Introduction 

Welp, new time!

👋 I'm Solcte, otherwise Sol or Spirit. I'm just a country bumpkin trying to be a grown-up in this crazy world. Sometimes.

🌿 Things I like to talk about will include outdoor wanderings, books, attempts at sewing creations and talking about my sonas/OC's.

Always happy to meet new folks, message me anytime! I'm friendly. 🙂

Selfie, Genderqueer 

Speaking of visibility, I recently got my hair dyed for the first time in a couple years. Decided to go loud and PROUD with the Genderqueer colors! I'm loving it! :ablobcatrave:

I drew this comic a while back, and with the start of another pride month with another slew of terrifying things going on, here is my comic about Feeling Safe and lashing out against the phrase "you don't have to make your sexuality your whole personality"

CW for describing a memory of people being transphobic, but I think it's worth not blurring the entire comic for it

I was busy most of this week but finally got to make a new icon for pride month!

Covid, cancelling plans 

With the current climate of reducing restrictions and rising Covid + cases - I won't be going to Megaplex this year. Seeing the airlines practically rolling out the welcome mat for Covid + folks was the final nail in the coffin for me.

Sad because this would've been my first EVER vacation outside of my own state. There's so many friends and awesome people I want to see! But, the risks are adding up too much.

I really wish people would take Covid seriously. :blobcatflip:

Lots of experimentation later, and I finally found a marker that works for drawing patterns on dark fleece! This silver metallic Sharpie worked out here.

Taking a few days off to relax and ground myself again. I want to go out somewhere, but I'm also still afraid to be around large crowds..

Then, there's the constant pull between "be productive!" and "you need to relax harder!" :blobcatfearful:

Making plans is challenging. :blobcateyes:

It has seriously been SO hard for me to slowly chip away at redoing my wardrobe. Between body weight changes and my shift in gender expression, it is a challenge! :blobcatfearful:

Went to pull out a really old button-up shirt and I'm like.. titty pockets? Seriously? No wonder I never wore this. :blobcatumm:

Hm.. I've recently found that my town/area has a couple private Facebook groups for LGBTQ+ community/resources. I stopped using FB a LONG time ago so I'm annoyed to see these groups only on FB. :blobcateyes:

But, now I'm thinking of activating my account again just so I can access this community and tap into these resources. I just hate FB so much, though. :blobcatglaredrink:

New plush friend has joined the family! Their name is Gummi. :ablobcathappypaws:

Currently collecting these unicorn hybrid plushies every time I find one - they also light up and play music! :blobcatmeltcry:

Grr. Trying to scale up sewing patterns for printing and finding my printer isn't cooperating.. maybe I'll try at the library tomorrow. :blobcateyes:

The last couple days have been .. rough.

Fellow friends, can you please share positive stories and/or things that bring you (queer/trans) joy in the difficult days? What lifts your spirits in these times?

Let's get some positivity running through here! :blobcatcouple: :ablobpride1:

Confession:

Even if Elon doesn't end up buying Tw*tter I am staying here.

I love it here. It feels like home. I have found a family 💚

WildSolcte boosted

I'll go first! It may be silly, but some of the things that bring me joy on tough days are .. my comfort buddy, Thor! (The decidedly trans hedgehog. She lights up and plays sound, too!) :blobcatgoogly:

And Pokemon. And my gardening. And feeling inspired to create new things from all of these. It's the little things that make me smile, okay? :blobcatgooglyshrug:

Been working in the garden most of the day and I am TIRED. :blobcatmelt3:

Just planted jalapenos, tomatoes, parsley, mint, marigolds, plus several flowers and sprucing up the soil around the place.

I'll try to share photos and updates soon. ish.

Work (-), gender/pronouns 

So today I repeatedly asked a co-worker to use my they/them pronouns. They finally rebutted saying it's "against their beliefs" and they think they "shouldn't have to do that"

I had to leave the room and find help because I started shaking/crying. Spoke to my boss who is basically "yeah that's discrimination, but.. we can't change people's beliefs" I just, can't anymore. I'm so tired of garbage humans.

Can I just fade away and cease to exist now?

Americans: :Actually: I'd hate to live in a dreary commie land where all housing is identical and I'm not allowed to use it as I see fit

Also Americans: well I'd like to paint my house a nice bold blue, but then it might not resell for as much. Beige it is! Wait hang on, the HOA is emailing me about my food garden they say is unsightly. I'll have to dig it up.
