things to know

i work a lot, i'm very tired all the time, and honestly i'm really shy. i promise that i do want to meet people and talk to them but you might have to poke at me first. if we talk some, please feel free to request my locked twitter because i do talk more there.

i'm generally quite opinionated and i probably hate at least one thing you love but as long as you aren't trying to force it on me i'm not going to fight you about it. different strokes, etc.

that said, i don't tend to talk about racism/etc on these accounts too much but there will be the occasional rt and i will remove people as i see fit if i feel a line is crossed on these fronts.

warnings & tags

please mind this

things i need tagged: weight loss/dieting/body issues

stuff i don't ever want: incest, rape, abuse, child abuse, child sexual abuse, abuse of authority, extreme power imbalances, any form of adult/minor relationship (especially teacher/student), anything that negates or mitigates consent (drug use, dubcon, a/b/o, sex pollen, etc.)

i have zero interest in discussing the morality of liking fucked up stuff, but if you rt/post/talk about any of the above i may mute/unfollow as needed for my own health and safety.
