New Instance, newly-edited #introductions post:
Hi, I'm Pamela! I live by a great lake (well, it's alright). I really love animals and have a pet turtle and cats. I like to learn new things and work with my hands. I like ecology, #STEM, #gameing, #openbsd, books and nature, and I enjoy painting but don't spend enough time doing it.
I have #agoraphobia and write about that pretty regularly, now, as well as my experiences with microwork.
I'm about 60% through a makeup artistry program and this is some real offensive "mate-attraction" shit.
if you ever want to learn the color theory, composition or application techniques and you're otherwise going to hit up the gendered hellworld this is, please let me direct you elsewhere because yikes
trafficking of an underage girl
Welcome to the US, where in Iowa you can be the victim and still owe restitution.
If you want to help pay the mandatory $150,000 a young woman must give to the family of someone she killed in self-defense because everything is bullshit. She isn't going to pay a damn cent.
This is not trying to catch anyone out, just wondering what sorts of wayfinding signage and accessibility solutions different spaces in different parts of the world have, or lack, and whether they're accessible during an emergency. Maybe we can improve some spaces just by thinking about them!
There are lots of things businesses already have, like portable ramps that employees can lay out when someone needs access to a storefront. But that doesn't mean it's where it would be needed in case people needed out in a hurry. Things like ladders may or may not be usable for everyone inside a space. Braille might be available on the elevator buttons but forgotten in the stairwell, etc. Lots of little failure points. How'd they do?
Hey, feel like a little adventure? Do me a favor. Are you visiting a workplace or an interior business or office or similar today?
Imagine the power has gone out. Someone who is blind, someone with one arm immobilized and a wheelchair user need to evacuate. Do all three have equal access to emergency signage? Are they all able to leave under their own power?
If not, what would they need?
The answer is of course yes, you can buy raw bundles of dried water hyacinth and then weave it yourself. Now that we don't have the steady supply of plastic bags to weave, I wonder what other nuisance plants would make nice home craft supplies?
Sorry to ask but we're disabled and our apartment, especially our bedroom, is really insanitary and it's getting worse with time. The walls are rotting and so are our belongings.
When we wash clothes it starts rotting after like 2 days if we don't wear it so we have to wear the same ones all the time.
We need to buy boxes to protect our clothes and books mostly + get a sack truck to get rid off some rotten furniture asap.
Please boost, thanks for any help!
The whole internet ad apparatus is trying to sell me this same freaking jumpsuit and I'm so sick of seeing it. Usually it's advertised as perfect for work and like...no most jobs they would have sent me to change out of my loungewear, are you kidding?
The annoying thing is I hated it on first sight and now that I've seen it many dozens of times, I do want one
