Pinned oot

I need to update my pinned 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.

Went and harvested the herbs from the garden before the frost we're supposed to get tonight. Peppermint, rosemary, sage, oregano, mint, parsely, coriander, fennel, and some others I don't recognize

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.

From the garden: a handful of meager potatoes, exactly one properly-shaped -- albeit minuscule -- beet, and a whole lot of beet greens

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

Create your own 2020 aesthetic:

• choose a random word
• append "-core" to the end of it
• collect a bunch of random stuff which is vaguely related to the random word
• decorate and/or dress up

Aesthetic!!

I think the hard/soft sci-fi distinction is salvageable if we get specific about *which* science the sci-fi is hard or soft for, and also acknowledge that a lot of "hard sci-fi" has the social science consistency of cotton candy

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.

I *am* nonbinary. I *identify* as a bitter old man who had his heart broken in Catalonia 1936 (things haven't felt right since),

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.
