OCD, negativity 

I hate how having OCD saps my strength. I like being outdoors and using my body and working hard. My favourite job I've had was doing manual labour last summer. But when it's making me so anxious and nauseous, I'm tired all the time and I have no appetite. I feel weak and I don't like it.

Financial aid, mutual aid, $ beg post, utilities 

So my electric bill and my water/sewer bill back thing just came due at the same time

I won't have any of my disability money to pay for it until the 1st of December

I hate having to post about $ so often
It's just been a rough time

My PayPal is bonemasque@gmail.com

Boosts welcome and appreciated

Thank you y'all

I think we should liberate the gender-neutral suffix "-poke" from the word "cowpoke" and apply it elsewhere. firepoke. mailpoke. chairpoke. businesspoke.

First I teach my dad about anarchism and now he asked me how Mastodon works, so I think I got through to him.

This is a surprisingly good Wikipedia read involving some of my favorite topics (popular literacy in the middle ages, illumination, calligraphy, popular religion in the middle ages...)


If I had a time machine I'd go back to al-Andalus. I hear Granada in the 900s was great.
