@bunny_jane "You'll grow out of it!" nah, what they mean is you'll stop being yourself because you're too scared to have fun because it's not Adultlike. Screw that.
Our world is chock full of examples why capitalism cannot be sustained. From climate change, to the pandemic, to the much more basic problems like food insecurity, a world designed so that an elite few can appease their greed is ill equipped to deal with any of the serious problems we face. Only a world which doesn’t demand that everything be profitable can do that.
My advice if you ever work for free for anyone: write them an invoice with the REAL value, and then add a 100% discount.
Even when you work for free, you want people to know that this work has value, some real one :)
games are so weird about max party size when they try to have npcs decline your party invite bc 'too many people' while they are in character
npc: 'i'm lost alone in the wilderness and horrible things will happen to me without access to a skilled healer, we should band together'
npc: "looks like you're already traveling with a substantial group. maybe later."
me: "and I thought *my* social anxiety was bad"
