@captainbland Maybe. It's probably more to do with my lazy unwillingness to start the whole essay process until as late as humanly possible, though

There's something about writing essay plans that seriously irks me

Posts that get 20, 30, hell even 50 faves are cheap. I live for the toot that gets exactly one, but the person actually means it - it really is their favorite toot

Hot take: post-apocalyptic fiction is so popular because people desperately want to live lives that aren't yoked by capitalism, but are unable to even conceive of such a thing happening without the world ending first

@redoak Interesting. I've found notion.so a useful tool for personal wiki-style notes and lists, but I can imagine a static site generator performing a very similar function without locking you in to (yet another) service. I can see how it would require a fair amount of thought at the outset to figure out a streamlined workflow, though...

@redoak Ooh, what methods have you been looking at? I was a big fan of notational velocity before I moved to standard notes. NV has the advantage of extreme speed of access/modification, but I think (in my use-case) it was worth sacrificing for SN's richer features and robust (simple) cross-platform support

it's so fucking amazing to me that art is a thing humans do. like we're under absolutely constant pressure to perform, to fulfil ten million different obligations, and yet there are still so many people that just say fuck that i'll make something useless. it doesnt matter how much a piece of art sucks, they all have the potential to be fascinating because they open up the doors to gratuitous emotions and meaning-making, and that is a spellbinding activity all by itself.

Brutal 2:40AM start to catch a flight to for New Year's Eve ✈️😴

I couldn't help myself~ Cutest mascot. Toot Toot!

@priryo Sounds perfect! The best solution I could think up for the problem of people arriving to claim a seat and immediately leaving thereafter was to implement a policy that you couldn't hold a desk without leaving a coat on the chair (and rejecting anybody trying to enter the library with two coats). You're welcome to go back home for your nap but the walk would be COLD

@iona @priryo At least this library madness only manifests for the final couple weeks of each semester. Silver linings haha

It's absolutely insane that the uni library gets completely filled by 9:30am - there's even a culture of waking up early to come and claim a desk by leaving a single textbook and then going home to sleep some more.. Brutal to arrive at the end of the morning rush and see a stream of people LEAVING the library as you go in to search for the single remaining empty desk

social.coop is a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
