Suicide PSA 

If anyone is ever feeling suicidal please dm me. I'm not a certified anything, but I've been close to suicide.

I am always here to be a nonjudgmental listening ear. I may not be able to respond right away because I have a job and other adult obligations, but I will always respond eventually.

I can't convince you to live. I can try, but ultimately that's on you.

What I can do is be your moral support cheerleader here on the Fediverse.

So I'm here.

And you will never bother me.

Note: If I make grammatical mistakes in my toots, I'm just mentally stimulated at the time. If I delete and retoot it's likely because of cringe grammar.

Currently working on nixing that with some grammar workbooks.

Truthfully I don't know what the hell I'm doing, but I feel a pulse so I'm gonna go after it.

I found a video that brings up why it's important to converse with the intent to learn. It's a white person talking so hopefully it won't alienate her too much. I'm a bit scared to send it to her because I do enjoy her company. But the rational part of me knows that if she takes offense then... I guess we're not friends anymore.

One of my co-workers is really taking the current social climate and making herself a victim out of it. For the most part, I've been taking everything that's going on and reflecting on my blackness internally. But the way my co-worker talks about how she can't talk, and how if she does talk she'll be called racist because she's white and doesn't want to be called that because she's not — that really irks me.

As we've always taken a stand against state surveillance, we stand now against state violence — especially as it's inflicted disproportionately on the Black community. We stand with those seeking justice for the brutality committed by our unjust system.

I'm going to try posting an actual piece of writing and see if people have thoughts or suggestions. I'd love to get that going again, so here you go:

I am learning all sorts of racist shit about people in my life that I never wanted to know.

I thought they knew I was black. I don't know if I didn't tell them or they're just conveniently ignoring that fact.

Here is a template in PDF format of the Mastodon Paper-Toy.
You will need scissors, glue and a cutter. It may take a bit of patience as well ^^

Avatar (no spoilers) 

My online friends convinced me to watch Avatar years ago. I appreciated it then, because it gave us something to talk about and the universe was really cool.

I never finished it though, I think school took over. I got to midway of season two.

I'm glad I'm coming back to it now as an adult, I'm noticing so much more and I can appreciate it so much more.

Avatar is amazing.

Avatar Season 2 spoilers 

I have a hard time stomaching animal cruelty normally, but holy shit this arc was heartbreakingly painful.

I fucking bawled so hard those few episodes my partner hard to calm me down.

I like Appa, but I did not expect to go the wailing ugly cry route. Guess I was attached to him more than I thought.

Now Appa and Aang are reunited 💕 All is well.

Now they can deal with those Earth Kingdom fuckers as a team ✊

Zine submission deadline extension. Disability, lightly implied kink. 

We've extended our deadline to July 15th!


Crips with Whips is a zine about sex, love and disability. 
The best thing? It’s for us, by us and about us.


We want your fiction, your real stories, your funny anecdotes, your kinky poetry. We want your fantasy art, your sexy selfies, your... creative uses of accessibility aids. 


If you’ve got it, we want it. Send your stuff to cripswithwhips@mania.systems by 15th July 2020.

I've been tweaking this long reflection for weeks. I feel weird that I've put so much time and energy into something that's only gonna be on my personal blog, but I don't feel like I'm avoiding anything through this. So that's a positive.

Anyone know anything about an open-source fiction book writing project ? I'm starting a brainstorm about that and I don't know if it's already been done.

Lying in bed philosophical thoughts!

There's the famous saying "I think therefore I am" but I've long since come to disagree with this. We aren't our thoughts: our thoughts are things that happen to us. Anyone who has trouble controlling their thoughts can relate to this.

We also aren't our feelings. Like thoughts, they just happen. Feelings come and go like the weather and sometimes you just have to accept that and get through them.

Think I'm gonna make a separate Write.as for my non-journal writings. Just so they'll be separated from my poetry + universes.

I've got my cute lil' notebook and my fountain pens ready to jot down ideas before I turn in. And my kitties resting by my feet.

This is a nice way to end the day.

Though I am slightly pressed I didn't get to hear all of Dancing Mad the first time because I overleveled tf out of my party 😔
