new alt: @happyfork
for cataloging my attempts to make a ghost dating sim/hopefully learn how to use unity (probably in reverse order).
Hi, I'm Casey or Happyfork! I'll pretty much answer to any variation of those, or whatever else you decide to call me. I am dating @floretwitch .
I like gardening, cooking, video game development, video game playing, tabletop rpgs, ghosts, and probably some other stuff I can't think of right now! My politics are vaguely-left haven't-read-much-theory, although I tend to get along best with anarcho-communists.
This site (or at least this instance) doesn't seem to identify much with fandom, but i might as well throw some out there: Mcelroy products, Homestuck, Nintendo generally, uhhh... whatever I happen to be into at the moment.
Replys, random @s, DMs, whatever are all welcome! I want to make friends but idk how.
Then after that, maybe update an old app I made to convert D&D currency back and forth between denominations. Maybe flesh it out into a full inventory manager thing.
Then if I get real bold, start trying to make a game. But i might be overestimating the amount of free time I have at work now.
uspol, sexual assault
literally if I wanted a racist billionaire from new york with multiple sexual assault allegations against him and an interest in ending term limits, I would at least vote for the guy who is transparently incompetent about it. Rather than someone who uh... actually succeeded in materially worsening conditions for black people and getting a third term out of it.
rambling, potentially privileged/oblivious analysis of fedi dynamics
Dude fedi has such an old internet charm. hundreds of relatively small communities chatting and interacting in a larger, still relatively small community. Sure the petty interpersonal drama is replaced with like. political discourse and fascism/colonialism apologia. But the unique mood of everyday people, not corporations, learning and sometimes failing and working out what it means to manage and build a community is special and I'm glad I get to see it in my lifetime.
(I am just barely too young to have been around when every website had a forum and discord servers are still a bit too isolated for this kind of feeling).
I just don't understand voters who say beating trump is more important than policy/issues. Like, what do you want the president to do? Or why do you want a president if you don't want them to do anything?
Similarly, I don't understand voting for someone based on their personal charisma. Why do you want a smart or attractive or smooth talking evil person in the white house? What good does that do you?
My best guesses for these: Trump is uniquely bad bc he was voted in on the back of his racist rhetoric, and the rhetoric (not the policies) are doing the most harm. I don't think that's true necessarily, but I can see someone thinking it. But even then, vote for the candidate with good rhetoric AND good policies. As for the charisma thing, my guess is that people think character has consistency. That people act the same way they portray themselves. That or they just don't wanna think.
The compromise buttigieg is asking us to make is go more right so we can work with the right, but inherent to this is a decision to abandon and thus lose support of the left. Bernie says lets try to bring in more of the left because he has the Washington experiencing to know that the republicans don't compromise. The right will never work with even the centrist dems like Obama. I think this needs to be pointed out to Buttigieg supporters that don't think history matters in Washington.
alright fine here's the context:
I have the opportunity to pursue a new job.
-I plan on moving in about a year and a half and this new job is in the city I want to live in while my current job isn't.
-New job will pay more, but not like *significantly* more.
-Taking the job will probably move my plans forward by a year or so & I have family and friends in this city.
-I haven't worked at my current job very long (3 months), and I don't want to let my employers flounder w/o an employee or look flaky on my resume.
-Real chance of getting reliant on the income & the job I'm passionate about not paying as much.
Kind of a wash:
-I have to be licensed in new state to work there, but I'm going to be moving there eventually anyway.
-Neither new or current job are what I'm really passionate about.
Hey i can actually have an animated icon on this platform! Neat! Anyway I'm Casey.
