### Description of situation at hand:
One thing I am interested in is my relationship to software. Sometimes I feel quite insecure about my capacity to change it and make decisions and it gets combined with some laziness. I feel a tension between my laziness and the work that it would take to be in a health relationship with my software.
More technically, I am interested in how things bounce around in computer systems. I am not sure if these two things are relted, but I hope continuous integratio
will help me.

...seeAsKidComputerGAMER - playfull experience through very problematicly constructed games. She would experience class and agressive behaviour as a norm.
...seeAsMediaSoftwareCONSUMER - got used to pay for software very early on and later continued considering this continuosly as necessary...she is lazy to switch to other software and comodifies to what ever is supporting her productivity workflow. She asumes passive role in that process.
...seeAsDependentNervousExcitableUSER - addictive and often nervous, with wide range of emotional reactions to use of software bouncing metaphores. In terms of free software she is mostly feeling intimidated and often frustrated with racial/gendered issues of USA FLOSS community. She used command line in very few times at exceptional occassions.
...seeAsFacebookTwitterInstagramUSER - 2003 early FB adopter (via Hardward boyfriend), but has mixed feelings about its use (necessity)...traumatic experience of PizzaGate (social media - alt-news)...
...seeAsSeasonalWEBMASTER - several times used and forgot HTML/CSS and use it not so often. Likely as it is not exciting enough.
- consider investing time in learning about real-time generative media scripting
- consider establishing proactive and collective relation to learning with others about FLOSS (to foster self-organizning/empowerment)
- intuition can not just outsourcing, it needs also training, self-reflection and loging
