Overwhelmed

It’s hard to shake this feeling of being utterly overwhelmed by life. Whether it’s simple things like keeping my house clean or bigger things like how I can make a difference in the world, it’s too easy to feel lost these days. I keep thinking about how we grow up learning about super heroes or …

Let’s take a step back

When I think about what I get out of Social Media, and what I wish it looked like… …I just think of blogs and RSS feeds. Of course blogs weren’t the best for keeping up with everybody back in the day – everyone had blogs on different services, and they lacked privacy settings except in …

Social Ocean

THERE ARE TOO MANY SOCIAL MEDIA PAGES. Seriously, I’d love to just post in one place (my “hub”), and then have my hub forward that post to all my social media platforms, or easily select which posts to send to my @Moosader accounts (Twitter/Facebook/Mastodon), and which posts to send to my @rejcx Rachel accounts (Twitter/Facebook/Mastodon/Diaspora), …

Kind Software

The struggle How can we fight the powers-that-be in our normal, daily lives? What can we little people possibly do when even our one power – voting – is ignored. We call senators and tell them how to represent us, and they ignore us for their own gain. When our daily lives are monetized for …

“This semester, I’ve begun at UMKC. I’m taking Advanced Software Engineering, which is doable. I can get through this semester and I can work with a small team to build an app. Piece of cake.” (http://rejcx.moosader.com/2018/09/exhaustion-depression-and-directionlessness/) Lol nope. I took an incomplete in the course because I was really unhappy with the structure of the …

Exhaustion, depression, and directionlessness

Maybe if I hadn’t been so over-worked the last two years, I would be willing to stick with it longer. But, working up to 12-hour-days on days I have class, and then spending so much of my time off-campus also at a computer working – prepping, grading, answering questions, etc. – has thoroughly burnt me …

DIALECT: A Game about Language and How it Dies

I love languages, and I love constructed languages. Years ago, I heard about a Kickstarter for this game: Dialect. I was excited, and so were other Esperantists. I finally received my physical copy of the game and I was so excited to play it with friends, and seeing the variety of Backdrops provided with the …

Right to religion

People have a right to practice their religion. I generally see religion as a good thing, and I feel like any accusations that “this religion causes this!” or “that religion causes that!” is just scapegoating something that does bring happiness, value, community, and support to peoples’ lives. Religion isn’t what causes Bad Things. Humans, abuse …
