Weirdly, I feel my older friends are way better than me at doing crazy shit. And then going into work the next morning, while I’m recovering. I guess experience helps too? Or just more ways to cope with the shittiness.

That’s probably the thing I miss the most right now, my friends from back home. I didn’t realize how close we’ve all gotten and how often I saw them until now. Or how great my friends are in little caring ways. I haven’t been “alone” in the world for a long time, I feel this time away is going to be great for introspection.

Almost a Haiku!

Been living out of the workspace since I got to the Netherlands. Haven't seen anything, but met a bunch of cool people. Slowly learning about plastic. The vegan diet has been weird on my stomach so now I eat cheese at night. Been working basically non stop since i got here. Last weekend, we had a bonfire and i fell asleep standing, leaning on the fence. I wasn't even really drunk. But it's been a blast. I hope I can keep up the energy!

I love the spooky snack section. An Evil Cupcake is an appealing idea

Meh, whatever bullshit JK says on twitter that's not written in the book is just PC-Washing of the text and often total shit literally

Funny how SJW she can be, while Goblins are a total antisemitic caricature.

What are you planning to do in Bhutan?

I’ve just met a guy this week that spent a year working there, setting up a fab lab. He said visiting is quite hard, and you have to be accompanied by a tour guide at all times. But that it’s a super unique and beautiful place.

Would love to hear about your impressions after you visit!

Holy hell, what a story!

Peeing under the fence? it's a bit weird, kind of funny. But also an accurate depiction of regular simple life in a village i guess.

I mean, the "crew" constantly breaks school rules, fights injustice agains the school's evil teachers and undercuts the ministry. They constantly point out how corrupt and mismanaged it is, and do what they need to do despite it being "illegal" or whatever.

How the adults let it happen (or why Harry ends up getting a government job in the end) is the confusing part. I guess as a kid reading it, it is more relatable. Because the world feels like a terrible place with shitty rules and plenty of "wrong" things going on, run by adults that don't really do anything about it.

A thing a have noticed about Harry Potter fandoms, is that there's a disproportionate amount of queer folks that are really into it. The book never once mentions anything LGBT related. It's not like the wizzarding world is super accepting of anything out of the "norm" either. They're all about traditions and old ways of doing things, so I don't know how positive their stance on gay peeps would be anyway.

Maybe it's just the escapism of another world beyond ours that is the appeal? Why it resonates so strongly to a specific niche of people is a bit of a mystery to me.

I quite like it. To me, his paintings have this childlike whimsy quality. And the places he paints remind me of villages in eastern europe, like the one my great aunt lived in at the border of Ukraine and Belarus. It's like a nostalgia for a time and place I've never been to.

Today's my 3rd day in Eindhoven, and it's been awesome so far. Eating delicious vegan food every day, slowly getting to know the 40 young folks in the crew, biking everywhere, barely drinking. Feels super wholesome - I think I needed that in my life right now after the crazy summer of debauchery I've had. Prepping for dutch design week right now and getting in the groove of the film crew.

I wish i could have gotten here earlier honestly, seems like it's been lots of fun and the project is wrapping up in december. But the founder is very seriously looking into buying land in Portugal and building an alternative community. Pretty much a hippy commune, but a high tech version where you document your processes and share it all open source and do R&D for sustainable living.

Had the most amazing weekend with about 8 of my friends at my parent's country house. I'm really lucky they have this place we can use sometimes :) I did miss the climate march in favor of driving up north for the chalet. Feeling a little guilty about that, Montreal had a great turnout at about half a million people, including Greta. My favorite article about the event: https://www.thebeaverton.com/2019/09/trudeau-comes-to-montreal-climate-strike-to-protest-self/

In the final prep before my move to Eindhoven, Netherlands next Monday. I've been (not super successfully) trying to edit my backlog of Africa roadtrip videos so I can finally delete the footage and make space on my computer. I'm going to really need it. It's funny how my YouTube travel thing never really picked up. But i've met some really cool people through it, and the skills are what enabled me to jump into this fun new project. No regrets!

EDIT - Got one africa video done!

Thanks for the encouragement :) I’m happy with where I am and me and my sister are very different. It’s just hard to not compare sometimes!

Urgh this is giving me terrible flashbacks to the time I had to write/format a 25 page book (with timeline graphics, bunch of icons and text) on goddamn powerpoint because the company didn't have a decent software like InDesign or anything. You better know I learned all the ways to layer, group and center every asset. It worked... but damn it SUCKED and took waaay longer than needed. Because once you decide you want that timeline 3 pixels to the left, you gotta go change it on every page and re-align every little detail.

But at least now I have a good answer if someone ever asks me for a weakness in an interview.

European Hubski meetup! Where are you based at again? Just booked my tickets - the project supposedly finishes december 2nd and i'm flying out december 17th. Plenty of time to meet up!

elizabeth  ·  22 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Pubski: September 25, 2019

Well... looks like I'm going to the Netherlands for 2 months to help film videos at this recycling project called precious plastic!

I'm not paid, but i get to live with 40 awesome people doing cool stuff rent free with 3 meal/day provided :) And I might stay a couple weeks after to explore (or just head straight to Berlin and party? still undecided)

It's kind of random how it came to be, I just applied on a whim but now I need to look up cheap ways to get to Amsterdam. I'll probably buy a ticket from Boston since i'm going there soon anyway for my friend's clown-themed birthday party.

My life's really all over the place right now. Ever since I graduated university 3 years ago honestly. I kind of get anxious sometimes, because it's not going in any specific direction, and now I'm 25, pretty poor and never had a real life job. And my degree in marketing is getting more useless every year. But on the other hand I make enough to survive, have lots of fun and free time and interesting experiences. And in the last 3 years I've travelled a bunch, sold beard oil to Urban Outfitters, worked as an architecture photographer, started my own tour company and helped organise a bunch of burning man stuff including a 600 people party. I guess while I'm only responsible for myself, it's fine. It's just hard to to compare myself to my sister sometimes. She just got married a week ago, has a good stable job with potential and almost 100k in savings.

Made myself a rope dart, super exited to learn some tricks. That thing feels like a weapon in my hands, unlike most flow art props and I love it. Maybe by next summer I’ll be good enough to light it on fire? It’s also my sisters wedding this weekend. And most my weekend until beginning of November are spoken for already! Loving my life right now. My only issue is that tourist season is coming to a close and consequently so are my tours. Gotta figure out something to do (and hopefully earn money?) until next spring. I don’t know how realistic it is for me to get a real job at this point. I’ve done enough weird things that I just have a collection of weird skills and no idea how to behave in an office. Not that I really want to be in an office. I have this strange idea of getting government money to build some stuff in our local maker space... don’t know how realistic it actually is.
