I have had an irrational love for Fallout 4 for years -- primarily for the build mode. I would go through the story mode then threaten to make all the settlements look amazing for years now (never did it, by the way).
My friend introduced me to 7 Days to Die (properly -- I've tried several times on my own but never got into it) a few weeks ago. This is now my jam and shitty, old Fallout 4 can sit at the bottom of my Steam list forever!
@miltsghostrehab tbh learning to love being one of the dumber people in the room (or at the very least, not in the top 30%) in college was honestly the greatest rehab for being an overly-anxious tryhard gifted student!
it really helps you to come to terms with things like... "a gentleman's C." and when you've worked your ass off for that C, by god, that is a C you RELISH. and if you have your ass kicked in ways that are learning about fun shit, then fuck it, that's delightful right there!
...okay, that may also be helped by that C being mitigated in zoology by knowing i'm good at big picture and important details, but i took my knocks on the "name this part of the critter from dissection, pls" parts. and i did absolutely comfort myself with "it's ok tho, that's the type of stamp collecting knowledge that just. it's what wikipedia's for. the reference books know it. i'm good" LOL
Practicing neatness with blackletter. Focusing on getting all the letters properly aligned and the same height with good spacing.
Of the three lorem imsum sentences, the first is textualis/textura, the second is the more ornate fraktur, and the third is the curvier rotunda. Fraktur looks a bit messy this small, and I'm not as practiced with rotunda as I am textura.
So, to recap: Elon Musk bought 9% of Twitter's shares, and in the process violated disclosure rules (you have to publicly disclose within a certain amount of time that you've acquired more than 5% of a company's shares, and Musk waited a week too long; this kept stock prices low so he could keep buying).
He believed that Twitter would agree to make him CEO or Chairman based on this purchase, since he was the single largest shareholder.
When they instead just offered him a seat on the board, he threw a tantrum and offered to buy the whole company outright, pushing the stock price up so that when he sells his shares in a fit of pique, he'll make more money.
"So remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious and however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don't just give up." - Stephen Hawking
I think about this quote a lot. I had it written on my desk for a long time.
A week ago last Friday, my partner and I decided to get a divorce. It's sad, but we've decided to remain roommates because we're still fantastic friends.
As soon as we finished deciding we would live together, a thought popped into my mind. Without fear or hesitation, I just said it.
"I've been thinking about having breasts a lot lately."
That was the start of it all. I've been spending a lot of time thinking about my gender and have determined I am a trans woman. I can't wait to get to work on this new me!
Furthermore, I just told my Aunt, who I am very close with, and her exact response was "Oh really?! Well, I guess that makes sense!"
This past week has been so hard. Things are starting to settle, but I don't think they'll stay that way for long.
Some time ago, I was a somewhat active member of this place. I moved to mastodon.technology where I got sort of bored and stopped posting...
But when it came to queer representation, Elekk has always been amazing. Y'all have been great. And right now, I am going through a journey that I want to share with you.
I want to thank you for your love in the past, and now I want to thank you for giving me a forum to discuss my future.
More to come. Much love 💖💖💖
Jake. I am a complicated human who likes the idea of making video games more than actually releasing them.
