Pinned toot

tl;dr - i'm a , , programmer from my beloved NJ. i write & , play & . i like , , & . i'm older than most of you.

---------

i run lunastationquarterly.com, a speculative lit mag for women-identified authors.

i run selfcare.tech & its bots for those that need self care resources.

i do a LOT of other things (check the pins and links on my profile).

my alt is @pixelpaperyarn which i use for various writing talk and announcements.

---------

i show my learning process, hopefully demystifying how the tech industry works. i chat about the ideas i have that i don't have time to manifest.

i'm a lawful good paladin, yet i am friends with chaos. lawful doesn't always mean "nice" nor does it mean following laws that break my moral code.

i believe in kindness and do my best to help when i can.

i do a LOT of things, many of which are meant to be helpful to other developers and some just because i love doing them.

i've designed 2 different card decks, have a couple newsletters i send out monthly, and keep various trello boards full of curricula i design for myself.

details on all this stuff (and more!) are here:

starting my Beatles catalog listen through this evening.

we start off with Please Please Me, chock a block full of songs they honed to a fine polish playing the clubs of Hamburg.

while this could be a bland bunch of tunes (especially by today's standards) there's a raw energy to them as they growl their way through the fourteen tracks.

This rings so very true to me, and it's strikingly useful in my ongoing attempts to explain how boundaries aren't rules. It's actually about emotional independence, healthy separation so we can know and love both ourselved and others.

had to run out to the store and was reminded it's a holiday weekend for lots of folks. maybe sometime in the next year i'll get some time off. i've gotten used to no vacation after 2 years but admit it would be nice to have again.

Most of the sites I played with on the internet got boring. What are you guys doing today? Anything entertaining? What is the most entertaining thing you have to look at RIGHT NOW?

Review your todo lists. Is there something you no longer need to do?

The princess kicked off her shoes. Her jewelry followed, sinking into the sand.

Her tiara was tossed aside next. Her delicate embroidered veils fluttered away.

The waves lapped at her toes as she sang an old song her mother had taught her, wrapped in a simple, passed down fur shawl.

Up in the castle, attendants searched desperately, unaware of the voices rising from the sea, welcoming home the granddaughter of their stolen Queen.

tired of reading princesses talking like 20th century feminists that somehow got dropped into a novel, and not like young women trying desperately to navigate and reconcile their desires and worldviews in a time when the implications and expectations of both lay largely beyond their control

I'm glad books are readily & widely distributed in bookstores & libraries everywhere. I'd hate for them to be locked behind some kind of gated subscription service like current shows, series, & movies.

Watch out 'cause I'm vicious
And I'm not asking for forgiveness
Yeah I'll make you go ballistic
Your torture is my business
And I won't leave a witness
