An updated / .

My name is Zoë; I'm non-binary and genderfluid pansexual in my mid 30s.

By the day, I work in the books business. All day long, I'm hella :100_gay:. I love reading, writing letters, drawing stuff, taking photos of nature (especially plants and birds), and sometimes a bit of writing for fun. I identify as leftist, humanist, and anti-authoritarian. Spiritually, I follow the Unitarian Universalist way.

Currently, I'm being treated for depression and anxiety disorders. I use CWs liberally, and if you'd like me to CW my posts, please let me know.

I am trained in mathematics, physics, and astronomy. I love learning more about the world and its people.

All interactions are welcome, as long as we remain respectful towards each other as human beings, no more no less.

It's nice to meet ya! :heart_nb:

If my posting or interaction causes you discomfort in any way, you have the choice to let me know and help me be a better person. The choice is strictly yours. I understand you may not want to do that, and also I may not deserve it. Meanwhile, I appreciate that I am given the opportunity.

mutual aid request, asking for help 

Hey everyone, I'm a trans woman of color and I'm seriously struggling to survive right now and I really need help with rent, food and medicine. Any help is massively appreciated <3

I’m 36 weeks pregnant and could go any minute, trying to get our little family into our own housing before birth. My wife has good Union job prospects, we’re just running very low on time.

mutual aid, legal, boosts+, divorce, transphobia, debt, stalking 

Hi again. I'm sorry that the last begpost was so vague. I felt like it had to be to stay safe, but I think it backfired. :/

I'm trans and neurodivergent (not to mention a bunch of other labelspam). I've been on the fediverse for several years, but I'm in hiding now because I'm being stalked by my ex-spouse. The marriage was bad and it got significantly worse after I came out. We're in the middle of a divorce and I'm several thousand dollars in debt thanks to legal fees. On top of that I'm also being sued for credit card debt. I can't get an y more loans. I need help. If you can spare anything or can boost this post, you would have my gratitude, and hopefully I'll be able to pass the help along when I'm in a better place financially. 💜

help pixel pay for college :boost_requested: 

hello friends

I just got my final bill for my last year of college. $17,200. I only get about $2,000 in loans. That still leaves $15,200.

I currently live with my transphobic parents and cannot sustain living here after school. I've paid for all of my schooling through working up to five jobs at a time up to now, but with each year that passes by, the school has been rolling back my financial aid and it has been very difficult to keep up. I'm still living on a meal a day.

If you'd be willing to toss coin to a neurodivergent, queer, trans, east/southeast asian person, my handles are below.

Thanks to everyone who has supported me thus far.

Black trans grief support request, food delivery vouchers 

hi y’all. Dealing with the loss of my grandma last week. It’s really hard to cook right now and I’m not able to work either. Executive function is very hard right now. Would definitely appreciate some meal train/Uber eats/door dash vouchers or just some Venmo/PayPal/zelle. Please use the family and friends option instead of the goods and services option.

The good thing with lotus seeds is that we can eat the endosperm (nut) and make a tea substitute with the core (germ).

And I already know what to translate for the next week.

My friends, as if by following me here (they don’t), gave me a notebook in the theme of Marina Tsvetaeva 🥰

And that’s going to be it.

Reminiscence by Hsiung Hung, translated from the Chinese

For you there’s a sea, brimming
With longing — calm, pristine
Cradled in your arm a city sleeps
Where my dreams are slow and serene

A feeble lamp, under a half-moon window
I see your name — laces of gold and silver
For five decades binding me in their coils

A sea of longing —
In the tranquil, walled city
Sweetest voices descend and their petals scatter
Over the dream-fabrics on my skin

begpost, urgent, please boost 

Hey all.

In addition to the cost for my marijuana card, I also ended up with a surprise bill for my echocardiogram of $500 which was just straight overdrafted from my checking account. Thanks to everyone's generosity I'm halfway to being back in the black!!! Please keep sharing <3

Marijuana helps me keep my panic attacks in check and reduces their severity when they do happen, and recently this has been very very needed. And this echocardiogram is essential in diagnosing the nature of my afib. Please, anything you can offer to help pay off this $500 so I don't get addressed further fees helps.
