There are few things in life as satisfying as writing a real slam-dunk root cause analysis.

Today for the Atlanta Pride Parade I stood in front of the haters and held prettier things in front of their terrible signs. One of the nice things about being a bit of a weirdo for most of my life is that when people are *obviously* terrible I find them really easy to just basically ignore. Bonus: Now I've learned how to use ear defenders and manage my sensory experience better so that parades and such aren't even terribly overwhelming.

TFW you're quitting in a couple of weeks and you've been burned out for months and you Just. Can't. Even. with this damn project any longer, but your work ethic makes you feel shitty for just filling your desk.

So, I've decided to give a try. Thankfully, I am comfortable with my ugly handwriting and poor artistic skills so I won't fall in the trap of trying to make it pretty. Hopefully this will give me some control back in my life, though.

@epilanthanomai I think I'm getting possible follower spam from but I'm on a road trip and can't investigate. Do you have a few minutes to help?

Me reading the book... "Oh my word! THEY FIXED THAT, TOO!"
