I saw this on Insta­gram, and just had to share it. Year after year, so many of my fam­i­ly mem­bers would com­ment on my weight and body. At the time, I didn’t under­stand how dam­ag­ing and cru­el that was. I thought it was my fault for being fat. I believed them when they said, I only bring it up because I’m look­ing out for your health.”

This year, we all have the pow­er to sim­ply shut the fuck up. If some­one gained weight over the pan­dem­ic, mak­ing a com­ment about it is the sure­fire way to alien­ate the won­der­ful fat peo­ple in your life.

Next Sat­ur­day I’ll be stream­ing on Twitch from 10am to noon Pacif­ic. I’ll be work­ing on a few of my side projects. There’ll be weed, cof­fee, and good vibes. Hope you can make it!

I’m start­ing a lit­tle bi-month­ly newslet­ter with what I’m work­ing on, music I’m lis­ten­ing to, and inter­est­ing things I find around the web. I’m send­ing out the first issue this upcom­ing Fri­day. It’s sure to bright­en your day. 😎 You should like… total­ly subscribe 🥺😘

The Book of Boba Fett Official Trailer

Opened YouTube this morn­ing as I usu­al­ly do to eat my PB&J and sip on my cof­fee. And what do I find there on the home­page? This fuck­ing bad ass trail­er for The Book of Boba Fett.

Boba Fett is one of those char­ac­ters that was incred­i­bly cool in the orig­i­nal tril­o­gy, but we don’t know much about him. Fun­ni­ly enough, we know more about his Dad Jan­go, than we do about Boba. One thing we seemed to learn from sea­son two of The Man­dalo­ri­an is that Boba seems to have his own code of ethics, which we get a glimpse of in this trail­er too.

I’m real­ly excit­ed to see what they do with the series. What a time to be alive! The new series pre­mieres on Decem­ber 29th on Disney+.

Some­thing I’ve strug­gled with a lot since leav­ing the cult, is find­ing new friends. I didn’t know that my friends and com­mu­ni­ty were con­di­tion­al, but such is life. No one seems to talk about how dif­fi­cult it can be to find friends as an adult. Espe­cial­ly as a cult sur­vivor where my friends and com­mu­ni­ty were forced upon me.

With that in mind, I decid­ed to cre­ate a dis­cord serv­er to help me build my own com­mu­ni­ty of sex-pos­i­tive and inclu­sive peo­ple. I’m not sure what this com­mu­ni­ty will turn out to be. But if there’s one thing I know about myself, it’s my abil­i­ty to bring peo­ple togeth­er. If you’re a geek, ston­er, or queer like me, let’s be friends!

Introducing Friendly Alien

I am so beyond excit­ed to share the first few designs for Friend­ly Alien! Friend­ly Alien is my new lit­tle side-project to make soft, com­fy, and size-inclu­sive cloth­ing (and maybe some oth­er knick knacks) for geeks, ston­ers, and queers. I deeply believe that fat peo­ple deserve great things, and so it’s been my pri­or­i­ty to find soft and com­fy shirts that go up to 5XL.

I’ll be launch­ing a pre-order soon, so get on the newslet­ter to find out about it first! Oh, and uh… you’ll get 15% off when we launch if you do. No shenani­gans. I respect your pri­va­cy, and will only send emails when there’s some­thing cool to share.

Be a friend, share with a friend!

I SAID YES!!! 😍😍❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️💖💖💖💍💍💍💍💍 Some­one asked me if Jeho­vah’s Wit­ness­es are a cult!!!!!!

Lightyear Teaser Trailer

I knew noth­ing about this movie except for what I saw in this trail­er, but it’s enough. It gave me chills at the end. Can’t wait to see it.

I’ll have more to say soon, but I’m start­ing my own lit­tle indie shop called Friend­ly Alien. I want­ed to make soft, com­fy, and size-inclu­sive cloth­ing and oth­er acces­sories for my favorite peo­ple: geeks, ston­ers, and queers. And would you look at that? I hap­pen to be all three 😉

I have no idea why, but I nev­er bought an Apple Pen­cil think­ing I would­n’t use it much. I final­ly did and doo­dled all of last night. Suf­fice to say, I should’ve bought this thing soon­er. Here’s my doo­dle from last night.

I’d been wait­ing for this Fall Apple Event to decide on what lap­top to get next. After see­ing every­thing they came out with, I went ahead and ordered an M1 Mac­Book Air.

I heard a quote yes­ter­day that kind of blew my mind and still has me pon­der­ing it’s sig­nif­i­cance in my own life.

The prop­er func­tion of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in try­ing to pro­long them. I shall use my time.

I haven’t been feel­ing super con­fi­dent recent­ly. But then I have moments where I see and know how beau­ti­ful and lov­able I am, just for being me. Hap­py Sunday.

I’m cur­rent­ly sip­ping my cof­fee next to the open win­dow in the liv­ing room. It’s a crisp morn­ing and it’s been rain­ing for hours. Jazz is play­ing in the back­ground as if to score this moment to perfection.

I’ve been feel­ing sad recent­ly. But right now I’m hap­py. And every­thing is going to be ok.
