Corporations at pride, cursed joke 

I think there's something to be learned from corporations at pride.

Do our flags really SAY anything about us?

We have an image problem - nobody knows what we're about?

How are we supposed to have reach?

How can we sell the Queer Lifestyle™️ like this?

Luckily, I think I've solid this advertising problem of ours. We need a BRAND!

(I'm so sorry)

Anyway the moral of the story is don't become an unpaid Director of two different companies lmao

I think the next steps for me are to just focus my efforts into my trusteeship

As much as I think the org's great and it's been an amazing experience, I probably won't do a second term with them; I want to focus my efforts more locally

Maybe then I can free up some capacity for me to be more involved in some of the mutual aid groups of whatever

Burnout, volunteering (~) 

Last night I sent a preliminary resignation from the nonprofit I helped found last year and it's so upsetting in many ways

It was undeniably the right decision, considering my mental state, and I'm proud of myself for being able to actually bring myself to step back (even if it is something that I should have done months ago).

But it sucks that I feel like I have to move away from something that was so important to me - it really felt like a chance to give back

locking cis people's address field on every website to the one they lived under as a baby

Birdsite, job insecurity (-) 

Birdsite is absolutely insufferable right now with The Current Discourse, and I wish I could just step away from it

Unfortunately, with my job insecurity, and having so many friends there, I feel like I'm tied to big centralised services like that

....not that I have any marketable skills to be self-employed with, but I don't see much hope of a future in formal employment for me if I ever find myself redundant or without renewed contract

I still need the structure

Surgery referral (+) 

It wasn't the interrogative nightmare I was expecting it to be, focusing on my understanding of the procedure and aftercare and...

Your gal's get her first referral signature!

"Hannah just don't install the apps"
You are vastly overestimating both my restraint and my patience

"Why Google Maps?"
I get lost real easy 😔

I don't want a smartphone! I want a ye olde phone but with Google Maps and 2FA codes!

I need every infosec person to understand that surveillance capitalism is structural, not individual, and we are not going to ethically-consume our way out of it please and thank

the bottom 2 rows of the periodic table are basically the "& knuckles" of chemistry

Queer org branding rant (kinda) 

Learning to love a revamped logo I made for the not-for-profit I helped co-found that I hated when I put it in front of people (even though the feedback they gave me was nothing but great)

I think I'm just fatigued of my design work being for queer orgs, and every design brief being "colour pick from the flag(s)" 😅

Even my good work comes with a side of "Oh yikes, something about this feels similar to my less good work"

my attachment style is forgetting the file and having to send another email

I am finding it really hard to not work off the clock right now

I'm producing a resource for school teachers that deals with some pre-Stonewall queer history and I'm just so excited about this whole project, I'm diving as far down the rabbit hole as I can go

Shame the deadline is almost certainly going to force me to finish before I want to 😂

ukpol, shitpost 

Tonight has been strange to the point of being almost incomprehensible

Selfie, eye contact 

Completely forgot that I entirely neglected to share my Gayest Look Yet on here

It's what the kids call "a banger"

In the absence of any real skills or the money for an art therapist I decided to kill two birds with one stone and experiment whilst also making something that needed to be "for me"

Daily)ish Pokémon Logo 

Today's roll was for Beedrill!

This definitely isn't my best work, but I wanted to set myself a bit of a challenge:

- Use at least three elements of its design
- Use only one basic shape

I also decided to try something I usually wouldn't in vector work and introduce just a little bit of texture - why not when it was already pretty experimental?

Daily(ish) Pokémon Logo 

This time we learn the importance of the "(ish)" in the content notes

Had a sudden case of The Big Sads after a really upsetting situation at work on Friday, and then I was busy all day yesterday

So anyway, here's a belated penguin: number 875 - Eiscue
