Let's see, what should I put in an #introduction?
I'm in my thirties, live in #Cologne, #Germany, and like #birds and #nature and #fantasy #writing and #art. I run an occasional #RPG round, the system is #TDE (English version of the German #DSA)
I'm a #programmer, but I don't talk about tech here much and definitely don't prosetylize about OS or programming language choice.
Stuff I mention here includes #FlightRising and #bulletjournal.
I'm on the #asexual spectrum. Pronoun she or they.
CBT, therapy (critique) Show more
While it isn't a technique my therapist uses, I've long been a bit wary of CBT as my tendency to over-logic things really interferes with my ability to process emotions--and it's the emotions I most need to work on. So this was an interesting read: https://thetetrapodinsufferable.wordpress.com/2019/05/22/its-not-you-its-cbt-on-behaving-maladaptively/
"Refusing to reprogram, or insisting that we need to collectively restructure as a society before I could ever do that effectively, is the most maladaptive (and vital) response there is."

This deck seems to be very convinced right now that I'm too pessimistic. XD

Well, I asked about advice on creativity and did a WTF spread, and...
the problem: 9 of wands reversed (failure, defensiveness, paranoia) + knight of wands (anger, ego frustration, pessimism)
Real: Chariot reversed (aggression, self-doubt, defeat, loss of control)
Wrong: page of wands reversed (laziness, pessimism, lack of focus, arrogance)
Where do I need more info: Devil reversed (detachment, freedom, awareness, vulnerability)
What can I do: Emperor (power, structure, domination, success)
I'm thinking about starting a small video tutorial series for generative art/creative coding beginners. But I can't come up with a good name. Could you help me out and vote/suggest new ones here? https://www.allourideas.org/genartvids
You might remember that due to my occasional inability to regulate how much work I do or to feed myself, I was given a new manager ... my cat.
The rules are, I eat when he wants to eat. I break when he wants to break.
Today, he can be your manager too. I'll time-stamp each of his management moments so you can follow along in your timezone.
