I wish things were simple for once. Everything seems complicated and it's a slow grind with goalposts constantly moving.

Trying to remain cautiously optimistic as opposed to excitedly jump up and down in giddyness. I want to avoid being completely disappointed in a few months.

since I'm feeling extra good today, here's a reminder for all of those who need to hear it:

You can be bi/pan/something else I don't know, even if you have dated only people of one gender. Or even if you have never dated anyone. Or if you have dated exactly one person and been married to them last 70 years.

I am going from barely leaving a specific room in my house to traveling to the South of Italy, England and Japan all in a span of three weeks. This is really anxiety inducing. I am not saying I have developed agoraphobia, but I am definitely struggling with something a few years ago I would have enjoyed.


There's the sad drunk, the loud drunk, and the "I just f-inkg want to sleep" drunk, aka me right now. I am basically existing in a tired state 24/7...

I wonder if KISS sets are still a thing. I loved making them a very long time ago.

I've been following the Secrets of Shading online course by Steven Zapata and taking notes in the process.

The wider community I've come to adore here seems pretty in line with an understanding that “shit’s going pretty badly, and likely will get worse.”

I see many folks share many articles and theories and figures backing this up.

I see some folks doing individual prepping. I see some folks (myself included) looking for solution, or next step. I know many take local action.

What can we do as online internet buds to help each other? Is there collective action we can take as an online community?

Time to go to sleep, hoping I do get any given how how it is here right now...

My no-buy month begins this week! Of course essentials are allowed but no extras!

"Excuse me, is the charger free?"
"I'm afraid I am still using it," the robot said. "I apologise."
The man sat down. "Don't worry, my legs can wait."
"For some reason, it seems to take me longer to recharge."
"Happens to us all. No need to apologise. We are worth waiting for."

The first image from the James Webb Space Telescope (#JWST). From NASA,

"This slice of the vast universe covers a patch of sky approximately the size of a grain of sand held at arm’s length by someone on the ground."

In that little speck, I don’t know, maybe a thousand galaxies, each with perhaps 100,000,000,000 stars, and all that in a patch of sky too small to even pay attention to.

I enjoy going through status.cafe users and looking at their web pages, so many awesome websites!

My good friend @rpginabox is launching an IndieGoGo campaign to fund the ongoing solo development of his #GameDev engine. He's been working on it for years, and it already includes plenty of cool features.

You can use it to make all kinds of voxel-based games with a retro vibe. It's meant to be easy to use, suitable for kids and non-programmers. It offers visual tools, though you can also use the dedicated script language for advanced stuff. And it's made with #Godot.


I do have that damn song stuck in my head now... It is a good song but still...
