“Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.”

—Kurt Vonnegut, God Bless You Mr. Rosewater

Three years ago I was miserable and trying to cope with a lot of changes in my life. I ended up going to Rocky Mountain National Park and seeing if I could climb the trail to Emerald Lake.

It’s marked in hiking guides as an easy hike, but even an easy mountain hike is challenging as fuck if you are completely out of shape.

But I made it. I did it. Here’s the view I got on that day. You can see Hallett Peak in the background of the photo. I like to think about this when I feel down.

Hello, I am hugely fucking bad with technology! I was MadelineClimbs at lgbt.io and up until an hour ago, MadelineClimbsCeleste at this instance! I tried fucking with my profile, hit delete by mistake, and thought, ok I can fix this by swiping back

I need to start refollowing people all over again, be patient with the least competent tooter on Mastodon

on the plus side, perhaps an hilarious meme can be born from my shame and incompetence

If I’m ever making anyone uncomfortable, please call me out. Recent events have left me feeling pretty disheartened about my own inability to spot someone who was making everyone else feel uncomfortable.

I know blocking and muting is the better option, and that I’m not owed anything. But I don’t want to be that person.

Also, I feel a bit violated myself in sharing personal information action with someone who turned out to be awful, so there’s that.

Probably gonna stay off for a while.

THIS IS A QUILT. Somebody designed this and sewed it up with hundreds or even thousands of pieces of fabric. Don't ever let anyone say textiles can't be art. Amazing. (Not my photo, quilt is by Montse Forcadell Blasco.)

People who go in hard arguing that it's the opposite are usually invested in maintaining access to people beyond what would normally be their comfort zones.

Daily reminder that blocking someone is a personal judgment call on regulating access to yourself, not a legal proceeding.
