Sweet project manager, I cannot code - slender Aphrodite has overcome me with longing for a girl.

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.

I like armstreet.com/store/medieval-c and armstreet.com/store/medieval-c quite a bit (always liked the slightly muted colours). They're not really that great for everyday use I suppose.

Or if I wanted to be really fancy, armstreet.com/store/medieval-c is really nice too.

girl can dream, right? :blobcatgiggle:

browsing ArmStreet made me all wistful. I would love to be a princess for a weekend, but with those prices it's not very likely.

And clothes would need some adjustment to fit, but there's nothing new in that :blobcatgiggle:

oli kyllä taas aika up in Timo's ass - lomalta paluu.

Lisää kaasua, vaikka vähän sattuisikin, ehkä se pian helpottaa 💪

It's getting closer to the demo date of my game now, so if you guys wanna keep up on news and stuff (since I don't post to Masto that much) feel free to join my chatroom

Bobby Fischer Teachess Chess should have been named Little Chesser (it uses the same question-answer format).

the sheer audacity, I'm shocked.

Doctor said today that I'm transgender. Yes, me, can you believe it?

😹 :flag_transgender: :ms_sparkles:

you know it's hot when cats aren't bothered by the vacuum cleaner. All three were just lying on their tree, barely looking up when I vacuumed the room.

I finished Tally Ho and Player's Heart and those are on the better side of choose your own adventures. Especially Tally Ho was fun with its Jeeves and Wooster type of antics.

I was juggling at park couple days ago and one little kid started clapping, so naturally I curtsied while doing a flourish with clubs :blobcatgiggle:

OMG! I'm so excited to announce that through my work at @spritelyinst we've published A Scheme Primer: spritely.institute/news/the-sp
Direct link: spritely.institute/static/pape

This document manages to serve two purposes:
- As a quick skim, it's a reasonable intro to "how to start programming with Scheme with no prior experience". Hey, tutorials are useful!
- But also, in less than 30 pages we manage to compress a TON of computer science ideas in a way that I think is really, really approachable.

The document ends with a code example, and full walkthrough, of a Scheme interpreter written in Scheme... in a mere 30 lines of code! It's like 3/4 of Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs compressed into a document you could read in an afternoon!

She would always like to say
Why change the past
When you can own this day?
Today she will fight
To keep her way
She's a rogue and a thief
And she'll tempt your fate :ms_music_notes:

the sound of open xylitol box falling on the counter, followed with driply-bouncy sound of pastilles scattering on the counter and on the kitchen floor :blobcatgiggle:

miten muunsukupuolisten esim. hormonikorvaushoito menee nykyisin Suomessa? Vieläkö on käytännössä vaatimus että on selkeästi mies tai nainen, vai onko tuo näkemys höllentynyt? Kaverille yritän etsiä tietoa nykytilanteesta.

I made a good thing.
Couple weeks ago there was a discussion in LinkedIn about what your company is doing for inclusivity (and having pride coloured logo didn't count). Former colleague was asking practical examples of things they could do more and I suggested that ability to use one's chosen name in as many places as possible would be good.

Yesterday she got back and said they're building preferred name into core processes of ERP and it'll be used in email account creation among other things.
