Probably biggest area of failure in my life. September been unemployed 10 years. I live with my parents to this day in my mid 40s. Last job was Walmart cashier for 8 years. Got fired because customer complained that I yawned, which I could not control because my medication made me tired. They were looking for a reason to get rid of me by then. My gender variant behavior is why they were trying to get rid of me and succeeded. Customers would find complaints on me because of my appearance. It is not for lack of education. I have a BBA degree with a emphasis in Accounting. I never could pass the CPA exam. It never became a viable career path. I put in jobs in this area and nobody contact me back then. 40 days into transition is not the time for job hunting. Your appearance will be changing right before their eyes if hired. Another reason employers will fire you. Finding employment is on my radar now. I can't depend on my parents forever. They are retired now. My parents have long given up on me succeeding in life. They think I be spending the rest of their life depending on them. They are about to get surprised. I am finally thinking about my future.

Hi Kaleig_hC,

This is a pretty good time to get into the work force, as plenty of companies are looking for employees.
Where I live I'm seeing companies like Home Depot support gender diversity.

I'm out where I work, slowly evolving my wardrobe as my hair grew long.
My hair now reaches the middle of my back and I've started wearing skirts the past few weeks!
I have the benefit of Seniority, which means I know how to do important stuff that nobody else can do or figure out how to do.  I've been working in the same place for a long time, so I know how to do a lot of stuff from memory having done it so many times in the past.

Good for you.  Take control of your life.  It's going to be hard, but you'll be a lot happier in the future if you are in control of your own destiny.

You are missed here!

Please post again soon!



Chrissy
Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Thank you for your reply.  I am rooting for your success in your new job.

So if I understand correctly.... you design a printed circuit board with all
of the copper traces and solder-thru holes, designate the layout of the
 components on the board, etc....   based on a schematic/design from
an engineer.... or do you do all or some of the original circuit design first? ???

... or have I missed something???

Again, I am very happy for you in acquiring your new job.
       Please keep me and the rest of your followers updated.

Hi Danielle,
I do the schematics as well as the layout. I can also do the FPGA hardware inside the system on chip. So quite useful anywhere in the design process, throw in some firmware too.
Over my long career I have been continuously learning new skills hence the very broad skill set.
There is also a massive skills shortage in the UK at the moment.
Plus it is a great company to work for. I am very lucky.

Retired two years now. The final 20 years I was a cartographer/GIS tech for USDA Forest Service. 90% of the time sitting in front of a computer making sense of data, the other 10% training others to collect it for me. This agency is shedding it's historical "all male" persona and becoming more inclusive. I was able to come to the office in girl clothes whenever I wished, usually 2/3 days per week without any negative attention. This agency has a history of having a "boots and jeans" dress code, but I was able to pull off the sundress and sandals look.
I yam what I yam, and that's all what I yam.
