@Pops How much left on the bill?

Apparently the answer the massive security holes caused by not providing security updates to devices is not to provide those updates, but to make people buy new devices
Anyway, between that and my Pixel 1's deteriorating battery life, I'm considering getting a new phone. What are your favorite smartphones that are

It's time to put on my Street Medic pants! I didn't feel comfortable wearing the label when my only training was a basic First Aid/CPR/AED certification. I didn't feel comfortable after Stop the Bleed or days and days of self-guided study. I needed more, so I got it!
I just received my NAEMT Tactical Emergency Casualty Care Provider certificate and some really intense hands on training. I won't stop learning (I can still level up), but it's finally time to start helping.
I am running an rpg session for kids with special needs on Monday and I need to come up with a one-shot or adventure for them. They already have characters (everything from a fantasy style princess to a modern soldier to a Saiyan) and have seen wizards in crystal caves, AI controlled space ships, and steam-punk type air balloons. Basically, the setting doesn't matter, because all of the universes have collapsed into one and they are surviving. I just need the next story! Any suggestions?
The local Working Wardrobes headquarters in Irvine, California burned down this last weekend. They are a career development non-profit that provides professional clothing and training for at-risk people to help them get work. Can't get a job without looking sharp for an interview, can't look sharp without a job. A lot was lost in the fire, but the mission remains!
If you are in the area, we are collecting clothing at multiple locations throughout Orange County. Hit me up for details!

Is it art? I think it's art.
Shit's all broken and the world is fucked and I'm feeling fabulous because I have a cup of coffee and the power of the internet in my pocket.
I am using that power to say that your value as a person has not and never will come from your economic situation, your pronouns, your name, your skin, your friends, or your family. They may influence how you view yourself, but they don't change your true worth!
You are valued, and don't let a fucked up system tell you otherwise.
How's everyone doing today?
I found a great infographic on birdsite today about how stress levels affect #ActuallyAutistic folks

I've been working towards something like this for months now, and it's great to find it fully laid out and clearly explained.
I am ecstatic to be back at level 1 (for now!) and able to be fully-functional-for-me
I've officially lost The Little Drummer Boy game. I made it one day and am disappointed. For those who haven't played, the goal of the game is to get through Christmas without hearing The Little Drummer Boy at all. The game kicks off on Thanksgiving, and I've lost already!
