The last months I've been watching k-dramas obsessively, so I picked-up learning Korean, am in week 3 now. I love the Hangul alphabet symbols, which was a radical language restructure in the 15th cent, switching from traditional chinese characters to simpler phonetic syllables.

The sounds are very hard to grasp though, but I found this open source python program anki, that helps memorizing with cards!

It works on many platforms too. And not only for languages.

"Local CDN" This extension emulates Content Delivery Networks
(CDNs) by intercepting requests, finding the requested resource and redirecting it to a local equivalent.
The local redirection of CDNs have two main advantages over fetching from CDNs.
1. You will get large libraries instantly without connecting to CDNs which save you bandwidth
2. There will be no connection to the CDN and hence no tracking from this CDN.

if your antifa work consists of pasting stickers, tagging etc. please read this.

when I moved to Germany I was depressed, dysphoric, didn't speak the language, didn't leave my room, didn't make friends for >2 years. Trump had just been elected on racism against Latinx immigrants, and I had trauma from gender-based street violence in my country. Europe was having an immigration crisis, and parties like the AfD seemed on the rise. I felt as afraid in the streets as I learned to be in Brazil, scurrying through the evenings, heart thumping. Are neonazi emboldened by all this? Am I going to get beaten?

I was vaguely socialist but not politically aware. I was barely aware of what was "antifa" until Spencer got punched. It was a surprise for me to see antifa graffiti and "immigrants welcome" stickers almost every block, everywhere I went. It made me feel like there were people here who would stand by me (correctly :anarchismred:⁠).

if your antifa work consists of pasting stickers, tagging etc. it makes a lot of difference. you make people feel seen and cared about. with all my heart, thank you <3

When writing provokes discomfort in me (which is, very very often), I try to keep in mind that writing is a good excuse to read stuff. I write to learn and understand more than expressing myself. The journey is what matters.

for those where the season is getting warmer, instead of buying ant traps and what not, consider using peppermint oil and bay leaves to naturally ward them off without harming them.

also consider setting up a bee watering station if you can, to create a safe place for bees to get water. be careful to monitor it because still water can also be a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
