Internet, 2002; claiming that you're over 18 so that websites will let you in.
Internet, 2018: claiming that you're under 16 and in the EU so that websites cannot track your data
Today feels like it should be Friday. Why isn't it Friday? Can it be Friday please??

@Wolf480pl @ajroach42 @Shamar @ciaby @pnathan I'm sure that's true. One common problem that I think is pretty evident in the US is that people think of education as being something that happens in school, that's the school's/government's responsibility, rather than everyone's responsibility and happening everywhere and all the time.
ughhh, tryna ~steal~ some papers needed for one of my assignments using sci-hub but when I search for the paper the DNS doesn't seem to resolve. I tried changing my DNS to google's nameserver (22.214.171.124).
any other ideas would be appreciated. :)
Idea: Store small files in a little folder, and hand them out to friends who are going to be facing a tough day, as cyber friends.
Maybe they're silly gifs, cute pictures, fragments of writing you abandoned, spreadsheets you downloaded for an assignment, sound effects you extracted from your favourite game as a kid, icons you got on a CD at a fair, doesn't really matter. They're small cyber comfort objects, just for a day.
is the cybrespace matrix server down? i cant seem to connect to it.

I'm tired of feeling like shit, and being a fraud
I'm tired of never being good enough, of always hating myself
I'm sick of getting in my own way all the fucking time
and you know what? I'm done with that. I'm just not going to do it anymore. I'm in control, not some insidious voice inside my head, me! right now I'm deciding not to give in to those thoughts. not to listen to them when i berate everything I do
I'm going to work hard and try my best. stop passing value judgements and see where it takes me

jesus fucking christ. i know I've been bitching about Google play services a lot here, but it's literally eating up more battery than my screen at this point. since fully charging my phone this morning it's drained 20% by itself, without me opening any google apps. i dont know what to do about it other than nuke my install and go gappsless. any other suggestions?
other people: why are you so hard on yourself
me: i have always had a model of myself that is derived from fictitious and impossible worlds, persons, pasts, and futures, and i've been this way since i was a tiny smol
hmm, idk if im not used to the standing mouse yet or its not actually ergonomic but it is stressing my hand.
i do like the way it feels though
back to work
