It involved a whole lot of adulting and I’m going to sleep for days. Thanks for all the really sweet messages!

Being a bit more serious now (and ignoring a little bit any critiques I have on how the state regulates relationships), my partner and I have been together for almost a decade. A domestic partnership grants us so many protections and rights. It’s mainly about having each other’s backs and advocating for each other’s wishes to be heard and executed. It’s a pretty big deal for us. I’m really happy we just squashed one of the biggest worries I’ve ever had.

It’s done! I can’t believe I got really emotional reading and signing what’s basically a contract, lol.

Well… It looks like my partner and I will register our domestic partnership tomorrow (!!!!).

On a more serious note, people need to understand that some of the reasons why something works for them may be the exact same reasons why something *doesn't* work for someone else.

Not that using a cable helps a lot in this case since Lightning is still stuck in USB 2.0 speeds anyway.

"I haven't used a cable in years, everything I have is in the cloud. I don't understand why you would like to use one." I take that you never ever ever experienced connection issues?

Conversations about the reasons why I don't like iOS and its derivatives always end up with me rolling my eyes because someone is trying to convince me I'm using my own things wrong.

I love that Neo still uses an ergonomic keyboard (even though he’s definitely holding that vertical mouse wrong).

I hate going through the process of Buying Something. You’re always trying to figure out all the ways manufacturers and vendors are trying to deceive you while you’re determining what’s your threshold for deception.

Eye health 

I feel like my body is boycotting itself. Sigh.

Eye health 

I’ll be honest, I’m getting a little discouraged. I’m wondering if eye patches could be a better solution but they’re not made of that purpose, they’re usually one use and so expensive. 🙃

Eye health 

Using an eye mask wasn’t helping, using proper medical tape to shut my eyes every night is actually hurting my eye lids. Using that eye gel on its own doesn’t help much.

Eye health 

I’ve mentioned this a couple of times already but I sleep with my eyes open. It’s something that’s happened throughout my entire life but for some reason (moving to a different city, drier weather, or just being something that only causes issues decades after, I don’t know) only now it is causing actual health issues.

I have some noticeable scars in both eyes. I bet there are a couple more in the making. I use eye drops and an eye gel every day. I’ve been taping my eyes shut.

I’m watching my partner go through a list of job postings for junior developers and damn, shit’s tough.

If you make a piece of software, and people are required to use that piece of software in order to, say, pay for their housing or groceries or pay back a loan, you are on the hook to make sure that software works for _every single person_ who needs to use it.

All of them.

Every screen reader user. Every person with muscle issues who can't use a mouse. Everyone who doesn't speak English. Everyone with three first names, or no last name. Everyone who is Irish or Jewish and has a ' in their name. Everyone with slow internet.

EVERY person.

"Oh we don't have the resources to do that!" Great. Then you don't have the resources to make and sell that kind of software. Pack up and go home.
