Pinned toot

New intro post.

Call me hope. Currently live in seattle and work in tech. But want to do art and farm

Artistically I'm really into abstract paintings, indie games, nature photagraphy, poetry, classical music, folk/indie/post rock, arthouse films, etc. Not sure what medium I'm gonna work in yet really, new thing for me. Learning piano, painting right now.

Tech wise I enjoy homebrewing things, FOSS, privacy, etc. Reject smarthome, other corporate crap that doesn't really do that much useful, and mostly exists to sell you shit and steal your data.

Love gardening, and cooking seasonally, baking is my home turf. I brew sometimes, and enjoy coffee and tea, cocktails, and wine.

I've ended up pretty religious, go to an episcopal church, Jesus is my main dude, but align most with mystics from all paths especially hindu and animist. Dabble in magic, committed to entheogens as praxis.

Interrelated with my spiritual leanings are my political ideals of pacifism/anarchism.

So, it looks like that "you don't have to turn your hobbies into hustles" article is going around again (read it at manrepeller.com/2019/02/trap-o ) and I didn't read the comments so maybe someone already said this or something like it, but:

It isn't some weird, unexplained social pressure that makes me and thousands of other creative people try to monetize our creativity.

It's that without money we cannot survive crapitalism.

If I read a book that gives me a lot of feelings on my lunch break, I should be allowed to just go home for the day and continue feeling things instead of having to scan books, that's my opinion

I feel like this fern has a lot of potential to inspire a solarpunk necklace.

Anyone able to make it?

honestly like. the fediverse is managing to be shitter and more stressful even than Twitter rn which is really saying something

the nice thing about twitter is when you're tired of being screamed at by idiot randos you can just lock your account for a while so nobody but your friends can interact with you. the fediverse may have more fine-grained privacy options but it doesn't have that one

for the most part, your emotions and enjoyment or displeasure aren't, like, volitional. even when they're "bad" (your emotions tempt you to do harm, or you enjoy something immoral, or you feel a bigoted displeasure), trying to argue with the emotions is a waste of time.

on the other hand, thoughts, beliefs, words, actions are negotiable. if you work to counteract the bias/habit in your thoughts, words, and deeds as they occur, the emotions will change slowly as a symptom of your progress.

Thinking about adding guitar to my list of skills I dont dedicate enough time to learning because of the internet.

How essential is it to get a teacher to start? Time during normal hours and the budget is a bit tight right now and I dont want to drop piano lessons for it.

And I probably will watch rick and morty season 4, but I will absolutely do so with an aware and critical eye. :)
