Pinned toot

I'm Tommy, an Atlanta native, software developer, enneagram 5w6.

I was introduced to the Liturgists at the very start of my , and continued to deconstruct at the same time as going through my divorce.

Even though I've just lurked until now, this community has been such a meaningful, safe space for new ideas that aren't too accepted by those around me.

So glad to be able to be here with you all!

It's okay if you fall apart sometimes.
Tacos fall apart and we still love them.

"The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the most fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Anyone who is unacquainted with it and can no longer marvel, no longer be amazed, is as good as dead, his sight gone." - Albert Einstein in a 1932 recording he called "My Credo"

Anxiety, mixing friend groups 

This is such a 5 thing, and I'm a sexual 5 so large groups are hard to do in the first place. I hate the idea of not being able to be present with everyone. Or that some people may feel left out. Or that it'll be obvious that I'm tighter with one group than the other, even though that's just a natural thing and it's nothing to be embarrassed about, but for some reason I am

Anxiety, mixing friend groups 

I feel like this is a fairly regular thing, but it always gives me so much anxiety having friends from different groups in one place. Tomorrow I'm getting together with a bunch of people from two distinct groups in my life, and I just have so much anxiety about it that I'm starting to dread it. Like tomorrow is my birthday and I just want to enjoy my friends

Looking back I've always had this anxiety and have really compartmentalized friends

Hey everybody so instagram deleted Jamie Lee Finch’s account bc she was reported so much for sharing the cover of her new book, which features the body of a woman (GASP). Nipples not even exposed (regardless of that bullshit policy). If you’re on other social media would you join me in raising a damn stink to IG about this instafuckery?

Alcohol + the Enneagram is my new favorite way to spend time with friends at the bar. 10/10 would definitely recommend

I've been on and off here for the last few weeks (life's been crazy), but I just wanted to say that you all are wonderful people and I love scrolling through my home feed. Happy Saturday!

Fediverse, hearken unto me. I have a mighty need, and only you can help.

I require articles about things millennials have killed or are killing. As many as you can bring me. Major things or insignificant. Cold takes or hot. Moderately or extremely stupid. Personal or statistical. Everything you've got, as long as you can provide a link to the source.

I wish to admire our handiwork, and the angst it has inspired. I crave this as one lost in the desert craves drink.

Boosts welcome.

“Listen longer than comfortable”

This is something that has been going through my head for the last few months. A small mantra I use on the journey of peacemaking.

I've never felt so called out

Took a 15ft fall for the first time today at the climbing gym (don't worry, was on a rope) and now I can't tell if I like the climbing or the falling better. Adrenaline is one hell of a drug

Remember capitals in hastags for our visually impaired friends.
E.g. if you type text to voice programs may not recognise the words so will spell it out. If you type the two words will be recognised and communicated. It makes it faster for them to read a comment.

Take a break before you need it. It will make it easier to prevent burnout.
