i've put my actual name as a display name to follow my own instance politics, but i'm quite sad to let "sissyphus" go.
"the myth of sisyphus" is one of my favorite philosophy books, and the line "one must imagine sisyphus happy" was lifechanging for me when I was a student in a perpetual value crisis.
i am a sissy, i'm flamboyant, and life is a struggle with the absurd. and yet, i am happy. happy with the lack of inherent meaning and happy with what (who) i am.
