Intro Toot!

Hi, I am Zen. A bisexual polyamorous Jedi Knight.

I like to write, code, and build electronic gadgets. Avid roleplayer either tabletop or in the virtual world of Second Life.

Both mentally ill (Bipolar I) and chronically ill (Dermatomyositis with Interstitial Lung Disease) and while people may think I should not let my illnesses define me, they impact every moment of my life and are not easily dismissed. This is my lived reality.

Constantly evolving.

So I am one of those "Real-Life Jedi" and I have been doing it for about 15 years. I started a Jedi website in 2012, and I recently launched a program where I teach Jedi Philosophy in real-time over videoconference. Tonight was our first class, and I think it went splendidly. Here is the recording so you can see for yourself youtu.be/fiSDEa7w5WU

Today's mascot was requested by our very own real life Jedi @ZenMondo and created by @Feverdreamless ! It shows our mascot, Fuchsia, cosplaying Rey from the new Star Wars series!

May the Fourth be with you!

Wewt! Our game for Ludum Dare 46 now has 20 ratings in all categories (20 in Humor 23 in everything else) so we will get a score at the end of the competition! I count this as a success for my first attempt at the jam. I am pretty pleased and so grateful to my teammate who introduced me to all this. I really want to do it again in October for the next one!

I just realized I had not posted the result from our attempt at Ludum Dare 46. My teammate Anna Lightsky and I made a short text adventure called "Mission of Hope" which takes places aboard a space-ship during a disaster. Can you save everyone and get the winning result?

Pandemic 

So looks like I am doing the Ludum Dare Jam this weekend. The theme is "Keep it Alive" and my teammate and I are hashing out ideas for a text based adventure in a cyberpunk setting.

Hey here is an anti-fascist collective that is making Hand Sanitizer to distribute to those in need in Portland. I just donated to their gofundme fundraiser, and I would urge you to do the same.

For these trying times, I offer you a rendition of Mad World by Curt Smith and his daughter. Diva.

I asked for friendship bracelets for my birthday during quarantine and they have started to arrive. One is the non-binary pride colors and the other are the colors from California's Bear Flag (or the colors from the California Jedi logo your choice)

Birthday during a Pandemic

I love past-me. I am sitting at my desk and wanting a snack but not wanting to trudge to the kitchen and look for something, then I see behind my water bottle my BB-8 PEZ dispenser which I filled with strawberry PEZ earlier.

I am walking my dog, Sadie and the sky is beautiful dark blue after sunset, the moon is bright but obscured by clouds.
