Sierra's little corner of the internet

So I guess this blog is nothing but life updates now huh

housing job-search vent
I wish I had the energy to post here more, but I’m on the cusp of yet another move within the next two or three weeks. I’m still alive, but the venn diagram of readers here and followers on my socials is a perfect circle. Where do I go from here? I don’t know. Nearly two years of job applications met with only one serious interview is soul-crushing. Without a mode of transportation, I can’t even take a minimum wage service job to tide me over until I get something in my field. Read more...

Where have you been?

social-media vent
It’s been a while since I last posted, and I wish I had better news. The job hunt is worse than ever, housing is going up in the air again, and of course some shakeups with social channels. I’m kind of tired posting about how flimsy my living situation has been for more than a year now, so instead I’ll just focus on what’s most important for you to worry about. Read more...

2022 has been a complete and utter disaster. Normally, one would come up with some resolutions or reflect on the past around now, but I’m fried. That’s to be expected, having gone through five different mailing addresses and tons of health issues, just to end up in a stable enough position where it feels like all I can do is wait for the other shoe to drop, whatever that may mean.

Apple Passkeys: Passwords Aren't Dead Yet

apple fido ios ios16 ios16-1 macos security
iOS 16 is right around the corner, and one of the big features I’ve been messing around with is Apple’s Passkeys (developer.apple.com), which they claim will “end the password” as we know it. Password management is frustrating and I have more passwords than I can keep track of, but I don’t think that they will die any time soon. I thought I’d share my experience using Passkeys in a few places, and sort out exactly what they are and why at this point it’s not a primary authentication method. Read more...


health social-media
If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, don’t worry, I’m not dead. I’ve just been distant from the internet for some time now, preoccupied with health, housing issues, finding work, and getting back to finishing my degree. Despite everything, I feel a lot better than I was before my world was turned upside-down. My diet has improved, but still could be better. I’ve been pushing through anxiety to take care of myself better, and I’m starting to see the results. Read more...

A New Chapter

health housing vent
I’m finally done with college, sort of, and moved out for good. I’m not sure what happens next, but I think I deserve a break from work and exams and stuff. Going through this pandemic, getting my knee injured and not fully recovering even now, and losing my home, pets, and most of my things while going through college courses was hell. It’s over now, apart from a senior project that got put on hold during all this, but I have no classes and no on-campus life after this. Read more...

Updates On This Crazy Year

My life has been moving at a breakneck pace for the past couple months now, and a lot has happened since my last update. I’ll try to break it down by topic in no particular order. Housing Situation The “post-pandemic” (in quotes because it’s not over but businesses and the government are treating it like it is) housing issue is horrible. People in my area are getting forced out of their homes en masse now that the eviction moratorium is lifted in New York State. Read more...

Personal Log: April 8 [Apto April 2022 Part 8: City]

I always love making trips to Poseidon IV. It’s one of those touristy destinations that a lot of people shy away from because of water worlds, but it’s my favorite spot to go to. Luckily a cargo run brought me into this sector, and the ship was due for some maintenance on its sub systems. Not systems within systems, I mean sub systems. Like submarines. People thought I was nuts for buying an old deep space science vessel to run a small shipping business but the fun exotic planets pay the good money too. Read more...

Sigh… Please, try not to laugh at my voice while you listen to this. I know, I know, you’re probably wondering, “Sierra, how did you mix up the air tank hookups again”. It’s hard! There’s no difference in the wall ports! Cut me some slack will you. Wait no, if I’m still up here when you see me next, do not cut the slack. I don’t want to float away! Read more...
