#mastoart question: Are people interested in seeing sketchy things and doodles?
i'm trying to get into the practice of sharing my work regularly again, and y'all? It's hard. So i figure maybe some lowkey stuff is a good way to start?

This is some of the best economic modeling I've seen, period, so obviously it's NOT being done by economists 🤔
tl;dr Even in idealized conditions where everyone starts out on equal footing, and all transactions are fair, market economies will inevitably tend towards highly unequal wealth distribution (i.e. oligarchy), simply due to quirks of statistics. If anyone paid attention, this would be the end of all talk of "meritocracy".
"Tell a scary story!"
"Once upon a time, leaders were vain and corrupt-"
"That's not fiction!"

"Still not fiction."

"And people lost hope and gave up."
"I'll make sure that's fiction!"

i needed this today:
“If you’re actually serious about treating burnout — yours, your partners, your future children’s — you have to be serious about treating it for people you might not even know. If you want to actually make life better, more livable, less of a slog for yourself, that involves making it better for a whole lot of other people as well. . . You don’t need a better organizational app. You just need to legitimately and actionably care about other people.”
Hey! i put together a mashup of a couple few lists i had to hand, and while there are 31 prompts, there’s no numbers by them in the hopes that i don’t feel super anxious about working through something i am not feeling on a particular day.
Please feel free to use the list and/or method!!
Have fun out there, friends!

Over the last couple years, i have been taking xanax pretty much nightly, as it's the only way to get me to keep to a daywalker approved sleep schedule. Which is... not really sustainable in the long run?
To that end, i am looking to quit my day job in the next couple months and will be looking to up my freelancing/personal projects game. The issue with the latter being hella ADHD, and a lot of trauma and poor mechanisms in place for finishing things.
