my therapist: "....."

(I think it's fine to seek advice from any divination method, including horoscopes, but not fine to blame your own situation on the starts instead of working on it)

last post inspired me, so I sent an e-mail to the director of the local trans resource center asking if we can sell their pronoun pins on Saturday (and give them the money ofc)

complain 

Today was a really bad day so I'm going to spend some time really late at night focusing on fun art.

If you have something you'd like to see as a block print, hmu.

I'm especially looking to do a series of pride statements (within reason - local trans resource center sells pronoun pins and I don't wanna step on their toes at all).
