#introduction #2. Super real facts!
I am 35 and consider myself a working class academic, bisexual (or pan if you like), bigender, a nerd with (almost) no programming skills, a Gryffelclaw, a christian and a cat person. 2 longterm relationships (5/10 years) + 1 amazing roommate. Depression issues, Hypersensitivity, usually a bit tense.
I used to blog about sex, but haven't due to a burnout situation. I love analyzing people, DIY, especially building stuff, good bourbon and Hannah Gadsby.
Frei nach dem Motto "Code Gutes und streame darüber" haben wir mal ein paar Server zusammengeführt und eine Plattform für euch gebaut, auf der ihr Videokonferenzen mit euren Lieben unkompliziert, ohne registrierung, sicher und stabil abhalten könnt.
Just saw a calendar with an abstract painting of an interesting feminist for each month. I love calendars! Didn't quite like the style though.
Now I'm wondering if maybe @TQ will make one some day :)
Playing Sims 2
I've been playing a family of plant Sims that has been getting huge, because the mom (Rose) wanted to have 10 kids. They live in four households now. I accidentally named one child Rose, too, that was very confusing. The father became a Plantsim as well from inhaling too many pesticides.
One kid is now a witch living with her witch wife and her sister. One wants to raise kittens and lives with his sister whose dream it is to woo-hoo in public. Wonder how that's going to work out.
Quarantaine diary +
I'm conflicted about saying that but actually the last weeks have been good for me personally. Apparently it was really urgent to take some time away from pretending to be a normal person every day. I loved my castle of solitude. Finding my own rhythm and schedule. Preparing my own food. Having the bed to myself. Never regretted not having children less.
I have danced more than usually. I was in contact with more people more regularly. It was nice.

Housebound advice from a long-term housebound person, boosts ok
I'm going to post a long thread on how to cope better if you're stuck indoors at the moment. I've been housebound by disability for a long while now, and sporadically housebound due to depression and agoraphobia before that. These are things that have improved how I deal with that. This is not gonna make houseboundness painless for you but it might help you cope. Disabled comrades are welcome to share their own advice to this thread.
I get that this is a scary situation. But it actually makes me hopeful. It's the first time in forever that worldwide, society is putting lives over business. That's a big thing.
Yes, we are seperated physically. But we're doing this together. It made me happy that people gave each other space last time I was outside. It made me smile at them. Because it's difficult but we can manage to save lives together.
Quarantaine diary, food privilege
Had to go outside today because I accidentally threw my rug out of the window 🙈
It was actually nice to see people, they were all pretty considerate.
I am so looking forward to going grocery shopping again! I mean I have enough food in the house but Chocolate and fruit is out and I'm so not used to not being able to have anything I want. I've been very aware being used to having all the food I want is a luxury before, but now I can feel it more.
For the love of all that is good and holy.
Don't start fights right now.
This isn't the time to be a troll or a creep or a reply guy.
This is a time to be uplifting and communal.
I'm personally only planning on starting *anything* if someone is being outrageously unacceptable.
Little things? I'm gonna take a deep breath and step away.
I know everyone is on edge, even that person that may have set off a nerve. And so, I am choosing to be kind.
Please be kind.
