Idea: rot13 CW toots to give people a second chance not to read harmful content
wait wtf Brave is a steampunk, non-Earth fantasy!
You can be marginalized and still have white privilege. Always remember that. Acknowledging it does not negate your marginalizations.
"I left Mastodon yesterday"
In fine Mastodon storming-off tradition, I've written a flipping long Medium post.
I have a new book out! Demon's Lure, about a girl and her demon. Or a demon and its girl, maybe. It's complicated.
Also, not a romance. This is not the sort of demon you take home to mom. This is the sort of demon you keep far away from everyone you care about to ensure it doesn't torture them to death.
anger towards oppressors / those in an oppressing class is... valid and good actually.
maybe take a breathe and be more understanding of your social privileges and how you benefit from things or even contribute to harm of others instead of trying to tell vulnerable people to calm down
I'm really sorry but this is a begging post Show more
I'm embarrassed to do this, esp since I see people in far more need than me posting everyday
This isn't even a necessity but the annual bill for my fiction website ( http://firebird-fiction.com/ ) is due 13th June & I'm in a tight spot which while it's under control (mostly) leaves me unable to pay the $103.20 bill & I don't want to lose it
What I need is kind peeps to either suggest a cheaper host or drop money on my ko-fi https://ko-fi.com/A822KV9 please
I mostly write #Poetry.
I'm powered by cane since my Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis in '16.
I'm 32 and also have mobility issues, GAD, Depression, Chronic Pain & Fatigue.

Here's the coldest take you'll get today and then I'm gonna stop on this for today cause I got shit to do:
If you think that there are more attacks on white people here, then you've got a humongous perception issue.
I'm gonna use this space to request that y'all leave some recommendations of POC users - particularly outspoken ones - that people should follow (if they are ok with it.) Most people see @Are0h around but there are so many more POC on this platform than just him.

count how many times you step up or down in a day
look at how far you'd have to go to avoid the step (or how much time you'd have to spend waiting for someone to put down a ramp/lift)
count how many feet you travel over sidewalk/pavement that's so uneven you couldn't roll over it
I think I've been making a lot more mistakes and typos than usual and this terrifies me, tbh
Period reminder that nothing you post on Mastodon is private: your admins and mods can see everything.
If you need to share sensitive information with someone, it's best to go on a service that encrypts your messages.
Know your admins and avoid instances whose staff you can't trust!
If you love the look of Zebra Mildliners (or other pastel highlighters), please read this before purchasing them: https://www.jetpens.com/blog/pastel-highlighters-a-comprehensive-guide/pt/947
Mildliners smear pen ink, so check what type of pens you like to write with, specially if you plan on using them to highlight class notes etc.
Otherwise, they're best suited to highlighting printed text, or to be used as markers.
it's a shame that Google Assistant doesn't let you set your names pronunciation with IPA
why is there no official plaid shirt yet
PSA: don't forget, your instance moderators need you to help by reporting anything that you think might violate the rules!
Reporting something doesn't automatically penalize anyone, so *you* don't need to worry about whether something is really actionable.
That's *our* job as moderators! All *you* need to do is help make sure we don't miss things by reporting them.
Plan With Me, June 2018 Show more
Eventually I might try using weeklies to track how I spent my time, but it's still tricky.
The Daily pages are where the real To-Do lists go, as well as my schedule for the day. I'm trying to color-code tasks using square Post-Its (this also allows me to be as detailed as I need).
Lastly, erasable pens and highlighters are extremely helpful. It seems gimmicky until you find yourself depending on them. xD
