Good thoughts from Tumblr (not by me):

"If courage isn’t the absence of fear but doing the right thing regardless of it, maybe confidence isn’t the absence of insecurity but knowing you have real worth despite it"

"By this same token, maybe goodness isn’t the absence of bad thoughts or impulses, but the conscious choice to behave according to your moral ideals in spite of them."

@anotak Right now the only distribution I want is directly from my website.

Being published on kinda comes with the implied responsibility of keeping it working as Twitter changes, etc, and I'm not prepared for that commitment.

1. The bundle on my site is signed and conforms to all Mozilla's reqs (besides having "fuck" in the name).
2. The code is free to modify/republish with no strings attached (though I'd appreciate a link or shout out).

Today was a beach day for the first time in, oh, 5 years?

The ocean is cool, but I secretly miss lakes and ponds shaded on all sides by pine forest.

I like the fact that over the past few years, the internet just organically decided to shift their stance on bees from "ordinary cute bug" to "good and pure nature friend who's got our back, and we got theirs, always."

Anyway I know they aren't talking about me, but whenever I see a bee appreciation post, I pretend they are for half a beat. 🐝

@mcmoots *throwing on dangly french fry earrings* Okay, nobody should suspect a thing

The last bit of software I made was a Firefox extension to bypass Twitter's t-dot-co click wrapper.

It is extremely not useful and it took me a while to figure out why I bothered to make it (let alone publish it so it could be installed).

I desperately want to be a part of the exodus from for-profit social media, but I know that I don't have the initiative or confidence to work in a cooperative. So I decided to be a lone saboteur instead. 💣

Hi,, I'm Jess (or Bees, or Esbe). I make digital art, run bad art installations (as in, the installations, which are good, are devoted to making and sharing bad art), and sometimes even write software.
