I'm aware that this picture is slightly askew (apologies for those of you who didn't notice until now!). My excuse is that I was shooting in burst mode to try to catch them as closely as possible before they sensed my approach.

I need a phone with optical zoom. 😅

Bleh, I think I thinned out my Seche Vite too much. It's challenging to find that precise amount of goopiness that will flow for a clean surface but is still viscous enough to form a solid layer and hopefully not get the underlying polish on the brush.

Also, as a maintainer you're used to hearing your project being criticized all the time, because people usually only take the time to mail you when they're facing a problem they can't solve.

Sometimes, just sometimes, someone will send you a short, sweet mail saying "Hey, I'm using this and it's great. Thank you for making this!".

Be that kind of positivity in life! ❤️

covid 

This is where we're at, 100,000s of times, across the country. Like with most things in education, what happens with schools is just a symptom of what's happening in the community.

Those kids learned that they don't have to care about other people, and people who do should be mocked. They learned that from their parents and community leaders, and the consequence is a broken community. One that *doesn't* and *can't* care for its members. In what sense is that a community?

This story has a little peak at the damage that's being done by the corrupt and ignorant national leadership, just have to read these quotes in the opposite order that they're printed:

“It will take a team effort of students, parents, Paulding County staff, and the community but that’s what our community does best,”

“Today, I have six students out of 80 students wearing masks and not only that, I had students making fun of the fact that I chose to wear a mask,"

Your irregular reminder that wage theft is one of the biggest crimes in our country, but it's not a criminal offense. Because capitalism controls our country.

I need to make it abundantly clear for everyone I see being accelerationist.

I WILL die if Trump stays in office

This isn't a threat. This is a reality due to my health conditions.

You need to face this and acknowledge that saying that Trump is the best for the revolution because it will destroy the DNC and force revolution early, you are saying that you want me to die.

If you want change asap, why don't you go volunteer instead for a cause you care about.

Harris has some issues, like all of the candidates did, but please do not start up with some extra high level of scrutiny on her right now moreso then you would a white man in the same position.

Interpersonal relationship advice 

When you are first getting to know someone, especially in a friend or dating context, pay attention to how they react when you say no to something small.

A person who is genuinely interested in your friendship/getting to know you will accept your "no" and either continue on with no issue, or will try to compromise and come up with a solution that works for both of you (rescheduling, picking a different place to go, etc).

A dangerous person won't accept a "no".
