Hey, I'm Yvonne and I have no idea how anything works here. 😅 Been interested in Mastodon for some time (though the tumblr-pocalypse brought me to this instance) and I really love Solarpunk ideals
28 y.o, Black, bi, designer/developer, also into upcycling, crafting, sewing, DIY, permaculture, anime and animation, tech, music, and more that I can't think of right now.
I'm working on a variation of the Sun Elves for the #DnD campaign that I'm in and my bf is running. Long story short, I am making them based off of sub-Saharan Africa in terms of culture and appearance (with Solarpunk elements). Everytime I think about it I get pretty jazzed, but trying to do a write-up is overwhelming because I have to turn all my abstract ideas into something solid and comprehensible. Can't I just show everyone my Pinterest board and call it a day?
Still livid that housekeeping, sewing, tailoring, laundry and other essential daily fucking tasks have been so devalued. We all objectively suck at doing them now. Even the people we pay to do it for us are diminished as the skilled workers they are. And we've relegated others doing those tasks for and with you as a deeply economically restrictive thing. This separates those that are good at a task and those that benefit from the task into categories deeply at odds with each other.

Sunbeam City is growing and we now have a Pleroma instance!
It is under the governance of the SBC co-operative, so if you want to try out Pleroma in a safe and friendly environment, give it a whirl! I will be closing registration at sunbeam.city for a minimum of two weeks to encourage people to sign up.
It makes me uncomfortable how people have adopted corporate language when talking about themselves on the internet. You are not a corporation or a persona. You are a whole person.
You don't have a "brand" – you have passions and interests. You don't "create content" – you share thoughts, words, ideas, knowledge, and a whole galaxy of other things.
There are plenty of people out there who want to categorise you and put you in a box. Don't help them to do this.
You're so much more than that. 💚

I'm starting to get the feeling that I need the time and space and safety to have a potentially explosive breakdown. Don't think that's gonna happen ever. Time to figure out a plan B.
Thank you, Terra, I'm here reporting on this month’s emotional collective landscape. There has been a flood of depression in large proportions of the Pacific Northwest Area. We are having reports sent in now, via live chatroom network, depicting both waist, stomach, and even neck height depressive waves. We remind viewers that the Pain/Chill Factor tonight is +3. As depression does not follow the laws of the physical fluids, it does depend upon the individual what neck height means to them. But consistent reports of feeling “bogged down”, as if “running through water”, or “quite flooded actually” in their Phycho-Meterological Index.
We have also been recieving tangential report of a Large Anxiety Front coming in from the North.
When you're on your morning commute, you'll want to look for a gnawing existential hunger, an aching in one's gut, and, reportedly "like my bones are made of sandpaper". Wow.
We'll be updating you as the weather changes, at 9.
lewd hypothetical question Show more
Question (that probably won't be answered because who even asks this?): if you lived in an IC or something similar that had a designated place where one could choose to have sex or do sex-adjacent stuff with one or more individuals, would you utilize it? Of course this is assuming that the premises was meticulously cleaned after each encounter.
Goodness why am I even asking this?
