I Hate Technology

Recently I had to update my email on all my accounts, keys, and more, and this quite simple to do, you simply open up a terminal, run the following commands and you’re able to add a new email/uid to the GPG key: gpg --edit-key <key id here> gpg> adduid gpg> uid <uid here> gpg> primary gpg> save But there comes a large amount of pain and frustration when it comes anything related to git if you want to remove a email or uid from a key....

Internet Insensitivity

I think it’s time to talk about the internet and insensitivity. This is something that I’ve personally noticed moderating or taking part in Discord servers, and other online internet communities and platforms. In specific I’m talking about people valuing or idolizing their own beliefs or opinions on something over the comfort or feelings of the community. There’s a time and place for everything, even if what you’re saying is “joking”, if it is negative there is a chance it will offend someone, and don’t get me wrong, everyone has a right to say what they think, and have their own opinions, however this doesn’t mean you have to state it every time it pops in your brain....

The Endless Cycle

One thing that often happens to me is I’ll start a project looking forward to seeing it’s completion, and then later in the project’s lifetime I’ll give up, scrap the project, and start a new one. This happens over and over again, and it’s honestly emotionally exhausting. This is partially due to being in a loop of “this code isn’t good enough”, which in result can cause things like imposter syndrome, lack of motivation, and similar, a great explaination of this is a xkcd comic named Good Code....

The Downward Dysphoric Spiral

I came out as trans around June of last year I believe, near my birthday. It’s certainly experience, questioning your gender, and while I do certainly think of myself as female, I can imagine myself wearing dresses, wearing feminine undergarments and doing other things such as wearing makeup occassionally (which isn’t necessarily feminine!) there is those times where I just start to feel a sense of unease, a sense of uncertainty, a sense of worry and dread that either I’m lying to myself, or that I will never look like what I want to....
