Unless you have a very good reason not to, or are publicly known anyway, there is really no need for you to use your real name or photo online.

Back in the 90s when i first discovered the internet, this was common knowledge. Nobody used their real name on forums or share personal information without considering the consequences. Those few who did were promptly told that's a bad idea.

It seems somehow we unlearned this, right when corporations started monetizing that information.

someone took the key to room where I left my stuff and now I can't get to them 😢


compared to that, this funeral today was very sad. barely anyone showed up (and tbh, if he hadn't been family, i'm not sure i would have made the time either - which makes me feel all sorts of awful).

one of the most touching moments of any funeral i've ever been to was when the burial & service was done, the trumpet player climbed to the highest spot of the cemetery and played a song by themselves. there was a fog and the sound echoed over the hills a little and it was all very haunting.

People who can just get up even though it is warm under the blankets but cold in the room are too powerful.
Me? I live under the blankets now.

how do people write CVs and personal statements and cover letters for (student) jobs that are completely unrelated to their field of study

Petrichor, that fresh aroma you can smell after the rain, is caused by a little molecule called geosmin. The name literally means "earth smell." It's produced by soil bacteria and gives an earthy flavour to beets.

Humans are extremely sensitive to this scent – much, much more sensitive than sharks are to blood. Some think we evolved that way to find fresh drinking water after droughts.

grape picking, part two + a cat 


this is an excellent young cat, very fond of petting

I went looking for some black pants for the funeral. I thought I had some old ones, but instead I found mum's old dress pants that fit me well - in just the style I've wanted for a while
