new since it's been a minute

I love

* creative constraints
* minimal solutions
* programming
* weird or obsolete stuff
* longboarding
* therapy
* making and listening to music
* psychology
* plants
* bread
* trying new recipes
* solving puzzles and problems
* minimalism (not the cult)
* budgeting
* projects

I'm learning to be more vulnerable and how to be more empathetic. I'm also almost always working on something my friends think is stupid, but it's actually cool, trust me

I can't go into any specifics until some paperwork is handled, but suffice to say I'm back on the job market effective immediately.

I love Linux, Rust, Python (sometimes), systems and networking, automation, dev XP and tooling, ethics in tech, **four day or less work weeks** (I've worked 4DWW for the past year and I would love to keep it that way), etc. Any of ya who know me to any degree here know what I get into

covid 

Quarantined and taking care of my partner who got covid a couple days ago. It's quite harrowing to see what covid can do to someone with fibromyalgia / chronic pain. Please wear a mask when going out, you never know if you could be exposing someone more vulnerable to you ~

@Sandra 'viewers hate it but it works' is the core of online marketing tbh

I remember making this bread before I went on tour via plane and it was great plane food. I also remember a friend saying "what a cool hobby" and it's so funny, I had NO idea how to respond to that because I so rarely had people earnestly say something like that about something I was doing. It's usually veiled irony or kind of a "that's weird" statement. Brains, weeeee

oh damn I totally forgot about this do-nothing bread. 24 hr ferment with a tiny tiny amount of starter, then a simple final shape and then final ferment and bake. Super delicious and about as easy as possible, save for the ferment post-shaping you need a couche or something

Why are designers obsessed with hiding stuff on web pages? Scrolling works! Just let me scroll the goddamn page. Don’t send me off on a treasure hunt to click buttons and crap just to see what you’re trying to sell.

Politics arise when a group bigger than a single person needs to make a decision of what to do or how to handle a specific situation or type of situations.

Okay now I’m going to try growing mung bean sprouts in coffee grounds and see if I have the same success as @neauoire

Aside from asking something like "do you mind if I ask you a couple questions about X", which doesn't feel too bad, but still feels like I'm going into a convo like "oh you're Y, so can I ask you questions about X as a representative of all community Y".

Maybe I'm just overthinking things

I am naturally super averse to any conflict because of my own baggage, so I essentially completely avoid directly talking to communities about topics that affect them, but then I'm left with sources and research that I am only going off of random stuff I find that I have no idea if it's reputable or safe info.

I guess one can't (completely) avoid someone else feeling a certain way based on their actions, but I don't know how to bridge this communication gap in a compassionate way

Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
