In the Kitchen at Cake HQ: It's the first release of 2022! We've got a big one for you today; with 20 tasty entries in the change log, we didn't know what to put in our announcement! So here is the link to our online changes:

All the times when I cannot actually stay still. Like, always. All the struggles to keep focused. And people don't get it. It's a hard task. anyone relatable? 😩

Interested in Accessibility and iOS? Want to work on cool things like Back Tap? Switch Control? VoiceOver? Sound Recognition? Well check out this role on our team! This is a Cupertino based role, no remote. ObjC/Swift great but not req'd.

This is a rather long rant. 

FML. I seriously dislike people who are many faced. In the literal sense of the word. F***cking subposters.
I do not know how much warning this is but because I want to be careful and rant at the same time.
I really do not want people like this in my life, so I blocked but they continue and I happen to be able to see the posts. I had reasons to block, it is not as if I did without any. But I did not know I owe an explanation to the blocked one. I do no't think I do. It's the internet, and just an acquaintance, after all. Plus I cannot have friends who always think negatively of the world. I know saying there is worse than your situation sounds invalidating, but sometimes too much negativity leads to ungratefulness. And I am not tolerating that. Positivity is a good thing, It is okay to be negative, but it cannot constantly be that. You also cannot hate someone without a reason, simply because they can do something and you cannot.

Reading audiobooks is still reading.

If you say you read an audiobook you don't have to "correct" yourself. I'd argue that you /shouldn't/, that you'd get less correct.

There's no need to say "well no I didn't read it" if it was an audiobook. There's no need to put "reading" in scare quotes.

It's reading just as much as reading print is.

I know there are worse problems, but it sucks having my favored reading format denigrated by sighted people, even to the point of them denying it's "real."

For the avoidance of doubt (I think I've just been softblocked over this??), I am not saying that visual and aural reading are identical. As a partially-sighted person with typical hearing, I find one modality much easier than the other!

I'm not making a point about sensory input. You can prefer one to the other! That's fine! This is a call to action, to stop saying and to watch out for others saying that audiobooks aren't "real" or don't "count" or are somehow inferior to print. That's all.

The problem is not the problem - The problem is your attitude about the problem.

I have nothing constructive to post, cake cake cake cake cake cake cake cake cake! Give me more cake! And coffee!

I forgot my other tooting tootish tootly mastodon instance posts on Twitter and so I am not constructive today. But hi! Also, I want more cake cake cake and coffee!

I haven't been on here for ages, so hi world or um, dragons, should I say? I hope all are okay and everyone had a good Christmas. happy new year, by the way, I don't care how late it is. Because I am always somehow late. I had too much Bulgarian food and now I need a food break. πŸ˜› I also need to find a way to update JAWS and its awful emoji support, so I need to find a way to compile a dictionary. That's going to be a pain in the technology behind, but I might just be able to get most of them, or something. I also have soo many projects and stuff to finish up. And I have barely started. πŸ˜‚ Well, I guess that's that for now, you all have fun and keep readin, writing or whatever there you have decided doing. I am continuing to wander where to get code from. Google., I hope you will be helpful enough.
Well, enought ranting now. Have fun!

Hii! Haven't posted here in ages or something.
We're decorating next week for Christmas, hopefully. If not, we'll be displeased with the family and their lack of enthusiasm to celebrate christmas.
Classes suck and the sleep schedules totally went down the funny bone of my elbow, so, now we don't sleep. We just sit here doing sooo many things at once.
See you in a couple of days when someone comes up with an idea for a post, until then, bye!

Motivation's out of the window. Oh well, let's get it back, then. πŸ˜πŸ‰ PS: I know I post a lot, just don't roar at me too loudly.πŸ‰πŸ˜‚

Good aftermorning!
Hope all are well. I have some ideas for some things, but I also have so many assignments to finish, that I can't make my ideas come to life, so with that, creativity is outta the window, I guess. HTML stuff to finish, then coffee, perhaps, then maybe, just maybe some creative stuff. Depends when I finish up HTML assignments. I also slept half of the day away because I stayed up until late. Sleep is overrated that's all and I wish I didn't sleep, just do what I want to do and have time for everything. I guess that really doesn't work that way, does it? Enough of my ramblings, stay safe! πŸ‰πŸ’™πŸ˜

Can't find a good enough service that'll describe me images. Any idea?

Oh, let's try out this app because I can or something. The keys really remind me of Twitter. :P

Go away, evil programming languages class! I skipped CSS, not sure if any of my stuff's correct. And their grading system ought to be broken, because it gave me all the 25 points. Like, impossible!

I just realised I feel super stupid because I have nothing informative to share, except that I have a test tomorrow. In programming languages. All of the lectures are on HTML, of which I already know quite a few. But the last one is about CSS. Tell me, fellows with visual impairment, is there a point in learning CSS? And how utterly inaccessible is it? I would like to be prepared for the worst scenarios possible and an absolute possible fail tomorrow. I definitely didn't study according to the lectures. So much for being an example in studies for people like my sister who don't study at all. πŸ‰πŸ˜‚
