for real tho, if you ever need any content warnings for a movie, check out

it doesn't just warn for animal death anymore. a ways back it started adding more and more content warnings.

it's gotten to warning for specific kinds of deaths, specific kinds of trauma and abuse, hatecrimes, specific mutilations, addictions, etc.

it's really really helpful for people with any kinds of triggers for stuff like that.

>Living on my own in a cold house
>Family relationships crumbling
>Reliance on consuming/producing media to feel anything
>Shrinking friend group
>Cripplingly lonely

Here's to the 2020s being better! ✨

Trans medical stuff 

Hrrrhggghfhfh third laser treatment got worse again, and there was a student laserologist sitting in on the session watching me squirm

Trans deadname 

I spent 25 years never meeting another person with my deadname, because it was and still is pretty uncommon.
Which means even now, every time I see it somewhere in an article etc it's a twisty gutpunch because I never learned to associate it with anybody but myself

Dating, weird 

Tinder has been dry and quiet for weeks and then suddenly I get three cool matches in a row

And one of them is.... a nonbinary person that I spent a day recording a VR film of them in a bathroom earlier this year

Feel like that's a real ice breaker huh

Mental health 

Depression-fuelled clothes shop actually went OK. Now I have some jeans without holes in and some fluffy DMs. The latter are the first shoes I've bought in like... nearly 3 years.

I better get some fuckin serotonin from having non-falling-apart clothes

creative tech gripes 

anyway this is what comes from presenting to a cishet crowd I guess

all these creative industry folks love to talk about Ideas and Research and Projects and Innovation..... but know nothing..... I bet half of them have just seen a reference to these universities / conferences / exhibitions and referenced that instead of checking what it's actually about and who's featured. They never seem to have actually engaged with it on any meaningful level.

except fucking Bandersnatch

creative tech gripes 

Love to do a presentation to a bunch of people about VR and creative tech, introducing myself as someone from a narrative games background, only to the field questions from them like "have you heard of (4 places I've exhibited at/been talked about at)? They're doing fascinating work in the area you should check them out" much have you actually paid attention to that work you've referenced..... and how much are you just namedropping assuming I don't know them...

Sad, online dating 

The last eight matches in a row on tinder have all just petered out with me sending the last message and then never getting a response

Demoralising and also very "hmm is there something wrong with me" inducing

Minor sads 

Read too much yuri manga this weekend and now all my emotions have been replaced by the warm hum of gay longing...... where is my wife.....
