Happy pride fam. 🏳️‍🌈 you are loved no matter who you love. Never forget the first pride was a riot led by trans* women of color. . Obligatory promo: my Kickstarter for my cat-filled purrsonal finance book is still going. Right now 122 books with financial workshops are going to GLBTQ+ youth experiencing homelessness thanks to our pay it fur-ward backers! Many GLBTQ+ youth are kicked out of their homes as teens and are forced to learn financial coping skills early. I try to be their financial fairy godqueer. You can help make that possible. link in bio. . . . #pride #pridemonth #pastelpride #glbtqyouth #rainbowfam #rainbowfamily #pride🌈 #glbtqmoney #personalfinancebywomen #purrsonalfinance #thefirstpridewasariot

Got stretched out by a professional today and had to say “please don’t touch my hands - they’re kinda crap”. And then I looked at my hands and said “I know you try hard, but you really aren’t great at being hands.” . Having Rheumatoid arthritis means that my small joints are often immobile, gunked up with my own immune system. Anything that puts pressure on my hands and wrists can be pretty painful, even something as simple as writing a postcard. . . All through college I had a disability accommodation notetaker in classes because difficulty holding a pen made it too hard to keep up with proofs. . . But I appreciate how hard my hands try and how far they’ve come since I have been on MiracleDrug - while each weekly shot costs $800, I have much greater control and use of my hands than I did for 5 years. And all my other symptoms are in complete remission 99% of the time. . . . Catching up because I’m extremely behind on uploading my #the100dayproject project photos.

Even inanimate objects have to deal with stupid gender norms. Let me tell you a story: My purrsonal finance book kept getting put in the “women” section of bookstores and was described as a “women’s finance book” by publishing agents. It has no content specific to any gender - it’s for anyone that feels overwhelmed and left out of traditional personal finance. . It has a lot of cats. . But for some reason, maybe because the author has a traditionally feminine name (and clearly men can’t take finance advice from women) or because cats are somehow “only for girls” - or maybe because a slight salmon colored cover make it “pink” and therefore only for women?! . Well, I’m sick of it. I hate gender norms forced on anyone or anything and I don’t want to get shoehorned into the “women’s finance” category. Lots of people like cats. And pink. And I can give advice to anyone regardless where they fall on the gender spectrum (or exist entirely outside of it.) . But I caved and changed my cover to blue. Because that is a “boy’s color” and maybe it will keep me from ending up stuck in a “lady corner” of bookshops and publishing schedules. So here’s the new cover (and title.) . You can pre-order the new *coughbullshit* gender neutral edition starting next Tuesday on Kickstarter.

Finally back at the rink after a week off. Even though I took 15 years off, somehow a week seems more significant right now. I’m making real progress on my spins and moves in the field, though I’m still avoiding working on my double jumps at all, afraid my 30-something knees won’t be up to it like they use to be. Have most of a program choreographed, too. . . . #lloydcentericerink #figureskating #adultskater #adultfigureskater #contrast #lighting #skating #skaterselfie #movesinthefield #skating #iceskating #figureskater #iceskater #lloydcenter #twotonehair #pinkpurplehair #pinkhairdontcare #purplehairdontcare #pinkhair #purplehair #clones #the100dayproject #100daysofcreativitme #100days #365project #selfie #selfportrait

Let’s see how late the F is
I am mad at myself because I had my nice camera in my bag all day in great NYC urban environments in this hot pink suit and I just never got around to taking a proper full length selfie. I did get a full chorus of cheers as soon as I walked out the front door from three random people on the street, so I must’ve hit on something with this look. Instead of a photo manip, this is what we get - my outfit check before I left my Airbnb from my phone camera. Sorry. Will shoot more tomorrow! No energy for a better photo! . . . #twotonehair #pinkpurplehair #unicornhair #animehair #hairtransformation #unifpastelmoto #pastelfashion #heart #stripes #pinkhairdontcare #purplehairdontcare #pinkhair #purplehair #brooklyn #whitebrick #brooklynsnaps #brooklynfashion #travelfashion #travelday #the100dayproject #100daysofcreativitme #100days #365project #selfie #selfportrait #pinksuit #nicework #argentwork #pinkinthecity

It’s a travel day today, and I’m rocking this extremely chaotic look based on the pockets alone. The downside of the colored hair is that it now clashes with a large amount of my core wardrobe.

I am absolutely swamped right now with the “work” part of “creative work” - I have a bunch of design to do, a queue of videos to edit, shows to plan and transcribe, photoshoots to conduct, and a lot of behind-the-scenes emails and contracts that need to get conquered.

Well then
So I look exhausted today because for some reason, instead of prioritizing literally anything important, we spent the ENTIRE DAY reorganizing our kitchen and confronting the sheer number of items I have acquired for free, at thrift stores, or the dollar store that simply aren’t very good at what they do. It was like pretend-moving our kitchen as a form of extreme procrastination. . . #couch #exhausted #wtf #pinkcouch #vibrantcolors #pinklivingroom #pusheen #livingroom #apartmenttherapy #home #flop #the100dayproject #100daysofcreativitme #100days #365project #selfie #selfportrait #photomanip

I have no idea why fire keeps coming up so often in this #100dayproject but it seems to be a theme in my art right now. Maybe I feel like I’m burning something down and building something new?

I left the sport of figure skating 14 years ago. I was never a world class skater, but I was certainly better than your average bear. For someone who got picked last in every single gym class, it was an athletic activity that I was actually naturally talented at. I trained 25 hours a week in high school. I did moves called death drops, death spirals, and flying camels. . I even tested to the highest level in one discipline (the ‘black belt” of figure skating footwork- senior moves in the field). I competed. I split open my chin several times. I won medals. I got tendonitis in my knees and screwed up my shoulders. I even trained at the same summer ice training camp as Michelle Kwan and Sasha Cohen (and still have the t-shirt to prove it.) . . But the sport is expensive, sexist, and homophobic. It’s also not really meant for people over the age of 20 or so. So I left and did other things. But every year or so, I have an existential crisis related to returning to the sport. I always talked myself out of it - “it’s too expensive, you’re too old, you won’t be able to do it anymore, you’re 20 pounds heavier than you were back then.” . But 10 days ago, I made a different choice. The voice in my head that wanted to land a double lutz again was stronger than the voice in my head that told me I wasn’t bendy or young enough anymore. Maybe it was watching too much of @jvn learn from scratch. . So I’m sticking a toe in the water. Or should I stay, a toepick on the ice. . We’ll see how it goes. . . . #lloydcentericerink #figureskating #adultskater #adultfigureskater #contrast #lighting #skating #skaterselfie #movesinthefield #pivot #camelspin #skating #iceskating #figureskater #iceskater #lloydcenter #the100dayproject #100daysofcreativitme #100dayproject #100days #365project #selfie #selfportrait

Head in the clouds. So, in the nick of time, I decided to join up with #the100dayproject again- last year I did a bunch of data art - check out #100daysofqs to see them. This year I’ll be doing 100 days of creative self-portraits. I miss the #365days community on Flickr that I was active in for many years, and maybe this will encourage me to break out the camera and the old photoshop brushes a bit more. Do NOT follow this for realistic self portraits because this is gonna get weird. . . . #100daysofcreativitme #selfportrait #selfie #pastel #clouds #headintheclouds #100dayproject
