Time for an post!

I'm an old woman and even though there is definitely some queerness going on my identity I go by she/her pronouns. I transitioned well over a decade ago. In fact, it's been so long it is at times easy to forget I'm trans at all.

Some of current hobbies include (you can follow my work on the tag), playing (though I play much less than I used to), and . I play both on consoles and PC. I have a setup and a .

I tend to stick to singleplayer games; usually (action) RPGs, sandboxes, turn-based strategy (mostly ) , and all types of puzzle games. I don't exactly have the reflexes anymore to play most platformers or shooters and the likes. Quick-Time Events are my enemy.

My body is broken and living with chronic pain hampers my physical ability throughout the day. I have to carefully plan my chores and appointments throughout the day/week as too much activity can leave me exhausted for days.

I am passionate about and and almost always have some crazy new project in my head which I may or may not be actually smart enough to accomplish. I try to adopt applications when able and am somewhat of a and security advocate.

Media has shaped and continues to shape much of my life. I love , movies, , , popcorn action flicks, , , and the other usual geeky stuff. Especially fond of old and shows and movies.

I am and may not always 'get' the proper context or tone but it mostly manifests in hyperfocus and making obscure pop culture references.

I was lucky enough to grow up with access to all kinds of technology and computers during the rise of computing - and later, the internet - which made me naturally tech-literate and able to 'speak' computer though that doesn't mean I can program at all. We just have a mutual understanding.

Genuine question: Why do people still use birdsite? Is it just to follow a bunch of celebs? Or do you actually participate in the discourse? And if so, why?

Euro Truck Simulator 2 is on sale and it is SO TEMPTING!!

humanity spent 10,000 years constructing a whole society, perfecting agriculture, just so we could get fat. and this fucking century we decided that being skinny is attractive

It feels like an unpopular opinion, but liking things is more fun than hating things, and talking about things you like will make you feel better about life than talking about things you hate.

I have a simple rule. Once I sign my art it is done. The only exception is if there's a big glaring mistake but that's rare.

Purpose is that I don't want to fall into the rabbit hole of 'fixing' every single little thing and barely finish a painting at all.

Especially since I'm still very much in the studying phase - getting stuck on a single painting is not going to improve my skills any faster.

any mildly tolerable content made by a large company probably could have been made 3x over 3x better if you could remove all the time spent undoing stupid dumbass bosses ideas

You know how walking through a doorway can make you forget what you were going to do?

Well.. this, but with opening a new browser tab.

New pfp! A cleaned up version of my Catra art I posted earlier. :)

Catra! Finally got around to making another piece of art. It's rough, but I like it.

Saw a screenshot of a text conversation and the date said September 14 and my first thought was that it wasn't even close to September yet so it's gotta be fake. Then I realized it's already October. 2020 is weird y'all.
