my lewd alt seems to be my main for now at least
if you would like to interact with me more and you are hornt/don't mind seeing horntness, i've been more active as @biofilm lately. i welcome follow requests <3
wanting to find things to toot about that aren't preoccupied with anxiety and depression, i'm really in my own head lately. i know there's a whole world out there but i'm having a hard time seeing it. *i* know i've been quiet because of this. and i know that things have to change in meatspace before i can be here the way i want to be.

The first public draft of the Euphony Protocol (temporary name) has been released.
The Euphony Protocol is a chat protocol designed for easy implementation and federation, heavily inspired by Discord. It is still somewhat work-in-progress, but it should be fully polished in a couple of months.
I've been working on this for the past 2 months, and it's finally somewhat finished. Keep in mind I have no prior protocol-writing experience.
This is just the beggining.
This decade had:
Occupy Wall Street
The first serious discussion of income inequality, socialism, and unions *in my entire lifetime*
Nationwide gay marriage
The beginnings of Informed Consent for medical gender transition, and trans rights as a respected issue
Widespread acceptance of gun control and climate change as actual policy needs
# metoo -- it's hard to overstate how big a deal this is, in the context of the last few decades
food, the metaphorical room 2/
i guess i'm already working through feelings via some parallel/symbolic act.
cooking. clearing a work area in the kitchen, then making food and cleaning as i go. it lets me relax mentally, i often get some clarity from it. and i have some Things to work through so it's good that i need food on the regular, actually.
I don't really know how to describe this but I'd love to hear if anyone else has similar experiences. I was trying on names like i did early in my transition, and in a similar way i found one that is Right, that is My Name,, but it's different from the way Lilly is my name. Oryn feels like what my name should be if i were someone else. Or maybe, what my name is and I'm the wrong person? I'm not sure how to process/interpret that.
i grew up in a little town and now i live in a small big city! country transfem making do with the asphalt and mild weather.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
