I learned an important lesson today and that's do not start your days with intense depression, especially not when you have a D&D game and a lot of schoolwork to do.

I would actually argue that what we have isn't a cyberPUNK dystopia unless we -punk it ourselves; what we have is a cyberAUTHORITARIAN dystopia.

If you want to democratize tech, don't start with people who are already into tech. Go to actual craft fairs and figure out what little old ladies need from tech that is either a) not being met or b) being met by super-expensive corporate shit.

Like. Why isn't there a raspberry pi workshop/booth at the county fair? Why are you relying on normal people to seek you out instead of meeting them where they are?

i hate capitalism but also especially the gig economy 

What is one meant to do in a zoom class after they finish the test... do I just sit here. Am I allowed to be on my phone. Why is this more boring than sitting in class.

"twerp" is a term meaning "twink into erotic roleplay"

By the way my textbook in this class is from 1938 in case you ever thought that maybe education in america was moving forward

time spent learning about education this semester: 2h
time spent complaining about the state of education this semester: 800h

Guess what I'm back and I'm here to vagueblog about the process of becoming a teacher in the state of West Virginia

In his latest video, my 13-year-old nephew refers to the PlayStation Vita as a "vintage game console," so if you're wondering why I've shriveled up and crumbled to dust, that's why

It's kind of important to me that you know that my mom has been stuck here during the weekdays and for the first time possibly ever in her life she's had a LOT of free time. She has spent it,,, getting really into BTS and binge-watching old RUN BTS episodes. (RM and Yoongi compete for her bias, V is her bias wrecker, I get to hear my 62 year old mother use these terms and my life is so blessed)

Yesterday I spent 130k bells on a cello (once again channeling @Prawnlegs ). I raided my friend's island for fruit to afford it, after dressing up like a wild west bandit. Art imitates life because I WOULD rob a friend IRL to afford a cello, were that an option.

My shock when a free program actually does what it's advertised to do without locking it behind a paid upgrade... it's palpable.

I'm on quarantine day 46 and time has ceased to have any meaning

covid-19, morbid, possible murder plot (lol but also not lol)

Hey San Diego comrades,

PSL San Diego is launching a campaign to demand a moratorium on evictions, foreclosures, and utility shut-offs with no accumulation of debt from missed payments!

And, will be taking these demands to local government bodies.

You can endorse the campaign via a google form → bit.ly/2UWObgz

I had to go out for some basic supplies (read: the freezer was empty) so I decided to stop and get some pizza and hoo boy. Wow. The amount of dopamine released by this pizza after weeks and weeks of nothing but my own cooking is INTENSE. This could be a fucking five star steak for as pleased as my little gremlin brain is right now.

covid-19 again
