work, mental health, negative, asking for help
What do you do, if you plan to work, you even know the task and what to do to at least get started, then when you sit down to do it, your mind blanks out and you cannot do it?
It's like a wall, blocking all work related thinking, besides, of course, worrying about it.
Not sure if it's relevant, that the work is coding.
"Water simulation on kinetic display makes water noises, has no sound device" - if there was a buzzfeed for hackers, that would be the line. ^

For any trans people who need to hear this:
Your body is beautiful. You're worthy of being desired, if that's something you want.
Whether you choose to transition (and in whatever direction you want), and wherever you are in that process -- you're seen, you are believed, and I'm proud to be your sibling.
When you look in the mirror, you deserve to hear, "Hey, Beautiful." If you don't hear it in your voice, hear it in mine.
Your strength is incredible. You come from a long tradition of transgender people, stretching back to the earliest days of humanity.
Let the haters shout into the void. You don't need to. The Void already loves you. ✨

thinking about a post i read the other day on quora about how "high functioning autism" basically just means "autistic people who have the capability of masking often/believably enough to be vaguely accepted by the status quo"
and how huge a problem this actually is, b/c most of these autistic folks who have to mask constantly suffer from chronic fatigue and probably have had their stims and other coping mechanisms trained out of them making it even harder to unwind when/if they can
I much prefer very algorithmic, synthetic speech for this. Not only is it very predictable in how it pronounces things, but it also speeds up much more. If you speed up, for example, Google's Wavenet voices, they start slurring words. This is obviously no good at all. It's authentic, sure, but it's annoying to me. I'm happy to use AI speech, for example the Siri voices that come with the new MacOS, if I'm reading something longer like a book, story and so on. But for every day use? No thanks. I think it's important that we don't get too carried away here. If I had the choice, I would choose a non natural voice. And that by quite a big margin. Here's your fun fact of the day!
