hot take
feeling envy isn't a bad thing. It's an emotion. They come without announcing their approach.

What you do with your emotions is what matters. Holding on to negative feelings, feeding them and acting on them is what one should avoid.

But bottling up emotions and denying their existence? Don't do that.

If you don't believe in yourself, I'll believe in you until you will too.

reminder (for myself too):
It's ok to question,
it's ok to be unsure,
it's ok to be confused,
it's ok to change you mind,
it's ok to be vulnerable,
it's also ok to be completely sure about yourself with nothing to question.

If you're having dark day, I hope there's somebody for you to reach out for. If not, reach out for me. I can't do much, but we can be confused together.

I'm Tuula and like tinkering with code and little toy soldiers (mostly 15mm ancients). I try to pick up reading again, preferably something that isn't code related. Currently that something seems to be .

I'm somewhat confused who or what I am, so you can expect steady stream of toots about that if you decide to follow me.

And I'll try to be generally friendly and safe person to be around.

Squirrel got a jackpot. They first thought of hiding it, but got distracted and ran away. So I put the fallen part to a feeder designed for fat balls. Too bad squirrel, you had your chance for a great feast.


took kid for vaccination. When me, my partner and our kid walk in, the nurse looks us slightly unsure and asks me if I'm the mother. Of course I stumble with my words, but manage to point the partner somehow xD

Today’s card is The Emperor, who protects her stony realm with many rules and laws. It’s a day to set boundaries and stick to them, or look to the letter of the law for safety and stability. But only for as long as you need it - don’t let the structures you build become a trap

sparrows are the worst. For some reason they keep throwing down like half of the seeds on the feeder without eating them.

Just finished Non-Player Character by @vicorva ! I was excited when I first read the kickstarter pledge, and the final book did not disappoint!

It's a story of found family, queerness, and learning more about yourself in a magical portal fantasy with a happy ending. It features characters with anxiety, autism, chronic pain, and all manner of sexualities! It's so much my shit and I'm so glad it exists in the world!

More details about the book with links to purchase it can be found here:
