I don't think I ever did this back when I first joined, so here's a little #introduction
I'm Squiddy (he/him), I'm an engineering student who would rather bake bread than do engineering schoolwork, and I've really interested in things like social ecology lately, seeing as the world isn't doing so great. I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for Bionicle and The Elder Scrolls, and I will readily become a huge lore nerd in something if given the chance. Nice to meet you!
The account of the Assam Police has been suspend from this instance.
We decided that we will not welcome cops on this instance, and we encourage the rest of the fediverse to do the same.
Following multiple reports, we decided that it's more important that our community feels safe and in security, than to be a platform for official communication.
Thank you !

I really wish I read this one when I was first coming to anarchism. I was daunted by the length, but didn't realize Berkman wrote 'What is Communist Anarchism?' in plain language, with the intention of making it understandable to anyone (not to mention easily translatable) #OurReads
The secret goal of Mastodon is to create a majority-anarchist environment such that any individual who joins will be exposed to those ideas to the extent that they're properly explained and normalized to them, then occasionally bring in new batches of people with enough time in between for the old batch to be subsumed into the antiauthoritarian mindset before the new batch arrives
It's all part of our Cultural Anarchist agenda, you see
food / how to eat on a budget
been watching/reading a lot of content about eating on a budget. it all boils down to:
* stop buying prepared food
* make everything from scratch
* already have access to a gourmet kitchen
* spend hours the day before prepping food doing the pre-prep
* wake up at first light and begin cooking
* spend 4 hours per meal making every ingredient
this should leave 4 hours for cleaning the kitchen and doing the pre-prep for the next day. This leaves a whole 8 hours to sleep and enjoy your meals
congrats you saved $5!
Me: Im getting into gardening lately
Colleague: You can make a lot of money landscaping you know
Me: No I mean like fruit and veg
C: Ah to sell?
Me: No for me and to give away to my neighbours
C: So how are you making money from it?
Me: No, its a hobby and a way to provide for people
C: Yeah but you should really be thinking how to monetise it
Me: I dont think I can continue to talk to you anymore
