OK, I am moving over to @olamina . Follow me there please!

Thought 1: I am bad at everything. I have failed. I give up.

Thought 2: Tomorrow, maybe I'll finally get back to studying Kafka and Zookeeper.

Why do I do this to myself? 😢

Bummed that so many people I liked a whole lot moved to instances that block main. I guess I had better hunt down an alt. Siiiiigh

Nowruz Mubarak! / Happy New Year!

Celebrated by people from various cultures all over the world for over 3,000 years, Nowruz—“now” meaning new and “ruz” meaning day—is the Persian/Zoroastrian New Year.

Nowruz takes place every year on the day of the vernal equinox, signifying the start of spring in the northern hemisphere.

inception-level machinations to accuse a black person of racism/ probably avoid if you're not black 😉

A black person calling a particular group of Asians "house niggas" is certainly something... but calling it racist is the depth of intellectual sloth.

To be honest, I wish the accused would just seriously engage with the critique.

Blew my students' minds when I told them I have gotten paid for none of my work, and even the books I'm in I won't get a cent for.

Welcome to the world of academia, where publishers are the landlords of knowledge (someone on here shared that phrasing and it is so applicable).

If you, or somebody you know, are interested in live streaming outside of the existing corporate ecosystems or want to try something new, the project is going to offer some free instances that we manage for people who don't have the experience or resources to do so themselves. We'll start small, but share this with your friends, family, non-profits, creative organizations or anybody who might want to live stream using Owncast.

On Saturday night I received my first vaccination dose against COVID-19. I've had minimal side effects and the appointment went very smoothly. Here's a longish post about eligibility in New York, booking the appointment, and how the process went.

Personal limit announcement

The :NoAt: symbol means that a reply would be unwelcome, or maybe that there's a certain kind of reply that would be unwelcome

If you ignore it, I might ask you to have the unwelcome conversation you're trying to have with me somewhere else

Instead of "Millenials are babies that can't leave their parent's house and afford their own place", we should say "21st century culture changed into a patrilocal clan structure".

Through the Power of the Internet I was able to join the Brazilian Translation Club in a lively (and packed!) discussion on a short story by black Brazilian writer Conceição Evaristo alongside a translation. Evaristo was in attendance and raised excellent points about race and accent in text and translation. The translator raised good points about tone and accessibility. I'm pleased that after only one year of Portuguese, I am fluent enough to dip my toes into nuanced debates like this!
