Mental Health, Neurodiversity, suggest a book book list! 

Inspired by another toot, what are books that have really helped you work *with* your brain? Neurodivergencies overlap so much, I think it's worthwhile to make a list that's inclusive to all mental health stuff. Can you give me a book or website that helped you, with a quick summary of what it really helped you with?

Hey fedi, I could use some . I've been using videos on educational topics and fun how-to project videos as inspiration to get myself into gear and do work. But I'm outpacing the people I've been watching, and I'm running out of videos. Who do you like to watch for ? I'm particularly interested in anyone putting content on but I'm ok with watching on either platform.

I recently had it pointed out to me that I should do an post! So hi! I'm a clown, stiltwalker, juggler, musician, starting to work on some acrobatics, and I work for a (circusfreaks.org) I have a BA in German, and am hoping to start practicing speaking with people more often in German. I was invited to come and try out Mastadon by @RussSharek@mastodon.cloud and have been enjoying it thus far.

notebook finding question 

Anyone know of anywhere online that I can spec out notebooks? I know that a roughly 6x8 notebook with lines that are 8mm apart that's got about 250 pages in it really works for me for my bujo, but I don't know how to go about replicating that. Last time I had to get a new bujo it was safe to wander into stores and physically compare untill I found the right thing, but that doesn't sound appealing currently.

Neurodiversity 

I keep learning new things about migraine. It's a heinously understudied disorder so science is still learning a lot about it, and still has a long way to go. But it is definitely a brain disorder which has impacts far beyond the attacks which are the things most people will identify with it. So we can very legitimately call ourselves neurodiverse people.

Thank you all for joining us. New Friends and old friends and lots of sillyness :) See y'all next week!

Just totally reorganized my gemini capsule and I feel really good about it. For whatever reason it feels like a more comfortable environment to show works in progress on than my normal webpage. I'm not abandoning my website, but I am reconsidering how I'm using it as I'm clearly not doing regular blog posts lol. For now, I'll probably be posting anything long-form on gemini, while I reevaluate things.

So, last week I soldered the wires for a button to run my raspberry pi on and off, using this how-to guide howchoo.com/g/mwnlytk3zmm/how-
This week I'm going to watch some of the Hardware Hacking Village instructional videos. Whether I actually do any soldering today is still up in the air.
