    According to BoM it’s supposedly sunny in the day then high chance of rain at night ~ Melbourne

    I have completed some draft Community Guidelines for the group. https://aussie.zone/post/53977

    Hopefully they are ok - it feels a lot like writing an assigment and waiting for it to be marked :-)

      Be excellent… ‘Nuff said. But seriously Raven, thanks for your work and of course to everyone else who got this kickstarted and rounded up the troops. It was heartwarming to see.

      I think that all sounds very reasonable. My only quibble is that it should be affects and affecting Melbourne.

      Clarifying the gif part are you saying no gif or to write a description before adding one? I don’t usually do gif unless it’s a pm to a friend, but just trying to understand that part when I read it, due to it can affect some people with its nature

      I’m pretty happy with everything here. I think that, my major concerns are just trolls and such. Since what I remember of the DT was a lot of really welcoming folks (even now here while I stopped being active in the DT it feels like this place is safe… a safe space as one would say), but when it came to posts on the subreddit at large there were just some horrible and mean people, especially when it came to threads about the current climate/the American culture war they’re trying to bring here.

      Obviously, everyone has a right to their opinion, just as I do. But a lot of those would get ugly, luckily they’d be pretty downvoted quick. But other than that, it’s a pretty simple rule list that makes sense. And I’m sure you folks on the admin team will edit the rules with enough warning if something comes up!

    Instead of doing anything constructive I have been reading about the Aboriginal stories about Raven (AKA Crow). Known as Waa to the Wurundjeri People. Waa was originally a white bird, who stole coals/fire from seven sisters who were keeping it to themselves. He either dropped some or ended up throwing it at other animals who were wanting to have some too, which is how fire came to be used by mankind. In the process Waa started a bushfire in which he was burned, which is how he became black.

      Waa is an awesome thing to name a raven. A name I can hear!

        I can hear it as well - but I think that’s because there is one in the backyard right now!

      There are several stories about crows I’ve heard from different nations. They usually count them among the cleverest and most mischievious of animals. I love thier stories.

    If anyone remembers all my long rants in the Reddit DT, I have some kinda good news about it.

    Things at the hosue have been much more settled, it appears one of them (the main noisy one) will be moving out and back in with his family. He hasn’t been here in about a month and a half, so things have been more chill. One of the others is just going about her life as usual. She tells and throws things once every day or two still, but not as bad as it was. And then the other one is still chill, he’s never caused many problems

    And on the lead tenant thing I mentioned a while ago, it seems things are going well. They lined up a house that sounds chill and I had my first meeting with the program coordinator on Tuesday. She gave me a rulebook I need to read, and then this coming Friday we meet with her again and I officially sign the papers. After that, it will be about 4-8 weeks until I move in.

    It’s still stressing me out a bit, mainly because I don’t fit one of their requirements properly and I’m only about half fulfilling it. Allegedly they’ll be pretty lenient on it, but lenient as in they’ll accept me, but if I don’t 100% meet it within a few months, I’ll be locked back and sent back into Resi.

    It’s also kind of fucking with my head because I’ve been here for 4 years, and although I’ve never considered it to be, or felt that it is my home, that’s the longest I’ve ever lived anywhere in my entire life. For about 3/4 of those years it’s been pretty bleak living here and felt like a never ending nightmare, but now that it is ending and comparitively the end is so close I can basically touch it, it feels is backwards to what I’m used to

    This baby has gotta be shit out. 2 giant poops in under an hour. How can he fit so much poo in him?!

      From what I hear, the poo capacity of babies defies the laws of physics.

    Bad thing about this is not getting notifications of replies and so hard to maintain a convo in a timely fashion…

    Had an interesting day, yesterday I watched a pretty cool YT of Danny Elfman, he’s old and weird and awesome and so talented. But watching him gave me the confidence to be older and weird too. I’m just miserable if I wear beige and be “comfy” and be my “age”. I like to have some style, I like to express myself, have fun, wear black even. So today I bought black and stylish stuff, including a cute jumper with embroidered stars and moons and a grey cashmere top . Felt good. :)
