Pinned toot

I don't know what I am, but I'm here.

I write a lot about feelings (especially grief) and dissolving the plutonomy. I code; I record original music; I build shelves; I pull out wisteria; I parent; I friend.

In suspended transition from 2000-2016, struggling towards transgirl since then.

I've joined this instance because I'm an ARPA member on the SDF. I also keep a few back-up identities on other instances too.

I'm curious about gopher, Mastodon, OSS, Linux, Emacs, Org-mode,
tabletop RPGs, philosophy, history, and programming. I'm known to
fiddle with Python on occasion.

If you want to chat, ping me!

Ask for help when you need it because it's fucking normal.

Today is a special day. I give you what I posted in 2011 on G+:

Today is my little sister's birthday. She loved trees. I've decided to commemorate her birthday by declaring it Hug a Tree Day. Hug as many trees as you can! Especially oak trees.. she liked those in particular.

Happy Birthday, Jenny. I miss you.
