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.

Great redwood forests used to grow across the whole of the Pacific Northwest. The forests which remain are only 5% of what they used to be before the 19th century.

I remember during Ferguson (back when I was a liberal) when I saw the narrative of outside anarchists coming in to sow chaos and I was really confused because I had only recently seen my first introduction to anarchists as a real group of people with a rational consistent ideology, an article about Portland Anarchist Road Care

The article struck me because they had talked about how anarchists want to empower communities to take over the roles of the government voluntarily so that the government isn’t needed anymore, and I had never considered that angle before (but wasn’t convinced enough to look into it). So the illusion of “anarchists” as just deluded teens trying to start fires and cause chaos and hurt people with absolutely no goal in mind was broken, and I just thought “No, why would anarchists do that? Why would anyone do that? No actual person wants chaos for no reason”

I didn’t think about anarchism again for like 2 + 1/2 years after that, but in hindsight it’s amazing how much recognizing anarchism as a coherent political philosophy can immunize you from the state’s narratives about them

thinkin about ghost plants

Monotropa uniflora - it grows white and can grow in darkness cause its a PARASITE and it uses fungus in the soil as a host to receive nutrients because it does not do photosynthesis on its own

im at the police station. im at the bonfire. im at the combination police station/bonfire

i've been hauling giant lumber slabs all weekend, and i'm pretty sure i've pulled something in my shoulder. they should make for some nice tables, though

i've spent the past 3 days hauling wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow of mulch uphill. over 30 cubic yards. my limbs feel like they're about to fall off.

hauling wheelbarrows of mulch uphill is tiring work (selfie ec)
