Quickie: My last speech therapy session of the semester.



I don't know how I got 3 separate images playing as if they were a slide show. But I was wearing this dress today when I went to my last speech therapy session of the semester.

At the beginning of this semester, I didn't think that the student therapist and I weren't going to click too well. But I stuck things out and realized that it was my perception of things that might have been in error.  Over the semester, our personalities grew on each other, and both of us said that we'll miss each other, now that the semester has ended.

Today's therapy session was going to be an abbreviated one, as the student therapist and her supervisor wanted to review the results of this semester's progress.  We started off with the usual breathing exercises, followed by vocal warm ups. And then we got to doing two things: (1) singing and (2) general conversation using feminine non verbal skills.  I feel that I still have a way to go with both actions, as I can not project myself with a proper feminine pitch when singing and my non-verbal skills (e.g. hand movement, head position, eye contact,, etc.) is still a little reserved for a woman. And this is what I want to work on in the fall, just so I can polish up the remaining elements of my feminine communication skills and to find out what the next steps will be on my trip towards femininity.

Towards the end of the session, I asked the supervisor a simple question - does she think I've reached the point of diminishing returns with therapy sessions. She said 'No' - I may be close, but another semester's worth of work would get me there. And this means that I will be going to continue with Saturday morning sessions in the fall.  Hopefully, GFJ won't be too upset with this.
