Sorry that ~90% of my toots have to do with Crippling Anxiety & Depression™

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.

What dedicated online Solarpunk communities are there?
(low-key tooting this because of @Wewereseeds and @socalledunitedstates)

There's here
Reddit (isn't it kinda dead there?)
Tumblr (have they persisted?)
At least 2 Facebook groups
A Discord (apparently?)
Who am I missing?

You ever interact with a Masto user so much and see them on your timelines so often that you don't realize you're not following them?
My bad. :sweat_smile_ms:

I was tired at 8:30 pm, I went to bed but stayed awake. It's now 11:30 pm and I am not tired anymore. Ugh.

boost this and I'll assign you an rpg trinket* until I can't think of any more trinkets**

* a simple item lightly touched by mystery

**as above, but plural

Also, an ongoing worry that the less-melanated in the group are going to be terrible about it. Pessimistic? Maybe. Paranoid? Misplaced? Probably not.

I'm working on a variation of the Sun Elves for the 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.

Saw this in a Solarpunk group and someone said it could be the seed to start an epic saga. I present it here as an offering to the writers: please take it and make a Solarpunk masterpiece.

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. 💚

Does anyone here watch The Dragon Prince because i just finished season 2 and I have a mighty need to talk about it.

I need to learn how to dance and not just hold a beat.

I just told my friend how I spent my day yesterday and she said it was very "me". What would the most "you" day look like? How would you spend it? (sorry for the awkward phrasing)

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.

If you wear glasses, are they clean? Take a moment and clean them up so you can see a little better.
