I sure did love* getting significant revision notes and a deadline of one week to complete them. And probably this won't end well anyway, given everything else. Oh well, it's for now.

*I did not love it.

I spent one day in Jail and it was absolutely horrific and now you’re saying if I didn’t happen to be born here I could’ve been kept there INDEFINITELY

to be clear detainment isn’t some Orange Is The New Black communal life shit

Detainment is being kept in a cell possibly alone with no free access to water or toilet paper or any kind of stimulus and they MIGHT feed you so.

I N D E F I N I T E L Y

Undocumented immigrant detainment centers are concentration camps

Australia is having a Bird of the Year poll and NZ, not content with making their politicians invalid and trying to adopt their refugees, is now striving to elect the Ibis as their new Bird Ruler.

Expect the final post on Friday, so you can read while you sling together leftover sandwiches.

Please only answer if you joined Mastodon within the last 7 days. What would have made the instance list on joinmastodon.org more useful for you?

Yes indeed, a flat tire is exactly what should have happened today.

For me, Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality is the canon now. The original books have too many seams. Okay, telling people to read a fanfic is a hard sell because of the fanfic stigma, plus the first 10 or so chapters have a different style to the rest of the book, after 3 or so years I've given up personally recommending it to anyone and expecting results

Also the fact that this one fanfic is longer than the 7 original books

Four liters of medical grade laxative and a laptop are all I needed to finish my finals on time, even when I was surprised by a deadline a week earlier than I expected.

Yay~😐

I know we're a long way to go, but I wanted to let you know that I've added a tangible goal to my Patreon! at $500 I'm getting an AC unit for the home-office, because it's barely May and it's already getting too hot in here!!

I appreciate all the support i'm getting, and I'm kinda at a loss for words at how many of you appreciate the work I put in to working here at Mastodon <3

Thank you!

I mean, I have higher hopes for my classes than this, but if all I end up doing for this set of students is having taught them meditation isn't some "woo-woo horseshit," then I guess I can ride into the sunset happily, bouncing around until I have to get off and pee behind a bush, probably still in sight of the town that is, in this metaphor, my students.
