My second favorite Slack keyboard shortcut is definitely ⇧ + Esc. Which is really only beaten by ⌘ + Q.
Little impromptu trip to Disneyland.
Had such an amazing weekend in Palm Springs. I feel so loved and joyful. What a way to end the year and start a new one. Happy New Year!! 🎊🎆🎈 ❤️
I saw this on Facebook and had to share. In the past year of therapy, I’ve come to realize how horrible and fucked it is for parents to be your first abuser. Both of my parents hit me (although my mother wanted to be less involved in this type of abuse). I got whipped with the belt too many times to count throughout my life.
I used to be in the “I got hit and turned out fine” group of people. No honey, you didn’t turn out fine if you think it’s ok to beat children. Full stop. For many years I just thought it was normal. That parents that actually care about their kids hit them.
But now I know I didn’t deserve that. And neither does anyone else.
The data looks super promising for Omicron. I really enjoyed this video that analyzes data from a few different countries. Happy to see this.
It’s almost become a yearly tradition for me to tackle a creative project of some type over the Christmas break. Not this year. I’ve got no gas left in the tank.
I get so tired of how sex negative society can be, and even how that bleeds into the queer and polyam communities. It’s ok to want sex, and it’s ok for that to be a key way in which you express love.
Today was my last day of work for the year. I’m so excited to have two whole weeks to rest, recharge, and spend time with people I care about.
This past weekend was certainly one for the books. It was a weekend full of kind, supportive, and like-minded people. I could be 100 percent myself and accepted fully nonetheless. I also seemed to unlock the next level of the game called life, since I introduced myself to so many people and made quite a few friends in the process. Things are looking up.
Kelly and I put up our first ever Christmas tree tonight 🎄 I’m so excited 😍😍
I sent the following message to some of my mother’s family and select old friends:
Howdy y’all. Just wanted to let you know from the horse’s mouth that I’ve decided to [no] longer be a Jehovah’s Witness. I encourage you to do some objective research into your beliefs. I was certainly surprised by what I found. Sending love and hugs. If you ever need me, you know how to reach me. May the force be with you ❤️
It feels incredibly freeing to finally send this message. I haven’t had contact with much family in the past two-ish years. When I first debated leaving the cult, it was incredibly scary to think about how my family would react or how they’d treat me.
In case you didn’t know, leaving the Jehovah’s Witness organization means essentially saying goodbye to everyone you’ve ever known. Members are instructed to shun people who leave the religion, even family. It’s quite nuts. My research led me to conclude without hesitation that this religion is false and for some reason that means I don’t get to have a family anymore. The only reason I got to do this on my own timeline is because the pandemic turned out to be a fantastic cover to leave this cult under the radar. Which I guess is something to be grateful for?
But what used to be scary, I’ve now come to accept. I mean, my family has shunned me before, so what does it really matter if they do it again? Like, ultimately, people that actually care about you don’t emotionally blackmail you into being part of their religion 😘
So this feels like closure. I hope to have left things open for any of them to reach out if they ever wake up from their indoctrination. Till then, it feels good for people to know where I stand, and I think it’ll help me start writing the next chapter of my life.
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.
And those are the facts.
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!

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+.
My outfit to pass candy out! Happy Halloween 🎃👻
