Trying to get back into magic shit, but I have a terrible attention span. My partners took me for ice cream last night and we watched my favorite movie and cuddled, it was a good night.

Tbh I still cry every time Chihiro cries. That poor girl needs a hug.

I usually try to work on an intuitive basis. What little survives of galdr tends to be fairly precise, but still meant to be done from memory by illiterate peasants, so I try not to get too worked up if a stave looks a little wonky as long as the runes say the right things when I use them. I feel my way around magic instinctually more than intellectually, and I've been thinking a fair bit on merging some of my old animistic practices with what I've learned now since chaos magic is starting to seem like a useful tool to at least get me working again.

sand wrote

that context is reassuring. thanks!

chaos magic definitely has me more active as well, though i do want to build momentum enough to dive deeper into relevant (to me) traditions. i'm pretty new to all this

i'd be excited to hear more about your progress and synthesis if you feel like sharing down the road!

Not super sure about it myself, but it's not like traditional witches haven't used servitors before. The icelandic museum of witchcraft has an exhibit on a 1700s(?) practice of using a particularly ugly one to steal dairy from the neighbors. I think I'd prefer to stick to working with Vaettir, but I'll let you know how it goes if I try it.

Been thinking a bunch about prefiguration since Dumai's post. Trying to figure it out.

You devote time to thinking about specific topics? Or it's just jumbled in with other random thoughts?

There are things that it's important for me to figure out until I feel like I have a grip on it, so those things go on my mind. Since even before that anarchy bang episode where we asked aragorn! to talk about prefiguration, I've been wondering how to relate to it and how to fit it in broadly with anarchy.

I have loads of unresolved things that I've got in the back of my mind, and they come to the fore whenever someone else is engaging it.

The main thing I think about is the broadest topic of consolidating decolonial and anti-civ positions.

I hope you figure that out, but it's getting harder as the global south is getting more and more industrialized.

I donated blood for the first time this week. Usually my iron levels are too low but not this time. I've been feeling relatively calm since then and I can't tell if they are related. I'm thinking I may need more bloodletting in my future if they are.

i did it for the first time recently too. apparently they need my blood type because they called me two days ago asking if i could do it again. definitely plan on it in the future. did you get good snacks?

bloodrose wrote

lol no. all the snacks had gluten in them but I enjoyed some orange juice guilt-free (I tend not to drink calories - i prefer to eat them). :)

Hopelessness and existential dread is back. I need to realize once again that I'm not entirely powerless in this world. Time to recharge the batteries again. Maybe I will grab some friends and spend a day kayaking down the Santa fe River or maybe the itchatucknee and swim with the manatees if they're still out there this time of year.

Remember to take care of yourselves. Life can be stressful and we have to take time for ourselves to remember why we spend so much time on the things that we do.

Cheers ya'll!

Don't stress manatees please, they're chill but not interested in unwanted company.

Cheeks wrote

I know... I let them come to me. I would never do anything to make them uncomfortable. I like them much more than most people.

bloodrose wrote

<3 I'm sorry, I get that dread sometimes, too. I hope you feel better soon.

Game of Thrones comes back in a couple days and the Trek DIscovery finale in a week. I love television. Too bad there are all the tedious work days to get through inbetween episodes.

Oh and my duck just made a bunch of new ducks without me noticing she was sitting on eggs. They're in my closet at home with a 40w bulb now.

And the gov announced it rained more than it has for more than 100 years this winter.

Just can't stop thinking about wanting to be dead, all the time. I feel very alone and awful right now, I just want it all to end.

Tequila_Wolf wrote

Only saw this now, looking through your profile for some music to listen to.

That sucks. I hope you find some good things to claw your way out of there.

I find that things are most bearable when I'm fighting back. Does that work for you also?

Like /u/transtifa said it was pretty much just classism

Chinabot is a bot operated by the Chinese gov that spams raddle with "Our great western civilization is doomed, they're going to take away our freedoms!!!" propaganda that reads like it was written by the_donald users.
