Hi, I'm Mikayla! I live in (MA, USA) and build for on . I'm adjacent and one of my side projects is a plugin for . I also love to make things, especially and , and my interests are too numerous to list 😁

I love that it's almost entirely women - the exact opposite of most tech conferences - and there are lots of awesome women here in one place. But pretty much everything else is absolutely antithetical to me.

I've been to a lot of conferences and few have made me feel as alone as

I accept that I'm cynical and broken but is it too much to ask to have more random conversations with cool women than creepy guys at ?

I wasn't openly a woman in college but spent the entire time being miserable about that (crying myself to sleep and self destructive) and feeling isolated from my classmates

They're talking about their experiences as women in college - I can't directly relate and wishing I could is super triggering

At a bar at alone and there's a few other women having an interesting conversation and I dunno whether it's appropriate to try to join in. Potent mix of ettiquette unfamiliarity, social anxiety and trans impostor syndrome 😞

This @wildbangarang@twitter.com dress is 🔥🔥🔥

Would be nice if I could get in to actually, you know, meet other queer people

In the line for the @lesbiantech@twitter.com event at and I wish this many "allies" would show up for events without the lure of drinks and jobs 🙃

Ah yes I'll have the macmac + maccheese +cheesemac + cheesecheese

Worst part is not being to work from home while mildly sick 🤧

So much for finishing the @DestinyTheGame@twitter.com Moments of Triumph. At least I got the t-shirt I guess 🤷‍♀️

My CPU or motherboard spontaneously died last night, I had to disassemble my hard line water loop to diagnose, and I'll be without a working PC at home for a couple weeks while I RMA stuff and rebuild, how's your Wednesday?
