the mastodon instance at is retiring 

for a lot of reasons, both personal and practical, i don't think i can effectively run a public mastodon instance any more, and i need to retire i want to do this responsibly and make sure everyone has a chance to migrate and export properly, so here is the plan for the instance retirement (feel free to share this link around):

due to ongoing moderation load issues and understaffing, between now and 1 november, the instance may be undermoderated. for other instances, if this poses an issue for you, i encourage you to use federation tools at your discretion. i would only ask that you be clear and public about your decisions so that users can figure out where they will be able to migrate their accounts.

thank you

We're not going to plastic pollution by banning plastic straws, or by charging plastic cups 10 eurocents.

The only way is if we shift the value of the plastic in our minds to correspond to the cost of it existing instead of the cost of it being produced.

Even shifting the notional value of it to its utility instead of production cost (which is probably easier for our lizard brains) might help.

the simple things again. Groceries bought and back to my diet.

Post- or rather, end of vacation blues. I so want to go home and crash, and yet I still feel this feeling of unfulfilled something.

I used to go on vacation with huge expectations. I didn't this time, but still...

Emotional needs. Dating. Romance. Polyamory. 

After a chat with a friend I started thinking about what are the emotional needs I'm trying to fulfill with different relationships and how does that fit in with my concept of polyamory. Do I confuse the needs and try to pile them all together, or we are truly a soup of emotions and segregation is just the easy way out?

Dating apps 

Also dating apps suck.

Relationships, balance 

I might recount the relationship stuff in another thread at some point, but now suffice to say I'm going through huge mood swings between "I need some alone time" and "I miss her"

Me recounting what happened while away. Mention of past depression, meds, sex drive. 

I've been away for some time. School, (new) work, relationships, life mostly. I've been busy af.

Work is now on the summer backburner, relationship has gone to shit and school is out for <strike>summer</strike> good (still gotta do my thesis).

I'm off my meds after more than a year and I fear the depression might come back. (Schedule to get off of them was on before relationship started going to shit, mostly because sex drive was below zero, talk about bad timing).

Anyway, hello again :-)

New job is near the beach, so guess what I'm doing every day :-)
