Hey everyone! Time for an #introduction: My name is Leni, I'm 31 and a lifelong Chicago kid. You may also know me from @email@example.com or @firstname.lastname@example.org.
I never know what to say about myself, I'm boring af. I like #reading, #learning (which also leads to trying to #DIY as much as I can), expressing #creativity (usually digitally), #dogs (I have a Boxer named Frankie), the color #pink, #food, #gardening, retro #gaming, and binge watching #Netflix/#Hulu 😬
I'm happy to be here, thanks for having me!
I went to buy that pretty bird feeder yesterday, but realized they were charging more in shipping than the feeder itself and it was more than I could spend. I got this one instead, and I'm excited because apparently it's a style cardinals love. I heard/saw one high up in a tree yesterday, so hopefully they'll visit my yard!
#FridayFeelsRadio is back for WEEK 4!!n
@Shrigglepuss & I went with a folk theme, so while he brings us the British folk I tried to give us folk from La Am, Nigeria & Af Am folk tings. Also a guy from Canada :)
Enjoy!! If you listen, let us know!
for us to have a conversation without ppl butting in every 5 min to try to derail or accuse us of talkin about *you* personally. We're talking abt systemic social behavior.
Again, "that's not what I said tho, is it?" APPLIES.
I'm tired of ppl taking these conversations as personal slights against them, you see yourself in that behavior? Then learn how to undo it. You think we're being divisive? Learn abt intersectionality.
You want POC to be censored? Deal w ur implicit biases
covid, politics, content warnings
listen, I get it. it's affecting everyone in the world.
that's more reason to use content warnings for stressful topics, not less.
get mad. spread important information. do your thing. just warn people and let them choose to read what you have to say when they've got the energy to do so, rather than just dumping it on the timeline.
disaster porn is still porn, and consent is still consent.
I could use some assistance via boosts or donations to my GFM! I'm trying to bounce from my unexpected move back to states-Barça & I can't make prints to sell or work yet on my visa.
Plus I'm trying to create content & other projects to share on the fedi but that requires money as many things do.
I used to be friends with a family who had a towing company for a bit, and the mom did everything. They did AAA calls and AAA required that the customer ride with the operator if the car was being towed. When she'd do night calls she'd always take one of us with but couldn't on those AAA tows. That always bothered me, it's kind of a safety issue for both the driver and customer.
Side note: $50 is the going rate for a lockout service (at least around here) so you can call a tow company directly instead of this clearly shitty middle man.
A bunch of southwest side restaurants are doing a digital Restaurant Week. I can recommend Carnitas Uruapan, Las Islas Marias, and La Michoacana as I've tried those, but legit the rest are probably awesome too.
