Pinned post

Alright, time for a biopost:

Hi, I'm Huldra, I'm migrating here from my old instance, which is shutting down. I'm primarily here to yap about:

- conlangs
- the calligraphy I do for said conlangs
- The writing I do (also sometimes in conlangs)
- Ancient Mesopotamian history
- Whatever weird electronics I got on eBay this month
- Coding

If that sounds like your thing, follow me, I guess? Or don't that's cool too

Every time I get a new COVID shot it's a new side effect. First one I passed out, second time I had a fever, now I have a migraine

The autistic urge to add footnotes with worldbuilding details to your stories

Patriarchal beauty standards are bullshit. My ideal girlfriend is a 6’3” woman named Brynhilda who weighs 240 pounds and once killed a moose with her bare hands when she was 15

so are you "can't wear socks" autistic or "must wear socks at all times" autistic

Nothing compares to the unique autistic pleasure of labeling the bookmarks in my books

“6 cubits between his legs”

That’s it, I’m calling it, Gilgamesh has a 3 meter long penis

(1 cubit == 0.5m)

More conlang calligraphy.

“akʷüśunärʷukinit itikšʷünuhšurkuḫiḫiruḫaš”

“The sword that tastes blood will always hunger”

I discovered a bunch of furcon videos from over a decade ago and I’m experiencing some weapons-grade nostalgia right now youtu.be/Lb82sUmiCq4

There's an obvious boymoder who works at the grocery store by me and I keep on trying to make eye contact with her but we're both obviously autistic so it never happens

I know that "is X personality quirk actually autism?" is basically a joke at this point, but I don't know how else to explain by fascination with toolboxes. I have literally hundreds of dollars of toolboxes that half my possessions go in. I'm still trying to find a way to put my books in toolboxes

May the gods show me mercy, I'm trying to learn Latex

Do you ever have a moment where you're just going about your day, then all of sudden you remember you're a real living person and this is real life, then you get sad

Tired: drawing calligraphy guide lines with a normal triangle

Wired: using a machined angle gauge meant for carpentry

I might be single but at least I have my collection of high-end commercial label printers to keep me company

Or something

Less than an hour in and the death the queen is already producing some incredible memes over on the birdsite

We should bring back Mesopotamian names. If I ever have a kid I’m naming them “Erra is my protector” or “Marduk is the creator of my heir.”

I may be exhausted and cartoonishly mentally ill, but at least I wrote *squints at laptop*

… 3 paragraphs. Small victories.

By way of an introduction: some calligraphy I did this week that I’m particularly proud of.
