Welcome to my thought stream.
It's mainly whiny music, medium understood philosophy, mental health coping, attempts at support, and coping with being a socialist in a MBA program.
I'm a union worker at a store going through contract negotiations.
C-PTSD, MDD, lots of trauma that comes out of nowhere.
Gluten Free for health.
"Human by birth. Hoosier by choice. Southern by the grace of God." Make of that what you will.
I was referred here by We Hunted The Mammoth, as a replacement for the other thing. Not this specific instance. I kinda picked at random 😅 and it sounded like the best fit.
Early 30s, femme, head stuff, yarn fun, food, dog longing, work complaints, writer, left Pol, true crime, TV workouts, and so much Star Trek
Apparently, I have a blog.
Occasional ESL teacher, and US Civics.
Currently thinking about Grad School.
like my followers-only toots were talking about, i've been feeling pretty spiritual in the past few days, and i want to hone my intuition and insight while the kick lasts, so:
i'm offering free tarot readings to anyone who wants one, any questions, any spreads
if you want to boost or link to someone you think might be interested, you're super welcome to :)
MacMillan dicking over Libraries- How to help
Sign this petition the ALA has put together,
they also have sample letters you can write to MacMillan.
If you have Birdsite, fucking tweet at MacMillan about how much they suck.
And of course, in general, just get the word out.
You may get an email from your library about this because they're understandably pissed.
I was a bit surprised to see how many things I have which have added sugar in them.
I think my goal here is going to be a serious reduction to about 100 grams per day. (I know I don't often do well on keto levels, and this week's meal plan is carb heavy.)
My usual day is between 200-300 grams of sugar. That includes multiple indulgences.
Goals for today: no soda.

Being completely honest.
If I didn't know my body couldn't handle wheat, half of my posts would still be about breakfast burritos. I just don't like breakfast tacos as much and enchiladas require a bit more effort.
MBA and a lack of quality breakfast burritos is not how I thought my life would go when I was a 15 year old coming up with code names in arroyos in New Mexico.
We also did a webcomic using the names. I'd draw them in class and we had this plot that made a lot of sense at the time.
I think it was on livejournal or xanga.
Most of the ones I remember are about being in college at 16. Writing coming of age stories while you are coming of age is weird.
A lot of them were teenage girl insecurity, some were really regional specific, and probably half that we posted were about breakfast burritos.
Every now and then I feel like I should explain my handle because of contemporary slang and cultural changes.
I've been using it for half my life.
And it's mildly embarrassing.
In ~03 a study came out that said duck was the funniest word in the English language. It became my best friend's nickname, I got goose.
Savage was the last name of the person I was crushing on so hard. Best friend's crush's last name was secret.
Savage Goose, Secret Duck.
It became a thing.
I'm going to make a half recipe of these
I have everything and it should help with the annoyed at everyone because brain was processing things feeling.
I just had a specific dream that was the argument after the majority of my fears happened.
I think it's directly related to this huge fight a good friend is having with their spouse. I've been the sounding board for both of them, for reasons.
It's not really fair but I'm really mad at my husband and a different good friend, and another good friend, and my brain.
Minus the driving through Saks, it felt really real.
PSA: misdiagnosis in the neurodivergent and mh communities
this is a work-in-progress for us, so please keep that in mind, but here goes.
y'all, if you approach clinical diagnosis, be aware that both denial of services and misdiagnosis are possibilities, for a variety of reasons.
by misdiagnosis, we mean something that you're *not* seeking out and/or is better explained by other conditions than what is being asserted and/or is simply not true.
the conditionals there are very important. people assume sometimes that being critical of a way that a condition is diagnosed and responded to clinically, is criticizing seeking out treatment, or even the people with the condition itself. which is *NOT* what we're saying here. at all.
When I realize that I've spent a page making an ethical argument on firing a hypothetical person.
But they did send the person into a situation without following safety protocol.
But it's implied they did that to meet quotas.
Can we fire the people that make the quotas feel like we have to ignore safety protocol?
Human. US Midwest. Communicates in anecdotes, inside jokes, and knitting or crochet patterns.
