figuring this out, gush, thanks 

Sometimes I wonder if I'm just running the race here looking for numbers trying to get people to like some false image of myself.
I've been trying to figure out why those endorphins hit so hard when I get a boost or a fav. Specifically i keep asking myself "is it worth hanging around if those mean more to me than trying to forge real friendships and throw my heart into this community?" If it were true, than no - 1/3

ok well I finally gave in and made a gofundme to get me top surgery bc I am feeling relentlessly horrible with dysphoria

boosts very much appreciated!!!

(to everyone who has put money in my ko-fi: I've set it aside to put towards the costs, I'm not just pocketing it for treats! thank you so much)

there's a weird kind of feeling embodied in "looking at discord and getting disappointed because you don't see any 'new message' pips, and then realizing that that's because you've silenced every text channel that gets regular attention"

vtube and Dad 

and I remember thinking at the time, and now even more so, how much in common Vtube and Dad have

like... Dad is essentially a Vtuber in many senses

he presents himself through a completely fabricated persona, but still interacts with his audience in a genuine way, the biggest difference is he doesn't stream I guess, but I can't help but recognize some distant kinship there, and maybe he recognizes it too

and I think that's neat

vtube and Dad 

the thing I found weird about this is how he wouldn't, like, self-promote, or even really do anything particularly obtrusive, but instead he would be very genuine, like he comes off as just another youtube user, not somebody who's channel is well-known, at least to my eyes

but the vtube bubble has popped at this point to a certain degree, so it stands to reason that Dad wouldn't show up in too many more chats

but he still does, he's just everywhere, even in the less popular places

so it was a thing a while ago, like in November/December, for Dad (the youtube channel) to just show up in various streamers' chats, which like it makes sense for his character because he's trying to "be the biggest youtuber ever" but then he started showing up in vtuber chats too, especially hololiveEN chats since they just surging in popularity during that time

You ever think about brainstorm and green needle?

the five word spell that can clear any room: "we should start a podcast"

obviously the solution is to have both a "toot" button and a "post" button, and let the user choose which one to click

Oh, today I met an actual angel in the form of a 9 week old puppy who was so tiny that she squeaked instead of barking and was named Dolly after Dolly Parton

Covid 

So I'm sitting in the waiting area after getting my first round of moderna. I can't tell if its anxeity, but im very uncomfortable. I've heard muscle pain is a thing that happens with this.

I've never been to the tribal gym before though. This is really a really cool place actually. I wondered if it would be like a sweaty high-school gym, but its really nice actually.

Mmm, it smells like only pollen out here.

vtube 

there's a vtuber who's been streaming for almost 3 straight weeks, only stopping to rest, and she intends to keep doing this until she hits 10k subs

i think she started out at maybe seven or eight hundred, she sailed up over 9k this week, which is just so cool, i just love that this community can show up for the small timers now and then
