hi im grits :) usa, she/her
i like bugs and shiny things and good craftsmanship
but most of all i love computers and i write software for a living so that's lucky i suppose :)

i also love languages (like, human ones, not just programming languages!) and im learning german and korean so if you speak either of those please help me learn! and forgive my terrible grammar :o

anyway feel free to chat w me im just here for the vibes heh

@grits welcome! I am currently writing software for a living too :)

I'm learning Japanese through Duolingo and though I don't know many other languages, I have picked up quite a few Indian scripts (I'm from India) which means I can read things aloud even if I don't understand them :P

I'm also into books and bullet journals and everything non-digital; one of my friends told me I'm the digital and yet non-digital person she's met! I guess I try to optimise the digital so I need less of it

@badrihippo oh my goodness gracious YES duolingo is such a ~*godsend*~
which indian language(s) are you learning? ive heard there are many but i don't know much about the details and im curious! :o

there really is something about analog media isn't there? i was at a notary the other day and she busted out this old school ink stamp to stamp the paper documents and it made me Feel Things. but what is a bullet journal? is that related to those journals with dots instead of lines?


@grits analog rocks!

A bullet journal or is a minimal journaling concept: the idea is to make bullet points for each item, but different kinds depending on what kind of item it is.

To-do lists are a dot which you can then cross off; small circles are for events, and a dash is for random notes. The idea is to just write one line for each point so you can quickly brain dump. Of course, people have added on many creative techniques.

I'll see if I can dig up better examples tomorrow!
