I'm Marrub, also known as Asther or Ash. My shadow's name is Zoe, but you can refer to us interchangeably.
My birthday is May 9, 2000. I have* ADHD, Major Depressive Disorder, and Gender Dysphoria. The latter two are treated medically. I'm plural. Also my avatar is named "my avatar, catenbies, they/them (including the pronouns)" including the parenthetical. I'm panromantic, grey asexual and polyamorous. My favorite colors are mint green, heliotrope, blush pink, and lemon chiffon.
I'm interested in programming, drawing, photography, music and language and have been self-taught in all of these fields due to issues dealing with school. Some more specific areas of interest of mine in programming include game engines, reverse engineering, and compilers.
If you really want to know more it would be best to just get to know me (or us.) I won't bite, so drop me a line. (Wait, isn't that backwards?) Or you can just stalk me on whatever and glean information from that like a weirdo. (I can relate.)
* As according to several GPs I've been to. I don't condone the use of institutions as authority but I'd also rather not rattle off my issues that don't just have a nice label on my medical record.
My programming languages of choice are Rust, Ruby, Racket, C, and Assembly. I also am somewhat skilled in in Python, C++, Lua, and OCaml. Automation languages I'm somewhat skilled in include Fish, Bash, awk, sed, Make, Ninja, Meson, CMake, and Regex. Scripting languages I'm skilled in include ZScript and AngelScript. Assembly variants I'm skilled in include 6502, 65816, and Z80.
I enjoy web development even though I hate actually working with such technologies and ecosystems. The Internet is one of the most vital parts of my life, so being able to simply create anything I want on it is wonderful.
What I enjoy more, though, is writing code for games, being able to craft an entire experience from the ground up is a task that is both difficult and fun to me. I don't really play videogames that often, but making them is something I try to do often. You can find my projects on the main page.
I love listening to music. I'm almost always listening to something, normal or avant-garde, I have to have something playing to be productive at anything.
My music library is always growing, and I still have a ton of CDs I still need to rip. Please suggest me music at your leisure. I love ambient, techno, house, artcore, rock, heavy metal, death metal, and everything inbetween.
Learning and understanding language, foreign and native, and the history of language is something I do consciously and unconsciously. I didn't learn much history in school, but the history of language can teach you a lot about the history of the world without you even trying to do so.
I've studied, in order, English, Old Irish, Russian, Greek, Japanese, Middle English, Ancient Egyptian, Lojban, Toki Pona, and Chinese. Of those, I know how to write (but not read) Ogham, read Russian cyrillic, read and write the Greek alphabet, and I can to some extent read, write and speak Japanese. I am semi fluent in Toki Pona, and am rusty at Lojban, but getting better.
My native language is English. Apparently I learned some backwards southern dialect which I've been trying to get out of me for years now. I also seem to misspell a lot of common words which is odd to me.
