#introductions Hello! My name is Jacob, or Altruest, whatever you wanna call me. I've been on mastodon for a little over a year now, but I thought it was about time to move to another instance from m.s. I usually just dump whatever thoughts I feel should be shared on here, but my interests include #music, #Scifi, #Fantasy, and #science! I also try to make your internet experience as positive as I can, so if you need a breather from the internet grind, I'm your guy!
@Altruest You want sci-fi and fantasy? Toto will provide!
Their 1979 concept album Hydra has two certified yacht tracks, but I'm choosing to serve you "St. George And The Dragon", which pulls off the near-impossible feat of being a yacht rock song you can headbang to. And it's got cowbell!
While Toto's yacht rock credentials are unimpeachable, this early track lands at a low 53.25 on the Yachtski scale.

I have a single, stuffy nostril and no other symptoms, so I'm not sure if I'm getting sick or if Osmosis Jones is just having a bad day.

one of the hardest things to learn as a depressed former Gifted Kid™ is that half-assed is better than nothing. take the 50%, 40%, even 20% job. scrubbing your face is better than not taking a shower at all. picking up your clothes is better than never cleaning. nibbIing on some bread is better than starving.
DO THINGS HALFWAY. NOW YOU'RE 100% BETTER OFF THAN YOU

One of my college professors used to say "anything worth doing is worth doing poorly." I didn't understand that for years because I didn't do anything poorly. I couldn't do anything poorly. I had to Do Everything Perfectly.
But brushing your teeth for 30 seconds is better than not brushing them at all when that 2 minutes seems exhausting. Doing ten minutes of yoga is better than 10 minutes of sitting when 30 minutes of cardio sounds impossible. Changing my clothes is good when a whole shower is impossible. Standing on the porch for a few minutes is worth it after being in the house for three straight days because l don't have the energy to go anywhere.
Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly... because doing it poorly is better than not doing it.
enby language question, menstruation Show more
I would like to talk about some of my experiences using what's called birth control but basically is my hormone therapy. But it's not therapy (I have never discussed gender with my GP), it's def not HRT but I don't want to use the term birth control either. I don't take it to control the birthing, but to control my body cause it stops me from menstruating which is a dysphoric thing for me personally. What would be a better word or phrase to use instead of birth control?
Boost are ok. Nasty people will be blocked faster then lightning can strike.
Thank you for your help thinking along with me. <3
