Oh also, realized retroactively that it’s a crime that I haven’t been referring to this whole arduous paint-testing process as “the gold mines” so please pretend I’ve been that funny this whole time

Was digging through our collection of patterns to see if there were any I could use for Hunter’s shirt (the blue one, not his tunic) and pants, since they’re both pretty simple and I figured there was something I could probably rip off easy and the answer is yes, there’s a pattern I picked up a while ago with the intention of making myself some everyday clothes that should work without much modification at all, but the thing is, uh
......it’s very clearly Simplicity’s knock-off Jyn Erso one, and the fact that I am now drawing at least a little inspiration from both the primary protagonist and antagonist from the same goddamn movie for this costume does feel like it portrays Hunter’s specific brand of moral turmoil..... well.

My therapist is making changes to their practice that mean I may or may not be able to keep seeing them, and while the possibility of me being able to continue still (slimly) exists, if I have to go and try to find a new one in the next month or so I may just have to go back to being emotionally face-first in the mud.

I really like the Science Is For Everyone sticker on your laptop btw. Like as someone who couldn't do Science as a major for...Various Reasons but still likes to read about it it...it made me smile >.>
I actually got that sticker at Pride of all places, so it's got a few layers to it! (Although the sentiment you're responding to is definitely one of them.) The science museum I used to work for was handing them out at a booth there, and I was delighted about it on all levels. They were also giving out trading cards with different queer scientists on them. It was fantastic.
And yeah! Science is for everyone! Our society benefits so much when even people who don't work in or study the sciences get excited about them and educate themselves on science topics -- conservation, medicine, sustainability, citizen science projects, even just the "fun" stuff, like getting excited about astronomy or paleontology and their associated excitement over how cool (and fragile) our particular position in time and space is. Plus, it's fun!
There's a reason my tumblr bio has said "general enthusiast about the weirdness of the universe and how we choose to explore it" for years and years now. That "we" is very much intended to extend to everyone: the storytellers, the armchair astronomers and stargazers, the foragers and iNaturalist contributors, the activists, the wonderers, the doers, the space-flight dreamers, the museum volunteers, the litter picker-uppers and buy-nothing organizers, the garlic mustard crusaders, the educators and interpreters, the filkers, the sci-fi writers, the Wikipedia bingers, the documentary-lovers.... everyone who finds little ways to participate in ours ways of and excitement over knowing. That's the core of science, and one of my very favorite things about it!

The podstakannik (Russian: подстака́нник, literally “thing under the glass”), or tea glass holder, is a holder with a handle, most commonly made of metal that holds a drinking glass (stakan). Their primary purpose is to be able to hold a very hot glass of tea, which is usually consumed right after it is brewed. Podstakanniks appeared in Russian tea culture in the late 18th century, when drinking tea became common in Russia. It is a traditional way of serving and drinking tea in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, and other Slavic states.

The laptop saga really did a number on me mentally, especially since I was bracing myself for not having one until late October at the earliest. I keep being like “Ah yes, this is another temporary stopgap measure, like using Scribe’s or my other friend’s, and I shouldn’t plan on saving much data to it” and not being able to grasp that I just.... own an actual working laptop, that is mine, again

Me: I’m actually going to write several hundred words today!
The reasonable part of my brain: Oh cool! Of your big FTH project you were making progress on the other day that needs to be done by the end of the year?
Me: No, not that:
Reasonable brain: Oh, maybe on your aro longfic you haven’t updated in almost a year? You do still have the whole outline, and someone said something really kind about it here on tumblr the other day.
Me: No, no, I’ve been thinking about that one again, but not yet.
Reasonable brain: Hm. You must be planning on working on your Back to the Future fics then. You know, the ones you got one of your friends to help you with some really awesome research for.
Me: No, I’ve been thinking about those too, especially now that I’ve got a lot of academic resources at my fingertips, but I have other things to tackle.
Reasonable brain: Another Owl House oneshot? You need to not get distracted like that, but it was nice to post something and get some nice comments again, at least.
Me: No.
Reasonable brain: What
Reasonable brain: Are you writing, Nathan
Me: A couple scenes from a potential companion story to a fanfic idea Scribe has -- but that she won’t be working on herself for a while -- and which would be a spoiler I couldn’t share until she’s at least halfway through posting her own story. That she hasn’t written yet. And might not all that soon.
Me: :)
