"Decolonization demands fearlessness beneath the white supremacist gaze."

Pinned post


Hi everyone. I'm a student from the US, trying to figure out how to escape my gender along with my deeply colonized worldview. I'll probably talk about feelings, uspol, what i'm reading, and food.

school 

Finished, at least it was six more hours instead of ten.

I could try to be overtly optimistic but I probably have 6-10 more hours of work for this problem set

Begging post Help Fund The 1st Black Owned Rock Network Studio 

gofund.me/1f8a258e I donated to it. It's actually pretty cool and something that deserves to be saved.

food 

time for hot chocolate :blobcoffee:

school, mental health ~ 

So now I know I need to take very detailed notes and comment my code in ways that are good enough for my future self to understand.

It will be helpful anyway, because eventually I'll have to write it up. It might make my code better. And it'll be nice to have very good records because writing down things often helps me think about them in more detail.

Just realized that I have trouble answering questions about specific parts of my work because I was dissociating on-and-off in November and December when I was working on it.

It's kind-of a relief to know because someone would ask me a question about a figure I definitely made that was on my computer and sent to them from my e-mail and I would just have no memory of it at all.

URGENT crowdfunding for queer artist ($2600/$4000)

I've been helped out a lot on the fedi with my crowdfunds for me and my gf. I am now asking people to bring that same energy for my friend's brother.

My friend's brother (an amazing queer artist) has just been diagnosed with Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. The family's insurance company denied their claims due to the nature of his complications but without insurance they cannot afford his treatment. Please give and/or boost within the next week to literally save a life.

Have I mentioned lately how much I ? Because I love me a rascally, uncompromisingly antifascist & antiracist puffin. toot.wales/@pal/10578354416533

hmmm I have a vague feeling of residual embarrassment about something I did or said recently but I can't remember what

school 

at the beginning of the semester I could find help with my problem sets on khan academy, now i have to look halfway through tomes called 'theoretical astrophysics' i was *deceived* :blobcatsadlife:

i went on a walk at sunset today, it was cloudy and very windy, the sky was doing a lot of cool art with clouds and light, and i did some stretches while the surprisingly loud sound of rustling trees drowned out my uncomfortable thoughts and it was positively therapeutic

eating 

you know when you eat a meal, but then you're hungry again in thirty minutes, but you think, 'naw, that's impossible,' but then the feeling of hunger is still there an hour later, and you realize you're just having a bottomless pit day
