Pinned toot

I'm Julia. I'm 33, a translator and I get easily annoyed by small, inconsequential things. :fingerguns:

I like , , , and just generally games you can't "win" (Sims, Animal Crossing, etc.)

I have a bunch of mental health issues (depression, social anxiety, agoraphobia) and also physical health issues because why not, right?

I'm also fat, weirdly charming - which you wouldn't expect after the first sentence - and German.

PSA: if you want people to accept follow request, add some information to your bio.

I feel like I have some mutuals that don't really like me but don't want to unfollow because it would be uncomfortable/weird since we're running in the same circles.

Is calling it "mutual aid" the new "beg posting"? Or is it different?

SFFBookClub nominations wanted 

I plan to open the poll for February's #SFFBookClub book tomorrow, so send me any books you'd like added. The current list is:

Scarlet Odyssey by C. T. Rwizi
Ammonite by Nicola Griffith
Every Heart a Doorway, by Seanan McGuire
The Ministry for the Future, by Kim Stanley Robinson
The Dazzle of Day, by Molly Gloss

us politics 

It's done and no one got shot. Yet.

rape, Last Tango in Paris 

I can't believe Last Tango in Paris was even made and shown and that Marlon Brando had a career after raping a 19-year old on camera for entertainment.

"Du hast immer soviel Wetter :D Ich hab immer nur grau. Grau mit Regen oder grau mit trocken."

Ich mach beruflich was mit Sprache, echt jetzt.

Sometimes I remember that there are probably people who like Travis McElroy and it's honestly distressing.

Offering boyfriend's best friend's wife to beat someone up for her because they stole her cheese.

work, poll 

I'm assuming most people work a normal 8h day so: how many of those are actual work as opposed to just doing something non-work related like scrolling Mastodon?

I freelance and I started using Toggl to see how much I do *actual* work a day and it's between 1–7 hours but I'd say it's around 2–3 on average. I can't focus for longer than that in a day. 🤷‍♀️

I had forgotten how difficult it is to stop reading a book you're enjoying. That hasn't happened in years. Literally.

I'm dating this person 😬 

Now he's singing Creed. REMEMBER CREED?
I think he has lost his mind.
