@lindar @KitRedgrave youtu.be/Kv8ePzRJrVY about an hour long, decent place to start

you can also find full playthroughs of the game "everything" on youtube, it has a nice spread of snippets from his talks and it's pretty relaxing to watch

reasons to get buff that dont have to do with fatphobia:
* punch better
* rage against the machine
* lift pretty girl
* flexies
* arm wrestle good
* lift TWO pretty girl!?

I'm in a rut.

10 My life is miserable.
20 I try to fix it, but it doesn't work.
30 I ask for help. They can't or it's ineffectual.
40 I feel like I'm spreading my misery around.
50 I isolate as to not spread my misery around.
60 Now I'm lonely and even more miserable.
70 GOTO 20

I'm a focused person, I still don't have a job despite actively interviewing for over six months, and I could really use some help.

If you have time and space in the SF Bay Area to mentor someone or just give them some quiet space and a computer, or if you want to hire me to do security stuff, I would really appreciate hearing from you.

Great at:
• Manual testing.
• Research.
• Talking to engineers.
• Talking to non-engineers.
• Documenting.
• Compliance testing.
• Hands-on learning.

Do not underestimate the value of 'soft' skills! Even in groups that do tech work like software development having people whose primary skills have nothing to do with software is important.
One hacker space I went to for a bit was mostly held together by a kid who came in and didn't know anything about what people were doing, they just liked to sit there and watch and talk to people as they worked.
Without them I think that the space would have fallen apart.

People like that are very important.

If y'all don't like transgender people then you'd better stop using your phone

Literally, almost all phones use ARM processors, and guess who designed the instruction set for the original ARM processor?

I spoke to my half-sister for the first time today and it was really cool. We're both introverted lesbians who love dogs. I'm excited to get to know her better.

I just wish I knew why people stare at me.

Even if I scrambled to leave right now I wouldn't get there early enough to enjoy the beach, so unless someone wants to drive me to Santa Cruz I guess I need to find something else to do with my day. :/

:/ I hate how bad I am at planning. I wanted to visit a friend in Santa Cruz today, but I am ~$10 short of getting there and $30 shy of getting back.

Short of a miracle I guess I'm saying in SF and staring into the void today. :thumbsup_paw:

I'm just really mad at myself for not thinking of this and planning better.

Well, my life feels very complicated at the moment, but at the same time not?

I'm waiting for an unexpected windfall to clear the bank, but I'm flat broke until that clears in ~10 days…

I rejected a final interview because it sat wrong with me, but I have more interviews coming up…

It feels like the most difficult task I have to face right now is repairing the relationships in my life after I've done so much inexcusable damage to people who I care about.

I guess I just need a plan of attack?

Well, therapy helped a bit, but I have homework that feels impossible to tackle. -_-

Thank you to all the people who look after me.
