Somehow still seein folks QT that dumbass podcast & other fools.

Please just screenshot. Or report em. QTs still count as engagement & pumps up their clout in the algorithm.

Better yet, just subtweet these dumbasses so other ppl don’t search for em & boost their metrics too.

Today would’ve been Angelo Quinto’s 31st birthday. Today, we honor & remember him. Tonight, we light candles, come together as a community, & celebrate his life. Special thanks/Salamat to Bella (Angelo’s sister) for creating this beautiful portrait. 💙

Schools are getting money to open up again. Obviously they’ve been underfunded since before covid, so of course they’re gonna do whatever it takes to get it. This is a systemic issue that started long before, which pandemic has only worsened. And of course who suffers the most?

Literally every student in the Remote class for my teacher fam is a student of color.

Meanwhile one of the biggest arguments for restarting in-person early is the “learning gap” for black/brown students in the pandemic.

It’s absolutely sickening—but honestly just biz as usual.

Teachers here in 707 have to go back to the classroom for their majority white students BEFORE they get their second shots (or first for some). Meanwhile PoC students who are staying home aren’t prioritized at all.

It’s all about the $$, not health or safety.

Oh meant to post this earlier but

Yay finished a thing for …nothing special but should be published soon.

Next step on my agenda is to help make things a bit more transparent, & try to bring in some more folks who are able to help the effort.

Accidentally deleted a *really* important post in the VSAV Discord…a long list of resources on how to pushblock…doesn't get more important than that.

……But remembered I save all my important discord posts in a text file & recreated it immediately.

How do you watch spiderman far from home & your takeaway is: “I don’t like Zendaya?”

I recently learned “developer advocate” is a position that exists…and it sounds like the perfect intersection between my skills, interests & passions…is there anyone out there who can help me unpack what they do & how I should position myself to become one?

Tuned in yesterday and it was good vibes with good folks and a good game.

Moral arguments will not persuade people who don't share your values.

I keep pushing on, because this is really *nothing* compared to what more marginalized members of our community face just for existing.

And if these efforts can help even one person be able to feel safe enough enjoy our community the way I'm able to, it'll be worth it.

Been working on stuff all day and even though it's relatively simple stuff, it's super draining thinking about the importance/implications of the work & the inevitable BS storm that will surround every step of the way.
