‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.’

I need IDE recommendations! I was using Atom last semester at university, but as far as I’ve heard it’s become too resource heavy and is now owned by Microsoft after the GitHub acquisition. Correct me if I’m wrong(?)

Sometimes Mastodon seems like a bit of a circlejerk. So many people preaching and amening to each other, but go to another platform where the majority of the masses are and it's pretty silent around these same topics. /showerthoughts

In #2019 I hope to escape from the endless amounts of useless noise and focus on things that I find more meaningful. For me that means receiving less sensory input that tells me how I should think and feel, or that makes me feel worse than before. In 2018 I took up the practice of journaling and found that it helped immensely with processing my thoughts, and in 2019 I want to take up meditation and focus on being a kinder and more positive version of myself🧘‍♀️ .

The more into I get, the more pissed off I am about what's done with my information that I wasn't told about.

Just today, I found my voter profile that has my full name, age, full home address, my political party (unaffiliated), race, gender, registration date, neighbours, as well as all that same information on my relatives.

I am livid. This information should NOT be public where anyone can just search for it.
