don't trust anyone who refers to themselves as a:
- "taxpayer"
- "patriot"
- "gamer"
- "garfield"

Do you ever feel as *intensely* in love as you do when you're a teenager again?

I'd love to feel that burning, passionate romantic positivity for another person but with the added frame of gained wisdom.

Think I've had several layers of guards up for so long that I've denied myself this end of the emotional range

Good reminder, when you've met one autistic person, you've met one autistic person.

Whilst we may have similarities, we're not a monolith or mono-culture, we all have different ideas, thoughts and needs and it'd be good if you recognise that and treat us accordingly. Thank you.

What it means when I fav stuff: 

- I like this
- You are heard
- I like you, specifically, and will fav most of your stuff to let you know I'm listening
- I understood you, but I don't have a good response

on neutral science:

if it has an impact it is not neutral.
depending on the social circumstances it will have different impacts.

We must admit this.
We must learn to underatand its impacts and act acordingly.

when it is aplied to an economy, it will have impact of real resources effecting peoples lifes.

Bigotry isn't ok just because it's directed at a horrible person. Be careful about who you're hurting in the process

a take 

if you think homeless people are gross you're never allowed to talk about ending capitalism or "eating the rich" ever again

"ethical" commercialization of self under capitalism?, alternatives query, plzboost? 

I've a few reservations about using Medium/Patreon as platforms, which I've seen echo'd on the fediverse in general.

What is/are the alternative(s)?
Who is successfully using a self-publishing platform, and do you recommend your platform for episodic or series type content?

Definitely need text publishing, hopefully audio/video content, ideally tar/zip/7z uploads as well?

Suggestions?

I was doing my morning exercise while sick with a cold that weakened me and made me feel off, joking that my body was saying “hey, this is weird, but alright”.

A wise friend noted to me that brains do that too. External problems in our lives make it hard to push through but our brains want to do it anyway, roll with the stress.

It made me think—maybe it’s okay and right to let our bodies and our souls both rest. Acknowledge that it’s hard. Tap out if we need to, and love ourselves. ❤️

If that doesn’t work, I’m just gonna continue wistfully looking at modded consoles on Etsy, no biggie.

I’d like to get a modded GBA down the track, but they’re pretty pricey, so I’m gonna try and save up a bit.

Anyway, here’s something I don’t really have the money for that I’m still going to quietly admire.

I’m also predictably hype for Sword and Shield; might pre-order it in the place of something I’ve already PO’d.
