time for an updated #introductions
call me xyzzy
i'm a queer cis girl
i live in a city on the east coast of the US
i work in marketing, expect to see rants about it
i write so much it's concerning
i've got some brainweirds
i love music, cats, making weird things, animal crossing (i play new leaf, GCN, and pocket camp), geocities, languages (i know spanish, some russian, and a little french), and Aesthetics
to clarify, i know this is probably fixable, i'm looking into things to try now. i just have never experienced a browser just... totally ceasing to function as a browser before. it's a little shocking. and coming so soon after the add-ons thing that basically made firefox unusable for me for a while- i'm a little annoyed.
something i've been thinking about lately is that it's fine to keep enjoying the things you enjoy
if you like a shampoo you don't have to keep trying other shampoos just in case they're better
if you really like a restaurant you don't have to force yourself to try other ones
if you want to rewatch the same show, reread the same book, replay the same game, resisten to the same songs, don't feel bad about it
trying new things is great but it's also ok to enjoy things you already know you like
food (+) Show more
One cookbook I liked that's specifically all just recipes for on a Food Stamps budget is "Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4 a Day," by Leanne Brown. It's a NYT Bestseller... and the author made it available for free as a PDF: https://cookbooks.leannebrown.com/good-and-cheap.pdf
The recipes are quick and easy for beginner cooks, and they're focused around making sure you get the healthiest *and* tastiest food staples, which can be tough to figure out on such a tight budget.
Relatedly, I made a separate thread about how if you're on Food Stamps or Medicaid, you can get a discount on Amazon Prime, which has free shipping, so it can save you the cost of transportation to shop, plus having free on-demand TV: https://dragon.style/@frameacloud/102113871492867122
technology, ableism, and environmentalism Show more
disabled people rely on technology. we rely on social media when we can't leave the house and need people to talk to. we rely on non-recyclable plastics to distribute safe, sterile medical supplies. we rely on cars when public transit isn't accessible. we rely on plastic straws, delivery services, and more.
your concerns for the environment cannot leave us out.
the answer to "what did you do before those things?" is "die or suffer, mostly."
I'm an adult Show more
I played very little of happy home designer a while back before i got bored with it

Feel free to make suggestions for other ones in this set (but I'm gonna consider the ones from people that pay me first, since I'm a venal monster).
