All right, let's try this #Introductions thing.
Hi, I'm Terrana, and I'm a dragon.
I enjoy video games, particularly I with a building/automation theme. Factorio and modded Minecraft are favourites.
I enjoy science fiction and particular kinds of fantasy, particularly with a technical focus.
I'm an amateur writer but I have problems staying focused on projects.
I develop software and have Opinions about data security.
I like tabletop RPGs but have had no luck in finding one to join, so I GM.

The real goal is never to dip into that emergency energy because of how much it costs to use. If I have to do it, there is *no* daily energy until it recovers. Everything comes out of medium-term.
This is just how I look at things. I'd be curious to hear about how some of you approach these problems.
Introspection, long (3/4)
Then there's the medium-term energy. If I draw from it, I am going to have less of it to use tomorrow and the day after. Not drawing from it for three days seems to refill it for me, and avoiding using it on daily things like my job is a struggle.
Finally, there's the emergency energy. When the other two are gone and something *needs* to be done, this is where it comes from. Using it comes with a steep price and I'm likely to be wiped out for a week afterwards.
Introspection, long (2/4)
I find I have three wells of energy I can use, or perhaps three different level marks on a single well.
There's the daily energy, "you can do this much today, use it or lose it." Having this is what means spoon theory doesn't fully apply to me. The amount varies, but I can count on being able to get a certain amount of things done without affecting myself too badly tomorrow. This is the energy for basic personal maintenance, moving around, some of my day job's hours.

You've probably heard of spoon theory. If you haven't, I do recommend reading about it. I'm not disabled, so it doesn't completely apply to me, but I have found that sort of thinking helpful in trying to find enough energy to get everything I want to done.
The ultimate goal is impossible, of course. I will never have the energy to be able to give 100% effort 100% of the time. Biology just doesn't work that way. But I've made some useful observations while trying.

Hey devs this is an important announcement. I will be working with popular leftist youtuber Noncompete to create a peertue instance and I am looking for people to help me out. If you have any experience working with peertube or UI design or want to help shoot me a dm!
We are going to make something that can really have a shot at combating youtube and I think now might be a tipping point for us to make a big push.
your regular reminder that censoring words l*ke th*s is actively counterproductive because it bypasses the filters that people set up for themselves
to take an innocuous example, if i use filters to block the word "orange", and you write "or*nge", you have now ensured that i will see a post that i have explicitly tried to get out of my timeline
