introduction, mention of kink
New instance, new #introduction ... well, hello.
I am Juni, your friendly fat queer old hag from next door. I am enby, a bit of a bore, journalist by trade, I live in what germans call a big city, and I want to outsleep (or, depending on my mood, overthrow) capitalism and install fully automated luxury gay space communism with extra-well appointed darkrooms.
Also, I like chocolate and flowers.
Yeah I know. With my skin tone, I positively have to avoid the high summer sun. But I like it when my feet just do not look like curd cheese when sandal season comes, so I am using those precious soft spring sun rays to get some tan on them.
🇵🇹 pt politics, covid-19 (long)
Over here in Portugal the number of infected people is at 78 (no deaths yet), 10 days after the first confirmed case, and tonight the government announced a number of special policies that come into effect starting next week, aimed at attempting to slow down contagion.
The biggest one is the suspension of classes (for two weeks, plus two weeks of easter break).
Parents of kids under 12 who will need to stay at home with them will receive 66% of their salary (or minimum wage, whichever is larger), half of that covered by the government, and will count as a justified absence from work.
There's also a big emphasis on remote work whenever possible.
Night clubs are not to open, and there are restrictions on the number of people allowed in supermarkets and shopping centres so that safe distances can be put in place. Restaurants are also limited to 2/3 of capacity for the same reason.
Visits to retirement home are restricted, so as to protect older people who are more vulnerable.
Non-residents cannot disembark from cruise ships, but I hope this is revised so that help can be provided to those who need it, if that happens (no official word on it though).
For now there aren't any changes to public transportation, or limits on purchases of food and other items. Retailers and their supply chains told the government that they can keep working and there are no shortages in sight for essential goods.
selfie, eye contact
Despite that ever-growing stubble, I can not help but feeling pretty today. #FineFemmeFriday
You know what's funny? When I look how my style has developed, it is utterly surprising to me. I would have never believed that I would do this kind of super bright paintings! I would never have guessed that my work would look like this. Never! For years I struggled with color and mainly stuck to pencil drawings out of fear to mess up.
Here, my last 6 paintings. #artistLife #artistProblems #mastoArt #traditionalArt #art
new wave of new users, self promotion
A large amount of people are joining the fediverse because another nazi bought large amounts of Twitter if I understand it correctly.
Well, I think this would be a good time to plug my "how to keep using the fediverse" blogpost again.
