So I’m now studying a Bachelor of Arts majoring in creative writing and (intending to) minor in anthropology.
Well, technically I will be come July 1. 😊

Not sure folk are aware that using Google fonts by URL in their CSS undermines the privacy of each and every site visitor, sending their IP to GG with every visit. How? Because with each visit they download the font from GG, not your server.

If you will use GG fonts, don't do this

@import url('fonts.googleapis.com/css?famil[...]

Download that font, and resource it locally instead

@font-face {
font-family: FontName';
font-style: normal;
src: url('../fonts/FontName.woff2');
[...]
}

to throw all the winds of change at myself at once I also (re)applied to university.

it shouldn't matter either, but something in the heart of this small fox has always longed to have a degree

thank you lovelies for the nice messages. 🦊 💜

I applied for the job.
I mean, if I think it sucks or if I chicken out or can't bear to leave, I can always change my mind and say "no", after all.
I'm not signing over my first-born, or my novel.

that's if I even get an offer. perhaps it won't even matter. and that is perfectly okay too.

I’m thinking of changing jobs, but I’m scared of change. What if it’s *worse*?

I also have devolved a false sense of what friendship is, from spending 8 years in the company of people to whom I have no concept of my own value, if such even exists.

I just want to write; I’m tired of feeling so freakish & isolated.

~Gardenia~ by malice mizer reminds me I still have a heart; it’s a wish for how it would be, one day, with someone precious

~Garnet~ is the song of my soul, and reminds me I will be okay even if I remain in this solitary confinement forever until death&beyond

(&if I never learn more than my rudimentary bits&pieces of Japanese I should one day ask my lovely @evenstar to translate them both; the YouTube versions really don’t do them justice ^^;;)

imagine you wake up one morning and your options for the day are do I end world hunger or buy twitter?

among all the other things I long to write: faeriepunk dark fantasy stories. probably under another name.

last night I watched a yt video with every windows bsod from windows 1-windows 11 and made myself hell nostalgic hearing the start up sounds for 95, 98, nt4, and 2000.

this is how I “party” when I go back to work…

I like that this little corner is beginning to resemble the torn-off threads of the Weaveworld.

I feel like we're an ancient few: disparate wild things, born of another long-lost land that dwelt many dark and iridescent dreams from here, drawn together by a light in the eyes and an artisan's spider-skills upon the loom.

Places don't last, but we do.

also, birbhellweb is getting desperate with its notifications. “Look at these three random tweets from people you don’t follow on topics you have zero interest in! You’ll come back to me now for sure!”

Just… no.

I find it sad that for some sites, archive.org/Alexa got there too late…

a gift from someone I helped at work today. A nice way to begin my week off. xx

and now I’ve gotten that out of my system I hope to return to being myself xx

telling one of your employees with mental health issues that after 5 minutes in their company someone accused them of having a personality disorder that legit makes them a horrible person is on par with telling one of your employees recovering from an eating disorder “that person said you’re fat”. Poisonous, and completely not necessary.

venturing out of my foxhole and daring to add more people to my reading timeline around here. I'm not particularly interesting but I'm trying to be brave &not so self-critical by allowing myself to press that "follow" button ^.^;;

a redesign of my status.cafe page is probably the *most* procrastinatory thing I could do today ;p
