Me, when a lengthy depression lifts itself for a single solitary evening: oh my oh me, what one million new projects shall i immediately throw myself into

@electroCutie honestly I know enough NASA engineers and scientists with accents from across the South that it might as well be
In my city, it's a meme that the first question folks will ask when meeting someone new is, "What high school did you go to?"
Owing to this city's past and current history of vicious school segregation, and a prevalence of private schools (secular and religious) undermining public education, that one question gives folks great insight into one's socioeconomic status and even religious affiliation.
And that's some bullshit.

Imagining myself getting a booth at a trade show, and when people ask me why I’ve put so much effort into making my sequencer user-serviceable, I’ll be able to say “Our company anticipates that there will be a prolonged global economic and ecological collapse in the medium-term”
Is there a zine that's like, prepping but for collectivists? As in "when the 18-wheelers stop coming, here's what to do." How to grow food in soil you can't test, how to make abandoned buildings livable, how to maintain and create organization with your neighbors, food preservation, medicine, etc
Something you can stash in a drawer for just-in-case, to keep your neighbors alive in case of collapse. I'd definitely buy one

One of the more minor annoyances: look, I understand the impulse to start with low dosing and work up, I really do. But what I need doctors to understand is that I weigh almost 2 of whatever human they base dosing guidelines on.

I finally had an appointment with a psychiatric nurse practitioner, and she was patient and kind, and took abundant time to listen to my concerns.
We did some bloodwork and other tests, and I'm gonna followup next week to get a prescription for whatever antidepressant she thinks will work well, and I was able to get something for anxiety today.
Fingers crossed that we're at a turning point for the bad brain weather of the past year!
If I have understood the label correctly, these tulips are pretty much what tulips looked like before humans got involved. Certainly these grow wild in central Asia. (Seen at the Keukenhof.)
Rural politics Show more
@interneteh It's still a hot crock of bullshit, though. National level Dems read "Hillbilly Elegy" and think they know everything about rural Kentucky, and the state party keeps moving more to the right.
I'm given a lot of hope by stories of local organizing and direct action, though.

@interneteh I have roots in the area of Appalachia that AOC was invited to (and still live in KY).
Rural Kentucky has a lot of sympathies for Dems, and a lot of local elections are still very Blue (https://kycir.org/2016/11/07/red-or-blue-your-countys-political-leanings-and-more/), but of course, voter suppression, transportation issues, and just plain racism drive the state and national elections.
