Stress & food 

Mashed potatoes and pasta. Itโ€™s all I want right now in my current โ€œlowโ€ state. Watch out: stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, ptsd - the carbs are coming to squash you! (I now have ๐Ÿ’Š for the BP but most likely therapy & ๐Ÿ™ for the rest ๐Ÿคช)

My only #NewYearResolution will be 'use your stickers', as it has been every year for a long time.

It's not just sticker-specific, but a reminder that leaving the sticker on the sheet does nothing. Choosing something to stick it on means it will bring you joy. Might that joy be impermanent? Yes, but everything has the potential to be impermanent, and what joy is there in leaving the sticker on the sheet?

Burn that nice candle you bought for the smell. Use that bath bomb. Enjoy that snack treat. #UseYourStickers.

All jokes aside, remember what Christmas is really about, people.

Rich people being terrorized by spectres until they agree to pay their employees a living wage.


I love getting sick whenever I leave my home ๐Ÿ˜ซ my brain is now registering people outside of my household as literal germs. Iโ€™m more anxious to leave for even mundane errands.

I signed up for ski โ›ท๏ธ lessons in the new year! Iโ€™m so excited to try something new and invest in my personal well-being (something that has been sidelined since becoming a parent)
Bonus: Embracing the New England snow โ„๏ธ with optimism instead of misery

Playing this v fun game with my family right now: is it Covid, flu or rsv?

Iโ€™m currently listening to Disney soundtracks with my sons and loving being still & restful.

Iโ€™ve been working remotely since 2016 and I *still* forget how valuable and necessary taking actual time off is to rest. Rest is critical and I donโ€™t need earn it to enjoy it.

Photographed the Triangulum Galaxy last night from the deck. As always, very light-polluted conditions. #stellina #astrophotography

I have stopped
the microservices
that were in
the infrastructure

and which
you were probably
for authentication

Forgive me
they were 1000+
so many
and so wasteful

Iโ€™ve been putting up Christmas ๐ŸŽ„ decorations since Nov 1 and Iโ€™m still not done โ€ฆ halp

Also feels new and exciting as a communication/micro-blog for me given that I have been in a little hiatus from contributing content for a couple years now.
Things on the bird site had felt so performative and a quest on proving my knowledge and therefore my worth to the OSS community. Becoming a parent has really changed my perspective and priorities (and honestly my ๐Ÿง )โ€ฆ All this is to say that I have no idea what Iโ€™ll be tooting about but thanks for reading this far.
