So I guess I didn't announce it but I've been on a break from social media. I'm going to probably continue for a while. Thanks to the new volunteer mods that have stepped up to help @t54r4n1 in my absence! I'm still handling tech admin things behind the scenes.

Take care!

My bio has probably all the relevant information. But for the new folks, an / post I can pin:

I'm the admin of mspsocial.net though you may know me better from other recent public activities. Contact me if you have questions about the instance or adjusting to mastodon generally.

Other things I do are bike, play volleyball, and get cancelled for being a pragmatist.

I am selective about allowing followers so I can be comfortable posting privately.

Do not feel like you are under any obligation to contribute! You're welcome here whether or not you choose to support financially... In fact, posting and hanging out here is the best form of support.

It could grow into something more, but it doesn't have to!

I just want to say that it's kind of fucked up that you and I are expected to continue performing at high levels through a pandemic, but in the last six months I've watched various bedrock foundational systems including federal education and public health systems fail and basic routine stuff like home sale transactions get botched.

Things aren't great!

Snark, genital mention, WPATH compliance 

Now give me my vag you cowards

This is all pretty stressful, and different kinds and magnitudes of stress for different people in different situations.

Be extra kind to others and to yourself if you can.

Misandry status: went to a women's networking event and laughed loudly at the concept of men and how they are.

Going to reinterpret Nietzsche's philosophy of the overman after it turns out she's trans.

I mean....

Getting smoothleg after 65 miles of biking: so rewarding

Just used the phrase "Encyclopedias Brown" in a work email ama

I might have either taken a bold step to advance my career today, or I might have walked myself off a cliff and I will hang suspended in mid-air Wile E Coyote style until I am forced to look down.
