Maybe our soul/essence/core is the choices we make whilst having these thoughts, feelings, and bodies we didn't ask for forced upon us. And if that's the case, maybe realizing we're not responsible for or defined by the three can help our choices be more genuine to who we really are.

Mental health thoughts; eye contact in drawing 

A technique some people use to cope with mental health issues is to "re-raise their inner child" in their head. The idea is to give the inner child support and love and comfort so they can grow up secure and confident--basically, re-write your traumatic childhood.

I've tried it, and I think it's a good technique, but personally? In my case, it kinda ends up being the inner child raising me instead of the other way around.

Ableism meta; challenging yourself 

I 100% recommend challenging yourself to stop using ableist words if you haven't already. Some people dismiss it as "a step too far" and say "words have to mean something", but it isn't just the words: it's the way of thinking that goes with them.

Hi, I'm Lexi! I'm a geeky nerd who's tired of the birdsite and its hate. Sorry for being a social media immigrant~

More about me:

🔹 I like cartoons and comic books. Also anime and manga, but I don't dispute that they're the same thing.
🔹 I like fantasy and science fiction. Star Wars is okay, but I prefer Star Trek.
🔹 Video games are neat, but I sorta grew out of them. Still like retro games!
🔹 Very pro-free speech, but even more pro-anti-harassment.

I swear someone posted something about a Windows 10 exploit that could corrupt your drive the other day but I can't find any evidence of it anywhere and now I'm wondering if I dreamed it.

@Lexi Interviewer asked the writers about this. They responded: “Look... Listen... It’s... The way it... I mean... You know? Yeah.” *hand waving and nodding at each other in agreement*

@Lexi LMAO yeah... I mean, for a fundamentally essential component of the starship, as well as being one which must be HANDLED WITH EXTREME CARE, you’d think they would have built in a few guide rails running down that shaft along which the core would run during an ejection sequence? And it’s not like a warp core ejection is not part of the standard operating protocols of every single warp-capable starfleet ship, so engineers would have thought it thru? 🤣

Modern Star Trek griping 

And I mean, we've seen the floor plans of the ship on the show and there's no giant caverns for turbolifts and warp cores and whatever.

Modern Star Trek griping 

This is apparently the USS Discovery's warp core and the "room" it's held in. I swear you could practically fit the whole Enterprise in this cavern.

Modern Star Trek griping 

Look at how the engine room looked on the movie version of the Enterprise. You could tell how big the warp core was compared to the people around it. You could even see down the length of engineering where the conduits branch off and go to power the warp nacelles. That and the curved shape of the ceiling lets you know exactly where this room is--basically the top level of the secondary hull, and running a good length of that hull. The attention to detail and scale here is pretty great.

Modern Star Trek griping 

I'm sorry to harp on about this, but why does modern Trek have no interest in having the insides of their ships make sense and/or match the outsides? It's been like this since the 2009 movie.

"It's just a TV show so who cares?"

I mean, Star Trek used to care... And despite people who say things like that, consistency in a story is _always_ a good thing. Being able to tell where your characters are in relation to everything is a good thing. The moment I'm like, "Wait, are they not on Discovery anymore?" you've failed your job as interior ship designer.

This was probably the best season so far for the record. At least the crew feel like people now.
