I don't like talking about myself to other people but this entire feed is basically going to be me talking to myself about myself and the projects I'm working on, interesting things I'm learning, fascination, etc etc and you're all welcome to see for as long as I can stand being unlocked. πŸ—οΈ

Thanks to the mods for providing a great instance and space to share, Mastodon is very intuitive and welcoming to me so far, and it's my first time trying.

My new strategy to avoid meeting fatigue is to say what I think within the first 10 minutes and then mentally check out while everyone else takes turns saying that I'm right and they couldn't have said it better for the remainder of the hour.

The iPad doesn't have a native calculator app???????? This thing wants to be able to translate my handwriting to text and measure objects with my camera but I can't DO MATH?? Shouldn't it have some kind of badass mathematics app? What is happening??

Got my flu shot last week. πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’‰

I remembered that I have cute glasses I don't wear anymore because I never need to see anything far away from my face these days.

Do any of you know anything about LED light sensitivity?

It makes no sense to me that I can have LED bulbs in my office, play pinball with lights flashing at me incessantly for hours, and use an LED therapy lamp with zero issues, but the new LED floor lamp I got seems to be giving me a headache? I don't even look directly at it.

I don't know why you forwarded me your energy bill, Michael, but I'm not paying it.

People are getting stupider and they can't remember or type their email addresses properly so I'm increasingly getting messages not intended for me, including from Planned Parenthood and invitations to fourth grade math class. I'm going to have to use another email address for things I want to actually come to me and completely ignore this one.

Oh my god how DARE my tech stocks plummet down to where they were on *checks notes* August 26th.

Going for blood on TV static, which nail looks better?

FYI, if you like chocolate and don't like slavery, there are a bunch of companies committed to improving the whole industry to make it more transparent and get rid of exploitation. And I can almost guarantee the chocolate they produce will taste better too.

I just found a list and it's now on my tumblr, if you'd like to know more:

It is with a heavy heart that I report I ordered samples of this and the "storm" ink isn't charcoal grey like the picture, but a completely unacceptable dark teal. I also don't like the pony skin texture.

The black gloss over matte black, while my absolute favorite combination of colors, is too dark and the gloss too strange to work in any room I'll live in.
