emotionally, motivationally, and energy-wise beyond my imagination in more ways than I can even tell all of you here. My sister in law even whispered in my ear on Christmas Day - I have always wanted a sister - can you believe it??!! The year of 2018 I fully to my soul, my core, and my whole being I became and am Briana - the girl I have always been since age 5 and struggled with for over 40 years from that time until I came out to myself in 2012 and  began the progression to where I am today and ever moving forward. Last year was the quantum leap that solidified my whole being.  Now at the start of 2019 - Looking to a job - I have even applied to nearly 10 posted positions at 4 universities and guess what - as myself - Briana no less!! I have been and am on hormones for 1.3 years as of this writing and it certainly shows - the early photos long ago and now - I smile from ear to ear with sheer delight at all of the major and even minor changes - plus the overall total balance of my being - the serenity, harmony, overall sense of happiness and well-being that is through my whole person - I have no negative element in me at all - it is awesome. I have a number of friends from here on facebook - if you like - look me up and ask - that would be really cool.  This year has not only a job hunt and believe me success in the future but then on to other things - my therapist and another one for my letters for the operation and electrolysis and all things. Always reaching for the woman I am and living as the woman I am each and every moment of the day and in all years.  Always embracing great health, hope, harmony, and happiness that I often wish others. Always living as I have seen myself, the woman I am, Briana Purcell, the Galaxy Girl all my life.  Thank you for the time in reading this. Thank you Gender Society which I recommend often to others as I encounter them due to your support and the great people here that gave me the initial confidence I needed so long ago and has helped me arrive here and move ever forward. All the best to each of you in your journey. Note there are days I feel sad, blue, and there are some bumps in the road hither and tither but at the core I am always myself and you know what? That is all I need and the knowledge that the sun comes up again tomorrow. In the long run all the good will outweigh the bad because I only radiate positive vibes all the time.  I find myself in a state of happy self all the time - fully being the girl, the Galaxy Girl at that, has been the single most important thing in all of my life. Hugs, Briana Purcell : )

  • Hello Ladies - Galaxy Girl's annual post to wrap up 2018 and look ahead to 2019 - wow does time go by and Super wow, what a year 2018 was. I do not even know where to begin - At the start of 2018 I had one friend on facebook, a dear life-long friend who I did not have the nerve to tell my secret to. I had just told my doctor and therapist in 2017 and was now on hormones for 4 months at the start of that year - and things were certainly a changin' as it is said. More than physical it was emotional, even philosophical - I somehow had gained enormous confidence in myself and was quite out daily - nails were done, only women's clothes daily - even when encountering my parents ( that tale requires its own blog - it's weird ). I had gone to bed in Dec of 2017 with a single prayer - crying i asked for just one friend. Due to circumstances that science and probability cannot explain I stumbled across another tgirl and would you believe - she is in my graduating class and lived 3 blocks from me growing up! With now 2 friends on facebook and 1 who knows and 1 who does not, suddenly - before revealing myself a dozen or so high school friends requested friendship - I hesitantly said yes telling myself I want them to see my published books and maybe I can sell some. Deep down I knew this to be a lie. In my mind's eye I could see a table of a dozen of us there and only 2 know my secret - I couldn't deal with that and hated the lie - so best to do - read my last blog is it he letter I posted with pictures and the world has never been the same.  Friends have been enormously supportive, communicative, and we interact often - I even see my high school physics teacher at one or more restaurants monthly with conversations that last for hours on every topic imaginable - he is deeply caring, philosophical, intelligent and has the soul of a saint. My other friends have many similar tales of restaurants and such - this is a big thing to me - I'm totally out and they are there with me - great talks, hugs, conversations of jobs, kids, homes, pets, health, hopes and fears, and all other things too. One friend is a the dearest - she not only wanted to get together, she then asks 'so when is the coming out party' - which we organized at my parents house - can you believe it - my father even took pictures of me with my gal pals which we are the group that sees each other often.
