so, yesterday, i put together a list of nazi instances i had blocked. that post has been boosted over 60 times. that's cool, i'm glad i did something useful.

but i can't do that kind of thing if i can't eat. my post about needing money for food has been boosted ten times.

if you appreciate and value the work i put into notifying everyone about where the fash are and you have some money to spare, please pay me.

if you can't give, please always boost.

Help me with rent (asking for $)

Because my college library position started late and is only half time, I'm about $250 short of making rent in July. Anything and everything will help me stay safe. Boosts too!

90%+ of the fedi is going to block gab and they're still going to be able to see everything because defederation/server blocks don't work like you think they do because activitypub. maybe instead of grandstanding to misdirect about whatever bullshit you're up to, come help us find a solution to THAT looming disaster

So, here's another thing from that course.

"Categories of Resources:
Those which increase by modest use.
Those unaffected by use.
Those which disappear or degrade if not used.
Those reduced by use.
Those which pollute or destroy other resources if used."

And it's a good point on it's own, but I want to add: *resources aren't only physical.*

Time is a resource. health. energy. Executive function. Don't forget these and other important nonphysical resources!

I've been thinking a lot lately about how much BETTER I feel when I'm nonverbal. Like, if I just let myself be without trying to talk, it jsut feels right.

This line was in a course and it just resonates right now.

"Stress may be defined as either prevention of natural function, or of forced function; and (conversely) harmony as the permission of chosen and natural functions and the supply of essential needs."

Hey y'all! I just made a mastodon account so I'm new to this and still figuring stuff out. My name is Ren and I draw things!

I use a huion kamvas gt-191 drawing tablet, and the programs I use are Paint Tool Sai 2 and Clip Studio Paint.

Here's a #hollowknight piece I made a little while ago.

RT @CuilPress Okay, off the long thread earlier, ( we've been asked to talk about why someone might pick a small press over one of the big publishers.

The truth is that there is no one answer for this, *it depends on the press*.

To start with, I'm going to give some general observations, then I'm going to talk about Cuil specifically as an example.

Small happiness.

Being frequently nonverbal has interfered with my saying kaddish for my mother.

Finally had idea go off, and googled.

There are videos of both kaddish and the Shema in . No idea how accurate the translations are, but frankly I don't care how bad they are right now because it's *something*.

So this is a thing!

Morning folks.

I'm driving myself crazy with this cover. Give me an opinion? (Color is preliminary, may change it later.)

Image description: Same image in different colors, first black with red background,then red with black background.

Book cover reads 'Whips & Fangs by Jess Mahler' 'Whips' and 'Fangs' are written in different stylized scripts. Next to 'whips' is the silhoutte of a woman holding a can. Next to 'fangs' is a silhouette of a howling wolf.
