“You are personally responsible for becoming more ethical than the society you grew up in”. – Eliezer Yudkowsky

Four am. Can't sleep. Watching videos on rhotic and non rhotic English accents instead.

Griffin vultures are majestic balls of floof.
I love vultures: they are really smart and quite elegant.

Fun fact: "Aprils Fool" is translated into "April's Fish" in Italian.
I am not a fan of practical jokes, so here is a goldfish instead.

I just stopped myself from answering an aggressive and unjustified post in a forum I often visit. I still kind of want to do it, but I know that engaging is only going to fuel the fire, so I am glad I can just breathe, step back, and have faith in the mods.
And as I type this, I am still running through all my arguments in my head. 😅

Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.

I am so sorry for the long hiatus: I am doing OK, I think.
I finished this today and I am happy with how it looks.

A funny side of my job is age ratings discussions. You sit down for a serious business meeting with people you only met for work and talk about sex, nudity, crude humour, dismemberment, drugs, profanity, violence, kicking around severed heads and showing underwear...

How do I say this politely mr. Jessen: fuck off.
Also I think you might want to get off your high horse, given your past endeavours...

Things are definitely not OK.
They are pretty far from being OK at the moment.

Currently experiencing that special mix of panic and relief you feel when you thought it was Wednesday and you find out it's Thursday: should I worry I don't have enough time to finish stuff, or celebrate the fact that the weekend is near? 😅

It's been a while, but here is another quick abstract landscape I painted to fend off the anxiety.

My 2020 resolutions are to be kinder and listen more; to be mindful and present, focusing on the "here and now" and making it count; to stop the self-sabotage and to work on getting what I deserve. And play a lot of D&D.
