I should really do my dishes more often... get small portions of them done each day rather than waiting and ending up having to wash like a billion things at once
had a weird dream last night, I don't remember much of the details but at one point there was a doctor or somebody who said I was carrying an egg (yes, in that sense)
I'm equal parts sad and confused
the goal with that being that with the RHCSA I might be able to get my foot in the door *somewhere* with it proving that I at least know *something* about tech. even if I end up doing some stupid help desk thing it's better than nothing x.x
job search (~) Show more
if nothing else I really need a job so I can finally have a regular schedule to keep myself to
but I still haven't heard anything, not even a damn interview from months of looking. maybe I'm looking in the wrong places? maybe I'm looking for the wrong stuff?
the fact I can't even take a shitty part time gig because it'd mess up my benefits and stuff is really shitty too. I'd be okay with finding some dumb retail job or whatever, but I *need* full time x.x
food Show more
like seriously this cold brew coffee is literally from concentrate, all I did was pour some into a mug and add water
and well crackers and cheese is pretty basic just to begin with, but it always feels more pretentious than that. not to mention it's *goat cheese* brie, I mean really
and yet, the story isn't really gone, is it?
it's still there, everything is always there. even when the plot comes to an end, the story and the world and the characters all continue existing
not in any "real" ongoing sense, of course, but more in the way that they continue influencing you and keep being a part of you. the stories and the characters all carry on in your memories
it's more obvious if you're into fanfics, but they never really stop being there just because you reached the end
finally got off my butt and finished reading #homestuck
I feel... I dunno, I guess it's just that weird emptiness you feel when you finish reading a book and there's no more to read
you spend so long immersing yourself in this story and knowing and thinking and feeling these characters and arcs
you laugh and cry and love and hate and a part of yourself becomes dedicated to this story and then...
the story is gone, and it's back to our normal lives. no more of it taking up space in your brain
and before you ask, "koreaboo" is rejected due to sounding too much like a yu-gi-oh monster (you know the one)
I need your opinions, fediverse:
what's the korean equivalent to "weeaboo" or "weeb"?
so far I've only gotten "k-nerd" and "koreeb", neither of which are... punchy enough. I need something that speaks to your heart and tells you in no uncertain terms that you're not only a geek but a very specific kind of geek that deserves extra mention
ok animal post time
did u know there's a single species of exclusively freshwater seals?
they live in russia's enormous lake baikal and theyre the fattest roundest things ever look at them holy shit
finally ordered some RAM for my laptop, hopefully it works because I'm REALLY tired of only having 4GB
"X-Clacks-Overhead: GNU Terry Pratchett" is the best http header
silly quirk stuff Show more
@transcendentalConsensus https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/blob/master/app/services/post_status_service.rb is what you want for quirks I think. I found that by looking at how dolphin.town does validation (thank you FOSS)
maybe you could hack in something to check the Account that's passed in (see https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/blob/master/app/models/account.rb) for a field named "quirk" (or whatever) and then use regexes from there (with validation etc ofc)
I'm sure there's some better way to do this but OH WELL
