How many of us thought 2020 was peak awful?

Boy, were we wrong. 💩

The term “United” States is a giant fucking oxymoron (emphasis on “moron”).

Bad Cologne Name Guy is still as awful as ever. He would back the GOP. 🤷‍♀️

He’ll do and say whatever it takes to stay relevant, just like The Former Guy. Neither are rockstars worthy of admiration, worship, or praise. 🤦‍♀️

Still placeholding this account here because of the likes of him. 💩

How’s my roller skating going, nobody asked? Well, about like this. 😭

I broke my ankle last Saturday - skates were on, I stepped onto sloped, wet grass to avoid rolling too fast down the driveway (it was raining a bit), my feet slipped, my left ankle turned in and snapped as I fell hard.

So yup, that’s that for now. I blame nature, not the skates. 🤣

Recovery could take several months, though. 😭*SIGH*

Scratch the lawn chairs, I’m bringing yoga props. I can pull off more impressive feats with those to distract the “enemy.”🧘🏻‍♀️

I for one look forward to this “Civil War” Former Guy is trying to stoke. I’m bringing snacks and lawn chairs…who wants to bring the weed? 🤣

Learning to roller skate again for the first time in 30 years has been an experience. But a fun one. 🛼

Oh, I’ve fallen on my ass, my knees, etc., but I’m getting bettah! I wear all the protection I need, so no worries. So far my worst injuries have been bruises and I scuffed a finger a bit.

Thank goodness for YouTube tutorials. 🤣

Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about this peaceful refuge. 🙏

Especially since the media keeps reinforcing multiple reasons why Twitter alternatives could become even more popular soon. 🤦‍♀️

Every day, Twitter reminds me how unhealthy a place it is. Like a growing cesspool of anger-inducing, toxic white supremacy everywhere. Ugh. 🤦‍♀️

It was “nicer” in the post-Former Guy 45 world, before Bad-Cologne-Name-Guy wanted to buy it - not by much, but better than it is lately. 😖

Boy, but aren’t we alive during a weird time in history. 🤦‍♀️

Hearing the news about Naomi Judd’s passing today has me wanting to remind friends and strangers alike:

If you are struggling with mental illness, never be afraid or embarrassed to reach out and ask for help. People care about you and want to help and support you no matter what. 🙏

You are NOT alone.

I’m not saying I’m a great artist, average at best, but I do enjoy making art on occasion. (Have all my life, thanks to my mom and teachers who always encouraged me through creativity.)

I enjoy working with various mediums - watercolor, gouache, acrylic, art markers, polymer clay, and digital art, among others. ADHD has me constantly jumping around. 🤣

Here’s a sampling of some more recent work I’ve done.

Every day seems to be another day closer to Twitter going totally ape-shit mad.

Rich-Guy-with-a-Bad-Cologne-Name seems hellbent on causing mass disruption, anyway. What a waste of money, talent, and resources. 🤷‍♀️

So nice to not see idiotic trends ala Twitter here. Such as the morons currently drooling over Former Guy returning to his own failing social media platform.

Frankly, they can stay there and fester in the BS all they like. 🤣

I don’t want to hate those “other” platforms - they are necessary evils in what I do for a living, but it’s becoming a wasteland that’s hard to sort through anymore.

It was better-ish for a time post Former Guy banning, and early in the Ukraine invasion, but it’s all creeping back in again. 🤮💩😖

Again, why I’m in here. 👏

Considering how sensitive the bot-filters at Facebook have been, and Twitter is becoming as of late, I imagine many people will either quit social media altogether or seek alternatives like Mastodon. 🙏

I like it so far. 👏

Also, if anyone out there uses Polywork, here’s my profile:

polywork.com/jillthepill

I haven’t updated it in a bit (been immersed in yoga teacher training), but it does highlight some of my previous work and skills, along with my LinkedIn bio.

Always open to discuss potential freelance assignments and collaborations! 👏
