selfies, eye contact, very boostable 

i went on a walk because i was just so full of stim energy!

You coffee-powered dream machine,
You’re lovely. And I’m sorry,
That it’s taken me so long to realize.
I always knew it, but thought I knew better.
Thank you for being here now.
Sincerely, your lover, self.

My partner had a breakthrough and is now fully supportive of me transitioning. She had some good talks with friends and folks in a FB support group for cis partners. It went from being terrifying and impossible to a passion project once her emotional road block dissolved. I have an emphatic advocate now and it’s overwhelmingly sweet. 😭💕

📢 I’m coming out soon y’all, this is not a drill!🚨

Any recommendations for a secret Facebook support group for AMAB who is transitioning?

Say hello to Telephant!

I've written a little Mastodon client for the Desktop - called Telephant - and am currently looking for beta testers!

Want to help out and don't mind compiling the app yourself? (Don't worry it's fairly straight forward and I've added detailed instructions to the README!)

Join me here:

Looking forward to hearing your feedback!

Do any beautiful & clever techie ppl on here see any path for creating a decentralized Lyft/Uber competitor? They just feel so predatory toward drivers.. something to give power back to the drivers would be cool.

Last week I saw someone recommend as a way to make money from home by transcribing. Skeptical, I had a look to see if they were legit, and they seemed to be, so I signed up.

There's a small grammar and English quiz, and then a transcription test, to apply. If successful, you can see client transcription jobs and their pay-per-minute, choose whichever jobs you like, work as much/little as you want.

if student debt cancellation happened after i paid off my student loans, i would be happy, because im not a fucking shithead who demands that the entire world revolve around me and i can be happy for other people getting a fair deal

holiday PTSD...? 

I’m starting to wonder if I’m having a PTSD-esque response to Easter. I’m agnostic and attend a flexible/accepting church. I played music today and genuinely enjoyed helping other people have a worship experience but the “he is risen indeed” wore me down. I don’t know if I believe in “he” at all. I feel myself retreating in my mind. I also had a strong trigger from overhearing “every move I make” (Hillsong kids) in a childcare room. It just takes me back in a twisted nostalgia.

US Politics 

Republicans are the extremists.

Well, yes. Fascists. Terrorists. Autocrats. Kleptocrats. The whole nine yards. It's the white religion with all the facades stripped away.

time management, ranting 

I don’t think I’ve used CW’s enough lately.

Okay, so my work junk has shaken me a bit. Just so done with working under shitty people. I’ve seen first hand from several folks in my life that you can make a sustainable income from indie video game development. I want to pursue it.

My problem is I never have enough time. I’m always exhausted, and I think I need to change that. How do you keep a routine and make time for personal development? Any tips? 💚

Welp. They finally said explicitly “We’re not open to negotiating. Sorry it’s not what you were hoping for.”

It’s not what I was hoping for because it wasn’t what I was offered, asshats. The double bummer is that the client company is not a viable option. So I’ll just stay I guess, and job search in the meantime. Ugh

The Notre Dame cathedral is on fire right now, and my brain is torn. The strongest feeling is heartbreak, but there is also part of me that feels a strong sense of symbolism as the fire (likely due to renovations) consumes such an important icon that has captivated the hearts of so many.

@WolfDreamer I lived in Paris for 14 years. All three of my children were born there. I cannot tell you what it means that Notre-Dame is burning. I feel grief and horror at the images. Something iconic and beautiful is being consumed by fire. A place that has been visited and cherished by so many people over so many years, the symbolic heart of the capital, is suffering. And those who call themselves Parisians with it.

I was feeling the need to be wanted intimately but my partner was already asleep. Instead of stewing in my own feelings I decided I would go out and make myself feel desirable on my own shopping expedition. It worked 😍💚

Show thread

I went to goodwill to try on cute clothes. I bought my first sweater dress!

jesus. My new job pulled a fast one on me. Gave me a 35% paycut from what we talked about.

not really helping me with wanted to be alive

passive suicidality 

It’s been a rough day, week, month... heck, year even. I’m not in danger but I’ve been feeling that “if I just disappeared that would be a relief”
