At this time: nope, you can’t.

Yes, it is still available at dearnintendo.sladewatkins.com. Folks can sign the open letter until March 2023, at which point, it will be archived.

As part of Lobby Day, I spoke to several lawmakers in New York State, including my senator, about my experience in BOCES programs over the years. Part of that included advocating for the continuation of funding for my former school.

I’m a one-man show, meaning this operation: it’s all handled by me.

The only affiliation I publicly have is with the Wallymer group. My friends and I work on projects under that name with help and guidance from some of our mentors.

Well, I work on Kakariko Herald full-time, which I juggle with some other secret projects! I love what I do and wouldn’t change it for the world. If you’d like to support me, you can find me over on KH!

It’s still OneCMS, but instead of being entirely custom, it’s a fork of WordPress with some OneCMS features built-in. In fact, it’s based on the same iteration I use over on Kakariko Herald.

  • My personal SIM card is in a 2020 iPhone SE, as I’m currently test driving iOS 16.
  • I also use a Pixel 6 running Android 13.

TL:DR — I just can’t feasibly read all the emails that come across my desk.

It’s a long story, but I get a lot of emails every day (around 200-300 at peak), so I really couldn’t keep up with it myself, and make sure I’m getting the work that I need to do done. So, with that, I handed over the keys to someone else on my team who has their own inbox on sladewatkins(dot)com. I get looped in if they think the project is interesting and meets some internal standards (aka “vetting”) of whomever is asking.

This process, alone, has not only made sure I don’t walk myself into a PR disaster, but it has also limited the amount of things I need to read, process, or otherwise be aware of each week. That, in turn, has helped my mental wellbeing (especially with all the other stuff I have to worry about.) I know that’s a long explanation and that’s why there’s a TL:DR above. Thanks for understanding, though!
