I'm not sure if I really went any where with that. tl;dr, self-compassion, self-love goes a long way. It's really hard to learn, especially in the predominate culture we have, but it's so worth every step you make, trust me

I'm real sorry, but I don't remember who originally linked this article but this is a really good read on self-compassion vs self-esteem

WANTED:

Self employed advocate for an autistic person with EDS. Gwynedd, Wales.

OFFERED:

Money.

(I'm in a bad place! I need help.)

Just a reminder I've moved my personal stuff to @Raelynn, dunno what I'll really use this account for once things stabilize in my life and I find a new place/job. Maybe if I can actually dig into Mastodon source code it'll be helpful. I just don't talk politics much since I feel out of my depth and I'm talking over people who know way better, I just do my best to listen honestly

Current work situation:

I was given an additional month on my PiP after I talked with a lawyer and came forward about sexual harassment I had been experiencing. While this is a huge relief I'm still in jeopardy of losing my job and I think it's about time I move forward anyway. I'd appreciate any out reach if anyone has any connections in tech for more trans friendly environment in the Portland / Seattle area! If you contact me here I can send you a resume ASAP!

Please boost

Current living situation:

I still need to find a place by the end of May, the sooner the better tbh. I may be able to work out keeping my current place if someone can the other room which is going for about 600. Though honestly finding a cheaper place is a much better option. I'm a 25 year old gay transwoman who works in tech looking for a roommate in Portland or Seattle (tho that would be a bigger move). If you know anyone also searching I'd appreciate reaching out!

Please boost

Phew, okay, finally got some more updated resumes sent out! Think I'll do a quick update on my current situation

well that was, disheartening. Had a really good game of Vainglory going as Alpha, was on my best kill streak yet of like 20 somethin, just released the kraken and then just, nope, connection lost ;_;

Quick question about resumes for those who've changed their name. My legal name change is tomorrow (🙆‍♀️!!!🙆‍♀️), should I list previous name on my resume since my past jobs won't have my new name on file? I'm nervous cause this obviously marks me as trans since the name is going from masculine to feminine, but if they actually call any of my past work places no one would know my new name

A word of warning to anyone upgrading to Mastodon 1.3(.1)!!!

Starting with 1.3(.1) Private posts will federate! But they don't do so securely! Warnings are built in but be aware that if you have followers on GNU Social, Friendica, or postActiv then they will **NOT** know that your post is marked private/followers-only!! And they **will** be able to boost it!! Once they do so, it becomes a public post

This is not opt-in, it just happens post-update

If this worries you, go audit your followers

Thank you everyone whose boosted this, really appreciate the responses and those who have given me resources to go through for job hunting. If I haven't gotten back to you yet I probably missed it cause my notifications have been scrolling by so fast haha. Please let me know if I still haven't gotten back to you about any tech jobs in the Portland/Seattle area, I'm super open to remote positions as well! Again I super appreciate ya'll, homelessness is not fun, here's hoping something sticks
