Pinned toot

I’m unabashedly proud of something I’ve made. “Take On Me” is the best thing I’ve ever written.

It’s a story about love, grief, food, music, and the people who accept you exactly as you are.

And now it’s not just mine anymore, it’s yours, too.

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 neutral good paladin and i am friends with chaos. systems have their uses, but my moral code will always take precedence.

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 newsletter i send out monthly, and keep various trello boards full of curricula i design for myself.

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

gonna find some stuff on bandcamp today. looking forward to finding some good working music.

my brain is still fixated on leveraging cardboard for building materials.

i've got some shelves and drawers planned in my head. i was gonna spend money on plastic containers, but now all i need is more masking tape and glue.

Reminder that I have free slots available for proofreading and checking CVs and cover letters!

If you're looking for a job and would benefit from an extra pair of eyes or feel like your CV could use some work but aren't sure where to start, feel free to DM me.

No charge but if you like, you can make a donation to Black Visions Collective or your local bail fund.

i have easy access to a lot of cardboard. i need a couple short bookshelves and a way to make a big cabinet more segmented.

plans are afoot.

kinda itching to watch Steven Universe again. i don't think i've seen any of season 5 and didn't see the movie.

unfortunately, getting a hold of those two are proving a little pricey considering i wouldn't have a physical copy.

So, techies, I'm going to remind you of this:

Not everything is a "tech" problem.

That runs counter to our experiences, our training, and our industry, I know.

Hang back; there are people out there who do amazing things without us. Listen to them.

i am having coffee this morning. sipping slowly. we'll see how this goes.

i'm tempted to alias npm run apollo:generate to biggenerator.

Sort, process, collate, enjoy

The sorting and cataloging of my stuff has begun. We've got to bring everything home from the storage unit (aka stuff I haven't seen in 3 years) and I want to have the

i suspect that, because of how i use masto, i could set up an offline social media tool of some kind and post to it and not feel like i lost anything.

i do enjoy interacting with folks and reading others' stuff, but when it comes to what i put out, it's honestly mostly for my own record and to get the thought down.

the only reason i don't do an offline thing is because i do get response from folks telling me i'm useful in the world, which is really my only goal in life. i do strive to be of use in some way.

Slaying Dragons In Notepad
