I've put together a survey about the Small Internet (#gopher, #gemini, individual webpages, small community sites) and I would love your input. If you are a small internet user, please spend a few minutes and fill in your thoughts. I'm especially interested in the open response questions. This will help inform an upcoming conference talk I'll be giving at https://mch2022.org
Also, please boost this on fedi as much as possible and feel free to re-share on other social networks and in other communities. The more responses the better.
me: I wanna leave this sucky country.
randos: Well not everyone can leave, some of us have to stay and make things better! ~guilt trip, moral superiority~
me: My family has a tradition of running to escape fascists. It also has a tradition of being murdered by fascists, but that's less appealing.

The cool part is that it consumes GoodReads exports so you have all you're reading data.

AHHHHHHH I now have to start on Chapter 10 of 11!
This is the big set piece. The whole actiony plotty part that I didn't even know how it was going to go until a friend came over last weekend and helped me plot it out.
It's basically a The Mandalorian episode and if it doesn't work the whole thing is for nothing!
Had a headache all day. Pain killers did nothing and eventually my eyes started to hurt from looking at the screen, so I left work 2 hours early.
My cycle should be starting soon, so it's probably that. So I put together calendula, red clover, rose and peppermint tea. That actually did seem to help even though none of those are "pain killers," the red clover is like a "process and balance hormones" plant, as is calendula. Rose is more for taste and emotional support.
