One of the things I've always found somewhat annoying about having ADHD is the extreme irritability that occurs when my brain has decided to hyperfocus on something and I have the desire for solitude to focus on that thing, but my surroundings and the expectations of other people around me are not allowing for that to happen because it's making demands on my attention. It's hard to convey to people just how distressing it is....

After having somewhat inadvertently taken a semi-hiatus from all social media all summer because my life got too busy, I'm finding myself dipping a toe back in and finding the whole dang thing so overstimulating.

Listening to your friends mix the horn part of their new album while having an ear infection is a special kind of hell.

My life seems to be going in one of those cycles where I forget the Internet exists... and I don't hate that.

So if cassettes had certain advantages, why are they nowadays a distant 3rd after vinyl and CDs?

The answer is that cassettes have three problems:

1. Premium decks are no longer being made
2. Premium tape is no longer being made
3. Most pre-recorded tapes today don't even have noise cancellation

Do I still enjoy them? Yes—but almost anything you buy new is light years away from experience audiophiles had in the 80s and 90s.

Whatever you receive off Bandcamp, take it with a grain of salt.

brain is also like, "Let's look up inspiration to turn a Honda Fit into a tiny camper van!"

And then I'm like, "Yes, but if you wanted to do that, you should have be watching these videos months ago...."

Trying to motivate to start packing for spring/summer adventures, and brain is like... "But I wanna work on my website instead!"

It used to be (more) common for people to write HTML in a way where it would (also) look good in a Terminal based web browser.

It used to be (more) common for people to write HTML & CSS in a way where it would (still) look good if the CSS was not applied.

It used to be (more) common for people to write HTML & JavaScript in a way where it would (still) look good & (still) work if the JavaScript wasn't executed.

Those don't seem to be the norm nowadays.

Thinking a lot today about online communication patterns between people, and how sometimes misunderstandings and tension can happen because people have disparately different patterns with social media, DMs, texting, etc.

Call me crazy, but maybe free speech isn't about choosing the "right" billionaire or government to protect it.

Maybe if we want free speech, we should make it impossible for billionaires and governments to shut it down.

I gotta be missing something... I don't want to entirely override the SASS of my base theme, just add to it.
