note: writeup on my arch experience coming soon!


my keyboard

i'm typety tiping on a WASD code v3 with cherry MX browns. my boyfriend has a keyboard with blues, and i'm kinda jealous of it, but i don't mind the browns.


i haven't used a pencil since before the pandemic probably


while i've mostly shunned ballpoints in favor of the following, i do enjoy the uni-ball signo 307 and have a few refills for it (0.7mm for life). i have a sharpie s-pen that's pretty nice too.


lamy safari

i'm keeping things simple with an all-black lamy safari, fine nib. usually inked with noodler's x-feather but i have some diamines that i use if i'm feeling fruity. been considering getting a new one just for the colorfuls, maybe a twsbi eco?


i have a polaroid originals onestep but one of my cats broke it one day so that's out of commission. got plenty of pics, will upload some sometime.

i also shoot a lot of 35mm film, and up until recently worked at a lab that processed and scanned it. my weapon of choice is a black canon AE-1 which i absolutely recommend. (my sister also has an olympus point-and-shoot that i use from time to time, note the date stamps on those pics.) high ISO is my jam, and i love pushing ilford hp5 to its limits. i'd say my favorite color film is kodak ultramax 400 although i haven't shot some in a while -- i did recently get my hands on a 4-pack of it that expired in 2005, though, so i'm excited to see that.

other favorite stocks include lomo purple and portra 800.
