Oh look, I dropped the track I was teasing earlier!

Apologies for the 600+ users still on #weechat @ freenode, the channel has been "stolen" by the new hostile admins, after 18 years of presence. "Thank you for using freenode" they say…
You are welcome as soon as possible on!

I know I am terrible at the whole social media thing in general. Yet I can still tell the instances I've been a part of make me feel more included than birdsite

Look it's great you found Communism, just know you probably dont have the luxury to call your boss a "bourgeoisie pig" to his face. (Things I wasn't expecting to type this week)

The pandemic never ended. You're just in a privileged class with vaccine access.

the idea that boys and girls can't have friendships that aren't amorous is one of the worst gender-related things taught to children

Anarchist + autonomous groups took to the streets and held public events across so-called North America celebrating #MayDay this weekend. From mass marches, to picket actions, car caravans, outdoor festivals, block parties, housing takeovers + much more.

Toxic Friendship ramble 

I mean..I guess they are related. I meant I saw something from them unrelated to the previous statement. The person was part of my toxic gaming group....Now I am just rambling and I hate where my head is going..

Depression, toxic friendship. 

Completely unrelated to previous toot. Ran into a post from someone that was fairly toxic in my life on a social media site. I let it go for a long time. Didn't engage obviously..but I looked into what he has been up to the last few years. I'm upset with myself, and I know I shouldn't be. It's really been hard to get past that the last few years, but I have grown a lot since that time. It's just....I don't have any other words for it...hard. It was kind of..oh shit..
