How you can support me update. 

I'm phasing out Patreon in the long run, but I don't have a PayPal Pro account, so I can't take monthly subs through it yet, so if your preferred means of support is via Paypal, You can support me via Patreon.
patreon.com/maloki

If you use Credit Card but NOT with PayPal (it will be through Stripe) you can either set up a Monthly on Ko-Fi, because I have gold! If you are considering supporting me with more than 5 kofis a month, I rather have you support someone else with that extra money.

If you ever see me post a link but I've not clearly described it, or you don't feel like I made it justice, feel free to repost it with your own description. You don't even have to mention me.

Sometimes I want to send something out into the world, but don't have the right energy to formulate thoughts.

PSA, this account:

I will not follow any, or allow follows from, mastodon.social nor mastodon.online

The "not a flag-ship" instance does not need two instances, and I'm tired of how it's being handled and managed.

If you want help finding a different server, let me know! I love matching people and instances.

Now I just need to remind myself that it's okay to rest. 👍

Pro tip, work related: 

This can even be useful when doing volunteer work, but you're expected to do certain work.

You can have a contract that says it's for no pay. But it provides you a security in regard to "this is work I've been assigned to do".

I don't have a lot of experience in that regard, but I'm sure others in here do have examples of contracted volunteer work.

Pro tip, work related: 

Always write a contract.

Make sure your expected work or work title is on the contract.

Have that shit in writing, because you never know when you gonna need it.

Save it, then save backups in at least two more places.

You'll thank me in 3.5 years when you need to look at it again.

The new house, greenery/ pet 

So this morning I realized that the house is right next to some greenery. As in there's grass just outside our yard by the front door, which means having a dog will be very convenient, as I don't like my dogs peeing on asphalt or against buildings if I can avoid it.

And then as we drove back to the old place, Loa pointed out a shortcut that takes your straight to the park.

And the park leads to an even bigger park area, and I'm just excited.

Moving / dreaming / books 

Dreaming together about how you want to live, and create your own home is such a nice feeling.

Also, I'm getting a proper book shelf in the living room eventually!

And then I'll be sorting through my books and decide which ones I'm keeping, while also making some kind of to-read list so I keep going through what I own.

Books I'm not keeping will either be sent to friends or given away in the neighborhood.

Moving / bujo 

Instead of trying to force Andy to make use of a bujo himself, I asked if we could do the planning on my journal, and he can just tell me when he thinks of things, which he agreed to. So we did that tonight and it was fun, even though we got carried away thinking about how we'd redo the kitchen in the next few years.

Range cookers are so cool! 😍 And we may have looked at expensive coffee machines. 😅 😂 🤣

Moving 

Sat down together with food, watched the first episode of new season of Sabrina now that we caught up.

Chatted about the house, what we want to buy. Kind of created a master list, that we'll eventually shuffle into monthly budget.

It was so nice, now that we have the house and access, we can actually begin to plan.

We've had access for a month, but postponed the moving until now because it was better for us.

I really appreciated this video! May help you too (and it's really short!)

One question to ask [yourself] when someone doesn't like you
youtu.be/14DppUDztJE

Does anyone on here use an app for ? Not as a companion but instead of notebook.

Loa is interested if he can find a good app, but don't want to do a notebook and phone.

Which app would you recommend?

Moving 

We packed a few more boxes. It's almost everything. 🥰

I packed most of it, found some stuff we were looking for, as a bonus.

Planning which boxes to take when.

food mention, relationship silliness 

I was just climbing into bed when my boyfriend came into the room to tell me a little story about how he'd sorta hijacked a joke to determine that we have to have s'mores at some point this year.

To thank him for his little story, I said "That's cute and I like it."

"You're cute and I like you," he told me, and we grinned at each other like the sickening individuals we are. And then he went back to work and I went to bed.

It’s good that white people are paying more attention to the dangers of white supremacy, but there is more work to be done than just demobilizing organized hate groups, writes @TheBarbaraSmith@twitter.com. #MLK https://trib.al/dnQxGzO

vaguejoke, gab 

Still amazes me that Gab decided to leave the fediverse all over a pink and rainbow covered copy of SICP though

My work has been a cycle of co-building technical foundations, getting people excited, then community development (as people build stuff better than I would have on top), repeat?

I've been in steps 2+3 for ActivityPub for ~3 years; starting to move from 1->2 for @spritelyproject...

Moving stuff 

Me and Loa packed half the room upstairs in a fairly organized matter.

Spoilers? Howl's Moving Castle... 

...contains one of my favourite examples of this.

The first time Howl appears on screen, he says, "Ah, sorry, I've been looking for you!" At the time, it's just framed as an offbeat way to get rid of those two soldiers bothering Sophie.

Then at the end of the story, Sophie goes back in time, sees Howl when he was younger, and says, "Wait for me in the future!"

HE KNEW THE ENTIRE TIME

One of my favourite tricks that a writer can pull, is to throw something at you after you've gotten comfortable in a story, which reframes everything, so when you re-read or re-watch it, you have a different context and pick things up which you missed before.
