compliments and strangers Show more
Hobby: Giving compliments to strangers. (without being creepy)
Motivation: Saving the world.
Reasoning: People carry too much negativity into this world. Each curse, insult, and manifestation of hatred needs to be outweighed by some form of good deed. Compliments are the small change of positivity (pun intended).

venting, consequences of a bad decision Show more
Spent the whole day procrastinating. It's getting worse.
Over the last months I realised that I made a wrong career choice last year. Now it's rubbed into my face every day.
I can't work with something which I don't support whole-heartedly. Depressing, frustrating, grinding. Just the prospect that this phase has an expiration date keeps me going. And art.
With increasing demands and therefore stress, my escapism, social withdrawal and procrastination get worse. I hope I can maintain an effective balance for the next four weeks, when the worst part is over.
Wish my internal communication was better right now. Clarity there would improve things a lot, I think
how to talk to children returning from school Show more
One of my favourite anecdotes:
"[...] Every other Jewish mother in Brooklyn would ask her child after school: 'So? Did you learn anything today?' But not my mother. She always asked me a different question. 'Izzy,' she would say, 'did you ask a good question today?' [...]"
new haircut, consequences Show more
Got my hair cut. About 3cm on average. That are left! Compared to ten times the length I had before. Looked forward to that for weeks.
Feeling new born. World looks somewhat different now. At least in terms of turning my head without using my hands, to actually see something.
Gonna donate my former face framing. Again. Feels good.
Note to myself: On next New Year's Eve, play Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, 14:10 minutes before midnight.
Does anybody know scientific research being done on plurality, but not limited to dissociate disorders? As in how can it be modelled/explained/understood, neural correlates or other.
Both on psychological and neurological level is appreciated, and ideally a combination of both. Thanks!
listening more (2/2) Show more
Have those moments every now and then, where "I" have to laugh every now and then about "myself". Hope that won't happen in public, haha.
Obviously not really settled completely with how to communicate "my" experiences. I guess I'll find a way to refer to mind-things in a while. Phases of transition are always weird in a way.
listening more (1/2) Show more
Recently I have been listening more.
Listening more to classical music. Was always part of my life, but my appreciation somehow peaks.
Listening more to other people. In terms of more listening and less speaking. It's refreshing.
Listening more to the body. Every now and then I pull myself out of the loop, check for needs and aches I overhear in the daily hustle-bustle and do good where it is due.
Listening more to the head. Started to map "my" system. That's kinda big for "me". Finding out what feelings and thoughts belong to what somebody. It's crazy and amazing.

re: working excessively, social isolation Show more
Would have hashtagged that with WorkaholicsAnonymous, but after learning that that is actually a thing, I refrained from that.
working excessively, social isolation Show more
Excessive working can be blessing and curse. Let's ignore extreme cases like burnout for now.
If you're loosing yourself in work, then you can get isolated from people quickly. However, if you're having your trouble with people, that's not a bad thing on the short term.
On the long run however... If you commit to work so much, that you can't really keep up with social live interactions, when you actually want it, then that's a problem. (Still: Not necessarily potential burnout.)
overthinking, posting Show more
So I thought I wanna write positive stuff. Not just complaining about the world, at least not in the beginning. Don't want to increase the badness in the world, right right. Needs to be balanced, and better start positive.
Turns out I essentially started only replying and stopped posting original stuff after that resolution. #overthinking Duh.
Discovering plurality. Mapping my system.

Non-binary and exploring. Pronoun-apathetic.
Respecting pronouns of others, of course!
