PSA my memory is terrible and i'm worried i've tried to follow locked accounts multiple times 

so, over the past couple days i tried to follow a couple of folks that i was surprised i didn't already follow, and realized their accounts were locked after i clicked the follow button and saw the timer.

if you have your account locked and i have tried to follow you multiple times i am sorry!

my memory is honestly terrible and after i try to follow someone who is locked i only realize if it went through if i start seeing them on my home feed.

i'm never going to hold it against someone if they want to keep their feed private! i just honestly don't remember bc i try to follow a lot of folks who make posts im interested in and am bad at keeping track

if you're comfortable letting me know i did this (so i don't try to do it again) you're more than welcome to!

i'm going to try to pay more attention as well in the future!

today i'm listening to be steadwell

and it just occurred to me that Greens is the adorable joyful queer solarpunk song we all deserve:

youtube.com/watch?v=-3uprO4hBP

or

open.spotify.com/track/78ZbxZU

(if you prefer a more polished version... but she is SO cute in the youtube video)

i was listening to be steadwell and remembered this place exists and was happy to remember it

lately ive been really feeling "fix it" fics

beep boop internalized stuff about sex work alert (also hey whats up) 

currently in a bit of a Spot financially and considering giving cam work a go. its really the only 'online only' job i can see picking up that i could imagine having any fun with, but it also is really making me question myself and evaluate how i really feel about it. if i can handle that kind of attention.

tattoos n dudes 

yesterday i got a new tattoo and spent the entire time chatting with the artist about zombie media and sci fi / dystopian stuff.

i was so nervous because i know some dude tattoo artists can be major creeps but this guy was honestly so good! i'm so weirdly impressed because i cant actually remember the last time i had such a long pleasant conversation w a cis straight guy. we even talked about trans stuff successfully w/o it getting too weird

asking for money, mental health, incredibly negative 

I haven't left the house and have hardly left the bed or eaten in 3 days. I'm losing all hope that I'll be able to survive under capitalism or be happy under any system. I really really don't know what I'm going to do, materially

My ko-fi is linked in my bio and my pinned post. I don't know if it'll do anything other than delay the inevitable, but if you're so inclined I would appreciate a little help. Thank you, I love you all

probably a rehash of other conversations abt how online security is inaccessible 

its really unfortunate that most of the time the answer to the question of "how can I secure my data" is still ultimately "host it on your own server"

which a) costs money and b) requires a certain level of tech knowledge (unless you're willing to spend even more money to use a server provider who then might have a certain amount of access if you don't have the tech knowledge / experience with legalese to interpret their privacy policy / encryption methods)

garden updates + a hot tip about keeping cats from wreckign your plants 

if youre curious the plants here include: a variety of succulents, some very mangled african violets that my cats chewed up despite us having read that they usually don't like to chew fuzzy leaves, sweet peppers, and marijuana in the clear plastic containers. I'm still really surprised that one of them shot up so fast, I planted them very recently.

garden updates + a hot tip about keeping cats from wreckign your plants 

we moved at the start of may and since then my little germination stations have evolved considerably!!

turns out that carpet tape is strong enough to keep my cats from being able to bat the containers down, so as long as they are covered they are safe!

Political Nihilism has never achieved anything and offers nothing to anyone. Likewise a "ruthless critique of everything existing" only achieves political inertia and smug satisfaction in armchair theorists as the world around them falls apart. How comfortable it is to criticise everyone else for trying to make the world a better place in which we find it, and how paralysing it must be to be afraid of having the same done to you. If you're not making mistakes you're not making anything.

so I've been listening to y'all bitch and moan about XR and Earth Strike and quite frankly, I agree with you. So I've been drafting up a proposal for a loose network of activists (united by shared principles rather than with any official structure, think antifa) to work alongside such groups to try and make sure the climate movement isn't dissolved or crushed, and I've posted it as a page in the wiki. Please give it a read and share it if you like it, trynna get other propaganda stuff based around its principles on the go too
