time because introductions are so hot right now.

I'm Mari, 32, they/them. I'm currently a level 2 IT helpdesk tech, so I pretend to know what I'm doing when things break.

Currently learning about web dev to escape my job. Video game obsessions include and .

I'm passionate about , , dishes, and watching videos. Even if I do most of those things kinda half-assedly 😂

I look forward to seeing you around!

Anyone else have this? I feel I can't play, read, do, watch or experience anything new or exciting 3-4 hours before bed otherwise I spent all night tossing around in bed thinking about the thing.

Tell me I'm not weird?

If you're not getting 25g of fiber a day, you're missing out on some incredible bathroom trips.

Eat. your. fiber.

I've never contributed to any open-source or related project before. How should a newbie try discovering and getting into it? Do I just creep around and randomly work pull requests?

I've been watching streamers since my anxiety soared 4 months ago. This is the first day where all of my usual streamers are all offline out of coincidence.

It's eerie with it being so quiet.

racism, politics, cancel culture 

I'm just now learning of one of the largest examples of cancel culture that I've never heard right-wingers talk about... A white man and black woman involved in public nudity - guess who they punish?

And why did they punish her? Because a CEO got mad and demanded retribution... for a breast.

What punishment did the man get? Nothing!

Absolutely ridiculous. In spite of all that, she's worked hard to overcome it. Good for her.

me at 15: "forget chores! chores are dumb!"
me at 25: "ugh fine chores, i guess... tomorrow"
me at 32: "I LOVE CHORES THE PLACE IS SO CLEAN NOW AAAAH"

Ever see a picture that attacks you personally?

We're on the left lately. It'll flip soon.

Currently going through these articles on replacing guilt as motivation and instead using a real, intrinsic motivator of your choice.

I've noticed our opponents (religious fundamentalists, fascists, etc) don't guilt-trip themselves but instead are focused on changing the world to their ideal image. If I want to put up effective resistance against them, I have to learn to stop beating myself up and focus on my actions.

#abortion, #politics 

I wish we could change the "pro-life" moniker to "pro-birth" or "anti-choice". If you are "pro-life", you should be advocating for universal healthcare, childcare, education funding, housing access, and more.

Being 'pro-life' makes it sound noble, but I haven't met anyone 'pro-life' that's also for the above things.

@RussellTheFox Hey! Thanks for your stream yesterday! It was actually kinda relaxing to just watch you nyoom across tracks like that. Also how you barely ever made mistakes on turns... You're really good at it!

What do you think Isabelle is always drinking every time she does the news? It's the same drink every day...

I'm convinced pianos are a scam from BIG LOCKSMITH to sell us more KEYS

This has to be one of the cutest ways to learn the flexbox model for CSS: flexboxfroggy.com/

Thank you to whoever made sunflower butter. You had a chance to stop at peanut and call it good, but then you said, "no, we can do BETTER."

I should let my partner pick my outfits more often. Behold, an adorable abomination!

is the best thing to happen to the internet, honestly. Okay, besides the actual invention of the internet... and all the improvements... Cats!
