"As we learn to bear the intimacy of scrutiny and to flourish within it, as we learn to use the products of that scrutiny for power within our living, those fears which rule our lives and form our silences begin to lose their control over us."

On interacting with Shrigs 

I don't really think about my own boundries much, but I'll politely tell you if you've stepped over any (unless you're a bit of a dickhead then I'll probs do an angry)
🙅 no using ablest language
🙅 no making non-lewd conversations lewd
💅 you can thirst slide into my DMs but if I don't reciprocate get over it and don't make it weird
💅 unsolicited advice on my behavior is a-ok
💅 CW things as I would if you're in my replies, in fairness to my followers

Yo, I'll tell you what I want, what I really, really want
So tell me what you want, what you really, really want
I'll tell you what I want, what I really, really want
So tell me what you want, what you really, really want
I wanna, (ha) I wanna, (ha) I wanna, (ha) I wanna, (ha)
I wanna really, really, really wanna write a poem with the same pop energy as Spice Girls

Every time I see a COLORS video I get this song stuck in my head afterwards. Neither is a bad thing

work / employment stuff 

Having my first paid staff member starting here on Mondays. I say "staff", really it's somebody on the Kickstart scheme for one day a week that I've had to stress won't be able to have a job here once it's over because I literally can't pay for myself right now. Good to be able to give somebody at least some work though. If they ask me how much I'd pay per hour for her job to figure out what she gets paid through the scheme, she's getting as much as I can swindle x

The blessing: Really good eyes
The curse: Can't read for shit

Today's flex is going to the opticians for a routine eye test and having vision so good that the optometrist goes around the office to show off my results. Gold star for me 👀

I feel bad for only sharing one song from this album now, the whole thing is lush as fuck

Not been having much work in at all for a few weeks now 'cos this isn't a rich town and most folk can't afford to have their computers fixed right now. Not even going to kid myself it's worth sticking around for full days at the office now, the weather's too nice out for being that miserable xox

UK politics 

If the Tories think these are "Militant Unions" at this very early stage of shit hitting the fan in this cost of living crisis wait until they finish with the "fucking around" part of doing nothing about it

Fucking Facebook and their moderation regarding white supremist groups 

Are we supposed to clap at their scratching at the top of the ice burg for the sake of the news programmes or what? It still very much feels like they *want* social media to be this rancid under the surface of all their marketing efforts, they literally give 0 real fucks

Fucking Facebook and their moderation regarding white supremist groups 

The worst thing about this for me as all the people that lap up their brand image PR around this issue with how they're removing X Y and Z more content while simultaneously making it this difficult to have any direct action still or insight into how big this problem is (esp if this is how difficult it is to kick them up the arse using their own tools)
