Quoting Jessica. We were talking about bullying. I hadn’t heard such a succinct definition of a bully. It is often “you are different and therefore bad”. I think I’ve always tried to wear: “I’m different and therefore awesome!” That’s easier to do with some things than others.

Am I really stressed about this or just slightly stressed and absorbing others stress? Trying to determine if I would feel the way I feel if I weren’t around people, or taking time alone helps with untangling my emotions from others.

I was being disgruntled about #womenaretoohardtoanimate when Jessica expressed this. It’s easy for me to focus on the spaces where I feel unwelcome or like I can’t be myself—the negative bits around us are very magnetic to attention. But, I’m glad for starting this company, I’m glad for the people I work with, I’m glad for the team I’m part of.

My notes are usually just nodes, to remind me of the things I was thinking about. It’s rare that I write things down verbatim—I don’t really remember them that way.

Usually I just recreate the same thing over and over again. Having someone that takes super detailed notes is wonderful <3

A very practical developer gave me some “comforting” perspective. It’s sometimes good to reset your expectations against a norm. However, if that bar can often be too low.

It’s odd to think of the things that are unpleasant that others enjoy doing, or often enjoying helping with. And, tasks that are bad alone are often fun with the right company. (And how can you not be cheerful when you with someone who is telling you how awesome the thing you guys are doing is?)

When someone says such a thing it’s usually coming from an emotional “I don’t want you here” angle. Not with factual, “you can go deal with your family stuff because the things will still get done” intent.

It was really funny hearing two SPs talk about choosing a guitar to an ISTJ. He (the ISTJ) needs data to be able to compare what feels right. The baseline is this not that rather than this just is (is being feels right or wrong).
