Good thoughts from Tumblr (not by me):
"If courage isn’t the absence of fear but doing the right thing regardless of it, maybe confidence isn’t the absence of insecurity but knowing you have real worth despite it"
"By this same token, maybe goodness isn’t the absence of bad thoughts or impulses, but the conscious choice to behave according to your moral ideals in spite of them."

public bathroom musings and observations
the old men who work on this floor are committed to secluding themselves in men's room stalls and making noises that sound like dozens of possible activities, none of which sound like going to the bathroom.
is he trying to start a fire by rubbing sticks into a pile of straw? is he playing a very tiny game of racquetball that requires thumping and grunting? is he having a stroke?
bathroom old man never tells. 🤫
Neural networks harness the power inherent in light to perform recognition on handwritten digit by embedding the framework in glass.
This is astounding.
At dinner tonight, I'm like 90% the guy at the table next to me was trying to join a polycule with the other guys at the table, but it was structured VERY much like a job interview. Like I thought it was a job interview from the postures and cadence but I'd hear snippets of answers that revolved around managing jealousy and sexual exploration and I just don't know what kind of job would find those skills relevant.
We are stories we tell ourselves
to feel real. I give myself a name
and walk like a woman, I speak of
the future as if it happens. I eat
food and decompose and dress in costumes
other people make.
I do not wish to be a tragedy, the shape of my
skin spells out a future
lined with moonless nights
and days of fire. I wish to tell a story
of how to drink the ocean
one night at a time.
pssssst did you know that @nein09 writes a newsletter about gigs she has coming up, which she rarely mentions here because she's so conscious of the danger of overdoing it and getting annoying? https://tinyletter.com/melindaminchmusic/letters/new-chamber-music-extravaganza-this-saturday
