Once more for the people in the back:
Put content warnings on your politics posts. I come to Mastodon specifically to avoid the horrible things in the news.
I don't care how urgently you want me to see it. In fact, adding a content warning will make me *more* likely to care, because it will give me time to brace myself.
Anybody here keep meaning to reread #Homestuck? Or to read it for the first time and see what all the fuss is about?
@squeedoodle and I are doing a reread starting December 1. Plan is 1 week each for Acts 1, 2, and 3, and then the Midnight Crew intermission for the end of December. (I have ideas of how long it will take to read later acts, but want to see what y'all think.) Discussion at #HomestuckReread2020.
Let us know if you're interested! ♈ ♉ ♊ ♋ ♌ ♍ ♎ ♏ ♐ ♑ ♒ ♓
a philosophy of life
Learn what you can change; work to change it for the better.
Learn not to let what you can’t change destroy you; work to influence it in small ways that build up over time until you can change it.
Learn patience with the world.
Learn who you love; work to show them you love them.
Learn who loves you; work to show them you appreciate their love.
Learn patience with yourself.
Work to clear a space for yourself where you can spend some time not working.
I know everyone here talks about how estrogen makes people hot and how T is a disgusting hormone or whatever, but if you're a trans guy/transmasc and want to go on T, don't listen to that.
You can still be handsome/cute/pretty etc. once you go on T, even more so because you're happier with yourself! You can still be wonderful and attractive, what hormone you have in your body doesn't change that.
I never want Internet of Things in my house. But can I have LAN of Things?
Like why tf do I need to turn my heating on from school when I'm not in the house? I have a thermostat? And a timer? That work?
If I'm not at home, and often when I am, why tf do I want to see who is at my door? I'm not going to answer it.
Sometimes, however, I do have a need for remotely activating the coffee machine, or closing the curtains while I'm in bed. Just dont know why I need an internet connection for it...
@starkatt I don't know if we would have found sonas if it weren't a "have fun RPing with friends" thing, and those sonas were the things that made us able to recognize ourselves as people the way we do now.
Fun isn't an indulgence, it's one of the ways people can understand their relationships with themselves and the world around them.

There were steps leading from the sea wall into the water.
"Don't you just want to follow them down?" a tourist said.
An artist, painting nearby, looked at him.
"You don't need steps to get into the sea," she said, "only to get out of it."
Her smile seemed to have too many teeth.
