Right now I'm privileged to be living with my mom and dad after I had to give up my apartment; my uncle agreed to rent his house to me but he also decided to do a huge renovation on it and that's taking longer than initially expected. I love my parents but also struggle to live with them as an adult.

It's a change to be in their quiet, upper-middle-class and very White neighborhood in St. Paul after living in Uptown in Minneapolis, which has a wider economic and racial mix of residents.

I try to CW my talk about politics, my posts about (the early stages of recovery from) my eating disorder, and anything else heavy about mental illness, weight or body shape, or exercise. I appreciate it when other folks do the same. If you need a CW from me, please ask!

I try to do media descriptions and usually only boost posts without them if there's a reply post with a description; I'll write one if I have spoons.

My dog is named Izzy and I love her so very much. She's a black Great Dane.

I'm Stel when I'm online. I use she/her pronouns for myself but it's cool if you use they/them for me.

I live in St. Paul, which is the capitol city of the state of Minnesota in the US. Along with Minneapolis (which is just the other side of the Mississippi River) St. Paul is one of the Twin Cities that make up the core of the largest metro area in the state.

I'm perpetually unemployed; my brain doesn't cooperate with full-time software development but I've been trying to force it to.

I don't usually approve follow requests from accounts that haven't interacted with me. Take a little time to read some of my posts and maybe drop me a note. I never approve requests from accounts without bios and/or intro posts.

I don't always follow back right away. The likelihood that I'll request to follow someone goes up over time as I get a better sense of who you are.

My dad grew a giant pumpkin patch in my uncle's back yard. My friend brought her kiddo over the other day to pick out jack-o-lantern pumpkins and help me harvest them! 🎃

one of many neato things about being an enby is no one can tell you you're not.
"but you don't look queer"
well you don't look like an asshole yet here we are

DIY Antlers 

Done! After trying it on midway through I decided getting the bases a very dark brown would blend in better with my hair. The rusted metal of the headband blends in with my hair pretty well too, and the places where it was still shiny I just added some brown acrylic paint

It's small and light enough that I wore it for a few minutes and forgot I had it on, and it stays in place well. A few bobby pins across the ends and it should be very secure

Later I'll get a photo with it on!
