ultranos: kino standing, staring ahead (contemplative)
Let's try actually using this thing more, because god knows we're all going to need each other.

As something of another chapter in the ongoing clusterfuck that is my life, I've been trying to figure out my next move. (the description of this year as a backgammon game where you always make the best possible move but the dice fucking hate you remains as apt as ever)

I will admit that there's a large part of me that is starting to run on anger and spite. Mostly in the form of if the people who voted for destroying my future can sleep easy, then I'm gonna turn around and spend my life tearing down everything they love. And, you know, in the process make the world better because fuck them.

So I've been poking around non-profits and advocacy groups for clean energy, clean water, affordable medical technologies, etc. I've got this collection of technical knowledge, and I want to feel useful. It's never been about the money, beyond "have enough to survive". But the more I think about this idea, the more I really like the idea of throwing myself into this world, even if it's taking technical papers and work and translating that into workable lay-speak. I'm stumbling around semi-blindly, since my previous experience in non-profit has been on "R&D for military applications" side of things, which...well, you can understand my hesitance in that when I don't trust the people in charge less far than I can throw them. Anyone have any ideas of where might need an engineer, that'd be great.

"Crap! Um, I've got a charred piece of meat here."
