personal drabbles, what would be my journal ?

––February 14

Reading Time: < 1 minute
  • Hating things is underrated. Learning to react, exist, and glorify in extremes makes me all the more impassioned. I have never loved as much as when I knew that I was allowed to hate.
  • Growing older and more detached from all the people I used to know…
  • For someone pushing the word of creation, I am clearly unkind to myself and far from a believer that self-love is the most radical act of creation.

If I end up writing about the things I’ve read I’ll make it a habit to update this and link it to the related post. πŸ™‚ Also, please please send me recommendations!

I used to never track the stuff I read. Trying to change that this year!
I still mostly read articles or whatever digital longform I can get (not enough space for books at the moment, and are hard to get a hold of).
I try to track these types of reads on

Test Stream

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Trying something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. Streamed Genshin Impact dailies today, not even my core group of friends follows yet (RIP).

  • Maybe I can just stream whenever I play videogames… mostly compelled by how I consistently play Genshin Impact. To put an angle to it, Genshin Impact (especially when doing abyss runs) with a lore-focused approach to discussion – I am making my first fansite in over a decade dedicated to its lore, after all. Communities that revolve around something new, like a podcast and constant story in a stream of consciousness form.
  • Indie games! I play a lot of them and would like to record my runs and share them with people. I always recommend games that many people have never heard of, and have humble bundles and libraries to sift through and enjoy. Finishing stuff in a sitting is great for me.
    I want to rerun Papers, Please and Stephen’s Sausage Roll (among many others), go through the Sokpop collection.
  • My Dwarf Fortress world… (this one I’m afraid of actually being too stupid to stream for)
  • The PvE Minecraft server I run with friends and the banter that ensues. πŸ™‚
  • Design streams with my personal side project and experimental work, and some productivity/educational work streams with Developh (Science & Technology, hello) –– we’re planning on creating some sort of streamer network to encourage creativity, connection, etc.; potentially discuss trends as we write and prepare projects and resources.

Is there anything you want me to stream?
