It's been a minute since I did an so why not. I'm Serra, a software engineer who's trans/non-binary, queer, and living with (well managed) psychopathy and (poorly managed) depression. I have two cats, Dottie and Velcro. The languages I'm most familiar with are Ruby and javascript, and I enjoy Rust, Go, and Elixir. I don't toot often but I like faving toots from others. I have a server at that I'd love more people to be on, lemme know if you're interested!

asking for help 

I am struggling to buy food I can survive on beyond the end of this week. If you have some cash you can send my way, it would help a lot, and you will have my gratitude. My payment venues are in my profile, I think; please let me know if they don't work for you. And thank you for any help you can provide - whether it's financial support, boosting this to someone who can help, or helping me find a job so I don't have to ask anymore. 💜

I want a job working with something other than Ruby and react

Me: ok, so I'll pull two groups at a time like usual, alright?
Friend: No. Pull more
Me: What?
F: I'm playing WMG, I have no DPS to fill in the moments when I'm not healing you. It's literally no fun unless you're dying
Me: Kind of dark, but I guess I can push for three
F: Pull. More
Me: There's literally a boss next, this seems like a bad idea
F: Pull more!
Me: Why don't I just turn off tank stance, you can have fun healing the whole party!
F: Ooh, do it! Bet you won't!

FFXIV question 

A friend of mine is having trouble unlocking astrologian and online resources have been no help. Can anyone describe the prereqs for it?

Red mage is not as interesting as I was hoping it would be. Feels...Somehow clunky to me.

Holy cow, samurai does a truck load of damage

Very homophobic for the FFXIV server to go down in the middle of a cutscene
