Selfies, eye contact, crowdfunding
Hey. So I talked about this in other instances, but I’m going to be moving to a new place next month. I need help with covering rent and bills while I look for a new job. You can support me directly through Venmo, Paypal or Cashapp.
You can also support my writing through Patreon. I have written some new essays lately and am going to release more.
Thank you for your support. ❤️
Selfies, lewd, self-promotion and crowdfunding
Wish you were laying next to me. 😘
If you want to see more and help me out while I’m appealing a denial of pandemic aid from my state’s unemployment office, you can subscribe to me on OnlyFans: https://onlyfans.com/vickiirose
You can also tip me directly. My cashapp is $Underwraps77, my Venmo is @/FarahT (remove the slash) and my paypal is (deadname warning): paypal.me/farahth
I could really use the support and money. Please share and pitch in if you can. Thanks. ❤️
Like speaking as someone who has long struggled with fitting into workspaces and feels she has only lucked herself into work most of the time, its hard not knowing where you belong. I'm not educated enough to get better work, but if I overeducate myself on higher education that's taking time away from me being a attractive enough employee for someone else to exploit, apparently.
There's no winning. So I have to make my own luck, somehow. Which I already know isn't easy, as someone who has been a content creator for years. Its all hard. But today especially has been hard. And I have two weeks left but no guarantee that my contract will be extended (nor any enthusiasm for wanting to work remotely with this company anymore).
Sucks being out of your depth, overburdened, isolated and precarious. No time for training, just rushes, everything going wrong all the time, learned helplessness and general accessibility problems.
At the end of all of this I may be unemployed for another year or so but at least I'll be free from...this, provided my state doesn't cut down on unemployment to get people to work again or some shit.

“The technical migration toward open source platforms and the consistent use of nationally produced software and applications in the country is not only a change needed to strengthen the Cuban industry, but is also key to strengthening our technological sovereignty and information security.”
"The cyberattack against Colonial Pipeline, which runs from Houston to Linden, New Jersey, began 7 p.m. on Friday night, according to a Federal Emergency Management Agency report reviewed by ABC News.
"We proactively took certain systems offline to contain the threat, which has temporarily halted all pipeline operations, and affected some of our IT systems," the company said in a statement.
Colonial Pipeline said in an update Saturday the attack involved ransomware."
The future has arrived.
It doesn't matter how big, how silly, how quick, how technically proficient, how easy, how derivative it is, just making something, anything at all, however you can, whenever you can, even if it's once a day, one a week, once a year, once a decade…
It's all amazing. You're amazing. Even if you never share it, keep it for yourself forever, or destroy it as soon as it's done. Even if you never finish. Thank you for making it. You're making the world a better place.

Old article, but I love stories like this. Helps me feel a little less alone.
"Lawson was featured in Netflix’s High Score documentary series on the history of video games last year. Born in New York in 1940, he developed a strong interest in electronics during his youth, when he often fixed his neighbours’ small appliances as a hobby. This influenced his decision to become an engineer, and after moving to California, he became a member of Silicon Valley’s Homebrew Computer Club, a hobbyist collective that included Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak among its members. It was his work as an engineer at San Jose-based Fairchild Semiconductor, though, that was truly pioneering. As a side project, he created a coin-op arcade game called Demolition Derby, and as a result he was approached by his bosses to become the lead engineer in the company’s new gaming division."
My favorite of the rougelite genre is still Hades, followed by Risk of Rain 2, but Dead Cells is a pretty admirable effort, not gonna lie.
