Here for a stream of neat things and cool people. Comp Sci & Electrical Engineering student with a vague focus on embedded systems. Voracious reader, briefly a copy-editor. English & so-so Spanish. An Adult Human. Prioritizing anonymity over pronoun preference, sorry.
This has turned into mostly a stream of random commentary and music posts, somehow. Feel free to interact.
follow/follower/unfollow policy v.1
If I follow you, I saw a neat thing or we had a cool interaction that may or may not have been on here. If my following you or interacting with your posts is unwanted, please let me know.
I don't really care who follows me. If you notice me interacting with someone sketchy, please let me know! I may be judging them off of a single innocuous toot.
If I unfollow you unexpectedly, it may be for content or frequency. I curate my feed carefully.
mute/block/report policy v.1
If I mute or block you, we've had a bad interaction. If not, it's likely due to frequency of posting and unwanted content.
I generally don't believe in muting/blocking (for myself! use as needed), but I don't need my timeline clogged with 100 identical memes or NSFW posts at a time.
I report unmarked NSFW and NSFW avatars. I don't care what you do (and may be enjoying it!) but I need a screen I can look at in a lecture hall. Also, don't be a nazi.

Half the reviews I saw marked the screw on adapter jack on the mdr-v6's as one of the worst things when just using them casually (the other half was still lauding Sony's genius)
I'm just happy to have a decent and relatively cheap set of cans I can plug into my phone without taking off my nice case. I realize jack access is almost as low a priority as including the damn thing, but it was getting ridiculous.
The cheap wildflower mix we threw down in the torn up part of the backyard has been entirely dominated by bushy nasturtiums that are starting to crawl out of the "flowerbed".
Neither of us recognized them until we tripped over a display at the fair.
Turns out we've accidentally grown a very large patch of very tasty greens? Very pretty to boot.
Nerve & shoulder issue(?)
Just spent 3 hours tossing and turning trying to align my arm so my hand would wake back up.
Then I woke up enough to remember spending an hour and a half drunkenly yeeting a tennis ball for an inexhaustible lab mix yesterday.
Poor Tiny Dog was limping by the time we both decided it was too hot for fetch, so of course I've got fucked shoulder finger tingles the next day.
Not looking forward to actually getting out of bed and trying to do stuff with the day.
And like. Just in general.
I just found out about Libby, the overdrive app, in June. I've already racked up a couple dozen books.
I've never walked out of a library in a worse place or a worse mood than when I walked in. One of the libraries a county over has a full weekly print budget alongside general services for anyone who gets a card, and they're very liberal on what counts as a resident.
The local system doesn't have that budget, but they still offer so many services. Their website has a full section of free certifications with training materials, and free media beyond books, and lunch programs, and workshops.
And there was a librarian walking an older lady through filling and printing some forms on a computer, and she was doing that little "oh, isn't that clever" noise of someone who's finally getting the chance to catch up on technology.
And there was a guy who clearly felt completely out of place who'd come in from a bus stop and looked a bit down on his luck, just completely surprised by being allowed to charge his phone in a public space.
This little girl walked in with her mom and immediately ran off to look for something to check out. She did that little spin with the half-step false starts at all the different sections.
Just completely overwhelmed and excited and it was just one of those moments that brings back all the memories of being a kid at the end of summer.
This is my web drip. It keeps me happily sedated.
