‘But you’re Philip Glass! What are you doing here?’ It was obvious that I was installing his dishwasher and I told him I would soon be finished. ‘But you are an artist,’ he protested. I explained that I was an artist but that I was sometimes a plumber as well and that he should go away and let me finish.”>>

There's so much in the world to be despairing about that you have to make utopia where you can, even in tiny temporary ways, bc often you forget what it's like to be seen as a human being in all the ways you are
ever decide it's not even worth trying to explain WHY you were doing this thing which caused an error and writing "for reasons"
if you have a car with a fob to allow you to start it, etc what happens if you are driving and you throw the fob out the window? does it check at intervals? only on start?

Y'all are deep frying memes from Mastodon screenshots now. I'm gonna put my phone down for an hour and lawd help me what I see when I pick it back up
ｃｙｂｒｅ ≠ cyber
ｃｙｂｒｅ describes an optimism, a hope for the possibility of technology rather than a fear of its oppression
ｃｙｂｒｅ represents the reality of what is now possible, in addition to the mythology of what was thought possible
ｃｙｂｒｅ belongs to the indomitable individuals and indefatigable communities who have carved out a home in an invisible layer above reality
also ｃｙｂｒｅ was available as a domain name

being honest and kind to yourself
i just swear it works and it's possible and i'm trying

An evocative name, "occult camp".
The counselors catching the kids staying up writing resumes instead of playing with flashlights and ouija boards.
A canoe full of hooded children rowing on a lake.
Writing letters home and throwing them in the fire while witch parents back home spread ashes across paper and see the letters from camp appear.
Every summer's cohort summons /something/ from the lake... a different something each year, like a mascot... a hungry mascot.
...and at scale.

i'm 21, enby, and rounding out my second year with my boyfriend (who laments but tolerates my fascination with mastodon). i'm also a dragon furry and run another instance called scalie.business for folks who like that sort of thing
i'm perpetually fascinated by all things cybre; i'm a computer engineering student right now but i'll be entering the tech workforce soon. i have lots of thoughts about computers but not nearly enough time to explore them all :(
