BAD SHIT THAT HAPPENED IN 2021
✖ end of my 14 year relationship (because i did no want to ruin my mental and physical health to have a baby that would likely live to see drastically worsening climate change)
✖ still working retail in a fucking pandemic lmaooooooo
✖ still had plantar fasciitis
✖ continuation of big fiasco where i had to fight my employer's stupid third-party administrator for disability accommodations
✖ a lot of Stupid happened in my online communities (NFTs, patreon fucking up, etc.)
