About Me, stuff I'll give CWs for but sometimes love talking about edition:
✊ anarchist / antifa / passionate about politics, social justice, and community building
🔗 kinky, nonmonogamous, critically-thinking submissive
gender stuff! complicated body stuff! societal expectations around gender and body stuff! wow.
🧠 mental health struggles (mainly around PDD / depression)
other interests that i sometimes talk about:
💻 i'm a comp sci student. still learning but about to start a co-op focused around data analysis in january
two cats and a dog live in my house and i love them v much
🎨 lil crafty. don't always know where the borders between witchcraft and general crafts lie
🤓 get Big Nerdy over things, so tend to post a ton about the Thing of The Week and then perhaps never again.
#introduction Hey, I'm James. I'm 26 and I use they pronouns. i'm a very lazy secular witch, a soft animist, and a tender queer. i love gestural magic and sigil work and doing magic with found objects. this looks like a really neat platform and i'm excited to get to know you all! :)

tumblr purge, weed, melodramatic -
((scene: me, casually browsing through my fine selection of blocked images. casually noting posts reblogged from users that no longer exist on tumblr. noting that a lot of posts are just gone in general. still being slightly surprised just how many of my posts have gotten the chop, how bare the blog feels. taking slow pulls from the vape. thinking "i don't know if i want to be on this site anymore" about something that used to feel like home"))
I always forget to caption images when I post from mobile. Descriptions: two pictures of a small brown dog tucked in to a fuzzy plaid blanket. There is a pillow behind his head. In the first image he is yawning hugely and in the second he is lying on the pillow and giving the camera the side eye
practice building thoughts
'tis the season for lots of thinky thoughts about giving and solstices. i dont really have holidays built into my practice and haven't really celebrated the solstices in the past, but i do have general seasonal feelings around the days or nights getting longer, weather patterns changing, and so on.
gonna try to write a thing soon. have been thinking more about how i wanna build more regularly scheduled + purposeful stuff into my practice
The one piece of advice I wish I could go back in time and give myself is don't assume you know how to cook something.
So frequently I thought that what my family did was the way you cooked something and it lead to me thinking I didn't like most homecooked foods.
A few years ago I learned how to properly roast vegetables and that was life changing.
Just this week I looked up how to cook chicken and realized I'd been cooking it wrong this whole time.
Now I'm always gonna check.
If you, like me, want the option of auto deleting old toots, 'Forget' seems to do the trick!
You can use faves to tag ones you want kept (viral ones, important conversations, etc), toggle to include or exclude media posts, choose how long you want your untagged toots left up and how many toots back it'll go before it starts doing its thing. https://forget.codl.fr #meta #delete
