my current hyperfocus
My university course. Learning html, css and playing around with layout. I want to do this all of the time, I wish I didn't have to do any of the other things like earn money and cook dinner, so I can just read and learn and experiment all day long. I hope this hyperfocus is one that stays forever.
what is currently irritating me
People describing the act of holding others accountable for the harmful things they say and do as "cancelling".
a social issue I really care about
Trans Peoples Rights. Those that seem to be controlling the discourse on this topic are older, and are not at all reflective of our British values, and I am really scared about the implications this is having on our law making.
something I always buy
Any thing printed on a risograph, especially a zine or poster art. I love the Riso so much, I even called a leasing company to get one for myself but they never called me back!
a project taking up all my time
Setting up local maker markets. I have started to work on a better website for this organisation I have created. It is live but I have never been happy with it. Now that I have started this course I have started thinking about updating it, and I have also even started altering the html and css in the wordpress theme.
a topic I try to worm into conversations
The Danger of a Single Story by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche. Watch her talk about it in this TedTalk.
