If anyone tries to tell you rent forgiveness or rent strike is extreme or radical in these times just show them this:
U.S. Retailers Plan to Stop Paying Rent to Offset Virus Closures
hell brain, covid
oooooo I sure hope I don’t develop some weird fun new agoraphobia out of this social isolation business
I can see myself getting very weird very quickly, because as it turns out, this isn’t just sitting in my apartment, it’s far more sinister than that
I’ve been scheduling times to talk with friends to help stave that off but still, oof
My IWW chapter has a solidarity fund to help workers who are facing hardship. If you can help, we can use it. If you can only share this, we can use that too.
If it requires too much upkeep to get done or has a possibility of getting forgotten, it's gonna keep not getting done. We have automatic state changes installed in a couple of projects. Make it universal. Stop allowing exceptions that skip half the workflow of you don't want them to seem superfluous.
Don't install automatic state changes to only one type of ticket and get me used to not having to deal with the state changes and then trip me the fuck up when that doesn't happen.
This is absolute torture for people with ADHD. It requires far too much upkeep.
Don't have everything numbered in such a way that people refer to everything by their opaque IDs and I have to fucking look up what they are talking about every time.
Don't have a system optimized for one specific workflow and then try to cram every possible sequence of states into that rigid workflow.
I fucking hate JIRA. But not because it's bad software, but because it's built for neuronormative people and my brain constantly grates against the workflows that make sense for them
Don't fucking make several "complete" states that I have to memorize how they work and then get on to me when I inevitably don't know what the difference between "Complete" and "Closed" is. Those mean the same goddamn thing in a ticketing system
So, there's this thing that happens when you have ADHD called emotional disregulation.
Basically, for the exact same reason you struggle to manage where your attention goes, you also struggle to manage where your emotions go.
This is why it's so easy to spiral out emotionally when you have ADHD, especially since people with ADHD receive orders of magnitude more negative feedback over the course of their lives than neurotypical people.
mh ------, social networks
I really don't get social networks or something. Like, how do people even talk? I don't ever think I've ever been the recipient of a private message or anything. Do you just say bullshit and people follow the funniest people? Is that how it works?
And now I realize that I sound like an asshole who thinks that they deserve friends or attention when they give none to anyone else. So the spiral continues.
mh ----, venting
It's self-reinforcing and so damaging that I've become immobilized and I won't even take the barest steps to help myself because I don't want to fuck it up
Never be a perfectionist, because you will always disappoint yourself and you never have an accurate idea of your own limitations
I post dumb stuff and software sometimes
