"I want to sing like the birds sing, not worrying about who hears or what they think." -- Rumi ๐Ÿฆ

Hello, I am a massive emotional wreck today.

I just moved to a new country, after building a home with my ex-partner for 9 years. I left all of my local community behind, because my US work visa ran out & my mental health is too poor to keep working. I feel so alone, and without a home or a direction.

Seeking support & kindness. ๐Ÿ’™

Kindly take a side. ๐ŸŠ

Today I fly to Vancouver. I'm going to live there now.

..My AirBNB host cancelled on me *last night*, so I'm scrambling to find somewhere to stay last-minute.

siiiiggghh

Continuing to post this because I still do not have anywhere to live other than back with my parents.

Hi my name is Hearth and I'm a trans woman in Florida.

My lease is up at the end of the month and I'm trying desperately to find work and somewhere to live. If you know of someone or somewhere with space, so I don't end up with family. If you have anything, please let me know!

If anyone knows somewhere that might be hiring, preferably remote, I have a ton of experience in tech and will gladly apply.

Dear corporations: "Yes" and "Not Now" are insufficient options.

internal family systems 

Mediated a pretty deep-seated argument between two parts this morning. It went really well! They were both able to empathize & understand each other's position, and are both open to cooperating to try to resolve the underlying issue.

It's amazing how much my coding habits have changed over the years. I used to be super into NodeJS[1] and npm -- I have hundreds of modules on it.

[1] I still use NodeJS for my own lil projects, but I publish code a lot less now.

Kinda excited for microsoft to roll out mandatory 2FA for all npm users. It's a good excuse to stop using npm.

Wow, surprisingly well today. I followed along with Z's "Thinness vs Thickness Mimicry Exercise"[1] and it *really* helped be get into "the zone".

I can only do this voice for very brief little prefab sentences. For "endurance talking", I still find myself sounding more nasal-y and deeper, like this: kira.solar/pub/trans-voice/202

Dark pattern: websites that detect when you move the mouse out of the html body and use that as a cue to pop up a modal to try and pull you back in.

New fallacy/antipattern of mine:

"Picking low-hanging fruit during a firestorm."

It's when you focus on doing easy / obvious work that's accessible and maybe even fun to do, while avoiding big scary challenging work that you haven't even begun to figure out how to do or solve yet.

Interested in other name suggestions!
