mental health 

My least favourite part of depression & dissociation is the way that they make me lose interest in my own life.

Like, right now, this doesn't even FEEL LIKE my life -- it's someone else's. And that feels really sad to me, because I still have all of these memories of lots of times when I really enjoyed engaging with my life. I miss myself, if that makes sense.

Reminder that it's okay to be a generalist; knowing how to do a bunch of different things in different areas because those things interest you is a delightful way to interact with the world. don't feel like you have to apologize for having a thirst that can be quenched at multiple wells

abusive family patterns (trick) 

It helps me remind myself that I'm not going crazy, but that my own reality & experience is being actively dismantled by others.

abusive family patterns (trick) 

There's a handy acronym that I've built for myself to help me spot toxic behaviours: DDLIM.

Denial
Dismissiveness
Lack of empathy
Ignoring
Minimizing

"Do the time warp" was a meme that was popular on DeviantArt in 2008.
At the time I only had the first 4 poses. Then later I added the 5th, and today the 6th.

bio-family abusiveness 

Setting boundaries with bio-family. Not that I expect them to be respected, but it feels important to me to state what I am & am not ok with regardless.

cool bash shell trick 

You can use Alt+. to insert the last used parameter into bash!

e.g.
$ mkdir audio
$ cd |

Where | is your cursor. Now when you hit Alt+., it'll fill in 'audio'!

You can keep pressing Alt+. repeatedly to cycle through older parameters, too.

abusive family patterns 

Here is a family social pattern around "support" that I truly despise & that also has deep crazy-making potential energy:

Family Member(FM): *suddenly does a thing "for" you that they consider support*

Me: uhm, this isn't what I need. But, it would really help me if--

FM: oh wow ok fine, here I am trying to help, and this is what I get? wow. I don't even know why I try.

This can also play out as me making a specific support request, and them just doing their own thing that isn't what I asked for, and then similarly exploding when I don't accept it b/c it's not what I want.

degrowth 

"Have you encountered this term, dΓ©pense? There’s always this surplus of potential energy, and in a growth economy the prevailing attitude would demand that you use that surplus energy to do something like refurbish your house, decorate and add value to it - or even take up a new hobby and spend money on something frivolous. DΓ©pense runs counter to that narrative and says actually what you should do with your excess energy is waste itβ€”but waste it in ways that are culturally and socially enriching. So if we went on a walk into a forest, that would be an example of dΓ©pense because we haven’t grown the economy in any way."
