Just got my first Tusky push notification ever

@hauntedlatte It's tangent to your request, but might also be interesting for folks following your thread:โ€‰yourfirstpr.github.io/ tries to focus on people willing to start with FOSS but without knowledge of what to do.

Folks who are replying with big high-profile projects: that's fine and all but I know about these, as I think most people on here probably do.

I'd really like to hear about some smaller projects that I *don't* hear about all the time, especially if they are doing some social good.

What are some worthy open source projects to contribute to?

(besides Masto obvi)

In case y'all didn't hear, the Girl Scouts of America are now starting to give out Cyber security badges out that girls can earn while they learn to be the next best thing in tech.
Fuck yeah girls scouts.

Just got the "TV is available" phone notification for casting to a TV... I'm at a bus stop. I'm pretty sure it's the Trimet tracker TV.

Seeing our toot.cat admins @polymerwitch and @cyrinsong speak at Open Source Bridge right now ๐Ÿ™‹

Tweeted about this last night but I'm still thinking about the fact that I haven't given a tech talk/workshop since college, and why that is..

Despite having a CS degree I feel like an outsider and it sucks. I want to overcome anxiety and be recognized in my community and give talks and help to make the world better.

I have a theory that my body needs about 8.5-9 hours of sleep per night to function the best. But when I complain about being tired I'm usually met with "oh you got 7.5??? wow I wish I got that much"

Like does everyone else just jump out of bed after 6 hours of sleep and hit the ground running? (I know the answer is no but it feels like it sometimes)

Will I have a better day today? WHO KNOWS

Hi I'm really stressed lately and it's making me incredibly impatient with others, how do I stop letting my stress control me

Still thinking about the amazing weekend I had. Managed to attend a BBQ, see Wonder Woman, MC my second Monsterhearts session, *and* gain >10 levels in Overwatch. Basically perfect.

there is almost definitely a correlation between how many meetings I have in a day and how my self-esteem is doing
