I need to update my pinned #introduction post now that I know I'm trans. Hey, I'm Squiddy (she/they), an engineering student who's started working at a bakery instead of doing engineering schoolwork. I'm really interested in learning more about permaculture and social ecology, and even more importantly, putting their principles into practice. I move closer towards anarcho-communism with every passing day.
And here they all are, hung up to dry
For real though, if you want to write stories of any kind, watch bad movies. Pick them apart like broken clocks and look at all the things that don't work, frustrate you, or bother you.
You can learn a lot from watching terrible movies. It's easier to spot all the things that don't work.
I mean, unless you're watching a movie like The Last Airbender, where so many things don't work that you start to lose count.
I'm still salty that we have multiple cartoons now where there's lesbians kissing and dating openly but with gay male couples the most I can get is chaste hand holding
just so everyone is aware, husky, the pleroma/mastodon app for android, was originally forked from tusky to make it possible to browse gab again, something tusky had made impossible. whatever nice features it has added since then, i would ask you to consider if using the nazi app made for browsing the nazi website by nazis is something you want to do
something that doesn't get said enough is landlords are fucking terrible for houses.
I've lived in rental properties both as a renter and home "owner." There are always big repairs that the landlord was putting off. Often they're even a danger to people living in the house. Sometimes it's even basic maintenance shit that the landlord fails to do that causes bigger problems.
They do it bc they don't live there. Simple as that.
It is summer, which means some people will probably get sunburn. It can happen easily, and it can be pretty uncomfortable. Aloe gel can be very soothing though (for other minor burns too), so here’s a little thread about how you can safely take a little from a houseplant.
Aloe plants are super easy to grow too. This charming lady lives under my desk lamp with her 7 daughters.
Engineering student, leftist wannabe, and cephalopod fan. She/they.
