Finally making an intro thread. It's actually more of an intro tree/bush since I'm going to have a few disjoint topics following these first few posts.

Hi! I'm a computer science student working towards getting a Bachelor's and Master's degree. I'm about two-fifths done! Getting close to the part where I can focus on actual CS stuff.

I worked as an IT technician for my first college for about a year and a few months ago started work making web applications for the same college.

literal (and gross) college humor 

The strangest part of college was not having to choose between interrupting the class and peeing your pants

NSFW out-of-context 

if your dick is going daka, you should probably see a doctor

highly uninformed TTRPG mechanic idea 

deviate doesn't just mean "I changed my mind". it also means "something happened and I didn't plan for it"

plans

if your character goes into a scenario with a plan, they have buffed initiative so long as they stick to the plan. They know what to do, so they can do it without stopping to think.

But once they deviate from the plan, they lose the buff and then some. They're thrown off-balance (metaphorically)

More complicated plans have lesser buffs. You're not going to be able to act fast if you're going through a 100-long list of "if this then that" in your head

I just spent 8 hours torturing someone with rubber-chicken music and excerpts from textbooks.

What did you do today?

negative PSA 

If you feel the need to preface something with "fair warning", that's a sign that you should really rethink what you're about to say.

Hey there was a big data leak at Twitch. Mostly seems to be payout info, but just to be safe you may want to enable two factor authentication and reset your password.

social issues 

Very rarely get comments here. Not sure if that's a good thing or not. I've become both super sensitive and super lonely.

One of the worst parts of my disability is seeing posts I made a few days ago and feeling like I'm looking at a stranger who stole my name

started looking at long shots. There were no more short shots to take. Last test was Lyme disease. Pretty unlikely that I would have had Lyme disease for 5 years with none of the common symptoms.

next will probably be meningitis. That requires a lumbar puncture ;C

my disability is like having a non-stop flu

coming up on year 6 ☠

current treatment is antidepressants. Been through a lot of them to pretty much no effect. Might need to ask to have treatment taken in a completely different direction.

Doctor's don't really have any ideas for what else could be causing constant fatigue and cognitive impairment

disability, financial issues 

Food, shelter, and utilities are covered by family.

I have a loan with minimum payment of $115-ish

I also have a few subscriptions that I want to keep around for quality of life. I was told that the $50/month was for this kind of thing.

Will take a very long time to save for VR. Currently spending more than I'm getting from family.

Being disabled sometimes means being an adult with an allowance.

Currently $50/month from my mother. Hopefully $600-ish/month from the government in a few months

Police politics 

-BLM finally results in legislation in my jurisdiction, enforcing basic accountability measures

-Police start responding to fewer calls

-my mother says "that's what you get"

social issues, health issues 

Lately, I've been watching a lot of Twitch streams. They've helped a lot with socializing -- I have something to watch if I can't figure out what to say, and no-one will notice if I go silent for an hour.

A couple betrayals and a couple other stressors have really curbed my enthusiasm.

There are times when I am so fatigued and so cognitively impaired that I can't even handle watching YouTube -- the lowest-energy method of entertainment available to me.

I can't even get relief by going to bed. It takes hours to fall asleep. I've tried almost every sleep medication my doctor knows of. Going to pick up the last one to try tomorrow. It's strong enough that it might require an ID to pick up.

I was hoping that saying these things would bring some degree of relief.

They didn't.

The only feelings I have nowadays are the anxiety and sadness that comes with betrayal and the fear of it.
