It's December so weeks of dark days where the sun is behind the mountain and it rains all day. I came home from work to find my power's out and am sitting in the dark waiting for my phone to die. Hopefully there will be enough sun tomorrow to charge the batteries but RIP all the frozen grapes and bananas in my freezer.

It's a lovely summer where I am this week, but all around are people dealing with overwhelming drought, unprecedented tornadoes, or floods.

What a week. Hope everybody's doing good.

Gonna go check out an intentional community a while away this weekend, see how they do things and try to learn something.

It's raddle's 3 year anniversary on Sunday. I'm going to try to make a good meme to mark the occasion.

If I don't have power on sunday, which is looking likely, here's my idea: raddle's front page in 2030, with headlines about president Musk letting another group travel to Mars Colony, Australia being evacuated to NZ after the last tree burns and other fun things. Think of some good headlines for me.

President Kardashian of the Holy American Empire declares 'war or something' after President Musk says 'she's no longer that pretty' during an interview.

Your raddle cakeday? I lost track of mine because it just says general stuff like "3 years ago" instead of the date.

you can mouse over that and it gives you a timestamp. Yours is June 20, 2017

I'm just so goddamed ready for some serious action.

I desire it, but am hardly ready for it in real terms.

Pulling together an night collective isn't easy around here since there are so few people on board for anarchy anyway. I've got one or two people who would consider it. Outside of that, I have no real training or fitness, so it's a problem. Really reduces the range of possible moves you can make.

So really it's just community-building for me, enjoying that while I wait for a couple other people to get on board.

I too have more prep to do, and have even less community support than you do, I just feel like I'm so swamped with surviving that I'm not even making progress to being ready, and it feels like a waste, it's so frustrating and soul-crushing....

It wears me down too. Mostly I'm excited about a new project me and a collective I'm in are trying to get off the ground. I'll probably tell all the raddle people about it early next year.

Here's hoping you find some way to get smashy.

El_Sabate wrote

Amen. So let it be, comrade

Can't wait to hear about your new project.

annoying that the only real way to have an alternate address is to buy a P.O. box. some places won’t accept “general delivery” as an address.

also seems fucked up ripped jeans are seen as “fashionable” but my ripped shoes aren’t

A ton of sellers won't even ship to a PO Box. I have to write it in my own language so they don't know.

black_fox wrote

interesting and annoying. i thought of doing a box with UPS (they'll always accept packages) but it's more expensive. either way i'm more just looking for an address to give out, don't need to actually get mail there.

celebratedrecluse wrote

theoretically, can't you just make up an address?

black_fox wrote

this place needs a piece of mail in my name to verify address. i could do "general delivery" at a post office but they don't accept that.

I think ripped shoes are fucking rad! I own a pair and I rock em pretty regularly. Fuck what everyone else thinks, you just do your own thing yo. That's the key to fashion imo, just rocking whatever you got

I got an interview for a promotion, one of the questions was how good do I handle bullying and what is my limit. Like seriously, a simple if it's in good fun as long as it's not anything racist or sexist was not enough, he wanted an example like if I would give him a charte blank threshold.

I was uncharacteristically productive this week, really out of the blue. I'm currently basically not behind at school at all which is very unusual. I don't expect it to last.

I also started learning Scottish on duolingo. It's definitely a lot more limited than the more popular courses but I'm having fun with it
