honestly people rightfully talk about how bad American science education is but one thing people don't often talk about is that we don't teach how to read scientific papers. they're a weird form that's not intended to be read linearly or really like any other piece of writing and it's not something I ever felt really comfortable with until multiple years of grad school

I keep seeing a lot of apologies for not being interesting or funny or positive, and I just wanna say:

You are a person, not a brand. You do not need to be consistently anything but yourself. If you need to take a break, that's OK. We're all people, we'll understand.

@norikawa oh thats why the confirmation email didn't send

also: whoops, sorry. (I invited myself to efdn so I could make an account with the name xandra)

Whoever scooped out my brain and replaced it with terrible references to 90s and 00s rock: fuck you.

@yeenbean My brain right now: Don't say this is like that one song by Lit don't say this is like that one song by lit

me: this is like that one song by lit

My brain: goddamn it.

cursed beverage shitpost 

Its been a while since I had a sugary energy drink and I kind of miss it. And that depresses me, cause energy drinks suck.

I hate what I've become. The nightmare's just begun. But I must confess that I feel like a Monster(tm).

positive update re: money stuff, request for help again 

so, we've just updated our patreon goals becaaaause

the insurance we presently have does not have copays 🎉 which means we don't have to pay $40 a month just on meds!!!

the goals are now reshaped a bit around that. we still appreciate any help we can get - this mostly just means now it goes to food first instead of meds, which... is nice!

we did still just pay $80 on new glasses and also we had to buy our cat litter and yeah

glad to have had the support we've had

Aren't you tired of high fantasy?

Don't you ever just want to be a kobold in space?


I made a rules-light TTRPG! A lot of friends helped out, including @noelle, @io, @venatus, @SpaceCadet, and other cool people who unfortunately aren't on here for me to plug!

It's "Pay-What-You-Want," even if what you want to pay is nothing! Check it out!


done, but not filed. Still, I feel a bit better.

@FirstProgenitor My username was masculine, and I had just discovered that I'm girl. It bugged me.

So the actual problem that I think is making me want to jump servers? I miss EFDN.

@xandra I personally like being able to short tag you but I knew your time here would always be but a short dream UwU

not something i would ever do 

@Taweret embarrassed and heartbroken
