Ran out of fuel partway through cutting the air pipe for the forge.

I'm building a set of tools, mostly from scratch, if you want to follow along.

The Ko-Fi funds this activity, and your boosts and shares keep me fed.

Today, I pushed the "purchase" button on something my family needed without a huge struggle against resource scarcity anxiety and panic.

The money was in the account.
It was budgeted and then used.
It felt good to fulfill a need without fear.

This freedom from fear is due primarily to the support that you, denizens of the fediverse, have provided us.

Today has a small victory, and we're still just getting through breakfast.

I am privileged to be here,
often overwhelmed by your outpouring of support,
and only mildly confused by the jorts and other memes.

We are ever so thankful for everyone expressing interest and contributing time, knowledge, or some other resource to our ongoing projects or daily survival needs.

You are helping us try to build better ways of living.

Again, thank you.

Had a few quiet moments today,
and got these to share.

Also up on Ko-Fi, which is where all the rest go when we have captioning spoons.

Published a bit on Medium about my childhood.

medium.com/@jakimfett/i-grew-u

I grew up in a cult.

My parents lovingly attempted to brainwash me.

The entire family was in on it.

I've maintained personas, crafted as carefully as my neurodivergent observations can make them, that give people what they need/want to hear to *stop bothering me*.

Because, remember, at the end of the day, we just want to be left alone so we can build stuff.

Interrupt at your peril.
