my name is ani (pronounced like annie not diFranco); she/her pronouns. i'm in my 30s, white, disabled, queer and probs an autist. i am a visual artist and technically am trained as a cognitive linguist but fuck inaccessible academia.

boundaries: not looking for love or sexy stuff thx, NO unsolicited medical advice, no t/swerfs, actively antiracist and anticapitalist. No diet talk.

Access needs: captions, loads of patience with slow understanding or response time.

fatphobia 

But also WHY is it currently a thing to try to reach out to your child self?? Childhood is not innocence?? Like? You are just a smol flesh sack that has poor balance mimicking everything around you. How is that innocence and freedom?? Like. I ate slim fast in utero, baby, I was ne'er a blank slate.

fatphobia 

I don't think people really get how deep fatphobia can run. Someone recently tried to get me to say my younger self would be proud of my art and think i was cool --

my younger self would only see that i am fat and nothing else would matter. yes, even child me. fatphobia is the pillar upon which my family was built. I would not have thought my gallery or my blue hair or my excellent perspective skills worthwhile bc my fat body would not have been worthy 🤷🏻‍♀️

Elon *shudder* Musk being devoured 

this is my friend's cat, Dougie. Be like Dougie. Nap all day, help spin yarn, eat the fucking rich.

Theory gives you a shortcut: it helps you recognize and articulate patterns quickly instead of swimming in a sea of information and observation, unable to see how it all ties together

Family 

this card reversed is always associated with my family for me bc they are very much not ride or die folks. they are in it for the clout, for the shine, and the second things get hard they are gone gone gone. even far away from them, it can be hard to shake the last clinging vestiges of family yuck during this holiday.

Some days you are the pirate bunny some days you are the reversed pirate bunny 🤷🏻‍♀️. Feeling today's card intensely.

Menstruation, hypermobility

good morning to everyone except the kid yelling outside my window

chronic illnessy mentions 

good evening someone in this building will not change their smoke detector batteries and as i have mentioned the thin walls, and I also have allodynia it actually feels like each and every one of my follicles is emitting the Telltale Chirp.

fighting, yelling 

Idk what's in the air right now specifically but one neighbor on one side just full-on screaming kicked her boyfriend out (long overdue as far as I'm concerned but wdik), and the neighbors on the other side are having a deep sobbing soul conversation that might be a serious fight, might be the start of a good mutual healing process? Idk. All i know is my walls are v thin and i hope you are safe tonight.

lol at my therapist asking me if I'd made any progress and me showing her my page of octopus sketches and her being very enthusiastic but also being like "but yes shall we also talk about your emotional blockage" like um, no, clearly let's talk about octopuses, would you like to know how many hearts they have?

Problematic that y'all think everyone in Britain sounds like they're from London, when in fact there's a huge range of regional UK accents to ruthlessly take the piss out of.

Hello guess what I have been fixating on
