Goals for a new year (which rolls around on my birthday):
Read literally everything I can on prison abolition. It's an important topic
for me and I want to learn everything I can in order to help communities explore the idea further.
Continue to speculate on what progress can mean outside of capitalism. Can
we cooperate in ways that are better than what vast amounts of money and power can provide? Can we work outside of the constraints of government power?
Continue to build community. I have gained so many friends and cherished
people in the past year, and I think I'm literally alive because of that.
I love you.

cw: suicide mention
last night, @firstname.lastname@example.org killed herself. this has been a hard year and i thought i could write out how i felt, but it's still too raw for me. i didn't know her all that well, but part of me felt she would always be in my timeline shitposting. i'm working today but i'm not holding up well.

I'm really struggling, town. Content Note: suicide
Chester Bennington killed himself yesterday. Linkin Park got me through a lot of stuff when I was a kid. It was an outlet for a lot of anger and depression, and probably kept me from getting worse.
This news has hit me hard.
A lot harder than I expected.
I have been despondant and numb all day today. I've barely eaten but have no appetite. Suicidal thoughts are right there on the surface. I want to be okay, and maybe therapy this weekend will help with that.
Anyway, I love you, townies.

Technology that doesnt care about people first and foremost is going to be oppressive.
People are important. More important than ability, skill, or anything. People are important regardless.

june is now empty.

I don't think I would be surviving this job if I couldn't connect to tilde.town. It is the only thing that helps me fight the urge to just quit (that and the encouragement of my partner-friend).
I'm really hoping that I am able to get that other job, being able to pay bills would be life-saving.
In hopes of funding some of my passions, I've started a patreon. Maybe someone will be interested in funding my weird twitter bot art? Maybe I will then do more art? Who knows?

I start working for support.com today. I am not all that excited about it, tbh. I don't like being part of the meatgrinder of the exploitative customer service racket.
But a paycheck is a paycheck. I will deal with this as opposed to not eating.

I remember when I used to play this online nation simulation game nearly 10 years ago, and one of the parties was a weeaboo pseudo-fascist group. At the time, I thought nothing of it, but now looking back, I wonder how many of them are part of the alt-right movement. Their IRC channel was always full of horrendous shit hidden behind a guise of irony and with cute anime pics.
It's horrifying to think about how I never thought anything.

While I can do many things will amazingly high, writing code is not one of them.

I took a job offer with support.com. I feel icky but really need to have a remote job fast.
