Oh hello! I was just thinking that I should properly introduce myself.

Hello! My name is Heather! I'm a trans girl from California. My pronouns are she/her and they/them ("she walked her dog to the park" and "they walked their dog to the park" are both fine!). I like aqua/hydroponics, cooking, cycling, hiking, and tech. I a:blobfoxuwu:​m a chemical engineer-in-training, a furry, a vegetarian, a forklift operator, and a parent to a dog. I'm polyamorous and in a relationship with two lovely women.

My dream is to have an aquaponics farm that can act as a safe haven / commune for queer people, a physical location where we could simply *exist*.

It's nice to meet you all!

I will dispense love to any and all hot trans girls who, like me, are convinced that they cannot possibly be cute and/or hot.

US electoralism garbage 

I'm not hopeful for the California ballot initiatives this cycle.

Some are good, but confusing. For example, Prop 16, which would repeal this garbage: ( is being framed as "allow employment discrimination."

Some are good, but libs. For example, Prop 25 would give us a risk assessment bail system (versus cash bail), which is wonderful. But libs.

Some are atrocious, but libs.


My "it's complicated" friend (we're not technically dating, but blah blah blah) called me a "beautiful nb" today, and



This is the kind of stuff that I put my friends through on a regular basis >:D

I don't post here a lot, but I *do* lurk. I genuinely love this space, even if I'm bad at expressing it :)

Update: It's most certainly happening. The exact timing is still up in the air, however.

Photos of insects; indirect mentions of death 

The worst part of growing tomatoes is having to deal with these super cute pests.

I remove them and put them by a bird bath so a bird passing by can have a snack. Keep doing the good work, birds!

There's a very real chance I'm going to drop nearly everything, run away to the polar opposite side of my country, and be the groundskeeper for an NPO. It's amazing, but it's terrifying. It's exactly what I needed and wanted, but it's terrifying. It's an opportunity handed to me on a silver platter, but it's terrifying.

If you've dropped your life to go across a country, what gave you the courage to do so?

(Joke) Gatekeeping of queerness 

Oh? You're in a queer relationship, huh? Tell me: which one of you is the Death Grips queer, and which one is the 100 gecs queer?

Hi, my name is Heather.

I've been a Linux user for 10 years, and across numerous distros.

I've used quite a large number of text editors in that time.

I still don't know how to exit out of vim, and at this point, I'm too scared to ask.

Update: it failed after 26 hours with the error message "your system only supports up to 10.3"

I downloaded a binary πŸ™ƒ

Good news though: it did, indeed, fix a few things.

"Hmm... I wonder if this script would be more stable if I had an LTS version of Node..."

*looks up LTS versions available*

"Ooh! This should work!"

*nvm install 12.8.3*


*downloads a tar file*

"Oh, I hope the binary is in that tarball!"

Terminal: "We have detected that you have one core. We're going to do this the hard way :)"

*g++ all of node*


Welp, looks like my Pi's out fishing for a few weeks c:
