And if culture is ephemeral and transitory, then what about identity, eh? There's never been a single "you", constant in time. There is you now this very second, and the degrading biosignals of memory filtered through our current understandings. You do not remember yourself accurately and nothing can be done about that past you anyway. So who are you now? That's all the truly matters.

But it is important to remember that the past is how outside observers build their model of you. Theory of the mind and what not. If you were a bigoted asshole in the past and miraculously no longer are, your word alone will not change the predictive algorithms we all run. You will need to demonstrate the new-you and over time the predictive models will adjust. But it does take time and patience is required. (This is true of most large changes, not just bigotry, like that time you denounced Nickleback but we all knew you still had the best-of in the car's cd player)

lewd speed running joke

sad, relationships and gift giving 

Also, I accidentally melted a bit of my O key. The match broke off as it turned on 😑

sad, relationships and gift giving 

I was writing a note with a small gift to somebody very dear to me.

A brief moment of sadness washed over me as I thought of the words I wanted to write.

Alas, they wouldn't be welcome.

Talent is a myth.

Don't let anyone tell you that you're not "gifted" enough to do art. All it takes is patience, focus and discipline, and those can be trained.

Look for the right teachers and learning material, surround yourself with artists better than yourself, and generally work a shit ton - you can make it.

A powerful realization I had the other day is that if people didn’t want to hang out with me they just. Wouldn’t.

mh, relationships 

I always expect that the people closest to me are going to be surprised and bothered by my mental health when they literally know me and are in my life despite that already. But also Im just worried eventually itll be too mcuh.

I'm a good boy and made the calls I needed to make earlier today!

Yay on not procastinating!

I had this realization a while ago where I was like "when I dont do something even when I have a really good reason everyone can only see that Im not doing it. SO maybe sometimes when Im annoyed at people for not doing stuff (or FOR doign stuff for that matter) they have a really good reason too" and its made me way less angry as a person

If you're not in favour of universal and unconditional:

🍍 Housing
🍍 Drinkable water
🍍 Food
🍍 Medical care
🍍 Income

If it's your considered belief that some people literally deserve to die of starvation or exposure or something because they aren't good enough at *making money*:

You're a monster, please un-follow me

I'm really itching to write something long form <_<

Just... not today. Sleep first.

r/traa post, may contain sensitive content 

All of my friends here at TRAAA are great! Shame about my parents SMH

Today was a day for canceling plans:

* a job opportunity presented itself to my dinner partner, so no dinner
* coffee friend is sick, so no coffee
* rainy weather means no going out shopping.

A mix of emotions, for sure, but I think I'm going to enjoy the time off more considering work has been stressful this week. Aaaand I get to have time to write more things to show to my coffee friend! 😊

When you censor things with asterisks, you foil people's filter uses. If I filter, oh say, "Pelosi" for example, and someone posts "P*loisi" for some unknown reason, I'll see it despite my filter. So don't do it plz.

Sim racing, personal achievement 

Finally managed to keep it together for an entire race and not destroy de car (or wreck another). Granted, I do know Spa extremely well, but still, some sort of consistency!

Rant, tech support, negative 

I really hate it when tech support tells you they are going to arrive at a certain time but they don't. I'm they can't arrive 15mins after scheduled time. I'm saying please arrive within an hour. I'm saying the tech support line should also pick up quickly when called to ask about it.

Punctuality people. Or at least send a message saying you'll be late.

I hope that, whoever you are that takes the time to read this, you know deep within your heart that you deserve to be here.

Take a moment and remind yourself that you exist. That you should exist. That you belong in the world, with all its disappointments and its delights. That you deserve happiness. That you deserve to love yourself simply for the magic of being alive.

I know it's hard work every day to be good to yourself and others. I see how hard it is. I believe in you, and others do too.

This society learns us the fact that failing is *bad* and a shame.
Let me tell you: it is *not*.

Be proud of failing.
You tried something, and even if you did not succeed at your task, you learned something: this way does not work, for this reason.

That's like… The 101 of learning.

Making people ashamed of failing is a really fucked up thing to do.

Fast food 

Tried the cheeseburger bacon burger from McDonald's. It was alright but I think I prefer the non bacon one better.
