I got this boba tea flavoured ice cream today.... gonna try it tonight and see how it is

somewhere along the line, the call for diverse characters in publishing mutated into "don't be diverse or you'll do it wrong and the straw man browns will cancel us all" and it all stems from not having poc people in higher-up positions

After many lockdown-related delays I am finally doing my in-the-middle-of-a-rainforest arts residency!! (it’s local) Not for fun though: I have three GNs at different stages with looming deadlines πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
