Howdy, I'm Cryptid; a disabled 21 year old who discovered Anarchism last year during BLM protests. There was a popup anarchist library and I got hooked. I'm still doing my reading but damn does the current system need to go. I'm a coding student who is going into software development. I hate the current tech industry but I need a job that will give me enough money and insurance to pay for medical bills, as well as be flexible when I have flare ups. I'm looking into offline networks, and other things that could be used to help folks against the system. I really love the outdoors and getting out on hikes. I am joined by my dog Boo, a 2 year old standard poodle who helps me manage my PTSD. Being able to get out on a trail and just enjoy the scenery without people really helps put things in perspective. Life is a brilliant, amazing creation that just happens to have exploded on this tiny rock shooting through space. Every tree, every insect, every person is a miracle of creation; something to be recognized. Admittedly there are loads of dumb humans that make it hard to remember, and some people should only be greeted with a milkshake to the face. I prefer more peaceful ways of direct action but I'm not new to violent direct action (and support it after other avenues have been tried and failed). In the future I hope to start my own pop up library to pass knowledge on. I found this site when I was looking for "how to find punk concerts near me" and this website popped up. So glad it did because man, is it good to find new sites.
