I made another puppet! Meet Drake!

i first came out a month before the election, and when november rolled around was one of the scariest months of my life. i felt trapped between a rock and a hard place: risk my life being out, or hurt myself going back in the closet.

the thing that kept me out, kept me transitioning, was knowing that if i walked proud others might see it as still an option

being obviously trans is like being a lighthouse, so that others starting their journey can see a path forward

It's interesting to me that "emoticon" and "emoji" look so similar but are etymologically unrelated.

"emoticon" - "emotion" + "icon"

"emoji" - 絵 ("e", meaning "picture" or "art") + 文字 ("moji", meaning "(written) character" or "kana")

Oh hey I made a thing in the past two days.

Brooklyn Nine Nine got cancelled. I can’t bear the thought of Andy Samberg being sad :( We cry together pals

Happy Monday, folks.

I find setting my intentions for the day really helps. If I know what I intend for the day, I can pace myself a lot easier which really helps in maintaining my self care on a day to day basis.

There's always going to be something that needs to be done, but you don't have to do it all at once.

"Leave politics out of tech."

People build tech. People use tech. You cannot have tech without people. So, yes, people will be bringing politics, rights, and representation into tech with them.

The only people I see whining about politics being brought into tech are (checks notes) oh look. White men.
