Hey. My name is Autumn. I'm an entity of some sort; trans/genderfluid/demigirl/gxrl or something (I don't even know sometimes). My pronouns are they/them/theirs.

I'm a dork. I enjoy making up new lyrics to songs on the radio (and forever ruining the songs for everyone else). I have a very dry sense of humor and I like bad jokes. I suppose I should water that.

I'm an empath. You could say that it's one of my greatest strengths. I enjoy supporting others when I can. I always want people to know that they're not alone.

I do crappy art and I'm also a writer, neither of which I have ever shared with anyone because I am self-conscious about my work, so it's a secret to everybody. Maybe I should have redacted this from my intro

I am a web designer and I enjoy it most when I am inspired

I am really bad about talking about myself so here's what some people have said about me:

"winter, spring, summer, and fall; there is no autumn" -unknown/can't remember

"you aren't stupid, you are a friend" -ex-friend

"you look like you're 25 or so" -liquor store cashier

"you're the second prettiest trans woman that I know" -Zoey (ex-girlfriend)

"i'd would totally hire you as the lead vocalist for my band" -Mara (friend)

Aside from all of this blathering, I am mentally ill. Specifically PTSD, BPD, and DID. I am an open book about this because there needs to be less stigma surrounding mental illnesses. I like to try to help others understand that we are people too and the stereotypes about us are often offensive and just wrong. People need to judge us as individuals, not as stereotypes of our illnesses.

If you've gotten this far, I want to say thank you for reading this. I hope we can become friends. :)

-Autumn

Just realized I can do local-only posts on my instance.

That's wonderful. I'm sure the ones and ones of users on this instance will love that

Self-promotion / clearance announcement 

pluralphobia, PSA on how to ACTUALLY include plurals 

Web browsers, Opera is bad 

uspol, birdsite 

Dear idiot outside: if you are going to play your music so loud that everyone within a mile radius can hear it, at least play something good. Otherwise, stfu.

I woke up and went to my computer. I was greeted by my Pacman screensaver featuring an unsolvable maze.

Windows 7 is EOL on January 14th, 2020. This reminds me of back in 2012 when we were still trying to get people off of Windows XP.

Don't let Windows 7 be another Windows XP situation. Use something better.
