New job next week, starting from the first with the correct pronouns. :D Also a new ID photo. Any thoughts or recommendations on making sure the photo looks good for the next two years?

Id photos are like driver's license photos - they are never good.

How will you be presenting at work - that is how I would want my photo to represent me.
When writing the next chapter in your life, start with a pencil and eraser - my first page as Miki is full of eraser marks. Doodling is allowed. I have started a new chapter but will still use a pencil.

Feminine. I will definitely be dressed accordingly. I'm hoping that, if it isn't a good photo, at least it'll be a bit less bad than it could be. :lol:

You should always look as DRUNK as possible for Drivers License photos.

I've completely given up on the possibility of a decent driver's license photo. :lol:

I thought it was a legal requirement to look as terable as posable on ID photos. ? I look like I been caught by the fashion police on most of mine!

I actually look ok on my OHIP card and my Ontario Photo ID (done the same day).

The government employee must have been new at it :)

If you attempt to chastise me for verbally biting someone who was verbally mean to me, I'll verbally bite you too. Don't be quoting me rules either.

I don't know, mine always look much better when I look at them 10 or 20 years later.
